Weddings

Nestled in acres of beautiful parkland, Charlton House & Gardens provides the perfect backdrop to your big day.

  • The Old Library arranged for a wedding breakfast
  • Rolls-Royce wedding car outside Charlton House

Built during the reign of James I and one of the finest examples of Jacobean domestic architecture in the country, Charlton House enjoys a fascinating history of intrigue and romance.

Our beautiful wedding halls and reception areas are rich in period detail, featuring original fireplaces, wood panelling and intricate strapwork ceilings.

You and your guests will treasure photographs taken in our lovingly restored walled gardens and, on a warm summer’s afternoon, toasting your new spouse with a glass of champagne in the soft tranquillity of the Peace Garden, will surely be a moment to remember.

Four ornate rooms, long sweeping driveway, beautiful walled gardens, Charlton House is as versatile as it is unique for your wedding celebration. Our beautiful wedding halls and reception areas can accommodate up to 150 guests and are rich in period detail, featuring original fireplaces, wood panelling and intricate strapwork ceilings.

Arrive in style by car or carriage as you travel slowly up the driveway to the house. Greeted with a glass of champagne and escorted through to the beautiful walled gardens for your reception drinks and photographs, capturing happy memories for you and your guests. After drinks move onto your wedding breakfast served by our expert caterers, before dancing the night away with your friends and family.

How does that sound for a romantic setting and a day that you and your spouse will treasure forever?
