If you're scouring Surrey for that wedding venue with a story, Brooklands Museum in Weybridge may be perfect for you. It boasts some of the most complex and extravagant motoring and aviation history in England, in a tasteful Art Deco-inspired theme. The hospitality areas, which offer each wedding party exclusive use, each reflect some of the impressive Brooklands story, and although they are housed separately from the main museum, guests are nonetheless invited to enjoy exhibitions.

For an alternative ceremony, exchange vows and rings aboard Concorde, and then enjoy your post-ceremony drinks beneath the wings of the majestic jet. Or opt to host both ceremony and reception in one of the themed areas; maybe you would like to celebrate in the very room where Bluebird was designed, or against the fantastic backdrop of a giant Vickers Vimy aircraft.

History

The racetrack was laid out in 1907 by Hugh Locke King as the world's first purpose-built circuit, but it rapidly became one of England's most significant technological centres. Throughout the '20s and '30s many motoring records were broken at the venue, regarded as extremely prestigious in motoring culture.

It was also very important in the aviation world. A.V. Roe first performed flight trials there in 1908, Tommy Sopwith flew his Pup and Camel, and Hawker Aircraft and Vickers-Armstrong used the venue to develop models during and after WWII. The manufacture of Concorde was latterly assisted at Brooklands.

The outbreak of WWII saw the end of racing at the venue, but it remained an aviation development centre until 1987, almost 50 years on. Since then it has stood as a museum, where notable motoring and aviation achievements have all been celebrated.

  • Lesley and Nigel - 12/12/2016

    Thank you to the team and EVERYONE behind the scenes who worked so hard to make our wedding day so fabulous. Thank you sooooo much. Our extra-special love and appreciation to the both of you (Jo and Jenny) for your ongoing support, friendliness and fun - you're both an absolute pleasure to work with. The care, attention and long hours you both put into our event, as well as the obvious enthusiasm for what you do, meant that we never doubted this day would be a success. Please feel very proud that on Saturday our guests were all saying this was the best wedding they'd ever been to.

  • Tess and Matt -12/10/2016

    We wanted to write and say a heartfelt thank you to you and your team for all the hard work and efforts made with our wedding on Friday 7th October. We were just blown away with everything! We had the most amazing wedding and have so many delightful and happy memories from it! The dedication and professionalism we experienced right from the start has been second to none. Your team are just brilliant - happy, polite, helpful and smiling. Lots of our guests complimented us on our venue choice and we just replied by saying we knew Brooklands was the only place on Earth we wanted to get married at - it felt like the right fit, right from the start. The care and attention you gave my Dad was just lovely to witness and he's since told us that he felt very well looked after, so thank you for taking care of his needs so discreetly and so kindly. We will both cherish the memories of our special day for the rest of our lives - thank you all so very much.

    On behalf of my husband and I, a massive thank you to the team at Brooklands Museum for helping us have the most amazing day we could have asked for. The venue is a great place to have a wedding, lots for the guests to do, and loads of great places to have photos taken. The team were amazing and everything went perfectly due to their professionalism. We would definitely book another event here.
