Welcome to our romantic Castle Wedding Venue
Searching for a romantic and stylish wedding venue? Sandenburg is a private country estate set in the heart of The Netherlands. The fairytale like Sandenburg Castle, with its white walls and towers, forms a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding day. The Castle has been inhibited by the counts and countesses Van Lynden van Sandenburg since 1795.
Wedding Ceremony in the Orangery
The wedding ceremony takes place in the charming, whitewashed Orangery. The Orangery is situated in the park of Sandenburg Castle and features a stunning view of the Castle. Historically, the Orangery was used to house our palm trees and orange trees during the winter. Today it is an official wedding venue of the municipality Wijk bij Duurstede. The Orangery is a luminous, seven-meter high hall. The high windows and beautiful natural light make it especially suitable for wedding photography. Outside, in front of the Castle and Orangery, you will find many nooks for your photo shoot.
Are you dreaming of an outdoor wedding? Don’t worry about the fickle Dutch weather. In the Orangery, with its three glass walls and seven large garden doors, you feel outside in nature, even when you’re inside. In spring and summer we open the large garden doors, letting in breeze and birdsong. Maybe you will be visited by the peacocks or pheasants that freely roam the gardens! The Orangery has its own garden and a wonderfully sunny terrace.
Intimate and Personal
Sandenburg is the perfect fit for couples seeking an intimate location for their wedding day. The Orangery is exclusively at your disposal the entire day. You can style the hall with flowers or other decorations that compliment your wedding theme. Our caterer will translate your special wishes into a festive lunch, reception, or dinner. A stylish wedding dinner at long tables in the Orangery; a bohemian chic lunch beneath the old pear trees; a walking dinner or a BBQ; all is possible.
Bridal room in Sandenburg Castle
Treat yourselves to a romantic start of your wedding day! Sandenburg Castle features a beautiful getting-ready room for the bride. The groom sees his bride in her wedding dress for the first time as the doors of the Castle open and she appears on top of the steps. The bridal room is situated at the front of the Castle, with a view of the Orangery. Alternatively, you make your entrance together, through the cast-iron castle gates opposite the Orangery.
The Orangery is suitable for a ceremony, lunch, or dinner with up to 88 guests, and a reception with up to 120 guests. Since the Orangery is situated in a protected nature area, we can not host a dance party. Looking for a party venue for the evening? There are various attractive party venues situated at a 5 to 15-minute drive from us. We will gladly advise you.
