The Historic Dockyard Chatham has stunning scenery, ranging from majestic ships to the towering red brick buildings. As you arrive at this private gated estate, you’re greeted by 80 acres of historic architecture and a collection of lovely buildings. The garden provides a picturesque setting of secluded spots and a striking greenhouse.

Nestled in the heart of the dockyard, the beautiful Georgian manor house, Commissioner’s House, exudes an aura of romance and offers an array of spacious rooms. The ballroom features stunning crown mouldings and has picturesque views. Boasting a dancefloor and fully stocked bar, it can host 70 day guests and leads out onto the patio and gardens, and conveniently connects to the marquee with twinkling fairylights.

Up the grand staircase with painted ceiling, discover the Sunne Room, which offers a breathtaking view of the gardens and has space for 70 loved ones.

With a seating capacity of 120, the marquee is the most spacious ceremony space. The venue is illuminated with delicate fairylights which exude a soft glow while offering a stunning view of the gardens.

The gardens provide the perfect setting for an idyllic outdoor ceremony with up to 70 guests. Surrounded by beautiful flowers and views of Commissioner’s House, it really is a beautiful space, as is the patio, also licensed for ceremonies of up to 70 loved ones. There are also two getting ready rooms available for the morning preparations!

For something a little more unique HMS Gannet, a ship of the Victorian Royal Navy, provides a romantic location for saying your vows. On board, the intimate cabin (40 guests) is perfect for smaller ceremonies, or choose the main deck (70) which boasts ivory canvas and wooden decks that have seen the world’s seas! This exceptional and thrilling location is sure to impress guests.

Celebrate your wedding reception in the utmost style and elegance with the entirety of Commissioner’s House and its enchanting gardens at your disposal. Revel in the joyous occasion with up to 200 cherished guests, as you dance the night away. Indulge in a fully stocked bar featuring your favourite drinks served all night as well as delicious food.

When tying the knot here, couples benefit from a complimentary bridal breakfast on the morning of the wedding including tea, coffee, pastries and fresh fruit and not forgetting the all-important prosecco!
