COVID Secure Weddings


Weddings are not permitted to take place under government guidance and so no weddings will take place for the period 5th November until 2nd December 2020. We are still taking enquiries for future dates.

Hever Castle is celebrating intimacy and embracing the new normal with COVID secure weddings. Available for all remaining 2020 dates from 2nd December and up until 30th April 2021 (subject to further government updates), take advantage of the unique opportunity to tie the knot at Hever Castle with just your close friends and family. Whether it’s just the two of you, or for numbers of up to 15, there are two beautiful function rooms to choose from:


Oak panelled throughout, the Tudor Suite has unparalleled views of the Castle, moat and gardens. Leaded windows fill the rooms with light, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Available daily for a 2.30 pm ceremony. Late afternoon and evening ceremonies also considered.
