A Brief History of Burrows Lea Country House

Bought in 1946 by Harry Edwards to house his growing family and his increasingly popular healing practice he soon established the House as the Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary. Harry Edward's fame spread and at the peak it has been said that he would receive 10,000 letters a week asking for help. The proceedings from the Burrows Lea Country House activities, such as weddings, which are limited in number per year, all go towards supporting the Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary which is a registered charity.

Burrows Lea Country House Surrey wedding photographer opportunities

Burrows Lee has its own chapel (with a capacity of around 100 guests) which is attached to the main house and is a large, low ceilinged room, complete with wooden parquet flooring, simple wooden chairs and a white ceiling and walls. For a wedding photographer natural light at the end of the chapel where the marriage ceremony is conducted may need a little help on darker days so fill in bounced flash is an option.

The Bride will usually get ready in one of the rooms on the first floor after which she is escorted down the large wooden staircase on her way to the chapel, which provides opportunities for some lovely atmospheric pictures. After the wedding ceremony on leaving the chapel when the weather is good, doors open out onto a grass square in front of the marquee and guests are usually led there for the throwing of confetti.

For the family group wedding photos there are plenty of suitable areas surrounding the marquee including a beautiful garden with a bridge and water feature plus wisteria covered building walls whilst for the popular everyone group shot the obvious vantage point is the iron fire escape staircase. In case of bad weather then the tables in the dining room can be moved around the fireplace which provides a neutral and pleasant backdrop aided by plenty of natural light.

Whilst the wedding breakfast and reception can take place in the house for smaller groups, for larger wedding parties the centre of all the activity is the substantial marquee which can seat up to 150 guests and has access points along the back walls and also from the bar to the lawn area for outside party games and the like.

The star of the show, however, for both the Bride and Groom and their wedding photographers are the colourful gardens, the lovely woods and nature trails and of the course the beautiful and romantic Cherry Tree Walk with its stunning views in summer of a patchwork of greens punctuated by bright sections of dazzling yellow from the beautiful Surrey Hills.

All in all this is a fine wedding venue in the green and leafy Surrey countryside, especially if the weather is fine as all the guests can spill out and explore the tranquil and calming environment. In fact this lovely sense of calm is felt from the first moment of leaving the tree enclosed car park through to the welcoming reception area and beyond and throughout. The staff, needless to say help create this tranquil and very welcoming environment.

"Dear Richard and Tina, we would like to say a huge thank you to you for the fantastic photos of our wedding. ...as well as your professionalism you made us feel at ease on both the big day and our pre wedding shoot.
 
It was really lovely to have two photographers on our big day as we were able to capture moments that often get missed...
 
You blended in on the day and we didn't feel you were ever 'in the way' or pushy towards the guests ... we couldn't be happier."
