Absolutely blown away
Where do we even begin? A wedding is not just about the wedding day, it’s the whole process, it’s an experience! We were absolutely blown away by every single member of the Warwick Castle Weddings team, from day one right up until our actual wedding day. The whole planning process was unbelievably smooth, the team were so patient, so helpful and so consistent. They went above and beyond. They made our dreams come through. We are just so sad we can’t do it all over again! Thank you for everything

Absolute dream
We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue and a more perfect team to help us organise our wedding. Our wedding was an absolute dream that I wish we could relive again and again. We cannot recommend the castle or it's amazing team enough.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Warwick Castle?

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!
