Maureen & Graham Goldsmith | 60th Birthday - September 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding at the Historic Dockyard Chatham. The staff were friendly and accommodating and made the whole process as stress-free as planning a wedding can be. Our guests loved the unique setting for the ceremony on board HMS Gannet, and the house and gardens at Commissioners House made the perfect environment for everyone during the wedding breakfast and evening reception. It was a truly magical day.
