Picton Weddings & Civil Services
Featured in ‘Britain’s Finest’ 2014 as one of the ‘Top 10 Fairytale Castles’ to say ‘I Do’ in, Picton Castle offers one of the most beautiful and romantic locations for your wedding celebrations.
Situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and surrounded by 40 acres of gardens including a maze, scented walled garden, play areas and two unique guest lodges ideal for the bridal party or close family, this rare 13th Century castle was a treasured family home for over 700 years and its stunning interiors are famous for their Georgian elegance and original contents.
Your Wedding Day
Wedding Days at Picton Castle are special because we go out of our way to make them so…
On the day, the historic Main Gates and Drive, which was used by Her Majesty the Queen’s visit in 2014, will be opened for you and your guests.
Bridal couples have shown lots of imagination in booking their wedding transport. We have seen everything from a host of different horse-drawn vehicles and fabulous vintage cars to modern limos – even helicopters on the South Lawn!
Our dedicated team will be on hand to greet early guests, giving them the choice of gathering in the Great Hall, enjoying the gardens or perhaps popping into our Restaurant for tea.
For your musical accompaniment you are welcome to use our beautiful Steinway grand piano. The acoustics in the Great Hall are perfect so that whatever your choice of music, the sound will be glorious.
You can be assured that we will make sure it is a day you will never forget!
What could be more romantic than to exchange vows in the magnificent Great Hall?
With its Minstrel’s Gallery, this elegant room can accommodate up to 100 guests for your celebration. For more intimate occasions, the Regency or White and Gold Drawing Rooms are also available.
The Sparkling Wine Reception is held in the state rooms of the castle, allowing your guests to enjoy their glass of bubbly in elegant surroundings after the ceremony.
The marquee site for your reception, if required, is on the sheltered North Lawn of the castle which opens onto the castle lawns and provides an enchanting atmosphere for your special day, and a lovely backdrop for photographs.
Catering is provided by our in-house Restaurant, Maria@Picton. Our own celebrity chef Maria Grimwood was responsible for designing and preparing a three course luncheon for HRH Her Majesty the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh when they visited Picton in the early summer of 2014. Maria herself was also seen on TV cooking for Celebrity Chef Nigel Slater in the summer of 2015 so you can be assured that you will be in very safe hands!
Maria’s passion for food begins with selecting the best quality local ingredients, and she and her team will design a menu to suit your personal taste and budget.
