Chesil House is a new and rather distinctive wedding venue in Winchester, England. Situated on the banks of the River Itchen, just a stone's throw from the famous City Mill and medieval bridge, Chesil House is a magnificent blend of medieval and 19th-century architecture. The venue maintains many unique period features while also offering the very best modern technology and all the comforts a couple could desire.
Facilities and Capacity
Chesil House has a unique beauty and magic that adds an element of elegance and enchantment to any wedding celebration. Climbing the oak stairs from the bright, airy atrium to the Chesil Suite creates a real sense of anticipation and wonder. The Chesil Suite comprises the spacious and beautifully appointed Ceremony Room and the River View Room. Wall-to-wall glass bi-folding doors open from the River View Room onto the deck, which affords stunning views of the gardens and the River Itchen. The Garden Room makes for a wonderfully intimate and romantic setting for your special day or a private space for your pre-ceremony preparations. Its floor-to-ceiling picture window affords excellent views of the gardens and tributary. The sound of the free-flowing water that runs through the immaculately-maintained secluded walled gardens gives the place an air of wondrous enchantment. The romantic rose bridge and sweeping lawns with colourful landscaped borders create the perfect backdrop for those all-important wedding photographs.
Chesil House is available for exclusive hire. Winchester’s award-winning Little Kitchen Company offers a tailored catering service that enables you to enjoy exceptional dishes made using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. The venue's dedicated team of wedding coordinators and technicians will also be on hand to provide recommendations and help you make the arrangements necessary to ensure that your celebration is perfect in every way.

The perfect wedding in the perfect venue
Amazing, couldn't have done it without them
She was incredibly organized and was there to help with anything and everything. She was easy to contact and extremely professional. I can’t imagine what the day would have been like without her. We are so grateful for her! Made us feel comfortable and not stressed! I will suggest her and this company to anyone that is getting married. 😊❤️
A hidden gem - the perfect day
The venue, well, is simply stunning alongside the river, the gardens and the overall feel of this beautiful place in the heart of Winchester. The balcony and the view it comes with is incredible, anytime of year. We married in March.
There are so many options to make your wedding your own here, such as the ceiling lighting in the evening, in-house decor, TV display, ability to livestream (so worth it! The recording is very special), various options for ceremony and breakfast table setup and so on…
This place holds a special place in our hearts and Ben Atkins captured some very special moments from our day as you can see.
Thanks again to Charlotte and the entire team at Chesil. - The Maplesdens.
Our wedding experience at Chesil House went smoothly from the first meeting straight through our wedding day. The staff is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable and assist in every aspect of planning. Our guests raved about our day and we could not have asked for more.
