A perfect venue for a wedding
For those brides who've dreamed of a romantic wedding in a castle, we can make that dream come true with a civil ceremony here at Bodiam. Picture yourself walking across the bridge to our beautiful castle, taking vows under the gatehouse tower and leaving with your very own 'knight in shining armour'.
A romantic backdrop for your wedding breakfast
The castle and grounds provide a romantic backdrop for wedding receptions. Our chosen partner, Anise Catering, can tailor a marquee and menu to suit your theme and budget. We can also arrange for themed entertainment or a falconry display by The Hawking Centre
A very special place to get married
As the castle is open daily, ceremonies take place between 8-10am in the morning or 6-8pm in the evening. Receptions and wedding breakfasts can be at any time but this will be alongside our normal visitors. After hours bride, groom and photographer are permitted in the castle for photographs, whilst guests are free to wander through the castle grounds, enjoying the peace and tranquility and views across the Rother Valley.
If you are planning a wedding and would like more details of a civil ceremony at the castle, with or without a wedding breakfast or if you would just like to hold your reception here and would like to visit to discuss your plans, please contact Jane Coveney, Support Services Manager on 01580 831325 or by e-mail.
