"We are so so grateful for all the hard work you put into making our wedding day so wonderful. We felt comfortable with you from the first day that we met and you were such a calming and reassuring presence throughout the planning, particularly on the morning of the wedding. We'll be forever grateful to you for that and if it hadn't been for you, this day might not have been so stress-free!
Thank you for putting up with all our emails (the ones you got anyway :-0) and doing everything you could to make the day perfect for us. Everything looked lovely and was just the way we wanted it. The whole day went so smoothly and you even went above and beyond to organise all the candles for our first dance for us. We couldn't have asked for a better guide to take us through this day!!"Santi and Jamie

"A huge thank you to the castle owners, Sarah and Robbie, and all of the fantastic staff for the most wonderful family wedding weekend. It was perfect. I cannot recommend the castle enough! It is in such an idyllic, quiet spot by the river, amongst rolling hills, and the castle itself is a truly fantastic venue, both inside and out. All needs of young and old (!!) were very well catered for and much care given to every detail. Our rooms (in cottages around the castle grounds but each within easy reach) were large and lovely, with tv, kettle and very comfortable beds. The grounds are so spacious there is plenty of room, and activity for all ages (tennis court, tree house, hot tub, historic castle tours, croquet). We had so much fun! The food provided, in house and by external caterers was excellent. The wedding ceremony in the castles guard room, and blessing in the chapel were simply stunning. The chapel is quite magical, crossing the moat back for a champagne reception on the lawn could not have been more perfect. Many thanks for such exquisite memories! I am not sure photos can do it justice."Jess
