wedding on Fri, 31st of May, 2024
My husband and I just got married at Chilworth Manor on 31 May 2024, and we had the most amazing time ever! Hannah, Millie, and the team really could not have done more. They really did make sure all of my guests were catered for and ensured all stress was kept away from us on our special day!

Especially when our events company did not live up to expectations, the staff worked tirelessly to ensure our day was not impacted.
When planning the wedding, we did have some issues; however, we discussed this with them prior to the event, and all our concerns were addressed promptly.
The location is absolutely stunning, and the building itself has been modernised but still has some attributes that some people may call “dated” It’s an old manor, and the character needs to be kept to some degree!
The food was amazing, and the bar and breakfast staff were outstanding. The Greek barman was so friendly and made sure my husband and I were always having the most amazing time.
The rooms are clean and spacious, and the beds are so comfortable. My father was placed in a duplex room, which I wish I had both nights I stayed.
If you are looking for a getaway or planning a wedding, then I strongly recommend this venue. Hannah and the events team really will give you the best day you could hope for…just sorry it’s all over!
Well done, Chilworth team!

Our wedding reception at Chilworth Manor was exceptional. Throughout the planning process, our co-ordinator, Hannah was always reachable which was immensely reassuring. Hannah's thorough communication and accommodation of our every request ensured the day ran smoothly, and our face-to-face meetings

as the big day approached proved that no detail would be forgotten.

On the day, our toastmaster George, the catering staff, and everyone else involved went above and beyond for ourselves and our guests. Having our September wedding on the hottest day of the year was one thing we couldn't have planned for, but the attentiveness of the staff made all the difference, keeping the arrival drinks cold and opening an extra air-conditioned space for our guests to cool down just beside the terrace. George made us feel special throughout the day and enthusiastically helped us include a game and a song performance during the wedding breakfast. An older family member of ours was unable to attend until the evening due to the hot weather, but upon our request his three course meal was served hot when he arrived, which we cannot praise the catering staff enough for.

Overall, throughout our entire experience with Chilworth, nothing was too much trouble. Along with the beautiful setting it provided for our wedding day, this made it the perfect venue choice for our reception.

We had Phoebe, the wedding coordinator look after us from the time we were thinking of what date to go with and she had been so patient and kind with all our requests. She is a wonderfully kind and hardworking coordinator we were lucky to have. Chilworth are very accommodating with certain requests

and made us feel special on our wedding day. Even when we had questions and concerns about things on the day, they promptly sorted them and allowed us more time despite not being completely on schedule.

Chilworth Manor was the first venue we viewed and from the moment Phoebe gave us a tour of the grounds, we knew we wanted our special day to be within those beautiful grounds. Phoebe became our personal wedding planner and has answered all of our questions, offered advice when we have needed it and

helped to perfect the plan for our ceremony and celebration. She has gone out of her way to change things to suit our guests special requests.

We met George 3 days before the wedding and immediately felt that the event was in very safe hands with our host. He made sure we were exactly where we needed to be and when. He even took control of the ceremony music for us. George interacted with our guests and had everyone laughing, cheering and applauding, he was fantastic and it would not have been the same without him, what a character!

Our wedding breakfast was a real talking point. The food was even more delicious than it was at our tasting session. The portion sizes were very generous and everyone was happy. The kitchen, waiting and bar staff all did an amazing job and everything ran like clockwork.

We were extremely lucky to have a gorgeous sunny day so we were able to use the outstandingly beautiful grounds for some amazing photographs, which we will treasure forever. Luckily we live fairly close by and we can visit the grounds whenever we like. We will be sure to make the most of these opportunities and will definitely recommend Chilworth Manor as a wedding venue.

Your beautiful hotel will forever hold a special place in all our hearts.
Thank you for making our day perfect and stress free.

When we were planning our wedding and looking venues, Chilworth Manor was a lucky find as neither of us even knew it existed. When we looked through the images online of the venue we fell in love with the Coach House as the decor was absolutely

stunning and we knew we had to have it.

The planning process was managed by Evie and she was absolutely amazing with ensuring we had what we wanted and was thorough when arranging our requirements. The communication was fantastic and it was reassuring to know we could email her whenever we had any queries.

When the big day came, everything was well managed and run smoothly. George was lovely and no ask was too much for him to fulfil. The only negative I can add about our day was that it went way too fast! If I could rewind time I would do it all again as it was an absolutely amazing day and I thank those on the wedding team at Chilworth for that. Our day was so much more than we could have ever imagined and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves too which is an added bonus.

We want to give you a massive thank you, we couldn't have asked for a better day!
