    Magical wedding weekend

    We held our wedding at Hampton Court Castle over two days, September 1st & 2nd 2017.

    When we first decided to look for a suitable Castle venue, we visited Hampton Court Castle purely on a whim. Upon driving through the entrance, we were immediately captivated by the majesty of the Castle and the breathtaking natural beauty of the surrounding grounds and gardens. Once we viewed the interior facilities and met the staff, we were absolutely convinced that there was no other choice for our big day!

    Family and friends from around the world joined us on Friday for a complete medieval banquet in the atmospheric Coningsby Hall, catered entirely by the Hampton Court staff, which was absolutely amazing! The wedding festivities on the following day were everything we could have wished for. From the humanist ceremony in the beautiful, historic chapel, to the sumptuous reception in the garden and ballroom, and the photographs around the incredible grounds, we enjoyed a unique, magical wedding weekend.

    We cannot thank the team enough for their tireless efforts to help bring together this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    Thank you for everything

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and care on our wedding day and the weeks leading up to it.

    We considered ourselves incredibly lucky just to get such an amazing venue, but the care and attention your team gave us was far beyond our expectations. From putting us in contact with some amazing suppliers (florist, photographer, cake maker) to the chef being so accommodating with such an amazing menu and all the staff who helped make the day proceed without a glitch. It was the most amazing and magical day and we can't thank you enough for making it so special and surpassing all our expectations!!

    Wish we could do it all again

    The wedding ran smoothly throughout and we were over the moon with the entire day. What an incredible venue, from the beautiful bedrooms to the wonderful ballroom for dinner and dancing.

    We originally wanted to get married outside in the stunning courtyard, however it poured with rain. Not that it mattered one bit as we’re so happy we ended up getting married in the gorgeous chapel. We have some wonderful photos from that room which we’ll cherish forever and it was the perfect size for everyone to have a good view. The venue is perfect for any weather, it didn’t matter it was raining as we had our reception drinks in the library, just off the main ballroom which has a hidden door in a bookcase which the guests entered through and were all thrilled about.

    We were really relaxed the whole day as all of the brilliant staff organised everything for us and all of our guests have been talking about what a great time they had ever since.

    The main ballroom is eye catching and perfect for the meal, speeches and dancing. Hampton Court also put on an extremely tasty hog roast in the evening, which I really recommend, I am still thinking about how tasty it was now. We would also recommend having the dinner for all of the guests staying at the Castle the evening before your big day as that was brilliant getting both of the families together beforehand. The food was divine and the compliments were flowing once again.

    What a fantastic, memorable venue, and if you get good weather the gardens are gorgeous, reception drinks on the lawn would be beautiful! The one thing we are really sad about is that it’s all over and we can’t do it all again!

    Felt like the king & queen of our very own castle

    I wanted a castle with accommodation & a chapel as I didn't want our guests to spend the day traveling to and from different venues. With these requirements finding a venue was harder than I thought, however as soon as we walked into Hampton court castle we knew this was where we wanted to get married. We decided to book the castle and rooms for two nights as many of our guests had to travel from London, this removed the potential stressful journey on the day. During the planning we made many visits to the castle, Andrea and her family were always welcoming, they make you feel like you belong no matter how often you visit. Our planning meetings often felt like chatting with friends with Andrea's mum providing tea and cookies, a big thank you to Andrea for paying us such kind attention. The castle offers a more personal service; it never felt like a commercial production line. We were keen to use local suppliers however not being local made this difficult; again Andrea stepped in and made some great recommendations. The week leading up to our wedding was a whirlwind; it was such a relief when we arrived at the castle the afternoon before the big day. Having our family and friends around this night was a real added treat, which I sure would not be possible elsewhere, the food was great and the carol singers Andrea recommended were amazing. Everyone had a great experience, they all commented on the awesome venue, the friendliness and the incredible rooms, which are all distinctively different. The roll top baths went down particularly well with the female guests. We felt like the king and queen of our very own castle, a real fairy tale dream come true.

    Stunning venue fit for a Princess

    We wanted somewhere that wasn't just a wedding reception production line but which was still professional. We found it. Hampton court is a stunning venue that amazed all our guests. The professionalism & helpfulness of Andrea & her staff made the day easy & enjoyable: they did all the difficult tasks leaving us to have fun.
