About Berkeley Castle

Berkeley Castle, Berkeley
Gloucestershire, GL13 9BQ

Situated in Gloucestershire, Berkeley Castle offers a picturesque setting for your perfect wedding day.

At Berkeley Castle, we believe that no two weddings should be the same and that you deserve to have the day you’ve always dreamed of. Our experienced and friendly wedding co-ordinators, Pippa & Jenny, are on hand from your first visit through to the big day itself to ensure your day is perfect.

With exclusive use available to you, the whole venue & grounds are yours for the day with freedom as to how you wish to use the fantastic, medieval Castle. Whether you want to host a drinks reception and take in the stunning views from our Gun Terrace or relax by the roaring fire of the Drawing Room with live music playing, it is the ideal venue in every season.

If you’ve always had your heart set on a church service, the stunning St. Mary’s Church is just a stones throw from the Castle. The parish vicar would be delighted to meet with you and discuss a potential service at St. Mary’s.

The Castle is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in several rooms. Our charming Drawing Room is ideal for a smaller, more intimate ceremony while the spectacular Great Hall comfortably houses upto 130 guests. The Castle can accommodate 130 for a seated wedding breakfast and 180 for the evening’s celebrations.

We have 2 beautiful houses for up to 40 guests to stay over 2 nights (or even longer) so you can enjoy a whole weekend of celebrations.

Absolutely perfect!
Venue Service

By Lorna & Harry, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2019

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything yesterday, it was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have hoped for a more magical day. You (and your team) must have worked so hard yesterday and yet it felt so smooth and calm - we are so grateful for everything. The venue, Brook House, Blossom cottage it was all absolutely perfect.

We can't thank Pippa and her team enough for making sure ur day ran smoothly! We had the most incredible day and all our guests couldn't get over how beautiful the Castle was. Berkeley Castle will always hold a special place in our hearts.

What an amazing day in a wonderful setting

What a fantastic day. We feel very privileged to have been in a Castle with so much history. Roxy & Matt's happiness was written on their faces, such joy was contagious. We could not have wished for more, thank you so much.

I’d just like to say a big thank you, you were absolutely amazing from start to finish with everything concerning our wedding. It was magical and we cannot thank you enough.

Best venue ever!
Venue Service

By Sara & Paul, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Oct 2019

Words cannot describe how amazing our special day was for both Sara and I. From the word go everything was just perfect, after arriving on the Thursday and being faced with film set chaos to see it looking flawless just hours later was a sign of just how good you guys really are & how going the extra mile for you guys is no problem at all. Jenny, every time we needed you, you were there with your Walkie talkie and the problem was dealt with there and then, seamlessly. We've had almost our whole list of guests expressing that was by far the best venue they've ever been too and that it was also the best wedding they've ever attended and that's a testament to all of you behind the scenes (one guest said "the only way you could beat that venue is by booking Buckingham palace") As for us, our minds we're blown with the perfection we received from Berkeley and Napier catering. Not one thing went wrong whatsoever, so many thanks to people behind the scenes, both from the castle and from Napier, thank you all so much.

An unforgettable weekend.

There are no words to sum up how thankful we are to you and everyone at the Castle for making our wedding day so perfect. We both had the best day of our lives. Everything went perfectly and the hall was so beautiful.

What a fantastic venue!
Venue Service

By Charlotte & Will, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2019

Thank you so much for finding us a space to hold the wedding this year. What a fantastic location and such amazing weather. You organised it all so smoothly. Honestly you do not make it seem like a job! You made it so special for us all. I had not realised how much goes on behind the scenes. Your coordination and advise were brilliant. Charlotte found your knowledge and experience extremely useful. Charlotte and William are so very happy, they were able to have a perfect day.

The perfect wedding
Venue Service

By Tessa & Sam, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2019

I finally have a free minute to write to you both and say how grateful Sam and I are for everything last weekend (and the 18 months leading up to it!). We could not have had a more perfect wedding, and we are so thankful to you both for going above and beyond to make that happen. We cannot believe how smoothly everything ran, and you did such a fantastic job managing our vendors and keeping our guests in line. So many people told us it was by far the best wedding they’ve been to.

The best venue ever!

Thank you so much for all of your help on Friday! The wedding was such a blast and went so smoothly thanks to you and the team! It was absolutely perfect and we cannot thank you enough. Everyone at the wedding loved it - we’ve had so many people get in touch to say it was the best venue they’d been to.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Venue Service

By Cherry & Adam, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

Thank you so much for everything! I can't tell you how many compliments you got and I honestly believe we wouldn't have pulled it off half as well without you being there. Everything and everyone was amazing and we can't thank you enough, it wouldn't have been the same without you! Thank you, thank you, thank you xxxx
