The Setting

Beautiful Rockingham Castle, perched atop an escarpment has dominated the Welland Valley for almost 950 years. The Castle sits on the outskirts of Northamptonshire near Corby. Built during the reign of William the Conqueror, and owned by the Crown for nearly 500 years, and has since been a family home to the Saunders Watsons for 450 years.

The Vibe

The Castle is a treasure trove of artefacts and artworks which are magnificently surrounded by 18 acres of formal gardens. This 950 year old Great Hall offers the perfect historic setting to say “I do”. For couples considering a church blessing, the beautiful parish church of Rockingham, St Leonard’s, sits within the grounds.

At Rockingham Castle they pride themselves on their versatile wedding breakfast options which can be adapted for your needs. Whether you prefer a classic style, rustic romance or a vintage vibe, Walker’s House can be transformed to fit your style.

The beautifully romantic gardens contain a striking 17th Century yew hedge, a colourful rose garden in the old keep, and a wild garden with over 200 species of trees and shrubs. The flourishing gardens are a stunning backdrop to frame the special moments of your wedding day.

Whether your heart is set on a formal or relaxed experience, a grand celebration, or something more intimate, they cater for all, and their dedicated wedding team will work with you so that your wishes come true. Holding your special day at Rockingham Castle is a chance to become part of history.
