Other venues we went to just couldn’t compare!
I found Hampton Court Castle by accident. A year before we got engaged, the venue came up in my line of work. One of my colleagues had been there, so I looked it up online and noticed that they host weddings. I kept thinking about it when we got engaged and I definitely wanted to view it. Other venues we went to couldn’t compare and that was just to the photos of Hampton Court Castle! When we finally went to our viewing, we only got as far as the driveway and we knew it was the one. Even before we got inside! Our experience getting married at Hampton Court Castle was a dream come true. We couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue and I will never be able to get over the fact that we were married there. It was everything and more.

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

FAQ

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.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

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.
