Nutfield Priory Hotel wedding photography
Anya and Mikey’s wedding at Nutfield Priory Hotel, a neo-Gothic Victorian mansion near Redhill in Surrey.
This was a wedding from start to finish at Nutfield Priory. From bridal prep, to Mike waiting in the ceremony room. From the ceremony to drinks inside (not the best weather day). A few quick portraits in the grounds – a small copse of trees near the entrance to the confetti run outside the main entrance to the hotel. Some confetti for their young son, Leo, too. Dinner, speeches and a ceilidh to finish. Their son Leo didn’t get in the action at their pre-wedding shoot earlier in the year but he made sure it got into the action during the wedding vows!
Nutfield Priory – there was real priory here once – is part of the Handpicked chain. Weddings are run slickly, with friendly staff. Like many such mansions, it had a variety of rich owners, like Joshua Fielden MP of Todmorden in Lancashire. The architecture, from the late 1870s, is said to be inspired by that of the Palace of Westminster. In particular, the large tower that dominates the front of the building. It was a school, a base for troops in WWII, before becoming a hotel and spa in the 1980s. It is now one of Surrey’s key wedding venues.
The kind of venue that can accommodate the whole wedding day with ease. In summer, there is the terrace, overlooking the Surrey countryside, such as at this wedding reception that I covered at Nutfield. There are no expansive grounds but their views, interesting architecture and good food and drink. It has an atmosphere that lends itself to creating a relaxed wedding day vibe. If you are planning to get married in Surrey, it’s worth checking out!
Here are a few images from the day…
