|Commissioner's House, The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, is available as a venue for weddings, civil partnerships, renewing vows, birthday parties, anniversaries, social & corporate dinners, training days & business meetings. Commissioner's House was completed in 1704 for the Commissioner & his family. Above all it was built to entertain in the grand style but it was also a family home. As a result it is a "friendly" building that combines space & grandeur with the familiar qualities of an elegant home.
Commissioner's House is yours, exclusively, for your wedding day. We understand your wedding day is quite literally that, a day. But it is such a momentous day! It is a day to celebrate something truly magical.
We recognise our part in making sure it is a day you will treasure for the rest of your life.
We tailor your wedding entirely to suit you.

Wedding Breakfast & Reception
Following your wedding ceremony, or on arrival from a church, you and your guests sip pre- wedding breakfast drinks outside in the gardens or in the house.
After drinks your guests take their seats in the Pavilion marquee ready for you, the newly married couple! to make your entrance and to begin your wedding breakfast.
The Pavilion marquee, with permanent covered access to the house, is a truly magical space, designed especially for weddings and never fails to impress. The interior can be enhanced to your style, including colours, layout and theming.
The Pavilion marquee seats up to 130 (can be increased to c170 with an extension) and, along with the house, can accommodate up to 225 for the evening party
