The Commissioners House was originally built not only as an elegant and relaxing family home but also as a grand entertaining place for the owner’s guests.
The Commissioner’s House was completed for the Commissioner and his family in 1704 and is now part of a 80 acre historical dockyard in Chatham, Kent. With many spectacular areas within the grounds of The Commissioners House, you can visit for a day out or hire for your special day.
With exclusive use of the House for your wedding day you are sure to have the most wonderful magical experience. Become the Lord and Lady of the House and welcome your guests with a champagne reception followed with canapés whilst your photographs are being taken.
Options range from the Pavillion Marquee that can be styled to match your wedding theme to a ceremony in the spacious light Ballroom or Sunne Rooms. Both rooms have views of the gardens and are an idyllic location for your special day.
With countless dream backdrops within the 80 acre venue you will be able to take away striking images to cherish for years to come. Whilst your guests are attending your drinks reception within the upper levels of house you can see beautiful scenic views from the house across the landscaped gardens to the river Medway to Rochester. A poignant place for a picture is within the many shrubs and rose gardens which include a 400 year old Mulberry.
And for something just that little bit different, why not look at the HMS Gannet which is part of British heritage of the Victorian Navy and was built in 1878. The ship has now been restored to her former glory and your wedding ceremony can take place in the Captain’s Cabin, on the quarterdeck or Main deck, following with your nautical themed wedding breakfast and evening reception within the Commissioners House.
