The layout of the venue is perfect. The reception room is beautiful, light and leaves a lasting first impression. The wedding breakfast room was beautifully spread so you can see everyone from the top table, while remaining spacious. The evening room has great acoustics and is a fantastic space for dancing. The gardens are stunning – perfect for photographs and for guests to spend time in away from the main house. Importantly, the space available is so great and of such quality that if the weather isn’t perfect on your special day, you and your guests will have plenty of space to enjoy each other’s company without being crammed in, as is so often the case with other venues. I can’t speak highly enough of the food. The meal and buffet were both absolutely amazing. The serving staff were fantastic and you got the impression that the people helping you organise couldn’t do enough to help you.
The venue itself is stunning and has an onsite chapel which was a massive positive for us. The Events Manager Clare was fantastic throughout and got back to us very quickly when we had queries, was always willing to help and have us visit when we needed to. Many comments on the quality of the food after our wedding, especially the delicious canapés, and we really enjoyed the tasting session before. Being able to bring our own wine was also a massive selling point. To anyone thinking of booking the venue, go for it, you won’t regret it!
When we came to visit Woldingham School for the first time we were blown away. We couldn't have pictured a more beautiful venue for our special day, from the wonderful details in each room to the huge expanse of gardens - it was absolutely breath-taking. The lay out of the venue makes it perfect for guests to mingle together and ensures the day flowed seamlessly. Of course this was also down to the excellent staff at Woldingham. We could not recommend Clare (Events Manager) highly enough, she walked us through each step of the planning process at the venue and took away any fears or worries we had about the day. Always being so flexible and catering for our needs. The catering staff (and Jane in particular) were wonderful and our guests raved about the food. Wish we could re-live the day over and over again. Woldingham School really is the perfect wedding venue. 10/10 from us!
The food was fantastic, outstanding, as were the staff in helping to organise our special day. The function rooms and garden are stunning, prices are reasonable and we would rate Woldingham School as excellent. We have a friend who has already booked for this year!
Woldingham School was the first, and only, venue that we viewed and once we had the tour and met the Events Manager, Clare, there was no question we would be making the booking. The venue itself is in a stunning setting with rolling hills and fields on the drive up to it. The grounds are beautiful, but the interior is also gorgeous which was very important for us as we were having a February wedding, and couldn't rely on the weather. It did rain all day, but there were plenty of locations for photographs to be taken of us, the wedding party and all the guests inside. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was, and all the catering staff headed by Jane and Keiran made everything run smoothly and professionally on the day and in advance. Clare was an angel in the background, resolving potential issues before they even occurred. She liaised with all the suppliers to ensure they arrived on time, and reassured me every step of the way. I would recommend this venue to everyone - the location and staff make you feel as special as you should on your wedding day. Thank you!
Woldingham sets the bar for wedding venues and planning! A very big and heartfelt thank you to Clare, Jane and their team at Woldingham for making our wedding day so special. From the day of viewing the venue to the actual wedding day we very much appreciated all the support that was given and for the day itself to have been run so smoothly. With all the queries we put to both Clare and Jane, nothing seemed to be too much hassle and this certainly contributed towards making the planning stages stress free. Woldingham staff, the food, venue and grounds certainly exceeded all expectations. All our guests were in awe of Woldingham and its grounds and they too have commented on what a perfect day it was. Indeed, our day was a very memorable and magical one! We would, without a second’s hesitation, recommend Woldingham and its dedicated team.
Woldingham was the perfect setting for our wedding reception which we held in October. The school grounds are beautifully picturesque for photos and the wedding guests were stunned to silence arriving up the long winding driveway to arrive at such a magnificent building.
It was the perfect balance of beautiful outdoor space but pretty enough inside that you aren't reliant on the gardens if the weather isn't as planned! It was great to move from room to room and not have to worry about changeover of rooms. We had our ceremony at the venue too and the amount of space on offer was great. The catering service was excellent and many of our guests commented how great they were. The price was really reasonable compared to other venues we looked at. Added bonuses like no corkage charge really helped too. We'd also been really reluctant to go for a Friday wedding but our doubts were totally unfounded and I'm so glad we did - it was lovely to know that everyone else still had the whole weekend off so we could continue the celebrations on the Saturday before honeymoon on Sunday. We really had the best day. It sounds cliched but we couldn't have asked for a better day.
The school was a superb venue for our wedding. The food was exceptional, service second to none, and the setting more than we could have dreamt of. A magical day with discreet background organisation – who could ask for more?
We had a fantastic wedding reception at Woldingham School. The venue and its surrounding were perfect. The staff were excellent and made the whole process of organising it before and the actual day go very smoothly and exactly as we wanted. All our guests had a brilliant day and had nothing but praise for the venue.
