Reasons to get Married in Surrey

Your wedding venue should make a statement about you as a couple. It’s more than just opting for an outdoor wedding, a hotel wedding, a beachfront wedding (and so on). Choosing your wedding venue is also about the location you hold your wedding! If you aren’t planning on jetting off to a tropical country to tie the knot, you have to think carefully about where in the UK you want to get married. Why not consider Surrey?

Known for its rolling hills, quaint countryside towns, and areas of outstanding natural beauty, Surrey is the perfect place for a wedding. The picturesque greenery makes the ideal backdrop while you say your vows, and the large number of manor houses available mean you’ll definitely be stuck for choice. However, given that your venue is a statement about you as a couple, you can always opt for something that’s more unique, like a quaint country pub, or a gothic castle! Failing that, the fact that Surrey is generally an affluent area means there are a myriad of gorgeous, classy hotels that will welcome you and your guests with open arms. 

Aside from the gorgeous setting – who could say no to that?! – Surrey is also an excellent place to get married logistically, due to its excellent transport links. It borders 6 counties: Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire and of course, London. Anyone who lives in the ‘London-boroughs-with-a-Surrey-postcode’ area (think Croydon, Kingston, Twickenham, etc.) will have heard the “so, do you live in London or Surrey?” question a hundred times. For the purposes of your wedding though, it doesn’t matter. All that happens is that, by being located next to London, transporting everything to your wedding – from the guests to the bespoke champagne bottles that your other half insisted on – will be a doddle.

If you’re dreaming more about the honeymoon than you are the actual wedding day, you’ll be pleased to know that despite being named ‘London Gatwick’, Gatwick Airport is technically in Surrey as well, meaning you can be jetting off to your gorgeous honeymoon setting just hours after the wedding is finished. If the wedding is your main focus, having one of the UK’s busiest airports in the same county as your wedding is ideal for overseas guests, who can arrive stress-free to the wedding. 

 

Here are some interesting facts about Surrey to convince you that little bit more: 

1.  Surrey played a huge role in Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre, and at some point, was the home to literary legends such as Daniel Defoe, George Eliot, Alfred Tennyson, Charles Dickens, Lewis Carroll, H.G. Wells and E.M. Forster. If it’s good enough for them…

2.  Outwood Windmill is the oldest working windmill in England. Just imagine the gorgeous wedding snaps with that in the background…

3.  Every year, on the third week of July, the Thames witnesses the annual census of the population of the swans, for the Queen. This tradition has been going since the 15th century!

4.  Oatlands Palace was built in 1540, by the notorious Henry VIII, for his ex-wife Anne of Cleves. It barely stands today, but excavations began in 1964 to rediscover it.

In order to get married, you must both give your notices at least 28 days prior to your ceremony date and know where and when you are holding your ceremony. To find out more you can visit the Surrey County Council Website
