When looking for a Wedding Venue, London and the surrounding areas have it all, from Country Manors, Abandoned Warehouses, to Museums holding the most beautiful collections of artwork that you’ve ever seen. One of these stunning Museums is The Wallace Collection housed in Hertford House and located in Central London, just off busy Oxford Street and a few minutes walk from Baker Street. We were lucky enough to be invited for a private tour of the museum as one of their new accredited production suppliers to see how we can help enhance this beautiful space for future events.
Home to 25 galleries including Titan and Rembrant, The Wallace Collection is now open daily to the public as a National Museum of French 18th Century Art, furniture and porcelain after Lady Wallace fulfilled her husband, Sir Richard Wallace's wishes after his death, by donating the entire collection to the Nation. The collection is now held in an 18th Century palatial town house, where Lords and Ladies once dined, making this the perfect, exclusive venue for the Wedding of your Dreams.
After your ceremony, you and your guests will arrive through the Grand Gates and be welcomed into the Landing and Galleries for your drinks and canapé reception. The Galleries consist of 6 newly refurbished rooms covered with french silk wall coverings and beautiful silk curtains and are home to a variety of 18th French furnishings and art, some, once belonging to historical figures such as Marie Antoinette.
Your dinner/ dance would take place in the delightful Glazed Courtyard. Originally used as the families Sculpture Garden, the Courtyard is now covered and available for Weddings and Events in all seasons. Seating up to 140 guests for a dinner and dance, the contemporary space beautifully contrasts the 18th Century Architecture of the house itself, creating a magical area to finish off of your evening with your family and friends.
One of the museums most beautiful spaces is The Great Gallery which has just been re opened and it’s looking even more grand and more elegant than it did before. This incredible space is perfect for small, intimate performances or dinners prior to an evening party or even a larger drinks reception with speeches.
