Surrey is one of England’s most alluring and picturesque counties. Not only is it England’s most wooded county, but it is also home to some of the best gardens in Britain nestled in-between rolling hills and valleys. It is easy to see why the county is a much-desired location for weddings. If you’re considering having your wedding in this sought-after region, then take full advantage of the breathtaking scenery on offer by hosting your wedding outside under an open-sided stretch tent. Here are five hidden gem wedding venues that are built around this premise.

The lakeside lawns are surrounded by magnificent specimen trees so it is an ideal place for a stretch tent wedding, as long as you don’t mind sharing the day with the numerous cranes and peafowl that abide there!
This farmhouse is a charming, timber-framed Grade I listed Tudor mansion. The building was constructed in 1491, now half a millennium later the house hosts up to ten weddings a year on its grounds. It is encircled by over 200 acres of stunning fields and gardens, providing the perfect backdrop for a Surrey-style stretch tent wedding.
