There are three beautifully located Marquee sites within the Castle grounds, all with spectacular views of the Castle, 15th Century Ruins and surrounded by the Cotswold Hills.
The North Lawn is the private lawn of the Dent Brocklehurst Family and is situated close to the Castle, overlooking the 15th Century ruins of the Tithe Barn, beautiful gardens and carp pond. This lawn can accommodate a marquee for 500 plus guests, which for many of our Asian clients is perfect.
The Hop Field has amazing views over the Queens' Garden and the 15th Century Ruins of the original Banqueting Hall, and again can accommodate over 500 wedding guests if required.
The Mulberry Lawn, named so as it is bordered on one side by ancient Mulberry Trees, is the smallest of our sites, set close to the Castle and the Ruins of the original Banqueting Hall. This lawn can accommodate up to 180 guests and makes a more intimate setting.
The Medieval Banqueting Hall
This hall is an ideal Castle setting with its baronial armour, banners, flagstone floor and roaring fire if required and looks wonderful in candlelight. The hall can accommodate 100 guests for either a civil ceremony between November and March or a wedding breakfast all year round.
The Dent Brocklehurst Family’s Private Library
Situated within the Family’s Private apartments, The Library is a truly striking room filled with antiques, fine art, a unique Sheldon tapestry and beautifully bound leather books. This room is perfect for a more intimate civil ceremony and can also be used for the wedding breakfast for up to 25 guests.
Situated within the Sudeley Castle Country Cottage complex, Chandos Hall has a peaceful and intimate feel and can accommodate up to 60 guests for a civil ceremony.
St Mary’s Chapel
St Mary’s Chapel is truly magical and is situated within the heart of the grounds and the award winning gardens of the Castle. It invites you to celebrate your marriage and re-affirm your vows in a traditional setting. The Chapel can accommodate just over 100 guests.
