Peckforton Castle was the stunning venue that was chosen by Matt & Dan for their wedding on the 30th December 2014. The Castle has been designated as a Grade I listed building.
The building has not been used as a family residence since 1939. During the 1970s and 1980s it was used as a location for shooting films and television programmes. The castle was bought in 1988 by Evelyn Graybill, who converted it into a hotel. In 2006 it was purchased by the Naylor family, who expanded its use to include hosting weddings, conferences, and other functions.
Our company first met Matt and Dan when they attended a wedding fair that we had organised , prior to that we had been in contact by email. Prior to committing themselves they wanted to see the quality of our venue dressing in person instead of just photos.
The couple had dedicated two years to planning every detail of their wedding and were very hands on. Therefore attention to detail was a must.
We collected 220 Naomi Roses and 250 Gypsophila on the Saturday before the wedding and started making the Candelabra flowers and top table flowers the day before the wedding. Six hours later the flowers were complete and looked amazing.
On the day itself we did the venue dressing for the Great Hall, The Hexagonal Room and the Gallery. It was amazing and we would like to thank Matt, Dan and all the staff at Peckforton Castle who made us feel very welcome.
