Empirical events wedding fair at Herstmonceux Castle.


 The largest and best up to yet wedding fayre “by Empirical Events” that I have been to was held yesterday at Herstmonceux Castle…

This is yet another one of those hidden gems you see me mention many times, I love the drive up to these historic, luxurious wedding venues.

The drive up to it is amazing, miles of unspoilt countryside, it is adjacent to The Observatory Science Centre (I wish I knew that before going, my SatNav sent me to an unknown place after I entered the post code, I should of entered Wartling Road!).

Mind you, I did enjoy the drive…

Finally there, wow, outstanding, an historic 15th century castle right in front of me with a moat and everything, I could really imagine anyone’s wedding being held here…

The venue has been kept original so unfortunately the first floor isn’t suitable for people who have difficulty with steps and tight spaces, but the lower grounds is perfectly reachable.

There’re eight formal themed gardens which are all amazing and so well looked after, (Good backdrops for your wedding photos.) it tells the history of Medieval England right through to the romance of Renaissance Europe.

It is fully licensed for your wedding or civil partnership celebration, which can also be held outside in the gardens weather permitting also accommodating up to 180 people inside and theres a special, very exclusive bedroom for the couple to get ready and stay overnight in that I wouldn’t take a photo of as they don’t want to over commercialise it, I myself have been in many exclusive rooms so you’ll just have to take my word for granted, until you make the reservation…

Imagine the day, your guests arriving through the gates and seeing the fantastic “fantasy” castle wedding venue that their loved one will be getting married in.

Empirical events had 60-70 wedding suppliers dotted all areas of the castle making the day exciting and memorable, whilst in the courtyard, you could watch a perfect little bridal catwalk show that made the day stand out.
