Colchester Castle throws open its historic doors on Sunday 1 October, 11am-3pm, for the Colchester Events Company's first ever wedding showcase at the Castle, highlighting the range of atmospheric and unique wedding venues that Colchester has to offer. 

This not-to-be-missed FREE event is an essential day out for every bride and groom-to-be in Colchester and beyond. Visitors must obtain an admission ticket via Eventbrite. This ticket will also give you reduced price entry to Colchester Castle at £4.80 valid for one person until 30 November 2017. There will also be a chance to win a wedding ceremony at Colchester Castle (worth £475) for every couple who registers for an Eventbrite ticket and enters the competition on the day. 

Couples will be able to visit a wide selection of stands and displays by exclusive local wedding suppliers covering all areas needed to plan the perfect wedding, from photographers and florists to DJs. Crucially, couples will have a unique opportunity to view the stunning rooms available within Colchester Castle, which are available for wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts, evening buffets and after-parties. 

Apart from the Castle as a wedding venue, couples will be able to discover more information about the Town Hall, Castle Park and the exclusive Summer House, and larger venues such as Charter Hall, suitable for ethnic weddings. There are exclusive rates for those choosing any combination of these venues for their celebration.
