The versatility of this exclusive use castle as a wedding venue means you can choose from an outdoor ceremony in the gardens, a service at the church situated in the castle grounds, just a short walk away, or pledge your love for one another in the exquisite drawing room or dining room. Religious, civil and humanist ceremonies can all be arranged in whichever location you decide upon.
After your ceremony, comes the first part of your wedding celebrations: your drinks reception. This can be an outdoor affair, with guests mingling in the rose garden and across the croquet lawn, with flutes of fizz and exquisite canapés handed round by our immaculately turned out staff. Or enjoy drinks in the softly lit reception rooms, warmed by roaring log fires in the colder months, and surrounded by antiques and art from centuries past. And from the honey-hued stone of the castle walls to the immaculate gardens and magnificent trees, there are endless photo opportunities to capture your special day forever.
Dinner can take place in the Drawing Room or Dining Room, depending on numbers; fabulous food, expertly served and superbly presented are the hallmarks of Hickory wedding catering at Oxenfoord Castle.
Come the evening, it’s dancing time – and with lots of room for a traditional ceilidh it might be time to invite some extra guests. We can provide a late buffet or trays of bacon rolls, a cash bar and/or arrival drinks for evening guests.
This is just one example of how your special day might flow. But it’s YOUR special day, and at Hickory, we completely understand that everyone’s wishes are different. That’s why we have a dedicated wedding planner/designer looking after you right from the moment you choose Oxenfoord Castle. Making sure everything runs smoothly before and during the most important day of your lives.
