Most important was Sammie she was superb , from the time we got there until late in the evening nothing was too much trouble for her , she asked us every hour if everything was Ok and did we need anything , she was so supportive to Sarah the whole day , she was so well organised.

A Truly Magical Day!
We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding at the Historic Dockyard Chatham. The staff were friendly and accommodating and made the whole process as stress-free as planning a wedding can be. Our guests loved the unique setting for the ceremony on board HMS Gannet, and the house and gardens at Commissioners House made the perfect environment for everyone during the wedding breakfast and evening reception. It was a truly magical daySent on 19/12/2017

Could Not Ask for More!
Our experience of booking our wedding reception at the Dockyard was positive and straightforward from start to finish. The information pack was full of relevant information, and during a planning meeting every detail was covered. During the build up to the wedding it was so nice to be in safe and experienced hands. On the day we couldn’t have asked for a better level of support, just the right balance of being there for us but not intrusive. All of our guests had a great time, and having the garden so close to the marquee gave children a safe place to play. Being able to use Commissioners House and other areas of the Dockyard for photographs allowed some wonderful photos!Sent on 19/12/2017
