Wedding receptions and engagement parties

Black and white wedding table decorations

Orpington Village Hall is the perfect location for your wedding reception or engagement party, close to transport links and ample parking, it is easily accessible for friends and family based locally or further afield.

Backdrop for wedding photos
Priory Gardens make a great backdrop for wedding photography

The spacious halls offer a completely blank canvas for you to make your own, we have a selection of recommended suppliers to help realise your decorative dreams. Either hall can be configured however you like, we can build you a stage for your top table or maybe just for you and your spouse. We can supply and set up the tables and chairs, to your specified plan, or you can bring in your own suppliers and coordinators. You can have a stand-alone bar set-up in the hall, or simply use the catering hatch into the kitchen to dispense drinks. The choice is yours.

You can even take advantage of the historic, and very pretty, Priory Gardens for your wedding photos. It is only a short walk away in practice but visually a million miles away from the busy High Street.

We can host anywhere from 30 to 180 guests, so no one needs to feel left out. Our facilities are completely accessible for wheelchair users, so mobility need not be an issue, and should you be inviting an army of small children and babes in arms, worry not, we have baby changing facilities. You can even book out our conference room if you think your guests would benefit from a private feeding room.
