Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
It was a wedding we hosted in June 2019. The weather could not have been more perfect, beautiful blue skies all day! Everyone was having such a good time, playing giant jenga and hula hooping during the drinks reception.
For the evening they had a live soul band, definitely my favorite part of the day, they were so talented. The groom even got up and joined them for a song!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book early, the earlier you book the longer you have to plan your wedding and therefore the more relaxing the experience will be for you. Also do not be afraid to ask your wedding coordinator for advice or help, she has planned many weddings so she has lots of good tips and advice.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The Bride and Groom quiz. Each guest got different photo of the bride and groom on their table place. The quiz was about the bride and groom and everyone had to guess who was the answer.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
At Chartridge Lodge we understand how important wedding photographs are to your big day, this is how you will remember your day for many years to come.
There are so many amazing locations to choose from. Once of my top favorites is on our green bridge overlooking our picturesque pond, this is such a beautiful and romantic location for some great couples shots! Another favorite is our grand staircase, this is great for capturing the rare moments before the ceremony where the bride, her father and her bridesmaids are anxiously making their way to the ceremony room!
These are just a couple of my favorites but they are many more beautiful locations inside and outside to discover for your wedding photographs.
What’s your favourite canapé?
We have a wide range of delicious canapes but i would have to say the Mozzarella, olive and cherry tomato skewers and our Mini toad in the hole with caramelized onions are very big crowd pleasers!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Our Bacon and Sausage bap with potato wedges are a definite crowd favorite for a midnight snack.
