Selsdon Park Hotel is a wonderful, vast Surrey wedding venue that offers a multitude of different rooms and opportunities for an experienced and creative Surrey wedding photographer.

 

Selsdon Park Hotel - A brief history

Back in the ninth century, Selsdon Park Hotel was then known as Selsdon Mansion and the area was named Selle Dun, which meant 'mansion on the hill'.

Its history spans a thousand years and many reincarnations; from an Anglo-Saxon hall to a medieval farmhouse, then from a Tudor and Elizabethan manor house to a Victorian country house to the present day.

The oldest part of the hotel is on the second floor and known as the Tudor corridor with it's dark wooden panelling and it here that Ghost sightings of the little Grey Lady have been seen by some of the staff and guests.

After many of changes of ownership in the 19th and early 20th century it was finally bought by Allan Doble Sanderson, a businessman and racing car driver in 1924 who converted the mansion into a 23 room luxury hotel, which was enlarged in a Neo-Jacobean style and opened to guests in 1926. In 1929 he had a golf course designed on the 200 acres of land available and it remains to this day much as it was then. On the lawn along with some specimen trees is a cedar from Lebanon which was planted there over 400 years ago by Queen Elizabeth I ( 1533-1603).

 

Wedding photography opportunities at Selsdon Park Hotel Surrey

Selsdon Park Hotel is a large Neo-Jacobean style building with over 200 rooms, 26 function rooms and an 18 hole golf course. Having worked in most of the wedding function rooms we are very familiar with the vast rambling layout and the best places both inside and out for great wedding photographs.

When the weather is fine and all the guests can spill out onto the large terrace and lawn area this provides the photographer with a great opportunity for some informal, reportage wedding photography. There are also a number of special areas in the grounds where the light is perfect for some lovely romantic wedding photographs of the Bride and Groom.

As wedding photographers we enjoy the atmosphere here: with so many function rooms there are always many things going on at the same time but the staff act efficiently and without fuss so things run very smoothly, often helped along by the toastmasters in their striking red coats and commanding voices.
