About Hedingham Castle

Bayley Street, Castle Hedingham
Halstead, Essex
Essex, CO9 3DJ

Hedingham Castle in Essex is one of England’s most stunning, romantic wedding venues. The 900-year-old Norman Keep, the early Georgian Mansion House, outstanding landscaped gardens and grand marquee all provide the most unforgettable setting for your dream day.

Your ceremony will be held in the grand Banqueting Hall of the keep. The room has the capacity for 100 guests with an additional 30 guests seated in the Minstrels’ Gallery. Following the romantic ceremony, you and your guests will head toward the Mansion House over Henry VII’s Tudor Bridge. In the Great Hall you will enjoy a relaxed champagne drinks reception looking out over the stunning grounds and picturesque, ornamental lake.

Your large evening reception with up to 150 guests can be held in the beautifully appointed, grand marquee. The marquee stands beneath the shade of one of England’s three ancient Tulip trees and amidst the privacy of 160 acre, tree-lined easte. The space has its own concealed dance floor and private bar to create the perfect party atmosphere until midnight.

Alternatively, for receptions with 70 guests or fewer, the magnificent Tapestry Room in the keep is newly available for a wonderful reception. Celebrating in the Tapestry Room means you can have your whole day within the enchanting castle’s walls.

When the day finally draws to a close, the happy couple can retire to the Garden Cottage. Set within its own private orchard, in a peaceful corner of the estate, the cottage provides the perfect place for your first night of married life.

Thank you to all the staff at the Castle for making my daughter's wedding the huge success that it was. It really was the perfect day and we can't thank the team enough.

An enormous thank you to everyone at Hedingham Castle who helped to make our wedding day so very special. We had a magical day and the Castle with its snow- covered grounds just made it. We and our guests were completely blown away. We'd particularly like to thank Charlotte and Jackie for being out-and-out superstars. We are so glad we chose Hedingham for our wedding. The setting is incredible, but it's the people who really make it special. Thank you to every single person who was a part of our day.

Wow and Thank You!
Venue Service

By Donna and Mark Perry, on 21 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Dec 2017

We had the most magical, special wedding day at Hedingham. It truly is the most spectacular venue, however what makes everything work and run to plan are the people. From the Open Day, we could see that the Castle's staff were professional, courteous and friendly. Ladies, thank you so very much for all you did for us and to everybody who made our day wonderful from start to finish. Above all thank you to the owners, as without their generosity and permission, none of us lovely couples would be able to marry at Hedingham.
