Set within stunning grounds and steeped in history, Berkeley Castle provides a fairy tale setting for wedding celebrations, with the picture-perfect venue offering couples exclusive use for the day.

The splendid medieval fortress, located near the town of Berkeley, is licensed to host civil ceremonies and benefits from a choice of magnificent spaces to say ‘I do’.

The 14th-century Great Hall, which features beautiful stained glass windows and a beamed ceiling, is ideal for larger ceremonies with capacity for up to 150 guests.

For smaller celebrations, The Long Drawing Room complete with carved gilt mirrors and an impressive mantelpiece, provides a more intimate space for up to 60 people.

St Mary’s Church, which dates back to 1225, is located next to Berkeley Castle and couples can meet with the parish vicar to discuss to possibility of getting married in the church.

After the ceremony, guests can enjoy alfresco drinks receptions on the Gun Terrace or during the colder months, the lounge provides a cosy setting with the option to have an open fire.

The Great Hall can seat up to 130 guests for wedding breakfasts, while The Long Drawing Room can welcome up to 30 for a formal meal, with the tempting menus created by Napier Catering.

The manicured grounds offer endless photo opportunities, with the choice of backdrops spanning exquisite scented roses, a lily pond and a water fountain.
