Chatsworth makes an exceptional location for weddings, receptions and civil partnerships. Set in 1000 acres of stunning parkland in the heart of the Peak District in Derbyshire and housing one of the most important private art and sculpture collections, Chatsworth is a venue that epitomises quality and elegance.

This year the Painted Hall has been licensed to hold civil ceremonies and civil partnerships. Chatsworth couples will be able to say 'I do" on the steps of the Great Stairs in a truly magnificent setting. Your guests will enjoy champagne and canapés before a sumptuous wedding breakfast is served in the splendour of the Great Dining Room, a candle lit tour of the Sculpture Gallery ends this wonderful day.

Our civil ceremonies, civil partnerships and receptions are held in beautiful rooms in the famous stable courtyard designed in 1758 by James Paine. Chatsworth couples really do make an entrance with exclusive access to the stables via Lodge Hill in their chosen wedding car or carriage.

The Hartington room our largest ceremony space has recently undergone a full refurbishment,the room is bright and welcoming and contains the original features from the stables. It is the perfect for our larger weddings holding up to 80 guests. The Racing room, originally the tack room is perfect for smaller intimate weddings and is decorated with paintings from the Devonshire Collection. Drinks receptions take place in the Cavendish restaurant overlooking the courtyard and the majestic Carriage House restaurant makes the most wonderful place to hold your wedding breakfast. Evening parties go on late into the night with the candle lit courtyard as a backdrop providing a fitting end to the perfect day.
