Mont Orgueil Castle - Wedding Venue - Jersey Heritage

The perfect castle wedding setting, with spectacular views of the Island’s east coast and across the sea to France. This historic castle makes the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony or reception.


Mont Orgueil Castle is one of the best-preserved castles in Britain and one of the most striking and attractive sites in the Island. It makes a perfect location for a castle wedding, with wonderful views across the sea. Your guests will be amazed at this historic wedding venue and this castle will be a backdrop to a wedding ceremony that will never be forgotten.

Built in the 13th century to protect the Island against the French, this dramatic castle towers over the harbour at Gorey. With spectacular views of the Island’s east coast and across the sea to France, it makes the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony or reception.

Civil ceremonies are held in the candlelit Medieval Great Hall at the very top of the castle with views across to France. Religious ceremonies can take place inside the Chapel of St George or at an outside altar at the heart of the castle that creates the most stunning and unique venue for a ceremony.

After, your ceremony drinks can be held in a number of beautiful locations such as the de Carteret Garden, the Middle Ward or the Grand Battery whilst your guests enjoy the views across the bay. Wedding receptions can be held in a marquee in the lower castle or in a choice of impressive rooms inside the castle.
