Amazing experience!

We got married at Chilworth Manor in July 2023. From day one the experience was amazing, and it was a no brainier which venue we wanted to choose for our special day. We met with one of the wedding coordinators Phoebe, who talked us through the various packages, which were reasonably priced, and we were shown around the gorgeous venue which has so many beautiful photo spots. Phoebe has been so friendly and approachable, and guided us every step of the way in our planning.
The day went by perfectly, with the help of George, the event manager and Alex, the operations manager. The staff went above and beyond to make our day very special. Those little extra touches really made for a memorable day. Really happy with our experience and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

Absolutely beautiful wedding

We just wanted to say the biggest Thankyou from both myself & Sam for the most amazing wedding day! It was everything we imagined plus more! We are so grateful for the smooth planning and amazing coordination on the day. Both yourself and George where absolutely amazing! The whole day was a dream and couldn’t of gone any better! The food throughout the day tasted absolutely amazing, and was coordinated so well to ensure there wasn’t a rush but had so much on offer! George absolutely smashed the day, He was so polite, professional and energetic, It really made the day so much more relaxing and fun! From start to finish your planning was impeccable, you really listened to everything we wanted and took our vision and created it exactly how we imagined. Your communication throughout was amazing, it made planning a wedding so easy! Every single member of staff we encountered were smiley and helpful, the Bar staff were so friendly and there never seemed to be a queue due to how quickly they worked! I am so glad we choose chilworth for our venue, It was the perfect day, matched with the perfect team.

We are incredibly grateful for every single person who helped make our day so special.

Our perfect day!

We had our perfect wedding day at Chilworth Manor! We went to look at the venue in February 2022 and were amazed at how the photographs online didn’t do it justice! The updated reception, bar area & restaurant really had the WOW factor! In the Spring and Summer, the driveway leading up the manor looks pretty spectacular too! And the grounds!! That’s what we truly fell in love with!! Throughout our wedding planning process, communication with the events team and our wedding planner Phoebe was so easy! They were always on hand and really quick at getting back to us whenever we had any questions or worries! Nothing was ever too much trouble!! In the lead up to the day, we felt extremely reassured and were in constant communication with the hotel! We had final details and handover meetings with our wedding planner and the team and we really felt our day was in safe hands! On the day… it couldn’t have been smoother! Both myself and the groom got ready in the hotel as did many of our friends and family and everything was brilliant! There wasn’t a single fault with the entire day! All of our guests said about how well the day flowed! Alex was in constant contact with us throughout - making sure we knew everything that was happening & we were kept informed at every stage! Anything we asked for was done straight away! And the food was even better than when we went for our menu tasting! There were so many special touches I could go on forever!! But we can’t recommend Chilworth Manor enough and they pulled out all the stops for the best day of our lives! Thank you so much!! From the new Mr & Mrs Rowles.

Wouldn’t change a thing!

Chilworth Manor was the first venue we viewed and from the moment Phoebe gave us a tour of the grounds, we knew we wanted our special day to be within those beautiful grounds. Phoebe became our personal wedding planner and has answered all of our questions, offered advice when we have needed it and helped to perfect the plan for our ceremony and celebration. She has gone out of her way to change things to suit our guests special requests.

We met George 3 days before the wedding and immediately felt that the event was in very safe hands with our host. He made sure we were exactly where we needed to be and when. He even took control of the ceremony music for us. George interacted with our guests and had everyone laughing, cheering and applauding, he was fantastic and it would not have been the same without him, what a character!

Our wedding breakfast was a real talking point. The food was even more delicious than it was at our tasting session. The portion sizes were very generous and everyone was happy. The kitchen, waiting and bar staff all did an amazing job and everything ran like clockwork.

We were extremely lucky to have a gorgeous sunny day so we were able to use the outstandingly beautiful grounds for some amazing photographs, which we will treasure forever. Luckily we live fairly close by and we can visit the grounds whenever we like. We will be sure to make the most of these opportunities and will definitely recommend Chilworth Manor as a wedding venue.

Your beautiful hotel will forever hold a special place in all our hearts.
Thank you for making our day perfect and stress free.

Perfect venue choice

Our wedding reception at Chilworth Manor was exceptional. Throughout the planning process, our co-ordinator Hannah was always reachable which was immensely reassuring. Hannah's thorough communication and accommodation of our every request ensured the day ran smoothly, and our face-to-face meetings as the big day approached proved that no detail would be forgotten.

On the day, our toastmaster George, the catering staff, and everyone else involved went above and beyond for ourselves and our guests. Having our September wedding on the hottest day of the year was one thing we couldn't have planned for, but the attentiveness of the staff made all the difference, keeping the arrival drinks cold and opening an extra air-conditioned space for our guests to cool down just beside the terrace. George made us feel special throughout the day and enthusiastically helped us include a game and a song performance during the wedding breakfast. An older family member of ours was unable to attend until the evening due to the hot weather, but upon our request his three course meal was served hot when he arrived, which we cannot praise the catering staff enough for.

Overall, throughout our entire experience with Chilworth, nothing was too much trouble. Along with the beautiful setting it provided for our wedding day, this made it the perfect venue choice for our reception.

Wedding day

From start to finish, Hannah and her team were amazing! Our wedding day at Chilworth was the best day with Hannah and her team on hand all the way through, ensuring it went without a hitch.
Just wish we could do the whole thing again!!

Highly recommend

We are just on our way back from our honeymoon and I wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and all the staff at Chilworth Manor (particularly Kevin and Dom). The venue was everything we dreamed of and the day went so smoothly! The food was highly complimented and to such a good standard. The staff were approachable - and went above and beyond to help out. Dom was fab in helping us get things to the coach house, distributing the food and was always ready to help out.

Thank you to yourself for always going above and beyond to answer any of our questions and easing the process of wedding planning.

Way beyond our expectations!

My husband and I agreed that we literally couldn’t find a fault if we tried – Will (the Event Manager) and his team were literally 5* the whole time… and also the staff on reception (various people in our group commented the same…) were brilliant, super welcoming and helpful.

When we got showed the Coach House before the evening got started – it looked out of this world – I was actually quite emotional because of how nice it looked! The effort that had obviously been put in, and also how chuffed the guys clearly were, at how pleased we were with it, really made my whole evening.

Having worked with Georgina for a good while, I was absolutely confident it would be a nice evening.. but we didn’t have our whole day there and were on a pretty tight budget so we certainly didn’t have expectations or demands of ‘above and beyond’ service… so when we got even better than that I can’t even tell you how much it meant. We wanted this to be the high to end a tough year for us, and you and your team certainly delivered that – way beyond our expectations.

Best wishes,
Mr & Mrs Maker ?

The wedding planners are just brilliant!

The wedding planners at Chilworth Manor are just brilliant. We initially had Ashleigh and then our wedding was handed over to Georgina. Georgina has been amazing since we first met her. She made us feel at ease at planning our wedding day and had everything covered with the finest details. Georgina was extremely organised and would always respond to emails/call promptly which is very helpful when we had lots of questions about the big day.
We are truly grateful for everything Georgina did you make our day so special.

Chilworth Manor is a beautiful venue and such a lovely place to get married. A few glitches appeared on the day, mainly with service and the way staff dealt with situations, and if these had been eliminated then Chilworth Manor would be a faultless place to get married.

We are going back to spend our first wedding anniversary in the bridal suite and very much look forward to this.

Cannot thank Chilworth Manor enough

We cannot thank Chilworth Manor enough for making our day extra special.

They listened to our wishes and how we wanted everything set out for our wedding reception and they didn’t disappoint.

Everyone had such a good time! I have to especially thank all the bar staff, Will and Jo Bennett and the DJ recommended by Chilworth Manor for making the evening run smoothly.

Thank you all again! The Newman’s

Best Wedding they have been to

We are so glad we chose to have our wedding reception at Chilworth Manor Hotel! We had the best day, and everything ran so smoothly. So many of our guests have said its the best wedding they have been to, with the 3 course wedding breakfast and evening buffet all being delicious and served warm and on time. We also loved having our welcome drinks out on the terrace which provides a beautiful setting for photos. From the moment we first looked around Chilworth until the big day, our wedding planner Georgina was fantastic at answering all our queries and our requests, and was there on the morning to help set up the coach house, which looked beautiful. Will, the master of ceremonies, was very helpful, organised and ensured everything ran smoothly on the day. Thank you so much Chilworth for giving us the wedding day we dreamed of!

Absolutely incredible day.

A Massive, massive thank you to Will and all the C&B team for their hard work on Saturday.

We had an absolutely fabulous day and their kindness and relaxed nature really helped. A few last minute table changes and delays along the way didn’t upset them and for that, we’re truly grateful.

We all had an absolutely incredible day.

The food was great, the service was 5 star and everyone has commented since.

Thank you so much for all your help on the lead up.
