Stunning wedding venue and great staff
Venue Service

By Anna and Ben, on 04 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2019

We had the most amazing wedding at RHS Wisley and were so well looked after by Sophie, Sue and the team. The glasshouse is stunning, so many of our guests commented that it was the most amazing wedding venue they have been to it and the gardens and glasshouse were a beautiful backdrop in all of the photos. Throughout the planning to the day itself the team were so warm, thoughtful and helpful. We couldn't recommend it enough and wish we could do it all again!

September wedding in the Glasshouse
Venue Service

By Alexandra & Aled Jones, on 11 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

What can I really say about our wedding at Wisley, such a gorgeous place was bound to provide the perfect day, and it certainly did! All the staff were excellent, from first enquiries up to & throughout the day, liaising with all the suppliers to ensure everything went to plan. Our guests were bowled over by the beauty of the gardens, many will be returning. I can't wait to go back and reminisce about our perfect wedding!

Fantastic venue and team
Venue Service

By Rachel and Matt, on 06 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2016

We had a humanist ceremony and reception at RHS Wisley in a marquee, followed by dinner and party at the beautiful Glasshouse. Despite some super dodgy weather on previous days, we had an amazing (and dry!) day, and all our guests commented on the beauty of the venue - which also lent itself to some fantastic wedding photos. Throughout the whole planning process, Chrissie was very helpful and accommodating, helping us get a late licence for the party and quickly re-plan aspects on the wedding when our plans for the day changed. And, importantly, Chrissie's team alongside our caterer made sure that the day ran like clockwork. All in all, a fantastic venue and team!

Venue Service

By Helen Mason, on 17 Jun 2016

We had our wedding reception at RHS wisley gardens last Saturday. The whole day was absolutely perfect. We had drinks opposite the Loggia and our wedding breakfast in a marquee in wilsons wood. Chrissie the events manager is such a pleasure to work with - extremely professional. We had so many lovely comments from guests about the wonderful venue. Everything went like clockwork. You couldn't ask for a better location for your wedding photos! Highly recommend

Thank you and all your staff for making our wedding day perfect. Everything ran like 'clockwork' and nothing was too much trouble for your staff. The food was out of this world...we only wish we would do it all again!

Enchanting wedding in the Glasshouse
Venue Service

By Meherzad Bilimoria, on 07 Aug 2015

We are writing to express our appreciation of all the staff at RHS Wisley who helped to make our event a great success. In particular, we wanted to highlight the central role played by RHS Wisley’s Events Manager, Chrissie Milton, both on the night and in the run-up to it. We all drew immediate comfort from Chrissie’s unruffled approach, clear grasp of our wedding concept and “can-do” attitude – qualities which were essential in helping to plan an Indian wedding for 250 guests! Her engagement helped to alleviate quite a bit of the pressure we were under as organisers. Our guests were clearly enchanted by the appearance of the Glasshouse, particularly in the evening light and we received a lot of positive feedback in relation to the venue.

Exquisite setting for a wedding
Venue Service

By Arielle Barratt, on 07 Aug 2015

Wisley made the most exquisite setting for our relaxed and beautiful wedding. The chef provided amazing food of the highest quality - our guests commented what a relief it was not to eat the usual boring chicken! The whole experience, being surrounded by nature and gorgeous plants, made the day elegant and perfect.

Unique wedding in the Glasshouse
Venue Service

By Sandra Rowles, on 07 Aug 2015

The RHS gardens at Wisley provided the most wonderful setting for our daughter's wedding reception in the Glasshouse. Surrounded by beautiful flowers on a summer's afternoon must be the very definition of romantic and the gardens did not disappoint. The Event Management team headed up by the wonderful Chrissie swung into action an hour before the gardens closed to the public and worked with our caterers to transform the exotic Glasshouse into a breathtaking space for entertaining our guests. Everything went like clockwork, not least due to the efficient organisation effected beforehand by Chrissie with both us and our caterer and we are all very grateful for her enthusiasm and drive to make the day as special as possible. All our guests enjoyed this unique experience - our overseas guests especially - and we all felt it had been a most special and memorable day for our family surpassing all expectations.
