Full Description
Set in beautiful Surrey countryside, Gildings comprises of several interconnecting barns, all of which retain their original charm and character and have not been spoilt by modernisation. We offer a choice of four local and absolutely first class catering partners, and can also recommend other tried and tested local suppliers. Gildings is a licensed venue, meaning you can conduct your legally binding wedding ceremony on site, and then have your celebrations afterwards without your guests having to move on to another location. We pride ourselves on exceptionally high standards of customer care, and like to build a relationship with all our clients in the lead up to their wedding. We will work with you every step of the way to help ensure your day is perfect in every way. Our brochure can be downloaded from the Home page of our website, or here;

Surrey Wedding Magazine

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

An extraordinary wedding based on a medieval-style banquet held at Christmas time, with long tables laden with a feast fit for royalty. All beneath the vast oak structure of Gildings Barn, illuminated by twinkling fairy lights. It was just spectacular and will be remembered for ever by everyone who experienced it. An incredible credit to the highly talented and artistic family members of the bride and groom.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Keep the decoration of the barns simple. They are stunning already, and are best complemented with country flowers or greenery and pretty bunting.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Wellington boots (clean ones!) used as table centre pieces for the floristry decorations!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Rustic. Unique. Rural. Enchanting. Romantic.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The little Granary in the garden

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The fact the barns are true barns, not modernised and not modern imitations which cannot match the immeasurable character of Gildings.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our commitment to helping ensure couples have the wedding celebrations of their dreams.
