Cain Manor is a jewel of a country house wedding venue, nestled on the brow of a hill among its own private land and surrounded by thick green English forest on the border of Surrey and Hampshire. Its long, winding driveway through private woodland serves as a perfect introduction to the rustic character of the house and estate. The venue oozes romance, rustic style and English countryside charm and is only available on an exclusive use basis for wedding celebrations and receptions.
This beautiful barn-style country house joined the Bijou Wedding Venues family in 2003, since which time it has reveled in the hosting of truly spectacular barn-style wedding celebrations. It is licensed for civil ceremonies both inside and out and can seat up to 123 guests for your wedding breakfast. The wedding venue itself is thick with character - beautiful period details and old oak floors and beams are beautifully married with the finest in modern style and luxury to create an utterly perfect home-from-home country house wedding venue. The grounds offer a similar combination of styles, itself a signature of the Bijou Group, with the manicured feature gardens sitting cosily among rolling wild-flower meadows, wild forest and stunning views over the Surrey hills.
In practical terms, Cain Manor is among the finest of wedding venues in the Surrey-Hampshire area. The venue boasts a selection of stunning spaces, both inside and outside, in which you can host the various elements of your Wedding Day. The garden gazebo and oak-beamed Music Room, with its stunning cathedral windows and triple-height ceilings, are both licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and the Library and patio are beautiful spots to entertain your guests during reception drinks and the evening parts of the wedding festivities. The venue also boasts a stunning bridal suite and 13 further bedrooms for your nearest and dearest to enjoy on the night of your wedding celebrations and leisure facilities for them to enjoy during their stay. Importantly, Cain Manor is designed in such a way as to be utterly wonderful at any time of year - no compromises are required if the weather is poor, or you choose a winter date.

It is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies both inside and out and offers a choice of wedding celebration and entertaining spaces.

Cain Manor is licensed to host beautiful wedding ceremonies both inside in the Music Room, for up to 123 guests, or outside on the patio if you’re planning a summer celebration. The Music Room is a bright, airy barn-style space with a stunning floor-to-ceiling cathedral window facing out onto the landscaped grounds. It is perfect for saying your ‘I dos’ in cosy, intimate style. The views across the rolling Surrey countryside from the top of the aisle are simply breath-taking and your wedding photographer will be spoilt for choice. Once your wedding ceremony has taken place and your marriage is official, you will relax and enjoy a celebratory drink outside on the lawn (weather permitting!) or in the Library.
If you’re getting married during the late spring or summer months, then nuptials on the patio, either under the gazebo or outside The Music Room, are possible. Commence married life overlooking the finest views in the county and take advantage of the natural backdrop provided by the grounds and far-reaching views surrounding Cain Manor. There are more beautiful photo spots than can fit into a day - both inside and outside the wedding venue itself.
Private and secluded, the approach to the barn-style manor house is via a long, winding driveway through thick green English forest. The stunning woodland driveway leading up to the wedding venue feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of London, which is only an hour away by car.
This country house has been expertly adapted by the Bijou team to serve as a truly excellent wedding venue - the Elizabethan oak-beamed barn-style country house wedding venue boasts spectacular landscaped grounds, virtually unlimited parking for all your guests and of course all of the wedding planning, wedding venue and wedding catering expertise that comes with booking an exclusive use country house wedding venue with Bijou. It can host up to 123 wedding guests for a country house wedding reception and up to 170 later on in the evening.
Inside the cosy country house there are several luxurious reception spaces in which to host and entertain your wedding guests during the various parts of your wedding day - whether it’s a sunny summer’s afternoon or a cold December night, with the fires roaring. After a romantic wedding ceremony and celebratory drinks either outside on the patio or inside the cosy Library, the barn-style Music Room will play host to a spectacular wedding breakfast banquet celebration. During your meal, you and your guests will enjoy the fruits of many years of the Bijou in-house kitchen team’s hard work and constant quest for wedding menu perfection.
Among other things, Cain Manor boasts a gorgeously appointed bridal suite in which newlyweds can spend their first night as a married couple. Thirteen additional luxury bedroom suites are available for the bridal party to enjoy on the night of the wedding, ranging from spacious king-sized beds to cosy twin rooms, suitable for younger guests. A swimming pool and tennis courts can also be found within the grounds of the wedding venue; ideal for couples and families wishing to relax and enjoy the glorious setting pre or post-wedding.
The morning after your wedding you will wake, as a married couple, in the peace and quiet of Cain Manor’s exquisite countryside location, before perhaps enjoying a stroll around the grounds while you reminisce about the day before meeting your overnight guests for a hearty breakfast. After breakfast you will bid farewell to your overnight guests and the Bijou staff and depart Cain Manor back down the lovely driveway before heading home (or off on your honeymoon) as a married couple.
Choosing a wedding venue with accommodation can have several benefits. It removes many of the timing risks involved with travelling between venues and allows you to prepare for your wedding in a calm, peaceful, luxurious environment. Relax and enjoy every element of home - from getting ready in the Bridal Suite before your big moment to a nightcap with nearest and dearest before tumbling into bed in a warm haze, having had a truly wonderful day.
Cain Manor is a charming, country house wedding venue with traditional barn-style features throughout.

The grounds and gardens that surround Cain Manor are always beautifully manicured and offer a quiet, peaceful location to host post-wedding drinks and canapés.
