Downton Abbey Hiclere Castle Wedding

posted by Geoff

This is undoubtedly one of the  most prestigious and unique Wedding Venues I have played in to date. Downton Abbey Hiclere Castle Wedding for Tracey and Greg.

Downton Abbey Hiclere Castle Wedding, Hampshire.

Wedding-Venue-Downton-AbbeyImagine getting married in a castle! Having the whole place to yourself, enjoying your wedding day with acres and acres of grounds to roll your eyes at through the window during the Wedding Breakfast. Hiclere Castle, famous for the fictional setting for the TV series Downton Abbey was Tracey and Greg’s chosen Wedding Venue, and they chose me to DJ. Tracey has previously booked me to DJ at huge parties for the London bank she worked for, with a string of high class venues including The Hilton Hotel Park Lane, London.  The Grand Hotel in Brighton,  and another in Charring Cross and Mayfair. Tracey wanted an amazing Wedding Venue and she chose Downton Abbey Hiclere Castle in Hampshire for this magical setting.

I found the entrance sign for Downton Abbey, and followed an incredibly long drive way past fields and rolling scenery, until suddenly, in the distance Hiclere Castle became very visible! As I drew up, I had to stop and take a picture! I only had my phone with me having forgotten to bring my camera! Above is the sight that greeted me!

Downton-Abbey-Hiclere-CastleWith imposing stone work and architecture, and even a full sized wolf’s head with a sheep’s leg in it’s mouth for a door knocker, this place was something else!

Inside Downton Abbey Hiclere Castle there was a huge library which formed the room for the wedding breakfast, with woodwork and carvings on every wall. It made you feel like a King or Queen being surrounded by such opulence.

There was so much to look at inside Downton Abbey your mind couldn’t take it all in in one go.

Wedding-Reception-Hiclere-CastleI made my way through to the main gallery which was to host the Wedding Reception evening entertainment, and form the dancing area.

 

 

 

 

Wedding-Venue-Hiclere-CastleHuge Gothic archways and the widest staircase i’ve seen swept down into the main hall. Big paintings on every wall, carved woodwork, endless archways. I set up the disco equipment, and while waiting for the speeches to finish, I was shown to my own private room and a waiter brought me a 2 course roast dinner cooked to perfection!

 

 

 

First-DanceThe bride and groom had their first dance, photographers and guests cameras flashed away, Downton Abbey Hiclere Castle was such an idyllic setting for a fairytale wedding. The dancing began, and I made my way through the three A4 page play list.

The whole evening went so quickly. The dance floor was packed for most of the evening apart from when the hot buffet was served. Understandably, people weren’t going to miss out on it having tasted the food earlier in the day!

 

 

 

Notably, the staff were all absolutely brilliant! Service was outstanding, everyone very polite, and not ‘stuffy’. Everything ran on time, everyone was well attended to, attention to detail in every way.

Downton-Abbey-WeddingSo, if you want an exquisite wedding venue, with charm, character, the largest fireplace and the longest driveway ever, Hiclere Castle aka Downton Abbey Hampshire will not disappoint.
