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.

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.

Dance the night away with your guests before being whisked away to Blossom Cottage, the honeymoon suite, with a tasty champagne breakfast hamper awaiting you.
