Sudeley Castle & Gardens has been named as the ‘Most Romantic Place in the Cotswolds’
One thousand years of history…..
Kings, Queens and noblemen have had their lives and histories intertwined with Sudeley Castle, so where better to create your own history than at ‘the most romantic castle in England….’
Be a part of Sudeley Castle
When you choose to hold your wedding at Sudeley Castle you will not only be part of our history, but you will be sharing the most beautiful and historic castle and stunning grounds. Nestled within its’ own Cotswold valley, surrounded with wooded rolling hills and designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, you and your partner will be one of the lucky few able to get married at this exclusive venue, with only a limited number of weddings held here each year.
Each wedding is crafted between the couple and our dedicated team to produce your very own idea of perfection. We listen and we advise and we work together to create your dream.
Castle and Grounds
Within the Castle and grounds we are able to provide spacious dining and celebration areas within the Banqueting Hall and the Terrace Pavilion to seat up to 120 people. The historic Banqueting Hall is both warm in winter and cool in summer and the Terrace Pavilion has breath-taking views of the surrounding Cotswold Hills.
Marquees can be positioned on our spacious lawns, each lawn having its own stunning backdrop of the most photogenic castle and ruins which can ‘wow’ up to 500 guests.
Your drinks reception can then be held within our award winning and fragrant gardens, with every view a photo opportunity.
Alternatively, for those wanting an informal and modest wedding for up to 60 guests, Chandos Hall, within our cottages development is a neat solution.
St Mary’s Chapel, dating from the 15th Century, and the resting place of Katherine Parr, the last wife of King Henry VIII, sits within the heart of the gardens and offers the ultimate place to hold a blessing to celebrate your marriage or reaffirm your vows.
Alternatively, you can hold a religious or non–religious blessing within the grounds, or hold a civil ceremony in one of four room choices, from the historic to the informal.
Is provided for up to 50 people in 12 separate cottages, adjacent to the Castle in our converted streamside mill complex, plus 6 lucky guests can take the newly interior designed Sudeley Castle Guest Cottage, a 5 minute stroll from the Castle gatehouse, an ideal location for the bride and her entourage to depart from.
Whatever you can dream of, sublimely presented, impeccably served and centre to your whole celebrations. In receipt of constant accolades from delighted guests we can guarantee that you will be more than pleased with your choices.
During the summer, the castle and grounds are open to the public during the day for all to enjoy. The gardens are then closed to the public by 5:00pm and during all of November to March, thus giving you exclusive use of the Castle at no extra charge during these times. If you wish, it is possible to close the Castle outside of those times, on discussion.
Landings are possible, by appointment.
As each wedding is slightly different we would be delighted to put together your own personal quotation once you have visited the Castle and discussed your ideas with us. To make your choice easier we have listed a menu of costs to help you start to plan your day, which can be viewed here. All prices are quoted ex. vat and are for illustration purposes only.
We have an extensive list of tried and trusted suppliers to help you with your decision making too.
In 2016 we are offering a very limited number of midweek dates, and a new winter rate, so please do get in touch if you might be interested in discussing this option.
