What makes Frensham Hall the perfect wedding venue?

Updated: Jan 4, 2023

Choosing a wedding venue is no small task, with a vast range of locations, ceremony and reception options available, there’s lots to consider when deciding on the perfect venue for your big day.

If you're looking for something truly unique that not only you will love as a couple, but your guests will love too, then look no further. The wedding team at Frensham Hall have listed 10 reasons below as to why we think our beautiful rural venue stands out from the rest!

Frensham Hall’s History

Frensham Hall is a beautiful Edwardian manor house, rich in history that spans two world wars and has been the heart of a unique, independent school since 1925. Exquisite detailing throughout softens the grand building, creating an intimate personal space for events of all sizes. From the elegant balls of the early 1900s to an endless array of modern weddings and events, the warmth and versatility of Frensham Hall lends itself to all.

Rural Beauty

Frensham Hall is set within 100 acres of established woodlands, sweeping lawns and romantic gardens. You'll find it hard to believe you are only an hour from the hustle of London. If your heart belongs to the outdoors, you'll find the perfect spot here for a beautiful natural wedding - whether beneath the majestic trees or within the elegant walled garden. Or perhaps simply stood in front of a breathtaking backdrop of the rolling Surrey Hills offering unique photographic opportunities!

The Sky’s the Limit

Weddings at Frensham Hall start and end with you, your dreams and your perfect day. With no standard packages, each wedding begins with a clean slate, a beautiful background and the unique flexibility of venue and staff. Your perfect day may come to life as an intimate romantic ceremony in a magical tree house. Or perhaps you dream of sweeping down a grand staircase towards an elegant celebration in a stunning ballroom - to dance the night away in a manor which has hosted exquisite soirees for over a century. Or will we be pulling out all the stops with hundreds of guests celebrating in gorgeous decorated marquees on the lawn under a sky of stars and fireworks? The sky really is the limit.
