    The Perfect Wedding

    As soon as we fell in love with the venue and met with the team at Leeds Castle, we knew that it was going to be an amazing day (thankfully the weather “played ball” too!).

    Our coordinator, Sophie, was the most helpful, professional and understanding person we could have asked for. Obviously, a lot naturally changes through the organization of a wedding and Sophie’s openness and adaptability to our requests were second to none.
    We had free exclusive package with the Fairfax Hall as a bolt-on for the evening. This gives the evening an extra dimension for the evening reception with an amazing view of the castle lit up at night.

    The staff on the day were professional, organized and interacted well with guests when appropriate. The end product was a day that we will never forget and one we will always treasure.
    Thank you to everyone at Leeds Castle for making the start of our married life the best it could be.

    Fabulous Wedding at Leeds Castle

    Initially when visiting Leeds Castle, we were completely in awe of its beauty. Not long after our visit, we decided to book our wedding with them in the Main Castle. From the get-go, the team at Leeds Castle were very helpful and catered for our every need. Their in-house wedding coordinators made wedding planning seamless - even when we left things to the last minute! They were there on the end of the phone to answer any questions or worries we had. Having their experienced team on-hand throughout our big day to keep everything on track took the pressure away from us. We would recommend anyone thinking of booking with Leeds Castle not to hesitate, as you certainly won't regret it.

    Fabulous Fairy Tale Wedding

    I cannot express how grateful I am for choosing Leeds Castle as our wedding venue. The coordinators and staff were so welcoming and helpful in every way imaginable. Everything was beautiful and better than I could have imagined. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left every need was met with a smiling face. They made us feel like we were living in a fairy tale throughout every day of our wedding weekend and the castle our home. The staff made sure our day was stress free and flawless from start to finish. From the flowers to the music to the food and drinks, everything was amazing. Every meal was exceptionally delicious. Our guests have shared that they will never attend another wedding so grand and well orchestrated. The grounds itself were a delightful addition to provide activities for our wedding party from luncheons and dinners to a golf outing for the groom and his men. The grounds and the castle itself are an amazing backdrop for wedding photos and lawn celebrations. The rooms in the castle are absolutely breath-taking and provide such a great space for wedding parties. I highly recommend Leeds Castle as your wedding venue.
