Ballroom . Drawing Room . Marquee
Charlton Park offers 3 distinct options for your wedding reception: our magnificent Regency Ballroom, the Period Drawing Room or several options for a Marquee on the lawns. Scroll down for more information on each.
The first floor Regency Ballroom was added to the house in the early nineteenth century to enable the visiting Prince Regent to dance there with his mistress Lady Conyngham. Happily the Ballroom can now accommodate rather more than just two people and a chamber orchestra, as the floor has been strengthened! Seated meals for up to 80 people, 60 guests for dinner dances or 100 for a canapés reception can be offered. The Ballroom is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 100 people.
Drawing Room Receptions
Delightful panelled room on the ground floor full of natural light accessed via the Hall. The Drawing Room is suitable for small intimate receptions for up to 40 people and can be linked with the Hall for a larger reception (both are shown in images above).
The lawns surrounding Charlton Place provide a beautiful location for a marquee. Charlton Park uses the services of a preferred marquee hire company - Best In Tents - and we are happy to provide further details. All pricing is quoted on an individual basis.
We are now opening up the use of the elegant Wedgwood Suite to Bridal parties throughout their Marquee reception. Please note this room must be vacated by 11:45pm.
Marquee Receptions : up to 120 Guests
Marquees for up to 120 guests are positioned on the Reception Lawn to the side of the house, overlooked by the ballroom, adjacent to the Snowdrop Wood. Receptions being held alongside the house on the Reception Lawn can make use of the house's electricity, toilets and, potentially, the commercial kitchen (where applicable).
Marquee Receptions : up to 250 Guests
Larger wedding marquees for up to 250 people are positioned on the Croquet Lawn just below the sweep in front of the house.
A Marquee on the Croquet Lawn requires its own generator, catering tent and portable washrooms in addition.
Marquee Receptions : up to 350 Guests
Marquees for up to 350 guests can be placed on the Lower Lawns.
A Marquee on the Lower Lawns requires its own generator, catering tent and portable washrooms in addition.
