The 'I dos'
Imagine saying your vows with the sun streaming through stained-glass windows, as a string quartet plays from the Minstrel’s Gallery. The magnificent Great Hall, which can host ceremonies with 165 loved ones also offers a warmly romantic setting in the winter with a glowing fire and candlelight reflecting off the original Minton Hollins tiled floor.
The Drawing Room can also accommodate 165 and is the largest of the Castle’s function rooms. As you enter, your eye is caught by three imposing windows draped with luxurious red velvet curtains, chandeliers and tapestries.
Built in 1848 and set inside the fortified walls of the Castle, the Chapel is the perfect place for a religious blessing or renewal of vows (not available for civil ceremonies) and the local minister will be happy to officiate. There’s space here for 100 loved ones.
For more intimate “I dos,” The Hexagonal Room (80 guests), The Wine Cellar (40 guests), and The Library (30 guests) are also available.
For large capacities The Drawing Room (165 guests) and Great Hall (120 guests) are available once more for your reception. For smaller guest lists, The Hexagonal Room can host 80 and among its many striking features is the Tollmache family grace, engraved into the vaulted stone ceiling: “At dinner and supper, morning and night, give thanks unto God for his gifts.”
For the same numbers, The Wine Cellar allows you to absorb the Castle’s history with its one-of-a-kind experience. The captivating grey- stone walls evoke times long past, enveloping you and your loved ones in an atmosphere of wistful romance.
Finally, The Library is the most intimate of the spaces and can seat 30. The book-lined walls are a key feature adding to its authenticity and ambience.
The venue benefits from an onsite lodge, which is ideal for a night in with nearest and dearest before the big day. Also offered are menu tastings allowing you to try out some mouth-watering dishes, and all packages include use of the bridal suite for the wedding night
