Botleys Mansion is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, with several different rooms and spaces being available for you to use for your civil wedding. The local wedding registry office is in Weybridge, Surrey. There are also several churches nearby.
The Green Room, on the Piano Nobile (raised ground floor) is a soft, light and airy space with capacity for up to 131 guests (including the couple and registrar(s)) for civil ceremonies. Its warm oak floors and soft (white, blues and pinks) pastel décor create a calm, soothing space in which to affirm your love. As throughout Botleys Mansion, the Green Room boasts an impressive centrepiece chandelier and the intricately carved ceilings are a sight to behold. The acoustics in the Green Room are excellent, which make it perfect for a string quartet or harpist during your wedding ceremony.
The Green Room was, along with the rest of the Piano Nobile, refurbished using traditional and original materials in the late 1990s, and reflects a fine example of historical country house grandeur.
The glass-roofed Atrium at Botleys Mansion, with its stunning crystal chandeliers and abundance of natural light, is a more modern take on the wedding ceremony room. Before the roof was added by Bijou in 2009, the central Atrium space was an external courtyard and many of the features of the room, while reflected in the very finest of interior materials and features, still reflect this. It is a particularly grand wedding ceremony room, particularly suitable for larger numbers. Perfect for 150-200 guests but capable of seating up to 380, it boasts an impressive staircase down which the Wedding Party arrive for the ceremony.
The Temple Wing of the Atrium boasts an enormous set of double doors which open to reveal an aisle pathway through the Temple Garden. Wedding ceremony licensing still requires the signing itself to take place under cover so the registrars and the couple themselves sit just over the threshold and the guests are seated in the garden, either side of the pathway, for a delightful al fresco ceremony.
