Iconic wedding

Create an iconic wedding experience by celebrating your special day in two of our most atmospheric locations.

This iconic wedding experience offers the chance to mark your special day in two of our most atmospheric locations – the Nash Conservatory and the Temperate House.

Classic ceremony and drinks reception

Exchange your vows in the Nash Conservatory, an enchanting 19th century glasshouse. With capacity for a civil ceremony of up to 200 guests and floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides, this stunning glasshouse provides an abundance of natural daylight, filling the space with a warm glow all year round.

While your guests enjoy drinks on the secluded lawn behind the Conservatory, you’ll have time to tour the Gardens in an escorted buggy for photos in our most scenic locations.  

Dinner in the Temperate House 

Following your ceremony, guests will be transported across the Gardens in the Kew Explorer for a dinner in the iconic Temperate House. The world’s largest Victorian glasshouse, the Temperate House is the perfect location for a breathtaking reception. 

A glistening cathedral, the freshly restored venue is home to 10,000 species of plants from the world’s temperate zones, offering you and your guests a rare opportunity to dine and dance in a space that is truly alive.
