Full Description
This splendid Georgian mansion has a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces available for your big day. From the initial planning stages to the final moments of your special day, our dedicated events team will be on hand to ensure that everything runs smoothly. The castle's state rooms are available for ceremonies, dinners and receptions throughout the year and can accommodate up to 120 for a ceremony, up to 80 for a seated dinner and up to 120 for an evening (non-dancing) reception. If a small, intimate wedding is more your thing, why not consider a romantic winter wedding inside the castle? When the gardens are sleepy and the leaves are frosty, the castle is as vibrant as ever with its opulent golds and lively reds and greens. It's a dreamy winter wedding venue that's always alive with romance. In the Spring and Summer months, why not make the most of the castle's stunning formal landscapes gardens which have breath-taking photo opportunities aplenty; with peaceful woodlands, meandering waterways, meadows and lawns. Of course, we can’t promise clear blue skies and uninterrupted sunshine – but thanks to our stunning marquee sites, you can rest assured that your big day will make a big impact, come rain or shine! The West Terrace and South Lawn Marquee Sites can accommodate up to 200 or 350 guests and both are licensed for wedding ceremonies. Help us to understand your vision, and we’ll help you make the most of this grand and gracious venue.
