Celebration photography at Osterley Park

View of the front of Osterley House

Are you interested in finding a unique venue to capture your special day? Here at Osterley, we have celebration photography packages to suit every budget.

A rare survival in Greater London, Osterley Park and House provides a peaceful retreat with 357 acres of parkland, lakes and an impressive neoclassical mansion. The House was remodelled by Robert Adam from 1761, transforming Osterley into the ‘Palace of Palaces’ that you see today.

Osterley is available to pre-book for wedding or celebration photography from Monday to Sunday, between 10am and 1.30pm or 1.30pm and 4pm, throughout the year. Each timeslot is booked exclusively for two people, although for some dates we are unable to take bookings due to other onsite events. It is not possible to turn up on the day without pre-booking.
