When we went to meet Dahlia Hill, wedding co-ordinator at Chewton Glen, my daughter told her that she wanted a magical environment for her wedding and Dahlia and her team delivered exactly that! From the breath-taking decor to the exceptionally delicious dinner, all backed by seamless service at the hands of charming and endlessly considerate staff, the wedding exceeded all our expectations. There was nothing that Dahlia and her team could not or would not do - no request refused. Both the wedding ceremony and the reception were handled with the greatest of care to every single detail - and our guests loved every minute!

We got married in the Treehouse at Chewton Glen and it was a brilliant way to celebrate our Marriage. The whole experience was faultless and every effort was made to ensure we had the perfect day (which we did!). We gave the wedding co-ordinator very little instruction and she really did create the perfect package for us, it was better than we could have ever imagined. It was a real luxurious way to spend the weekend, the price was reasonable and all the staff were fantastic. We also had a birthday celebration here the same weekend and all of our guests commented on how great the experience was and how well looked after they were by the staff. A truly lovely place to stay and we would definitely recommend it!
Thanks to all who gave us such an unforgettable, amazing weekend.

Outstanding venue and service
By Emily Hughes, on 10 Sep 2014
My (now) husband and I wanted a small but beautiful wedding for 30 of our nearest and dearest. We were put in contact with Dahlia Hill and her team at Chewton Glen by family, and so the experience began. We live in Australia so the majority of the planning was done remotely, and the level of service and help we received was second to none. Throughout the planning nothing was too much trouble, and Dahlia and her team achieved everything we were hoping for, for our big day. The venue was spectacular, every minute detail was taken care of, and despite not being a natural 'organiser' I was made to feel totally in control throughout. The day itself was truly perfect; it ran like clockwork, the venue looked spectacular, the food was outstanding, the staff were super and everything we had hoped for came true. I really can't say enough for the venue and staff - we will definitely be returning to Chewton Glen as soon as we can as they gave us the happiest day of our lives!

We had a wonderful and very special day, thanks to Dahlia (wedding co-ordinator) and all at Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa on 1 September 2014.
We wanted an intimate ceremony with just our elderly parents and chose the Tree House wedding...My goodness, it was the right decision!
In particular Dahlia's help was fantastic, especially on the day itself - she arranged for me to get ready in a private room and even helped me get into the dress! Her continuing advice and reassurance along the way was invaluable.
The hotel and staff really lived up to their superb reputation. It seemed that nothing was too much. We are already planning our next visit. Our parents are also smitten - in fact, we will be going for lunch soon to celebrate a Birthday (and any other events we can think of!)
On the day we were designated a 'personal butler' Adam, and even the buggy driver made our day. The Tree House was amazing - from our hot tub to our breakfast hamper and spa appointments - and everything of the highest standard.
The wedding dinner was also exceptional. We were spoilt rotten and it was fabulous.
All in all, a very special day, in a very special place.
If you are thinking about venues, look no further! We would not hesitate to recommend it.
Really was THE BEST Day & Night Thanks to Chewton
By Freya Cork, on 02 Jul 2014
I wanted a very stunning but relaxed "non cringey" wedding that would be intimate. I only wanted 50 guests and I loved Chewton Glen from previous stays and spa packages. Myself and my now husband met Dahilia Hill the wedding co ordinator, and she really was so helpful from start to finish. We started wedding planning 9 weeks before the wedding. Dahlia & the rest of the Chewton Glen staff worked above and beyond to make it exactly what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and they allowed us to be as creative as we wanted from food presentation to room decor. Every single one of our guests said it was "the best" and "most amazing wedding" they'd been to. It's also a huge bonus how beautiful the hotel and grounds are - with plenty to explore, from gardens to a lake to treehouses! As a lover of good food too, it was delicious!
I can't thank them enough!
Wedding, February 2014

Choosing Chewton Glen as our wedding venue above all others was the best decision ever made. Not only is it a stunning venue with amazing facilities, the staff are all so friendly and make you feel so at home, they are always so eager to genuinely lend a helping hand and have a giggle at the same time. CG will even provide you with your very own Wedding Planner, the amazing Dahlia, who with all the patience in the world will help make your wedding day dreams come true. She makes the whole experience so much fun, from choosing suppliers to the day itself and nothing was ever too much hassle. Myself and especially my husband loved the personalised suppliers day where we got to taste various cakes, then there was the food/wine tasting day, which, well we don't totally remember, but I know there was a lot of laughter! Each time we visited we were made to feel so special it made the whole journey and process of wedding planning so exciting for both of us & took all the stresses away, not to mention hopefully making a friend for life in Dahlia! So sad it is now all over, but we hope to visit again soon, maybe to celebrate our anniversary next year.
Dreams can come true!

Everyone dreams of their perfect wedding and Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa made that a reality for us last October (2013). From the moment we met Dahlia (personal wedding planner for the hotel) to wandering around the venue we knew this was the perfect place to make all our dreams come true! The ease of planning our wedding with Dahlia helping us throughout the process made it a non stressful experience and it wouldn't of been the same without her. From meeting with recommended suppliers from the venue to finer details, nothing was too great or to small or to much trouble along the way. If we had any concerns or worries Dahlia was always on hand to ease our minds. The food, wine and service of the hotel staff on the day was second to none and 5 star all the way. We were lucky enough to complete our wedding day in one of the hotels tree houses, a truly magical way to end our most perfect day! Special thanks to Dahlia for all her support and to all the staff at Chewton Glen.
Our Amazing Wedding Venue
By Aimee Dunne, on 27 Mar 2014
Myself and Alan held our wedding reception at Chewton Glen in June 2009. The day couldn't have been more perfect from the venue, staff, food, service...everything. I'm a wedding planner myself and see many venues, but Chewton Glen still remains my favourite and myself and Alan, and are two children like to visit still at any opportunity. I couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Our Perfect Wedding Day
By Kelly & Mark Taylor, on 28 Aug 2013
We got married at The Chewton Glen Hotel on 2nd September 2012. From our initial meeting with Dahlia right up until our big day, we knew we had made the right choice in choosing this as our venue and Dahlia as our wedding planner. Leading up to the event, Dahlia was a rock, guiding us through the planning process, taking away our worries and helping us source suppliers. On the big day its self, Dahlia was on hand in her usual calm and professional manner to ensure everything was as we wanted it and that my husband and I could enjoy the day we had planned and looked forward to. Dahlia and her team ensured that it really was a day we, along with our family and friends will never forget and we will be eternally grateful to her as it really was the best day of our lives.

My wife and I were married at The Chewton Glenn in July 2012, we were in the middle of looking at many different venues but after meeting the hotels wedding coordinator Dahlia Hill and touring the hotel and grounds we never glanced at another venue again. We are an older couple and were getting married for the second time and very much knew what we wanted, Dahlia very quickly became an indispensable part of our planning and a real life problem solver. We had decided on a small wedding with just seventeen guests and ourselves, however the service and consideration we were given made us feel like VIP's, nothing was ever to much trouble. The venue is stunning, the food is unbelievable and the wine, well lets just say it was very nice!! All of the staff were so polite and accommodating, sadly such a rare commodity these days. Dahlia has become a family friend and we still talk on the phone and meet for coffee regularly. Recommending The Chewton Glenn for your wedding is without doubt the most comfortable recommendation I have ever made.
Perfect family wedding weekend
By G.Holmes, on 17 Jul 2013
My daughter recently got married at The Chewton Glen Hotel and I cannot fault the planning, the actual wedding or,indeed, the wonderful weekend we had together. Dahlia and her team were brilliant from first meeting over a year ago and throughout the planning and wedding weekend. All the staff went out of their way,as always, to make it a relaxed,enjoyable experience. We has six young children in our group and none of them wanted to leave. Perfect.
A dream come true!
By Philip and Rachel Timewell, on 16 Jul 2013
Everybody says 'perfect' when talking about weddings and it may seem a bit cliché but ours really was the perfect day and exactly what we wanted.
Chewton Glen is the epitome of beauty and the ideal location with amazing scenery and wonderful on site facilities.
From the beautiful ceremony in the delightful Summer House, to the wonderful food and the perfect evening reception, everything we expected and wanted was catered for and more.
A big part of the day was the staff. They were professional, courteous and friendly and seemed to enjoy the day too.
The food and wine were exceptional as too the personal touches from the chef.
Dahlia Hill (our personal Wedding Planner) was a calming influence leading up to the event, on the day and during all the celebrations. No issue was too small or big and her comment of 'If we don't have it we will get it' put us very at ease. It wouldn't have been the same without her.
Finishing our day in a personal tree-house topped off a day that not only will we remember, but will never be able to forget.
