Wedding and celebration premises at Rockelstad Castle
Rockelstad is a fairy-tale castle, exactly as romantic as a fairy-tale castle should be.
Here you find genuine and original surroundings for weddings at a manor house that has
not turned into a commercial hotel. Because of this we also offer a different concept than
most other castles.
Facilities and premises for weddings
There are three facilities to use as dining room, for wedding reception and dance/night party.
This makes it possible to prepare the different locations in advance and get a working agenda for the whole weekend
We rent out our houses and facilities with the possibility to stay over as many you find it reasonable to place.
The beautiful nearby church in Helgesta lies on a hill overlooking the lake. The way from the church to the castle is superb for a
ride in a horse-and-carriage, which is available near the estate, and can often be arranged through our previous stable-manager
An other alternative is to conduct ceremony outdoors at the magnificent stone bridge by the lake. Three stone stairs and a long walk past boxwood hedges
give you a fabulous entry-march.
Inside the castle there is kind of apartment with three very nice suites. These are often used
as Wedding suites. One of them is normally
used for the wedding couple and the other for marschalks, assistants or parents. These are no modern hotel rooms, but original rooms
with antique interiors and an exclusive shower & toilet to each room.
If the weather permits it is popular to have the wedding reception outside, fronting the castle. The bottom floor of the castle
is also a very nice place to have the reception if the weather turns bad, or if you want to show your guests a very antique
and original environment with a lot of subjects for inspiring conversations.
Our main dining room named "Crystal hall" is in the east wing near our main kitchens. It has a fantastic park and lake view.
The room consists of an original smaller dining room and a later added glass veranda. With nice oak floors, high panels, crystal chandeliers, custom made
tables and from 2007 also custom made chairs in Baroque style. The dining room can take 92 sitting guests, if you want to be more than 92,
you have to come and test yourself. It might work depending on your combination of guests, children and free view in the dining room.
Party after dinner
After dinner the party normally continues with dance and bar in the lakeside house called Brygghuset. We have disco stereo equipment to rent.
You bring your own liquor and decide how long the party shall go on.
