by Michelle

Morden Hall is a stunning Georgian mansion, entirely renovated and redesigned in 2015 as a dedicated, exclusive use wedding venue. Conveniently located in south London, just a few minutes walk from the London Underground, the house is set in 250 acres of National Trust Parkland a haven of tranquility amongst a bustling city.

Ceremonies can take place in either the grand Willow Room with its elegant fireplace and doors that open on to the North Lawn, or the elegant Hawthorn Room with stunning original features and views over the grounds.

Following your ceremony, there’s a wonderful opportunity enjoy summer drinks on the pretty North Lawn beside the River Wandle. Or, in cooler weather, drinks and canapés can be served in the house itself. With the light filled Mulberry Room awaiting your wedding party for whatever style of wedding breakfast you choose, we must hand you straight over to the team at Morden Hall to tell you more.
