Highclere Castle is a romantic wedding venue where dreams can be turned into reality. Weddings are held throughout the year and the Castle and surrounding Gardens are available exclusively for your special day.The dramatic exterior which bears more than a resemblance to the Houses of Parliament was designed by Sir Charles Barry and is complemented by a striking interior design. Whilst rich in treasures Highclere retains the warmth and welcome of a family home. The beautiful grounds and Castle combine to create an unrivalled atmosphere in which you and your guests can enjoy excellent food, fine wine and a friendly professional service.Stunning photographic settings can be found within the Castle, Follies and Gardens. The magnificent back drop of the Castle exterior, with its famous Cedars of Lebanon in the foreground, presents spectacular photo opportunities.The tomb of the Tutankhamun is one of the most dazzling archaeological discoveries ever made. The two names linked with this historic find in 1922 are those of Carnarvon and Carter. During your drinks reception you and your guests could enjoy a private tour of the collection of Egyptian artefacts located in the cellars of Highclere.

ExemplaryWe would like to convey our sincere thanks to you for providing an amazing service for us on our wedding day. The whole day ran seemlessly & efficiently and we couldn''t have asked for a better team to be behind us for a more perfect day.
The waiter service was exemplary and all our guests commented on their efficiency and discretion throughout the day.
Please also pass on our thanks and appreciation to the chef. The food was delicious and again everyone commented on how lovely it was. We couldn''t believe that it was cooked and tasted exactly as it had at the tasting!
We had a wonderful day, thank you.

Phenomenal settingWe wanted to write to thank you for the exceptional day we had at Highclere Castle. The setting is phenomenal without seeming too imposing or formal - we didn''t want the wedding to be too stuffy. The staff from the beginning to the end of the day worked to the upmost of professional standards, ensuring everyone was well looked after, including our elderley guests, which was most appreciated by us. We simply cannot imagine how the day could have been bettered by Highclere and its staff.

A wonderful dayWe just wanted to thank all of the staff at Highclere for making our wedding such a wonderful day. Everything ran so smoothly, it was like a military operation! From the moment I arrived, getting ready in the bridal suite upstairs, to the reception and wedding breakfast, it was all so amazing. The service was faultless and the professionalism of the staff made it seem like they did this every day of the year! Thanks once again for all your help.

Its really a testament to you that our day turned out so beautifully and we were fully able to enjoy it knowing that you and the Highclere staff were in control at all times.

Magical day with memories to cherishWe got back from honeymoon last night but wanted to take the time to write a special note to you and the team at Highclere.
We had an amazing, magical day and the memories will stay with us forever. The care and attention that you personally gave to me on the day, I will never forget your kindness. You kept me calm, you helped with touch ups of make up and you even helped me get out of my dress to go to the bathroom! This was not just doing your job, this was going the extra mile and I can''t thank you enough.
So many people commented on the venue and how beautiful it was but also commented on the service and how smoothly it ran. The food, the wine, the waiting staff, everytghing was 110% and I have never experienced service like it. I have run many events with work and very few live up to the quality Highclere gave us.
Before I got married everyone warned me to expect things to go wrong, but everything went to plan. The difference about my wedding was that I had the most organised, efficient and kind team possible.
Thank you once again for making our day so magical.

Tara and Matt had such a wonderful time. They enjoyed themselves more than they could believe. It was perfect.
Thank you for all your help and patience. All the Castle staff were exemplary.
From the original moment we came to Highclere just to look around, this wedding has been a joy for us to organise.
The food was fantstic. Please thank chef again for us. The wines were great too.
Tara and I loved being in the room with the girls in the morning. I enjoyed watching you set everything up. The place was perfect in every way and made Tara feel like a princess.
All the guests were very complimentary about the food, the venue, the staff and the atmosphere.

Perfect DayJust a quick note to say thank you to you and your team for doing such a wonderful job at my brothers wedding. It was a fantastic event and was enjoyed by so many, we''ve had lots of very positive comments from friends and family. In large part, that was down to your planning and organisation, and your calm efficiency on the day. We can be hard to please, I hope we didn''t come across that way, you did a cracking job. Thank you to you and your team. Food, service and direction all perfect.
May see you back there in the future at mine if I make it that far!

Professional serviceWe would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and your team for the very professional service during our daughters wedding on 8th May. All the staff were so well trained and yet the atmosphere conveyed a friendliness which made our guests feel very comfortable. The attention to detail, which did not flag through a very long day, was immeasureable and the meal was absolutely superb. A very sincere thank you to everyone
