Warren House is a lovely Grade ll listed 19th Century Victorian mansion located in the exclusive and secluded Coombe Estate in Kingston Upon Thames and a hidden gem of a Surrey wedding venue.

 

A Brief History of Warren House

Prior to the house being built the area surrounding it became the centre of a local feud, known as 'The Battle of Coombe Warren' after the Duke of Cambridge the then owner put a gate up over The Warren, now known as Warren Road, claiming it private property. But in a court case in 1853 it was given unrestricted use as a footpath but not as a carriageway which it remains to this day.

In 1865 the banker Hugh Hammersley bought 16 acres of land off the Duke and commission the building of Warren House. In the 1870's Hammersley got Coombe Nursery, famous for its rare specimens of magnolias, azaleas and acers and Japanese Water Garden to sell an intersecting plot of land (with the water garden) so completing the garden areas for the house.

The house was a popular venue with The Prime Minister William Gladstone as well as royalty, Edward Vll, George V, George Vl and Queen Mary and the house remains very much the same as it was then.

After the First World War it became a military convalescent home, then a training and conference centre for ICI in 1954 and finally it was reopened after an extensive refurbishment in 1988.

 

Warren House wedding photographer opportunities 

There are nine interconnecting ground floor reception rooms including lounges and dining areas so finding your way around for the first time can be a little confusing.

For larger wedding the rather grand looking Edwardian Ballroom which was modelled to a miniature scale on the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, makes a lovely wedding ceremony room with its white walls, columns, tall mirrors and crystal chandeliers and offering seating for up to 100 guests. The natural light floods in from the windows that lead onto the gardens providing the perfect lighting conditions for some beautifully intimate and natural wedding pictures during the ceremony.

For smaller and more intimate wedding ceremonies there are The Garden Rooms comprising of The Lilac Room with a seated capacity of up to 16 guests, the Lavender Room (up to 20 guests) and the Magnolia Room (up to 25 seated guests). These inter-connecting rooms can also be joined together and used as a drinks reception room. In addition there is The Azalea Room which is a room which can be set up for entertaining children throughout the day. All of these rooms look out onto the beautiful green landscaped gardens so providing a tranquil background throughout the day.

After the wedding ceremony guests can spill out onto the four acres of tranquil landscaped gardens including an extensive lawn area with opportunities to play outside garden games such as croquet and chess. The gardens also include trees, mature shrubs, a romantic stone gazebo, an extensive terrace area with a grand Victorian water fountain, a Winter Garden and Grotto and an Italian style loggia.

So for the group wedding photographs there are plenty of areas with fine backdrops including the classic everyone standing around the fountain wedding picture and for some romantic pictures of the newlyweds there are the grounds as mentioned above  including the ornate and grand wooden staircase inside the house and a separate garden terrace with a wall covered in Wisteria.

If you really want some more open space and have the time then Richmond Park is a short drive away.

The lovely light and airy Persian Dining Room is the setting for the Wedding Breakfast, with a capacity of up to 100 seated guests and again looking out over the gardens and with direct access onto the terrace, which is also the perfect place for any confetti throwing.

For the evening entertainment there is The London Room which is a good open space for the first dance and any subsequent lively celebrating throughout the night and is the only area where amplified music can be played. Warren House to summarise is a tranquil and serene Surrey wedding venue which is always welcoming and very smoothly run.

Walking around inside and around the grounds you can't help but feel its romantic charm.
