Berkeley Castle is a splendid, beautiful and glorious medieval fortress and one of the most amazing wedding venues in the country. The castle is steeped in history and with its glorious gardens, it’s perfect for both Summer and Winter weddings. I’ve covered weddings here in the Summer and the winter. The gardens and castle grounds are perfect for photography during both seasons. During the winter there is a lovely cosy atmosphere inside with roaring open fires.

The focal point of this wedding venue is the stunning 16th Century grade 2 listed, Cotswold stone barn.

The Great Tythe Barn retains all its original features whilst incorporating all the comforts of the 21st Century. The walled garden and courtyard provide the perfect location for a drinks reception during the summer months.
