The Ceremonial Hall
The Ceremonial Hall is a beautiful oval room with grand double doors to the rear and smaller traditional entrance to the side. This room is licensed for ceremonies and can comfortably seat up to 100 guests. You can also seat 70 guests in a traditional seating style for a formal wedding breakfast.
State Rooms, Queen Victoria Rooms & Dining Room
On the first floor within the main building, there is an enfilade of 3 large interconnecting State Rooms known as the Aphrodite Drawing Room, the Galba Drawing Room, and the Library, which are perfect for enjoying reception drinks and canapes and for after-dinner relaxation. The Castle Dining Room also on the first floor can seat 50 guests for a formal wedding breakfast. There are two further interconnecting rooms on the first floor which guests are also encouraged to use, Queen Victoria’s Rooms, which can be used for a variety of purposes.
Our stunning terrace is also licensed for ceremonies and offers the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding. This is also another delightful space to enjoy your reception with guests spilling onto the lawns. The balcony and staircases which adorn the back of the Castle link directly back into the State Rooms so guests are free to go back and forth as they explore the property.
The marquee would be situated on the South Lawns of the Castle and would be the location for the formal meal for the day. The marquee has a fully clear wall to the front to allow guests to enjoy the elegant façade of the building as well as let in lots of natural light. The setting is very neutral with an ivory lining and light carpet. The standard structure can accommodate up to 120 guests for dining and larger marquees are also available by arrangement.
Percy & Mary Shelley Bridal Suite
The Bridal Suite, named in honour of the great Romantic couple who owned the castle originally, is perfect for getting ready the morning of the wedding. The room is filled with natural light, a beautiful imperial-sized bed with a fantastic domed canopy and exquisite French furniture. There are also comfortable sofas and statement furniture offering the perfect backdrop for pre-wedding photos. Many brides find the bridal suite, which also has a large en-suite bathroom with an elegant roll-top bath and shower facilities, the ideal setting for preparing for their wedding - with their bridesmaids, hairdressers, make-up artists, and manicurists on hand to share in the occasion and the prosecco.

A perfect wedding reception venue
Our son and new wife had their wonderful wedding reception at Castle Goring on Saturday. As parents we were very impressed with the wedding venue and felt we must share our thoughts.Sent on 22/07/2019
The whole experience of organising the wedding from the initial meeting with Lady C and her son Dima back in October to now has been superb. They were professional and accommodating to all our requests but most of all they made us feel extremely welcome to share their home on such a special occasion.
We dressed the venue with many accessories and lots of greenery the day before the wedding to make it personal to us.
On arrival at Castle Goring after a church service in Brighton we went upstairs to the beautiful lounge area for welcome drinks and had organised a pianist to play romantic music. As the sun was shining, some guests flowed out onto the balcony and into garden to make a wonderful atmosphere.
We had about 120 guests so had opted for the marquee in the garden which was perfect. We used Super Events for the catering and their food and service was exceptional all through the event.
The Bridal Suite was used during the day for the bride/bridesmaids needs.
In the evening we organised a band to play in the Dance Room and another 100 or so guests turned up to celebrate with us. We had a bar in the foyer and marquee which worked well.
It was great to have exclusivity of this amazing venue and we highly recommend Castle Goring to others.
Thank you Lady C and Dima for letting us use your home and making our son and daughter-in-law's wedding so special and a day that we will always remember.

The Perfect Wedding Day
We instantly fell in love with Castle Goring from the moment we took a cab up the driveway and the impressive house came into view. Beyond the beauty of the location, the hosts were incredibly helpful in giving tours, answering questions and setting up for our big day. This venue is great value for money compared to other castles we visited, as we were encouraged to use the various spaces for different parts of the wedding. We used the ceremonial hall, the gardens (with marquee), the state rooms, the foyer and the bridal suite, and guests loved the experience of moving about and exploring an historic home. Our day was beautifully managed by the wonderful hosts, and we were able to just relax and enjoy ourselves. It is obvious that Castle Goring hosts care about relationships and love and don't just see weddings as an industry-this was evidenced by the personal relationships we have now made. We couldn't recommend the venue enough.Sent on 14/08/2019
