Full Description
At Kimbolton Castle we are proud to offer not only the perfect setting, but also your selected menu prepared to the highest standard. Couples are invited to tie the knot in the State Apartments, which vary in size and character and contain a fine collection of Pellegrini murals. You are certain to enjoy the stunning and tranquil environment of the Castle which dates back to the late Stuart period, the perfect place to say 'I do'. After the ceremony has taken place, invite your guests to enjoy reception drinks in the Castle Courtyard, with a modern bar and taking in the stunning landscape. The Whitehall is the stunning setting for your Wedding Breakfast, flooded with natural daylight, spectacular features include access to the impressive Portico steps, offering views down the mall and grounds. The Castle sits in our 120 acres of parkland and fields which include two small lakes, woodland and open areas and, together with the Castle itself, make an idyllic setting for your celebration and a spectacular backdrop for your photographs. The on-site catering and events team will work with you to create delicious food for your wedding day. Menus are expertly prepared and beautifully presented, giving you and your guests a spectacular dining experience. Every element of the day is bespoke and tailored to your needs, from the more formal wedding breakfast, to theatrical street food, barbecues, canapés and cocktails. As the sun goes down, it’s time to dance the night away, perhaps even enjoying the courtyard outside and wandering in to the beautiful grounds. A variety of local accommodation is available in Kimbolton, and the surrounding villages, including the Landmark Trust's 17th Century Warren House, which enjoys fine views of Kimbolton Castle.

It was an invaluable opportunity to get to know our photographer, even better we could practice for the day itself, choosing our favorite locations around the grounds and within the Castle. www.cambridgeshireweddingphotography.com

50th Anniversary
I just wanted to thank you for everything on Saturday evening. The event totally met our expectation, or exceeded it, in every area. We thought everyone we came into contact with at the castle, both beforehand, and during the evening were very friendly, very helpful and totally accommodating to any minor changes. We enjoyed it immensely and got nothing but positive remarks from all of our guests. Thank you again, your assistance and management was much appreciated.

Please will you pass on our thanks to the Headmaster, Mr Valletta and the catering staff for looking after the Banks and Peck family so very well on Saturday afternoon following the Service of Thanksgiving for my father Claude. My father would have been thrilled that the School were able to accommodated his wishes to host the ‘wake’ and it couldn’t have gone better; the food was delicious and the dining halls were the perfect venue with the sun shining through the glass frontage encouraging guests to stand outside and see the School in its best light.

Memories that will last forever
We were married at Kimbolton Castle last summer and it was a day we will never forget. It is a very special and unique place- especially in the sunshine. The State Room doors were opened wide and our guests spilled out into the courtyard and down the Mall, exploring the grounds and enjoying the entire estate. Many selfies were taken! The building is lovely, but the staff made the day- in the build-up, they planned with us and patiently reassured us; I swear they could read our minds and knew exactly how to make the day our idiosyncratic version of Perfect. We quickly realised we were in superb hands and on the day we could just relax with our friends and family in a surreal happiness that all our hopes had actually come true. We have memories of a very elegant, sunny, happy and unique day. And forevermore, we can always say we got married in a Castle!

The Groom arrived by Helicopter, which was dependent on the weather that morning and the Bride arrived by Horse and Carriage. A carousel was booked for the evening, together with fireworks. The perfect ending to a magical day.
