Maria and Robert had their wedding at Nonsuch Mansion at Cheam in Surrey, which does sound like an odd sort of name the first time you come across it, although it is close to the site of Nonsuch Palace, built by Henry VIII and long since demolished. Interesting though this fact is, it doesn't shed much light on the origin of the name and if anyone is in a position to enlighten me I would be most grateful.
Maria is from Sweden and a lot of her family had made it over for the wedding and were busy helping her get ready in the bridal suite at Nonsuch Mansion.
Maria was incredibly relaxed during the bridal preparations and great fun to be with. Her hair and makeup were done by Diane Cundell who provides mobile hair and beauty services in Sussex and Surrey. You can visit Diane's website at:
Nonsuch Mansion is one of the best wedding venues I have come across, the way it has been decorated is stunning and the service and catering are second to none. It's one of the few venues that you really would struggle to fault - even the wallpaper in the gents is outstanding!

And if you have anything like reasonable weather, there are extensive grounds to have your wedding photographs taken in.
Maria and Robert had a wonderful wedding, with fantastic weather at an amazing venue - it couldn't be better!
If you are getting married in Surrey then Nonsuch Mansion is a venue that should be high on your list, I'm back there for a wedding in a few weeks time and I can't wait. You can find out more about weddings at Nonsuch Mansion on their website:
