Farnham castle weddings are the ultimate for a beautiful, elegant and romantic day. The former Bishops palace is the perfect wedding venue if you are planning to get married in Surrey.

Farnham Castle, a Multi Award-winning wedding venue.

Farnham Castle is steeped in history. More recently though, this stronghold of love has romance woven all through it. Today it has become an award-winning wedding venue with abundance to offer every couple who are marrying in Surrey. Together with venue staples like beautiful grounds, fine dining and guest accommodation that are available too. Then for me, I have to say that it also has some absolutely amazing spaces to decorate with flowers.

The Bride Tribe Preparations

First of all, on any wedding day you need to get ready. To accommodate this, the actual gatehouse has been beautifully converted. Brides at Farnham Castle weddings can then enjoy and make use of a perfect suit of rooms for you and all of your bridesmaids to get ready in. There is plenty of space to have your hair and make-up done, to get dressed and of course for me to deliver the boxes with the bride and bridesmaids bouquets, the flower-girl posies and any fresh hair flowers too.

Where to say “I do” at Farnham Castle Weddings

Next up of course is the ceremony. At Farnham Castle you will absolutely be spoiled for choice when choosing the location to say “I do”. In terms of the wedding ceremony this ancient fortress has no less than four licenced rooms, two Church of England Chapels AND a licence to hold outdoor ceremonies. This means that you have the choice of a civil ceremony or a church style service. Not forgetting the option of an al fresco ceremony in the summer months too! All of these nuptial places without exception give limitless scope for really beautiful floral displays.

Wedding Breakfast in the Great Hall

Or perhaps in this case a Castle feast usually follows the photographs on the day’s events. None of your guests I am sure will fail to be impressed by having a meal in the Great Hall. While for me I just love working in this magnificent Hall.

As far as the flower decorations go there are some immediately obvious areas to consider. You might choose statement florals to adorn the main focal-point, fireplace mantle-shelf for example. Your photographer will love that one as the perfect backdrop to the bridal party’s top table gathering. Then of course, as you have just seen in the previous photograph of me working on a platform. Chandelier garlands are super stunning and offer a bit more WOW factor too.

Splendid Table Centrepieces

The guest table centrepieces work decoration and colour right through the Great Hall with total ease. Because of the high ceilings and generous room proportions my top tip is to consider some tall vase displays. When making the designs I always keep the flowers well above head height to maintain clear sight lines for the diners whilst seated. Though a signature wispy Jasmine tendril or some thing similar with often subtly break the line.  As a wedding flower specialist, I believe clear sight lines are absolutely essential.
