Great Fosters is a beautiful wedding venue in Surrey.

Our first visit to the hotel was many years ago. Carol was still Art Director of Wedding & Home magazine and Paul was hired for a fashion shoot for the magazine at the hotel. We both remember the resulting pictures were beautiful – stunning redhead models in richly embroidered wedding dresses, that fitted perfectly with the historic Tudor backdrops of the rooms and walkways at Great Fosters.

Years later it was great to be booked to shoot a wedding at the hotel and we’ve been lucky enough to photograph quite a few more at Great Fosters over the last nine years. The light is so beautiful in the old wood panelled suites, and the banqueting hall really has the wow factor when it’s lit with fairy lights at night.

History of Great Fosters Hotel

The original manor house dates from around 1550 AD. It is sighted on what was once known as the Manor of Imworth and the moat, that surrounded that Manor was built around 500 AD and parts of the moat still surround the beautiful gardens. Sir Harold Sutcliffe bought the house in 1930 and restored it to become a luxury hotel. In 1931 the Elizabethan Tithe Barn was re-erected at Great Fosters, having been moved from its original site at Ewell Manor.  In the same year, Queen Mary visited Great Fosters and also attended the Ascot Ball along with the then Prince of Wales and  the Duke and Duchess of York. The Hotel was acquired from the Sutcliffe family in 2018 and is now owned by the Alexander Hotels, who also own the beautiful Langshott Manor & Barnett Hill (two of our favourite hotels to shoot weddings at). Plus Alexander House in West Sussex and Rowhill Grange in Kent.
