We wish we could do it all over again
Allerton Castle is an exceptional wedding venue. When planning our wedding it was the only venue we even considered as the staircase is spectacular. We planned our wedding for August and thought it would be a nice summers day but it rained all day! Even though this was the case we would not have changed one thing about this. Our guests were amazed at the stunning features of the castle. They also made lots of comments as to how lovely the food was. We decided to book Bradshaws and we were not let down! We cannot thank Jessica and Libby enough for their kindness and help. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Planning a wedding can be stressful enough but both Libby and Jessica did everything they could to help. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning to get married. There is not one thing we would change about the day. It ran so smoothly from start to finish and was completely beyond what we ever imagined. We wish we could do it all over again. Love Mr and Mrs Cowin
