There are many beautiful castles in Sweden, around 160 that are well preserved. Of these 160 castles, 11 are royal and many of them are available to celebrate your wedding. Here I share five of my absolute favorites among castles in Sweden for your castle wedding.
Rosersberg Castle was founded in 1634 by Gabriel Bengtsson Oxenstierna and is one of the 11 royal castles in Sweden.
Here you will find beautiful castle halls with high ceilings, a generous castle park with extensive lawns and the shimmering waters of Mälaren as a backdrop. In the castle’s own castle chapel, there is the possibility of both civil and church weddings.
The cocktail hour is best enjoyed on the castle terrace, then a three-course dinner with wines selected by their sommelier is served in the dining room. For those of you who want to extend the wedding weekend, a brunch the day after with family and friends is a perfect way to end the wedding weekend.
The castle has 63 hotel rooms in three different wings, all warm & cozy with a historical touch.
Rosersbergs Slottshotell in Sigtuna is just a short journey from central Stockholm and Uppsala. It is also close to Arlanda Airport, which makes it easy to gather family and friends from all over the world and give them an experience they will not soon forget.
Kronovall’s wine castle is nestled in the south of Sweden, surrounded by rapeseed fields and beautiful meadows.
The wedding ceremony can be held in the beautiful castle garden, and for those of you who wish to have a church wedding, you are close to Fågeltofta church, 1 km from the castle, and St. Olof’s medieval cross church, one of Skåne’s oldest churches, 5 km from Kronovall
The wedding dinner is set up in the castle’s empire drawing room, which is decorated with ceiling paintings and gold leaf decorations. In the large empire salon, it is possible to accommodate 68 guests, but by spreading out in different salons, you can have up to 110 seated wedding guests.
At Kronovall’s wine castle, there is room for 46 overnight guests in the 23 beautiful castle rooms.
Rånäs castle is beautifully situated next to the lake Skedviken’s and, in addition to a fantastic exterior, has several ballrooms with high ceilings and Moroccan floors. Ideal for wedding couples seeking an authentic royal experience. There is also a magically beautiful bridal suite on the castle’s top floor.
Outside the castle there are several beautiful places for the wedding ceremony, regardless of whether it suits you best to be outside in the leafy park or by the sparkling lake.
At Rånäs castle there are 35 double rooms and 14 single rooms. In the Galleriet dining room there is room for 100 seated guests and if you are more than 75 overnight guests you have exclusive exclusive rights to the castle and surrounding buildings.
Överås Castle is located in Örgryte, Gothenburg – a short distance from Liseberg and Sankt Sigfridsplan.
The castle was built in 1861-1862. The white palace, itself a jewel against the dark rock wall, was formerly adorned with exquisite works of sculpture and painting within. Today, some parts of the old fixtures remain, such as the unique environment with the stucco walls and the elegant self-supporting staircase in the Great Hall. Like the library and billiards room with furnishings from Nordiska Kompaniet and with leather wallpaper on the walls.
The banquet hall is the castle’s party room and it is directly adjacent to the fantastic vestibule, library and billiards room. The vestibule is perfect for grand entrances, singing, dancing, music and mingling.
If you want to get married civilly and want to be indoors, the vestibule is the right place. For outdoor wedding ceremonies, there are several beautiful locations in the beautiful garden around the castle.
The banquet hall at Överås holds over 100 guests and if you use the glass verandas and connecting rooms, even more guests can be accommodated. You rent the entire Överås castle and thus have the opportunity to bring your own food, drinks and serving staff.
Noor’s castle is beautifully located in the countryside but still close to everything. The castle is located fifteen minutes from Arlanda, 45 minutes from Stockholm and 25 minutes from central Uppsala. Noor’s castle is Sweden’s smallest baroque palace and the castle building is more than 300 years old.
The castle still has its original plank floors, doors and fixed carpentry fittings preserved from the time of construction in the 1690s. There are also furnishings and decorative paintings preserved from the 18th century.
The castle has 25 bedrooms with 50 beds for your wedding guests and for those who wish, the outdoor wedding ceremony can be held in the beautiful park behind the castle.
