2020 Wedding

We felt the planning and communication was great and straight forward. Everyone we spoke to was helpful and kind and we are grateful for your service and the quick turnaround to make our day happen!
Picking the best part of the day is a tricky one - it was all fantastic from the food, location, weather, customer service that I don't think there was anything we would want to change or have any different.
Overall we're super happy we decided to go ahead this year and get married at Amberley - it was exactly what we wanted and would highly recommend other couples to have their weddings or other events at Amberley!

Thank you so much Dean and team!

Wedding 4th October

Just returned home after our magical Wedding at Amberley Castle. We had exclusive use of the Hotel and our guests stayed in the beautiful rooms.
From start to finish our Wedding co-ordinator, Dean has been absolutely amazing and along with his staff made us and our 41 other guests feel truly special. I stayed there the night before with my daughter and all staff couldn't have been any more attentive, as they were on the day itself from start to finish.
Our food was superb and all our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed being part of our day.
A massive thank you to Dean, the Chefs and all staff who made our day so incredible.
The memories we have will stay with us forever

Wonderful Wedding Day !

I highly recommended this venue.
On Friday (17/05/19) my partner and I got married at Amberley having been together for over 26 years!
The day was totally perfect in every way. A massive thank you to Dean, to Phil and to Piers for ensuring that all our needs(and that of our guests) were met.
The team at Amberley are professional, friendly and approachable; nothing was too much trouble.
You know when you book this venue how stunning the castle and the grounds are; however it is the teams attention to detail that makes your stay perfect in every way. We will return every year to celebrate our anniversary.

Exactly what we wanted

We were looking for something small and all in one place for both ceremony and reception - something that was fitting to the scale of our intimate wedding with 20 guests. The castle surrounding is fairy tale perfection and full of photo opportunities; the ceremony room was the perfect size for us not to feel cramped and was transformed into a beautiful dining room for our evening meal. The team led by Dean our co-ordinator were so supportive and went above and beyond to make our perfect day a reality and were very accommodating for us and our guests. They also had a substantive list of local suppliers for cakes, flowers, photography etc and this was essential to us as we were not local and only had 20 weeks to organise everything. All in all, we were thrilled with our day, as were our guests - especially those who also stayed overnight as guests and joined us for a private breakfast the day after.
