Cambridge Cottage at Kew Gardens - A brief history

Augusta, the Prince of Wales from 1719-1772 followed her late husband's plans to improve Kew Gardens, spending an estimated £30-40,000 extending it and adding features and buildings. She was assisted in this undertaking by Lord Bute, her botanical advisor and a friend of her late husband and a well-known botanist who resided in Cambridge Cottage. After Augusta's death it was purchased by King George III in 1772 and one of the subsequent residents was the Duke of Cambridge who had it remodelled in 1840 and extended to make it his permanent residence.

Kew acquired Cambridge Cottage and the gardens in 1904 and the latter was named the 'Duke's Garden' rather than the more obvious 'Cambridge Cottage Garden' to avoid confusion in the horticultural circles with the classic 'cottage garden'. Cambridge Cottage now houses the Kew Gardens Gallery and is know to everyone at Kew as 'Kew Gardens Gallery'.

 

Wedding photographer opportunities at Cambridge Cottage Kew Gardens Surrey

Cambridge Cottage is an elegant Surrey wedding venue situated in the world renowned Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew and is a lovely venue for a wedding photographer to work at.

Wedding ceremonies are held in the refined Drawing Room which accommodates up to 80 wedding guests and the airy Gallery next door, which displays botanical art of past and present, seats up to 80 guests for the wedding breakfast. After dining, guests can return to the Drawing Room whilst the Gallery is made over for the rest of the evening’s celebrations. The number of guests with these two rooms plus the ante-room and lobby can be increased to 150 for the evening wedding reception.

There are many photographic opportunities and different vantage points inside for capturing memorable wedding pictures and the corridor that connects The Drawing Room and The Gallery also exhibits some fascinating and colourful LondonTransport posters which have advertised Kew Gardens as a rail destination since 1908.

Both rooms open up onto the Duke’s Garden, which is a secluded and picturesque space perfect for group wedding photographs as well as informal reportage wedding photography. As well as being a lovely area to take the Bride and Groom off for some romantic personal wedding photographs there is also the opportunity to take a buggy tour of some of the most popular parts of Kew Gardens, weather permitting.

Recommended spots include Kew Palace and the Queens's Garden; the Secluded Garden (near the Princess of Wales Conservatory); the Rock Garden (again near the Princess of Wales Conservatory); the Palm House (with the pond in the front of it and the lawns and vista behind); King William's Temple (near the Temperate House); the Sackler Crossing; the Temperate House and the Japanse Gateway.

There is only ever time to get a few of these so the Kew Garden's wedding cooardinator and the buggy guide staff will advise what is possible. A combination of the above and other smaller and closer sites such as the fabulous Wisteria Tree or the Hive are things to consider at the time.

But whatever you do decide on, the scope is there for some lovely romantic wedding pictures of the newly wed couple.

Needless to say the staff at Kew Gardens are all very professional, friendly and willing to help make the couples wedding one to remember.
