COVID-19 Update
During the current 2021 lockdown, we are offering virtual viewings with our Weddings Coordinator Sarah Albutt. We have had great feedback for our virtual viewings, "Sarah's virtual tour brought the castle to life and gave us a great perspective on the whole venue. You really do feel like you're walking around the castle, can develop a genuine feel for the place and can imagine/start planning for the big day. The tour and Sarah's professionalism & personability were certainly big clinchers in deciding to have our wedding at Hampton Court Castle!" There is limited availability for 2021 wedding dates but we are also taking bookings for 2022 onwards so please call us to discuss booking a virtual viewing on 01568 797676 or email weddings@hamptoncourtcastle.co.uk

Couldn't fault the day at all
We had the most wonderful weekend at Hampton court, and we really couldn't fault the day at all. It all ran so smoothly, and I'm so thankful that we had so little to worry about on the day, so we could just try to take it all in. If we were to do it all over again we'd be back at Hampton Court in a heartbeat.

The staff on the day were incredibly attentive and the whole weekend was a seamless experience
The impeccable grounds and rooms formed the perfect weekend and we were delighted to be blessed with incredible weather. The courtyard was the perfect spot for the ceremony but knowing we could use the chapel (also beautiful) if the weather didn’t hold gave us a huge level of comfort. The staff on the day were incredibly attentive and the whole weekend was a seamless experience

You can only feel its magic
The venue speaks for itself on how utterly fabulous it is, but to wake up as a bride in the bridal suite in this castle is something I can’t put into words, you can only feel its magic

It was the most amazing and magical day
We considered ourselves incredibly lucky just to have such an amazing venue, but the care and attention your team gave us was exceptional. From putting us in contact with some amazing suppliers (florist, photographer, cake maker) to the chef being so accommodating with such an amazing menu and all the staff who helped make the day proceed without a glitch. It was the most amazing and magical day and we can’t thank you enough for making it so special and surpassing all our expectations

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A gorgeous couple from Brazil, the bride was Brazilian and the groom English. It was such a romantic wedding and the weather for the ceremony in the Castle Courtyard couldn’t have been better. They had lots of live music, including a small band playing in the Arkwright Courtyard after the meal on the Friday night. There were lots of little Brazilian touches with gorgeous flowers and colours. They made really good use of the venue and had great guests. It was such a fun wedding to be part of.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Try and enjoy the planning process and not get too many others involved - it’s your day.

A pretty sweet cart built by the bride’s father especially for the wedding.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Breathtaking, romantic, historic, serene and flexible.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Too many to choose from! If I really had to choose then perhaps the maze or the waterfall.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Olympic medal winner, Laura Deas whose wedding was then featured in Hello magazine.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Chase Gin & Tonic Cured Salmon, Pickled Lemon, Cucumber & Dill Mayonnaise

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Well, less of a midnight treat, more of an evening buffet treat! I love the cheese board.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Probably its exclusivity. Being able to stay in the castle and have it all to yourself is quite a unique experience.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

I think it is our experience of creating a day that works for each individual couple. We spend a lot of time working through ideas and details to make sure their day flows well and everyone enjoys themselves. The venue itself is quite flexible, we have had weddings here in all seasons and the most stunning opportunities for photographs. We’re lucky to be able to host such amazing weddings.
