About Hever Castle

Located in Kent, Hever Castle was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn and has preserved the grandeur of its history to make it a most majestic wedding location.

With three stunning venues on this country Estate, be it the stately grandeur of the castle itself, the country house atmosphere of The Astor Wing, or the stunning lakeside location of The Guthrie Pavilion, Hever Castle offers a dream- come- true location for your special day. Intimate gatherings, exuberant parties, outdoor weddings, all catered for.

The Astor Wing:

The Astor Wing is a private wing of Hever Castle, created in Tudor style by William Waldorf Astor in 1903. Offering peace, tranquillity and seclusion, The Astor Wing offers an exclusive use venue in one of the most historic and beautiful settings in England. The oak panelled Tudor Suite Sitting Room, overlooking the Castle and formal lawns, provides the perfect ambience for an intimate ceremony for up to 60 guests. Reception drinks are taken in The Music Room, or, weather permitting, on the Tudor Suite Terrace overlooking the croquet lawn and moat. The Tudor Suite Dining Room, shrouded with oak panelling and boasting a magnificent fire place, can accommodate up to 60 guests for a wedding breakfast. The Moat Restaurant can be transformed into spacious venue for music and dancing for up to 120 guests.

Hever Castle

During the winter months, The Castle Inner Hall and Castle Dining Room are available to hire for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The splendour of the charming Castle at Hever boasts ornate panelling and carved columns in Italian walnut. There’s an impressive minstrel’s gallery, a fine collection of antique furniture, original paintings and a splendid working fireplace for a roaring log fire.

The Italian Garden

Summer months see the Award Winning Italian Garden come to life as weddings take place under the beautiful arched columns of the Italian Loggia overlooking the 38 acre lake. This magical lakeside location, accommodating from 100 – 180 guests can also be extended to your drinks reception where guests can take in the views from the stone piazza complete with our very own inspired Trevi fountain. A short walk away is the Guthrie Pavilion. Extensively refurbished in Palladian style, the vaulted ceilings and full length arched windows make for a light and airy atmosphere keeping the romantic backdrop of the lake and gardens. With a license until 1.00am, the Guthrie Pavilion is also suitable for evening receptions and discos or live bands to round off your special day.

    Hever delivered my fairy tale wedding

    Just been married at Hever! I want to thank all my lovely vendors for capturing the day and delivering beautiful music, cake, and flowers: @stephaniechapmanphotographer
    Haysden String Quartet (we had the trio) @purpleflour @theflowersmiths and Mike, our DJ
    I also want to thank the lovely staff at Hever! Emily and Faye you both were a pleasure to work with and I can't thank you enough for keeping things on track and helping me plan a perfect day! I'm so glad I took your suggestions, you are experts at what works best! Seriously brides, LISTEN to the masters and you will get what you dream of.
    Paul thank you for keeping us on track with timing the day of and for ensuring all guests were happy with their food and had everything they needed! Andy thank you for keeping guests satiated with drinks!
    Steve! Your energy was so calming as you walked us ladies through the grounds to where we needed to go. Thank you for holding my flowers! Your information about the cygnets and passion for the castle captivated me.
    Seriously, no wonder Hever won so many awards this year! You all have weddings down to a science without it feeling stiff or rushed. Also, no wonder these vendors are on the best venue's list! (Picking from this list and communicating with Emily and Faye were the biggest keys in planning a successful marriage in another country). All in all they are a dream to work with and they deliver the stuff of fantasy!
    Finally, my husband and I were officially married in the States and held a "Renewal of vows" ceremony at Hever. It looked, felt and ran just like a wedding and we avoided the requirements and costs of the Kent registrar.
