Hello, I’m Graham. Since 2005 I’ve been lucky enough to have been chosen by over a dozen couples to photograph their weddings at Nonsuch Mansion, one of my all time favourite wedding venues. Blessed with beautiful natural light and an idyllic parkland setting it’s no wonder that those in the know choose it for their wedding celebrations and also why I suspect it pretends not to exist : )
GETTING MARRIED AT NONSUCH
If you’ve chosen to get married at Nonsuch Mansion itself then you’ll be in The Orchid Room with its stunning stained glass windows and beautiful natural light pouring in through the triple bay window. This is one of my favourite rooms for wedding photography anywhere in Surrey. Although it has room for 120 guests from experience 80 seems perfect. Unless you’re having a Humanist wedding ceremony you’ll need to get in touch with Leatherhead registry office to conduct the ceremony.
DRINKS RECEPTION AT NONSUCH
As this is the one part of the day you’ll actually get to spend any quality time with your guests I highly recommend allowing two hours for your drinks reception. In good weather you’ll be on the lawn and if it’s raining (it never rains at Nonsuch Mansion) you’ll be having a cosy time in the Rose Room along with your guests. It’s actually quite nice having everyone together in the same room. If you need family photos and the weather is bad we’ll make use of the South Porch because the light is perfect.
PARTY TIME AT NONSUCH
Nonsuch Mansion was built for partying. You’ll have a great time dancing in the Rose Room while those that prefer a quieter time, or even a nap, can make use of the snug (don’t tell anyone) and with 11 bedrooms you can keep the party going long after the band goes home.
