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.

A fantastic day!
Venue Service

By Rachael & Tim, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

Now that life is slowly returning to normal, we just wanted to thank you, in particular, and your team, for making Rachael and Tim's wedding such a memorable experience. The whole day was so enjoyable and ran so smoothly, that it is difficult to know how things could have gone better. We also realise how much hard work goes on behind the scenes to achieve such a level of excellence, so thank you; and for marshalling us and our guests, and acting as MC, so kindly and effectively - a difficult balancing act that you appear to achieve effortlessly! We have had so many compliments about the venue, you, your team and the whole day, which should be shared by you. Many thanks once again for a fantastic day.

A dream come true!
Venue Service

By Kari & Sam, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2019

We just wanted to say from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so so much for helping to make our wedding day a dream come true. It was the best day of our lives and we couldn't be happier with how it all went, and your organisation and support made that happen, so easily and without anything feeling like hard work, or that anything was too much trouble to ask. Everyone is still talking about the wedding (which must be a good thing!), and everyone was impressed with the venue, food and everything! Berkeley Castle will always hold the most special place in our hearts.

The most perfect day!
Venue Service

By Kezsa & Dan, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Apr 2019

Where do we begin? We have so much to thank you all for, for giving us the most perfect wedding day we could have ever hoped for. You took all the stress away from us and made sure everything leading up to, and on the day, went according to plan. Berkeley Castle will forever have a special place in our hearts.

Please let me express my thanks and admiration for ensuring that we all had a splendid day. I know that these things are not always straight forward, but you did a very fine job. The castle looked wonderful and the food was lovely. We shan't hesitate to recommend Berkeley Castle events.

We would not change a single thing!
Venue Service

By Natalie & Guy, on 13 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Feb 2019

We both wanted to say thank you for everything you did to help Saturday be such a tremendous success! Whether it was shepherding ushers, nudging me to be in the right place at the right time or coordinating performers and catering staff, you never failed to inspire limitless confidence that everything was well under control. And that’s before we go into the endless ways you helped us put the day together in the weeks and months before the Big Day. Natalie and I were absolutely delighted with how the day went and it seems from the feedback that our guests had a pretty good time too! In fact a few of them still seem to be in a state dumbfounded awe ?? We were reminiscing yesterday and concluded that if we were to rerun the day we wouldn’t change a single thing and that is in no small part down to the amazing guidance we had from you all along the way. It helps that Berkeley is a stunning venue, Napier are superb catered and Virtual events are absolute pros, but none of it would have as well without the glue that held it all together and that was your expert coordination skills. We will be on a high from this day for a very long time, and are trying to find excuses to relive it. But until we can find a legitimate one, I hope our paths may cross again if we find ourselves back in Berkeley for a weekend.

What can we say, Alex & I are still on cloud 9. We want to say a huge thankyou for EVERYTHING you did for us and making our wedding day the most magical one could ever imagine. You all went above & beyond to make the day run smoothly and to make it the easiest day for Alex & I. We have had so many wonderful comments about the Castle and how magical the venue and people were. We agree! Thank you so much. Lots of love Rachel & Alex

The day was absolutely perfect!
Venue Service

By Samantha & Gareth, on 13 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2018

I am writing to say a massive thank you to you and the whole team at Berkeley for our wedding a couple of weeks ago. The day was absolutely perfect. You and the staff at Berkeley were absolutely incredible and made the day one to remember for all the right reasons. Thank you so much for looking after us so well and all our guests. Special thanks to you - you have taken us through each element so well and been kind and professional throughout. You also put me at ease on the day when I was very nervous! We can't thank you all enough! We have such fond memories of the day and the Castle Best Wishes Sam & Gareth

Outstanding, a dream come true
Venue Service

By laura entwistle, on 13 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

Our wedding was like a dream. It took 18 months of planning and to plan for so long I was nervous the wedding wouldn't live up to my expectations but it more than exceeded expectations. From the start Jenny was amazing, as soon as she showed us round we were sold, she was always quick to answer my many questions & when she was away Pippa was always there to respond. On the day, everything ran so smoothly, the setup was beautiful and everything I dreamed of and all the staff were so helpful. Jenny was always there to make sure everything was perfect. Napier catering were also amazing, the food was divine and some of the recommended vendors such as Berkeley flowers and movers & shakers (cocktail bar) were equally as amazing. The whole day was perfect, I felt like a real princess, thank you so much Berkeley Castle and the whole team. Matt & Laura x x x

Magical Day

Just a short informal thank you to you and your team for a magical day at Hannah and Andy’s Castle on Saturday.

So many happy memories
Venue Service

By Zara & Martin, on 23 May 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Mar 2017

We are just sat at the airport waiting to board for our honeymoon, reflecting on the happy memories from the weekend, there are so many! The food, laughter, sunshine, amazing venue the list goes on and on, oh and the extra/surprise shot, Pippa that you got me during the speech! That definitely wasn't in the speech lol! We both just want to really say thank you, both of you worked so hard and without that we know we would of not had our perfect day. Everybody commented on how impressed they were with the organising of the day and were blown away by the food. Phil seriously set up a restaurant!

Absolutely fantastic!

Thank you SO SO much for everything you and your team did to make our day so special and so perfect! We are still getting gushing reviews from all our friends and family that attended the day and would not have run half as smoothly or been half as amazing without all your hard work, everything was honestly a dream come true!
