The day ran SEAMLESSLY!! Sharon and Sarah showed us the true meaning of a fairy tale wedding, amazing food!! The relationship we made with Sarah was genuine , she interacted with the family and made a grand job which made me have the Best Day of my Life!
Everything about that weekend was much more than we had anticipated, the service & organisation was excellent throughout. The food and presentation during the whole weekend far surpassed our expectations, the ambience. The chapel on Sunday morning was the crowning glory with over 40 attending which surprised us all. It was truly wonderful and magical. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Bickleigh Castle!
We had an amazing wedding weekend at this beautiful castle, full of character and charm, in the middle of wonderful Devon countryside, flowing river.throughout the weekend the staff worked around the clock to make sure every detail was perfect, the rooms have amazing character ,the castle is full of splender and history, the food and drink for breakfast to evening was fantastic, we had fireworks, ice cream kart, and disco, all were amazing words escape me but I’m amazed by how well the wedding flowed perfectly without any hiccups, the guests were over the moon to be invited to such a wonderful place the fireworks were second to non and finished the weekend perfectly .we highly recommend this beautiful place, fantastic staff and everything in between.
The team at Bickleigh Castle made every effort to to meet our (quite particular) needs, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about our weekend. Our party (of stags!) had a great time, and we thoroughly enjoyed living like lords for the weekend. Thank you to Sarah and everyone behind the scenes; we couldn’t have been happier with the environment, freedom, and help provided by the friendly folk at Bickleigh Castle.
Dear Sarah and team, We are still floating after the amazing wedding we had with you on the 14th October! We really wanted the opportunity to let you know how much we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and how much our guests were in awe of our celebrations at Bickleigh! From the onset we could have not asked for more support or help; The wedding breakfast room was set up so beautifully, the organza that we gave was hung in such a stylish yet understated way, and it looked amazing. It was a pleasure to have been able to have celebrated in such glorious surroundings overall, Bickleigh has such a charm which deserves all the praise it gets. We were so completely relaxed and it did feel a little like home from home – thanks to the care and attention we had from you all. We really do have to stress how fabulous your staff are – we cannot remember names very well, but in particular Richard and a young lady who I keep calling Marie – I hope this is correct – she was the lady who helped me up the stairs with my dress going in to the great hall, and she served our table and looked after Angus and I very beautifully during the wedding breakfast. They literally kept the wedding running on the very practical side, Richard served our guests and ourselves with such respect and helpfulness, he must have been completely exhausted! David Read was brilliant – he did call me Karen though at the blessing, which raised a giggle! Such a delightful man, I particularly found him delightful, helpful and funny and was very pleased he was part of our day. Scoff catering is a blessing, the food was delicious, served hot and presented beautifully! I have sent an email to him separately as I have his addy. The jazz band was completely amazing! It really made the afternoon enjoyable, and with the weather being nice enough they could head outside, it made it go so quickly whilst photographs were happening! I also need to thank you and Robbie for the ride in your amazing car! How fantastic that the number plate is my Daddy’s initials! Obviously meant to be! Thank you again Sarah, we would very much appreciate that you pass on our thanks to your team. They are all fantastic and you must be so very proud to have them work with you. With much love and best regards, Clare and Angus Beer
To Sarah and the Team….We had the most amazing wedding. The flow around the Castle and Grounds was perfect. The Great Hall looked stunning. The Chapel was awe inspiring and the Humanist ceremony magical. Champagne and canapés on the lawn followed by live music from the Swing Kings in the courtyard got the party started. The wedding breakfast room looked fabulous and everything went smoothly. The welcome drink in the Great Hall for evening guests was a brilliant idea. The evening events were in the |Orangery with 10 piece band rocking. Casino entertainment upstairs & Dan Frazier magician meant there was something for everyone. The fireworks were the Grand Finale and all the guests were spellbound!!!!! It couldn’t have been more PERFECT and the wedding of the year. Romantic, historic and memorable. Simply just PERFECT.

What a wonderful wedding Natasha and Andy had at Bickleigh Castle in July this summer. We shall never forget the enchanting setting, beautiful weather and the perfect service that was provided by you and your staff. Nothing was too much trouble, so that each guest felt relaxed and really enjoyed the whole day.
We just wanted to send you a note to thank you again for everything throughout the planning on our wedding day. It was truly was the best day of our lives and we are still getting comments from family and friends about how amazing it was. We have gorgeous photographs and a fantastic film, which we regularly watch, wishing we could do it all over again!
