offers three locations for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Whether it’s the stately grandeur of the Castle itself, the country house atmosphere of The Astor Wing or the stunning lakeside location of The Italian Garden, Hever Castle offers a wedding venue to suit all your wedding daydreams.
The Astor Wing is a private wing of Hever Castle created in Tudor style by William Waldorf Astor in 1903. The oak-panelled Tudor Suite Sitting Room, overlooking the Castle and formal lawns, provides the perfect ambience for an intimate ceremony for up to 60 guests. Reception drinks are taken in The Music Room, or, weather permitting, on the Tudor Suite terrace overlooking the croquet lawn and moat. The Tudor Suite Dining Room, shrouded with oak panelling and boasting a magnificent fireplace, accommodates up to 60 guests for a wedding breakfast. The Moat Restaurant can be transformed into a spacious venue for music and dancing for up to 120 guests.
The Castle itself is also licensed for ceremonies, with the Castle Inner Hall and the Castle Dining Room being available as an enhancement to an Astor Wing wedding or used for ceremonies and receptions, subject to the time of year. There’s an impressive minstrel’s gallery, a fine collection of antique furniture, original paintings and a splendid working fireplace.
Summer months see the award-winning Italian Garden come to life as weddings take place under the beautiful arched columns of the Italian Loggia overlooking the 38-acre lake. This magical location, accommodating from 100 – 180 guests can also be extended to a drinks reception where guests can take in the views from the stone piazza complete with our very own inspired Trevi fountain. The reception follows in the Guthrie Pavilion; extensively refurbished in Palladian style, the vaulted ceilings and full length arched windows make for a light and airy atmosphere, keeping the romantic backdrop of the lake and gardens. With a license, until 1.00 am, the Guthrie Pavilion is also suitable for evening receptions and discos or live bands to round off your special day.
Five-star luxury accommodation is available to book as part of a wedding at Hever Castle.
