Autumn & Winter at the Castle

As we approach the winter season, we can once more look forward to a totally different wedding at the Castle. With the roaring fires, mulled wine and beautifully lit candles adorning our Great Hall, the autumn/winter season is a romantic and magical time of year.

As the leaves begin to fall, and the days become shorter and shorter, the Castle transforms into a rich and vibrant venue, the perfect place to share your dream wedding.
Gone are the days when summer weddings are the most sought after, indeed we now find our autumn months just as popular. The vivid autumnal colours, and the stark white frosts of winter create a magical setting to say ‘I do’.
Here are some reasons why we love our upcoming season at the Castle:
         Without the pressures of needing a perfect sunny day (as is often the way in the summer), you can relax knowing that The Great Hall and Drawing Rooms are just as spectacular as our Grounds & Gardens. The huge roaring fires in all our rooms create a beautifully cosy and intimate setting.
         The catering choices for autumn and winter are endless with stews, dumplings, pies and soups being a fabulous and warming treat for your guests. Why not try mulled cider, or toffee apples for extra fun!
         The smells of cinnamon and spice heighten the autumnal ambience and create a cosy and comforting feel to your special day.
         Why not consider a dusk wedding, creating a wonderfully atmospheric experience for you and your guests. Choose warm candles and fairy lights to enhance the mood.
         Branches, twigs and even small trees can make fantastic decorative centre pieces, using russet leaves and berries to really make a statement.
         The Castle is a photographer’s dream, and with the cold frosts and magical mists that descend, they are sure to capture some breath-taking shots for you to treasure forever.
         The festive period is always a popular time to get married and the Castle is the most splendid venue for a Christmassy experience with our 12 ft tree decorating the Great Hall.
