Castle Goring Wedding
Venue Service

By Mark Chambers, on 23 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017

We had a great day at the castle. The food was excellent the service was great, plenty of character and charm about the place and lady colin campbell’s presence made it even more special. It was just about ok for us numbers wise - having around 100 guests, any more and a marquee probably more suitable, which is possible. The location is ok though very near the a27 - you do hear some traffic noise from the venue - but this did not matter for us as most of the day was spent inside. It is worth having some thought how you use the various rooms during the day for instance it did rain for a period so guests were all in a relatively small room for a period until they gradually spread out. There are extra lounge rooms which are worth using (if accessible at the time) as i understand the upstairs area was not available while the meal was being prepared, so quite a bit of socialising was done in the hall way/stairway area. In terms of the dance area - a great room but again for 100 or so guests a bit of a squash so some of the items like photo montage, and singing was not visible to all. The food and drink was good although note unlike some venues you cannot bring your own alcohol which will face a premium cost wise as it will need to be ordered through the suppliers. I hope these comments are useful; my overall feeling was really a very positive one - we got to have our wedding in an incredible castle, with very attentive service- it was a special day we will never forget. :)

The day couldn't have been any more perfect. Everybody loved the castle and the food and service was superb. Some of our guests even managed to get a cheeky selfie with Lady C! Highly recommend this as a wedding venue - it looks spectacular, great team and you have exclusive use to shape the day specifically how you want it. Well played Castle Goring.

First Wedding at Castle Goring
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Lord, on 06 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Feb 2017

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
