The Best Day
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
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.
The BEST food!
A magical day at Farnham Castle
The Best Day of our Lives
Everything was so organised
Our Wedding - 24.8.2019
The accomodation part of the castle is just as well run - Louise was so welcoming and patient with everyone, and very accommodating with those who had luggage and pushchairs that they wanted to keep in the office. We also thought that the hotel staff and wedding organizing staff worked so well together. There seemed to be no separation between the two. The rooms in the Castle are very comfortable and the Bridal suite is such a lovely room.
We would like to emphasize is how special we felt during the entire process. We know that the castle has weddings almost every day, and despite this, we felt like all that mattered was us, the entire time. Even the next day when the next wedding was being set up, all of the staff were around and available to chat about the fun of the day before. We didn't feel like it was a "one in, one out" operation, even if realistically it is - and we think that is something so special.
Wonderful wedding venue
We cannot thank them enough and would recommend the Castle for anyone wanting a fabulous day to remember.
Best Day Ever!
Perfect Wedding Day
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.
Completely and Utterly the Best Day Ever!
The rain didn’t put a damper on it, and I am hoping for some good rain shots as people cowered under bouquets and other useless rain-shielding implements! When Tom releases the photos we will send you a couple of the best ones.
Thanks once again for making our best day happen!

An Absolutely Fantastic Day!
A big thank you to Dan as well! He kept everything running like clockwork.
Thank you. We’ll definitely be coming along to one of the Farnham Castle events sometime soon to relive the magic.
Run to Perfection!
Everything seemed completely seamless and just run to perfection. A special thank you to Heather, Dan, Mike, Neil, and Louise for all their help running up to and on the big day, nothing was too much trouble and that is truly appreciated.
All our guests have been raving about what a beautiful venue it is (quite rightly so ??) and how organised everything was. There has also been many many compliments on the food, the phrase “to die for” has been used quite a lot! So a big thank you to the chefs for creating such an amazing feast.
It was such an amazing day that we wish we could do it all over again! You have certainly given us some beautiful memories.
All of our thanks, Kelly and Harry Turner
