    Brilliant setting for a wedding. Went like clockwork from start to finish thanks to great planning by their wedding team and the waiting and catering staff. The food deserves special praise. Considering over 100 people were catered for. The standard was unbelievable . If I'd had the same meal in a restaurant when they were cooking it to order for, say, 2 people I would have been mightily impressed but to maintain that high standard for over 100 people is more than impressive. The ambience is delightful and the rooms beautifully decorated and presented. We couldn't have chosen a better venue. Congratulations and thanks to the staff - nothing was too much trouble and they worked their socks off.

    Our whole experience of organising our 'exclusive use' wedding day at Charlton House has been absolutely A1. Our wedding coordinator Megan, was efficient, friendly, organised and knowledgeable making the process of coordinating such a momentous event relatively stress free and easy hence our wedding day was absolutely perfect. All of the staff were superb with a special mention to Julian for his expertise in all areas! Would highly recommend anyone to celebrate and have their wedding day here.

  • Emma Ceely

    Our day went perfectly in every detail. Our wedding organiser Megan was amazing, nothing was too much trouble and she was always cheerful. On the day, our excellent master of ceremonies Julian had control of everything. The food was delicious, there was not one plate that wasn't empty. We had personal service from the chef James. All the staff have been friendly, helpful and polite on each time we have visited and the surroundings were beautiful. We stayed in the bridal suite and had the most comfortable bed ever with stacks of pillows. If we were getting married again, we would still choose Charlton House.
