Perfect Venue and something different!

Old Wardour has a special place in our hear and has a little bit of magic about it. We were so lucky to be able to marry here and were blessed with fantastic weather.

The castle and grounds have so many areas to get stunning photos, our photographer was soonexcited to get creative and had got some phenomenal shots in different areas of the site.

Our guests were blown away with the setting and all said it was an amazing venue and so different to any other wedding they have been too, a one of a kind place.

The team were also fantastic and accommodated allnour requests and were super friendly and helpful.

We would not hesitate in recommending the castle to anyone who is looking for somewhere different to the usual barn, stately home venue, it is so unique and if like us, you just have the ceremony here, it is worth the money for the stunning location to get the best shots and memories of the day
