This pocket-sized castle means you don't need a Royal Wedding-style guest list to have a do fit for a princess.


Bring the outdoors in and exchange vows in the intimate plant-filled Winter Garden conservatory or for a bigger party the pretty walled garden can seat 120. Either way, the majestic setting and views of the Sussex countryside will royally impress your guests.

If you want a majestic venue of a more intimate size, Wadhurst Castle could be just what you're looking for.

A petite pile overlooking the Sussex countryside, Wadhurst still has the turrets and ramparts (as well as gorgeous gardens), but you don't need to invite your oddball second cousins in order to fill it. The Walled Garden is ideal for an alfresco ceremony, or bring the outside in with a service in the plant-filled Winter Garden conservatory.

The Castle even makes its own rose-petal confetti.

Ceremony capacity: 100; Corkage: £0
