Imagine your dream wedding location


Kenwood Hampstead Lane, London NW3 7JR Tel: 020 7973 3416

Think of elegant late 18th century society gatherings, with men in tight breeches and frilly shirts exchanging lingering looks with ladies in long, low‑cut gowns as they lead them in the quadrille. Then imagine your own romantic wedding day celebration, set in the same stylish surroundings that once hosted glittering balls for lords and ladies over 200 years ago. If you yearn for the same romantic atmosphere amid priceless artworks and stunning historic interiors, then Kenwood will be an ideal location for your wedding day celebrations.

A sense of history By choosing a superb historic location for your celebrations, you bring the echoes of the people and events that have shaped it through the centuries, to give your day a deeper, more meaningful quality. Standing on the edge of Hampstead Heath, Kenwood was built in 1700 as an aristocratic retreat away from the cares of the capital. From 1764 to 1779, the house was remodelled in the fashionable neoclassical style of the day for William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield by renowned designer Robert Adam. He added the imposing portico, a third storey and a new wing, containing his breathtaking library. As you celebrate at Kenwood you are surrounded by an exquisite collection of fine art, with paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Gainsborough and Reynolds, bequeathed to the nation in 1927 by Edward Cecil Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh.


Yours for the day Kenwood is one of London’s most elegant mansions, with its graceful white stucco exteriors an imposing and wellloved landmark. It has spectacular views towards the centre of the city. Green Room, Music Room and Dining Room Ceremony, drinks reception and dinner: 50 Impress your guests with drinks in the Green Room and Music Room before moving through to the Dining Room where Kenwood’s finest old masters look down as you dine and raise your glasses to toast your future.
