Same Sex Marriages

Express your love for each other in a Ceremony at Hertford Castle

At Hertford Castle  we believe there are no differences no matter who you are, and that every Wedding is the life and love pledge of two people.

Couples often wish to create their own traditions to start married life and we recognise that a Wedding should be personalised in your own way.

Whether you are planning a formal affair or a relaxed intimate ceremony you can exchange your vows amongst friends and family within the elegant rooms of the Downshire Suite. 

Exclusive Hire of The Salisbury Room, Mayors Parlour and the Victorian glass conservatory offers you the versatility and choice to welcome from 2 – 60 guests.

The rooms within the suite feature beautiful fireplaces and grand sash windows that overlook the walled gardens and formal lawn. 

Weddings should be personal and reflective of your union and our experienced team can guide and assist you in organising your day. 

Our affordable packages offer soft drinks or Prosecco and also include chair covers and a range of coloured sashes to complement your own individual style.

Once your ceremony has concluded the Castle is the perfect setting to celebrate with a Drinks Reception and discover the beautiful gardens alongside the river Lea, surrounded with ancient trees and enclosed by its original stone and flint turreted walls, echoing the historic architecture to capture those special Wedding photographs
