Thornbury Castle was the absolute perfect wedding venue for us. I am an American woman who married a British guy, and of course getting married in a castle was like a dream.Sent on 07/08/2011
The venue is absolutely breathtaking and has incredible opportunities for wedding photos. Additionally the staff were absolutely amazing.
