Holding your wedding at Upwey House means enjoying SO much more than just the ceremony and celebration - you can revel in the before and after too with the people that you love the most. Upwey House is truly majestic but we do not stand on ceremony. We pride ourselves on our friendly, fuss-free and flexible approach and we want you to make our house your home during your stay. Whilst the house provides a stunning backdrop, the private 23 acres of rural landscape offers the very best nature has to offer. You could say "I do" inside in our cosy yet bright Drawing Room, under our rose-clad gazebo or on our terrace lawn gazing out over the South Coast or in the woodland on the lazy banks of the River Wey.
Our wedding packages include a three-night stay over a weekend at Upwey House (for up to 24 guests) with private and exclusive use of the property and 23 acres of grounds. We can accommodate up to 120 people for your ceremony and/or celebration and prices depend on numbers and seasonality. Costs for the registrars, coverings such as marquees, stretch tents or awnings, catering, portable WCs and chair/table hire are additional. There is no corkage fee and you can bring in your own suppliers as long as they have suitable insurance.
One day or 1-2 night wedding packages are possible midweek (Tuesday-Thursday) off-season.
If you require a wedding coordinator we work with Ella from ECB Wedding & Events Planner, you can contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see below for information on options for smaller, more intimate weddings for up to 60 people and larger scale events for up to 120. Feel free to contact us on email@example.com with any questions at all.

What you may need for your wedding
We welcome all types and style of wedding from a cosy and intimate gathering with just those people staying at the house or an all-singing, all-dancing event for up to 120 guests. Or you can opt for something in between. Whatever your preference Upwey House is a breath-taking venue from the very first moment your guests turn in from the driveway and see the 17th Century Manor House perched on top of the hill.
Below you will find details on elements you may need for your wedding. For weddings of 60 and under you can use the facilities at the house, meaning your caterer can use our kitchen or The Cook House to prepare your food and your guests can use the toilets in the house rather than hire in portable WC's. You can hire in a stretch-tent style covering for the terrace so that your guests can enjoy a wedding breakfast or relaxed BBQ without worrying about the rain or too much sun. For larger weddings of over 60, you might want to think about a tipi or marquee on the lower tennis court lawn. For numbers over 60 you will need to consider caterers who can provide generators and portable WC's.

"What an absolutely incredible week we've had at Upwey House! A stunning venue for our wedding, so many beautiful moments and memories made. Thank you so much to Sarah-Jayne and Kerry for everything, from answering all our queries to landscaping the woods so we could be the first woodland wedding at Upwey House. Our photos look incredible, we are so pleased we captured the beauty of this place. The only downside is that we have to leave!"
