Botleys Mansion - A Grand, Exclusive Use Wedding Venue in Surrey
Saturday was unbelievable, and it wouldn't have been possible without everyone who's been involved from Botleys, from start to finish. From Emma, who at the outset, made us believe a crazy pipedream (with 3 months to do it!) was doable, to Maddie, for being so brilliant at responding to our queries, big and small, and pulling everything together to make sure we got there on the big day, to Guy, Dan and Rachel (and all of the staff around them), on the day, and beforehand, for being the most genuine, attentive, supportive, and brilliant guys, and making sure the day ran smoothly. Everyone left on Saturday (or Sunday if they were staying), praising the venue beyond belief, and saying they'd genuinely had the best day ever. The great thing for us is, rather than just being left wondering whether it's just something people say after your wedding, we truly believe them, and think so too.

My husband Jon and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone at Botleys Mansion for making our wedding day so special from start to finish on the 1st November, 2018. Also a huge thanks for all your hard work helping us along the way with the planning process to ensure everything went so smoothly. We could not have done it without you all. So professional and attentive we could not have asked for any more and could not have imagined it any better. We want to give special thanks to the members of staff who were there on the day - Casey who was our operations manager, Dean who was our night manager accompanied by Emma R, and Sarah along with Emma M on the day. Also thanks to Carol who was fabulous at our final planner meeting and Maddie for always answering our queries via email so quickly and precisely. Thank you also for our gift at breakfast - the lovely print of Botleys Mansion that we will cherish forever. I honestly cannot recommend you all enough. You were all so kind and friendly to us on the day and we felt like we were in a dream.

On Monday we had the pleasure of celebrating our daughter's wedding at Cain Manor. It is a beautiful venue many of our guests commented on how lovely it is. For us a very special day was made even more so by your extremely friendly, professional and courteous staff - one and all they did a superb job.

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all the online planning you did for Mike and Megs wedding. From the moment we viewed the venue back in September his sister and I knew it was the venue for them. Megs had found you from Australia but it was too far to view and amazingly just down the road from us in Windlesham. It truly is a remarkable venue and all the staff are amazing, the food delicious and the bedrooms are out of this world.
