Mont Orgueil castle is set in the beautiful parish of Grouville and is one of the finest examples of a medieval castle which stands majestically over the beautiful fishing village of Gorey for over 800 years. Mont Orgueil is also a symbol of Jersey’s national identity and independent character. There is so much history to this beautiful castle bringing a lot of uniqueness to your wedding or event. You and your guests can take in the breathtaking views of the French coast and the views really do set the scene of a fairytale backdrop. Built in the 13th century to protect the Island against the French, this jewel in Jersey's crown is one of the best-preserved castles in Britain and one of the most photographed sites in the Island.
The marquee which is located on the lower ward of the castle is a 9m x 18metre marquee with a rounded end which is perfect for a horseshoe top table so you get those spectacular shots behind you but you can also see all your guests during the meal and those special moments like toasts and cutting the cake. The marquee is set up at the start of the season which is usually around April and removed at the end which is September. Because the marquee location is very open to the elements these are the only times we usually offer a marquee event at the castle. Almost all aspects of the interior of the marquee can change and we will sit down with yourselves and go through all the different options in the marquee to meet your requirements.
We recommend a maximum of 100 guests in this marquee as it can only go up to a maximum of a 9m x 18m so this will seat your guests comfortably with a stage and dance floor. If there isn’t enough room inside the marquee for a free standing bar then we do offer the option of having a bar extension at the back next to the catering marquee. The venue offers toilet facilities on site which is just a short stroll from the marquee. Mont Orgueil has so many gorgeous areas to hold your ceremony and drinks reception. Follow the link to find more about these areas.
We always advise to speak with the lovely team at Jersey Heritage first to check availability etc and then we will take over and go through everything marquee with you. If this is the venue for you then get in touch and we look forward to speaking with you soon.
