If you are looking for one of the most romantic settings in England, look no further than Hedingham Castle. Set in 160 acres of formal gardens, lakes and woods, the 900 year old Norman Keep provides a stunning centre point to your day. Ceremonies take place on the majestic Banqueting Floor of the Castle, with receptions in the permanent Marquee in the gardens of the Georgian Mansion House. Smaller receptions can also be held in the Castle itself, and the Garden Cottage is available for preparation and for the couple’s first night.
