Rockingham Castle Full Description
Civil wedding ceremonies & partnerships, can be held in the Great Hall between 10am and 6pm. If you are considering a church blessing, the beautiful Rockingham parish church, St Leonard’s, stands in the castle grounds just a short walk away. Consent for the use of the church is by separate arrangement with the parish vicar. After the ceremony, you are welcome to use the formal gardens and grounds for photography. During this time, your guests may be entertained at a drinks reception in the Panel Room or inside Walker’s House, which is part of the Castle and close at hand for guests to be called for photographs as required. Alternatively, if the weather is suitable drinks can be served on the Terraced Lawn or the Courtyard with the backdrop of the Castle & stunning views over the Welland Valley. For a full reception Walker’s House is available. We can seat up to 76 guests and with an evening buffet can cater for 120. Walker’s House has a dining area, and separate bar and dance floor. We have excellent caterers with a range of menu options from relaxed and formal catering plus an wide range of wines for use with our table licence. A selection of menus & a drinks list is contained in our information pack. Should you wish to have more space, possibly for a bigger party after the ceremony, a marquee can be attached to Walker’s House within the courtyard of the castle at an additional cost. - Please ask for further details.

The most beautiful venue of our dreams
I love Rockingham Castle. Not only is it steeped in history, it’s beautiful inside and out, the ground are stunning, it can be “yours” for one day. And that day, was the best day of our lives. The team at Rockingham are what makes it a beautiful place. Emma and all of her colleagues go above and beyond to ensure your wedding is, quite literally, perfect. We could not have had the perfect day we did without them. They are utter professionals and care so much to make sure your day is everything you dream of, and beyond. Our families and friends have all commented on how well everything flowed on our day, nothing was too much trouble and many have said it was “the best wedding I’ve ever been to”. The caterers the castle use are exquisite. We had so many compliments from family and friends about the food, the canapés and the incredible attentiveness of the staff. If you want a perfect day, and a venue that will stun your guests with its uniqueness and charm: Rockingham Castle is the venue for you.

Predictably gorgeous wedding venue, highly recommended
We got married at Rockingham Castle in August 2021 and we are so very pleased we did so. Obvious things: the venue is stunning - this includes the panelled room for the ceremony, Walker House for our reception and the grounds and entrance. The catering was really lovely and the requests we made to accommodate our guests with dietary requirements were all considered. I also requested non-alcoholic drinks for the day for myself (the bride) and as an option at the bar during the reception and these were also no problem. Emma, who was our main contact there, was incredibly helpful and supportive with our arrangements, preferences and - most importantly - the smooth running of the day itself. Her team and everyone we encountered at the venue was so lovely and I would happily recommend Rockingham Castle to anyone wanting to get married in a stunning, historic and timeless venue.

We can't thank you enough...
We can't thank you enough for your time, dedication & effort that went into our wedding on Saturday. Despite how beautiful Rockingham is & how long we've wanted to celebrate our wedding here... It was all of the staff that made it such a memorable day for both our guests and us.

We'd like to say a huge thanks...
We'd like to say a huge thanks to you and all of your team at Rockingham Castle for helping to make our wedding so magical and memorable. It was incredibly stressful trying to organise everything from so far away, five hours behind you, and with the occasional blips in comms channels, but you made our lives much easier. Everyone who helped along the way from Carol who bent over backwards in helping me navigate Anglo-American banking issues, to the amazing team of guides who enthralled our guests during tours, to the men installing the ramps ensuring Kate's step dad and my aunt had no accessibility issues, to the man who held a mirror for Kate so she could adjust her headdress while we waited for our confetti moment... all of these people and many more, each played a part in making our wedding day an experience we will never forget and we appreciate them all. And to you personally, Chantelle, we couldn't have wished for someone more diligent, involved and engaged with your job. You managed my OCD effortlessly and made both Kate and myself feel like we were the only people on earth! We will be forever grateful for everything you did. Clearly it is much more than a job for you! Rockingham is very lucky to have you and so were we!

Perfect day in the perfect venue
From the moment we were considering this venue, right through to the last photos were taken and we moved on to our reception venue, the staff at Rockingham Castle were amazing. Katie (Callaghan I think) was incredibly helpful. When we first went to view the castle, and on every occasion we visited after she was available for any and all questions. The day before we were able to get in and set up our own personal decorations which the team were there to help us with. When it came to the way the day would run, the music choices and playlist, and how everything would come together I had complete faith in the girls. On the day itself, apart from wedding nerves I wasn’t nervous or worried about the day itself. And everything ran incredibly smoothly and seamlessly. Thank you so so much. I would absolutely recommend this venue for anyone looking for something incredibly special for an incredibly special day.
