    As a guest, I really prefer a ceremony and reception in one location. It is just so much easier.

    But, if I were you, I would make the decision based on the ceremony itself. Who will officiate at the castle? How do you feel about his or her ability? Do you much prefer the person at the cathedral?

    At the end of the day, a little inconvenience isn’t a big deal for a more meaningful ceremony.

    If you can put a shuttle on for everyone then I’d go with the church if you love it.

    If you have your heart set on the church, I would definitely look into a shuttle of some sort.  I think that’s right on the edge of being too far to ask guests to drive.  I personally think it’s an amazing idea to get married at a castle, so I say ceremony and reception at the castle.

    I agree with the others.  If the hotel is right by the castle it would really make most sense if you could arrange a shuttle to the church and back.  Make it a little pre-wedding cocktail bus or something.

    Try to keep everything as close together as possible, guests really appreciate that type of convenience.  Another plus is you won’t lose time to a possibly lengthy commute, so you can enjoy the day more and have more time with your guests.
