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!

Our perfect wedding day
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.Sent on 31/01/2020
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.

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!Sent on 31/01/2020
