Nestled on the banks of the River Avon, Warwick Castle is a historic wedding venue situated in the heart of Warwickshire. This medieval fortress echoes with the stories of the Earls of Warwick, who hosted many lavish parties within the Castle walls. Surrounded by towers and ramparts, you are invited to make your own mark with a regal wedding celebration for the ages.

Facilities and Capacity

Warwick Castle is an enchanting and unique setting where you can embrace British history in all its splendour. This includes access to a private suite hidden within the castle walls and options for a knight on horseback to lead the procession to the venue. Civil ceremonies can take place within the fortress or outside amidst the 64 acres of wide-open spaces and stunning gardens. The Conservatory, originally built in 1786, features a beautiful terrace atop the Peacock Garden, ideal for post-ceremony drinks. For the wedding photographs, the East Front lawn offers majestic castle views at the foot of the 14th-century Guy's Tower. Meanwhile, the Central Courtyard is the venue's most inspiring setting, surrounded by turrets and ramparts. Inside, the opulent State Dining Room is distinguished by its centuries-old paintings and lavish chandelier. This ornate space is perfect for ceremonies of up to 95 or wedding breakfasts of up to 40 and can serve as a bar area for receptions in the Great Hall. The Great Hall banqueting hall is the most impressive, with a maximum capacity for 120 seated guests and 180 for a lively reception. Retiring to one of the venue's cosy lodges or brand new hotel.

Services Offered

Warwick Castle offers an array of exciting enhancements designed to embrace this fairytale setting. You can fly your flag from Guy's Tower, mingle with Birds of Prey during the drinks reception, and enjoy the soothing sounds of a string quartet in the background. The wedding team prides itself on crafting bespoke wedding packages that tick all the boxes for those who want something a little different. Their wedding brochure is filled with plenty of ideas to spark the imaginations. The flexible wedding menu allows you to choose from a formal dinner or medieval feast, with options for canapes, prosecco, and a three-course set menu. Booking your wedding here also includes venue hire until midnight (extendable), a master of ceremonies, and a fully-stocked bar.

A perfect wedding at Warwick castle

Our wedding at Warwick castle was amazing. The venue is absolutely beautiful with the flexibility to choose which rooms to use to suit your wedding, from the great hall to the peacock garden. The planning process was made so fun and easy thanks to our amazing planner Becky, it was completely stress free. They have lots of options for additional enhancements, I can definitely recommend the birds of prey and mannequin knights, our guests loved them.
On the day of the wedding Becky made sure everything ran smoothly and on the day nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in the tower suit and they even tidied up our room (which we left in a mess after getting ready) for us to return to. They made sure we had everything we needed ok the day.
All the staff at the castle were really friendly and so helpful. Sir Jay, our master of ceremonies, was brilliant. He interacted with our guests answering any questions they had about the castle or his armour, and made sure our day ran smoothly.
I really can’t recommend this venue enough.

Magical - Our Dream Realised

We had our dream wedding at Warwick Castle!! We never thought a castle would be in our budget but we reached out and the team were so excited, friendly and accommodating. We were soon planning our magical wedding. The communication from the team was amazing and they offered loads of wonderful opportunities to explore the castle - which made the planning process so much more fun! It's hard to summarise it all: Gage the wedding planner ran the day like clockwork; The food was amazing!; the venue was very supportive of a diverse range of accessibility requirements and my Grandma felt so well looked after in her wheelchair. The venue is unrivalled, and the team supported us to realise an incredibly geeky wedding with a final lightsaber battle! Our photographer said that it was so smoothly organised by the team he was able to capture more high quality photos...many of our day and evening guests said it was the best venue they had ever been to. They took care of everything on the day so we could just party hard and really let it sink in.

Beautiful wedding at the most beautiful Venue

We had a magical day at Warwick Castle. All staff were simply amazing and our family has friends throughly enjoyed the day. The peacock suite for the wedding night was the cherry on top of our wedding cake! Thank you for making our special day a super memorable one 🥰

This was a fairytale experience

This venue could not do enough. So professional in all they did. Our wedding planner attended to our every need and it was just, quite simply, the perfect day. We wanted to try things they hadn’t done before and they were open to it, with an amazing ‘can do’ attitude.

They were incredibly flexible and wanted only one thing - for us to have a happy day. Unlike many other venues, I felt the staff enjoyed doing weddings and were, for that weekend, emotionally invested in us.

The pricing scheme was so transparent. The price I was quoted two years ago was the exact price I paid six weeks prior, despite many external suppliers raising prices. They committed to the contract which is a real plus for me about their attitude to customer service.

All of our guests cite they have never been to such a well staffed, well resourced wedding. It was seamless from start to finish. I have been to many weddings which have resulted in unhappy couples due to things not going to plan and hear different stories about ‘hidden extras’ and ‘lost deposits’.

Merlin Entertainments simply weaved magic for us on our special day. If I could give 6 out of 5, I would. Wedding Venue of the year.

All of this in one of the most well known buildings in England.

Once in a Lifetime Experience

It was an absolute privilege to get married at Warwick Castle. Our whole experience, from the start of the planning process to the wedding, exceeded our expectations. It was simply magical. We were instantly made to feel special when we went for our first meeting with the Wedding and Events team and from then on their customer service was impeccable. All my emails and silly questions were answered promptly and efficiently, always with a friendly response. The standard of food was amazing and the menu tasting was actually one of my favourite parts of the planning process; we had a private lunch and then a walk-round of the venue, getting excited and trying to visualise the wedding. The chef listened to all our feedback and tweaked a few dishes accordingly. The wedding itself was just wonderful - all of our guests had a brilliant time, which was our main priority. They commented that dining and dancing in the Great Hall was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and it was incredible to have the whole castle to ourselves. Having someone following myself and the groom around with a canape plate whilst we had photos was lovely too - a great touch! The mannequin knights and fireworks were fabulous and made our day extra special. I always dreamed of getting married in a castle, but I never imagined it was going to be as wonderful as it was! Thank you so much.

Absolutely magical

Our wedding day at Warwick Castle was one of the best days of our entire lives. It was absolutely MAGICAL from start to finish – we could not have wished for a more spectacular day. We’ll be reminiscing forever, and our guests are still telling us what a magnificent venue it was. The Great Hall was stunning for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast – the team working on the day did such a brilliant job and the food tasted fantastic! We couldn’t have dreamed of a more incredible wedding day and venue so thank you to all of the team at Warwick Castle for bringing our vision to life!

Firstly, we would just like to you thank you and all of the staff at Warwick Castle for a fantastic day – we were honestly blown away and everyone was just absolutely fantastic!

Our wedding at Warwick Castle was so special, the event planning team took on board every detail and were excited about the day along with us. We had so many compliments from our guests about the day, the staff, the food and the beauty of the place. I could not have asked for a more special day!

Venue is Beautiful

Getting married in a castle is a dream come true, with the Warwick Castle Events Team it’s easily achieved. The team were flexible to our special requests, easy to contact, attentive to our needs, and made those whole process less stressful. The venue is beautiful, the grounds are stunning, every single guest commented at least once about how wonderful everything was. Highly recommended.

Truly Magical Experience

Getting married at the castle was a truly magical experience, from the drinks reception overlooking the Peacock Garden through to the sumptuous setting of the Great Hall for the main wedding festivities. It was a fantastic day for us as bride and groom and our guests were blown away at the majesty and spectacle of the castle itself. We were fortunate also to be able to stay at the castle, in the Tower Suites, which further contributed to a sense of historical splendour to the whole occasion. The whole event was smoothly co-ordinated by the wedding team leaving us to enjoy a wedding day that we shall never forget.

Incredible Day

We had an absolutely fantastic day, beyond all expectations. And so did our guests. You made it so we could relax and enjoy the time, rather than worry about running the day too. We had lots of tweaks and extra bits and pieces to integrate in to the day. All of which went without a problem on the surface, and we know it's due to your hard work and diligence in the background.
