Perfect backdrop for a wonderful day
The location of Highcliffe Castle for our wedding was never in dispute. It was the perfect backdrop for a wonderful day and truly amazing experience. As our numbers were designed to reflect a small size wedding, we chose the ceremony only package. Had we had a larger gathering, we would have definitely opted for the meal. The sun was shining, the grounds were perfect and the beach just 200m away. From our initial visit to the big day, we felt highly confident that everything would go to plan and the incredible support from the team there made that possible. They even stepped to organise a wedding car ON THE DAY when our original provider let us down 3 hours before the wedding! In summary, perfect organisation, perfect timings, a truly professional experience from planning, to arrival, throughout the wedding and after service Champagne Reception. Thank you Highcliffe!
