Wedding of our dreams
Jane was our wedding coordinator and she has been amazing. She was always quick to reply to emails or answer any questions, and there were a lot. Every little detail was gone other with a fine tooth comb to make sure that everything was as we wished.
When it came to the wedding day, the staff surpassed our high expectations. There were so many small but thoughtful gestures which just made us feel so special. Lewis was our wedding day coordinator and he was incredible. He made sure that the day ran exactly as it should have and made sure we had everything we needed.
The staff are a true testament to Chilston Park and we wouldn’t have gotten married anywhere else. We won’t be able to be strangers and will be returning as much as we possibly can.
Perfect wedding location with an amazing team who worked hard to make our wedding plans take shape
A dream of a day
Beautiful Venue with top quality service
We will return to the venue for sure, maybe for our anniversary to remember the best day ever. Thank you to the whole team for making it happen.
Wedding Reception Perfection in a Stunning Setting
Nothing was too much for the attentive and personable serving staff. Staff were the perfect balance of being present while still giving us space to feel that we had the place to ourselves.
The food was delicious, and the venue itself is nothing short of breathtaking. Every detail is of the highest standard and the bed is probably the most comfortable we've ever slept in.
Thank you for a perfect day!
Chilston Park Hotel Lenham - Wedding.
Attentive and flexible
The weather wasn’t looking great and I’m sure if I was anywhere else they would have pushed for me to go with my wet weather option, however Paul knew how much I wanted to get married outside and made sure this happened…as soon as it stopped raining it was all hands on deck to put the chairs just minutes before the ceremony and providing everyone with umbrellas! It really was the picture-perfect wedding I had imagined.
Most perfect wedding venue
Unfortunately, our little girl was poorly the evening before the wedding, resulting in a hospital dash but even in a crisis the staff remained helpful, professional, and personable. They were all genuinely concerned for our little girl. They really went above and beyond to help us.
Everyone we come across at Chilston from the friendly welcoming faces at the Front Desk, talented Chefs, Bar staff, Events team, Management, Waiters/Waitresses, House Keeping staff and Porters were all amazing.
We had the most unforgettable day, the venue was perfection, the staff were faultless and the food was amazing and is still a talking point even to this day. Our wedding guest are also fans of the hotel, we had such great comments from them all, some of which have already returned to the hotel. I think this speaks volumes.
Our wedding day
Sophie who helped us on the day of the wedding was amazing, so helpful and helped us feel chilled on the day.
The venue is beautiful, so many photo opportunities there weather rain or shine.
The team couldn't do enough to help us and I would recommend them over and over again.
Perfect in every way
Wedding in May 2022
We had 100 guests & was very well looked after. From start to finish.
Jane was our wedding planner leading up to our big day & was always helpful. Any query’s we’re dealt with quickly and any concerns were put to bed with Janes knowledgeable experience of the venue.
Lewis & Charlotte were our wedding coordinators on the day & everything ran like clockwork. 100 wedding breakfast covers came out simultaneously for every course. Everyone had exactly what they ordered & the food was hot & delicious. The dinning staff were friendly, polite & attentive.
Chilston Park is a beautiful building & grounds, with lots of romantic backdrops for wedding pictures. Many of our guests stayed & have commented on how beautiful their rooms were.
By the end of the day we had miss placed belongings though the venue. However by morning the staff had collected everything from lost shoes, car keys, flower girl baskets, ring box & more & neatly arranged it in the breakfast room where it could be reunited with its rightful owner. Which was a very reassuring & comforting.
We couldn’t be happier with how perfect our day was
Well done to all the staff at Chilston Park
Love the Newlyweds
The perfect day!
I would highly recommend chilston park as a wedding venue
