Amazing Wedding Day at Selsdon
Had an amazing wedding day at Selsdon Estate on 1 September. The venue is beautiful and we truly could not have asked for more from the wonderful staff and wedding coordinator (Hollie). The ceremony was held out in the secret garden. It was a perfect day and the setting was idiilic. We followed this up with the most amazing scenery for photographs. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Megan oversaw all the setting up and it was done to perfection. The room was beautifully laid out with all our favours and seating arrangements exactly as we wanted. The waiting team were brilliant led by Darris. Food was brought out quickly and it was piping hot and delicious. The evening turn around was quick and we had a great party. The barman (Daan) was really efficient and kept the drinks flowing all night and we danced the evening away with our friends and family and the most beautiful bride and groom. We would highly recommend De Vere Selsdon Estate as a wedding venue. The most amazing weekend and wedding.

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

We have a whole Wedding Planning guide here at De Vere Selsdon Estate and therefore we have plenty of hints and tips to get you started - drop us a line and we will glady share this with you.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

On our manor house stair case, when the sun is shinning and the colours from the stain glass window floods the staircase.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes, we had Cheryl Fergison (better known as Heather from Eastenders) wedding at our hotel with an A-list guest list!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

The Horsebox bar delivering Pizza and Prosecco!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Alan Doble Sanderson bought what is now De Vere Selsdon Estate in 1924 and transformed the mansion into a luxury country house hotel; however the estate predates this by hundreds of years. Traced back to as early as 861AD, an Anglo-Saxon hall, a medieval estate of the Knights Templar and a Victorian country seat are just some of its former lives.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The wedding team, they work incredibly hard day and night to cater for our amazing couples!
