Chiddingstone Castle can be exclusively yours for your wedding day, We close the Castle and the grounds to the public, so that we can focus all our attention on you and your party.
Three separate areas are licensed for ceremonies making the Castle a fantastic venue all year round. The Orangery in the grounds is ideal for summer months, whilst the splendour of the Great Hall, or the White Rose Drawing Room, make enchanting spaces that don't rely on the British weather.
The Castle is able to accommodate a range of guest numbers:
During the pandemic, we are offering intimate wedding packages for 30 or under at a huge 50% discount on the venue hire, till the end of March 2021 on a Saturday, or till October '21 for Thursday or Friday bookings. Perfect for anyone wishing to marry now and save the party for the first anniversary. Contact us for details.
For more elaborate bookings we can accomodate up to 80 to dine in the castle rooms, or we can erect our marquee in the grounds to accomodate larger guest numbers for the wedding breakfast.
We pride ourselvs on our no-corkage policy, which can save each couple £2500 - £3500 and it gives you the opportuntiy to serve the drinks that you have chosen.
The stunning Tudor features of the Castle and uninterrupted views over rolling Kent countryside are a photographer's dream. The Castle is set on the edge of the tranquil Tudor village of Chiddingstone, with an ancient parish nearby should you wish a church service.
At Chiddingstone Castle, every wedding is unique, our experienced team will support you through every stage of planning and look after you on the day.

Viewing of chiddingstone castle as a potential venue for an Asian wedding
I viewed chiddingstone castle as a potential wedding venue for my Asian hindu and civil ceremonies. The castle is set in a beautiful area in Kent with vast greenery giving an idyllic picturesque view. Definitely a hidden gem!
I met with Natalie, whom I have to say was one of the most helpful, friendly and passionate people. She was very accommodating and genuinely wanted to make our day as special as we wanted it to be.
From my discussion with Natalie, the venue was able to accommodate all our needs and answer my queries especially with regards to the religious ceremony. The venue had multiple rooms and a lovely garden, which we discussed on how we could use the spaces to their potential for the day. The venue allowed external catering.
Natalie went above and beyond, even in being able to offer to help us arrange accommodation locally and speaking to the registrars to ensure that the day could be scheduled to the times we wanted.
The only reason that we sadly did not choose this beautiful venue was that due to the disability of one my close relatives and having quite a few elderly relatives attending; my partner and I realised a venue which offered onsite accommodation would be required.
Definitely worth viewing as my photos do not do it justice!Sent on 09/11/2020

The perfect day :)
We got married at Chiddingstone Castle in September 2019. It was such a special day and we would whole heartedly recommend the venue to anyone considering having their wedding there. The castle and grounds were beautiful, providing an amazing backdrop for our photos. Natalie and her team worked tirelessly to create the day that we wanted, ensuring everything went smoothly and creating an unforgettable experience. The day really exceeded our expectations and we are both so grateful for everything Natalie and her team did to help us pull it together. Thank you :)Sent on 17/09/2020

Amazingly helpful and supportive team!
The Chiddingstone Castle team were great throughout the whole process, from our initial visit to the venue to the day itself! Having a dedicated wedding coordinator gave us a single point of contact for our queries which were always acknowledged and responded to swiftly in a professional yet friendly way (no matter how small).Sent on 20/09/2020
The team were in regular contact with all our suppliers throughout and this was invaluable in the weeks leading up to the wedding as well as on the day itself. It made such a difference to know that we didn't need to worry about coordinating cake, drink and flower deliveries or decorating as this was all taken care of by the staff really enabling us to fully enjoy our day.
Chiddingstone Castle's reply:It's great to hear that we helped take some of the pressure off your shoulders. There is so much to think about when planning a wedding, it's no problem for us to contact your suppliers and good communication always make planning more straightforward.
