The feel

Hever Castle was once Anne Boleyn’s childhood home in Kent, and has preserved the grandeur of her history to make her a most majestic wedding place.

With three stunning locations on this country estate, whether it’s the majestic grandiosity of the castle itself, The Astor Wing’s country house atmosphere, or The Guthrie Pavilion ‘s stunning lakeside location, Hever Castle offers a dream come true location for your special day. Catered for small groups, exuberant celebrations, outdoor weddings etc.

The Astor Wing:

The Astor Wing is Hever Castle private wing, built in 1903 by William Waldorf Astor in Tudor style. The Astor Wing offers peace, tranquilly and seclusion in one of the most historic and beautiful settings in England and offers an exclusive use venue. Overlooking the Castle and formal lawns, the oak panelled Tudor Suite Sitting Room provides the perfect ambience for an intimate ceremony for up to 60 guests. In The Music Room, or, weather permitting, on the Tudor Suite Terrace overlooking the croquet lawn and moat, reception drinks are taken. The Tudor Suite Dining Room will host up to 60 guests for a wedding brunch, decorated in oak panelling and featuring a beautiful fireplace. For up to 120 guests, the Moat Restaurant can be transformed into a spacious music and dance venue.

Hever Castle Inner Hall and Dining Hall:

The Castle Inner Hall and Castle Dining Room are available for hire for wedding ceremonies and celebrations during the winter months. The splendour of the charming Hever Castle boasts in Italian walnut ornate panelling and carved columns. There is an impressive minstrel gallery, a fine collection of antique furniture, original paintings and a splendid working fireplace for a roaring log fire.


Italian Garden:

Summer months see the Award Winning Italian Garden come alive as marriages take place beneath the Italian Loggia ‘s stunning arched columns overlooking the 38 acre bay. This beautiful lakeside venue can also be added to your drinks reception where visitors can admire the views from the stone piazza, complete with our own inspired Trevi fountain. The Guthrie Pavilion stands a short walk north. Extensively renovated in Palladian style, the vaulted ceilings and full length arched windows create a light and airy atmosphere that keeps the lake and gardens in a romantic backdrop.

The Guthrie Pavilion is also suited to round off your special day with a licence until 1.00am for evening receptions and discos or live bands.

Five star hotel accommodation as part of the reception is available as booking.

Now available for a marquee wedding is The Winter Garden Lawn.
