Bellingham Castle is an exclusive and romantic wedding venue, where you and your guests can enjoy a truly magical day in complete privacy. The relaxing surroundings, the friendly staff, the sumptuous Bute Suite, the 19 luxury bedrooms and the fine food and wine will ensure that you have an unforgettable experience. The castle is also ideal for private functions, conferences and events.
Back in 1905, the castle was the venue for the romantic wedding celebrations of Augusta Mary Monica Bellingham, daughter of Sir Alan Bellingham, 4th Baronet; to the 4th Marquis of Bute, John Crichton-Stuart. As the society event of the year, the wedding attracted world media attention, from California to New Zealand. Today, more than a century later, Bellingham Castle is still an exclusive castle wedding venue.
We understand the need for privacy and so we only ever hire out the Castle on an exclusive-hire basis. This allows you and your special guests to enjoy the grand venue, stunning gardens and its magnificent views, with no interruption and total exclusivity. Bellingham Castle is licensed for Civil Wedding Ceremonies, or there is a quintessential countryside church just a short walk away in the village of Castlebellingham.
