"To - All The Staff at Peckforton Castle ..... WOW where do we start to thank you for making our dream wedding ideas a magical reality - a true fairy tale wedding ...

From all the planning, emails and calls of help with the wedding co-ordinators in the run up,
To all the general manager Dave's help during the stay inc. the alarm issue when steaming my dress the night before, all the running round and organising on the morning itself, him and Ian being so patient and keeping me smiling on the walk to the ceremony (and finding a tissue quick plus holding all the bags) and well just making the whole day run exactly as I had planned.

Also to all the waiters, waitresses and bar staff for being so nice and helpful, To the reception ladies for printing the grooms speech just in time ... without it I'm sure he would of found those few minutes stood up there an awful lot harder, And all the porters for their help unloading and loading A LOT of stuff, We have so much thanks to give to every single one of you and are so grateful for all you did.

We now have the happiest, most precious memories of our wonderful wedding that we will never forget."
Julie & Kev


"Dear Poppy and Vanessa, Thank you so much for all your hard work and help to ensure our wedding, which took place on 23rd July, was the most special and beautiful day.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect location and a team of staff as professional as we had the pleasure of dealing with throughout to make it our dream day. We were even blessed with perfect weather.

We have received so many complements about the venue and all our guests enjoyed themselves immensely. Feedback on the food was also excellent.

Please can you pass on our thanks to the team of staff present on the day (we’re sorry that we can’t remember everyone by their first names to thank them individually), we would like to give a special thanks to the Duty Manager on the day, Dave, who ensured the day ran smoothly and was always on hand to help with any requests. Best wishes."
Hannah and Shawn


"Hi Vanessa, Just a very quick email to say a very big THANKYOU for all that you did in helping us to plan the perfect wedding! The whole day could not have been any better and we’ve received so many compliments about the castle and, in particular, the high quality of the food and your amazing staff! Thank you so so much."


"Many thanks for a wonderful day yesterday on the occasion of my son Richard and Jennifer's wedding. The castle is stunning, our executive room was pretty special, the food was delicious, the service was brilliant, the birds of prey were terrific but most of all, the staff were amazing. Special thanks to Ian the Concierge, nothing was too much trouble and he was always on hand when you needed help. You have all helped to make the day one we will never forget, thank you."
