The perfect venue, with so much space and multiple rooms and areas to seamlessly go from day to night

I couldn't recommend Marden Park Mansion enough. The team is so friendly and hands-on and went out of their way to make my day perfect. I planned my wedding from Asia and all communication was thorough, personal and fast, I had complete confidence in Faye and the team so when I arrived back for the wedding it was all very smooth and stress free. Marden Park Mansion's team was so personal, compared to other venues we had visited before I felt really taken care of. We were able to set up the day before and come over the next day to collect, there wasn't an immediate rush.

It was stress free having all the catering part of the venue, with a great range of options, delicious food and fantastic service. The biggest selling point for us was the space itself. Set inside a beautiful old manor house with lots of character with large gardens for beautiful photos. The venue is perfect for all weathers, despite getting married in July we did have rain, but with Marden Park Mansion, there are so many different areas from the drinks reception room, to the large wedding breakfast room and then a separate room for dancing and another room for the bar with sofas. There were no delays in needing to empty the room and have the musicians set up, waiting around outside, we could seamlessly move from the wedding breakfast straight onto the dancefloor, with the band ready to go! The whole evening ran perfectly and there was so much space for everyone to dance, eat, sit and talk without all being stuck in the same one room all day long. It was perfect! Thank you Marden Park Mansion!

Calling it beautiful doesn’t do it justice!

We had the most incredible wedding at the Marden Park Mansion. The staff, and in particular Faye, we’re incredible both in the lead up to the day and on the day itself! We wish we could replay the wedding 100x over because it was flawless thanks to the help of the catering, serving and planning staff! A special shout out to Faye who saw us through from start to finish, she really made the experience very easy and as stress free as possible! And our guests had an amazing time playing lawn games in the sun, dancing the night away and importantly drinking at the bar.

Can not recommend this venue highly enough!

Brilliant wedding venue!

The team at Woldingham were fantastic- Faye and Susan were brilliant and accomodating, letting us arrange visits to the venue ahead of the day to see how things would run, and offered flexibility when we wanted a larger top table than was readily available (Susan arranged for hire of a larger one). The food and drink was absolutely brilliant, beautifully presented and the catering staff were so polite and professional. Our guests loved the food, wine and the champagne! The venue is gorgeous both inside out and out (important when it comes to English weather!). Would absolutely recommend having a wedding at Woldingham!

Excellent venue

Faye and the team are excellent. From first viewing the venue, up until the wedding day - whatever queries I had, Faye would always respond quickly. Everything appeared to be very organised and it all ran so smoothly on the wedding day which really took the stress off of us.

All the wedding guests mentioned how incredible the staff were - from serving the plates and knowing exactly who was eating what, to making sure the water dispenser was always full. Thank you also for finding alternate dishes (which weren’t boring!) for people with allergies. All the staff I encountered were very pleasant, polite and helpful.

Thank you again, we really did have the best day at your beautiful venue.

Fantastic venue for a wedding!



We were extremely happy with our choice of Marden Park Mansion as our wedding venue! The gorgeous grounds and magnificent building awed all our guests (and us too) and the process of organising everything was very smooth from the first time we considered it as a venue, to all our enquiries and to the day itself. Faye and Susan were exceptionally helpful throughout the process, along with all the staff members on the day itself. The organisation with all our suppliers, eg. florist, band, was smoothly handled by the team. The food and drinks selection were also wonderful.

It was a lovely venue that felt much more personal and caring about your needs than other commercial venues. In all, we could not be any happier that we have chosen this as our wedding venue.

It really was the best day

Now the dust has settled we just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the Woldingham team- our wedding day was everything we wanted it to be. We've had so many kind words since the big day, our guests absolutely loved the venue, the food and the service. You were so supportive throughout the planning and did everything you could for us on the day. As cliché as it sounds it really was the best day of our lives and we've made some fantastic memories and we have you to thank.

Absolute stars

Just to thank you and Sandra for being absolute stars! Joe and I couldn’t have asked for two better people to organise our day for us. You both went above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough for making our day so special.

Spectacular

From the moment we looked round Woldingham School, we knew it was special and the ideal place in which to have our wedding reception. As practising Catholics, as are so many of our guests, we were blown away by the history and beautiful interior of the mansion. The staff couldn't do enough for us in the preparations leading up to the big day and it was always very easy to get in touch with Faye to make any tweaks to our plans and to ask the umpteen questions we had!

The location is spectacular and everyone commented on the beauty of the grounds and the time in which they had to explore them in between eating, drinking and dancing! Many of our guests have said how amazing the food was, especially the trio of lamb. Everyone was so at ease, which is what we wanted on our wedding day. Having the whole mansion, ensured people could move around freely and it was great for both the party animals as well as those who wanted some quiet time in the lounge/bar area.

We cannot speak more highly of Woldingham School and would highly recommend it to our friends as being a wonderful venue for a wedding.

Thank you to all who made our day complete.

Just perfect in every way

From the first contact with Clare (Director of Events), we knew that Woldingham School, Marden Park would be the most perfect wedding venue for us. Throughout the whole process Clare was excellent at answering any questions we had and we couldn’t have asked for better customer service. The mansion house and grounds are simply beautiful and the layout of rooms is perfect. Even though we had rain on our wedding day, it never felt cramped. The food was delicious and the staff so professional. We had some pregnant guests and the catering staff couldn’t do enough to accommodate any of their requests. It was the most perfect day. Our sincere thanks once again to Clare, Peter (Catering Manager) and all the wonderful staff at Woldingham.

A truly special venue

Both Clare (Director of Events) and Peter (Catering Manager) were extremely helpful, professional and flexible in accommodating our requests. They instilled confidence in us right from the beginning leaving us in no doubt that we had chosen the right venue for our wedding party. We weren’t let down. The function rooms and the building itself are stunning – a truly special venue. Being ‘foodies’ we wanted something special and that is exactly what we got. So many of our guests commented on how great the food was (and that included the fussy eaters!). All the staff were extremely polite and helpful – nothing was too much trouble. We felt we were in safe hands at all times. We really cannot fault the venue at all – highly recommended!

Thank you for the most special day

Clare (Director of Events) and the team were extremely helpful in helping organise the wedding, which was particularly important at stressful times of the process! She was extremely calm on the day which helped us considerably. Thank you to Clare and the team for the most special wedding day. It all ran perfectly on the day, the food was superb and we had an incredible time. All of our guests complimented us on how lovely the day was and how brilliant the atmosphere was. Thank you very much.

Thank you, we had our perfect day.

The venue is so well looked after, all the rooms, the chapel and gardens always looked immaculate on every visit. Clare (Director of Events) and Emily (Assistant Catering Manager) both went above and beyond. Emily was amazing at our tasting helping us to decide and gave us helpful tips and options – this was very welcomed by us. On the day everything ran so smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. The food, service, rooms and staff were all perfect. We couldn’t be happier that we chose Woldingham School as our wedding venue. Thank you, we had our perfect day.

The perfect mansion in the English countryside

You can have every confidence that your wedding will be fabulous and well run at Woldingham! The mansion house and gardens are exquisite, really, and only a visit shows them in their true glory, so do visit! The flow of the house works well throughout the day and the gardens offer stunning photo opportunities and a lovely patio for your guests. Our guests didn’t tire of telling us how good the food was. The roast potatoes were truly scrumptious! The staff on the day were friendly, helpful, warm and very professional and make your day run smoothly. Unfortunately for us, we had a hiccup with our DJ who arrived late, but not before Peter (Catering Manager) had leaped into action to find us a speaker and the fantastic lady at Reception took charge of the situation and went and found our lost DJ. Another example of how the staff really do go the extra mile for you. You could say the venue is a ‘hidden’ gem in the Surrey countryside, run by the best wedding team you could hope for. We only have praise and thanks to Clare (Director of Events), Peter and all the staff at Woldingham School, who ensured we had a marvellous day. Huge thanks to all of the team!
