Uninterrupted Views  of the Kent Countryside

Exclusively yours, for the most personal of Castle Weddings in Kent. With 35 acres of informal grounds; sweeping lawns, wild woodlands and breath-taking views of the Kent countryside; Chiddingstone Castle is a perfect place to celebrate your day. Set within the idyllic village of Chiddingstone, you can hold your ceremony in the castle grounds, our rooms, or in the 13th century church of St Mary’s.

Nestled in rolling countryside, yet within easy reach of London and the M25, Chiddingstone Castle is one of Kent’s finest historic houses and a much sought-after wedding venue. 

Exclusively Yours

Chiddingstone Castle is a Grade II* historic house perfect for a bespoke wedding experience.

We offer exclusive use of the castle and its grounds, giving you control of timings and an opportunity to prepare at leisure in the bride’s suite.

With flexibility to suit all needs, we team up with you to create your day that is as intimate as you wish, as fun as you want, as glamorous as you desire and as big and bold as you imagine. Read some of our reviews here.

A Variety Of Outdoor Spaces

Throughout the summer season our Orangery is one of the most unique venues in Kent for a civil ceremony. View our award-winning read more about the Orangery page here.

Drinks can also be enjoyed at the Orangery, on the Raised South Lawn or our rustic cobbled Tom Close courtyard, perfect for castle weddings in Kent.

Intimate or Spectacular?

We are able to accommodate a range of guest numbers, from micro weddings to larger groups up to 80 for a wedding breakfast in the Great Hall, followed by an evening reception of up to 120.

We regularly erect our marquee in the grounds which gives you freedom to invite up to 120 guests for the full day from ceremony through to evening reception.

A Venue For All Seasons

During the winter, 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.  It is a light and elegant room with breath-taking views of the Weald and walls hung with paintings of the Stuart monarchs.
