Taking home the gold accolade in the awards, Chapel House Estate took home the gold award for Wedding Venue of the Year and was commended for being an ‘essential and exquisite destination wedding venue’.

Chapel House Estate was up against industry leading venues across the South East of England, but was thrilled to walk away with the esteemed award, marking another momentous milestone in the venue’s already successful journey.

This award comes just months after Chapel House Estate was awarded Hospitality and Events Start Up of the Year at the South East finals of the StartUp Awards 2023.

Speaking on their win, Caitlin Jarman-Hume, Estate Manager, said:

“Securing the prestigious Best Wedding Venue award in the Beautiful South Awards ’23 for Kent marks a significant milestone for Chapel House Estate, a destination wedding venue launched in July ’22. This accolade stands as a remarkable achievement, notably triumphing over the varied wedding venues in the South East Counties of Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent and the Isle of Wight.

“It firmly establishes Chapel House Estate, with its origins tracing back to a private Chapel constructed in 1290, as an essential and exquisite destination wedding venue. It’s not just a favourite for couples in Kent but also draws attention from neighbouring counties, now easily accessible via the recently opened High-speed Link direct from London.”
