My daughter and her now husband had their wedding here on 29th February 2020. It was everything they had hoped for including snow, though they might have preferred not to have the raging storm. There was nothing the staff could have done about the wind though they tried to keep us warm with an enormous fire in the great hall that blazed all the time we were there. The food was glorious and hot! We danced and chatted till midnight and everyone agreed with was one of the best weddings that they had ever attended (we even had an owl bring the rings). Thank you to everyone at the castle and a particular thank you to Elizabeth who was fantastic on the day.
