Sudeley Castle – the ‘most romantic place in the Cotswolds’

Your wedding day should be as unique as you, and that means finding a venue that rises spectacularly to the occasion. Tucked into the gently rolling landscape of the Cotswold hills lies Sudeley Castle. A living, breathing castle and family home that tells the story of more than 1,000 years of history. Where kings and queens once walked, and where you can say your I do’s.

Here, amongst 1,200 beautiful acres, against a breathtaking background of dreamy, romantic ruins and spectacular gardens, you can weave your own story into the long and rich history of Sudeley Castle.

Scattered around the beautiful grounds and within the castle walls are some of the most glorious settings imaginable. The beauty and uniqueness of Sudeley Castle makes it the most idyllic of Cotswold wedding venues, and a truly memorable place for your very special day.

Castle and Grounds

Throughout the magnificent grounds and gardens are myriad options where your wedding can take place. The photo opportunities are equally as impressive. From dramatic castle ruins to romantic rose arbours and secret gardens, the choices for your picture-perfect moments are endless.

If you are planning on a larger celebration then a marquee can be erected on the beautiful North Lawn, overlooking the impossibly romantic ruins of the Tithe Barn. The North Lawn sits on the private side of the castle, making this a most exclusive spot to celebrate your wedding.

Orangery and The Old Coach House

The impressive Orangery and historic Old Coach House offer a flexible and versatile space which can accommodate up to 150 guests in style, with spacious dining and celebration areas. The elegant glass structure is filled with light and is a timeless blank canvas that is yours to transform into your dream venue. The sublime views from the Orangery of the castle and across the terrace to the rolling Cotswold Hills beyond make for a truly unforgettable backdrop.

The Old Coach House is steeped in history, perfect for dancing the night away or dining within the castle walls. We can accommodate 80-100 guests in the Old Coach House, depending on your plans.
