As Bexley wedding photographers, Danson House is one of our local wedding venues, and it is a real gem in Bexley’s crown! It is a beautiful building and very popular with couples looking to get married in a classical mansion setting.
Danson House is a Grade 1 Listed Palladian villa set in the grounds of Danson Park, Bexley. Built in 1766 by the architect Sir Robert Taylor, it has wonderfully decorated rooms for your wedding ceremony. The steps of Danson House and the surrounding park grounds make ideal photographic locations too!
The London Borough of Bexley Council took over the management of the building in 2016. The Registrar’s Offices also moved into the building from Sidcup Manor.
Danson House Ceremony Rooms
Depending on availability, you will have several ceremony rooms to choose from: The Dining Room – decorated in romantic gold’s and paintings telling stories of love. Sir John Boyds Room – an informal room, located on the top floor, with stunning views over Danson Park for medium sized wedding parties. The Library – also known as the music room hosting the magnificent Danson organ and overlooking the green lawns. The Salon – an octagonal room with sumptuous wall coverings and stylish decoration. The Johnston Room – an informal room with stunning views, located on the top floor of Danson House for smaller wedding parties.
- Bridal Cars are allowed to park outside the house, but family, friends and other members of your wedding party will be required to park elsewhere. The closest area is The Stables pub and restaurant.
- This venue gets very busy during peak wedding season, so make sure you liaise with the staff. It’s always good to know how many weddings are taking place. You can then give your guests an idea of arrival time (too early isn’t a good idea at peak times!) and also where to congregate whilst waiting to go in. Generally speaking, members of the wedding party, family and friends will wait outside until the bride and groom have spoken with registrars.
- There is a lift for anyone who finds the steps difficult to navigate.
- Group photos are usually taken on the steps, but in peak wedding season there often isn’t time to get many smaller group shots. We recommend moving to the garden opposite the house. There is more room and it tends to be a little quieter for photos. It’s also great for confetti shots too!
