Grand venue for a grand wedding. The high ceiling and the echo in the main hall made it a magical experience for me and for the 500+ guests that were in attendance.

Really impressive, a beautiful space with a wide range of artifacts from all around the world - some of the large architectural pieces are incredible, and the garden space is delightful as well. Recommended.

    About Us

    Celebrate your wedding day surrounded by friends, family, and world-famous works of art spanning centuries at Victoria and Albert Museum London. The ‘world’s greatest museum of applied and decorative art and design’ is available for after-hours wedding receptions and dinners and is one of the most magical, intriguing wedding venues in South Kensington. 

    The Scene at Victoria and Albert Museum London

    Queen Victoria and Prince Albert are oft-quoted as the most famously in love of the royal couples. So where better to celebrate your wedding day than the very museum that’s named after them, Victoria and Albert Museum London. In the picturesque South Kensington, the V&A is a sight to behold: a large, majestic building of classical and decorative architecture, dating to the 1850s, with marble, elaborate tiling, and stained-glass windows. Inside, fashion, jewellery, art, photography, and design fill the rooms and galleries, creating a unique setting for any wedding.

    The V&A isn’t licensed for civil ceremonies so once you’ve said your vows and the crowds have cleared, have your run of the museum and soak up the magic of this setting while you enjoy your wedding reception. Couples can choose between nine different venues within the museum, from grand rooms to galleries, and an outdoor space – or combine a few to experience different areas of this striking location.  

    With a dedicated wedding manager and a choice of approved caterers – including Asian and Kosher options – you can put your own personal twist on one of London’s most iconic venues.
