Perfect Wedding Venue

2 years ago we chose Kelham House Country Manor to host our wedding on 08.06.24. This was the best decision we ever made.
We have since read recent, not so positive reviews and can only say these portrait the exact opposite of our experience.
From our very first meeting with Claire Simpson the level of service we have received has been absolutely first class.
We had the most fantastic day and the team at Kelham House Country Manor could not do enough, going above and beyond our expectations. Every single one of our guests commented positively about every single aspect of the day.
Kelham House Country Manor really is a fantastic venue with a superb team, who delivered a 6 Star level of service ******. We really cannot recommend them more!
Our heart felt thanks to Claire and her amazing team for giving us the perfect day to remember. Mr & Mrs H 🥰

A day we will never forget

Kelham House was, without doubt, the perfect venue for our wedding❤️
From the moment we first saw the house, we knew it would be the one for us. We had 90 guests during the day and a further 50 guests in the evening. The size of the venue made it feel intimate without it feeling cramped, with various rooms and areas for people to make use of throughout the entire day. The garden and grounds are beautiful and particularly in April when the trees are all in blossom. Claire and the team went above and beyond to make sure that everything ran smoothly and our guests loved the day as much as we did. We can't thank everyone at Kelham House enough, they truly made it a day that we will never ever forget.

The Best Venue!!

We booked my wedding at Kelham House Country Manor in 2021 after our wedding was cancelled twice from another venue. Claire Rawson was extremely friendly, kind and accommodating. She made us feel at ease and was thorough during all our appointments. We are so glad we came to Claire as she organized our day into something spectacular. She went above and beyond for us, and her team were fantastic, she had an eye for detail when it came to our wedding and she listened to us every step of the way. Our day turned our perfect even if the day was against us, Claire and her team were by our side the whole way. The food was delicious, and all our guests had nothing but compliments! We really had the best day and Kelham House made that possible for us! We cannot thank Claire and her team enough for everything they had done for us and there is nowhere else we would have had this experience.

The Best Day Ever

From the initial day we first went to look round this beautiful place we loved the staff and the feel! After looking around other places it became very apparent that not all wedding events managers are as good or as happy in their job role as Claire. She made the whole organisation leading up to the wedding so easy & stress free.

The whole day ran so smoothly & was even better than we had imagined! All of the staff were so accommodating and lovely with all of our guests.

Finally the photos that we’ve had from our wedding day show just how special the venue is with so many beautiful places in the grounds whether it be a Summer wedding or a Winter wedding like ours.

The perfect dream venue

Kelham house was an absolute dream. When we first walked in and met Jess last year we knew we had found our venue !

Since then we have always been warmly welcomed, they’ve always been patient with our 100 questions and made to feel very special on each of our visits .

Katie our coordinator was a true star. A wonderful lady that is warm and extremely professional.
I cannot begin to describe our gratitude for her work behind the scenes to make our day run smoothly with us blissfully unaware of any bumps (despite a change of plans due to weather )

Their grounds are beautiful as is but also incredibly beautiful even in the rain .

I cannot recommend Kelham enough . They don’t tell you what wedding they can offer they instead work over and above to give you the wedding you want !!
They made our day seamless , beautiful and perfect !

Absolutely amazing

We had the best experience with Kelham House. From the second we booked we had full communication with 'claire' and had upto date information at all times.
She always kept calm and reassuring me at every step during covid times (we had to postpone)
We had the full site option which included use of 12 bedrooms, ceremony room, bar area and 2 reception rooms. There is also eoodland to the rear where we had photos taken.
On the day all the staff were so polite and could not have done more to accommodate myself and guests. It felt like a home from home and i will treasure the experience forever ✨️

Our Big Day

Our wedding day at Kelham House was just incredible. From the very first moment when we looked around the venue, to the planning meetings with Alicja that perfectly encapsulated our vision, to the morning after the wedding everything was exceptional. The staff at Kelham are incredible, and really go the extra mile to make you feel relaxed and at ease whilst ensuring you have the perfect day. The venue itself is divine and a little bit of spring sunshine really helped to make our day that little bit extra special. We would like to say a huge thank you to ALL of the staff that have helped us over the past couple of days, with extra thanks to Josh and Andrew! We will cherish the memories of our wedding day for years to come- it was a perfect day spent at Kelham House.
Thank you,
Mr and Mrs Gunning

Although now I mainly deliver wedding cakes to Kelham House, I have the fondest memories of this stunning venue as it's where we had our own wedding reception back in 1998! I love going back there, everyone is so nice.

In the lead up to our wedding all the staff were amazing. They were so flexible and accomdating with our package and at no point was there ever a ‘no’ or a ‘we can’t do that’. As a result our day was the most amazing, perfect day we could have wished for. The grounds were beautiful and inside Kelham was very modern and clean. The rooms are lovely too. The food tasted amazing and they made some changes after our tasting session. All in all a fab experience we would recommend to anyone!
