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!
The most stunning venue, so personal, charming and beautiful. I have never been anywhere like Bickleigh Castle, completely unique. Thank you! x
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!
People have not stopped commenting on how delicious the food was and how amazing the fireworks were, nothing could have prepared us for how magical and emotional the day was for us both. Bickleigh is a very special place with an amazing charm of its own. Everyone of our guests without fail commented on how wonderful a venue it was, like no other wedding venue they had been to before.
A perfect wedding- thank you so much for inviting me to share it with you. Your lovely families & friends are so special & you are such an amazing well-matched couple! Have a perfect future as husband & wife

Sincere thanks to everyone involved in this amazing wedding. The castle is stunning and the gardens beautiful. A fairytale come true. Thank you
The Great Hall made it a most romantic Ceremony and the blessing afterwards in the little Chapel was very special. I could write so much about the beautiful flowers, excellent food and good wine. It was a truly magical day from beginning to end not only for the Bride and Groom but for their family and friends. So glad we all stayed in the Castle’s courtyard cottages.
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.
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!
