I just wanted to drop you a line to say an absolutely massive thank you for all your help both on the day and before the day. The whole ceremony and photos afterwards ran like clockwork and we did not have to worry about a thing...you even brought the brollys out when it started to rain! You could not have done more for us if you had tried, we ere chuffed to bits with everything you did fir us and especially from me, for looking after my Mum and Dad so well, they were both very appreciative, as was I. I will recommend you highly to anyone thinking of hosting an event at The Castle.

By Annie and Lee, on 04 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2017

We had our beautiful wedding ceremony at Hertford Castle. The team and event managers there were amazing and really made the process 100% stress free allowing us to really enjoy our day without having to worry about our guests and the running of the day, as they had it all in hand. I would recommend this venue as a great place to get married, and the photo opportunities are endless. Customer service was great, and we has 2 or 3 meetings before the day so that the team at Hertford Castle had all the details they needed. 5*venue 5*service

Venue Service

By Claire andLuke, on 12 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2017

We had our beautiful wedding ceremony at Hertford Castle on Friday 7th July and it was truly everything we could have hoped for. The team were amazing from start of planning to running the whole event on the day. All of the staff were so friendly and welcoming, making my whole party feel at home. They brought chairs out for our elderly guests so as they could sit and wait for photographs in the stunning grounds. I didn't have to worry about a thing, it was all taken care of so well. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you for making our day so special.
