On first arriving at Hampton Court Castle and entering the main gates, you’ll make your way down the long drive, past the lake and onto the castle. Those familiar with this often recount the first time they arrived here and many even wish they could experience this with fresh eyes all over again. We challenge you not to be swept up in the incredible atmosphere here. A warm welcome awaits and this is where the adventure starts!
Ceremonies at the castle are so unique and special, a real highlight of any wedding day here. You can roll out the red carpet and say your vows in the beautifully romantic Central Courtyard, for which you’ll stand in the impressive Drawthrough, with the 600 year old castle doors open for a view down to the Gatehouse. If you are after a more traditional feel, the Chapel (which although no longer consecrated for religious ceremonies) provides a classic space for you to say ‘I do’.
The castle rooms are exclusively yours for your wedding day, allowing you to make yourself feel at home. You’ll be able to bring your vision to life in various amazing reception rooms, all with a wonderful feeling of space and flow between each other, something that is often hard to find in many older buildings.
Kick off the celebrations with drinks flowing on the South Lawns, a hearty wedding breakfast in the Ballroom or perhaps a Christmassy tipple in front of the fire in the inviting Library. For more on what we can offer to keep your guests full and thirsts quenched, see our Food & Drink page.
Spend that extra quality time with your family and friends by staying in the castle. To see the beautiful castle rooms on offer exclusively to your guests, head over to the Accommodation page.
