Built in 1898, Frensham Hall is a historic wedding venue nestled in Surrey's serene countryside in Farnham, England. This proud and beautiful estate with an incredible heritage has hosted lavish soirees during the turn of the century and hosted wounded soldiers during the Great War, much like the fictional Downton Abbey. Couples from near and far travel there to celebrate their love in a timeless, grand setting.

Facilities and Capacity

Frensham Hall would be honoured to host each milestone of your big day and boasts indoor and outdoor event spaces. Within the main building, you will find an Edwardian ballroom complete with a Minstrels' Gallery, a gorgeous Louis XVI drawing room, and a Jacobean hall with a baronial fireplace. All three are licensed for civil ceremonies. The estate is also blessed with stunning grounds, including a beautiful terrace, an intimate walled garden and outstanding views. Their walled gardens are now fully licensed for ceremonies if you prefer to host a sunny afternoon event.

Services Offered

Upon booking, Frensham Hall provides a dedicated wedding coordinator to turn your vision for your big day into a reality. You will benefit from their expertise in planning every last detail, from design and layout to your wedding breakfast menu and securing nearby accommodations. This team has also carefully selected a range of local businesses able to provide some of the other essentials for the day. During peak season, there is a minimum capacity of 85 guests, and the remaining months are arranged on a more case-by-case basis. Their room capacities are as follows:

  • Licensed for up to 60 in the Drawing Room

A must have venue !!

After getting married here we were so happy that we didn’t go anywhere else. We could not fault them in any way. The venue has stunning views and the staff could not be faulted. They were very informative from our first enquiry through to our wedding day. All of the costs were easily broken down with no surprise expenses. They had all different wedding locations at the venue to accommodate different budgets and the staff ensured that the day went smoothly. We could not fault them at all and would highly recommend this venue to anyone. Their such high standard of weddings and the picturesque venue will be hard to beat.

Perfect day

Myself and my now husband got married at Frensham Hall on 3rd June. We were lucky enough to be able to have our ceremony outside in the walled garden which was beautiful - the alternative is the ballroom which would have been equally as beautiful.

There are separate rooms/spaces so there's plenty of room for groups to relax and have a chat or party the night away in the main ballroom as well as the use of the grounds outside, which for us worked perfectly.

Kerry and Andrew were both amazing both before and during the wedding day making everything seem relaxed and in control. They are very flexible in terms of what you can do with the space, which rooms you want to use, very detail really! The staff were really friendly on the day too at the bar and serving the food.

Thank you to all involved - no complaints from us! xx

Perfect for any size wedding!

After spending a lot of time searching for the perfect venue for our 30 guest wedding we are so glad we came across Frensham Hall. We had our ceremony in the treehouse followed by a drinks reception and afternoon tea in main house.

From our initial email conversations to on the day Kerry and Andrew couldn't have been more helpful and passionate about creating the wedding we wanted. There were no requirements to follow the typical wedding format and everything was done with us in mind.

We would 100% recommend Frensham Hall for any size wedding, the space is so flexible that anything can be accommodated. Not to mention how beautiful it is too!

A Venue that puts the couple first

Where to start… our wedding was originally booked for April 18 2020 and we ended up re-arranging 4 times. Frensham were so amazingly flexible with us, their goal was to ensure that we had the wedding we had always envisioned. It was so refreshing to work with a venue that really put us as a couple first. When you visit Frensham Hall it sells itself as the venue is just stunning, but on top of that, the food, the service and our wedding managers Kerry / Andrew were absolutely brilliant. This venue has so many positives, to name a few: exclusive use for the weekend; beautiful grounds and house; insane flexibility; the most delicious menu; extremely reasonable pricing; fantastic bar and service; excellent wedding managers. We honestly can’t thank Frensham enough for allowing us to have the most incredible day. I would thoroughly recommend Frensham to anyone!!

Wedding 14 August 2021

We had such a great experience getting married at Frensham Hall. The wedding coordinator, Kerry made everything so easy and calmed all of our nerves. It was stressful planning a wedding in the midst of Covid and Frensham was so kind in allowing us to postpone and helping to make everything come together smoothly. Nothing ever seems like too much trouble. We are so grateful that we picked Frensham.

Andrew was wonderful at coordinating everything on the day and everything ran like clockwork. It was such a professional and friendly team and many of our guests commented on how attentive and friendly all the staff were. The food was also excellent – we can’t praise everything enough!

We have recommended Frensham to our friends and can’t speak highly enough about our experience. It was such a joyful day and we have such happy memories.

Beautiful venue, amazing staff

Wow! What can I say? Two postponements later and finally Frensham Heights gave us the wedding day of our dreams. I cannot find a single thing to fault Frensham Heights (soon to be Frensham Hall!) for. Everything was excellent from the communication, to the food to the professionalism of the staff. The venue is utterly stunning with views to die for and the price of every aspect is so reasonable. Our guests only had lovely things to say about the staff, venue and food who all went above an beyond to ensure that our dream wedding came true after all that waiting and worry. You'll have the most perfect day if you are lucky enough to have FH as your venue!

Would recommend 1000000%

Could not recommend Frensham Hall more after our beautiful wedding in August 2023!!!

From the moment we first looked round the venue, we knew it was the one and we loved that there were several rooms that you could get married in (as well as an outside ceremony space). There was also a room to get ready in on the morning of. We also loved that you got the venue for the whole weekend which was a massive bonus from us as we had a lot of setting up to do the day before.

Throughout the whole wedding planning time, Kerry and the team were amazing at answering all my questions and were so flexible and accommodating with our requests. We especially enjoyed the food tasting event where we also got to meet all the other couples getting married that summer. We were also able to customise the menu to serve what we liked and the food was outstanding.

On the day, everything went super smoothly and again, Kerry and the team were amazing at keeping everything on schedule. The day felt so relaxed as we had also gotten to know the team beforehand and all the staff were lovely. All our guests said that the food was spectacular and the day couldn't have gone better. Wish I could do it again!

Finally, it was great to have all the costs itemised along the way so that we could keep track of budgets, and we thought that the costs were very reasonable as well! Would recommend Frensham Hall for any future Bride or Groom!

Lovely place, felt very welcoming and flexible

We were due to have our wedding in May 2020, which unfortunately was changed heavily due to Covid. Kerry and the team at Frensham did everything they could and were even ready to put the finance staff to work helping with the day if it came to it! During the prep and planning stages we felt all of our requests were listened to and the staff were supportive in putting everything in place. They even allowed us to design our own starters, canapés and evening menu giving some lovely personal touches. The venue offered a level of flexibility that many we looked at didn't, and we were confident that it would have been a stunning day if our plans didn't have to change!

We would highly recommend Frensham Heights and would like to thank Kerry and the team.

Perfect Summer Wedding

We got married in August 2018 at this beautiful venue and had the most perfect day. Our guests were amazed by the building and the spectacular view. All the food was delicious and plentiful. Kerry was a pleasure to converse with, replying to emails quickly and reassuring us in the months leading up to the wedding. We were able to get in to the venue to set up days before the wedding which helped take the pressure off. Chloe made sure everything ran smoothly on the day, so we didn’t need to stress over anything and could just enjoy ourselves. All the staff were very professional and accommodating. Nothing we requested was ever an issue. It is a fantastic venue!

Beautiful Frensham Heights

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day the most special and memorable day of our lives. We cannot thank you enough for all the effort you made for us from seeing us several times to agree the food menu plus being so thoughtful with all the planning. We loved our day and we know that without your hard work it wouldn't have been nearly as great as it was.
