The best experience we could have asked for!

My partner and I got married back in August and had our wedding reception at Ryde Castle. From the moment we booked it to the day of our wedding Kerry and the team were absolutely amazing and made the whole process a lot less stressful! We had a few people pull out, some even the week of the wedding and they allowed us to redirect the money which I have never known a venue to do on such short notice. They were easy to get hold of, always got back with answers to questions very quickly and extremely flexible. What we got for our money was amazing, the food was great and the DJ too. It was the best day ever and we cannot thank Kerry and the team at Ryde Castle for making it such a magical experience. We would highly recommend this as a venue and if we could go back and change anything, we would have had our wedding ceremony here also!
