The perfect day :)
We got married at Chiddingstone Castle in September 2019. It was such a special day and we would whole heartedly recommend the venue to anyone considering having their wedding there. The castle and grounds were beautiful, providing an amazing backdrop for our photos. Natalie and her team worked tirelessly to create the day that we wanted, ensuring everything went smoothly and creating an unforgettable experience. The day really exceeded our expectations and we are both so grateful for everything Natalie and her team did to help us pull it together. Thank you :)Sent on 17/09/2020

Amazingly helpful and supportive team!
The Chiddingstone Castle team were great throughout the whole process, from our initial visit to the venue to the day itself! Having a dedicated wedding coordinator gave us a single point of contact for our queries which were always acknowledged and responded to swiftly in a professional yet friendly way (no matter how small).Sent on 20/09/2020
The team were in regular contact with all our suppliers throughout and this was invaluable in the weeks leading up to the wedding as well as on the day itself. It made such a difference to know that we didn't need to worry about coordinating cake, drink and flower deliveries or decorating as this was all taken care of by the staff really enabling us to fully enjoy our day.
Chiddingstone Castle's reply:It's great to hear that we helped take some of the pressure off your shoulders. There is so much to think about when planning a wedding, it's no problem for us to contact your suppliers and good communication always make planning more straightforward.

Perfect Venue. Perfect Weather. Perfect Day
They say when you find your wedding dress you just know, well the same with this English countryside gem. We found this beautiful castle on a day out in Kent with no intention of finding our venue that weekend.Sent on 21/09/2020
When we met with Natalie and the team, it helped seal the decision. They had a genuine interest in our day and In ensuring that it was a success.
Leading up to to day- no question or query was too small or silly, from dropping off the cake, decorations and bits before the day was a seamless operation whilst keeping the nerves at bay.
The wedding day was beyond perfect, from the guest parking at the castle, to walking back from the church to the orangery for the welcome drinks and canapés, to enjoying our wedding breakfast in the Baron hall to cutting the cake in the White Rose room
They day went perfectly and was a huge success, made possible by Natalie and the team at Chiddingstone.
Chiddingstone Castle's reply:Thanks Sophie, your feedback means so much. With your family background in hospitality and your style emanating from a far more elegant era, standards were high and we're thrilled we met the mark!
