Emma & Dom Juner

"It was the perfect balance of beautiful outdoor space but pretty enough inside that you aren't reliant on the gardens if the weather isn't as planned! We had our ceremony at the venue too and the amount of space on offer was great. The catering service was excellent. It sounds cliched but we couldn't have asked for a better day. "

Emma & Dom Juner , Married in August 2014

"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.

Our guests raved about the food. It really is the perfect venue."

For the exclusive space, gorgeous setting, delicious food, brilliant service & all the support throughout, we felt it was great value for money."

Gemma & Greg Baylis-Hall, Married in May 2016

Kellie and Tim Woodward

"All of our guests commented on the beauty of the mansion & gardens & our photographer loved it! We made use of the Chapel so our guests only had the very short walk to the Mansion for drinks & canapés, which were excellent. The staff were really helpful, patient & versatile. It took so much pressure off having staff who knew what they were doing & had so much experience. We both highly recommend."

Kellie and Tim Woodward, Married in July 2016

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the venue to others."

Chelsey and Robert Street, Married in July 2016

Sam and Dave Gajlewicz

"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! All our friends and family absolutely loved the venue. A magical place which has given us wonderful memories. Thank you!"

Sam and Dave Gajlewicz, Married in July 2016

Jordan and Matthew Robinson

"We found Woldingham far more flexible and accommodating than other venues & far more willing to work with us as we went along. They made the whole process easier. Having Clare (Events Manager), who knew what was going on & could make things happen really did make a difference. We were much more relaxed knowing she was on hand. We will make sure to recommend Marden Park to anyone for years to come!"
