Botleys Mansion Ceremonies & Receptions

Wedding Ceremonies

There are several different locations around Botleys Mansion in Surrey, in which to host your luxurious wedding ceremony, depending on the size of your guest list.

The beautifully decorated Green Room is ideal for hosting small, intimate wedding ceremonies, whereas the grand Atrium is simply perfect for accommodating larger wedding guest numbers of up to 250. Regardless of where you choose to tie the knot, your elegant wedding ceremony at Botleys Mansion in Surrey will typically be followed by a memorable drinks reception and wedding banquet before the evening part of your wedding celebration commences. The local wedding registry office to Botleys Mansion is in Weybridge, Surrey and for couples wishing to host a traditional church wedding ceremony, there are also several churches nearby.

Intimate Wedding Ceremonies in The Green Room

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 wedding ceremonies. Its warm oak floors and soft (white, greens and pinks) pastel décor create a calm, soothing space in which to affirm your love. As throughout Botleys Mansion in Surrey, the immaculate 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 romantic 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.

Large Wedding Ceremonies in The Atrium

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 up to 250 seated guests, it boasts an impressive staircase down which the Wedding Party arrive for the ceremony.

Wedding Ceremonies in The Temple Garden

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 wedding ceremony.

Wedding Receptions

Botleys Mansion in Surrey boasts several flexible spaces for your wedding reception. On sunny days, of course, the grounds and surrounding parkland provide a beautiful backdrop for photographs and other activities.

Inside, the modernity of the Atrium complements the more traditional lean of the Piano Nobile and, with careful planning, it is possible to enjoy both elements of the Mansion during the natural flow of your wedding day. The in-house Bijou Weddings catering team exists solely to work with you to ensure that the food and drink on your day are precisely what you want and need.

Small Wedding Receptions in The Green Room

For wedding breakfasts for up to 80 guests, the romantic Green Room offers a traditionally grand entertaining experience for small but luxurious wedding celebrations. Crisp white table linens perfectly complement the gentle décor and abundance of natural light. With Bijou’s expert team of in-house chefs, choose a perfect menu with fine wines to compliment every course if you wish. After your intimate wedding reception in the Green Room, enjoy the rest of the elegant country mansion with your friends and family as your celebrations continue.

Wedding Receptions in The Elegant Atrium

The Atrium, with its two wings that can open up for a larger wedding breakfast, offers a very flexible space for luxurious wedding receptions. The central Atrium itself is perfect for any numbers up to and including 140 guests – the wings can be opened up to add capacity for a further 110 guests. For weddings not using the entire space, keeping part of the room closed during the wedding breakfast offers the ability to open up later on, giving your guests an exciting surprise and, furthermore, allowing the evening’s entertainment to set up out of sight – thus ensuring no disturbance and, what’s more, allowing seamless transition from the banquet straight into the first dance. The Fountain Wing boasts a splendid sparkly dance floor, with set up for your DJ, and the Temple Wing is home to the bar and some comfortable seating areas.

Evening Wedding Reception Festivities at Botleys Mansion

During the evening, Botleys Mansion offers a choice between keeping all of your guests together in one space (the Atrium) for the evening’s festivities, or using the Piano Nobile floor to give more of a house party feel.

If opting for the latter, the Dining Room, Morning Room and Library all offer delightful spaces in which to relax, mingle, and enjoy your evening buffet and drinks. There is also space (in either scenario) for any additional fun that you’d like to introduce – be it a roving magician, a Photo Booth or a couple of casino tables. The Green Room is an excellent choice evening wedding reception entertainment, music and dancing.

Wedding Reception Food and Drink

As a member of the Bijou Wedding Venues family, Botleys Mansion in Surrey benefits from the experience of Bijou’s expert, in-house team of banqueting chefs. Catering for wedding receptions and banquets is a very specialist branch of the hospitality industry and requires specific practices and processes. Our chefs are full-time specialists who only work in Bijou’s banqueting kitchens.

Late Licence

Botleys Mansion enjoys the advantage of a late licence for entertainment and for serving alcohol. This means you can extend your wedding reception celebrations into the early hours without fear of disturbing any neighbours. Furthermore, of course, given that Botleys Mansion is an exclusive use wedding venue, we are always happy to serve nightcaps to any overnight guests once the non-residents have departed.

Fireworks at Botleys Mansion
