Galleries with international exhibitions for your guests to view, excellent photo opportunities with surrounding seaside scenery; let alone the linear beauty of the building. Celebrate your perfect wedding day with us.

The events team will help you plan all the way to the big day and offer a modernist canvas for you to embellish with your own touches. We offer two packages – Gold and Silver – for your reception which can take over the Level 1 spaces after the building closes to the public. You are in no way obligated to hold both ceremony and reception, we happily facilitate either/or but would be delighted to hold all aspects of your day; set to be a very memorable one!


Civil Ceremonies

The Pavilion’s Auditorium is the licenced area for civil partnerships & can be transformed into a highly unique ‘set’ for your ceremony. This space can accommodate large numbers & can be as exuberant as you wish (within reason!) but can also be more intimately lit for a much smaller guest list. We take bookings every day of the week; depending on registrar availability – please note; the registrar is not included in the room hire and is to be booked by the couple.


Your drinks, canapés & next chapter of your photo album can take place on the Roof Top Foyer & cascades out onto the Roof Terrace (weather permitting) – you have full reign of the building for photographs which is open to the public daily; always from 10.00am with closing times subject to season (5.00pm, 6.00pm) & from the seasonal closing time – the Pavilion is your oyster exclusively  for your evening sit down dinner or buffet, access to our fully licensed bar and to let your band/DJ do their thing; making use of the restaurant area, Café Bar & Kitchen and Gallery 2 foyer spaces.

We can accommodate 110 seated – with the option to up-the-capacity for non-dining guests later on.  Gold or Silver reception packages include hire of our iconic venue – please note, ceremonies are at a separate cost – please request further information from our events team.



“We had the immense pleasure of getting married at DLWP on Saturday and we want to formally acknowledge the huge contribution to the success of our big day that was made by your events and catering teams.  All our guests were highly complementary about the organisation and execution of our celebrations, and of the patience and professionalism shown by all those people (seen and behind the scenes) who played a part.  All in all, our big day was unforgettable, and we have already had many messages from guests saying how much fun they had and about the venue itself.  You have a unique facility and a wonderful team – please accept our sincere thanks for giving us the best experience possible.”
Steve and Julia, June 2018

“The organising and scheduling was excellent.  The tech guys did such a fab job ensuring the lighting and music was spot on. The chef and catering staff did a wonderful job and really did the venue proud.  Our guests absolutely loved the food and wine.  The serving staff were very kind, helpful and polite. The bar staff were great too.  We saw some of our friends yesterday and they all said what a fantastic venue, meal.  I have also received text messages saying the same.  We loved every part of our day.”
Clint and Barbara, May 2018

“Thank you so, so very much for making our wedding an absolute success, what can we say other than it was the best day of our lives. So many people have told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to and even one friend said it was the best and happiest day of her life! You and the whole DLWP team have truly made it amazing and excuse the pun ‘we are over the moon’”.
Tom and Judi, April 2018

“I would like to thank all the staff at the De La Warr Pavilion. The day was very special and the iconic venue, helpful staff and delicious food played a large part in making it memorable. Thank you! We would highly recommend the De La Warr Pavilion to couples planning their wedding”.
