"The castle itself is beautiful; Romantic, decorated to an amazing standard, with wonderful grounds"

We got married at Rowton Castle and it was amazing in every single way!  The staff were fantastic from the moment we first set foot in the place over a year ago.  The castle itself is beautiful; Romantic, decorated to an amazing standard (one of our ushers who travels a lot with his job said it was the nicest room he had ever stayed in) and has wonderful grounds for pictures.  The staff were probably my favorite people on the planet for the 24hours that we had the place!  

John the manager for the day kept me exactly where I needed to be all day, he even sorted out the order my bridesmaids and pageboys would walk down the aisle!  He took care of literally everything, even the last minute bits that I had forgotten about till I got there!

Debbie was lovely, incredibly helpful and funny, and seemed to be there every time I thought of a daft question, Danni on the reception desk was an absolute darling and was so lovely to all our guests and Lewis was a complete star!  From helping to lug crates full of table decorations in through the delivery entrance the night before, to ringing the florists husband on the morning to get her to bring extra flowers that I suddenly realised I needed and bringing up drinks and food to us whenever we needed it on the morning, nothing was too much!

Finally, Caroline the wedding co-ordinator at the venue was superb for putting my mind at rest whenever I had daft questions to ask (and there were a few!).

The ceremony was beautiful and the room looked incredible, the turnaround for the meal was PERFECT, I had spent loads of time planning exactly how I wanted my tables decorated and a big chunk of our budget went on asthetics, I nipped in to see how things were looking after the pictures, expecting to have to move stuff, and I swear I nearly fainted – it was all perfect and looked stunning!

The food was gorgeous, the service was fantastic, even the bar staff in the evening were absolute diamonds!  Breakfast the next day was lovely as well and a great opportunity to chat again to all our guests before they left.

I honestly cannot recommend Rowton Castle highly enough, after reading the reviews online was already feeling confident but it completely blew us and our guests away.

Wendy (resident florist) did a wonderful job of our flowers, Linda (makeup) made me look lovely and told me I looked like Holly Willoughby which is always a bonus!

Mel (Hairdresser) was also wonderful and so many people told me how amazing my hair looked on the day.

Will Tudor (DJ) is essential for anyone booking a wedding here, he seriously seemed to have access to any song my guests requested, no matter how obscure and was an all round excellent bloke!

I am so so glad that we booked Rowton Castle as our wedding venue, can't imagine having had our wedding elsewhere.
