By Jessica and Mark, on 19 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 15 Oct 2016

I could not fault any of the service that we got from Leeds Castle I would recommend for anyone to get married there!

The Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Colin & Kelly, on 01 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 08 Oct 2016

Everything from booking the castle with the wedding team right through to the wedding day is met with an absolute first class service! We booked the Castle as a venue for the ceremony, wedding breakfast, reception and most of the guests stayed overnight in the castle too. The service from all the staff from the moment we arrived to get ready until we checked out after breakfast the following morning was just amazing. They simply could not do enough for us. This, along with the amazing setting in the castle and the picturesque location, just make for a perfect wedding day, we could not have asked for anything more.

The perfect venue for our wedding
Venue Service

By Trisha & Christian, on 05 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2016

Leeds Castle was the perfect venue for our wedding. With many out-of-town guests, we were looking for a venue that offered an amazing location, exclusive use, a memorable experience and the option for all of our guests to spend the night on the premises. Leeds Castle did not disappoint. We especially appreciated all of the support from our wedding coordinator, Sophie, and all of the staff at the castle. They are experts at weddings and provided tremendous assistance leading up to the wedding with all of the planning and last minute touches. We were able to truly customise the experience for our wedding party and guests yet weren't overwhelmed with too many options to make planning stressful. Everything was high quality to include the on-site catering and floristry. On the day of the wedding, everything ran flawlessly and all of the staff nicely guided the guests to each room and event as the wedding progressed. All of our day and evening guests commented how it was a beautiful venue and the perfect wedding.

The Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Jane and Mark Styles, on 05 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

Having made an overnight stay at the Maiden’s Tower at Leeds Castle we both knew that, when the time came, it would be the perfect venue to at which to get married. When we started looking at venues, Leeds Castle was one of the first places that we contacted. Although it was by no means the closest venue, nowhere else could compete with it. It truly is a special venue. The quality of the catering, floristry and the accommodation for ourselves and our families was of the very highest standard. The wedding planning team were extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process and the service we received on the day was exceptional. One of the providers that we contacted (the DJ) said that weddings at Leeds Castle run like clockwork. How right they were. As far as we are concerned, it was the perfect wedding. We would recommend Leeds castle to any couples who are looking for their own ‘perfect wedding’ at what really is a special setting.

Our Dream Wedding!
Venue Service

By Viviane Wang & Richard Williams, on 07 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 20 Aug 2016

Amazing fairy tale wedding
Venue Service

By Mark & Carrie-Ann Olson, on 20 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2016

When we were deciding on our venue, we didn’t realise how good a choice we had made. From working out payment options right up to our special day. We received so much support and help from the staff at Leeds castle, all our worries including the little things were dealt with professionally and nothing was too much trouble. Our wedding day ran without a hitch but if there was any problems the staff dealt with it, leaving us to enjoy our day completely stress free. The Maidens tower was the perfect venue for us as it gave us the ceremony, wedding breakfast and reception all in one place. The building and features are absolutely stunning and to top it off the breath taking views and photo opportunities around the grounds. Even though the grounds are open to the pubic getting married in the Maidens tower with its private garden feels as though you are completely secluded. With some of the best food we have ever tasted served by staff that seem to glide around the room whilst serving almost unnoticed. We would highly recommend Leeds Castle as a wedding venue or even just for a day out, it will take your breath away.

A Magical Day
Venue Service

By Matthew and Susan Verrall, on 02 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016

The best day ever. From the moment we choose Leeds castle, to the end of our day, was relaxing and enjoyable. The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was a problem to them. Our guests were treated very well and always with a smile. The food was very tasty and good service. It was lovely to be able to enjoy the castle and everyone felt so at ease, and to be able just to go up the stairs to bed, and wake in just a wonderful room, with all our good memories from the day before. Our Wedding will be a day that not only we will remember, but our friends and family too. For a very long time. Thanks Lady Baillie for making Leeds Castle a party house and Very special Thank you to Leeds Castle Foundation for keeping up the good work

We got married in the Maiden's Tower at Leeds Castle and would DEFINITELY recommend Leeds Castle as a wedding venue. The staff at Leeds Castle made our wedding day! They are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Both the ceremony room and the reception room were decorated beautifully. The in-house florist is amazing and very good at what she does! The food was absolutely gorgeous and they are more than willing to accommodate any special dietary needs. The location is breath taking and a wonderful setting for wedding photos.

Maidens Tower Wedding
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Shattock, on 01 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2016

We were married in The Maidens Tower and it was the most perfect day. The Leeds Castle team were wonderful from the first time we came into the castle right through to the morning of check out. Nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond. I was able to phone whenever I had questions and I was always reassured that everything was in hand and I didn't have to worry. My flowers were absolutely perfect and exactly as I had imagined them. We also used Twiglet the Tawny Owl to deliver our rings and the falconry team were brilliant. We really couldn't of asked for anymore throughout the planning to the big day, we didn't have to worry about anything because The Leeds Castle team took all the worry and stress away. The only thing we would of wanted was for the day not to end so soon.

My perfect wedding!
Venue Service

By Tian and Leon, on 01 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 28 Jun 2016

We had a perfect wedding and beautiful memories at Leeds Castle! I was very nervous before the wedding and was afraid of anything went wrong. However, it was organized very well and professional! My husband and I couldnt forget that day, that moment in our life. Our guests also very enjoy the wedding, the hospitality and evening entertainment. Leeds castle provides very professional hospitality. We had wedding menu tasting in six months before the wedding. We can have enough time to invite guests and let them choose what they want. That's very personalized and guests feel respected. We had 44 Chinese guests. The catering & hospitality team was fantastic. They didn't pass any wrong dishes! and the food was very lovely, the standard just like Michelin restaurant ( : The florist team was good as well! I thought I might be a bit of picking but they did all job as requested. The executive team also helped us a lot on the day! They decorate the room, set up our own video, control the timing, arrange taxi, etc. ...... there still lots of compliments. The most important and special day always gone very fast. We are very fortunate to choose Leeds Castle, with your support to witness our love! Thank you!
