“Once in a while, in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.”
And, we promise, there’s nothing ordinary about our September Wedding Venue of the Month.
Introducing the spectacular and utterly dreamy Chewton Glen…
With its charming atmosphere and quintessentially English exterior, it’s easy to see why wedding couples and jet-setters alike are enamored with Chewton Glen. Crowned Best UK Holiday Hotel 2016 in the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards, the wildflower gardens, airy Georgian windows, trademark red-bricked exterior and pretty as a picture plantation style shutters gives this five-star Hampshire country house a larger-than-life character.
Ideally located less than two hours from the hustle and bustle of London, set on 130 acres of sprawling countryside and only a short stroll from the beach, Chewton Glen is a wedding venue both you and your guests can enjoy throughout your celebrations.
The hotel is proud to introduce their new Wedding Planner, Collette Bridgewater. Bursting with excitement and enthusiasm, Collette will be delighted to help plan your big day at Chewton Glen, including advising on accommodation for your nearest and dearest and all those finer details. After initially beginning her career with a 15 month work placement at Chewton Glen, Collette honed her event management skills at a privately-owned UK hotel group before returning to where it all began to undertake her dream role. Plus, she’s professionally trained in bridal make up with Benefit Cosmetics – a real asset to have present on the most special day of your life!
The sky really is the limit at Chewton Glen, you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing the perfect space to match your personality. An Al Fresco ceremony in the walled garden is simply magical during the summer months while The Summer House is the perfect spot to toast your new marriage while overlooking stunning views of the grounds.
If you are opting for a traditional day full of romance to match this true English original, The Lake Suite is equally breath-taking and beautiful. Full length french doors flood the room with natural light and a spacious terrace opens out on to the gardens – Swoon!
But, the biggest surprise Chewton Glen has to offer will get you really excited! Hidden among the tranquil wooded area, just a short stroll from the main house, lie the Treehouses.
No two rooms at Chewton Glen are the same, but the Treehouse Suites have that show-stopping WOW factor – you will be talking about your stay for years to come! Suspended 35 ft above ground, these hideaways boast forest views from a tree canopy and outdoor hot tub on the deck. What a way to celebrate your new life together as a happily married couple! Follow up with some pampering treatments in the glorious spa, and you are pretty much in heaven!
