Full Description
Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire is a magnificent medieval fortress, exclusively yours for you to have the day you have always dreamed about! Your wedding at Berkeley Castle will be unique and tailored to you and your fiancee, our friendly professional wedding coordinators will guide and advise you every step of the way, from your very first meeting through to the big day itself. Whether you choose to host a civil ceremony in our grand Great Hall seating upto 130 guests or marry in a more intimate ceremony in the romantic Long Drawing Room for 70, walk down the aisle amongst the magical backdrop of Berkeley Castle. There is no set way to host a wedding at the Castle, only many enchanted spots to enjoy. Beautiful views await you while you are served drinks on the Gun Terrace and Lower Lawns, while the terraces boast wonderful rose boarders on the way to our tranquil Lily pond. Live music is welcomed so why not arrange for live music to set the scene for your drinks reception. Thinking of an autumn or winter wedding? The Drawing Rooms offer a wonderfully romantic spot with roaring fires to warm your guests. Guided Tours of the Castle are a fantastic way to break the ice between your guests or entertain them whilst you sneak off for some private photos, plus they are complimentary and can be arranged at one of the meetings with your wedding coordinator prior to the big day. Invite upto 130 of your closest family and friends to help celebrate your marriage in our Great Hall for your Wedding Breakfast. With a vaulted ceiling, striking tiled flooring and stunning stained glass windows, sit back and soak in the day while our caterers tempt you with all manner of delicious cuisine, with menu's carefully created by you and your fiancee alongside the expert team at Napier Catering. Dance the night away with your guests before being whisked away to Blossom Cottage, the honeymoon suite, with a tasty champagne breakfast waiting for you in the morning.
