FAQs

Can i get married outside the Castle?

Civil ceremonies have to occur within a licensed building and thus most of our ceremonies occur within the castle itself.  However, outside weddings are possible both at the castle and in the American garden.  At the castle couples can enjoy a rose garden wedding, with guests seated in the sunshine on the lawn, with the couple themselves on the terrace.  The actual wedding vows, take place within the terrace entrance.  Similarly, in the American garden, guests can sit outside in the wooded glade, while the official ceremony takes place in the pavilion.
