Evening Reception

For Astor Wing weddings, an evening reception can be held in the Moat Restaurant (bookable until March 2025) accommodating up to 120 guests for dancing with a licensed bar until midnight. After the wedding breakfast, guests are escorted from the Castle to the Moat Restaurant via the Castle drawbridge and forecourt. On route guests can experience the beauty of the estate at a time when all our day visitors have departed. As dusk falls, the floodlit Castle provides a stunning backdrop to your evening reception. There is also the option to book a tipi on the Tudor Lawn, with views of the Castle and moat. On some dates throughout the year the Guthrie Pavilion can be booked, a stunning Palladian style contemporary venue located adjacent to the Rose Garden.

We could not have imagined a better day, the effort and work ethic and general kindness of everyone at Hever castle was unparalleled and we are so grateful for everything you did for us in planning the wedding and ensuring that everything went smoothly on the day itself. Thank you so much for giving us the wedding beyond our dreams. It was really a fairy tale wedding and the feedback from pretty much all our guests is it was the best wedding they have ever been to and that the staff at Hever Castle were phenomenal.
