Above and Beyond
Venue Service

By Aymeric and Natasha, on 27 May 2019Date of Wedding - 25 May 2019

My wife and I held our recent wedding at Surrey County Hall and really could not have been happier with our experience. Although everything at the venue really was perfect, there were a few areas that were particularly outstanding: 1. Bernice and her team were absolutely amazing! Without going into too much detail, we had some last minute drama 36 hours before the wedding was due to take place, and the team at County Hall were so incredibly supportive and really went above and beyond to make sure our day would be just as we wanted it to be. 2. The running of the event was absolutely seamless, and that is, again, due to Bernice and her team. There wasn’t a single time during the day that we had to think about what was happening, and whether everything we needed had been organised. 3. The actual venue itself is stunning. We got married in the council chambers, a really beautiful room full of gravitas and a unique character. The main hall and its stained glass windows are amazing, and the room looked beautiful, both during the day and also when transformed ready for the evening reception. If you want to get married in a place that is simultaneously unique but also full of history, then this is the venue for you! We’d like to say another huge thank you to Bernice, who really made planning this wedding a lot less stressful than it could have been. She was always on hand to answer every one of our questions, both the big and the small. She does such an amazing job, which deserves to be recognised. We 100% recommend choosing Bernice and Surrey County Hall as a wedding venue!

Excellent Venue
Venue Service

By Emmet & Carly, on 16 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2018

We booked County Hall well over 12 months before our wedding because we were impressed with the quality of the venue itself, as well as how well connected it was to local transport. We were also really impressed with the level of support and care that we received from Bernice and Sam who look after the weddings that take place at County Hall. The day itself went exceptionally well. The venue looked amazing and there were no issues at all. We would very strongly recommend County Hall as a venue for your Ceremony and / or Reception

Great value for money and excellent service
Venue Service

By Neela Debnath, on 01 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We were extremely happy with our wedding at County Hall. Not only did we have a civil ceremony but we also had a traditional Hindu ceremony with a small fire and an evening reception all of which the venue was able to accommodate in various different rooms. The staff at the venue were great and happy to be hands-on and helping throughout the entire day, especially on the day when we had to make a last-minute change due to unforeseen circumstances. The hire price was excellent value for money and not having to pay for corkage was a massive bonus. The venue is stunning and there are some great locations to take photos. Location-wise, it's very accessible by public transport and there's also plenty of parking nearby.

Great venue!
Venue Service

By Hannah Dick, on 07 May 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2018

This was a fantastic venue for us. We originally chose it (among other reasons) as it was good value, and enabled us to choose a caterer (from an approved list) and didn’t charge corkage! All this helped us keep overall costs down, but in no means does this feel like a ‘budget’ venue. The team are excellent and provide a fantastic service leading up to the day, as well as setting up and the day itself. It all ran so smoothly and they work well with the chosen caters. The venue itself has some great spaces for the ceremony, reception and photos.

Venue Service

By Heather, on 26 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

Surrey County Hall is a beautiful venue for a wedding.. from the main entrance, to the inner courtyard and great hall. All of our guests commented on how great the building was. Bernice and her team were so helpful in the lead up to the big day, on the day itself and afterwards. Bernice went through the plans for the day and everything was taken care of on the day. She worked well with our ushers to organise the little details and movement of guests during the transitions. I would highly recommend this venue to other couples looking for a historic venue with excellent service from an experienced wedding team.

Heather, thank you so much for your kind words. It was such a wonderful day, we were privileged to share in it with you. Bernice

Great value for money
Venue Service

By Lucy A Terry, on 09 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017

This is a newish wedding venue and represents excellent value for money. It is gorgeous and has a team which really cares. They handled everything on the day with ease. A big bonus for the day itself and your guests is the space the venue offers- you won't feel claustrophobic at all. A big bonus for your budget is you can supply your own booze up until the evening with no extra charges. They have 2 nominated caterers who you must use. We used VIP Lounge who provided really tasty food. However the venue did also agree to a separate food van for our evening guests.

Bernice , Operations & Events Coordinator at Surrey County Hall responded to this review on 31/08/2017 13:54:58

Lucy, Thanks so much for your kind words. The van in the evening in our Inner Court Yard was a brilliant idea. We wish you both all the very best for the future.

Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Tyne and Ben Rapley, on 27 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017

We had our wedding ceremony at Surrey County Hall on Saturday 22nd April 2017. The Grand Hall and staircase leading up to it are absolutely beautiful and was the perfect location for our ceremony as it can hold so many people. The room itself is very regal and there is a lovely long aisle so you can make a grand entrance. The courtyard outside is a great place to hosts drinks afterwards and made such a good setting for a large majority of our photographs. It's really pretty outside when the sun is shining and was a good place to gather all the guests so we could greet them and have a drink together. The staff are absolutely fantastic and the service we received was brilliant. They are really helpful and thought of all the things that I forget, and they are willing to help in any way they can. They all made the day so much smoother for us as they get stuck in and help you and take on any responsibilities they can. The staff also recommended the catering company we used who also provided really good service. I would recommend this venue to anyone who was getting married, it was a perfect start to an unbelievably happy and magical day for us.

Our wedding
Venue Service

By David Curtis, on 25 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Mar 2017

The venue and wedding team were fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend! We had our ceremony in the council chamber which is a really unique environment. We were very lucky with the weather and had our drinks reception in the courtyard. This was large, ornate space was amazing for photos and our guests loved it.

Fantastic building and service!

By Sam and Heather Crowe, on 19 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016

We want to say a massive thank to Bernjce, Vicky and team who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The ceremony was just great and they took care of so many details for us. Felt like they were very accommodating and helpful from start to finish. A very professional team! Thank you! Sam and Heather

A huge thank you!
Venue Service

By Kim and Ralph, on 17 Aug 2015

We just wanted to again say a huge thank you. From our first contact with you, through the weeks of planning that followed and of course the big day itself, you were an absolute star. You were so helpful and professional throughout and we want you to know how much we appreciate it and you really did go above and beyond. We are so pleased we chose County Hall for our ceremony and the fact that ours was the first ever service makes it even more special. We have every confidence that you will help many other couples tie the knot and they are in excellent hands! Thank you again.
