For many, the appeal of a castle wedding is its grandeur; the chance to live a fairytale for a day. Alnwick Castle’s Guest Hall lends itself beautifully to this ideal, offering a grand space for you and your guests to dine, drink and celebrate.

The hall adds a historic atmosphere to wedding celebrations, with its beautifully restored beamed roof and stone archways.

This stunning banqueting hall is available throughout the year for wedding ceremonies, and receptions and can accommodate up to 200 guests for ceremonies and 160 for wedding breakfasts.

The Guest Hall is licensed with its own bar, and there is plenty of room for dancing! You will also have the use of the Castle Courtyard, allowing your guests to spill out onto the cobbles and mingle within the grand stone walls.

During the Castle's open season, you can enjoy drinks on the Gun terrace, with sweeping views across the 'Capability’ Brown parkland beyond—the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.

We believe no two weddings are the same. Because our weddings are far from standard, we don’t offer standard wedding packages.

To allow us to craft a day that’s as individual as you are, we offer bespoke pricing, meaning you can choose each element of your day. At Alnwick Castle, your wedding can be as lavish or understated as you like.

Civil Ceremonies

The Guest Hall is available for both ceremonies and receptions. Your dedicated wedding coordinator will help you plan your perfect day, making your dreams a reality. However, our couples must contact their local registry office to arrange their civil ceremony.

You can find your nearest registry office here if you’re from further afield, or contact the Northumberland Registration Service on +44 (0) 1665 602 870 or
