De Vere Horsley Estate | Wedition Venue Spotlight

by Liz Gatherer

Set in 70 acres of Surrey parkland, the ornate turrets impress all as you arrive via the sweeping driveway. This lakeside 19th century mansion house near Guildford, is easy to fall in love with. The Great Hall with a cantilever ceiling and oak-panelled walls, the secret chapel and the mansion's cloisters offer a wealth of photo opportunities. The mansion is available for exclusive use, and with 28 bedrooms, three stunning spaces and a dedicated team of wedding coordinators, your wedding day at Horsley Estate will be unforgettable.

What's your favourite fun fact that you love to share with Horsley Estate couples?

One of my favourite fun facts about Horsley Estate is that it was once the ancestral home for the Lovelace family, Ada Lovelace was the daughter of the Victorian romantic poet Lord Byron. It's the finer details and special touches of the venue and wedding couple that I love to include within Wedition. What's your favourite fun fact that you love to share with wedding couples?

The Great Hall has 150 coats of arms on display from families that Lord Lovelace was acquainted to. You will find some around the room that have been rubbed off, this was where he had fallen out with them! His own version of a Christmas card list!
