Belhurst Castle is a historic wedding venue on the shores of Seneca Lake in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. The castle serves couples from the Geneva, Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse regions as well as couples that live elsewhere in the U.S. or internationally. Founded in 1885, the century-old castle is a combination of three hotels, two restaurants, a winery, and a spa and salon for all of your wedding needs. As the owners of Belhurst Castle don't believe that guests should have to pay to use the space, the castle doesn't have a venue or site fee. This historic building has witnessed many milestone moments, and your wedding could be the next one.
Facilities and Capacity
The venue offers two locations for wedding events. The Castle Ballroom boasts cathedral ceilings, elegant chandeliers, and cascading views of Lake Seneca.

The other space, the Meritage Ballroom is an elegant room which features high ceilings, flowing drapery, and floor-to-ceiling windows which look out over beautiful views of the castle’s turret. Accommodating up to 160 guests, this room also includes its own private patio and lawn for outdoor events. Belhurst offers three distinct hotel accommodations and couples will have the option to books rooms in either the Chambers in the Castle, the Vinifera Inn, or the White Springs Manor.
The experienced staff at Belhurst Castle can tailor wedding events to each couples’ individual styles.

Belhurst is gorgeous and quite affordable. Planning a wedding during COVID was tough, but Carmen rolled with the punches, and kept us updated every step of the way. Even with a reduced guest list we were able to have a beautiful wedding and reception that was just perfect.Sent on 10/30/2020
