at the glorious Pentillie Castle
We absolutely love this venue and it is without doubt one of our most romantic ones. Set in spectacular Cornish location with extensive mature gardens and dreamy views across the River Tamar, it's charms are very hard to ignore! Built in 1698 and re-modelled in 1809, it has a fascinating history [more of which later] and it also has its own utterly fabulous Bathing Hut [pictured] which is a separate stone building within the 2000 acre estate, standing on its own quayside and perfect for more intimate weddings or civil ceremonies.
On Sunday 19 October they are holding a Wedding Fair and so you will have the opportunity to explore this exquisite Castle.
Sudeley Castle is full of charm, history and intrigue
For all you history lovers out there you can't get much better than this. Sudeley Castle is not only stunning and beautiful but is steeped in history, and has royal connections spanning a thousand years. We've had a lovely last half hour reading all about the scandal, sadness, treason and tragedy of Henry VIII's widow Katherine Parr who once lived here. Henry himself, Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, Elizabeth I and Richard III have all also played a part in Sudeley's story. King Charles I found refuge here during the Civil War.... we could go on and on, it's truly fascinating. However, back on track to weddings...
The ultimate fairytale venue
If you are looking for the ultimate fairytale wedding venue to make you feel like a princess on your wedding day, then a castle venue is a must! We know from this site that they are perennially popular and Roch Castle, dating back from the 13th century and a perfect example of Norman architecture, would be an ideal choice. It offers panoramic views over the sea, mountains and Pembrokeshire coast, and is located within extensive private landscaped grounds. Not only that,
