    The most amazing venue and day

    Allerton Castle is the most amazing wedding venue, we honestly could not recommend it more! Right from our first meeting our wedding co-ordinator Libby, and the castle itself, set the bench mark for all the other venues we viewed, and none could compete.

    The planning process was smooth and stress free, and Libby was brilliant advising what would work well to achieve our perfect day.

    The big day itself was fabulous, whatever the weather Allerton Castle looks amazing, and it provided a stunning back drop to an unforgettable day.

    The staff at the castle, and at Bradshaw’s, were so professional and nothing was too much trouble, all our guests commented on just how lovely everyone was and how well we were looked after.

    Finally, we couldn’t leave a review without commenting on the wonderful food from Bradshaw’s, it really was top notch.

    Nothing was too much trouble

    Allerton Castle is an exceptional wedding venue. When planning our wedding it was the only venue we even considered as the staircase is spectacular. We planned our wedding for August and thought it would be a nice summers day but it rained all day! Even though this was the case we would not have changed one thing about this. Our guests were amazed at the stunning features of the castle. They also made lots of comments as to how lovely the food was. We decided to book Bradshaws and we were not let down!

    We cannot thank Jessica and Libby enough for their kindness and help. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Planning a wedding can be stressful enough but both Libby and Jessica did everything they could to help.

    We would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning to get married. There is not one thing we would change about the day. It ran so smoothly from start to finish and was completely beyond what we ever imagined. We wish we could do it all over again.

    A wonderful start to a marriage

    We got married here in June 2019. The staff and venue were incredible, the perfect location for our wedding. To top things off, staying over on our wedding night in the palace suite was just beautiful, waking up with that view is a wonderful start a marriage

    A total Wow Factor!

    Hi Jessica We all had an amazing time thanks, thanks to you, Libby and Darrell who ensured everything ran perfectly. Everyone commented on the beautiful fairytale venue, many saying it was the best wedding they'd been to. A total wow factor. We have shared lots of photos on social media to share the wonderful day and the beauty of the Castle. Special thanks to yourself and Libby though who managed the many facets of the planning and the actual day beautifully and a particular 'glitch' without fuss, which we really appreciated. Once again, thank you so much for all your support; have a lovely Christmas break and a wonderful 2019." - Helen, Mother of the Bride

    Wow where do I start...

    I got married at Allerton Castle in November last year and wow, where do I start? As soon as we came to view the castle as a potential wedding venue we knew straight away it was the one. Even the moment we walked into the entrance, it took our breathe away. From booking the venue, to the day of the wedding, pretty much everything was seamless with our organisers Jessica and Lizzy. They catered to all of our needs including my Grandad who had a lot of disability issues. I felt at ease knowing they had everything under control. Every part of the castle is picture worthy, including the gardens outside and of course the amazing staircase. Walking down those with my Dad was a truly emotional experience. If only we could do it all over again!!! We love Allerton Castle with all our heart. Lauren & Ben xxx

    It was my very own fairytale....

    Hello Jessica and Hannah First of all thank you so much for absolutely everything you both did to ensure that our wedding day went has we hoped it would. Darren and I had the best day ever and speaking with our guests so did they. For me the stress was removed by yourselves and Daryl and his team at Bradshaws, that was so important. Jessica, nobody noticed you straighten my dress at the top of the stairs until they watched a video, that made me chuckle. Stealth like!! Guests were in awe of the venue and talk about the beautiful surroundings, I think for Darren and I despite the grandeur of a castle, it felt personal and intimate. It is unique and when I look at other weddings in hotels they are pretty but you know that the rooms are used for business and other such events. It was my very own fairytale. Nothing was ever too much trouble, you both ensured everything run to time, even though the registrar was late!

    Absolutely Fabulous

    May I say on behalf of my husband, Lucy and Michael it was absolutely fabulous. The whole process from start to finish was amazing, so professional and we did not have any worries from the day of booking Allerton, through the wedding day itself until the moment we left.
    I cannot think of anything that would have improved it. We have had so may guests say what a wonderful day they had which made it even better for us.
    Please thank all your staff for their hard work in making it a day we will never forget and will certainly sing your praises for a long time to come

    Guests amazed by the venue...fantastic day.

    So we finally got there...The shock of what we'd done had hit at this point. Clearly will send a thank you card but Laura and I just wanted to say thank you before we went away for a fantastic day. Most people said they'd never experienced a wedding like it (for good reasons!) and were amazed by the venue. Kudos to your staff as well, all the guests commented on how professional they were and how well they handled themselves.
    Our thanks again for all your efforts both in planning and on the day.
