Julia & Lorraine, Thank you for helping to make the day of Guy & Jenny’s wedding so special. Thank you so much for being so friendly and helpful and working so hard from early until late, nothing was too much trouble. It was a magical day in a beautiful setting – memorable in every way.

The ideal setting

We were instantly blown away by the beautiful gardens and landscape surrounding the house. We viewed the outdoor marquee which can hold the larger number which we knew we would need for our wedding. This became a really important part for us as the marquee is nestled amongst the sloping lawns and next to the amazing Rose Garden. After viewing the venue, we met the wonderful Wedding Co-ordinators and between them, they could answer and solve every single question we had during our wedding journey. They both treated every detail with complete respect and never once made us feel like an inconvenience or that we were asking to many questions. On the day itself, I couldn't believe how much they did to give us and our guests the most amazing day. Most of this I have only heard of since the day, because everything they did was with complete discretion and professionalism.

Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedic

Julia & Lorraine, Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication that made such an outstanding contribution to Matthew and Cathry’s wedding day. Your professionalism was clear in every detail but combined with a very special quality to make their wedding a totally unique experience. Everyone we spoke to commented not only on the lovely atmosphere of Burrows Lea but the friendliness and helpfulness of the whole team. We have many happy memories of a wonderful day and we are loving recalling Cathryn and Matthew’s happiness throughout the whole day. They loved you all at Burrows Lea from their very first visit and their hopes and dreams for their wedding day were surpassed – thanks to you all.

Thank you so much

St Patricks Day Wedding - 17th March 2018
Venue Service

By Kate and Dave, on 28 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Mar 2018

We had a great wedding day due to our own organisation. The venue is fantastic (our own country house for the day) yet we found staff along the way very lacking (sporadic contact and having to continuously chase for responses to emails) and, after we had our wedding, having written a letter of dissatisfaction to the ‘new’ MD about several things we were informed that the staff are ‘general event organisers’ and not ‘wedding planners’! Note: There had been a change of staff in 2017. We only had a choice of 3 approved catering suppliers, unless we paid an additional £1200 plus VAT for our own suppliers to use the kitchen. We did use one of their caterers due to cost and on the day they truly came through for us! Surprisingly BL asked for an additional £50 plus VAT for a turn down service for the bride and guests staying Friday night which we (and our friends who work in hospitality) thought was ludicrous considering the hire costs! Be sure to check your contract for all the small additions! On a positive it is great to be able to get into the main breakfast room 2 days before to decorate it yet if you are having a winter Saturday wedding (like us) you cannot decorate the main rooms until all healing has finished on the Friday. Our volunteer celebrant Linda was amazing and really was 1000% awesome in her dedication to our service; a true gem. We had a great day due to our own organisation and would say, if you are good at organising, go ahead and book BL. If you need them to do it for you, maybe look somewhere else.

Will and Naomi's wedding Aug 27 , 2016
Venue Service

By Andrew Baker, on 31 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

I agree with all of the other glowing reviews of Burrows Lea as a venue. The staff were very attentive but unobtrusive and the facilities were excellent. It was a huge advantage being able to plug in our own suppliers rather than having to accept any "package" on offer. It is also very helpful being able to start the process of dressing the marquee two days in advance of the big day. I cannot commend the team at BLCH highly enough. We all thank them for helping to make our day so very special. If you are as lucky as we were with the weather, you will be able to enjoy the fabulous gardens and grounds to their utmost as well as being able to take in the lovely long view across fields to the south. A truly special oasis.

Excellent Service

The team at Burrows Lea were so accommodating to all our needs in the build up and were so useful helping offering suppliers and the caterer they suggested was of a very high standard. Will be recommending to any of our friends looking to get married.

Burrows Lea was special to us because it felt truly ours for the Special Day. We didn’t feel rushed, or a number in a long line of other couples. There weren’t any other people there only us, our friends and the staff, who went out of their way to help. It’s a unique place, which helps to calm and soothe those wedding nerves.

Our Wedding Reception at Burrows Lea was just perfect, we cannot praise the staff enough from viewing the venue to after our Wedding day the team at Burrows Lea were very attentive and helpful with nothing being too much trouble. With such beautiful gardens and surroundings there was no better place to have the reception, our guests were blown away with how beautiful the venue was, it truly is a hidden gem. Knowing exactly how we wanted our venue to look, it was fantastic being able to decorate the marquee how we wanted. We had an amazing day and would use Burrows Lea again for other big events we would like to celebrate. Thank you all once again.

Amazing Venue

By Gerry and Elizabeth Evanson, on 28 Nov 2014

We are writing to say how delighted we are with all the arrangements for Aidan and Verity's wedding. The Marquee and surrounding area were splendid and our guests were amazed by the wonderful views over the Surrey hills. Those lucky enough to be staying overnight in the BLCH bedrooms were delighted by the spacious accommodation and thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Such events do take a lot of planning and arranging and we are very grateful to the events team for your help and support over the last few weeks and months. You were always ready to listen and respond to our often trivial requests in a most helpful and friendly manner. Aidan and Verity 20.06.14
