Information about the venue
A wedding at Russets Country House in Surrey captures the essence of traditional English elegance and charm, for this stunning private home hidden within the Surrey Hills radiates the beauty of its surroundings. Russets Country House sits proudly within its own four acre estate overlooking an 100 acre landscaped golf course and with gorgeous panoramic views across the Surrey / Sussex borders at Chiddingfold, there are ample opportunities to capture the highlights of a momentous occasion with breathtaking wedding day photography.
The house itself has recently been refurbished to give it a classical, yet modern style and its neutral colour scheme not only allows natural light to flow in and set a light, airy mood, but acts as the perfect backdrop for individual themes and bridal colour schemes.
Russets Country House is licenced to hold civil ceremonies in a selection of rooms, accommodating for up to 150 guests for a wedding breakfast and an additional 70 for evening parties. Its extensive range of facilities instantly adds to the magical attraction and gives an exclusive home from home atmosphere. Luxuriate in the ensuite Bridal Suite, pamper and prepare your bridal party for the big day and then opt for either the elegant Ceremony Room or Banqueting Room to say your wedding vows and enjoy a traditional wedding breakfast. For summer weddings, the beautiful oak arbour set within the gorgeous landscaped lawns is an alternative romantic option.
Fantastic Wedding Photo Opportunities
The catering team at Russets Country House have assembled a unique range of international cuisine designed by European, Asian and African caterers. Tailor made menus can readily be prepared to accommodate all tastes, budgets, age groups and dietary needs, so whether you decide on an informal hog roast, a formal three course meal, a summer barbecue or a relaxed evening buffet, there is a wide array of delicious, freshly prepared options to choose from. All tableware, cutlery, glassware, and the services of waiting staff to lay tables and serve meals are included in these wedding menu packages.
Wines and alcoholic drinks can either be supplied via Russets nightclub style bars or the freedom to bring your own alcoholic accompaniments to meals and champagne toasts exists with an applicable corkage fee.
A further unusual option for a country house location is the stunning dance floor and nightclub style entertainment venue. The team are happy to advise on wedding music and the use of free speakers, electrical rigging, and mood lighting is provided to give a dynamic party atmosphere.
Russets Country Home, being a functional residential home, is unable to provide overnight accommodation. However, its convenience to both Guildford and the nearby Surrey / Sussex border towns guarantees an extensive selection of guest houses, bed and breakfast and hotel accommodation to suit all budgets. Additionally, the wedding team have compiled a list of local amenities and taxi cab companies to assist in making such a memorable occasion as stress free as possible.
Russets Country Home is unique – a picturesque country location, stunning surroundings with the added benefit of convenient transport links and superb yet flexible wedding planning expertise. What more could you possibly wish for?
