Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We have had so many great weddings at Surrey National it would be hard to choose. I personally love the chatter and laughter at weddings when friends and family who may have not seen each other for a while get together. To me a great wedding is superb food, good music, plenty of dancing, a well stocked bar and one large space so you don't lose your guests in other rooms!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Your wedding day is so special and you won't want it to end. Give yourself plenty of time throughout the day to have your photographs, mingle with your guests and just enjoy every moment. It really is a day you cherish forever.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
I love a themed wedding so it's the attention to detail with favours, stationary, décor, personalised gifts.

I would say we treat every wedding as bespoke and therefore tailor to our customer's needs. This could be adapting the menu to accommodate a theme or dietary request, sourcing a certain brand of drink from our supplier and our flexibility.
