Dear sharon, Marie, Richard, Robert, Scott, Steve, Sarah + Robbie, Nigel and everyone at Bickleigh you are all truly amazing thank you for making our wedding so special xxx We will always remember all of you fondly and I hope my friends and family will too x Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
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
I would just like to say a massive thank you to Sarah and the team at Bickleigh Castle for hosting our Winter client event this year. We started off with having drinks in the Great Hall which was spacious yet cosy with the huge fire going. We then went on to the banqueting room for our buffet style lunch which was extremely tasty with plenty to go around all of our 70 guests (some going up for seconds!). John did a fantastic speech about the history of the castle which was both informative and interesting. John then led on to tours of the castle which all the clients thoroughly enjoyed. All of the staff (naming Marie and Steve especially) were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble and it really made my job a lot easier knowing I had such a great team to call upon at any time. Thank you, Sarah, we all thoroughly enjoyed the event and will be sure to be back.
Sincere thanks to everyone involved in this amazing wedding. The castle is stunning and the gardens beautiful. A fairytale come true. Thank you
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.
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.
