    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.

    The most magical wedding venue

    If you’re thinking of choosing Kings Chapel as your wedding venue, we can’t recommend it highly enough. We got married here in January 2018 and it was the most wonderful day. From the very first moment we spoke to the Kings Chapel team, everybody we dealt with was friendly, helpful, enthusiastic and just genuinely keen to help us have the perfect day. Jade was our coordinator and was just brilliant - always on hand to give advice and so knowledgeable. What’s lovely about the venue is the fact it’s a blank canvas you can decorate to suit your style and the Instagram page is a very useful source of inspiration! Old Amersham is a beautiful place, and the style of buildings make for a really picturesque setting. It even snowed the day after our wedding which made it seem all the more magical. And last but not least, the food was absolutely fantastic!
