Sitting comfortably amidst 300 acres of farmland and bluebell woods, and nestled in its own little valley created by the nearby babbling River Medway, Chafford Park will set the scene for a blissful wedding day, free from the pressures of everyday life.

This gorgeous private estate-cum-wild camping site regularly opens its doors to brides and grooms looking for an alternative and relaxed way to stage a civil ceremony and then celebrate with a big reception, all in one place. With a fascinating variety of different spaces available for hosting the event, both indoors and outside, Chafford Park presents a truly unique experience.


Chafford Park is a historic estate indeed. Chafford has its roots reaching back as far as the fourteenth century, during which it was the family seat of a local Baron called Ralph de Cobham.

The building which survives today, however, was constructed in the 1740s on the footprint of a pre-existing Tudor structure. It is an impressive feat of historic architecture, with its very unusual M-shaped 'double-span' roof which, along with other survivals, has earned it a prestigious Grade II* listing by Historic England.


Chafford can boast a number of equally unique and enchanting areas where you can host the different aspects of your big day.

The Orangery

This conservatory is found at the rear of the building, and can host beautiful civil ceremonies or smaller wedding receptions.

The Gazebo

Get married outdoors in the Gazebo, licensed for ceremonies. Ideal for fair weather, chairs can be set up so your guests can savour the outdoors whilst watching the two of you tie the knot!

The Lawn

Centrepiece of the meticulously manicured landscape gardens, you can host your reception on the expansive lawns in front of Chafford Park. With this amazing 18th-century manor house as a backdrop, you can have a marquee erected as the structure of your dreams - which you can then decorate at will. You and your guests can chill out on the lawn whilst the sun slowly sets.

The Barn

In more recent years the Chafford team has been hosting lively wedding receptions in their rustic barn, which you can decorate exactly as you like! Get in touch for more detailed information.


Of course, it goes without saying that good food is important on your wedding day. Chafford Park can recommend a number of reliable local caterers, or you are welcome to bring in your own.


Don't fancy staying in a stuffy expensive hotel? You and all your wedding guests are welcome to experience the Chafford Park 'wild camping' extravaganza, as you can create your very own accommodation in the glorious space of the park. Guests have put up bell-tents for a genuine glamping experience in the past.
