A wonderful experience from start to finish
Gildings is a beautiful barn full of history for the family who own it. The staff, in particular, Hilary who manages the barn were always helpful and friendly. We visited several times before our wedding day and had all of our questions answered including some questions we hadn't thought of! The Gildings team took away lots of the stresses before the day and during it. It has beautiful grounds with the option of getting married in the smaller outdoor barn (the granary) so guests can be outside in nice weather. We would highly recommend Gildings for a wedding venue!

Best wedding venue ever
We fell in love with Gildings as soon as we saw it. It's rustic charm is just beautiful and has so much character. All our guests loved it and it was perfect for us. Penny, Richard and Hilary are the warmest, most helpful people. Thank you!

Perfect venue for our wonderful day
We had a fanstastic time at Gildings Barn. We were lucky enough to be able to get in the day before to decorate and the weather was on our side this summer to get married in the garden. It’s a DIY venue but they supply tables and chairs. All I would suggest is make sure you get everything straight with the vendors but about how your day will proceed. We had a few issues on the day but it didn’t impact our enjoyment. Only other thing is it closes down at 11pm so the party has to stop. And none of us were ready to go home yet!

Memories for a lifetime...
'Dear Penny and Richard, we can't thank you enough for everything you have done for us. We had the most magical Christmas wedding that couldn't have been more special. Gildings is one of a kind and from the moment I saw it about 6 years ago I fell in love with it and I hoped that one day I might be able to have my wedding reception here. Thank you so much, we now have memories for a lifetime and you've both made that possible. The caterer Chris Moon exceeded expectations...so many guests commented on how delicious the food was. I wish I could have eaten more!! All in all, it was a once in a life time day in a beautiful and extremely special barn. Anyone else who gets married at Gildings is extremely lucky. Thank you. Love from Emma and Ollie'

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.
