Wedding Receptions at Belvoir Castle

Start your celebrations with a fabulous drinks reception with a choice of stunning settings for your drinks and canapes. On glorious summer days you might like to enjoy the colourful Rose Garden in front of the Castle or sip Champagne in the splendour of the Castle’s Picture Gallery, Ballroom or Guardroom.

Wedding breakfasts are served in the majestic State Dining Room, with seating for up to 120 guests.

After spending the formal part of your wedding day in the Castle’s stately rooms you have the opportunity to go ‘below stairs’ to continue your celebrations. Guests can choose to dance the night away in the atmospheric Old Kitchen, or relax on the comfortable leather furniture of the Old Servants Hall with its own bar. It really does give you the best of both worlds.

Wedding Menus

Belvoir Castle are passionate about providing the highest quality dining experience using only the best ingredients and promoting local produce at all times to create innovative, seasonal menus tailored to your personal tastes. The Castle has a comprehensive and creative range of wines, from the popular easy drinking styles through to the traditional and more unusual, rare and sought after products throughout the UK. The Castle’s Sommelier would be delighted to discuss your exact requirements with you.
