Weddings

Few wedding venues are as atmospheric and inspiring as the William Morris Gallery. The Georgian features and award-winning displays are guaranteed to impress your guests, while the beautiful surroundings of Lloyd Park provide an unforgettable backdrop to your day.

The Gallery is now an approved venue for weddings and civil partnerships, so you can hold both your ceremony and reception in one of London's most romantic settings.

Acanthus Room wedding package

Taking its name from one of Morris's most famous patterns, the Acanthus Room hosts intimate ceremonies – and a drinks toast if required – for up to 35 people. The bright top-floor room, once part of the servants’ quarters, features painted wooden panelling pre-dating the house itself. On the wall hangs Red Dahlias, a beautiful floral oil painting by Frank Brangwyn.

Ceremonies in the Acanthus Room can take place at any time during the week, including weekends and evenings. This package includes use of the Acanthus Room for up to three hours.

Size: 5.7m x 6.0m

Story Lounge wedding package

The Story Lounge, on the historic landing of the Gallery, can accommodate ceremonies for up to 50 people. You and your guests will make your way to the Lounge by ascending the grand 18th century staircase, made of Spanish sweet chestnut. If you wish, you can follow your ceremony with a drinks toast in our Tea Room overlooking Lloyd Park.

Reception catering options

Our orangery-style Tea Room provides the perfect setting for celebratory food and drink. Whether it’s a wine reception with canapés, a wedding buffet or a more formal dinner, our caterers will work with you to create your perfect menu, using seasonal and local produce where possible.

Catering for your reception can be arranged through one of our approved caterers:

As the Gallery is a listed building housing an important collection, for conservation reasons clients are not permitted to serve their own food or drink in the Gallery or to bring in other external caterers. Guests are not permitted to take food or drink into the galleries or exhibitions.
