Chillingham Castle, wedding venue
A unique wedding venue close to the Northumbrian Coast
Curious Tent Hire reccommends Chillingham Castle as a spectacular venue for tented weddings and events; its beautiful Italian gardens and extensive lawns are perfect for outdoor receptions.
We discovered Chillingham earlier this year when we brought our 30ft giant Bell Tent along for a wedding in late June; we were instantly struck by the impressive 12th Century castle. Chillingham is well maintained and surounded by extensive gardens, woodlands and lakes. The formal Italian garden dates back to 1828, when it was created by Royal garden designer Sir Jeffrey de Wyatville.
This is the real deal in terms of a historical castle. Think stone flagged floors, armour, weapons, heavy wooden tables and antique tapestries draped on the walls.
Bringing our tents to Chillimgham
For weddings of up to 200 guests our Arched Wedding Tent will look magnificinet on the South Lawn of the Castle. The vaulted canvas ceiling and wooden archways will perfectly complement the backdrop of the castle. This tent, made in white cotton-based canvas, is wonderfully spacious and full of light.
Our awnings and Giant Bell Tents are ideal for ceremonies, drinks receptions, garden bars and dancing spaces.
Chillingham Castle is liscensed for civil ceremonies, which can take place in the Elizabethan Great Hall or the mediaeval Minstrel’s Hall. Gardens, Lakes and Grounds are available to guests. And Cathy the wedding co-ordinator is available to help with all the arrangements.
