Interview With: Julie Gray

Venue Name: Nonsuch Mansion

Website: www.nonsuchmansion.com

Location: Nonsuch Park, Cheam, Surrey – about half an hour from London

What type of venue is Nonsuch Mansion and how old is the building?

That’s an interesting question! The main part of the mansion was built in the late seventeen hundreds, during the reign of George IV. It was home to wealthy merchant Samuel Farmer and five further generations of his family until it was given to the public in the 1930’s. The foundations of the building are much, much older, from a keepers lodge that was part of the fabulous, ‘unequalled’ palace that was built here 500 years ago by King Henry VIII. The palace itself was ruined centuries before the mansion was built but we like to think that the spirit of Nonsuch lives here. The Tudor Gothic architecture was designed by Jeffrey Wyatt as an echo of its majestic predecessor. Nonsuch Mansion has been many things over the centuries and has always held a cherished place in the heart, memory and daily life of the whole community.

What can a couple expect from having their wedding at Nonsuch Mansion?

Their own mansion for the day, exclusively theirs. We only ever hold one wedding at a time. Bovingdons (the caterers) have twenty two years experience of London weddings and we know how to tailor-make your day to your specifications.

What is the capacity for a wedding ceremony and wedding reception at Nonsuch Mansion?

Two of the staterooms are licensed for ceremonies; the Orchid Room for 130 guests and the Rose Room for 80 guests. For the reception the entire mansion can hold up to 250 reception style or 120 for dinner but there is also the option of a marquee on the lawn for anything up to 1000.
