Wadhurst Castle

Ok, it’s August and we’re having a great summer, not perhaps the time to be talking winter weddings you’d think! However, if you’re going to be a winter bride then now is the time to be planning……

What could be more romantic than a candlelit winter wedding in your very own castle? Wadhurst Castle, a licensed wedding venue in East Sussex, is picture perfect all year round but in winter it takes on a truly fairy-tale quality.

Imagine yourself as a snow bride in a stunning setting with a backdrop of panoramic views over the beautiful Sussex countryside.

Georgina Hovey, the wedding co-ordinator at Wadhurst Castle, says: “The Castle is both grand and intimate. Its stunning interiors lend themselves to candlelight and lavish trimmings, so you really can create a truly magical, romantic setting for a winter wedding here. “

The castle is available for exclusive hire, so you can create your own winter wonderland theme. It can accommodate up to 100 guests within the castle itself, and there is a choice of three rooms that are licensed for marriage ceremonies: The Drawing Room; Moncrieff Room and the Winter Garden.

A special package is also available for weekday weddings for up to 30 people; there is a choice of a midday ceremony and wedding breakfast, or a 5pm ceremony followed by an intimate dinner. The package includes catering and event management with a menu of choice – anything from bangers and mash to Boeuf Wellington!

The castle also boasts a luxury 3 bedroom house in the grounds, Castle Cottage, available for short breaks and ideal as accommodation for relatives or close friends.
