The best day of our lives !
If you want a 5 star wedding that is like a fairy tale then this is your venue! Hever are extremely professional and accommodating for all our needs. After visiting the wedding show case day we instantly fell in love! No other venue compares to Hever. Our wedding was the Italian garden wedding with the reception in the Guthrie Pavillion. Our guests were were commenting and saying it was the best wedding ever. Our wedding planner Sophie gave us all the solutions to overcome our large seating plan and dance floor requests. The staff and food are all 5 star no job was ever a trouble. We felt like royalty.

The most perfect location and team
We had exclusive use of the castle for 24 hours and it was a dream come true for the bride and groom. The whole wedding party stayed in the luxury bed and breakfast so it was wonderful all being together under 1 roof. The Tulip Honeymoon suite is really large which makes it perfect for the bridal party to get ready together and it looks beautiful in photographs before the ceremony. The team at Hever are extremely friendly, polite and accommodating. They made the whole experience extremely stress free for us.

The wedding went perfectly !
The wedding went perfectly and it was largely down to the helpfulness of your staff and the team. Please can you extend our gratitude to the whole team for all their hard work and help. I realise now that I may have overcomplicated all of the arrangements by over organising every part of the children's activities and the like, so your team coped with my pedantic organisation really well! Everything went so well.We cant believe how lucky we were with the weather too!

We had an awesome time at Hever!
We had an awesome time at Hever, the whole event from the moment Charan and I arrived on the 21st to the 23rd when we left was perfect. There were so many ‘wow’ moments from us and our guests it was just how we planned it. Special thanks to you for your support through the planning process, to Paul for his Master of Ceremonies duties and to Steve for his front of house duties, you made us and all of our guests feel very special.
