Wedding of our dreams
From the moment we first booked our wedding date (3+ years in advance), to checking out after the big day, everything was perfect. We had 35 day guests, and were married in a civil ceremony in the Presence Room (complete with owl ring bearer), then chose to have afternoon tea in the Peacock Room as our wedding breakfast. In the evening we had an additional 10 guests, and joined a Medieval Banquet (with every single guest getting dressed up!), before ending the night with a beautiful firework display. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the team, and Debby was incredible st making sure everything was organised in advance of the big day. Almost all of our guests chose to stay at the castle, and when we arrived, my now husband and I were so proud to show them ‘our castle’. Everyone loved it, and had a wonderful time. One of the most incredible things about the castle is the team that work there. On each visit we’ve never failed to be impressed at how considerate and helpful they are, Be it arranging breakfast at 2am for the bride who sorted everyone else out except herself (🙈), to regaling our guests with stories of ghosts and spooky paintings. Everyone went above and beyond, which we were incredibly greatful for. Thank you all so much! Can’t wait to come back in a few weeks!! You don’t get rid of us that easily 😜
