The Skylands Manor offers romance and glamour for weddings that are reminiscent of those found in fairy tales. This once in a lifetime moment should be spent where you have always dreamed of having it…at a castle just for you, your fiancé and your guests! Imagine your ceremony in your own private chapel by the lake or along a tree-lined orchard. Relax and enjoy these precious moments that you have dreamed of for so long.

The Skylands Manor has become one of New Jersey’s premier destination wedding sites. Explore 100 acres of formal botanical gardens within the 1,000 acres of natural woodlands that make up the Skylands in Ringwood, NJ where rolling lawns, verandas and stone terraces provide the perfect ambiance for any type of ceremony, cocktail reception or gala affair. Enjoy the magnificent view of Shepherd Lake from the chapel. Taste our incomparable culinary delights as you are swept away by the elegance of this grand fifty-four room, granite Tudor Revival mansion.

You and your guests can stay in one of our 24 beautifully appointed glamorous suites or overnight rooms. Built as a showplace in the popular style of eclecticism, the vast interiors display the late Gothic to early Renaissance architectural styles. Formal gardens can accommodate up to 600 guests, the Ballroom up to 220 and the exclusive Castle up to 300 guests.
