    Just fantastic thank you

    We have just had our civil ceremony at the gorgeous Lovekyn Chapel and cannot thank the staff there enough for making our day truly fantastic.
    We booked the Registrars from Kingston Council to come out and perform our ceremony and they made the ceremony fun and we got to choose our own words.
    The staff from Kingston Grammar School who run the chapel were there all day to look after us and our guests and they even served the prosecco which we supplied to our guests.
    It was the most relaxed wedding ever and we cannot rate the chapel highly enough.

    Our wedding 19th may 2019

    A Perfect venue for a small and intimate wedding. We had 30 guests and they all loved Lovekyn chapel. It is very special and the event manager supplied us with all info we needed to organise our own special event. The courtyard was a lovely place to greet everyone after the ceremony before moving on to our reception. We’d certainly recommend the lovekyn!

    We loved every second

    Where do we begin? Everything it says on the website is true! We did bring in loads of beers and prosecco and the chapel staff served it to my delighted guests for a free party! We even did a free pre-wedding welcome drinks before the ceremony too!
    I (the bride) arrived via a private entrance so my husband-to-be and guests did not see me arrive in my dress before I entered the chapel.
    The whole experience was magical and the chapel staff looked after us and our guests from beginning to end.
    Cannot fault this wonderful venue

    Staff were super

    Wedding coordinator was super - not just on the build up but on the day. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had. She was a fantastic and calm voice when we were so nervous. The chapel is small and beautiful - just perfect!

    Just so easy, informal and stress free

    Such a wonderful little ceremony venue. It was decorated beautifully when we arrived and the staff served our guests prosecco and there is no charge for this service. A simple, informal ceremony and lots of music and drinks. Just perfect and just what we wanted.

    A lovely intimate venue

    We are thrilled that we chose the lovekyn for our wedding! It has all the lovely features of a chapel but is completely non religious. The venue organiser could not be more helpful and it was very simple to organise. The little reception after in the garden was a great bonus. Loved the fact it was in central Kingston so easy to get to our reception after. A wonderful memory to look back on.

    Relaxed, fun and well organised

    All so easy. Best man dropped some prosecco and glasses off in a cooler box at the chapel a couple of hours before the wedding. The chapel's manager set up the prosecco table for us and whilst we were in the chapel getting married, the manager was pouring the drinks in the little separate reception room ready to serve our guests after the ceremony. We brought in our CD player and speakers and our friend played the music. It all worked like clockwork!

    So well looked after - nothing to worry about!

    The chapel has a full-time wedding manager who made the chapel look so pretty on the day with lovely white silk flowers (all for free). We hired in beautiful chair covers which were all on when we arrived. Our best man dropped off some picnic coolers full of prosecco and orange juice and some plastic champagne glasses in the morning and the chapel's wedding manager served our guests drinks all for free. I (the bride) was collected from my car by the chapel's wedding manager and I was brought into the chapel via a private door so that Jonathan and the guests didn't see me at all before I made my entrance down the aisle. All very simple and lovely. Nothing at all for us to worry about.

    Perfect. Unique

    Out civil ceremony was managed by the chapel's manager from beginning to end. we were in such safe hands. Cannot thank the venue and manager enough for all they did to make sure our day was perfect. The hour's free prosecco party inside the chapel was such a bonus! Our friends loved the whole experience - and so did we!

    Just magical

    The chapel manager opened the chapel two hours before our ceremony and decorated it for free and it looked gorgeous. She also got me from my car and looked after me and steadied my nerves. She was amazing. My best man dropped off some beers and prosecco in the morning and the chapel manager served it to my guests after our wedding FOR FREE for a whole hour. It became a real party atmosphere. My guests said it was the best wedding. It's not a church even though it looks like one, completely non-religious. Just wonderful

    What a fabulous find

    We served champagne and beer to our friends in the chapel after the ceremony and this was a free service which this wonderful little chapel allows couples to do. What's not to love! It rounded off the ceremony perfectly and saved us a lot of money!

    Magical!

    Couldn't ask for a more special place to have our ceremony. Non-religious, words which we wanted and alcohol served before and after inside the chapel for free!! Our friends thought it the best wedding they had ever been to!

    Perfect venue

    Perfect, unique venue for our civil ceremony. The Prosecco reception we were allowed to serve to our guests for no fee was just fantastic
