Hever Castle is a gem in the heart of the Garden of England. The double-moated Castle is shrouded in a glorious creeping Boston ivy, which turns a rich, deep red during late Autumn, and the Medieval gatehouse still retains a working drawbridge and portcullis making for iconic photographs.
Three areas are available for your “I dos.” The Castle Inner Hall can accommodate 60 nearest and dearest. The ornate panelled walls, antiques and open log fire lend themselves beautifully to a winter wonderland wedding. The Tudor Suite Sitting Room in the Astor Wing, an Edwardian extension built onto the Castle in 1903, can host 60 too. This exclusive space opens onto the nearby lawns, which overlook the Castle itself. The award-winning Italian Gardens showcase original statues from Rome and a Trevi-inspired fountain, and are located alongside the stunning Loggia outside ceremony space, overlooking the 38-acre boating lake. The Loggia can play host to anywhere from 70 to 180 guests.
The Guthrie Pavilion can accommodate 180 guests for the reception and is situated next to the rose garden, which is illuminated into the evening. For more intimate celebrations, The Astor Wing can host up to 60, who can enjoy evening entertainment here and perhaps take a night cap into the Billiards or Music Room. The Winter Garden Lawn is available for marquee hire allowing you and your guests to enjoy the gardens during your afternoon reception.
