A little history of your chosen wedding venue in essex

The Colchester Castle:


the Charles Gray Room is our most popular private space within the Museum to hold a Wedding Breakfast. It comfortably holds up to 80 guests seated, making it an appealing and intimate space to spend time with your family and friends.
Usually a Top Table sits in front of a beautiful ornate wooden mantelpiece which dates back to the 1600s. Directly opposite the fireplace are three large doors which can also be opened to offer a vista over the museum galleries while you eat or dance the night away.
This room is ideal for dinners and wedding breakfasts:
80 guests for a ceremony
80 guests for a wedding breakfast
200 guests for an evening reception when combined with the Chapel only as no dancing is permitted in this suite


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
