I recently got married here and would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking. The hall looks incredible and the package on offer was very competitive. Harriet who organsied the day did a great job and took care of anything that popped up last minute! The gardens are huge and we are looknig forward to going back in the summer to have a proper walk around.

Thank you for your kindness, help and generosity. I've been playing with the band for over 15 years, been to over 600 venues and never felt so welcomed and looked after. You and every member of staff were spot on and it was a genuine pleasure to be there from start to finish. The coffee was most appreciated also, and whilst it may sound like nothing, is a real rarity. You had a lot to think about but made us all feel welcome from the moment we arrived to the very end. Thank you!

It may seem unusual for a wedding photographer to post a review about a wedding venue. But it's the least I can do. Because beautiful house and stunning gardens aside, the entire team always makes me feel incredibly welcome with beaming smiles and excitement. The welcome is so warm it feels like coming home. And this is how it continues for the entire day. Behind the scenes everything is professionally and efficiently run. It's a joy to work at Kelmarsh - and they even remember how I take my tea.
Where do we start with Kelmarsh Hall …. just the most beautiful wedding venue, with an amazing team of staff who really made our day run like a dream! We visited Kelmarsh in June 2020 and met Eleanor; we thought the hall and gardens were beautiful and we instantly knew Eleanor would make sure everything ran smoothly! Thank you to all the amazing Kelmarsh team who look after the hall so wonderfully and especially to Eleanor and Harriet who helped make our day extra special.

From the moment we visited Kelmarsh, we knew it was the venue for our dream wedding. Like stepping right into an episode of Downton Abbey! We initially thought that it would be way out of our price range but were surprised to find out it came within our budget and was very reasonable especially as you and your guests get exclusive use of the house for the whole day. The team were exceptional from day one in helping us to organise and create the perfect day. We had a couple of viewings to show parents around on top of our viewing and they were always so accommodating. They also had a really handy list of suppliers that made picking things like the cake and photographer so much less stressful. We got married in October and the gardens were a beautiful backdrop for the photographs, we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. We also really loved the bridal room so the bride and party could get ready at the venue on the day. We both felt like Lord and lady of the house for the day and it is a moment we will never forget! Thank you to the Kelmarsh team for making our dream wedding come true and making the whole process a positive experience. Our friends and family still talk about how amazing it was.

We chose Kelmarsh hall as our wedding venue because it is absolutely stunning and had everything we wanted and more! From the moment we first got in touch, the staff were extremely friendly and went above and beyond to answer any questions we had and to turn our dreams into a reality. The gardens are beautiful and the views overlooking the lake are fabulous and perfect for fireworks. We had the most amazing day and can’t thank everyone enough for making our day so special. I highly recommend!
