COVID SECURE INTIMATE WEDDING PACKAGES AT HEVER CASTLE

During lockdown, marriages and civil partnerships are only allowed in exceptional circumstances with up to six people. Please contact us for more information and to make an enquiry.

As we surface from lockdown, we are hopeful that the current restrictions will start to ease, and that marriages and civil partnerships will be able to resume.

Given that restrictions are expected to be eased gradually, we have created a covid-secure ‘Intimate Wedding Package’ which is available for new bookings taken in 2021 for dates up until the end of August 2021.

Hever Castle offers three stunning locations for an Intimate Ceremony, The Loggia in the Italian Garden. The Tudor Suite in the Astor Wing, or in the Castle itself.  


THE LOGGIA

The Loggia is located within the stunning surrounds of the Italian Garden. Ceremonies take place under the beautiful arched columns overlooking the lake.

A Loggia ceremony can be booked for either 10.30am or 4.30pm.

Post ceremony reception drinks can be enjoyed on the lower stone piazza with its very own Trevi-inspired fountain. The wedding breakfast can follow in either the Guthrie Pavilion, the Tudor Suite or the Castle (subject to guest numbers and timings).

THE TUDOR SUITE

Arrive at the private gated entrance of the Astor Wing and head to the oak panelled Tudor Suite, where you will discover unparalleled views of the Castle and gardens from the private lawns. Leaded windows, antique furnishings and a Tudor art collection set the scene.  

A Tudor Suite ceremony can be booked from 2.30pm but late afternoon and evening ceremonies can also be considered.

Post-ceremony drinks can be enjoyed on the terrace and the wedding breakfast can follow in the Tudor Suite Dining Room or Castle Dining Room.
