Wedding Venue and Hire

For a unique, award-winning Castle venue with 35 acres of Kentish countryside that are exclusively yours on your wedding day, Chiddingstone Castle is the perfect choice.

With the Castle and grounds closed to the public for weddings, we are able to 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.

What people say about us

From start to finish – … and her team were a dream to work with. And pre wedding visits to the Castle were made all the more special by the fantastic tea rooms & the homemade scones! Thanks so much for everything … It really was a very magical day. Thank you. And we have totally fallen in love with Chiddingstone!

Joe and I wanted to send our huge thanks to yourself and the rest of the team at Chiddingstone. We had such an amazing and special day. Your team helped us to have a hassle free day and it all ran like clockwork. Thank you again.

Emma Kingston, August 2017

Thank you so much for helping us have the best day of our lives. You’ve all been fantastic throughout and took all the stress out of the day. All our guests commented about how fantastic the venue was, how well organised everything was, and how much fun they all had so thanks for making the day run smoothly. The venue really is perfect and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to get married.
