Lauderdale House, Highgate, London

Lauderdale House is Grade II listed dating back to 1582 and, as you can imagine, has quite a history.  Probably most notably Lauderdale House was home to Nell Gwynn, mistress of King Charles II, real life Cinderella and possibly my great great great something if the family rumour mill is to be believed!

The house is situated within Waterlow Park and is now a community hub hosting arts and education programmes as well as events including weddings.  If you choose to host your wedding at Lauderdale House then every penny goes towards preserving the future of the house and it’s huge benefit within the community.

There are two rooms available to you for your ceremony and/or reception.  The house is very versitile so you can choose to marry at the local regristry office then go on to Lauderdale House or get married at Lauderdale House and go onto another venue for your reception:

Lower Gallery & Entrance Hall – Based on the ground floor with French doors opening out onto the Park terrace is the light and airy Gallery and Hall which forms and L shape and can be sectioned off for ceremony and reception.

Long Gallery – on the 1st floor offers views across the garden and more of a barn like feel.

We embrace both traditional and modern approaches and
the spaces are flexible and we welcome the opportunity to discuss what combination might work best for you.
