wedding on Sat, 9th of September, 2023
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

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.

Wedding of Kayleigh Eldridge & Stuart Parry

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

Read More

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!

and couldn’t have gone any better! The food throughout the day tasted absolutely amazing, and was coordinated so well to ensure there wasn’t a rush but had so much on offer!

George absolutely smashed the day, He was so polite, professional and energetic, it really made the day so much more relaxing and fun! From start to finish Hannah's planning was impeccable, she really listened to everything we wanted and took our vision and created it exactly how we imagined. Her communication throughout was amazing, it made planning a wedding so easy!

Every single member of staff we encountered were smiley and helpful, the Bar staff were so friendly and there never seemed to be a queue due to how quickly they worked! I am so glad we choose Chilworth Manor as our venue. It was the perfect day, matched with the perfect team.

We are incredibly grateful for every single person who helped make our day so special.

We had our perfect wedding day at Chilworth Manor!

We went to look at the venue in February 2022 and were amazed at how the photographs online didn’t do it justice! The updated reception, bar area & restaurant really had the WOW factor! In the Spring and Summer, the driveway leading up the

manor looks pretty spectacular too! And the grounds! That’s what we truly fell in love with!

Throughout our wedding planning process, communication with the events team and our wedding planner Phoebe was so easy! They were always on hand and really quick at getting back to us whenever we had any questions or worries! Nothing was ever too much trouble!! In the lead up to the day, we felt extremely reassured and were in constant communication with the hotel! We had final details and handover meetings with our wedding planner and the team and we really felt our day was in safe hands!

On the day… it couldn’t have been smoother! Both myself and the groom got ready in the hotel as did many of our friends and family and everything was brilliant! There wasn’t a single fault with the entire day! All of our guests said about how well the day flowed! Alex was in constant contact with us throughout - making sure we knew everything that was happening & we were kept informed at every stage! Anything we asked for was done straight away! And the food was even better than when we went for our menu tasting!

There were so many special touches I could go on forever! But we can’t recommend Chilworth Manor enough and they pulled out all the stops for the best day of our lives! Thank you so much!! From the new Mr & Mrs Rowles x

We got married at Chilworth Manor in July 2023. From day one the experience was amazing, and it was a no brainier which venue we wanted to choose for our special day. We met with one of the wedding coordinators Phoebe, who talked us through the various packages, which were reasonably priced, and we

The day went by perfectly, with the help of George, the event manager and Alex, the operations manager. The staff went above and beyond to make our day very special. Those little extra touches really made for a memorable day. Really happy with our experience and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

She was very organised and helped us to think about things we hadn't yet considered. When I had questions she

always got back to me quickly. A few days before, we had a handover meeting with Phoebe and Emily, who was part of the team running things on the day. From ours and our guests perspective everything went smoothly on the day and the team working were friendly and professional. We were very lucky to have a warm sunny day and the grounds of the hotel were amazing for our drinks reception and photographs. The Wedding Breakfast was complimented by many and we very much enjoyed our menu tasting earlier this year. I would thoroughly recommend Chilworth Manor for your special day, a big thank you to the whole team.

We had an absolutely incredible experience having our wedding at Chilworth Manor! We chose it in part because of the grounds and they did not disappoint- our photos were beautiful and it gave us somewhere lovely to escape to for half an hour on the day. The food was fantastic, and the attention to

detail by all the staff and the efforts they went to for accommodating everything. Shout out to Hannah, who helped us organise the event, and was absolutely brilliant, she was so responsive and accommodating and I really felt that she went out of her way to help us have the day we wanted. Things went so smoothly on the day as well- Alex, who was looking after us during the day, ran things incredibly smooth and always seemed to appear right when we needed him! We also cannot neglect to mention Kevin and Dom, who helped tremendously and were so enthusiastic- they even stayed late just so they could film part of the celebration, and we really felt like they were invested in the event and in having a good time with us.
We can't recommend Chilworth enough, a lot of our friends have had a lot of stress trying to get things organised but we honestly can't say that the guys at Chilworth didn't do everything we needed them to do. They were so professional and even had suggestions and advice for things we hadn't thought of yet, they were great. 100% recommended and we can't wait to go back to celebrate our first anniversary!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of hosting our wedding at Chilworth Manor, and we couldn't be happier with our experience. From start to finish, the team at Chilworth Manor went above and beyond to make our special day absolutely perfect.
First and foremost, the venue itself is stunning.

Read More

The manor is surrounded by picturesque gardens and offers a beautiful backdrop for both the ceremony and reception. The attention to detail was evident throughout the entire venue, and it truly exceeded our expectations.

The staff at Chilworth Manor were exceptional. From our first meeting with the event coordinators to the final moments of our wedding day, they were attentive, professional, and accommodating. They took the time to understand our vision and supported us in bringing it to life. The level of organisation and efficiency displayed by the staff was remarkable, ensuring that everything ran smoothly and seamlessly.
The culinary experience at Chilworth Manor was nothing short of outstanding, the food was absolutely delicious, and our guests raved about the quality and presentation. Our guests dietary requirements and requests were taken into account, and the vegetarian options were just as impressive as the rest of the menu.

The level of service provided by the Chilworth Manor team was nothing short of remarkable. Every staff member we encountered was friendly, polite, and attentive. They ensured that our guests felt welcomed and comfortable throughout the day, as well as checking in on my wife and I through the course of the day, to make sure we were happy.

Overall, our wedding at Chilworth Manor was an unforgettable experience. The combination of the stunning venue, professional, and attentive team of event staff, and beautiful food, created a truly magical day for us and our guests. We would highly recommend Chilworth Manor to any couple looking for a dream wedding venue. It is a place where memories are made, and we will cherish those memories for a lifetime.

get back to me in a quick manner. Alex and everyone on the day really made me feel relaxed and calm and didn't bother me with anything and that really helped us to enjoy our day. The hand over before the day meant that this could happen and they helped me think of things I would not have thought of previously. They also left us champagne and rose petals on the evening when we went back to our room which was a really lovely special touch. They communicated with all the retailers we used.
The food was absolutely delicious and they were really flexible with us so that all needs were met and we could have what we wanted to eat.

Chilworth Manor staff made our day so easy and stress free and I cannot thank them enough. The venue is absolutely beautiful and it is incredibly affordable. Cannot recommend them enough.

I recently had the pleasure of holding our wedding at Chilworth Manor Hotel, and I must say that it exceeded my expectations in many ways. Located in a picturesque area, just outside of Southampton, Chilworth Manor Hotel offers a beautiful setting for a wedding celebration.

The venue itself is

Read More

stunning, with its grand architecture and well-manicured gardens. The moment I arrived, I was struck by the elegance and charm of the place. The interior of the hotel is equally impressive

One of the standout aspects of Chilworth Manor Hotel is the exceptional service provided by the staff to name a few, Hannah, Kevin aka Steve, Evie, Keegan and Harry. Special mention to Claire and Alex for overseeing our day and ensuring everything went perfectly. From the initial planning stages to the actual day of the wedding, the staff members were attentive, friendly, and went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran smoothly.

The wedding ceremony was held in the GK Chesterton and reception was held in the beautiful Coach House . The space was elegantly decorated. The staff did an excellent job of setting up the room according to our preferences, and they took care of all the little touches that made the atmosphere feel warm and inviting.

The catering at Chilworth Manor Hotel was outstanding. The food served during the wedding reception was absolutely delicious. The menu had a variety of options to suit different tastes, and the quality of the ingredients was top-notch. Especially for food intolerances and allergies. The waiting staff were attentive and professional, ensuring all guests were well taken care of.

Overall, Chilworth Manor Hotel proved to be an exceptional wedding venue. Stunning location, attentive staff, elegant atmosphere, delicious food, and comfortable accommodation make it a fantastic choice for couples looking to celebrate their special day. I would highly recommend Chilworth Manor Hotel to anyone in search of a memorable and enchanting wedding experience.

Also....Juan!! Simply brilliant. Such a lovely man and he handled the day brilliantly. Couldn't thank him enough.

We did leave a big bit of cake for the staff so hopefully everyone got a bit.

Please pass on our thanks to all who were involved!

Finally, we want to thank you Jo for everything from the start. You have been so helpful and nothing has been too much trouble. You made organising the wedding so much easier. Thank you so much.

Read More

just as we would want and our wedding coordinator Hannah made this incredibly easy for us. She was fantastic through the whole planning and all the way up to the finishing of the wedding, she made sure that any questions we had would be answered and if we had any requests she did everything she could to make sure these were catered for and for that we could not be any happier with her attitude towards everything and her professional presence. As well as Hannah being fantastic so were the rest of the team in the hotel, we were fully catered for and were extremely pleased with the positive attitude everyone had. Our wedding day went perfectly with everything running smoothly thanks to the hotel staff, the food was absolutely delicious and we have made it clear we will definitely be back again for more meals because of this. We had been detailed a man from the venue called Juan as our master of ceremonies who done a fantastic job, we were also told he spent 2 days learning how to pronounce our last name just to make sure he got it spot on for the day and let me say he did absolutely brilliantly. Once again I would just like to thank everyone at the Chilworth Manor for making our day absolutely perfect in every way, I highly recommend anyone who is thinking of doing their big day at the Chilworth Manor to go and speak to the team and let them show you just how amazing the place would be and I assure you that you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you all from Mr and Mrs Moir

I would highly recommend Chilworth Manor and their staff for anyone planning their special day! It was a beautiful, stress free experience.

Highly recommend Chilworth Manor for weddings. Chilworth Manor was my 3rd venue we visited and we just knew as soon as I drove down the stunning driveway & saw the building & grounds that is where we wanted our special day. Thank you again.

Our Wedding Day took place on 15th July this year and it was such a magical experience from start to finish. The weather was perfect, and the staff took care of our every need, from decorating the Coach House and the Lord Selbourne suite beautifully to the Hog Roast and BBQ and evening reception.

We cannot thank you all enough.

Jo Bennett, Marius, Juan and Kitty you are the best and would highly recommend The Chilworth Manor for a special occasion or a weekend break.

We will be back for our first Anniversary.
Many thanks

representative to help prepare and plan for the big day. From day 1, Hannah has not only been an outstanding liaison between us and the venue, but she frequently went above and beyond to ensure all of our needs were met (there were a lot of needs). My Husband and I live in Montana, USA, and had to plan everything over phone and email. Hannah was always quick to reply and was extremely flexible considering the diverse time zones.
The venue was absolutely stunning and although I grew up and lived just around the corner, I couldn't have imagined a better place for a wedding. There were plenty of chances to go through details the day before with the team at the venue and everything was planned so we knew exactly what was happening and when. The food was delicious and our guests commented on how well fed they were. We also had many guests that had food preferences and allergies which were all catered for due to the mass amounts of planning and communication from the venue staff. The grounds were also perfect for photos. The service and organisation on the day meant that the whole day ran smoothly and stress free which was a relief for me, the groom and my parents. This meant we could enjoy the day much more than we thought. The venue was also perfect for our guests that had travelled from different countries, as they were all able to stay the night and get a much needed breakfast the next day. The rooms did get a little too hot at night but the wedding was lucky enough to coincide with a heatwave. The evening entertainment gave enough time for everyone to let loose. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding, the staff do everything they can to make your day perfect!

On the day of the wedding Clare & the coordinator Juan and his team looked after us. They were fantastic! Everything was perfect to the way we requested, from the setting of the venue to the rundown of the day, everything went smoothly. The food was really good too, especially the portion size.
We can not thank them enough for making our day go by so well. Everyone on the team that day was polite and professional, we did not receive any negative feedbacks from our guest only positive ones.
The venue itself was beautiful, definitely a place of scenery to take perfect pictures. Thank you to all the staff at Chilworth Manor, we would surely recommend this venue.

From the first time we visited Chilworth Manor we knew it was the venue for us, the relaxed and professional approach immediately put us at ease when making such a big decision as to where we would celebrate the best day of our lives.

From her warm welcome, Hannah made us feel from the first

Read More

moment that all she wanted was for us to have a wonderful wedding. She listened to our brief and delivered everything we wished for. She was clear in her communication, helpful with our decision-making, and listened to every small detail we wished for. Without fail, every guest mentioned how beautiful the venue was and how great all the staff were on the day, and we can only agree with them.

On arrival, the sun shining meant we were able to have our welcome drinks on the terrace and gave our guests a chance to see more of the beautiful grounds which really made our day.

Vincent was our wedding coordinator on the day, he was very professional and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day which we are very thankful for.

The coach house decorations were through Luminique Events recommended by the hotel. They did a stunning job, and I would recommend using them when getting married at Chilworth.

The food was spot on. The canapes, wedding breakfast and evening hog roast were the best. All the food was served quickly and on time throughout the day and evening. So, we would like to send a big thank you to the chefs and all the waiters. You were brilliant. They covered all dietary requirements, we had some more complicated requirements, but nothing was much bother, the chefs covered everything.

Mrs Bouquet, run by Micah Marshall, did our wonderful flower arrangements in the coach house. She did an amazing job. She is a local supplier and recommended by Chilworth hotel.

We also booked a surprise singing show with Sing out Waitresses and Waiters who pretended to be part of the Chilworth Hotel staff by dressing up as the waiters. Chilworth Manor was happy to accommodate this and provide

availability on the day we wanted. Communicating with Hannah in the run-up to the day and getting everything planned was simple and easy and so stress-free. Everything we wanted was in place ready for the day and we were able to go into the room early that morning to set up which was helpful to make the day run as smooth as possible.

The reception itself was amazing, it was a simple sit down lunch but the food was lovely and the staff were so attentive and friendly. We cannot sing their praises enough. They made sure we had drinks when we needed them, the food was served when we wanted and it was all hot and tasty. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and we got some lovely photos in the gardens. No one wants to talk about price but for a simple sit down lunch to celebrate a special event, Chilworth Manor is really good value for money. Unlike many other hotels that we contacted, Chilworth Manor had no charge for the hire of the room. We just selected which menu and any added extras we wanted. It was a beautiful stress-free day which we absolutely loved. We cannot thank everyone enough for making our day so special.

Many thanks

James and I had our taste menu a few months before our wedding and it felt so special. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves, the food was spot on and it didn’t taste any different on the day. We met with Jo a few days before the wedding to have a final run-through, which took some weight off our shoulders.

On the day of the wedding, we had a man called Marius who looked after us all day, he was very professional and well mannered. He did a fantastic job. All in all, we would recommend Chilworth manor and we would also like to thank the Chilworth Manor staff.

We are now so excited to get all our photos back as we are really pleased that we will have such a variety of photo locations! So all's well that ends well, even with the rain!
We had countless guests comment on how delicious the food was, and how generous the portion sizes were too! Favourites were the arancini canapes and the sticky toffee pudding dessert!
The whole day went so seamlessly, and that is all down to the professionalism of your team.

I have attached the sample photos that we have received back from our photographer. You are welcome to use any you'd like.

shining and being able to have our arrival drinks on the terrace really made our day and gave our guests a chance to see more of the beautiful grounds. The Coach House was decorated exactly as we’d planned and it looked wonderful. We had many lovely comments from guests about the venue. Marius did an exemplary job of managing our day for which we are very thankful for. He is great asset to Chilworth! We only have positive things to say about our Wedding at Chilworth but if we could give any feedback for improvement it would be that perhaps when the guest arrived they could be pointed in the direction of the terrace, our guests started ordering at the bar without knowledge there were already drinks laid out on the terrace, and the timing of the Wedding breakfast, it ended up taking longer than envisaged so our evening guests had already started arriving before we’d finished. We appreciate there can be delays and this in no way had a negative impact on the day, it just delayed the party starting!

We are so pleased that we chose to have our Wedding at Chilworth, it was everything we wanted and more! We look forward to visiting again.
Kind regards

Josh was the coordinator on our wedding day. He was so friendly and professional and ensured the day ran smoothly.

The waiting staff particularly Joseph and Lucifer were brilliant. All the food was served quickly and at good intervals throughout the day and evening. They were all happy to help throughout the day with any requests.

The food was so good. The canapes, wedding breakfast and evening buffet were all great quality and the sticky toffee pudding was amazing. Mass catering for events can make it hard to establish good quality food but that is definitely not the case with the chefs at Chilworth!

The coach house decorations were through Luminique Events recommended by the hotel. They were beautiful and I would highly recommend using them when getting married at Chilworth.

The DJ-Jeff was also booked through Chilworth and did not disappoint. He made sure everyone was up and dancing throughout the night.

Finally, I would like to thank Josh (again), Johanna, Claudio and Claire who looked after my father when he became very unwell in the evening. They were supportive and very caring during and after the paramedics arrived. Nigel the manager was very sympathetic in the morning and wanted an update on my father's condition. He was very generous ensuring that my mum and I were cared for. My Dad has made a full recovery!

I would highly recommend getting married at Chilworth Manor. It is an amazing place to get married in regards to the beauty of the house and the wonderful staff.

Thank you again

And Our Wedding Day was just perfect from start to finish, not one thing went wrong and that’s all because of the staff at Chilworth! They went above and beyond for us to ensure our day was perfect! Nothing was too much trouble! I had 3 members of staff looking for scissors right before my ceremony because I had ripped my dress on the way down lol, and they all rushed looking for some.

It was like a true fairly tail, the grounds were perfect, the rooms were outstanding, all our guest couldn’t believe how beautiful it all was! Everyone complemented the food, we had a lot of comments of “the food was amazing, and there was loads of it too!” Everyone was just enjoying themselves which is what we wanted especially after the few years we have all had.

I can assure you we all had some sore heads in the morning but was definitely worth it for the day/night we had it was a day to never be forgotten…So thank you we will treasure it forever!

So lastly thank you so much to Hannah for giving us our dream wedding. We are so grateful for your service and all your help over the last 3 years :) and another thank you to Marius who was very helpful and did an amazing job as our toast master, and collecting our cake for us the next morning as it was absolutely huge :) xxx

We’d like to just point a certain staff member out, I’m not sure if he’s a waiter or an events organiser but if I remember correctly his name is Lucifer, a young lad.
Well, he was absolutely amazing from start to finish Jo, he made sure everything was how we wanted it from the music to the speeches to the evening, he made sure every last detail was perfect, he was always around when we needed something, he was quick and officiant, friendly and went out of his way to stay until the end to make sure everything ended well. He was absolutely brilliant and a massive asset to Chilworth. His manager should be extremely proud of his commitment to his work because he was outstanding.

We are extremely thankful to you Jo, without you saving us a few years ago from the chaos of Botleigh, we would never of had such a perfect day, we probably wouldn’t of had a day at all! You’ve been our fairy godmother and we are forever thankful to you! Chilworth is absolutely beautiful and our experience there will forever hold a special place in our hearts, none of it would have been possible without you.

We hope to see you soon, we will 100% be visiting Chilworth again.

soon as we arrived, we were looked after straight away and throughout the duration of our stay. They could not do enough for us. We had a lovely ceremony room which held approx. 63 of our day guests and the atmosphere was just amazing.

For our evening reception, we celebrated in" The Coach house " which was so spacious, and beautifully decorated. All our family and friends commented on how amazing it looked and the hotel staff did too.

We had a good choice of food laid on for our wedding breakfast and for our evening reception. We would recommend the BBQ buffet as our day guests said just how tasty it was and how there was a good variety of choices.

We would recommend any couple who are thinking of getting married soon to get in touch with the hotel and speak to Jo. She will make your day so special. If you like to party in style, then we suggest you go for a glitter light-up dance floor! WOW!

We can’t wait to come back to see you all for our Honeymoon stay but hopefully, we will see you before then.

We couldn’t have held our wedding without all her support and guidance. Jo has fantastic knowledge and ideas when it comes to planning a wedding. The government had issued new covid restrictions before our wedding, so we asked Jo many questions, but nothing was ever too much trouble. We met with Jo a week before the wedding to talk through the arrangements for the day. We also met Will, who would be looking after us on the day.

The day itself was amazing! Will couldn’t do enough to help us, and nothing was ever too much trouble. We honestly had the most amazing day at Chilworth, and we can’t thank them enough for everything they did for us.

Even on Sunday, we had our room for breakfast with our guests, and Antony was brilliant! He was so friendly and made sure all our guests had everything they required.

From initial enquiry to the very day itself, Jo was incredible and couldn't do enough to support us on our

journey to the aisle. She was always available to answer silly questions, and was never fazed - even by last minute changes we had to make. We never felt panicked or worried that something was going to go wrong, as we felt so assured that Jo had it all sorted out.

Most of our guests chose to stay at the venue itself over the weekend, and it was wonderful being able to see them on the evening before and the day afterwards. Everybody said what an amazing location Chilworth Manor was, and how grand the place was. Quite a few used the gym and spa facilities, and others went for a walk in the grounds, and it was lovely for us to hear they'd had such a relaxing and fun weekend.

We have a few picky eater friends and family, but absolutely everybody commented that the wedding meal was delicious - what more can you ask for?

Will was looking after us all day, ensuring we were never without our favourite drinks, and checking in with us throughout the day to make sure we were on track and we didn't need to alter any timings. We can't express thanks enough for how well we - and all our guests - were taken care of throughout the day, and in fact over the whole weekend.

The private room for breakfast the morning after the wedding was a particularly nice touch, as it gave us a proper opportunity to say thank you and goodbye to everyone before they took their leave. The wedding was everything we wanted, and more, and the photographs show just how stunning the venue is.

Thank you so much to all the staff, from the girls who brought us breakfast to the Bridal Suite in the morning, to Jo and Will who were supportive throughout.

We will be back next year!

Our wedding breakfast was the nicest meal we had all eaten in a long time and everyone agreed. We have only good things to say about the day and wouldn't change a single thing. We have many happy memories of Chilworth that we will cherish forever.

The wedding planners at Chilworth Manor are just brilliant. We initially had Ashleigh and then our wedding was handed over to Georgina. Georgina has been amazing since we first met her. She made us feel at ease at planning our wedding day and had everything covered with the finest details. Georgina

was extremely organised and would always respond to emails/call promptly which is very helpful when we had lots of questions about the big day.
We are truly grateful for everything Georgina did you make our day so special.

Chilworth Manor is a beautiful venue and such a lovely place to get married. A few glitches appeared on the day, mainly with service and the way staff dealt with situations, and if these had been eliminated then Chilworth Manor would be a faultless place to get married.

We are going back to spend our first wedding anniversary in the bridal suite and very much look forward to this.

My husband and I agreed that we literally couldn’t find a fault if we tried – Will (the Event Manager) and his team were literally 5* the whole time… and also the staff on reception (various people in our group commented the same…) were brilliant, super welcoming and helpful.

showed the Coach House before the evening got started – it looked out of this world – I was actually quite emotional because of how nice it looked! The effort that had obviously been put in, and also how chuffed the guys clearly were, at how pleased we were with it, really made my whole evening.

Having worked with Georgina for a good while, I was absolutely confident it would be a nice evening.. but we didn’t have our whole day there and were on a pretty tight budget so we certainly didn’t have expectations or demands of ‘above and beyond’ service… so when we got even better than that I can’t even tell you how much it meant. We wanted this to be the high to end a tough year for us, and you and your team certainly delivered that – way beyond our expectations.

Best wishes,
Mr & Mrs Maker 

From the moment we first looked around Chilworth until the big day, our wedding planner Georgina was fantastic at answering all our queries and our requests, and was there on the morning to help set up the coach house, which looked beautiful. Will, the master of ceremonies, was very helpful, organised and ensured everything ran smoothly on the day. Thank you so much Chilworth for giving us the wedding day we dreamed of!

On the day itself it was the hottest day of the day year so far, which meant we decided to bring the wedding breakfast forward half an hour to get guests sat down into the aircon room, this was no problem for the team at all. Food was brought out on time and pipping hot with many guests stating it was the best food they had at a wedding reception ever!

The day literally couldn't have gone any better, everything was set out and done as per my requests. The staff were helpful and ensured we all had a great day!

Highly recommend this location, the grounds and the rooms are just stunning, it does have a real wow factor for the guests and the pictures.

After attending multiple open days at other venues, getting quotes and spending a fair amount of time reading reviews, we were still on the hunt for a suitable venue in southern Hampshire. We attended a wedding open day event at Chilworth Manor in February 2018, luckily for us we found the ideal

Read More

venue practically on our doorstep.

We had an initial meeting a few days after the wedding fayre to get quote and a tour around the venue. We were very impressed with the venue and the package cost was very reasonable. Our wedding coordinator Georgina was a pleasure to work with and very prompt with replies to any queries that we had along the way. The Chilworth team organize a meeting with the bride & groom around three months prior to the big day, to ensure that everything is planned down to the last detail. This is essential for the whole day to run as smoothly as possible and results in a very happy bride and groom on the wedding day.

Our ceremony was in a local church so we cannot provide any feedback for having your ceremony at Chilworth. As we arrived on the grounds the red carpet was laid out, a very nice touch, we were welcomed with arrival drinks. Our guests enjoyed the outdoor terrace area whilst we were having our photos taken. Our reception room, the Lord Selbourne, captured everything that we wanted aesthetically. The day & evening food was amazing with many of our guests telling us how much they enjoyed it. The turnaround from day to evening was seamless and all in all it was a fantastic day which exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the bridal suite which was definitely worth the additional cost (only £70 to upgrade).

If a great location, beautiful grounds, excellent value for money, quality food and service are all very important factors to you, Chilworth Manor is definitely the venue that you have been looking for. The events team were fantastic throughout the whole processes and were truly a joy to work with.

We chose Chilworth Manor for our wedding after attending a wedding fair at the venue. We were lucky enough to be able to get a date in June (booked in October the year before) and even luckier on the day with the fantastic weather.

Georgina at the hotel was very easy to work with throughout the

Read More

whole planning period with contact mostly by email along with a couple of face to face meetings.

The hotel worked very hard to provide us with sufficient Vegan choices for the wedding breakfast. The original menu options only had a single main dish that we could have (trio of vegetables, which we did not like when we tasted it). They offered another choice of gnocchi, which turned out to be excellent and was the dish we chose. They also provided a vegan gluten free dessert (Sticky Toffee Pudding), which was not on their normal menu either. The evening buffet was also extended from the normal choices to provide some Vegan alternatives.

The GK Chesterton is an excellent ceremony room with bay windows that look out over the grounds providing the perfect back drop for the bride and groom. The only slight issue would be that the seating arrangement ends up with 3 on each side, which can lead to guests being split.

The Lord Selborne room was a great choice for the main function room as it had direct access to the terrace area, which was well used because of the lovely weather. The room comfortably held our top table and 6 other round tables. In the evening there was also plenty of space for the dance floor and the buffet just across the corridor in the Herb Garden worked very well too.

On the day the manager, Adam, ensured that everything went smoothly and there were no issues at all from our point of view.

booking date all the way up until handover, believe me there are a lot of questions that come to you in the middle of the night that need addressing, she was able to answer everything and if one of my odd requests was a bit out of the box she was happy to investigate for me. We chose a different option to the standard wedding breakfast menu, we went for a roast dinner and I have to say I was extremely impressed, everyone's food was hot, arrived the same time and was a good portion size (not piddily sample size) The running of the day went pretty smoothly and Kata our wedding day Co-Ordinator was brilliant, he was there when you needed him and worked in the shadows when he wasn't. He insured the day ran smoothly and made sure everything was in place for the turn around's. The buffet food was also delicious (or so I am told, I was to busy to even get a chance to try some) Cannot fault the reception at all if I am honest, the only issue was there was another bride getting ready who wanted to go down stairs the same time as I made my entrance (Nan is partially blind and didn't want her thinking the other bride was me) but that was quickly sorted out, Thank you all for making my day go smoothly :)

From our first visit to Chilworth Manor we found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Not really knowing what we wanted for our special day, we needed someone we could trust from the start, helping us to decide on a design and further more manage our day so we could enjoy it without any hassle.

Chilworth Manor (Georgina Place) was excellent in her knowledge and planning and really took her time to go through the whole day in great detail and listening to our ideas and trying to fit them all in.
The quote was simple and straight forward to understand and no shocking extra costs, once we agreed on a set-up. Having our wedding and ceremony all in one place was also very well managed by Chilworth Manor (Vali), they were always one step ahead and at no point did myself or my wife ever need to ask or check what was happening.
The food, both for the breakfast meal and the evening buffet was exceptional, all our guests commented on how nice and plentiful it was.
We both had an amazing day, both the venue and staff played a big part in delivering this for us. We were so glad we chose Chilworth Manor for what was our biggest day and we wouldn't hesitate recommending them to friends and family in the future.
A Very Big Thank You to all the staff at Chilworth Manor, especially Georgina and Vali for all their hard work they put in for our big day.

We had our wedding at the beautiful Chilworth Manor on the 8th September 2018. It was absolutely amazing and everything we had always dreamed of. Jo Bennett took care of the organisation of our wedding and she was absolutely brilliant every step of the way. Jo was always speedy in her communications

and with her attention to detail, we always felt that our plans for our big day were in safe hands.

In the last few months leading up to the wedding, we had a few meetings with Jo and she was so professional and organised. Jo even helped dress the coach house reception suite on the morning of the wedding with our table decorations and favours - everything looked perfect!! Jo is a credit to your hotel, she works very hard and is brilliant at her job. Thank you so much Jo!

On the big day, everything ran like clockwork. We were greeted at the door by Jo and Vali before going out to the beautiful grounds to enjoy drinks and canapés on the patio. Vali then led us to the coach house suite for the reception. The food was absolutely delicious and we had a number of comments from our guests about how nice it was. Adam also helped look after the food service at the reception and both Vali and Adam worked very hard to make sure everything was in order. Vali asked if we wanted a separate room for our guests for the breakfast the next day which was a very nice touch!

Thank you so much Chilworth Manor for our amazing wedding day, we had such a special day and we can’t thank you enough for everything!!

We would thoroughly recommend Chilworth Manor as a venue for weddings/special occasions.

and Coach House for the reception to comfortably accommodate the number of guests. We also used Luminique for some of the decoration and chair covers, which Jo matched perfectly with our colour scheme.
Numerous meetings throughout the months and plenty of advice via email and phone was very welcomed as we are a young couple and not really familiar with wedding setup. The menu tasting was fantastic and we found it difficult to choose, especially for 80+ guests. Jo was on hand every time we visited the venue and gave us every bit of knowledge she could which benefited us immensely.
Once we had selected the menu and received a room layout from Chilworth, it was time to sort the final details. We arranged with Jo to come and decorate a table the day before and even deliver our whopping cake, which was no problem at all.
The whole day went without a hitch and we met Adam the day before, who would be our contact throughout the day. He also deserves a special thanks as he correctly timed the ceremony music and ensured the rooms were turned around/set up correctly. Adam also announced us into the wedding breakfast and introduced the speeches etc.
The evening reception was just as great. We used the resident DJ and the team were very accommodating, even with our 10 person photobooth.
All in all, it was an amazing time with family and friends in amazingly luxurious settings and grounds.
Would we recommend anyone to get married there? Unquestionably yes!
Even before the wedding when people asked “where are you getting married?”, and we replied Chilworth Manor, the responses were WOW that’s going to be great.
Thank you all again for making our day go to plan and so memorable.

challenges from the outset. Our Wedding Coordinator was simply amazing throughout our whole experience having to liaise & plan, communicate & deliver with minimum involvement with the Bride to be.

Our Coordinator Jo, put any reservations to rest as her whole team at the Chilworth were truly exceptional, everything went like clockwork. As my Bride Louise was flown in by Helicopter Jo’s team were on hand, our guests were out to the rear of the venue as the Helicopter buzzed over to land, all the staff ushered guests to their seats shortly before the landing & upon arrival, the Bride was greeted, allowed to compose herself with her bridesmaids before making her grand entrance, due to the well organised staff to hand I cannot thank them enough.

From the Ceremony to the reception we were greeted by a really friendly team who totally coordinated our Wedding Breakfast without a hitch, not one complaint from our guests. Ashleigh & Alex made sure our wedding breakfast came out piping hot and with very generous portions indeed, nothing was too much for the staff, any table which needed more gravy more veg etc it was all delivered with a smile, the way it was all synchronised was second to none you could have put music to it all.

Our evening buffet was plentiful & truly amazing as the presentation was spot on, I would definitely recommend the Hog Roast for the evening. As the evening wore on it had been clearly a long day for all, I was impressed how attentive the staff still were as the evening drew to a close.

We both agreed we had had our Wedding at the Perfect Venue indeed.

Alex Parsons on the evening before on set up and on the running of the day worked his socks off to ensure everything went to our plans and wishes. He was always on hand to ensure everything was running on time. He made sure my friends and family had a great time, always checking with us if we required anything. His customer focus and service was first class. He maintained regular customer contact throughout the day. He had high standards, ensuring we were happy at all times. Both Jo and Alex are a credit to the team at Chilworth Manor. All the staff worked hard to make things seem effortless, which we all know it isn’t. You can rest assured you will have all your needs met, above and beyond, great customer service. Food – Wow! We had the Premium BBQ served on the patio. The catering department was excellent! Staff were courteous and worked to high standards. The food was amazing, there was so much food, enough for seconds and some! Food is bought from local companies/ producers which was superb, so tasty and cooked to perfection. We had so many compliments on our choice of the BBQ for our wedding breakfast, it worked so well and allows the atmosphere to be more relaxed and enjoyable.

The food was plentiful, hot and served promptly and efficiently, and tasted amazing. The accommodation was perfect and the extra touches in the bridal suite were appreciated.

The hospitality continued to be first rate the morning after when Valli met us on our arrival for breakfast and checked we were ok. A lovely touch was letting all our guests enjoy breakfast together in a separate room.

All in all a first rate experience. Beautiful grounds provided a lovely setting for our guests to relax and us to have some wonderful photographs taken. Attentive staff, excellent food and service ensured our wedding day was perfect.

Our sincere gratitude goes to Nathan, Joe, Adam, Alex, yourself and your team for making what could have been a disaster, a wonderful day to remember at the very short notice of our wedding.

Your team worked tirelessly to make sure everything was perfect and more so for us, along with many of our guests who attended the wedding reception, the Lord Selborne room lights just added to the ambience. In addition for those whom stayed at the Manor, helping them reorganise their accommodation with some upgrades was a great comfort.

Your hospitality was superb, the chef organized and reproduced our pre wedding meal, wedding breakfast and evening buffet which was well received. Your team were extremely pleasant, hardworking furthermore so professional at the Manor from your reception ladies, waiting and bar staff, to your area managers. Outstanding! The complimentary bridal suite was wonderful, with the extra touches of the bubbly, swan towels and rose petals which were most appreciated, plus the view and cleanliness of our room was exceptional.

Being able to have a separate dining room for breakfast with all of our guest, the morning after, was lovely and relaxing allowing us to continue with the celebrations.

The kitchen, also the waiting staff, especially Adam and Alex, deserve a medal for working as hard as they did to meet everyone’s expectations on Easter Weekend at such short notice.

Our biggest thanks goes to you Jo, the highest above and beyond working ethic we have ever met. You really have truly made a devastating disaster, into something joyful which will always be remembered.

Best Wishes

Tracey & Andy Peerless

It truly was a magical day on Saturday. Everything (weather included) went really well and made the day really special.

Firstly a special mention to Adam who was great at keeping the day rolling. His team were also really helpful and friendly. The staff were all really supportive and happy, they

made all the transitions very smooth, they made it a very relaxed atmosphere and we felt very welcomed from the moment we arrived as well as our guests who all noted how they were greeted with a drink.

The meal was spectacular and amazingly delivered, we cannot fault how quick and efficient everyone received their food, all our guests enjoyed it too and it was top quality service. We want to thank the flexibility the team showed towards our guests, who had some demands, which your team met, we were very grateful how it was dealt with.

The evening was lovely, again the team was very quick in getting the room changed round fast which made the evening reception really simple and easy. Everyone enjoyed the buffet food and had a great time the DJ was really good with the variety of music he played.

Thank you Jo, so much for the organisation it really was a fantastic day we are so, so happy with how the day went we would not have changed anything.

My husband and I got married here on 21st April 2017. From the very first time we went to visit, Sarah made us feel welcome and we knew she would ensure our day was perfect. She remembered who we were whenever we bumped into her at various wedding fayres, had so much patience with us when we were

being indecisive and offered her advice every step along the way.
We had good access to the room to drop off favours, etc. and the room was set up beautifully, exactly the way we wanted. On the day, Joseph was our wedding manager. He was brilliant, working from first thing in the morning until last thing at night and he was always visible, ensuring all of our guests were comfortable and happy. The team were fantastic, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was great.
The food was something I worried about, having been to places before where it wasn't very well managed. The food was all delicious, cooked perfectly and served at the same time. Our guests were very impressed and still keep complimenting the food!
The venue is beautiful. Our photographs look incredible in the grounds, it's definitely something we will cherish forever. The rooms are stunning, especially now they've been refurbished. We had the most perfect day, it was better than we were expecting it to be and the team had a lot to do with that. They had everything under control so we could enjoy ourselves.
I would strongly urge anyone who is planning their wedding to come here.

Hi Sarah,

Before we swan off on our honeymoon I wanted to make sure I sent you an email to thank you for absolutely everything you did for us.

You've been amazing from day one, and we really appreciate all of your efforts to ensure Friday was exactly as we dreamed it would be.
Friday was

perfect, and everything went smoothly. Joe did a brilliant job, please thank him for us. He was always visible and around, always checking we were okay and had a smile on his face (even though he must have been crazy tired)! His presence was a reassurance itself, he deserves a medal for his hard work.

Everybody was so impressed with the venue and all of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble, even Rob serving our parents in the main bar at 2am

Morning Sarah

Me an andy are just getting ready to pack for our honeymoon but we couldn't leave before saying the biggest thank you to yourself, David and everyone at Chilworth for the amazing day you gave us on Friday.

We really couldn't thank you enough for the marvellous help you have been

Read More

since you stepped into your role. You were always there to answer questions and happy to help - we couldn't have asked for a better point of contact; also Jo has been a great help too!

Also could you extend our thanks and parents thanks to David.
We didn't get to see him yesterday morning when we checked out but he made our day run smoothly and without a single glitch or problem. He was brilliantly calm and helped wherever he could - we have loved to have thanked him in person but sadly he wasn't there when we left.

Lastly we want to extend our overall thanks to anyone who had a part to play on our day. The waiting team were brilliant and operated brilliantly on instruction and everyone commented on how great the food was so please pass our compliments back to chef.

I have copied in the feedback email onto this email of thanks as I cannot find a contact email for your general manager but please do forward this on to him as we think you were all a credit to the hotel and should be recognised for all your hard work.

Thank you once again for everything and we hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes

Sophie & Andy
