Best wedding venue!

We would highly recommend Horsley Towers as a wedding venue. The venue itself is absolutely stunning; we got married there in November and luckily had good weather, but the cloisters, chapel and other rooms provide the perfect photo opportunities regardless of the weather. The team were fantastic; always very flexible, accommodating, friendly and have great expertise about how best to run a wedding day! The food served by the chefs was delicious and we had lots of compliments about the food on the day. On the day the wedding team were so organised and helpful; everything ran smoothly and Horsley Towers really do know how to run a fantastic wedding day! The whole process was stress free. We would highly recommend the team there and the venue.

Stunning wedding venue & stellar staff

Having lived in Guildford for over 35 years, what a stunningly beautiful and fairytale location for a wedding. From the first moment of online research, Horsley Towers hit all the buttons for us. We first visited in the summer and fell in love with the location. That led to several visits in Autumn, Xmas and Spring. From the impressive Italian Tower; cool lakeside walk; landscaped grounds; cosy bedrooms and imposing Grand Hall, this was the venue for us.
Having signed on the dotted line we had frequent contact with our wedding co-ordinators right up to our fairytale day. We had guests arriving from all over the world and although there were some online booking glitches we did manage to resolve them.
There were some stand out staff who made our day extra special. Thank you so much Olly and waiter friends for making our food tasting a special experience and Andreas for sticking with us to find the right wine! It was wonderful to enjoy room 103 the night before and then the bridal suite. How decadent but memorable. The stellar star of our day was Ginta who made our wedding day truly special. Your eye for detail is spot on and you noticed things even I missed! Nothing was too much trouble even when there was a wardrobe malfunction. You very quickly became a friend and I truly felt I could pad around downstairs and drink in the quiet atmosphere before all our guests arrived. A special moment. And of course Steve our toastmaster who so many of our guests still talk about when he conducted a tour and kept everything running so smoothly and on time. Olly your food on the day was fabulous and so many people mentioned they loved the generous portions.
All in all a fabulous venue that anyone wanting a special wedding memory should include on their list. Thank you so much Horsley Towers.

Good venue service could be better

Great venue and location. Food was good but the communication was poor between the planning team and the service team on the day. To start with we were told we will have 1 wedding planner through thw whole process. This was not the case. I understand that most often venues have 1 person to make the deal and another to manage the event, but had our expectations been set right , we wouldnt have been disappointed. There was no coordination from the planner with any of our suppliers. I believer they should have proactively asked us for their contact and contacted them to co-ordinate the day. But other than the suppliers that they gave us they didn't even want to know who/what we were going with. On the day, our Bridal party was delayed as were most of the guests and some of them missed all the canapes and welcome drinks. When asked, I was told, the rounds were over, and we needed to proceed for wedding breakfast. I think this could have been better managed. I know for sure the canapes were not over. We had paid extra for the canapes and drinks but my bridal party were left without it. We were told, any unused proccesso and drinks will be moved to the tab on the Bar that didn't happen. To top it all, my decorations from the day went missing after the wedding. I had to return these to the hire company but ending up paying Overall, the venue was amazing but we could have done with better service.

Incredible venue for our wedding

Could not wish for a more perfect venue and Horsley' employees were so supportive. We has to move our wedding 4 times due to the pandemic and Horsley were so understanding and incredible throughout which I know was not the case with many other wedding venues. This goes to show they care about their clients and were so flexible to make sure we had the perfcet day. Everyone went above and beyond and it worked like a dream. I could not recommend it more.

We are serious foodies and their chefs are outstanding. Everyone commented on the quality.

The staff are shining stars!!

We had a pretty devastating cancellation of our original wedding venue six months before our wedding date due to the venue deciding to close for refurbishment! My partner and I were scrambling around to find a venue with availability on the same day for the same number of people - and then we found the De Vere Horsley Estate…

From the first meeting right up until the post-wedding communication the staff have been absolutely incredible, nothing I asked for was too much trouble (including deciding to rearrange the entire ceremony room only hours before the ceremony was due to start and my request to pause a song at precisely 48 seconds in for my entrance!). The day went so smoothly without any hiccups and the staff were all to thank for that. We stayed from the Friday evening until the Sunday morning and from the moment we stepped into the venue we (myself, my husband and all of our guests) were made to feel so incredibly special. Throughout the time we were there we had access to an events manager, wedding coordinator, hotel manager and toastmaster who will forever be my four heros!

The food for the canapés and wedding breakfast was absolutely delicious as were the cocktails and the venue is STUNNING! And best of all, you get it all to yourself!

I could go on all day about the venue, but all I will say is if you’re considering Horsley BOOK IT! You won’t be disappointed!

Impeccable service despite cancellation

Despite the fact we sadly had to cancel our wedding due to the pandemic, we wanted to state just how impressed we've been with the team at Horsley Towers.

There are many reviews here which will tell you about how stunning the property and setting is. Instead we want to praise the outstanding level of service we received throughout our journey.

We were made to feel very special when first exploring Horsley Towers as a potential wedding venue, and this level of care and attention didn't drop after we'd booked, when the pandemic hit. Throughout this time, the team were responsive, flexible, empathetic and helpful - when originally rescheduling our wedding from Aug 2020 to May 2020, and then later trying to find a solution when those plans were scuppered by government regulation. We'd had the foresight to buy wedding insurance - which ultimately proved absolutely useless - so we were very grateful for Horsley Towers' honest and sensible approach that we received a full refund within a matter of weeks - all the more impressive when you consider how damaging the pandemic will have been on their business.

A lot can be learned of how a company treats its customers when times are at their worst. Based on our experiences, any couple would be lucky to have Horsley Towers as their venue.

Best Day of Our Lives

We would both like to take this opportunity to thank your entire staff for the amazing job they did to make our Wedding Day the best day of our lives.

@Kate from day one when we first visited Horsley Towers looking for a venue, you made us feel like our wedding was the most important thing in the world. Of course the venue speaks for itself, but the first impressions you gave us was a major reason for us choosing yourselves above other venues.

Your whole team have been an absolute pleasure to work with and have made us feel like nothing was too small to make our day everything we wanted. Lucie's coordinating was extremely helpful and the support provided was greatly appreciated.

We would also like to mention Sheldon who on the day was absolutely fantastic. He did not stop the entire day, helping us with every possible detail and making sure we were at ease the entire time when nerves were at a premium! His expertise and calmness throughout were a huge asset and he made us feel very important on the day too, which was so nice to experience.

Rafa, Jose and the bar staff who kept the night going too...and who could forget the efforts of Steve as our toastmaster, and the associate he had shadowing him on the day. Literally everyone made it all come together and so, so special.

As you can tell we are positively beaming about it all and we have had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they had been to and how beautiful the venue was. So once again, thank you so much for everything.

The kindest of regards and the sincerest of gratitude.

thoroughly enjoyable occasion and ran smoothly thr

Amy and I would like to thank you and your team for making our wedding day such a success. It was a thoroughly enjoyable occasion and ran smoothly throughout.

The team were professional and courteous with their service and we have received many compliments about the food. The venue looked great. We both thought the way it has been redecorated is very fitting, both in the bedrooms and the common areas. We look forward to seeing the photographs from the day.

All round it was a pleasure having our wedding at Horsley Towers, it holds some great memories for us and you seem to have really progressed the whole venue in recent years.

the best day of our lives

Now that the madness has subsided and James and I are finally somewhere quiet, I wanted to sit down and write a note to you all.

The 7th September was, without a doubt, the best day of our lives. From start to finish your attention to detail was incredible. Isabel was amazing for answering all of my questions all the time, to Gaby and Luke for their day organisation, to Enrico helping me fill the Towers rooms. The Horsley Towers team, were and are phenomenal.

I cannot tell you how lucky we both feel to have chosen you are a venue and to have been looked after so well.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!

All our love,
Lucy and James Castle xx

The Amazing Weekend and Wedding

Had an amazing wedding day at Selsdon Estate on 1 September. The venue is beautiful and we truly could not have asked for more from the wonderful staff and wedding coordinator (Hollie).
The ceremony was held out in the secret garden. It was a perfect day and the setting was idiilic. We followed this up with the most amazing scenery for photographs. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Megan oversaw all the setting up and it was done to perfection. The room was beautifully laid out with all our favours and seating arrangements exactly as we wanted. The waiting team were brilliant led by Darris. Food was brought out quickly and it was piping hot and delicious. The evening turn around was quick and we had a great party. The barman (Daan) was really efficient and kept the drinks flowing all night and we danced the evening away with our friends and family and the most beautiful bride and groom.
We would highly recommend De Vere Selsdon Estate as a wedding venue. The most amazing weekend and wedding.

Cant thank you enough!

We honestly can’t thank any of you enough for your all your help and support before and during the wedding. Isabel, thank you for your professionalism when answering my numerous call and emails and for putting my mind at rest when planning the wedding.

Gabby and Beth were amazingly the day before the wedding and on the day. Thank you to Gabby for going over and above by threading all of the wooden hearts with ribbon, she honestly was such a saviour. You really did make us feel ‘at home’ and allowed us to get on with what we needed to do with no hitches. Beth, thank you everything you did in the evening and for the smooth running of the final events. The food was also amazing and everyone really enjoyed it throughout the day. The toast master, Steve, was truly marvellous. Everyone loved the tour and he did a great job at making us all feel at ease.

In all, everyone at Horsley Estate made us, our families and friends extremely welcome and for going over an above. It made our day so special. I really can’t rate any of you highly enough and while the beautiful surroundings obviously helped, it was the care you all took to make sure everything ran smoothly that made the day just out of this world.

As an additional point, we used your recommended suppliers for the DJ, Mirror, flowers and fireworks and they all did an exceptional job.

We honestly can’t thank any of you enough and our friends and family have all said how amazing the venue and the day was. We couldn’t recommend you highly enough.

We look forward to returning next year on our anniversary!
