A personal and bespoke Wedding Experience
Planning a wedding can be a daunting prospect, but at The Rayleigh Club we make it a pleasurable experience, working with you every step of the way to create a truly bespoke celebration that exceeds your hopes and expectations.
Our dedicated wedding planners will deliver a smooth and seamless experience from your initial enquiry right up until the big day. Our approach is always personal, bespoke and flexible, allowing you to design the wedding of your dreams. We can provide as much or as little support as you need, but we will be attentive to every detail, making it a day to remember and treasure.
Nestled in over three hundred acres of stunning English parkland, The Rayleigh Club has earned an enviable reputation as one of the finest wedding venues in the South East.
Bespoke Ceremony & Reception Design
With four reception suites to choose from, we can accommodate a small and intimate gathering as well as a large and lavish party. The rooms provide an elegant and neutral backdrop for you to personalise with traditional or contemporary colour and style, and each one is equipped with a bar and entertainment facilities.
We take great pride in the quality of our food, our extensive selection of wines and our exceptional standards of service. We can host a delicious three-course dinner or an informal buffet and our Head Chef, Ryan Adams, will be happy to provide advice and guidance with menu and wine selections if required.
We are delighted to be able to arrange Twilight Weddings at The Rayleigh Club. A magical evening ceremony at 6pm in The Ruby Room can be followed by a romantic candlelit reception. There is access to a private terrace from The Willow Room where you and your guests can enjoy a celebratory drink under the stars.
The Ruby Room
If you’re looking for a tranquil and intimate setting in which to exchange your vows, the Ruby Room is the perfect place. With an abundance of natural light by day and spectacular views of the countryside, this suite presents a calm and serene ambience for small gatherings. The Ruby Room is suitable for up to 120 guests for a seated ceremony and 70 for a sit-down dinner.
The Crystal Hall
Our largest reception room offers a warm welcome, and will comfortably accommodate 200 seated guests or 400 standing. Elegant and luxurious décor is complemented by a hardwood dance floor, a discreet stage, lighting and a sound system for perfect entertainment. The Crystal Hall has its own kitchen, dedicated staff and a generous bar to ensure that even the largest party enjoys exceptional service.
The Willow Room
Large double doors in this room lead to an exclusive terrace area looking out to a graceful willow tree beside a small lake. Beyond that, the stunning countryside provides a spectacular backdrop for beautiful photographs. The Willow Room is perfect for intimate receptions and can seat up to 80 guests or accommodate up to 120 for a buffet style dinner.
At the heart of The Rayleigh Club, The Lounge provides an intimate setting for up to 70 seated guests or 120 for a buffet. French doors allow natural light to flood in, and give access to a spacious terrace with beautiful, parkland views. There is a large bar in The Lounge and this room can be combined with the adjacent Willow Room for additional dining space if required.
