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. Top off the festivities with a fireworks display in the Central Courtyard before retiring to one of the venue's cosy lodges.

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 is a signature element of the day, allowing you to choose a feast that fits your theme. This includes options for canapes, prosecco, and a three-course set menu. Booking your wedding here also includes venue hire until midnight, a master of ceremonies, and a fully-stocked bar.

    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!

    Beautiful!

    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!

    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.

    Blown Away!

    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! Jay was absolutely brilliant and really made an effort with the children who loved him. The food was also amazing and we just were made to feel so special on our big day, we couldn’t be more happy.

    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.

    Perfect is an understatement

    Lucy helped to execute a perfect wedding for us both and it would not have been the same without her. There was nothing more she could have for us and no need was left unattended. It was clearly evident that she takes pride in her role and passionate in her delivery. There is no place like Warwick Castle and the events team are amazing. The food was delicious, the venue is breathtaking and planning process/execution are flawless. It was a privilege to have our wedding there and to say that our day was perfect is an understatement. We stayed in the Peacock room in the tower and the service was excellent! Made to feel like royalty! Thank you to all of the events staff at Warwick Castle!

    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.

    I wish I could do it all over again!

    We truly couldn’t have asked for our wedding day to go any better - it was a fairytale.

    From the moment of my first chat with Ruth she went out of her way to make sure that we had a package that suited us and was very accommodating and helpful with answering our questions and from the outset which secured in my mind that I wanted to have it here. We didn't think that what we wanted would be in our budget but we were surprised at what the castle included for us.

    During the planning the team were always available to help with any major or minor queries and really did help take a lot of the stress away! Amy was even on hand to help me with my dress during the evening and made sure that everything went smoothly and to plan. The master of ceremonies was great and he really made us and our guests feel as ease.

    Every single person at the castle who we have dealt with has gone over and above, and as wedding planning was 100% not for me I couldn’t have done it without their support – it was all worth it in the end! Our friends and family all said how fantastic the venue looked and they were right it looked truly incredible with the lights and decorations still up from Christmas – I would recommend a winter wedding to anybody.

    The castle is a dream venue and it didn't disappoint. I wish I could do it all over again. We are now starting to get our photos back and they just confirm how amazing it was. Thank you Warwick Castle. If you are considering getting married here - do it you won't be disappointed!
