thank you for making our wedding so effortless – Deborah & niall Attenborough, 13 april 2017

The staff were always professional , approachable, friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the day so much and were super relaxed knowing it was all in hand. The beautiful venue speaks for itself and looks wonderful anytime of the year. We saw it in the pouring rain in January and loved it. All our guests said it was a fantastic venue and amazing food. Some said it was one of the best meals they’d ever had, especially the vegetarians. The kids were so well catered for at the venue and the parents really had a chance to relax. We had a ball. It was everything we hoped for and more.

booking marden park really did make the whole process easier – jordan & matthew robinson, 17 february 2017

Although the prices are similar we found Woldingham School far more flexible and accommodating than other venues and far more willing to work with us as we went along. They made the whole process easier – no need to liaise with separate caterers and arrange a different venue for the reception. Having Clare (Events Manager), who knew what was going on and could make things happen really did make a difference. There were no emergencies but we were much more relaxed knowing that if there was one, Clare was on hand. We will make sure to recommend Marden Park to anyone who breathes the word ‘engagement’ to us for many years to come!


The venue is absolutely fantastic. Being able to have either a civil or religious ceremony on the same site makes it really easy. Having separate rooms for food, dancing and bar works really well. The gardens are extensive and beautiful – we got so many gorgeous photos including on our engagement shoot. The outdoor terrace is perfect for a summer evening, but it was reassuring to know we’d be fine staying inside if it did rain on the day. The food was exquisite. Everyone commented on how great the food was. The staff were all very professional and nothing was too much trouble. What you don’t see listed is the amazing level of service from when you book to the day and what the team do behind the scenes on the day. This all meant our families could enjoy the day rather than worrying about logistics. So overall it is very reasonable. We really hope we can have another event there it was so good!

we simply had the best day of our lives – sam & dave gajlewicz, 30 july 2016

As the old cliché goes, you had me at “hello”, Woldingham School had us as we drove down the drive the very first time and the school came into view. We just knew. By the time Clare (Events Manager) was two minutes into the tour we were ready to pay the deposit! Clare was extremely helpful and absolutely lovely from the first day we met her and throughout the wedding journey. Jane (Catering Manager) was very helpful in the lead up to our big day and all her staff were superb on the day. All our friends and family absolutely loved the venue. A magical place which has given us wonderful memories. Thank you!

thank you to everyone for making all of our dreams come true – chelsey & Robert street, 23 july 2016

The staff were absolutely phenomenal. If there was any question or query it was always answered extremely quickly. A lot of pressure planning the wedding was taken away as the staff were extremely helpful and attentive through the entire process. Jane (Catering Manager) was fantastic throughout the tasting and especially on the big day, and the catering staff were extremely professional. It was great to watch our guests enjoy the silver service experience. The entire venue was absolutely magnificent. During the wedding, guests only had praise and were blown away by the venue and grounds.

we had the most perfect wedding – nadia & howard Watson, 16 july 2016

Clare, Jane and the catering staff at the school couldn’t have done more during the lead up to the wedding, or on the day itself. Nothing was too much trouble, and the staff were so attentive on the day. The food was outstanding…many of our guests have since commented on the quality of the food. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the venue to others.

our wedding at woldingham school was nothing short of perfect – kellie & tim woodward, 15 july 2016

All of our guests commented on the beauty of the mansion and gardens and our photographer loved it all! We made use of the Chapel so our guests only had the very short walk to the Mansion for drinks and canapés, which were excellent. The wedding breakfast was complimented by a number of our guests. The serving was efficient and ran perfectly on schedule, which meant the cutting of the cake and first dance were spot on time. Woldingham staff were really helpful, patient and versatile. It took so much pressure off having staff who knew what they were doing and had so much experience in the wedding industry. We would both highly recommend the Mansion as a venue, and the best compliment is when the Bride wakes up the next morning and says she wouldn’t change a thing.


We couldn’t have asked for anything more in terms of organisation. As soon as we met Clare (Events Manager) and then Jane (Catering Manager), we knew we were in very safe hands. They both made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable. On the day everyone was so calm, friendly and professional which made for the perfect day! As soon as we arrived at Woldingham School to look around we knew it was the venue we were looking for. It’s a stunning mansion that has a lovely feel to it and is full of character with large, light rooms, high ceilings and wooden floors. The layout works brilliantly with all the different rooms available for each stage of the day. The grounds are beautiful too. Everyone complimented all the food, particularly the desserts! For the exclusive space, gorgeous setting, delicious food, brilliant service and all the support throughout, we felt it was great value for money.


The staff at Woldingham School were extremely helpful with the organisation of our wedding day, which made us feel at ease and helped us enjoy planning our wedding. The waiters and waitresses were very professional and several of our guests commented on the fabulous service received on the day. The venue is amazing, words cannot describe how excellent it is. The first time we visited we fell in love with it. We are so happy we chose Woldingham School as our wedding venue.

I would recommend this venue to everyone we know – Annie & Andy Paterson, 15 August 2015

What a beautiful venue to have our wedding. We were exceptionally happy with everything on the day. Clare (our organiser and registrar) answered all our questions even up to the last minute. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer or more helpful person for our special day. The food and catering staff were exceptional. They were helpful before the day and on our wedding day they couldn’t do enough for us and our guests. We didn’t want to leave and were looked after so well by all the staff both before and during our wedding day. A gorgeous location and grounds.

We were so delighted that we chose this venue – Dionne & Stephen Bold, 14 August 2015

From the moment I met Clare the venue co-ordinator I knew I would be in safe hands. A huge thank you to Clare, Jane and Sue for running our wedding day so professionally and smoothly. Clare with much ease relaxed and reassured us throughout the numerous visits, from the exchange of emails to the grand entrance as husband and wife. When meeting Jane the catering manager we were positively blown away by her over accommodating advice and reassurance. We are privileged to have met an extraordinary, elegant and sophisticated team whose organisation ensured all our requirements were met. The catering scale was unbelievable. Simply superb food with mouth-watering dishes. The banqueting style of the waiting staff gives real credit to the wedding industry with extremely high quality when they served our guests. They provided an outstanding diner experience. Again thank you team for making our Special Day remarkable!!! Definitely well worth visiting as a future wedding location!!!

We could not recommend Woldingham highly enough – Jessica & Christian Henk, 13 August 2015

Jane (Catering Manager) and her team were absolutely fantastic. They were so professional and extremely well organised.  The food was lovely – thank you Chef! We loved our tasting day and the food on the day was perfect. We had an amazing day. The venue and staff were brilliant. Clare (Events Manager) was fantastic – she was extremely kind, caring and efficient. She always kept us informed and was on the end of the phone if we needed help (which was really reassuring) – thank you so much. We couldn’t have wished for a better day.

We couldn’t have asked for a more helpful team of people working to make our special day perfect – Johanna & Paul Hayward, 18 July 2015

The layout of the venue is perfect. The reception room is beautiful, light and leaves a lasting first impression. The wedding breakfast room was beautifully spread so you can see everyone from the top table, while remaining spacious. The evening room has great acoustics and is a fantastic space for dancing. The gardens are stunning – perfect for photographs and for guests to spend time in away from the main house. Importantly, the space available is so great and of such quality that if the weather isn’t perfect on your special day, you and your guests will have plenty of space to enjoy each other’s company without being crammed in, as is so often the case with other venues. I can’t speak highly enough of the food. The meal and buffet were both absolutely amazing. The serving staff were fantastic and you got the impression that the people helping you organise couldn’t do enough to help you.

Thinking of booking the venue, go for it, you won’t regret it! – Cara & Oliver Tite, 17 July 2015

The venue itself is stunning and has an onsite chapel which was a massive positive for us. The Events Manager Clare was fantastic throughout and got back to us very quickly when we had queries, was always willing to help and have us visit when we needed to. Many comments on the quality of the food after our wedding, especially the delicious canapés, and we really enjoyed the tasting session before. Being able to bring our own wine was also a massive selling point. To anyone thinking of booking the venue, go for it, you won’t regret it!

Woldingham School really is the perfect wedding venue – Megan & Matthew Park, 11 July 2015

When we came to visit Woldingham School for the first time we were blown away. We couldn’t have pictured a more beautiful venue for our special day, from the wonderful details in each room to the huge expanse of gardens – it was absolutely breath-taking. The lay out of the venue makes it perfect for guests to mingle together and ensures the day flowed seamlessly. Of course this was also down to the excellent staff at Woldingham. We could not recommend Clare (Events Manager) highly enough, she walked us through each step of the planning process at the venue and took away any fears or worries we had about the day. Always being so flexible and catering for our needs. The catering staff (and Jane in particular) were wonderful and our guests raved about the food. Wish we could re-live the day over and over again. Woldingham School really is the perfect wedding venue. 10/10 from us!

The food was outstanding – Dawn & Chris Bateman, 2 April 2015

The food was fantastic, outstanding, as were the staff in helping to organise our special day. The function rooms and garden are stunning, prices are reasonable and we would rate Woldingham School as excellent. We have a friend who has already booked for this year!

I would recommend this venue to everyone – Becky & Alex Pengelly, 19 February 2015

Woldingham School was the first, and only, venue that we viewed and once we had the tour and met the Events Manager, Clare, there was no question we would be making the booking. The venue itself is in a stunning setting with rolling hills and fields on the drive up to it. The grounds are beautiful, but the interior is also gorgeous which was very important for us as we were having a February wedding, and couldn’t rely on the weather. It did rain all day, but there were plenty of locations for photographs to be taken of us, the wedding party and all the guests inside. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was, and all the catering staff headed by Jane and Keiran made everything run smoothly and professionally on the day and in advance. Clare was an angel in the background, resolving potential issues before they even occurred. She liaised with all the suppliers to ensure they arrived on time, and reassured me every step of the way. I would recommend this venue to everyone – the location and staff make you feel as special as you should on your wedding day. Thank you!

Woldingham sets the bar for wedding venues! – Carly & Alastair Dean, 23 October 2014

Woldingham sets the bar for wedding venues and planning! A very big and heartfelt thank you to Clare, Jane and their team at Woldingham for making our wedding day so special. From the day of viewing the venue to the actual wedding day we very much appreciated all the support that was given and for the day itself to have been run so smoothly. With all the queries we put to both Clare and Jane, nothing seemed to be too much hassle and this certainly contributed towards making the planning stages stress free. Woldingham staff, the food, venue and grounds certainly exceeded all expectations. All our guests were in awe of Woldingham and its grounds and they too have commented on what a perfect day it was. Indeed, our day was a very memorable and magical one! We would, without a second’s hesitation, recommend Woldingham and its dedicated team.
