Findingthe right venue is always one of the hardest bits of planning
Well, new to the list of venues in Surrey is the impressive 18th century property, Botleys Mansion, set in rolling parkland near Chertsey.
Extensive investment by Bijou Weddings has seen lavish refurbishment in the property, including the construction of a new atrium, which provides a spectacular setting for banqueting or evening entertainment.
With space for 40 to 400 guests and accommodation in 12 bedroom suites, Botleys Mansion is available to hire exclusively for 24 hours, so a wedding can be celebrated in complete privacy.
This means that friends and family can prepare in total comfort from 11am on the day of the wedding and retire to their suites when the festivities have finished before waking to breakfast.
Sounds good to us!

A modern alternative to the traditional guest book, Reigate-based signatureplatters.co.uk offer bake yourself souvenir plates that wedding guests can sign on the day with a special ceramic pen.
A side project by Dish, a create-your-own studio on Reigates Church Street, these special platters are the unique keepsake that many look for from their special day.
