Wedding Ceremony and Afternoon Stay
After the arrival you can immediately start the ceremony or (recommended) first a reception with a coffee or tea buffet. Of course, the bride can also decide to have the entire bride’s toilet at Kasteel Groot Buggenum. Then descend the majestic staircase from the fantastic library, where the Groom, accompanied by your day guests, will receive his Bride with loud applause. A castle-like entrance.
The duration of a wedding ceremony is approximately 30 to 45 minutes. After the wedding you can surprise the guests with a special wedding cake or a High Tea. In good weather it is also possible to have this take place in the enclosed courtyard. Then on the road to make beautiful pictures in and around the castle and to conclude a buffet, BBQ, walking dinner or dinner.
After the ceremony, the bridal couple, led by the BABS, can go to the Tower Room. Here the bride and groom can ring the castle bells of Kasteel Groot Buggenum and let the world hear that they have given each other the “Yes” word!
During the bell, we can provide your guests with a glass of sparkling champagne or cava. As soon as the bride and groom come down again and finally take the champagne glasses in hand, the master of ceremonies or our hostess calls for a joint toast to the happy couple.
You can choose the wedding cake yourself and check with a confectioner of your choice and have it delivered. If you use one of our caterers (see Catering), the wedding cake can also be ordered through them. The price is of course dependent on your choice.
Of course it is possible for the bridal couples who close their wedding at Castle Groot Buggenum, to use the castle and / or the gardens as a backdrop for the photos. The time that your guests take a look at the castle after the wedding cake or if they take a guided tour, is often a good time for the photos. It is also possible to take the photos in advance.
When the bride and groom make photos, we can offer a guided tour of the castle to the lovers. Under the guidance of one or more expert guides, your guests are guided around in small groups. During a tour of the whole castle, your guests get a fascinating story about the history of the Castle and in particular its last resident Prof. dr. Dr. Helmut Hentrich. The costs per guide are € 25, -, maximum 15 persons per guide.
Dinner, Walking Dinner, BBQ or Buffet
Between 17.30 and 19.30 our caterers can pamper your guests with delicious dishes in the form of dinner at the table, or a walking dinner, perhaps a generous BBQ or an extensive buffet. The youngest guests are delighted to help with the preparations of the dishes (with washed hands!). Everyone comes to rest for a moment to be pampered by food and drink and thus provide the body with new energy to strengthen for a lively end of the day.
