Full Description
Arrive along the tree-lined driveway to Kelham House – a stunning venue where the chance to sparkle and shine in style on your magical day is all yours. We can provide as much or as little support as you need, from invitations to flowers, music to photography, and even menu planning. Our chef and his team will work with you to create a menu that fits with your wedding theme. We are fully licensed to host civil ceremonies and are fully equipped inside the House for anything from small and intimate celebrations up to weddings with 150 guests. Sitting in 9 acres, we can use the gardens and parklands to cater events with up to 200 guests. The team at Kelham House will tailor the day to what you want – you can book out the entire hotel and grounds if you’d like an entirely private celebration, or choose a more selective service. Book for summer if you’d like drinks and canapes on the lawn or garden terrace, or, if you’ve always dreamed of a winter wedding, we’ll light our log fires and keep you and your guests cosy.

Absolutely Magical Wedding
Recently got married here, on 30th November, and it was everything we could have dreamed of. We had both our ceremony and reception at the venue. From the day we booked the venue, to the late AMs on the night of the wedding, the staff at Kelham House we absolutely fantastic. No request was too much, and everything was thought of. Samantha, the events coordinator was always on hand to calm my panic and answer every question I threw her way. I cannot praise her enough! The venue itself is wonderful. Log fires were burning, we were able to decorate the whole venue with our exclusive use package, and had complimentary use of the sweet cart! The grounds are fantastic, even in the foggy weather which just made it that much more magical during our photos!! The food was delicious, and all allergies and preferences were catered for. I would recommend Kelham House and their incredible staff to every couple looking for a cozy, intimate wedding that has charm and that little extra something. The bedrooms are all unique and made us all feel very pampered. Definitely will be coming back here!

Amazing wedding venue
The whole experience was amazing at Kelham House. The staff went above and beyond to ensure my daughter and her husband had the most enjoyable wedding possible. They worked with us to ensure we had exactly what we wanted and were on hand throughout the day keeping things flowing. The catering staff produced some beautiful food, the housekeeping staff made sure all the rooms were sorted, including adding all the extra items we had brought along, and the events staff were brilliant at ensuring nothing was amiss. What a team, thank you so much for an amazing day. Xxxx

Our wedding day at Kelham was just incredible
Our wedding day at Kelham House was just incredible. From the very first moment when we looked around the venue, to the planning meetings with Alicja that perfectly encapsulated our vision, to the morning after the wedding everything was exceptional. The staff at Kelham are incredible, and really go the extra mile to make you feel relaxed and at ease whilst ensuring you have the perfect day. The venue itself is divine and a little bit of spring sunshine really helped to make our day that little bit extra special. We would like to say a huge thank you to ALL of the staff that have helped us over the past couple of days, with extra thanks to Josh and Andrew! We will cherish the memories of our wedding day for years to come- it was a perfect day spent at Kelham House. Thank you, Mr and Mrs Gunning

I got married at Kelham Housr on Saturday and it’s was then most amazing day of my life! All the staff couldn’t do enough for us from the planning, through to the day itself. Nothing was too much for them. They made me feel like the most important person in the world! The venue is beautiful. I was allowed to decorate as I wished and looked stunning when the daylight faded and the candles were lit. Just a perfect venue for my perfect day!

Beautiful Venue, Lovely Staff
We got married in August 2018. Right from the day we booked our wedding the staff at Kelham House were always on hand to answer any questions, nothing was too much trouble. They kept in contact regularly. I really couldn't fault their customer service. The venue is beautiful and we were allowed to decorate the room as we wanted. They even threw in the honeymoon suite as we didn't go for the exclusive use option. Thank-you for making our day so special.
