Colchester Castle

The feel

Colchester Castle provides a stunning, unique setting for your wedding day with over two thousand years’ worth of history surrounding you and your guests. As a working museum, this venue is unlike any other in the area and allows you to enjoy the galleries during your day. It houses some beautiful backdrops for photographs including the wooden bridge, spiral stone staircases and priceless artefacts. The award winning Castle Park is also a stone’s throw away, allowing you completely privileged photo opportunities unlike any others you will find in the area.

The Chapel: There are many distinctive areas of the Castle which are licensed for ceremonies, but the most popular by far is The Chapel which has stunning high white vaulted ceilings and a romantic peaceful charm. If you are looking for an exceptional room with an ethereal feel, The Chapel is the perfect space.

The Charles Grey Room: This luxurious suite is a popular private area of the Museum for Wedding Breakfasts, where your Top Table can sit in front of an ornate wooden mantelpiece which dates back to 1600. There are also three large doors directly opposite the fireplace which can be opened to offer a vista over the museum galleries while you eat and celebrate the night away.
