Great wedding experience at a lovely venue .
The venue itself is picturesque and really lends itself to wedding photos as it has a water fountain, flower gardens, gazebo, etc. as well as the actual castle (which is small in terms of Castle size but very beautiful).
On the day, the staff were attentive and ensured everything went smoothly. Pricing for what we had was very competitive.
