March 26 2024 | Weddings

Our Weddings team have put together a list of top tips for your wedding day. As one of the most important days of your life, we want to make sure everything runs smoothly and the day is a success!

Lessen the planning stress

Searching for suppliers that not only deliver on your own personal preference but also are well-matched and knowledgeable about your venue can be both stressful and time consuming. Tap into the wonderful list of Hever Castles recommended suppliers who not only know our venue inside out but can also be trusted to deliver exceptional service and standards on the big day.

Own the Day

Sometimes, couples put themselves under immense pressure to keep everyone else happy at detriment to their own personal choices. It can be a difficult balance to strike but remember it’s your day and your dream, so bring it to life with a healthy amount of you-things!

Keep schtum over the seating plan!

Every wedding seating plan comes with its own challenges! Keep it to yourself to stop the deluge of requests from guests asking to be moved! As the table plan can be one of the biggest challenges, allow enough time for this, stock up the fridge with your favourite tipple before setting out on this challenging tick-list item!

Wake-up with us on your Wedding Day

The morning of the wedding can be a busy time and coordinating everything that needs to be done coupled with getting to your venue can be challenging. Hever Castle offers a Tudor-inspired self-catering cottage on the Estate that sleeps eight. Check-in the afternoon before your wedding, either with your wedding party or with family and friends and have a relaxing evening knowing you are on-site and wedding-ready when you wake up.

Find five minutes!

Wedding days can be busy and in the excitement of the day they can be over before you know it! Everyone will be wanting to speak to you and congratulate you. But try to find five minutes shortly after you have said your vows for an intimate moment with your loved one to acknowledge your love for one another and have a moment alone to recognise the wonderfulness of being married!
