It has the historical Chartridge Lodge, modern hotel and conference facilities, as well as plenty of space in the landscaped gardens for marquee weddings.

Chartridge, The Photographers View
Photography wise, this venue spoils me 🙂 The old lodge is beautiful with wooden paneling and a huge stone fireplace. Large windows make the light very good in both the lodge and the more modern ceremony room. The grounds are a photographers paradise! Full of colour all year round and so many different features to take advantage of. In particular there is a very pretty pond with bridge. There is a balcony in the lodge which is very handy for group photographs. There is a beautiful traditional library where the Bride or Groom can have their preparations and also the newly decorated bridal suite.
This venue just flows – there is no waiting around while rooms are turned over. You move from one area to the next, ceremony to garden room for champagne and canapes. Onto the lodge for the wedding breakfast. Coffee is served in the reception area and the first dance features in the conservatory. The bar is next to the conservatory (convenient 😉 and it has its own private garden area. In conclusion this venue has plenty of space and lots of features which make Chartridge great for having a stress free wedding day. There are always plenty of staff to ensure everything goes to plan. My couples often comment on the wonderful food and service they receive from Chartridge Lodge.
