News News West Horsley Place hosts first Wedding Ceremony We were absolutely delighted to host our first ever wedding ceremony in the Stone Hall this autumn and wish a long and joyful marriage to the happy couple. Wedding ceremonies and receptions are both a wonderful way of bringing the manor house back to life and to generate income vital to conservation and repair works at West Horsley Place. West Horsley Place has two rooms in the Manor House, licenced for ceremonies, the Stone Hall and the Morning Room. In addition our newly renovated Place Farm Barn is also licenced for (even larger) ceremonies. So we can cater for intimate events or larger celebrations, along with the receptions afterwards. Though West Horsley Place Trust has carried out emergency repairs and completed works to make the manor house safe and comfortable for public access; much remains to be done and WHP is still on Historic England Heritage At Risk register. When couples choose us as a reception or ceremony venue it is wonderful to see WHP become a significant place in their lives. They also enjoy knowing that their venue hire fee will help us to save this wonderful building and estate for future generations. On several occasions members of the bridal couples' families have become volunteers at WHP. It means a lot to us that couples and their families and guests see WHP as more than just a venue. Because our calendar is filled with charitable and public access activities we have limited availability for weddings each year. However, this makes our weddings all the more special; we pride ourselves that each one is bespoke to the couple. Our exclusive catering and events management partner rhubarb provide exceptional service and support, nothing is too much trouble. "The food on both days was just perfect. So many of our guests told us how much they had enjoyed it and many said it was the best wedding food they had ever tasted! We are still savouring the ceviche and lemon tart from Saturday; today sadly we finished up the last of the feta tart from Sunday and the chocolate torte was just to die for! For us the rhubarb team and WHP were the perfect combination and we count ourselves really lucky to have experienced both."
