The Chapel

The Chapel is by far the most popular place our couples choose to exchange their vows…

…The high vaulted white ceilings give the space a romantic and peaceful charm, and the tinted natural daylight which pours through the stained windows only adds to the ethereal atmosphere of the room.

The Chapel is one of our most unique spaces to get married in Colchester. The clean, pure ambience of the room echoes the feel of a real Chapel and this is what appeals most to our guests.

This room is perfect for ceremonies and receptions alike and can hold:

  • 80 guests for a ceremony
  • 80 guests for a wedding breakfast
  • 150 guests for an evening reception

As soon as we had a tour of the Castle and met with the team, we knew that we were going to have an unforgettable wedding ceremony. The staff were very responsive to any queries we had no matter how trivial. On the day, the venue looked beautiful and the staff were very clear guiding us through the ceremony. I can honestly say the Castle is a superb option for a wedding and worked very well with guests having access to the museum ahead of the ceremony. Please accept our huge thanks.
