Simply the best day of our lives
Allerton Castle is the perfect wedding venue. From the moment we met Jessica our wedding coordinator to the moment we went to sleep on the night the planning was smooth and stress free. We picked Bradshaws for the food which was also exceptional. We had fabulous weather so were able to enjoy the wonderful grounds but Allerton is beautiful inside and out so if it had rained it wouldn’t have mattered. Thank you everyone fo making our day so amazing, we wish we could do it all over again.

truly impressive
Our daughter and son in law got married here in Nov, the day could not have gone any better, everything went so smoothly, which was down to Jessica and our daughter Victoria organizing everything before the day, we used Bradshaw catering of York and I can honestly say it was the best food we have ever had at a wedding, we had so many comments about the food, the grounds are beautiful and you won't find anywhere with a more impressive interior, you need to go and have a look to truely appreciate it.

I highly recommend!
We got married this time last year. I cannot thank Jess and Libby enough. They were fantastic from the moment we booked our wedding to the last minute of us leaving our wedding. They dealt with all suppliers and put both me and my partner at ease and took away all stress on the day. The castle is beautiful and romantic setting for any wedding. I highly recommend. Thank you again
