Kirsty & Gary were married at Castle Goring and Kirsty arrived early the morning of the wedding so she and her bridal party could get ready in our beautiful bridal suite. Kirsty made her entrance down the aisle from the door on the first floor onto our balcony and down the grand stairs. This was our first outdoor ceremony and it was beautiful. Following the ceremony guests moved through the building to have the customary confetti shot at the main entrance followed by drinks and canapes back on the South lawns. During the drinks reception there was a beautiful Chinese Tea Ceremony which involved the happy couple serving Tea to both sets of parents, this was done under one of our large trees.
What the couple had to say:
We had our outdoor wedding at Castle Goring in July 2017, it was the best day of our lives. The venue was beautiful, with the most welcoming host. There was wheelchair access, indoor and outdoor space. We felt relaxed and at home. We will recommend Castle Goring to anyone.
