I attended a wedding here early 2019. As soon as you drive through the entrance a sudden shock of - 'oh my word, what have we come to' suddenly hit. Things like the grass being long, pigeon poo everywhere, with all fences rotten. I felt sorry for the bride and groom. Cheap and nasty.

Wedding day and stay

Buildings and rooms beautiful. Luckily we are very adaptable, otherwise appalling management would have ruined ruined the day. We had a small wedding (70 guests) and were only permitted to be in one room at any one time during the wedding day. This meant that guests who did not like loud music left early as they were locked out of the (promised) quiet bar. The owner seemed to promise whatever he thought people wanted but had no intention of providing it. He was noticeably absent on the day. The staff ushered us from room to room and locked the doors behind us. The outside doors were locked such that the band could not get in and missed one of their sets. They eventually managed to get in when we were ushered outside for the fireworks. We had arranged to put up our own decorations and table decs (including fairy lights around the pillars.) Setting up was no problem, but collecting it all the next day a nightmare. The owner had promised he would have it all taken down and put in one place for us. We arrived and the hall was locked. Door bells were not answered and no answer on the phone numbers. Eventually a reluctant cleaner opened a door and we pushed past her as she did not really want to allow us to enter. Most of the stuff was ready, but the lights were still up the pillars. No ladder to enable us to get them down. Eventually removed with combination of chairs and tables, but rather dangerous and not what was promised. We also rented their houses which were a nightmare - poorly equipped, freezing cold, no curtains in the bedrooms etc. etc., All this could be solved with decent management which was lacking.

Wedding day

By CHETNA SINGH, on 06 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2018

After we booked the venue we were extremely disappointed and angry with management and staff members of Kelham as the let us down on our special day. The staff were not customer focused one bit! We found staff to be completely unreliable and unhelpful during the planning and more importantly actually on our wedding day. They were unaccommodating to our needs and in turn this caused my husband and I unnecessary STRESS throughout. The management only seem to care about taking your money when booking the venue and then leave it to you afterwards LITERALLY ?? On our actual wedding day, we were not looked after at all which is APPALLING especially since we paid a significant amount of money for our special day. The facilities were shocking also, toilets were in an awful state and our guests were forced to pay for their own parking, even though we had agreed parking would be free on the day prior for guests. ?? In addition, we found staff to be unresponsive in communication throughout which added to the stress, taking days to respond to queries and questions . We also were given FALSE promises. We were told that we would have a DESIGNATED member of staff on the day, point of contact that would co-ordinate and help when needed throughout the day, help to direct guests on arrival, but guess what ....NO STAFF ANYWHERE where to be found, this was actually shocking again causing chaos for our family and friends. In the end our wedding photographer ended up directing our guests! It is a real shame such a stunning & beautiful venue such as Kelham Hall and country park is ruined by the unprofessional, blasé, chaotic and shambolic organisation by management and staff. ?? ?? ?? ??

We would just like to say that whole process of viewing the venue, to the end of the wedding day was incredible! We couldn't have picked a better place to get married. All of the staff were incredible, from the original Wedding Planners (Louise and Emma), and then Laura and Jessica who took over the process (and Jessica did an amazing job on the day making sure everything ran smoothly to say it was the first one she had overseen on her own), to the wonderful catering and waiting staff, and Paisley on reception. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone and the whole day was perfect! We went back a few weeks later for the Fireworks night, and the venue still felt like a special place to be in, and the staff were still extremely welcoming and helpful even though it was a completely different type of event. We would also like to say a big thank you to Jonathan (the owner) for infusing some of his passion for Kelham Hall into both of us when we attended the very first tour, which has led to us both falling in love with this very special place! Thank you again to everyone, and we will be sure to visit again and again.

Absolutely amazing

We got married at Kelham Hall and it was the best venue we could have chose. The staff were polite and professional and the building itself is spectacular! I couldn't have asked for anything better!
