About

Farnham Castle is a stunning, iconic and exclusive multi-award-winning venue for Weddings, set in five acres of beautiful grounds, overlooking the historic, market town of Farnham, on the Surrey and Hampshire border.

Farnham Castle is a historic, exclusive-use venue located on the border of Surrey and Hampshire, offering beautiful wedding ceremony rooms, gorgeous grounds with unrivalled views, a characterful Great Hall and an in-house team of Chefs who create exquisite dining menus. Your wedding will be planned and delivered by our Specialist Wedding Planning Team; from your initial enquiry until the morning you depart Farnham Castle as newlyweds.

With years worth of experience between us, our experienced team will support and guide you through all of the different elements of your wedding planning journey, including being at your wedding to ensure it is delivered exactly as planned.

Farnham Castle

We offer an 8 am arrival to our Gatehouse and Pembroke so that you can prepare for your wedding early, whilst sipping fizz with brunch while your suppliers and our team put the finishing touches on the venue ahead of your wedding ceremony and further celebrations.

For weddings of any size, Farnham Castle offers 4 unique locations to make your vows, in addition to 2 Church of England chapels on-site, for couples who wish to hold a religious wedding ceremony, along with stunning grounds for couples wishing to celebrate an outdoor wedding.

When it comes to celebrating your wedding, the magnificent Great Hall can seat up to 210 guests and can increase to up to 350 for evening celebrations and dancing. In front of the Castle, The Great Lawn is the ultimate spot to host your post-wedding ceremony drinks reception and provides a perfect backdrop for memorable photography.

Food and drink are extremely important to us here at Farnham Castle, and our Head Chef, Simon, along with his team, has been creating inspirational menus for couples and wedding guests for over 18 years. If you decide to hold your wedding at Farnham Castle, you’ll be invited to one of our Menu and Wine tasting events, designed to give you a great insight into how we present our food.

We are also able to offer 33 en-suite single, double, twin and family rooms for your overnight guests, as well as an incredible Honeymoon Suite for you both, to enjoy on the night of your wedding. Breakfast is served the following morning in our Library - a stunning room located on the first floor of Farnham Castle offering the most spectacular views.

he perfect wedding day
My husband and I had the perfect wedding day at Farnham Castle, and I can't think of a more perfect venue. The whole team, front of house, back of house, bar and reception team were perfect. We were super lucky and had Gema as our contact and coordinator, who was extraordinary, and her attention to detail was outstanding. Farnham Castle is super lucky to have her on their team!

We couldn't have asked for a more
Thank you so much for all your help on our special day. The success of the day is definitely largely down to yourself, you were always helpful, calming and organised. We couldn't have asked for a more attentive wedding coordinator, and this was echoed by family and friends across our wedding group - thank you so much!

A lovely relaxed atmosphere
We wish to say we had a wonderful day yesterday - it was truly magical. The whole day was so well organized, but at the same time, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Your team were so professional - all so polite and courteous. Thank you so very much for making our daughter's wedding day such a success.

Our wedding day was simply the best
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us make our wedding dreams a reality. Our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without your expertise, support, and organisation throughout the entire planning process and the day itself. Our wedding day was simply the best day of our lives, and we will be eternally grateful that you were our wedding coordinator.
