..breath taking, beautiful and truly romantic
“Friday 13th - Lucky for some. Hedingham Castle is the most breath taking, beautiful and truly romantic wedding venue that any bride could wish for. As the sun shone on the castle, we couldn't of imagined getting married any where else but here. The day was wonderful, with one guest describing its as 'layers of a cake', with each layer is another surprise. First we exchanged vows in the candle lit castle surrounded by our family and friends. Next we took our first walk as husband and wife over the beautiful bridge, surrounded by rose petal confetti. We were then greeted into the Main House, with a glass of champagne by the lovely staff, where we relaxed on the lawn, with a string quartet playing. We then made our way into the Marquee where we ate, drank and danced the night away. What we would give to do it all over again. I cannot thank the team at Hedingham enough, for making every single part of our dream come true. We would like to thank all of our suppliers for going above and beyond to make everything as we imagined. Thank you, Charlotte & Joe Bricknell “
