Helen and Andy were the first couple to marry at Castle Goring earlier this year. They had an intimate wedding with close friends and family and took full advantage of the spaces within the Castle throughout their day; It even snowed which was truly magical!
What the couple had to say:
Having seen this beautiful venue completely come to life throughout its renovation; it was truly amazing to be the first to get married there! We had countless compliments from our guests about how ideal the Castle was for our big day. It really did feel like true luxury having the whole place to ourselves. The flexibility of the space was brilliant - we were able to pick which parts of our day happened where. The castle has some real wow features. We love the pictures we got on the wonderful staircase. Lady C was attentive from start to finish, and an all-round lovely host. Sophie was the perfect wedding planner and made the day effortless. A huge thank you to you both, and all who worked hard on getting the renovations done in time! I'd highly recommend this beautiful Castle to anyone considering a venue for their special day. It certainly exceeded our expectations and helped make our day spectacular. Many thanks, Mr & Mrs Lord
