    On behalf of myself and my new husband (The Haldanes) we would like to say a massive thank you to Melissa and all the staff at Melville castle. You made our wedding day so special and magical! Our expectations were met and exceeded by all the staff. They went above and beyond to make our day one to remember. All our guests complimented the venue and the food. This is a day we will never forget. Thank you

    July Wedding

    I got married here on the 29th July and on behalf of myself and my new husband we would like to say a massive thank you to Melissa and all the staff at Melville castle. The venue on the day was stunning! You made our wedding day one to remember. Our expectations were met and exceeded by all the staff. All our guests complimented the venue and the food. A few tweaks were needed here and there but none that ruined the day. Also a massive thank you for helping out with Kevin & his friends to do his crazy video lol thanks again xxx

    Wedding

    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!
