You do not have to have held your Ceremony at Whittington Castle in order to use the Castle Grounds for photographs. The grounds make an ideal romantic backdrop and a dramatic setting for your special day.
This will cost £50 and must be pr-booked. Please complete the attached booking form and confirm with manager Sue Ellis. Once we have confirmed you are then free to use the Castle Grounds for the purpose of taking photographs, videos. There is no time limit with this but please note the castle grounds will be open to the public.
We regret we do not allow wedding photography when we have our own booked civil ceremony at the Castle. Please check with manager date and time to avoid disapointment.
We can close the Gatehouse doors for you to have the drawbridge area for your exclusive use. If pre-arranged the tearoom can serve refreshments to your guests while they wait. Toilet facilities are available during opening hours only.
Whittington Castle is a historic monument and a site of special wildlife interest. It is important that all visitors respect the site and for this reason we regret that we do not allow rice or confetti to be thrown in the Castle grounds or building
However as an alternative you can purchase edible confetti which is safe for the local wildlife. We have teamed up with Shropshire Wildlife Trust to produce special bags safe for the ducks and Swans. Each bag sold helps this charity. This costs £2.00 per packet. Please ask for details.
