Amazing venue

The staff at the castle and the caterers did a fantastic job, they really went above and beyond. The venue itself is dreamy, all of the guests were stunned at how gorgeous it is, and it definitely has the wow factor when you enter. Fantastic venue over all, would recommend to anyone

Amazing and breathtaking Venue

This venue was everything and more what we both dreamed of.

From beginning to end, our coordinator was available to answer any questions and provided plenty of helpful suggestions to help the day run smoothly.

Did not disappoint, we stayed overnight in the bridal suite and has our breakfast in the music room.

What a venue, the character and decor can not be replicated, it's breathtaking!

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鈥檚, 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鈥檛 leave a review without commenting on the wonderful food from Bradshaw鈥檚, 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

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!

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

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
