Scene setting

With its beautiful grounds and Palladian architecture, Botleys Mansion has an aura of timelessness. While it’s only half-an-hour from London, this lush and secluded corner of Surrey close to Chertsey feels a world away. The property sits in 56-acres of parkland and gardens and its graceful frontage and exquisite marble-floored entrance hall are just perfect for a grand arrival. Once inside, you’ll find the interiors have been artfully designed to deliver elegant period grandeur with every modern luxury. There are a variety of superb spaces for both ceremony and celebration, and the mansion can accommodate up to 250 for the daytime party and 500 for the evening. There are 12 luxurious bedrooms (including a very grand bridal suite) so you and your special guests can stay over.

Perfect for…

The choice of internal party spaces is dazzling, so Botleys is perfect for designing a variety of different moods within one 24-hour period. The elegant Green Room on the Piano Noble level makes a lovely choice for wedding ceremonies (up to 131 people), and with its large windows and soft pastel décor it’s a classic country-house backdrop. For something larger still, the stunning contemporary Atrium has an almost cathedral-like quality with its arched ceiling and lavish crystal chandeliers. To add to the grandeur, the wedding party enters down a wide wooden staircase, which looks stunning dressed with flowers. The large Atrium seats up to 250 guests for a ceremony and is also the perfect space for a wedding banquet and dancing. There are multiple other areas of the mansion that can be incorporated into your celebration – adding to the luxurious house-party feel – including the Dining Room, Morning Room and Library.

The gardens at Botleys are just made for wedding photography. One of the most idyllic spots is the Temple Garden, which is accessed from the Atrium via grand double doors. This romantic outdoor setting is also perfect for alfresco ceremonies, reception drinks or as a party breakout space.

Extra magic

The classic architecture, gloriously photogenic grounds and luxurious rooms (including those 11 guest rooms and grand bridal suite) make this the perfect spot for a glamorous house-party. Since you have the keys to the mansion for a whole 24 hours, you can design a celebration that feels truly unique. There’s space for entertainment, including fireworks, in the grounds and the party can carry on into the small hours without worries about neighbours. Although Botleys is a superbly private setting, it’s also within incredibly easy reach of the capital – so ultra-convenient if you have guests travelling to celebrate with you via London airports or railway stations.
