The best day!
As soon as we saw the venue we knew it was the one and at that time, it was still mid-built which just shows how much potential it had, even at that time.
The venue is outstanding! The grounds are immaculate and the thought that has gone into every detail can be seen a mile off, in my opinion, there isn’t a venue round here that even comes close.
There isn’t a room or certain space within the grounds that aren’t beautiful.
The staff are fantastic from start to finish. Their communication is on point which I think is something you really need when planning a wedding. They were there as little or as much as we needed. We had Jade as our main support on the day and she was absolutely brilliant, I could not thank her enough for how she was throughout the whole day!
We had hog roast for our wedding breakfast which was delicious and the breakfast the following day was just as tasty, and very much needed!
We have had so much feedback from
Our guests about how lovely the day was and the venue just made it, and we couldn’t agree more.
Sam, Jade & Georgia made our planning so easy & straight forward..everything we wanted was catered for and anything that we may have forgotten about had already been considered!
It’s truly impossible to put into words the beauty of the site and it’s surroundings - it really is the gift that keeps on giving & certainly a hidden gem!
All the staff have a genuine passion and excitement for the service they provide. It’s so rare to find a venue that has so many happy staff who are actually ‘happy to help’ - literally no request is too much!
The house decor & layout is amazing - a must see! The lodges were comfortable and well equipped - our guests could not thank us enough for the extra bonus of being able to stay on such beautiful grounds.
Our day was one that we and our guests will never forget! We will certainly be returning to this venue to celebrate again - we already have ideas to make use of the No.9 Restaurant to mark our one year anniversary!
Thank you all,
Mr & Mrs Murphy x

Do you want the perfect wedding? Read on...
From being shown around the venue by the owner a year earlier, we knew it would be perfect, and indeed, it was!
The grounds are beautifully maintained.
The Chapel House has been finished to an exquisite standard, and the other accommodation on site is great and was loved by our guests.
The whole site was impeccably maintained and as clean as a whistle.
There is ample parking.
The Team went out of their way to accommodate us, with a bespoke menu and served individual alternatives for those with non standard dietary requirements (vegan, veggie and various intolerances!).
The food was of an exceptional standard for over 100 guests and the service was both charming and faultless. It was apparent to us both that the entire team were committed to making our wedding day a resounding success!
In short we were completely blown away by the venue when we first saw it and it overdelivered! What a superb venue!
Special shouts out to Jade, Georgia and the chefs! You are now part of our story!
Would we recommend it?
YES, WE WOULD!
A Slice of Paradise in Kent: A 5-Star Wedding Oasis
From the moment I stepped onto the grounds, I was whisked away to a Mediterranean haven. The outdoor waiting reception area exuded charm and sophistication, adorned with lush greenery, fragrant blooms, and tasteful decor. The soft rustling of leaves and the gentle breeze lent an air of serenity, setting the perfect tone for the day.
The outdoor wedding setup was nothing short of magical. With sweeping views that seemed to stretch endlessly, it felt as if I was watching the exchanging vows in a private paradise. The attention to detail in the decorations was impeccable, and the natural beauty of the surroundings only enhanced the atmosphere of romance and celebration.
The resort's reception area was a true showstopper. Elegant and opulent, it provided a stunning backdrop for speeches and the main course. The seamless blend of indoor and outdoor spaces allowed us to enjoy the best of both worlds. The expansive glass windows offered uninterrupted views of the picturesque surroundings, while the tasteful interior design added an element of grandeur to the celebration.
The culinary experience was nothing short of extraordinary. The menu showcased a fusion of flavours that left myself raving for more. From delectable appetisers to the exquisite main courses, every dish was a work of art washed down with the very best drop of Rosé. The culinary team's attention to detail and dedication to creating a memorable dining experience was evident in every bite.
The staff at Chapel House Estate were outstanding with a special shout out to Katie for really going above and beyond. Their professionalism, warmth, and attentiveness ensured that every aspect of our special day ran seamlessly. They anticipated my needs before I even realised them, and their genuine smiles and willingness to go above and beyond left a lasting impression on myself and it seemed all guests. A huge kudos to Darren & the force on such an incredible team dynamic.
In conclusion, Chapel House Estate is a true gem in Kent, offering a wedding experience that rivals the most exotic destinations abroad. The combination of breathtaking outdoor spaces, luxurious indoor settings, world-class cuisine, and exceptional service creates a truly unforgettable celebration. If you're seeking a wedding venue that transcends the ordinary, Chapel House Estate is the perfect choice. My heart is filled with gratitude for the memories that were created in this enchanting oasis.
Guest at wedding
Of course it was lovely to attend and be part of their day. We had heard good things about the venue, but we were taken back with its fabulousness.
Close by to our home in Broadstairs, we felt we had arrived at a far away country estate far further away than we have travelled.
This set the perfect stage for the quintessential and stylish day of celebrations, which continued with partying and fun into the late evening.
The day was faultless.
Having worked in the wedding and events sector both in the UK and the Middle East, I have been lucky to have experienced many events, both as guest and a professional.
The wedding at CHE was up there with the best, from the F&B to the furnishings and staff.
In fact so good it even made me consider getting married again!
My true dream venue🤍
Great location, beautiful inside area, outside garden area and beautiful architecture, plenty of parking and beautiful views. Our first venue cancelled our wedding and we were so stressed looking for a new venue but we were recommended toChapel House so we went to have a look.
The lovely Sam showed us around and we fell in love. We couldn’t believe this beautiful venue was not already booked! It was our dream venue and I’m in love with it. Our wedding coordinator Emma, is amazing and was so helpful the entire way through. She replied to emails quickly and kept us at ease at each stage of the wedding planning.
All our guests have come back and said they’ve never known a wedding with such a big amount of professional staff. No one waited at a bar or waited for food. All needs were met in such quick time, it created such a happy, relaxed atmosphere. I’ve never know an event like it, such focused, professional, happy, young staff! I am forever grateful for them to helping me have my perfect day.
They clearly really care about what they do and I’m so thankful my first venue cancelled so I could have my true dream venue.
If you are looking to book, DO IT! You won’t regret it.
