“Had a fantastic time everyone was so lovely and helpful, big thank you to everyone at Bickleigh Castle .”xx
From the start of coming to view the Castle, your kindness and hospitality has been amazing. Sharon did a fab job at helping us organise the most perfect day imaginable, and very prompt with replying to emails and speaking with us about anything we needed; this made the whole process run so much smoother, cut down on the stress, and I think that it really showed on the day just how well everything came together. On the day itself, a lot of guests commented that they thought they were at a Celebrity Wedding!! It was a lovely touch for Sarah to come and see me and give me the last roses out of her garden, and the love and kindness from Sharon and Polly was really touching; it was obvious how much they wanted us to be happy and give us the most perfect day. We cannot say Thank You enough for giving us a Wedding Day that we didn’t even know was possible. We knew our Wedding Day would be special, but we didn’t know it was this possible to be this happy, and now, we will hold on to these memories forever. We just wish we could relive the day again and again and again. We are so proud to have had our Wedding at your venue and would recommend it to anyone for future weddings. It was 1000 x better than we could have ever imagined.
It was even better than we imagined and our family and friends had a magnificent time. The venue and setting is really to die for, so picturesque and perfect for a wedding. We do recommend to your future customers in taking the package including the wedding coordinator. Especially if you don’t live in Devon.
Thank you so much for an absolutely incredible weekend, we couldn’t have asked for more. We were expecting a magical weekend, but it surpassed all our expectations.
The fireworks, in particular, were amazing. Scott was an excellent chef and everyone commentated on how delicious it all was.’
Lots of love
