A brief history of Sutton Register Office Russettings

The development of large houses for the upper middle-classes started in the Sutton area in the 1860's and Russettings which was built for a Mr George Smith, a well to do confectioner and baker, in 1899 is a fine example and one of only a few remaining as most have been demolished to make way for small houses and flats. Interestingly, his wife was the sister of Thomas Wall, famous for producing the now famous sausages and ice-cream and the house was later used in the 1930's as a base to run the Thomas Wall trust.
During World War ll the house was used by an engineering and design company and then finally Surrey County Council bought it in 1948 for £6000 and used it as a careers office as well as for registrations from around 1953. In 1965 the London Borough of Sutton was formed and the building then became the Register Office for the area it being later refurbished in 1994.

Sutton Register Office Russettings Surrey wedding photography opportunities

The original features of the building have been well preserved from the turquoise floor tiles in the front porch through to the rich entrance hall complete with its grand oak staircase with barley-stick balusters and the deep ingle fireplace.


The hall leads first to The Drawing Room which is now the main Ceremony Room and this can accommodate up to 45 guests. With the wedding ceremony taking place in a deep panelled bay and with wedding photographers positioning themselves within the bay the main source of natural light comes in from only the front window so on darker days fill in flash may be required to adequately capture the proceedings. Another window and door on the other side provide access to the gardens.


There is another room adjacent which is also used for more intimate wedding ceremonies allowing up to just eight guests and this room benefits from plenty of natural light as it looks out on to the gardens at the back.


The path that leads from the Drawing Room is ideal for the confetti throwing wedding photographs and the group wedding pictures can take place in a number of areas in the garden all of which offer a pleasant and tranquil backdrop. Indeed the garden is a beautiful piece of green and pleasant space with many trees and mature colourful plants, an ornate metal seat for posing the Bride and Groom for some intimate and romantic marriage photos as well as some wisteria growing up the wall beside the office entrance.


The parking in the front driveway of Sutton Register Office is limited to only 5-6 cars but meter parking is available outside in Worcester Road and for guests traveling by train,  Sutton train station is just 10 minutes away. All in all a very pleasant Surrey wedding venue with welcoming and help full staff.
