By Sarah Watson, on 31 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2019

I just wanted to say thank you to you and all of the staff at Whitstable Castle for giving us such a lovely wedding. It went really well, the Castle looked amazing, and the food was excellent. Thanks so much to the staff and manager for working so hard to make the day go smoothly. Every member of staff were so friendly and added to much to the occasion. Thank you to you for making the organisation so simple and stress free! Sorry this is a little late in coming! I will provide feedback online somewhere if that helps, to say how amazing the Castle was from start to finish. Thanks so much for making it happen! Sarah and Phil

Our perfect wedding day
Venue Service

By Kelly Shurman, on 31 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 21 Jun 2019

We got married here in June 2019, it was such a perfect, lovely day. We had our ceremony within the castle, wedding breakfast in the rose garden followed by evening reception with Kentish BBQ in The Orangery and the gardens. Tiffany our wedding organiser was brilliant all the way through the viewing, planning stage and was amazing on the day. The staff at the castle were all amazing and we could not have wanted more on our day. It is a fantastic venue and would highly recommend it to anyone. Attention to detail was out of world. The gardens allowed our photographers to get brilliant photos that we will treasure always.

Excellent venue
Venue Service

By Veronica and Michael Reed, on 31 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

Thank you for everything, all your hard work and for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. Our wedding day was sort of a light at the end of a very dark tunnel for us and you all made it so special. The venue was excellent, the food was excellent and the ceremony was excellent but none of that would have been possible without you!

Thank you

We are so grateful to you for all of your help in making our wedding day so special and beautiful. When we first met you we were so nervous and scared because everything was so difficult and the fact that we are from Canada didn't make things easier but with your kindness, patience and guidance, everything fell into place perfectly. From the bottom of our hearts, we sincerely thank you!! We are truly blessed to have met a wonderful person like you.

Perfect wedding day
Venue Service

By Gemma and Keiron Field, on 31 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2016

Thank you for all you help in giving us the perfect wedding day. It was all we had wished for and more. Thank you Tiffany for all your patience and time in planning and the build up. You are exactly what a nervous bride needs to help plan and see it all come together with the brilliant help of Mel and her eye for detail. Thank you for adapting the menu and for great food, everyone enjoyed. Thank you for the girls working on the day who were always on hand and made sure the bride had everything she needed right up till the last moment of the night. You are all ace!

A huge thank you
Venue Service

By Ailsa and Adam Mace, on 31 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 14 Nov 2015

A huge thank you, nothing was too much trouble for you. Although not the best of weather we had a great wedding in and out for photos as rain stopped with free access to the castle. Your ideas and support helped make the day and I appreciated it very much.
