Venue Spotlight: High Billinghurst Farm Wedding Venue – A Hidden Gem in the Surrey Countryside
This summer, I’ve had the privilege of visiting countless venues, each offering its unique allure. One venue that stands out is High Billinghurst Farm, a perfect blend of rustic elegance and contemporary sophistication. Situated in the scenic Surrey countryside, this wedding venue is a hidden treasure for couples seeking a memorable experience.
I officiated the ceremony of the wonderful Sian and Jit, who had a 120 guest ceremony in the rose garden of this exquisite venue!
A Closer Look at High Billinghurst Farm Wedding Venue
High Billinghurst Farm is a venue that radiates rustic glamour. The property boasts two distinct barns: a spacious hay barn adorned with a grand fireplace and shimmering chandeliers, and an interconnecting Elizabethan barn that can be used for both ceremonies and long nights on the dancefloor. With a capacity for up to 150 guests, it’s a versatile space for both intimate and grand weddings.
Types of Ceremonies at High Billinghurst Farm
Although High Billinghurst Farm is not licensed for civil ceremonies, it offers endless choices for couples! With so many spaces to choose from – including the rose garden, woodland, bars, or lawns, couples can opt for a highly personalised ceremony in a space that matches their style perfectly.
The passion High Billinghurst has for celebrant ceremonies is incomparable! They genuinely want their couples to have the best and most personalised ceremony possible and I for one love that!
All that’s required is that couples book their legal registry service before or after the big day. Then the possibilities are well and truly endless!
The Atmosphere at High Billinghurst Farm
The vibe at High Billinghurst Farm is both relaxed and glamorous. The venue’s layout is seamless, ensuring guests feel immediately at home. The main barn typically serves as the dining area, while the adjacent Elizabethan barn is perfect for initial receptions, ceremonies, or as a place to recharge. The acoustics in the Elizabethan barn are particularly noteworthy, especially during the exchange of vows.
What I love about High Billinghurst Farm
Other than their love for celebrant ceremonies, what distinguishes High Billinghurst Farm is its commitment to exclusivity. The venue hosts a limited number of weddings each year, guaranteeing that each event is unique and special.
Another advantage is the venue’s flexibility concerning alcohol; you’re free to bring your own beverages without any corkage or bar setup fees! What’s cooler still, is they have their own prop store. This is an absolute treasure trove of fun things to mooch through, and it’s all available for hire!
But most of all, it’s just stunning! Even beyond the venue itself, the views of the surrounding fields are exquisite. You genuinely feel like you are tucked away from the rest of the world and can enjoy your wedding day in total privacy.
