Chiddingstone Castle is an award-winning wedding venue set in the heart of Kent. To share your initial plans for your weddings day, register your interest in Chiddingstone Castle and enquire about specific dates, please contact our Weddings Co-ordinator Natalie Wilkins via email.
We offer exclusive use of our wedding venue throughout the day. We have three separate areas licensed for the ceremony. During summer months most couples opt for a ceremony at the Orangery in the grounds, followed by drinks on the formal raised lawn, before coming inside to the Great Hall and the drawing room for the wedding breakfast and evening reception.

During the winter months, or in wet weather, the ceremony is by no means compromised by coming inside to the majestic Great Hall, a grand, formal room of Tudor heritage reflected in its oak panelling. The bridal couple sign the register at our 17th Century oak refectory table beneath the stained glass window. An aisle is created from the Print Room behind and, following the ceremony, drinks and canapés can be served in the White Rose Drawing Room adjacent, a light and elegant room with breathtaking views of the Weald and walls hung with paintings of the Stuart monarchs.
