A Geordie fairytale brought to life
Venue Service

By Vicki Steele, on 28 May 2018Date of Wedding - 29 May 2016

Having our wedding at the Castle saw our dreams quite literally come true. From a small idea to our big day, the Castle staff were there with us every step of the way. The Great Hall was filled with candles and we seated 60 people comfortably. He guests walked up to the grand entrance making it really something special for our guests. The service ran so smoothly and the acoustics of the Great Hall really complemented the Gospel Choir beautifully. And finally a drinks reception on the roof, with those stunning views of the City, it left our guests speechless. But what really made it for us, was the exquisite attention to detail and extra little flourishes and assistance the Castle did for us that really just helped take the stress of planning a wedding away. They were so accommodating - nothing was too much for them. Many Brides (and Grooms of course) will know the apprehension of putting your trust into others to make your special day work - not with these guys! I felt so confident and comfortable and knew they would pull out all the stops to make our day seamless. And of course they did. From our guests arriving to the Great Hall to the stunning drinks reception on the roof - it simply was, well... perfect.
