An occasion as special as your wedding or civil partnership demands a special venue.

Our 105 acre wildlife reserve is a scenic mosaic of lakes, pools, meadows and gardens which are home to countless wildlife species including kingfishers, butterflies and damselflies.

London Wetland Centre brings the countryside to London; it’s just 10 minutes from Hammersmith but it could be a world away. You and your guests can enjoy beautiful, relaxing surroundings combined with easy access from central London and the South.

Our Water’s Edge room and the Observatory offer panoramic views of the main lake with the London skyline as a backdrop. These light, spacious rooms provide a ‘rural’ setting but with the convenience of a capital location.

WWT London Wetland Centre offers an unrivalled setting for civil partnership and marriage ceremonies. We have two venues which are approved for ceremonies, the Observatory and Wetland Living.

The Observatory can host a maximum of 110 guests for a ceremony, and 160 for a buffet reception, while Wetland Living is able to accommodate 42 guests for an intimate ceremony and drinks reception. Our catering services, can be tailor-made to suit your requirements.

WWT London Wetland Centre is part of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust so by holding your wedding here you will be directly contributing to our global conservation work. All wedding couples receive one-year membership to the Wildlife and Wetland Trust, enabling you to visit without charge all of our centres throughout the UK.

We just wanted to write and tell you what a great wedding day we had. Thank you to you all for making it run so smoothly and it being such a special day.” Rosemary & Richard.
