The most incredible day
Venue Service

By Lauren & Rob Hamilton, on 01 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

I cannot recommend the team at Penn Castle enough! From the very first show round right through to the big day itself and after the event, Cat absolutely nailed the balance between being a true event professional with a fantastic sense of humour and immense ability to keep us calm. Planning our big day from abroad added a level of stress that she managed perfectly and she helped us keep this to a minimum by showing us time and time again that she knew exactly what she was doing and that everything was under control. We are planning to revisit the castle and relive our special day in years to come. Thank you so much once again - it really was the best day of our lives.

A true professional in organising our wedding day the way that we wanted it. She is such a lovely person inside and out. Thank you so much for helping us to have the best wedding we could of ever imagined

Our twilight wedding was an absolute dream

"I just want to say a huge thank you to the wonderful Cat and team, for all you have done for our wedding - in both the lead up and the day itself. Our twilight wedding was an absolute dream and it wouldn't have been possible without your amazing venue and assistance. All our guests were complimentary of the beauty and unique wedding set up! We really could not have wished for a better day. With best wishes, Mr and Mrs Srivastava"

Our best decision was to get married at The Penn.
Venue Service

By Tracy and Milan Mach, on 16 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

Without doubt our best decision was to have our wedding at the Pennsylvania Castle. From the time we contacted the Castle enquiring about our wedding, to the day we left, our experience was an absolute joy. Catherine’s suggestions advice and expert management on the day made the wedding for us, everything went so smoothly. All the staff were so helpful and courteous. The Castle is in the perfect location overlooking the well-manicured gardens and spectacular views of the coast and sea. All our guests commented on the en-suite bedrooms being beautiful, comfortable and spacious. The whole Castle was impeccably clean and faultless. The flexibility the property offers allowed everyone to find their own space or alternately was accommodating enough for everyone to gather and celebrate together The surrounding areas are exciting too, walking down to the quaint Cove and exploring the remains of 13th Century Cemetery. It was like a scene from an Enid Blyton novel. On the day of our wedding 2nd June 2018 we were overwhelmed with just how Catherine took control, we didn’t need to worry about anything, she was there sorting out and taking care of every detail, large or small. We really can’t express how grateful we are. We knew our wedding was going to be a lovely day regardless, how could it not be in such a gorgeous location but didn’t quite expect just how perfect when it all came together. We all had a magical day, and memories, which will last our lifetime.

Winter Wedding
Venue Service

I want to do a shout out to Chris, Cat and Team for all their help. We met with Cat a few times before the wedding to go over the plans, and on the day she was brilliant at keeping calm and checking all was okay with me and my husband. Cat also made sure my husband and I were where we were meant to be! Thank you again for all your hard work in making our wedding day truly special. Kimberley and Freddie xx
