Thank you to all the team at MC for making sure we had a fabulous wedding day. Melissa really went that extra mile and scooted to the local shops to source batteries for his toy! We had the best day, thank you to all involved. Can't wait to visit again!

Had my wedding here in March 2016. Loved the venue and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Couldn't recommend it higher. Stayed the night at the castle afterwards and was more than happy with our room, 10/10.

I would like to thank Melville Castle for the most amazing wedding ever. My husband and I got married in Melville Castle last week, one of the biggest days of our life's. From the arrival, the staff helping us from the car to our room with luggage etc. The staff were amazing and they could not have done anymore for us and our family. They made the children feel so special an helped in any way they could. The wedding Co-Ordinator Melissa Davidson was absolutely amazing an helped in anyway and everyway she possibly could. Melissa made that unforgettable day for us both. The meal at our wedding was first class as were the table service we received. Infact guests are still talking about the food they had for the meal. If there is couples out there looking for a special venue for there special day, please look at this venue and you will Not be disappointment .

What a fantastic day we had. I would like to say a huge thank you to Melissa and Susie for their help and support in preparation for my wedding and ensuring that I had the most smooth running and perfect wedding day at the Castle. I would also like to thank Abby and the rest of the staff team for their prompt, efficient and courteous service. The food was fantastic, so much so, that many guests commemented it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. We could not have asked for a better day and a great time was had by all. Thanks again.

Brilliant Wedding Day
Venue Service

By James, on 23 Oct 2015

Myself and Lou got married at this venue on 13/9/15 and the build up to the day was managed by Melissa and she was always there on hand to discuss details. The night beforehand bridal party stayed over and had a meal in restaurant which was amazing. The day of the wedding went great due to Melissa and Suzy plus the other staff members. We also used photographer supplied by venue and florists. Cannot repeat how great our day was and if you are looking for a venue this is the place to have your wedding.
