An Exclusive Surrey Wedding Venue Like No Other.
Of all the top wedding venues in Surrey, this is one of the most magical – and it’s yours exclusively for the whole day. The country house draws you in with an intimate sparkle and the gardens are equally beautiful. It’s exquisitely furnished to provide a stunning setting for your wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast but also boasts a nightclub-style party space for more fun later. It’s not surprising our customers rank us among the very best Surrey wedding venues.
As an exquisite family home, Russets offers a more intimate and relaxed experience than you’ll find in a hotel or barn. Your guests will not be confined to a single room but instead enjoy wandering between our ceremony room, wedding breakfast marquee, comfy sofa lounge area, large bar and dance floor, and of course our glorious gardens.
“This venue is absolutely stunning, there are so many little touches and flowers everywhere, it’s beautiful.”
“The venue is amazing with scenic views all around. It has a wow factor as soon as you walk up to the house and step inside where you are completely stunned with how beautiful it is. Everywhere you go the venue flows and with each room comes a surprise. It is amazing!”
We will will be doing everything in accordance with government guidelines therefore we will ask you for all your guests names and email addresses. We will also need to know which ones are from the same household so that we can set up the ceremony room accordingly. When your guests enter Russets we will ask them their names and take their temperatures, so that we can track and trace them if necessary. Any one with a raise see temperature will not be allowed access.
Depending on the registrars requirements we may need to ask your guests to wear masks. There will be hand sanitising stations throughout Russets and we will remind guests to social distance and there will be floor markers.
Russets offers the best of both worlds. You can choose to marry inside in the lofty ceremony room or under the oak arbour on the manicured lawns.
Russets Country House has a civil wedding ceremony licence for 100 guests, inside or out, with no limit on the number of guests if you opt for a Humanist wedding. Inside you’ll love the bright, light, church-like feel of our ceremony room, with its stylish acrylic ice chairs. Alternatively, outside your guests can overlook acres of pristine manicured golf course to views of the Surrey hills, whilst you take your vows under the rose covered arbour with its built-in sound system and discreet microphone.

“We had the most perfect wedding at Russets Country House! Kate and Tim couldn’t have been more helpful and worked really hard to make sure everything was taken care of. They were really responsive in the run up to the wedding and we knew they would ensure our day went perfectly. The venue itself is stunning: lovely, light and airy. Separate areas for all the different parts of the wedding, ceremony, dinner, dancing, relaxing but still all joined together.”
