A brief history of Merton Register Office, Morden Park House
Merton Register Office is situated in Morden Park House, hence the use of both names and is a lovely restored 18th Century Georgian House which is a wonderful Surrey wedding venue, one that is our ‘local’ and where we have covered countless weddings over the years. Worth noting that confusion sometimes arises with nearby Morden Hall Park which is closer to Morden town center and is a National Trust property.
Morden Park House was built at the top of a hill in the 1770’s for John Ewart, a local distiller and merchant and it formed part of the estate which also included landscaped gardens, enclosed parkland and Morden Park Farm. The Beverley Brook, a minor tributary of The Thames runs at the bottom of the hill. After many years of neglect Morden Park House was restored and is today a Grade ll Listed building its entrance from London Road being shared with South Thames College campus and Morden Park Swimming pool.
Merton Register Office, Morden Park House Surrey wedding information and wedding photographer opportunities
We love working at Morden Park House, it's a very relaxed and friendly Surrey wedding venue and we have covered weddings there in every room for every month for many years and know it extremely well. The Ewart Room is the largest of the four rooms, taking up the whole space from left to right on the top floor as you look to the front of the building and can hold up to 100 guests. With terracotta coloured walls and plenty of light coming in from the wall of windows it's a great room for atmospheric wedding pictures especially for the wedding photographer with its long walk down the aisle. It's also a great room to lean out of to get a large everyone wedding photo down below.
The Lord Nelson Room, located at the top of the main stairs looking out onto the courtyard at the back, was formerly a gentleman's games room. It has a lemon and blue colour scheme and is the second largest room seating up to 40 guests. The Sheridan Room which is located on the ground floor to the left as you enter the main entrance has a green and yellow colour scheme, can seat up to 20 guests or 30 in total and is our favourite room of them all. With its French doors leading out to the luscious green of Morden Park it offers plenty of beautiful natural light perfect for those atmospheric and romantic ceremony wedding photographs. Finally there is the Georgian Room which seats just 6 people.

Central to all of these rooms is the elegant marble floored entrance hall complete with cream pillars and wrought iron balustrade staircase, great for some romantic wedding photographs of the newly-weds prior to them leaving the front door to be greeted by their guests waiting outside. For the group wedding photographs and confetti pictures there are various options and all with splendid backdrops.
For some further Bride and Groom wedding photographs away from all the guests we take our couples for short walks in Morden Park where we know some areas that are perfect for capturing those special romantic moments.
During summer the area around Modern Park House is always lively: the very large car park accommodates various wedding parties, families and children going to the swimming pool or to picnic or play golf in Morden Park which is also the site for the Park and Ride transport arrangements for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
All in all Merton Register Office is a fine Surrey wedding venue that we always enjoy working at, in particular for the facilities, ambiance and friendly and helpful staff.
Our 10 Top Tips for getting married at Merton Register Office
1. Morden Park House can be confused with Morden Hall Park, the latter of which is a National Trust property and situated 1¼ miles away, so make sure your guests have the right address
2. You have a choice of 4 rooms to choose from according to the number of wedding guests you have: The Georgian Room, which is the smallest room is cream in colour and located on the ground floor and is suited for up to just 6 wedding guests; The Sheridan Room is green in colour and on the ground floor (for up to 30 guests), The Lord Nelson is lemon and blue in colour and at the top of the first floor (for up to 40 guests) and The Ewart Room which is Terracotta in colour and on the second floor (for up to 100 guests)
3. Remember to tell family and guests that there is plenty of cheap parking space in the adjoining public car park
