Grandeur and opulence go hand-in-hand with castle wedding venues, and Eastnor Castle has these in abundance. Dating back to the start of the 19th century, this imposing castle sits within an expansive estate surrounded by the rolling Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From the moment you enter through the impressive Portcullis, you will find yourself in a remarkable, historic setting that provides a wonderfully traditional place to tie the knot.
There are plenty of options when it comes to civil ceremony settings at Eastnor Castle. The Gothic Drawing Room is a popular choice, and it's easy to see why. The stunning room is decorated to the designs of renowned architect and artist Augustus Pugin and provides a grand setting for up to 90 guests. The Great Hall is ideal for larger ceremonies and can hold up to 150 guests beneath its dramatic, 60-foot-high ceiling. Should you prefer to say ‘I do' outdoors, you can choose from either the striking Portcullis or the Port Cochere, both of which offer breathtaking backdrops of the grounds and verdant surroundings.
Those looking for a religious ceremony will be happy to know that the beautiful St John the Baptist Church is just a short walk from Eastnor Castle and is very welcoming to couples outside of the parish.
Once you've exchanged your vows, why not take to the Upper Terrace for a truly memorable drinks reception? With stunning views over the lake on one side and the towering castle on the other, it's a unique spot to enjoy a glass of Champagne and mingle with your guests, and capture some stunning wedding photos too.
The Dining Room is a delightful setting for more intimate wedding parties to feast on a fantastic wedding breakfast. When filled with candles, it provides a real sense of the history of this incredible castle, as well as a romantic and inviting space to enjoy with your friends and family. The Great Hall at the heart of the venue can also be used for larger parties and offers an imposing yet warm atmosphere to celebrate in with 150 guests. For those weddings on a grand scale, a marquee can be erected on the Lower Terrace which can provide ample space for anywhere up to 500 guests.
A major part of the appeal of Eastnor Castle is the breathtaking grounds that surround the magnificent castle wedding venue. The 5,000-acre estate is home to a tranquil lake, expansive deer park and idyllic arboretum, all just waiting to be explored and utilised for remarkable wedding photos. Add to this the incredible views over the Malvern Hills and rolling Herefordshire countryside and you'll find that Eastnor Castle is a wedding venue like no other.
The castle boasts 12 opulent bedrooms for you and your guests to relax and unwind in after a night of wining, dining and dancing. Comfort is a priority with these individually designed rooms, with the aim of providing the perfect night's sleep before waking up and reminiscing with your friends and family over breakfast. With stunning views over the grounds and the highest quality furnishings, the accommodation is perfect for a luxurious stay. There are also three wonderful holiday cottages on the estate which sleep a further 16 guests.
