Just perfect in every way
By Kylie & Paul Patterson, on 11 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Mar 2018
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
By Jo & Paul Smith, on 11 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2018
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!

The Director of Events (Clare) was incredible in helping us to get everything sorted, answering all of our many questions with a wonderfully cheery attitude.
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
By Sarah & Stephen Liddle, on 05 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017
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!
What a spectacular venue
By Elisha and Jonus Figueira, on 28 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2017
The two of us loved the venue from the moment we saw it and decided almost instantly to book, the experience we have had was amazing. Our guests did mention multiple times over the course of the evening and following days what a spectacular venue we have selected and how great the wedding was! The rooms were superb, and provided our guests with ample space between all the different events at the wedding. The guests also loved the space and commented on how great the scenery was at the venue. The catering staff were very well organised, well trained and spot on with the service. They even looked after both the bride and groom waiting for the right movements to serve canapés and drinks on a very busy afternoon for us! Clare (Director of Events) was exceptional and with us every step of the way as we planned our wedding. She was always an email or phone call away to answer the many questions which cropped up and we really were very grateful for all her support throughout our wedding planning. It made the whole process so much more stress free!
We felt so lucky to host our wedding at Woldingham
By Harriet & Sean Doherty, on 28 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017
The experience we had before, during and after the event was absolutely superb and the wonderful Director of Events (Clare) brought a welcome dose of calm, professionalism and care throughout all proceedings. The Woldingham team were very flexible on visits both before and after the Big Day and this made life considerably easier on the organisational front. The venue itself, from the drive in from the front gate to the variety of wonderful rooms and outdoor space, is breath-taking and the main house felt so spacious throughout the day despite us having a large wedding party. The catering side must also be highly commended as the food and service was magnificent and so many of our guests commented on this. We also appreciated the fact that the venue had an on-site chapel and the minimal transfer time from the church to the canapé/champagne reception was a real plus for all. The whole experience significantly exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful to Clare and the Woldingham team for taking good care of us on our special day.
Marden Park is a top class wedding venue
By Leanne & Ian Chescoe, on 28 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2017
The venue is really beautiful, everything is very well maintained and has that real wow factor. As we live locally we’ve been fortunate to see the gardens throughout the year and they look lovely in every season. Unfortunately for us we had rain on our wedding day, but the rooms were big enough to hold all of our guests comfortably. Once we’d met Clare (Director of Events) we knew we wanted her in control of our day. Peter (Catering Manager), Scott and Emily were extremely helpful. We made some adjustments to our menu and nothing was too much trouble. The food on the day was absolutely delicious and all of our guests commented on the quality and taste of the food. One of the major factors for us choosing the venue was the fact we were able to provide our own wine and prosecco. A lot of other venues only gave you drinks package options, which were more expensive and the quality was not as good as what we provided ourselves.
It was special having exclusive use of the venue
By Jen & Ovuefe Efeotor, on 07 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017
The venue has both beautiful buildings and beautiful gardens which made for a really special occasion and wonderful photos. Having an attractive building both inside and out enabled options for all weather conditions (required in our case!). Delicious food and very professional catering staff. It was an excellent venue and exceeded all of your expectations. For exclusive use the price was better than many competitors. Beautiful venue with organised, friendly and attentive staff.
By Claudia & Sam Chadwick, on 28 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2017
The mansion rooms are lovely with loads of options for decoration. The food was served perfectly by the catering team. Scott attended to the top table and was brilliant and Peter (Catering Manager) assisted with everything that we needed. Clare (Director of Events) is brilliant, helped throughout and answered all the questions we had regarding the venue, set up and running order of the day. Brilliant venue, food was fantastic and they couldn’t have done more for our special day.
We had a fantastic day from start to finish
By Sophie and Paul Sweeney, on 27 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017
Clare's help, support and guidance from day one was nothing but amazing. Clare (Director of Events) helped our day run so smoothly and we can't thank her enough! We have had so many great comments from family and friends about all the staff and the venue! Thank you again for everything.
