Ceremony & Reception Venue

You will be spoilt for choice with an array of beautifully adorned private rooms available for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and evening celebrations.

Choose from The Ballroom, a magnificent room with high ceilings and sweeping views of the parkland, river and woodland which is perfect for a ceremony of up to 90 guests. The Viscount Room, a stunning space with gilded ceiling and traditional décor which is perfect for your wedding breakfast. The more intimate Arniston Room with elegant windows overlooking the park, river and woodland which is ideal for pre or post ceremony drinks. Last but not least, if you are looking to hold a larger, more lavish wedding then the spectacular marquee situated on the east lawn provides the perfect location for larger ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. Spacious with a beautifully decorated interior, the marquee is positioned adjacent to the castle enabling you and your wedding guests to move easily between places should you choose.
