A great venue
Woldingham School is a great venue to work with. Clare and her team are really accommodating and go out of their way to help you. The venue is a great backdrop for wedding photography, and the use of different rooms means the wedding flows seamlessly. They also cater for religious weddings in their chapel and civil ceremonies in the main house.

We could not recommend Woldingham highly enough
The Catering Manager and her team were absolutely fantastic. They were so professional and extremely well organised. The food was lovely – thank you Chef! We loved our tasting day and the food on the day was perfect. We had an amazing day. The venue and staff were brilliant. Clare (Director of Events) was fantastic – she was extremely kind, caring and efficient. She always kept us informed and was on the end of the phone if we needed help (which was really reassuring) – thank you so much. We couldn’t have wished for a better day.

We were so delighted that we chose this venue
From the moment I met Clare the venue co-ordinator I knew I would be in safe hands. A huge thank you to Clare, Jane and Sue for running our wedding day so professionally and smoothly. Clare with much ease relaxed and reassured us throughout the numerous visits, from the exchange of emails to the grand entrance as husband and wife. When meeting Jane the catering manager we were positively blown away by her over accommodating advice and reassurance. We are privileged to have met an extraordinary, elegant and sophisticated team whose organisation ensured all our requirements were met. The catering scale was unbelievable. Simply superb food with mouth-watering dishes. The banqueting style of the waiting staff gives real credit to the wedding industry with extremely high quality when they served our guests. They provided an outstanding diner experience. Again thank you team for making our Special Day remarkable!!! Definitely well worth visiting as a future wedding location!!!

I would recommend this venue to everyone we know
What a beautiful venue to have our wedding. We were exceptionally happy with everything on the day. Clare (our organiser and registrar) answered all our questions even up to the last minute. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer or more helpful person for our special day. The food and catering staff were exceptional. They were helpful before the day and on our wedding day they couldn’t do enough for us and our guests. We didn’t want to leave and were looked after so well by all the staff both before and during our wedding day. A gorgeous location and grounds.

Beautiful grounds, amazing food and lovely staff
We fell in love with the venue the first time we viewed it and all of our guests have been incredibly complimentary too. Marden Park’s grounds are simply stunning and the layout and size of the function rooms accommodated our large number of guests perfectly. We had lovely weather on the day but if this had not been the case we knew that our guests would still enjoy spending time inside the mansion itself. Peter (Deputy Catering Manager) and his team were friendly, attentive and very professional throughout the planning stage and on the day itself. The food was beautiful and the silver service was a nice surprise for our guests. Clare (Events Manager) was simply wonderful throughout the entire planning stage. She quickly provided answers to our (many!) questions and offered sincere advice and helpful pointers when discussing particular elements of the day with us. She was also amazing on the wedding morning itself, ensuring that everything went as planned and that we did not have to worry about anything.
