Dream come true
Hampton Court Castle was my dream wedding venue as a child and being able to make the dream a reality was an incredible experience. The impeccable grounds and rooms formed the perfect weekend and we were delighted to be blessed with incredible weather – the courtyard was the perfect spot for the ceremony but knowing we could use the chapel (also beautiful) if the weather did not hold gave us a huge level of comfort. The staff on the day were incredibly attentive and the whole weekend was a seamless experience.Sent on 28/03/2018

Magical wedding weekend
We held our wedding at Hampton Court Castle over two days, September 1st & 2nd 2017.Sent on 28/03/2018
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.Sent on 28/03/2018
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!!
