Full Description
Kingsettle Stud is part of The Cholderton Estate, a 2500 acre organic family-owned farm on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border, close to Stonehenge. Built in 1880 and formerly the Estate's Stable Block, Kingsettle Stud's Grade II listed courtyard and barns are set within extensive grounds including a breathtaking Victorian Walled Garden and Arboretum. Holding just an exclusive number of weddings between May-September, the Stud building and courtyard provide a unique party space, whilst the gardens are an ideal spot for humanist ceremonies and entertaining your guests during the afternoon. We also have a small number of luxury boutique cottages and cabins on the Estate to accommodate your guests, with the additional option of glamping in the meadow surrounding the Venue over your wedding weekend. We are dry-hire, have an 'open' supplier policy and don't charge corkage. Every wedding held at Kingsettle Stud is unique and from the point of booking you'll become part of the gang!

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Susie Edmunds
Kingsettle Stud was established when we married here ourselves in 2016... it worked so well as a venue that we've continued the party and now have a thriving wedding business and a gang of Kingsettle Couples under our belt! We are independent and family-run, meaning we're able to take a very relaxed and flexible approach to each wedding held here at out family-home. We love meeting new couples and hearing all about their plans!

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Every wedding held here is completely unique, and we love to see what our couples come up with for their day. Obviously our own wedding day here was an important one... Honestly by the time the weddings happen, our couples feel like family, and they are all very special in their own way!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Try not to sweat the small stuff! I see so many couples get bogged down in little details like favours. When you book with us, you essentially have four things left to organise; a caterer, a florist, a band and chairs. Although we have an open-supplier policy, we do have a little black book of local suppliers who we think are great. If you're supported by good suppliers, everything shall go without a hitch! We are a dry-hire venue, but as we only hold a small number of weddings a year (about 10-15) we are always on hand to support our couples with their planning as much as is needed.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We did have one couple called Kitty and Niek who grew flowers in pots at home, and then brought all these things from their garden in to decorate the Venue. I think they might have even brought in a tree! They created a huge floral arch from roses foraged from home. They also had guests bring in cakes (kind of like a fete) instead of having one big wedding cake. Everyone came and stayed over 3 days and helped set-up culminating in a big party over the weekend. It felt so familial and warm. Then there's Ben and Becky who had all of their guests camping in vintage tents in the field. Also love it when the family dog gets involved! I think this year one of our couples is bringing their pony!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, flexible, unique, fun, beautiful

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Photographers LOVE our venue! My favourite spot is out in the wildflower meadow during 'golden hour', although the 'tunnel' in the Arboretum is pretty unusual!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have... although we pride ourselves on our discretion, and would never dream of telling!

What’s your favourite canapé?

I love canapes. All canapes. Every shape and size. You cannot have too many canapes in my view! I frequently recommend Nyama catering to our couples, and they produced the most exquisite canapes for a wedding last year which were prepared over flame and served in our Walled Garden. They did this stuffed pepper one which was next level.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Woodfired pizzas! Best enjoyed around our huge antique Kadai fire pit. Our courtyard is perfectly suited to street food vans.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The dance floor is in the Archway where the horses used to be washed down; your guests are literally dancing in the moonlight (but safely under cover of the Arch if it's wet) and the Glitter Ball reflects little stars on the woodland surrounding the venue. It's completely magical. The Bar is also in the original Harness Room, complete with tack and Victorian features. I don't think there's any other venue quite like it!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

That our business has grown organically. We have plenty of other strings to our bow (Rory farms the Estate and I am an Equine Vet), which means we don't need to put the hard-sell onto couples when they visit. Wedding planning is meant to be relaxed and enjoyable, the venue sells itself!
