History of Surrey Wedding Venue - Ramster Hall

17 May 2013

Today Ramster Hall is a renowned wedding venue in surrey, and what makes it so special is its unique charm from the amount of history that it holds.

In the early 17th century a wealthy glass maker built the oldest part of the house which was constructed as a central chimney house. The glass making industry declined and it was turned into a farm. The Long hall was then built in 1604 and used as a barn. Today the Long Hall is the perfect location for a wedding breakfast complete with an impressive inglenook fireplace.

The farmhouse was then converted into an Edwardian country house by Sir Harry Waechter in 1900. He then went on to build the Great Drawing Room where civil wedding ceremonies now take place, and the Brick Hall which is now used as an alternative entrance to the wedding ceremony room. He also laid the foundations for our now notorious gardens.

The gardens were then greatly added to by new owners Sir Henry and Lady Norman in 1922, introducing many of the rhododendrons and azaleas which the gardens are now famous for.

In 2005 Ramster Hall was passed to the current owners, Malcom and Rosie Glaister from Rosie’s parents Paul and Miranda Gunn.
