No one will ever top this venue
A stunning venue, live action sword fights and our own private suite in the tower. Truly magical, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The Warwick Castle team helped us to create an amazing day that we will never forget, they took away the stress of planning and were always available to answer our many questions. To quote one of our friends, "no-one will ever top this venue."

Our wedding at the castle was magical. Nothing was too much trouble and they accommodated everything they possibly could. I never imagined I would get married in a castle and this was a dream come true. Our day was wonderful, the entertainment amazing, the food beautiful & the venue stunning. If you want a venue & staff to make you feel special, I certainly recommend Warwick Castle

Thank you Warwick Castle!
In Warwick Castle we initially found good value for money and an amazing place to hold our special day. What we actually got was far above what we were expecting. From the event staff, through to the catering and service staff and even the man with the "big axe", nothing feel short of our expectations which were exceeded in just about every detail. Thank you Warwick Castle!

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A fantastic couple hosted a Harry Potter wedding in our Great Hall! They had planned their day meticulously and the amount of detail was very impressive, they had thought of everything. Each guest had a personalised wand instead of a place card, and the table plan was a huge Marauders map, the list goes on! They even had a banquet style wedding breakfast, with long tables in each house colour.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Your wedding is about you as a couple! Don't feel you need to compromise on what you want to make your guests happy, they'll be delighted to be a part of your day regardless!

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

The groom had his new step-son help make and decorate their wedding cake, without telling him what it was for! They only told their children on the day that they were getting married.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique, Enchanting, Historical, Personal, Impressive

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The Portcullis shot is iconic and a perfect spot whatever the weather. The Peacock Garden when it is in bloom is also beautiful - it's hard to choose!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We regularly have celebs visit the castle but sadly none have hosted their weddings with us!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini beef in Yorkshire puds - so quintessentially British!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

A theatrical Hog Roast is an impressive way to kick back and relax after hours of dancing!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our unique list of entertainment options including fully armoured Knights who spring to life before your guests eyes before duelling in the Great Hall, plus a firebreathing jester, fantastic fireworks displays and enchanting birds of prey shows to name a few.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are most proud of our dedicated and experienced team who are so passionate about the castle and using it to its full potential. They truly make weddings and events a jaw-dropping and unforgettable experience.
