Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • If you’re looking for a wedding that’s quirky, fun and truly unique, then say “I do” outside the majestic 44-room Fonthill Castle or inside the Mercer Museum, which bursts with eclectic character. Ceremony and reception options include their beautiful art gallery, a garden patio tent, the great hall with its stunning lighting display or any number of outside areas.
  • Self-guided tours of the entire castle, art gallery and and 60+ acres of grounds allow guests to have an intimate experience with one of the region’s most unusual historic sites, with architectural styles that range from Byzantium to gothic and remarkable artifacts from renaissance man Henry Chapman Mercer’s career as an archaeologist and antiquarian.
  • This venue is jam-packed with opportunities to capture amazing wedding photos, whether you want fairy-tale shots of your first look in the enchanted woods, family pictures with the soaring castle in the background, or fun photos of your bridal party amid Chapman’s unique discoveries.
