After searching for a unique wedding venue, I booked a visit to Highcliffe Castle and hoped my then fiancé would love it as much as I did from images I had seen online. As we turned into the driveway, we were greeted with the sight of the huge, wooden arched doorway and I was ready to book the date there and then! The events team and wedding coordinators we dealt with were professional, accommodating and really friendly.
Four years on we still believe getting married at Highcliffe Castle was the perfect option for us. The castle, the grounds, the interiors – who doesn’t want to get married in a castle?! Everything was stunning and it is such a fantastic venue. Our guests always tell us that our wedding is ‘the one to beat’, everyone has very fond memories of the venue and your suppliers. Getting married in the beautiful Winter Garden and having our wedding breakfast in the magnificent Great Hall were particular highlights for us.
I remember arriving at the castle on my wedding day and my son, who was 4 at the time, saw me in the car, in my dress and said ‘Mama looks like a Princess!’ That’s exactly how Highcliffe Castle made me feel that day. They were so accommodating with everything, timings, spacing, my crazy aisle runner. Everything went so smoothly and everyone I know said how beautiful the venue was.
I know most brides worry and stress so much about their wedding day and all the little details. I was worried things would be placed wrong or just be wrong on the day. On our wedding day things ran so so smoothly! Everything was perfect! There were actually decorations I had forgot to say where to display and the team adapted and laid everything out and it looked amazing!
We had the most magical wedding ceremony at Highcliffe Castle. It really was the perfect backdrop to our day and everyone commented on how beautiful it was. The team couldn’t do enough to help and made the planning smooth and the day very special. If you’re looking for the wow factor, you’ll find it at Highcliffe.
