Dulwich Picture Gallery wedding – Misook & Sungmin

Dulwich Picture Gallery in South London was the location for Misook and Sungmin’s intimate wedding. A Monday wedding, when the gallery is normally closed. A venue that means you can get married surrounded by Old Masters. Works by Gainsborough, Canaletto, Rubens and Rembrandt, amongst others, hang on the walls of the Soane gallery where the ceremony took place. It’s a unique London wedding venue.

Opened in 1817, it’s the oldest public art gallery in England. Being in the quiet, leafy Dulwich ‘village’, just north of the South Circular road, it is probably not on many tourist’s  map, not being in central London. It also houses the most stolen painting in the world. Rembrandt’s ‘Portrait of Jacob de Gheyn III’, that has been stolen and recovered, four times.

( I have to admit, despite having a degree in art history myself, I’ve never paid it a visit. May have to go back now. )

Family and friends gathered outside the main doors ( very strict opening policy ) as Misook and Sungmin got ready around the corner. The plan was to head inside and have half an hour or so of music before the ceremony. The timings had slipped somewhat and there was an issue with the sound system I think. Nevertheless the music did eventually take place. First Sungmin’s father on clarinet and then one of the wedding guests sang. He just happened to be a famous singer who had flown over from Korea for the wedding.

The ceremony completed and a wedding bouquet thrown in the gallery (!), Misook and Sungmin then led the way to the wedding reception. A very short walk up the road, to the eighteenth century mansion, now bar, Belair House. It describes itself as ‘the height of vintage chic’. Enroute, a few minutes out to take some portraits in the setting sunshine. The spot is aptly named ‘Lovers Walk’. A few drinks on the front lawn in the glowing sunlight before heading inside and upstairs to a buffet meal. More singing followed and then an elegant first dance.

I lovely small London wedding, at a unique ceremony venue that Dulwich Picture Gallery is, for a lovely couple.

Here are a few images from the day…
