Your Castle Wedding

Take in the Ceremony Room’s natural daylight which floods through the beautiful long French windows, and admire the soft pastel colours around the room which bring a sense of calm and tranquillity to your ceremony.

After you’ve officially tied the knot, you will celebrate with your wedding party, pose for those ever-lasting photographs and take a sip of your celebration drink.

Your banquet-style wedding breakfast will be served in the largest room in the Castle, the Grand Salon. This room was historically used by Lady Baillie and her esteemed guests of the silver screen, society’s finest and leading influencers, as they partied the night away at lavish weekend parties in the 1930s.


The Salon features breathtaking views across the scenic moat onto the flourishing parklands and a grand 16th-century French Caen stone fireplace, making for a stunning backdrop to your celebrations.


After the toasts, laughs and happy tears, you will head to the opulent 1930s Drawing Rooms, before continuing the wedding festivities with dancing the night away in the Castle Celebrations Room. As the party slows down and carriages arrive for guests, retire to your luxurious Castle bedroom for the night.
