Wedding Testimonials



After their wedding, our happily married couples are often so kind as to share their feedback regarding their experience with us.  Here are just a few examples:


I wanted to write to say how much I and everyone involved in Andrew and Amelia’s blessing appreciate the way in which you and all the staff at Charlton House turned what could have been a logistical nightmare into a relaxed and extremely enjoyable couple of days. Every member of staff did all they could to make us feel special.


In particular, I would be grateful if you would pass on my very sincere thanks to Julian and to chef. Julian’s calm, helpful and seemingly effortless management of the event was masterly. The food for the dinner was exquisite - a fact borne out by the comments I had from the four chef’s in the party!


The wine was beautifully served and that contributed to the enjoyment (we had three sommeliers in the group too!)

Gerry, Andrew's Father (Ameila & Andrew), 31st July 2015


We are now back from our honeymoon and slowly coming back down to earth from our amazing wedding! We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at Charlton House for all your hard work, friendly approach and professionalism which helped make our day so perfect.

Please can you extend special thanks to Chef for accommodating our guests with their special dietary needs and for all the amazing food throughout the day. Julian was an exceptional Master of Ceremonies and everyone commented on how well he performed this role!

Thanks also to Alex on reception who was her usual calm, smiling, helpful self. 

As always, the hotel and grounds looked absolutely gorgeous and all our guests were so impressed with the hotel, staff, quality of the accommodation, spa and food.

Sarah & Peter, 20th June 2015


Rhys and I want to start by thanking everyone at Charlton house for a fantastic day, we really did have a wonderful and stress free day. You were organised, efficient and experienced  - which is exactly what we needed and we really appreciated your flexibility.

On the actual day all members of staff who were working were efficient, friendly and professional, we could not have asked for more. We went to a wedding last weekend in the Peak District and unfortunately you could tell the staff were stressed - which has just highlighted to us even more how fantastic and prepared your staff and Charlton House were. 

I'm pleased to say we have had glowing reviews from many guests with half a dozen or so declaring it was the best wedding they've ever been to (maybe people always say this to the Bride?) and even more saying it was the best food they have had at a wedding. So please pass out thanks on to the Chef - I have even found out one of the non-fish eaters refused to have his vegetarian meal as the fish looked so good and ate it all with great enjoyment!

Our final thanks is to julian - who did a magnificent job just as you said he would, he gave us a fantastic entrance to the Wedding Breakfast so please pass on our thanks.

The accommodation and spa were perfect as always and I have no doubt that Rhys and I will be back for future anniversaries.

I hope the Wedding Season has treated you well - you are certainly doing a great job and we would recommend Charlton house for a wedding without any hesitation. Thank you again for all your help. 

Anna & Rhys, 13th June 2015


We had the most perfect day! To us, it was flawless… the staff were all brilliant and worked so hard, the venue was stunning, the food amazing, everyone has commented on how good the food was! And all your help with the planning and final detail was fantastic. To us, we were the only wedding you've been helping with! Which I'm sure isn't the case, but you certainly made us feel unique in giving your complete attention and focus everytime we met/ spoke. So please accept this email as our greatest thanks.

We still can't believe the wedding is all over now! But Craig and I will visit Charlton House again I'm sure, lots of very special memories.

Nicola & Craig, 29th May 2015


Just a quick note to thank you for all of your care, thoughtfulness and generosity which made our wedding absolutely perfect!

From the first moment we saw Charlton House we knew we wanted to get married there but never did we imagine the day would be as magical as it was. 

Aside from the perfect setting it was the welcome which moved us most - nothing was too much trouble and the staff never stopped smiling!

Sara & Paul, 3rd May 2015

A huge thank you to all of you at Charlton House who contributed towards my daughter, Sara's wedding. We had a truly wonderful weekend, the wedding was perfect and we all have so many happy memories.

On the day, Julian and his supporting staff were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure it all went without a hitch.

What can we say? Perfect venue, fabulous food, friendly staff especially Emily, all our wishes catered for.

From the Thursday when the wedding party checked in we were all made to feel VIPS. All our guests have contacted us to share their appreciation of the day by saying " It was the best wedding we have ever been to !"

Thank you so much for your fabulous organisation skills , calm and patience. As Mother of the Bride  it was a great relief for me to know that you would look after everything. All we needed to do was to relax and enjoy .

Emily & Ben, 17th April 2015


Just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our day so perfect, we had an amazing time. I forgot to mention to reception on check out that as I had a massage booked for 1pm and I went to the spa after checkout, I took a towel and a robe from the room with me, that I put in the laundry in the ladies changing rooms by the gym after I'd finished. I just wanted to check that I wasn't going to get charged for it out of the swipe I'd given on my debit card at check in, as if thought I'd save on the washing!! 

Please thank all of the staff for us and especially Julian as nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so helpful and friendly.

We will defiantly will be back soon, you have an amazing venue and excellent staff.

Claire & Roger, 30th January 2015


We just wanted to send a little note to say a heartfelt thank you for the effort you put in to our beautiful wedding day. We absolutely loved everything you did and had an incredible, unforgettable time. It was everything we could have dreamed of and more! 

The venue looked even more incredible and all the guests commented on not only the beautiful venue, but the amazing staff. It felt like nothing was too much trouble and everyone was happy to do anything to help. We cannot express how truly grateful we are for everything you have done.

Lucy & Craig, 1st August 2014


We have just had a fantastic Wedding at Charlton House and would thoroughly recommend the venue to other couples looking for the perfect setting.

We took the venue exclusively which worked brilliantly for us on the day. We were blessed with glorious weather which meant our guests could enjoy the excellent picturesque grounds as well as roam throughout the splendid rooms inside. Having the venue to ourselves definitely added to the occasion as it felt like our own private house for the day. We were also able to offer out all of the rooms to our guests which was lovely when seeing them all at breakfast the following morning!

Happy Couple, 22nd May 2014


We were extremely pleased with every aspect of the wedding we planned and chose to have at Charlton House. The planning was informal and thorough, and the day went exactly as planned. our main aim was to relax with our guests and enjoy the day and thanks to the whole team at the hotel this we achieved. the venue, rooms and facilities are excellent, the service and the food were matchless. we are most grateful to Sakis and his team for ensuring our wedding day was one to remember for all the right reasons.

Richard, 26th March 2014


We held our wedding at Charlton House in February, taking over the whole hotel for 2 nights. We were blown away at the time and during the planning process by the professionalism and flexibility of the team. We were able to plan and tailor our celebrations exactly how we wanted, and had a totally individual day with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The food and service were above our expectations for both days of the celebrations.

Katy, 5th March 2014


My daughter chose to have her wedding at Charlton House, and we were not disappointed!. The venue, food, accommodation and running of the day was second to none and we have had wonderful feedback from all those who attended, how impressed they were, so really recommend it as a place to hold this special occasion. We will have everlasting memories of a wedding day that was faultless.

Mother of the Bride, 6th December 2013
