Beautiful and Amazing

Hannah and Dean

Bamburgh Castle was a beautiful and amazing place to get married. Chris who was our contact was so helpful, he gave us tips to ensure everything ran smoothly and really went out of his way to help. I couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else.

Impeccable Service

Alexandra and Chermine

Because the service was absolutely impeccable, the venue could not have been more magical and Bamburgh castle is the most unique venue on Earth offering a beautiful ornate hall, an atmospheric Keep hall (at short notice thanks to the rain!), a lovely terrace with incomparable views and a marquee that we were welcomed to dress as we wanted. All in all, luxurious, special and stunning!

Simply Fantastic

Bethany and Nigel

The Bamburgh Castle team made our wedding simply fantastic. As well as having the natural advantage of having one of the most beautiful landmarks and views in the North, the level of personal service we received was excellent. Chris Calvert and his team were very accommodating of our unusual requests and put us at ease throughout the entire process. I would heartily recommend the castle to anyone looking for a special and memorable wedding venue.

Stunning Backdrop

Wendy and Edward

Bamburgh castle is the most stunning backdrop for any wedding ceremony. The great hall gave a real sense of occasion and would fit for a formal or informal ceremony like ours. .The view from the Battery terrace where champagne was served afterwards with utmost efficiency is second to none . The help and support pre the ceremony provided by Chris the administrator at the castle was superb and his wife helped out on the day also. I cannot imagine a more perfect venue anywhere.

Thank you

Natalie and Brian

Arranging a wedding from 350 miles away is no mean feat and Chris at Bamburgh Castle was amazingly helpful and responsive at all times. He recommended suppliers, helped us with wedding music at the last minute when plans fell through and made sure the ceremony ran smoothly. The team is very experienced and should be commended for the way in which they manage weddings at the castle. It's an amazing, beautiful venue and makes for a unique and special wedding.
