Situated close to Putney and Richmond Park. Grove House offers every couple exclusive use of the venue. With a variety of suppliers, we have a team of specialists who can work with couples to style and transform this London wedding venue to their own taste and vision.
From 1622 until circa 1790 Roehampton Great House stood on the site of Grove House and was the second largest house in Surrey. Between 1779 and 1793 the Great House was demolished and Grove House, designed by James Wyatt, was re-built. In 1921 Dr Claude Montefiore bought Grove House on behalf of the Froebel Educational Institute for Froebel College. Grove House is now part of the University of Roehampton.
2. How does your venue cater to different wedding sizes and styles?
Grove House has 3 distinct spaces that couples can use on their wedding day depending on the size of their wedding party making it a versatile London wedding venue suitable for weddings as small as 20 guests up to 150 guests.
The Portrait Room is a wonderful setting to bring friends and family together to witness a marriage, licensed for up to 150 guests. The floor to ceiling glass windows and period features provide a bright and spacious setting to say ‘I do’. However, for more intimate ceremonies our lovely Terrace and Adam room can accommodate up to 50 guests. If couples prefer to be closer to nature our lawned gardens offer the perfect setting.

The property itself offers elegant Georgian and Victorian interiors for both civil ceremonies and receptions with many of the original features remaining, adding to the venue’s unique charm. Our extensive lawns and rose gardens are the perfect setting for welcome drinks and with four acres of grounds this makes for a pretty unique feature in a London wedding venue. Grove House also has some television history magic having been the backdrop for a number of feature films and prime time BBC programmes over the years!

4. How do you work with couples to bring their wedding vision to life?

We love to work closely with our couples to help bring their dream wedding day to life. We provide one to one viewings of the venue when couples first enquire with us. After confirming their wedding date, we ensure we keep a close working relationship with each couple leading up to their big day. Each year we hold open day events where we invite our confirmed couples along allowing them time to get to know our team and our suppliers. Around 8 weeks before their wedding we invite the couple for a final meeting at Grove House. This allows them a chance to see the venue once more, to meet their on the day wedding coordinator and to talk through the finer details of their day.

9. What are the most frequently overlooked aspects by couples when choosing a London wedding venue?
We do think most couples we meet are very organised and prepared for the wedding planning process and have considered most aspects of their day however some of our top things to not overlook are:
Capacity – couples need to have a clear idea of their guest list prior to searching for a venue – as depending on their guestlist this will eliminate certain venues immediately and streamline their search process.
Location – the location of a wedding venue is so important – before falling in love with a venue couples need to be realistic about guest logistics – how will guests reach their chosen venue and where will they stay? We are lucky at Grove House to be close to both central London and have great transport links to Heathrow for guests travelling further afield. 
Budget – Gathering as many quotes as possible is really important before securing a venue for couples to ensure they can realise their dream day – there are sometimes forgot costs that need to be considered.  
10. What should couples know about planning their wedding at your venue that they might not consider initially?
We have recently launched an Instagram series to help couples plan their wedding by checking off key items in the planning process as they countdown to their wedding, we want to ensure our couples are supported as best as possible throughout the process of planning their big day.
