We offer the option of having your wedding ceremony in the beautifully revitalized English park from the 18th century, in the privacy of the castle atrium or directly inside the castle – whether in the restored Chapel of St. Anne or in the noble Rose Salon.

Ceremony in the Chapel of st. Anne
Ceremony in the Chapel of st. Anne
Choosing the chapel of St. Anne as the place for your wedding ceremony means choosing the ‘heart’ of Chateau Heralec. The chapel was the source of most of the interior decor inspirations used. Both a civil as well as a church ceremony is possible in the chapel, as it has been consecrated. Dominated by the breathtaking restored fresco from the 18th century, the chapel was destined to be a very dignified place for saying ‘yes’ to your loved one. Let us not forget to mention the beautiful stained glass windows, emanating an almost holy light into the chapel, with motives of angels and the saints sparkling on the floor. The spirituality of the place is only highlighted by the simple yet beautiful handmade steel cross, forged by artist David Szalay.
Ceremony in the Castle Park
Ceremony in the Castle Park
Many of the engaged couples that have visited us were taken away by the breathtaking beauty of our castle park. When the weather permits, opting to go for the natural essence of green pastures and beautiful old majestic trees as the background for your wedding is truly magical. To say your vows under the canopies of 300-year-old trees is quite an experience. We have had several guest testimonies saying it was the most beautiful wedding day they’ve seen.
If you choose to rent the entire capacity of the castle for your wedding day, you can also hold the wedding ceremony directly in our castle courtyard. Its intimate atmosphere and beauty are impeccable. A clean grassy square plane, stone pavement, majestic castle stone walls – like a scene out of a romantic movie. The pathway leading into the beautiful castle park at the back end of the courtyard is the perfect one for newlyweds to take their first steps into married life on.
Wedding Suites at Chateau Heralec
For the most important night of their lives, the wedding couple can choose our King’s Suite Lords Trcka from Lipa or our Presidential Suit Lords from Solms. Although very different from one another, both of these suites offer unbelievable spaciousness and the nobility of times gone by. You will find restored frescos, original wooden ceiling decor as well a beautiful historical stove.
The King´s Suite Lords Trcka from Lipa with an area of 139 m² is the largest castle suite. It is named after one of the most powerful Czech clans – the Trckas from Lipa. Once upon a time governors of the Vysocina regions, they were rumored to be so wealthy that even the kings borrowed money from them. So enter this magical fairytale with its beautiful mosaic floors, original stove and wooden ceiling decor. The room can be connected with the neighboring Grande Double Room De Luxe Lords from Roupov. Once connected, the two rooms add up to a staggering 214 m²!
The Presidential Suite Lords from Solms with an area of 131 m² is also a unique space with the captivating and highly detailed decor. An almost levitating circular light hangs below the ceiling, discretely shining light upon the ‘angelic’ fresco. The fresco was installed in the room using a special tapestry technique. The room also features original doors made from linden tree wood, a beautiful bedroom facing the English park and an absolutely unique bathroom located in the southern turret. The discovery of a medieval bath in the flooring inspired us to use it in a completely new, modern way so that even the most demanding guest can enjoy a combination of the old and new.
Other than the above-mentioned “wedding” suites, we have 17 luxurious rooms available for your guests – 7 exclusive and spacious suites and 10 double rooms with beautiful views of our park. Thanks to the creative approach of the owner, each room tells it’s own story. All the rooms are named after a painting from the local gallery in Vysocina, whose replicas you can find cleverly installed in the rooms.
Various locations in the castle are suitable for catering services at your wedding.
Foremostly, it is the beautiful and noble Hall of Ancestors where you can enjoy a celebratory lunch or dinner with a maximum capacity of 60 people comfortably seated. However, we always advise a smaller number of guests to maintain an intimate atmosphere. Classic seating arrangements are available as well as banquet style seating. Our large circular tables look especially beautiful under the old historical arches.
In the northern wing of the castle, you can find our castle restaurant, Honoria. This option is available for wedding catering only if the entire castle is rented for the purposes of the wedding. Two spacious dining halls are located in the restaurant, as well as our beautiful bar & coffee area Agasia and the very intimate Salon in the Turret. Breakfast and dinner are classically served in this area. During the summer months, it is possible to dine directly in the castle courtyard which has a stunning view of our English park.
