If you are thinking of booking Kings Chapel for your wedding , absolutely do it!

If you are thinking of booking Kings Chapel for your wedding , absolutely do it! From start to finish the support, advice and help was incredible! We have formed such a bond with Kings and its charm and plan to visit annually to revisit our venue for dinner & drinks.

A special mention to Lara our wedding coordinator, when we met she put us at ease and nothing was ever too much trouble - a huge support on the build up and on the day. Queries or questions were always answered efficiently and we built a great relationship.

Every supplier we spoke too, couldn’t recommend Kings highly enough which is exactly what you want and everyone worked like one big team - it was seamless and gave a great vibe to our day.
The food was incredible, everyone commented on this and especially one vegan guest who said they had never been so catered for before at a wedding - amazing. We had canapés which were delicious and Kings kept a separate board for Bride & Groom which was a lovely touch, the 3 course meal everyone commented on how incredible the food was but also the service was top notch, ticking off every guest as they went round each table and lots of servers which made everything smooth. We also had the wood fire pizza which went down such a treat at the end but of the night - delicious! & the gin bar which was beautifully put together with tonics, garnish etc.
We also had a meal the night before which was sooooo good too, amazing top quality pub classics! We stayed at the Kings Arms the night before and our wedding day and made use of the late night bar too. It was so great to be able to spend breakfast with our wedding party too! These extra options were great to have.

We would recommend Kings to anyone.
Kings will always hold a special place in our hearts and we honestly had the best day! If we could do it again we would! Thank you!

Perfect venue for an intimate wedding

We got married at Kings Chapel in July 2022 and had the ceremony and the reception there. It was an amazing experience - perfect venue, wonderful staff who clearly enjoy what they do, and were supportive and unflappable. Food was amazing. It was fantastic having the hotel next to the chapel. It really was such a perfect day.

Wonderful!

What can I say?

Our wedding took my breath away. There was not a second that the KC team were not working so so hard to make it run smoothly and look beautiful. Not a single hitch, everything looked unbelievable. The service was exceptional and the respect we were shown was off the scale. Everything from music to lighting, decoration to food to drinks to clearing away was amazing. We have no words. Our vision was met beyond our wildest dreams and when those doors opened I couldn't believe it was the same place that we viewed (although already beautiful). Just stunning. And that party. Perfection.

We had exceptional support over the year leading, especially as things got closer and we were especially needy. They were wonderful and we are so glad we were assigned Kiera as our planner. Kiera is so great at her job and we cannot thank her annd KC enough.

An absolute must !

Where do we begin? From the very start the whole team at KC went above and beyond to support us.

Our wonderful wedding coordinator Alexis was incredible. It felt like we were planning this special day with a friend. She was always there to help us and was extremely generous (especially with dog biscuits for our pup!) She made everything feel like a breeze and offered great advice and ideas. She had a great understanding of what we wanted and ensured it happened on the day. We cannot thank you enough for what you contributed to our perfect day!

We were always welcomed with such special treatment and generosity from the whole team at KC. They were always available to answer all our questions (and there were lots of them!). A huge shout out to the amazing late night bar staff and doormen who really looked after us and joined in with the fun!

I cannot thank you all enough for enabling us to have the most amazing day ever! We are so grateful to the entire team at KC. It is a day we will never forget and we are so pleased we got to share it with you!

August wedding

Beautiful location but…. They are very weird about use of the gardens even early in the evening in a summer wedding. They don’t make any of these rules clear and it’s far from flexible. Communication was often borderline rude.
The food was expensive and the bride (coeliac disease) was served cold roast potatoes clearly from someone else’s plate rather than the wedges which were meant to be gf (as on food tasting!) Food tasting was frankly a shambolic experience too and wine tasting included 2 wines- so not much to taste!
Food service was very late and none of the staff seemed to care. Ran out of champagne glasses so again the bride didn’t even have a drink! I really thought it was going to be better.

It’s been said before - the perfect venue!

We have just had our wedding at The Kings Chapel, and I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect venue. It was just right for our medium sized wedding, and the grounds and chapel itself is just absolutely beautiful.
Like many couples, we had to postpone twice during COVID, but the entire events team made everything stress free and were so helpful.
All of our guests mentioned how much they enjoyed the food at the wedding. Our friends who had special dietary needs all told us they were well fed and catered for, and had a full 3 course meal they didn’t think they were going to get! And the pizza oven in the evening basically started a mini rampage, as it was different to what people were expecting as an evening meal.
The rooms in the hotel were so quaint, comfortable and simply stunning. I had no fears staying there as we are coming out of the pandemic. If I had any negatives of the venue (and this is seriously clutching at straws), if you are over 6ft3 tall, you may struggle to fit on the beds.
Thank you to Tash, Alex, Julia and the entire team, from the bar staff to the waiters who brought us our breakfast in the morning, for making our wedding more magical than I could ever imagine.

Perfect wedding venue

We had our wedding reception here on Saturday 7 September 2019, after having had the wedding ceremony at St. Mary's Church over the road, and it was absolutely perfect, all thanks to the Kings Chapel and the wonderful team there.

The venue was stunning; the food, drink and service on the day were outstanding; and, most importantly, the team there were exceptional. From the very start of the process, when we were just having a look at the place as a potential venue, to the end the morning after our wedding (we and a lot of our guests stayed at the King's Arms the night of the wedding), the team were incredibly helpful: responsive, professional, accommodating and, moreover, genuinely lovely people who were a pleasure to deal with; they took so much of the stress of organising our big day off our shoulders that they made it a breeze for us.

We and all of our guests had a perfect day. We will treasure the memories of it forever and we can't thank the Kings Chapel team enough, or recommend them highly enough to really do them justice.

Nothing short of perfect!

We got married just over 4 months after getting engaged (stressful!). The King's Chapel was the second venue I looked at, and it was just perfect. From the homely village-esque pub with a beautiful log fire in the hotel reception, to the amazing freestanding dome in the Chapel, everything was just beautiful. There are so many places for people to congregate - the garden, the balcony, the Chapel, the reception, the bar - you never have to force people into the same area. The part I loved the most was that you'd never know the Chapel existed from the high street - it's like a magical world you enter through the archway of the hotel. I absolutely love this venue, but what really put the icing on the cake were the events coordinators that take you through the whole process. They have extensive experience, and go through every possible plan/question you might have. They're always available to help and absolutely lovely. All the coordinators are excellent, but our specific coordinator Alexis, was the most helpful, kind and personable coordinator! I rarely give reviews, but I cannot rate this venue and the people highly enough!

About as close to perfection as we could get....

The Kings Chapel was actually only the second venue we saw when we started the mammoth task of trying to find the perfect wedding venue. After that all the other venues were always dismissed as ‘not being as good’ and when we received the extremely reasonable worst case scenario pricing the mind was pretty much made up.

Our coordinator Tash couldn’t have been anymore helpful if she’d tried. From last minute changes in attendance numbers to sorting a bespoke starter, she along with her demon colleagues made the whole run up smooth, organised and pretty much close to perfect.

And what’s not to like? Yes the rooms are sparse decor wise but that then gives you scope to design it yourself! We used venue decorators Ever After to create a perfect scene for us (recommended to us by Kings chapel in the first place) and together they nailed it for us with amazing floral arrangements and a brilliant light canopy going from the balcony to the top of the service area.

If you are looking for simplicity this is it. All accommodation is onsite, the venue is licensed for weddings, they re-purpose that room for the breakfast and then the reception can be held after in the room next door. No ferrying of guests back and forth! And so long as the rooms above the bar are filled by the guests you can keep the Kings Arms bar open til 2am! Everything you need in one neatly packaged bundle. Oh and the bride and grooms room came free.

It was without a doubt the best day of my life, and helped massively by Tash and the team at the Kings Arms and Chapel. We can’t thank them enough for what they did. It was an utter pleasure.
