Full Description
We understand the need for privacy and so we only ever hire out the Castle on an exclusive-hire basis. This allows you and your special guests to enjoy the grand venue and its magnificent views, with no interruption and total exclusivity. Eastnor Castle is licensed for Civil Wedding Ceremonies, or there is a quintessential countryside church just a short walk away in the village of Eastnor. Your Wedding Breakfast and Evening Wedding Reception will be staged inside the Castle itself, as you relax and enjoy the opulence of the sumptuous surroundings. This also means that should the weather be unkind, the memories of your day can be captured within the walls of the beautiful fairytale Castle. However, the sun often shines at Eastnor Castle and when it does, you and your guests can enjoy a drinks reception on the Upper Terrace, overlooking the sparkling lake in all of its elegance. And so to bed… we have overnight accommodation for the bride and groom, and their close families and friends, in 12 bedrooms, each with their own unique sense of decor and character.

We had a beyond brilliant day
Thank you so much! We had a beyond brilliant day. We’d like to say a big thank you to you and the whole team for running the day so seamlessly. We really didn’t have to worry about a thing and have had quite a few people tell us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Thanks again for making the day so wonderful and for being so helpful in the run up and with the postponement etc. We really do hope to come back soon!

Everything was wonderful
We recently stayed at Eastnor castle for a wedding and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I've had. Everything was wonderful. The castle itself is beautiful and you can spend ages just taking it in. The scenery is stunning and those who run the castle, as well as others who work there were incredibly friendly and helpful. It was a perfect weekend. I hope to visit again. Highly recommended.

We felt so cared for, looked after and valued
Myself and my partner fell in love with Eastnor the moment we saw it, and knew it was our wedding venue almost instantly. We planned our wedding over 3 years and in this time could never fault Eastnor, the staff were always welcoming, informative and accommodating. Hayley had great communication, always answered my emails and was happy to meet us at the venue when needed. We know that the day was a smooth as it was all thanks to Hayley’s help with the planning – so a big thank you to her! We really enjoyed certain aspects that Eastnor had to offer, that for us made it a winner, such as the number of rooms included in the booking as well as the onsite/ nearby cottages, the exclusive use of the venue for the duration of your wedding and how picture perfect it really is. We ended up hiring 3 of the cottages for the whole weekend of the wedding, and they were all 5 out of 5. They were very comfortable, close by, clean and the prefect place for our family to spend time before and after the wedding. On the day, the team at Eastnor made everything run smoothly and all the notes on the ‘planner’ were bought to life. We do have to give an extra special mention to Steve, who was just wonderful to work with. He seemed as genuinely happy as we did and just knew all the right things to say and do. He was also a massive help the day before the wedding ensuring everything was set up. All of our friends and family have said to us how amazing Steve and the rest of the team were! I cannot remember the other staff members names who was with us on the day (sorry!) but every single person from the bar staff, the team with Steve, the evening staff and the staff at breakfast the next morning were great. The food at Eastnor was delicious, we choose a fairly ‘simple’ menu and we were still blown away with the quality of the food. We choose to have Cornish Pasties in the evening, and again these were amazing, many drunken guests came to find us on the evening of the wedding to tell us how good they were. We felt so cared for, looked after and valued by Eastnor Castle from the first visit in 2018 to the wedding day in 2021! As a summary, if you are thinking of booking Eastnor Castle as your wedding venue, we would highly recommend, if we could rate it higher than 5 stars we would!

One of the best days of our lives
Eastnor Castle was the venue for our daughter's wedding on 3rd October 2020. Despite the rain and the Covid-19 restrictions this was one of the best days of our lives. Having attended the wonderful Marriage Service at St John the Baptist Church, Eastnor we arrived at the Castle for the reception. The staff made us extremely welcome, the rooms were immaculately laid out and the whole Castle was lovely and warm. Two roaring log fires greeted us as we arrived and lasted the whole afternoon and evening. The food was absolutely delicious - beautifully presented and nice and hot - and the staff were always very helpful and attentive. After the reception, we retired to our rooms which were all very different in design but equally warm and comfortable. A good night's sleep was had by all. We had breakfast the following morning and again the choice was excellent - there was something for everyone. If you are looking for a wedding venue - Eastnor Castle is absolutely stunning, you simply must take a look. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
