WEDDING CEREMONY’S AND RECEPTIONS
Leeds Castle offers two historic venues to hold your wedding ceremony and and yet more choices for your wedding reception, large or small across the estate.
Suggested capacity: Ceremony and dining 70 – 100 guests
THE MAIDEN’S TOWER
Set on Castle Island, the 16th century Maiden’s Tower with its private walled garden overlooking the moat, is a glamorous self-contained venue which provides the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony, evening dining and overnight accommodation for the bride and family.
Make your way down the ancient oak staircase, festooned with flowers and into the historic Long Gallery for the wedding service. After the ceremony, dinner will be called in The Tudor Hall, a wonderful setting for a delicious fine dining experience. The garden will be available on a fine evening for your guests to mingle and your photographer to take beautiful photographs there or in the grounds of the Castle.
Suggested capacity: Ceremony and dining 50 – 80 guests
THE FAIRFAX HALL
For couples who would prefer a smaller wedding ceremony, but wish to invite many more people for evening celebrations, The Fairfax Hall, a 17th Century Kentish timber-framed barn, is the ideal venue. Doors leading out on to the terrace provide spectacular views of the historic Castle and whilst your guests enjoy the hospitality of the Leeds Castle staff, you will be free to capture some of the history with stunning photographs taken in the grounds and gardens.
Suggested capacity: Reception for 100 – 200
It may be that you would like to invite well over 200 guests and on these occasions a marquee on the Cedar Lawn provides great space and flexibility. The wedding team at Leeds Castle will work with you to ensure everything is tailored to your wishes for a truly memorable reception.
Suggested capacity: Reception for 200 or over
