York House, Twickenham is a 17th century Grade II listed building, with a fascinating history, set in beautiful grounds on the banks of the River Thames.
Licensed for 75 guests, the Loggia overlooks a secluded garden at the rear of York House. Decorated in light and airy neutral colours, with beautiful flower arrangements and a long aisle, it is an ideal setting for all ceremonies. The room also has a music system which can play CDs or iPhones and iPods. Alternatively, you may wish to arrange for a small group of live musicians to enhance your ceremony and atmosphere.
Ceremonies are booked to start on the hour, and we allow an hour in total for your ceremony including completion of pre-ceremony paperwork checking. If you wish to maintain the tradition of not meeting until you meet at the start of the ceremony, this can be arranged – although please note that we cannot guarantee to keep you out of sight of all of your guests.
After your ceremony, you will lead your guests directly out into the gardens for photographs. You are welcome to use confetti - but it must be biodegradable only - to preserve the beauty of the gardens for everyone. Please note that it is not possible to serve alcohol in the Loggia, or in the gardens.
No front of House parking is permitted for ceremonies taking place in The Loggia room.
There is a two hour maximum stay (9am - 5pm) public car park available at the venue and a multi-story car park in nearby Arragon Road. Twickenham Railway Station is nearby in London Road and a number of buses serve the area. More details on how to get to York House.(pdf, 170KB)
