As featured in 'The Crown' Wadhurst Castle is a beautiful Regency castle with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Nestled within its magnificent gardens, Wadhurst Castle is the perfect setting for weddings and any other unforgettable celebration from 2 to 130 people. On the borders of Kent and Sussex it is easy to access from London and the South East and offers ample private parking for you and your guests. We welcome you for the ceremony only, for the reception only or for the full wedding and reception.
You will have exclusive use of the Castle with its magnificent rooms and beautiful gardens offering stunning views across the uninterrupted Sussex countryside together with the newly converted Carriage Barn. The Carriage Barn situated in the Well Coutyard, offers an additional ceremony or dining choice. The Castle has space for dining for 90 and the Carriage Barn for up to 104 and evenings for up to 130 can take place in the Castle. For parties requiring dining between 104 and 130 guests a marquee on the South Lawn or as an extension to our Carriage Barn can be used. We are unique and private venue offering an unparalleled welcome. Our friendly and professional wedding team will be there to help you at every stage of your planning and will ensure that your special day is realised.
On Monday to Thursday each week we have a special Small and Intimate Wedding package offering hire and catering in one special package but the same exclusivity and attention to detail as our larger weddings.
You are welcome to provide your own drinks with no corkage charge from us. We have a panel of 4 preferred caterers for you to choose from with a guide price of £50/60 plus VAT per head.
We have a beautifully spacious Bridal Dressing Room available for you to prepare for your special day with en suite bathroom and unbeatable views across the estate.
We are fortunate to have several rooms licensed for civil ceremonies from intimate gatherings up to weddings for 130 guests.
In summer it is very popular to have the ceremony conducted in the open air in our pavilion in the spacious and private Walled Garden. Following the ceremony your guests can spill out on to the South Terrace with its amazing views for drinks and canapes, music, lawn games and meanderings around our lovely garden spaces.
Contact the Wedding team by phone or email to discuss your special day further, for our updated brochure or to request a viewing.
