Farnham Castle is a stunning, iconic and exclusive multi-award-winning venue for Weddings, set in five acres of beautiful grounds, overlooking the historic, market town of Farnham, on the Surrey and Hampshire border. The Castle boasts Grade I and Grade II Listed Buildings with the most incredible history, and is the perfect destination for couples dreaming of somewhere unique.

Facilities and Capacity:

The possibilities at Farnham Castle are endless, and we’d love to help you create an unforgettable day.

Our flexible approach means that you can choose where your Ceremony takes place, and where your guests dine, celebrate and party. When you book your wedding at Farnham Castle, our wedding venue is exclusively yours - from our historic Lantern Hall, to our elegant Winchester Suite, and from our stunning Great Hall to our magnificent Great Lawn. We also host outdoor ceremonies on our East Lawn, overlooking our White Rose Garden, and if you’d like a Religious Ceremony at Farnham Castle we offer two beautiful Chapels from very different architectural periods.

We are able to host weddings of any size; from intimate weddings for 30 guests, to larger celebrations for over 250, and we have quite literally hosted weddings for couples from all around the world. We also have the best grounds for Marquees, with the most spectacular backdrops and views.

Getting ready on-site has so many benefits, and our ‘Gatehouse’ and ‘Pembroke’ are two perfect suites for you and your wedding party to enjoy being together as you prepare for your day.

Once your celebrations are over, and you have danced the night away in our Great Hall, and enjoyed night caps in our Tindle Bar, your guests will be overjoyed to head to one of our 33 en-suite Castle bedrooms and you will be delighted to reach the tranquility and luxury of our Honeymoon Suite. Join your guests for Breakfast in our Library the following morning to ensure that everyone has celebrated with you until the very last minute.

At Farnham Castle we have our very own team of exceptional in-house chefs, who create the most wonderful Menus using the finest ingredients. We are proud to have our own Kitchen Garden, and also to use many local suppliers. We even have a bespoke ‘Castle sausage’ on the Breakfast Menu.

We offer a range of Dining Menus, with drinks included, in order to cater for every taste and budget. A typical menu for your guests could include a Champagne reception with Canapes, a three-course dining experience, including your choice of carefully selected wines, a surprise course, your toast, and our very popular Dessert Bar. For a late-night snack why not offer your guests Wood-fired Pizzas from our Pizza oven, whilst your entire party enjoys a spectacular Firework display.

Our dream wedding!

From our very first interaction with the team on our first viewing, from the booking process through to the planning of our big day, it was all fantastic.
We were very lucky to work with Gema as our main wedding planner, totally unflappable, calm, organised, all over the detail.
Our wedding day in the stunning venue, bathed in spring sunshine, was delivered flawlessly. We cannot think of one thing we would want differently. Food, service, team, drinks, venue - all 10/10.
Thanks so much Farnham Castle, to Gema and indeed the whole amazing team we interacted with. You literally gave us the best day of our lives.

Lovely venue with fantastic staff!

Farnham Castle was great from start to finish! They helped us through the entire process and were more than happy to answer all our questions - online, over the phone and during our pre wedding meeting. The venue itself looked stunning, both inside and out. The food was amazing and the portion sizes were great. Laura, our assigned wedding specialist, was brilliant! She made sure everything ran like clockwork - we didn't have to think about a thing. She had everything under control and even made sure we didn't miss out on canapes, drinks etc. There was a good selection of drinks at the bar and the service was speedy. We had the best day and would thoroughly recommend Farnham Castle!

The perfect venue

Farnham Castle was THE perfect place to get married. From the stunning location, to the incredible food, to the kind and thoughtful staff, everything went like a dream and was exactly how we imagined it - or maybe even better.

Everyone we spoke to was incredibly supportive and positive and put us at ease, answering all of our questions, making useful suggestions and providing their expertise on the smooth running of the day.

When the day came it was seamless, with the staff at Farnham working tirelessly behind the scenes all day to ensure our guests were comfortable and our vision was enacted.

We cannot recommend them enough!

What a great day!!

While we were only a small group and very much out of season…
The castle put together a great package for us and worked around all our little quirks and demands!
As for the day itself I just sat back and waited for them to tell me what to do and when. It was really relaxing and everything went according to plan and everyone had a great time - we thought it surpassed our expectations.
Food- fabulous.
Setting - fairytale .
Service- second to none.
We all stayed over and had a great breakfast together the next morning.
A wonderful occasion!

Beautiful Venue, poorly organised

The venue is beautiful, the setting is superb. But sadly we ended up being turned away the day before after being promised we could set up, to be turned away but the lady in charge. Our co ordinator was mortified as she was told we could. The same lady shouted at us when we told her we didn’t want a decoration that wasn’t confirmed in writing with our coordinator, or charged for.

The food was amazing, the views incredible. They try and be flexible but the organisation was so poor, we were chasing them constantly for confirmation. Also having to triple check bills as they were often wrong.

I would say if you love the venue, go for it, be prepared though to do a lot of the heavy lifting and also no support.

The Best Day

We got married at Farnham Castle on 27th May and they made our day so special. The venue is absolutely stunning & we were so lucky to have fab weather. Our wedding planner, Jodie, was amazing! She replied to all of my emails/requests so quickly and made everything as simple & easy as possible. On the day, all of the staff were great. So tentative and professional. Jodie handled everything and made my entire vision come to life. The day ran SO smoothly and I think that was purely down to the team knowing exactly what they were doing. We had so many compliments about the food, some guests saying it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding.
The gatehouse is such a perfect place to get ready in & the groom also made use of their new room for him & his groomsmen to get ready. The bridal suite is stunning & it was so nice to have guests stay over and have breakfast together the next morning.
It was by far the best day of our lives and we would like to thank everyone at Farnham Castle for making it so special!

A Wonderful Wedding Weekend

We would like to sincerely thank you and the entire staff for the wonderful wedding weekend we held at Farnham Castle on 7th March, 2020.
The entire event was extremely well organised, the food was wonderful and of course the Castle provided a rich and historical setting for the celebrations.
We are still looking back with excitement and fond memories at the many photos and videos share from the day, and our international guests talk about the fantastic time enjoyed by friends and family. Thank you once again.

A magical day at Farnham Castle

Words simply cannot describe how much we appreciate everything you did to make our wedding day so special on the 21st December. It was just magical and thank you all so much for embracing our Christmas theme so whole-heartedly. The fact that you took care of everything so effortlessly on the day meant that we could really and truly relax and enjoy every moment. The Castle looked beautiful, the food was spectacular and the guest all commented on how brilliantly run everything was – thank you! And the ’13 days of Christmas’ – what can we say – so brilliant and all credit to you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Everything was so organised

I am still coming down from the high of the day. I cannot put into words how extremely happy we were with the organisation leading up to and on the day of the event, the attention to detail, and how tentative absolutely every staff member were to us and our guests. In addition the little extra touches like, being handed a champagne after our first dance and having all of our gifts and a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the room! Everyone has got in contact with us, saying how amazing the evening was and how well everything was organised and flowed, honestly cannot thank you and the team enough.

The Best Day of our Lives

We can’t speak highly enough of Farnham Castle Weddings. The process and communication was fantastic from day 1 of our planning and the service felt personal. The team replied quickly to our emails and would have the answer to every question under the sun! On our wedding day, we had so many compliments about how the day ran so smoothly. The transitions were seamless and we did not have any worries at all, thanks to the fantastic team. Everything was perfect, the food was outstanding and they ensured we had the best day of our lives.

Our Wedding - 24.8.2019

Big thanks to Heather, Dan and Allie for all the hard work they put into making sure our Wedding Day was as amazing as we hoped it would be. They all helped where we needed it without being imposing. The day went seamlessly and at no point we felt stressed. The staff were very accommodating and attentive, the food was amazing, the venue was perfect and exactly how we wanted it to be. At no point we felt like we couldn't go anywhere and everyone made us feel like it was our place which was great. All of our guests have constantly told us how amazing the day, venue, weather, food and drinks were. It's definitely a day we won't forget.

Perfect Wedding Day

From the moment we stepped into the Bishops Palace at Farnham Castle we knew that this was the perfect venue for us!
Everyone was so welcoming, friendly and eager to help. Being of the older generation we thought perhaps we would not be their usual wedding clients, but they immediately made us feel very comfortable.
For both of us it was a second wedding, having lost our original spouses to illness some years before. However we felt the venue offered the same enchanting surroundings that appealed to young couples for their wedding celebrations that also suited us.
Heather, Dan, Louise and the rest of the team were fantastic; always professional, efficient and friendly.
Heather ensured that we knew what would be happening every minute of our day and it was accomplished seamlessly.
The fairy tell day started well in the Gatehouse whilst getting changed when our photographer stated that “she wished she could stay there with us as we were already having such a good time!”
Our Civil Ceremony in the Lantern Hall among our family and close friends was delightful and meaningful. Table service in The Great Hall was impeccable and all the food was delicious and got top marks from everyone.
The many rooms taken by our guests staying overnight were very comfortable and everyone said what a good time they had. We cannot praise everyone on the staff enough they really made our day to remember in such wonderful surroundings.
