A firework display can be a wonderful way to celebrate your big day. Once the show starts, all eyes will be drawn to the sky. A chance to stop for a moment, to take it all in. This once in a lifetime day that you and your guests will remember forever. For couples getting married at Rose Castle, The Chinese Room is a truly magical setting to watch a firework display, with its floor to ceiling bay windows overlooking the vast grounds below.
Sparklers will light up your wedding night whatever the time of year. Not only will guests of all ages enjoy waving their hands in their air to light up the sky, it will also make for some seriously romantic pictures.
Gathering round the fire, drink in hand, can be a wonderful way to end an exciting day. Sit back and take it all in, all your loved ones, together in one place. For example, at Rose Castle, you can have a firepit out on The Bishop’s Lawn or a bonfire out beyond the moat woodland for the perfect view of the castle at night.
A live band can provide a fantastic atmosphere for your big day and is sure to get people up and dancing in the evening. You may even wish to have a band play as you walk down the aisle, as you gather for drinks after the ceremony, or during your wedding breakfast. From any genre to a brass band, steel drums, a harpist or string quartet - the possibilities are almost endless.
Photo booths are always a big hit with guests. Choose a backdrop and props that suit your own style and let your guests enjoy themselves. They will go home with a lovely memento to help them remember your big day forever. A second copy can be added to your guestbook along with a handwritten note. You’ll enjoy looking through your guestbook for years to come.
Do you plan to have lots of children at your wedding? A bouncy castle will help keep them happily entertained. You may find your adult guests getting involved too! For couples having their big day at Rose Castle, there’s plenty of space for a bouncy castle on The Bishop’s Lawn. You can even have a lawn game going at the same time.
Bird of Prey experience
Dazzle your guests with a bird of prey display. Your guests may even get a chance to handle the birds and take photos with them. Or for a truly magical experience, why not put out all the stops and have your wedding rings delivered by a bird of prey? Your guests will be talking about your wedding for years to come. At Rose Castle, there’s plenty of space to make this a reality with the Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre.
