    Perfect Intimate Wedding Venue

    We always wanted something small and intimate for our closest family and friends. The Maiden's Tower at Leeds castle was perfect and meant that we could have the whole building to ourselves for the whole day. The rooms are spacious and absolutely beautiful. The historic building has a breathtaking ambience. I literally couldn't fault the team at Leeds Castle. They paid attention to every detail, they were reassuring, professional and went far and above what we expected. Particularly Alice who held my dress in the rain so that it wouldn't get too muddy! Julie and the florist team did an incredible job on our vibrant flowers and centre pieces. Our original plans for having a beautiful sunny day in the garden failed but it actually didn't put a damper on anything. The kids could still play with plenty of space. And the cherry on top were the rooms, which are romantic and fit the whole setting beautifully. We couldn't be happier. Thank you so much to Sophie, David and Steven for helping us make our day everything we wanted.

The wedding breakfast was superb & the flowers in the package looked beautiful, everyone who attended the wedding said it was one of the best weddings they had been too.

I would like to say a big thank you to Sophie & her team for making our day so special.

    Our Perfect Day

    We cannot recommend Leeds Castle as a wedding venue more. We got married there in the Maiden's Tower in June 2018 and we can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. We booked our wedding around 18 months prior to our big day and from the moment we made contact with the wedding team at Leeds Castle there were fantastic. Throughout all our planning and decision making they were so supportive and helpful. I can honestly say I loved the build-up to our wedding and all of the planning. We felt completely confident in the team throughout and there experience always shone through.
    From the moment we arrived at Leeds Castle and made our way up to the Maiden's Tower our day really was a fairytale. The venue is stunning and the floristry team made it even more so and my vision come true. All our guests said how beautiful the venue and decorations were and that is all credit to the team at Leeds Castle. Our entire wedding day ran completely to plan and every moment the team kept to out itinery. They were so supportive and attentive to not only ourselves but all of our guests.
    We honestly had a perfect day and could not have chosen somewhere more amazing to become husband and wife.

    Allan & Sharon Robbins Wedding 2017

    We could not have asked for a better venue. From the team behind the scenes, showing us the venue and the booking team to the guys and girls on the day. Every dream we ever had of how a wedding, our wedding, should be, came true. The 27th August, 2017 is a day we will never forget, of course, but also a day our friends refer to when talking about other people weddings. If you want a romantic, beautiful day centred around you, your needs and hopes and wishes, with beautiful surroundings then please, please chose the Maidens Tower, Leeds Castle.

    Sharon and Peter's dream wedding

    On arrival on cold February morning, was made most welcome by David and his staff. Although the main Castle was appealing, the Maiden's Tower provided exclusive use, including stunning bedroom accommodation. The support and assistance leading up to the special day was faultless and nothing was too much of a bother. The staff on the day made the wedding ceremony/breakfast and evening function a dream, where did the time go. The children were all safe running around in the enclosed garden, which made the parents relaxed. The staff assisted the following morning where presents/flowers and a few found items were taken to the cars, and then the family finished the gathering with breakfast in the Fairfax Hall before setting off to the 4 quarters of the world. Thank you again for making our day special, with such wonderful memories made more special by the staff and such a beautiful stunning venue.

    Magical

    Breathtaking - from the sun rising in the morning to the stars overhead at night. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts. We could not have asked for a more romantic day in such a beautiful and intimate setting. Sophie is a wonder and a Mary Poppins in the wedding world! She was unbelievably helpful and supportive - no request made was too big or too small and she created a day filled with laughter, beauty and celebration. The staff on the day were also exceptional delightful towards ourselves and our guests, and executed every detail to perfection with friendliness and cheer. From the flowers to the food, everything was crafted with love and care. Our guests still remark to this day that it was such a magical day. To the Leeds Castle team, thank you! We have so much love for this place.

    Best wedding ever!

    Andy and I got married at the Maiden's Tower in July 2017 and it was everything I could have ever wished for! The venue is stunning, the scenery is incredible and the staff were fantastic. My morning as a bride to be was totally stress free and everything was done for me, they took all the pressure off. The food at the wedding breakfast was really good and again the staff faultless. The flowers were beautiful and she had totally captured our theme. Honestly couldn't recommend this venue highly enough. Thank you Leeds Castle and Sophie and her team for all their hard work

    Fantastic Wedding

    We could not have been more pleased with the service we received at Leeds Castle. The Maiden’s Tower was stunning, the rooms and the set up for the event all looked amazing. It was so easy to coordinate with our various suppliers and the venue. They made sure process was smooth and painless so my husband and I could focus on ourselves. We even had a couple of unexpected last minute guests for the ceremony and it didn’t faze them at all, they made it all work with no fuss. The food was to die for, we were blow away by the tasting to begin with and the food on the day for a much larger number was delivered to the same great standard. It was the best day of our lives, as it should have been, and that was down to the staff. Couldn’t be more pleased. We are still showing the photos more than a year on.

    The Doltons dream day

    If you are looking at potential wedding venues, you won’t be disappointed if you choose Leeds Castle.
    From the moment we first came for a tour and met the amazing Sophie and her team we knew that it was the place for us.
    Nothing was too much effort for them and they made planning and hosting our wedding as stress free as possible.
    They even coped when six months after booking we suddenly found out we were expecting our son and would have a 7 month old at the wedding. Worried we might not be able to have our dream wedding I called Sophie, only to be congratulated and sent a gift on his arrival.
    Meeting with the florist and caterer went seemlessly and they really listened to what we wanted.
    The wedding itself was everything I could have possibly wanted and more. It was an unforgettable day for not only ourselves but our guests and entertainers as everyone said the venue was perfect.
    We now go back regularly to visit for days out and always have a smile on our face thinking about how for one day it was all ours.
    So thank you to all at Leeds Castle from the management to the cleaners. You did an amazing job and I urge anyone looking at wedding venues to book. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

    King and queen for the day

    Where do I start. From the open day where we booked our wedding through to leaving as husband and wife the Leeds castle team couldn’t have done more for us. As soon as we arrived we knew it was our venue, so much so we booked there and then and didn’t visit anywhere else! The Maiden’s Tower was the perfect venue for us as it had a cosy relaxed feel which was what we wanted for our relatively small wedding. The food was fantastic, their own florist made bouquets and flower arrangements dreams are made of and the staff on the day made sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing. If we could do it all again tomorrow we would. Friends and family always say what a magical day it was and what a beautiful venue we had. It really was a perfect day.

    Maidens Tower, Leeds Castle

    We renewed our Wedding Vows on the 5th January 2017. From start to finish it was an amazing experience. We attended the Wedding Showcase and went through various details with Sophie Welsh ( Events Manager). We had a tour of the Maidens Tower and just fell in love with the idea of us being married there. Everything was planned right down to the last detail. We had various meetings to discuss the menu Guests, arrival times and booking of rooms for our guests. The day itself was amazing everything ran like clockwork, all the staff involved were absolutely fantastic. Polite, smart and very professional. The food was delicious, and looked fabulous. Everything on the day exceeded our expectations. Even today when we meet up with our friends and family they still say what a fantastic venue and day they had. It was a day for making life long memories and we loved it. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Leeds Castle for helping create our special day.
