The feel

‘A Wedding Day to Remember’ and a perfect setting for a ‘Stately Home’ wedding.

Sherborne Castle is a wonderful stately venue for Civil Marriage Ceremonies, Civil Partnerships and Wedding Receptions. Built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594 and the Digby family home since 1617, with lake and gardens landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown, the Castle and Lakeside Gardens provide both a beautiful and historic setting for a stately home wedding.

The Castle has three rooms licenced for ceremonies; the Solarium, Sir Walter Raleigh¹s original front parlour (seating 60 people) and the Tudor Entrance Hall (30 people) within the Castle, and outside, elegantly landscaped within the surrounding lakeside gardens, the beautiful C18th lakeside Orangery (80 people).

Just a short distance from the Castle, the Orangery also provides a light and airy setting for Wedding Receptions. It can accommodate a small celebration of up to 40 guests seated, but is most often used for larger weddings as the reception area to an adjoining lakeside marquee; this marquee arrangement can increase the guest number to approximately 200 people. Together with the Gingko Lawn and lake pier, the Castle and surrounding Gardens make this a truly romantic and magical setting ­ not to mention a wedding photographer’s paradise! Our Reception facilities are offered on a venue only basis, enabling couples to create their very own character for their special day. A full Suppliers List is provided.
