Thank you from Chris and Lucy

We had the most wonderful wedding at Hartlebury Castle. We were looking for a venue that had the wow factor but didn’t feel too exclusive. We wanted our 100 guests to feel at home, and it was important that we could decorate it to match our style. Beth and the team did a great job from start to finish, helping us to feel at ease and excited all at once.

We loved the feature staircase and couldn’t wait to come down it to one of our favorite songs as we entered for our wedding breakfast. The way they seamlessly turned the rooms around to accommodate all our guests for the different parts of the day was fantastic.

We had a live band, a sweetie ladder, a photo booth, lawn games, and so much more—none of it was an issue for the venue. We also had private rooms to get ready in, which made it super special. This venue really is a hidden gem. If you are looking for a place full of charm and beauty with ample opportunities to make it unique and your own, all at a really reasonable price, then look no further. You won’t be disappointed!

Additionally, the caterers, Country House Occasions, are truly 5-star. People cannot stop talking about how much they loved the food!

Thank you, Beth and everyone at Hartlebury, we are so pleased we had our wedding with you.
