Chatsworth House is offering brides and grooms a ‘never to be forgotten’ experience with an exclusive wedding day that will allow just a handful of couples each year to tie the knot in its magnificent Painted Hall. 

With its spectacular setting in more than 1000 acres of Derbyshire parkland, the ‘Palace of the Peaks’ is now able to offer this premium wedding for the first time, having secured a license for the Painted Hall. Chatsworth is eagerly awaiting the first bride and groom to walk down the Painted Hall, decorated with murals showing scenes from the life of Julius Caesar, where they will be married on the stairs in front of their guests.

After the ceremony the bride and groom can indulge in their wedding breakfast in the opulent Great Dining Room which, over the years, has played host to many royal visitors including the young Queen Victoria. Chatsworth has a team of award winning chefs and bakers ready to create a delicious wedding menu from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

Also new in 2015 is Chatsworth’s marquee wedding service, which will see the celebrations take place in the stunning parkland with the house offering an idyllic backdrop to the perfect country wedding. The ceremony room in the famous stable block has also undergone a makeover, with help and guidance from the Duchess of Devonshire, making it the epitome of quality and elegance.

Chatsworth makes an exceptional location for weddings, civil partnerships and receptions and offers personal wedding planning to help set the tone, whether couples are aiming for a fresh contemporary feel or a more traditional, intimate event.
