1. Impressive spaces
If you love grand entrances and elegant reception rooms, a castle setting will be sure to take your breath away. There are usually many rooms to choose from, and since you’ll likely have the whole place to yourself, there’s freedom for you and your guests to move around and take advantage of the various spaces.
At Rose Castle, six historic reception rooms are all yours to use as you wish. From cosy libraries to grand dining rooms, to the affectionately named Chinese Room with its hand-painted wall coverings and large bay windows offering spectacular views of the grounds.
2. Stunning grounds
Many castles sit amongst beautiful grounds, providing a stunning backdrop for your big day. Moats, orchards and acres of countryside provide a wonderful setting for drinks and canapés, games, or simply relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere.
Rose Castle is set in the beautiful Caldew valley with views of the Lake District fells in the distance. For couples getting married here, the carefully curated gardens and spacious lawns are all yours to enjoy.
3. Everything in one place
Most castle venues offer everything you need for your big day. You can exchange your vows, enjoy your wedding breakfast, dance the night away and retire to your bridal suite, all in one place. No travelling between venues to disrupt the flow of the day. From the moment the day begins, you and your guests can relax and enjoy the celebrations.
Many castle properties have atmospheric spaces licensed for wedding ceremonies. It may be in an onsite Chapel, great hall, or in the grounds outside. Couples getting married at Rose Castle can say ‘I do’ in the exquisite Chapel, any of the six reception rooms, or outside in the walled enclave of the Pettinger’s Garden.
