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 their 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. Our team of experienced and expert planners 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.

Our wedding day!
WOW! Claire, Jess and the team at Kelham are just amazing! Due to covid we had to postpone our day 3 times, but each time Claire was absolutely amazing at helping us find new dates and suppliers to make our day how we want it. On the day the whole staff were amazing and helped it run so smoothly! Not to mention, the breakfast the morning after was phenomenal (all our overnight guests have said it was great!) 10/10!

You have exceeded our expectations
We're just reflecting on a "whirlwind of wonderfulness" that was our wedding day. It exceeded our expectations which is in large part because of you and your team. You guys worked so hard and seamlessly behind the scenes to make everything happen. We can't thank you enough. We've had so many compliments from people about the day, the venue, and the staff. The catering was great, and the waiting staff were brilliant and very accomodating. Your reassurances and reminders to stop us getting involved throughout the day really helped us have an awesome time. Thanks again for your support to make the day happen and to welcome Rupert too. We really appreciate the extra touch! You've done a brilliant job. We'll send a proper thank you over to you in a few weeks. Thank you.

Just Fantastic!
We have said it many times from day meeting you on day one -to our civil (in July) and then our Hindu wedding/Reception (In August), you and the team were fantastic! The attention to detail, things running smoothly, always being present when needed and helping with everything. You all joined in on all the fun and I hope you all ate and tried everything! We would do the whole thing again as we know we could leave it with you, and it would all go to the T. As Ravi said in his speech- you made this wedding happen – Always so positive and keeping us going till the end - we do have to say a massive thank you to you. We will be sure to come for a coffee sometime soon as you and Kelham House have a very special part in our lives

Unbelievable wedding
From start to finish kelham house really looked after us. They listened to our requests and ensured they did everything to make our wedding as personal as possible. Both the Claire’s were just so approachable and did everything we requested with no task being too much! Our day was perfect from start to finish and we cannot fault it. Just the most magical day ever and we have been on cloud 9 since. They are a very special team and deserve a huge high 5.

The best day ever
It was such a perfect day, the only thing that went wrong was that i had a wardrobe malfunction, the lining on my dress kept riding up and the waitress at one point sorted it out by pulling it down and straightening my dress, she really went above and behond her duties. The day will remain one of our best memories forever, the whole day was perfect and i would do it all over again with all of the lovey staff.
