Weddings & Receptions

Our wedding coordinators can be involved as much or as little as you like from recommending one of our three wedding packages or consulting with our Head Chef to create a menu exclusively for your guests. They are on hand to assist you all the way from your first visit through to sharing the day itself with you.

The Prince Albert Suite during a wedding.

With a wedding licence for two stunning suites – The Grade II listed Mappin Pavilion and The Prince Albert Suite, both with outdoor space; ZSL London Zoo has a wealth of experience in planning weddings that are unique to you.
Bathed in natural light from the 360 degree views, the elegant Grade II listed Mappin Pavilion is situated in the heart of the zoo overlooking emus and wallabies in their outback enclosure, perfect for a more intimate wedding.

A grand banquet in our Prince Albert Suite or an informal barbeque on the tranquil Prince Albert Lawn and Terrace offers flexible and relaxing surroundings for you and your guests to celebrate.


Civil Partnerships

Elegant Ceremony SeatingZSL London Zoo is proud to offer the perfect location for a civil partnership.

Why not choose The Mappin Pavilion to say ‘I do’, followed by drinks and canapes in the Komodo Dragon & Galapagos Tortoise House, before returning to the Pavilion for a fork buffet, barbecue, or seated dinner.

Dancing is available here and in The Prince Albert Suite until midnight, with extensions until 2am for the nocturnals among you!


Receptions
Max the eurasian eagle owl, featuring in a wedding animal encounter.

Couples love to get married at ZSL London Zoo due to it's unique and fun setting, not to mention that all profits from the wedding go directly into helping critically endangered animals.

Nothing shows off our unusual venue like a reception in one of our Animal Houses! These are available for 1.5 or 3 hours after the zoo closes, and can be booked individually or in conjunction with a suite where the ceremony would be held.

Booking a live animal encounter to meet your guests is wonderful way to entertain your guests!
