We got engaged back in September 2021, and after visiting Clearwell Castle, knew immediately that this was the place where we wanted to get married. With its stunning castle grounds, dramatic architecture and picturesque countryside, we felt like we were stepping into a fairy tale.
Everyone who works at Clearwell Castle are so friendly, helpful and welcoming; going above and beyond to meet our needs and expectations. From our first visit up until the big day itself, all of the staff took the stress out of planning the wedding, always giving us peace of mind and answering our questions quickly. They were incredibly accommodating and made it so easy for us to arrange additional visits throughout the year to see the venue, and even allowed us to test the sound system and other services before the big day.
We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Clearwell Castle, especially Lottie, Simon, Ann and Hannah for making our wedding the best day ever. In our first visits, we were met by Lottie, who showed us the grounds and guided us through the process and recommended suppliers. We then met our wedding co-ordinator Simon, who was incredible and even went out of his way to organise video calls with us because we lived far away. Simon gave us some brilliant ideas on how we can make our wedding day even more special, and gave us confidence in our own ideas too. He also clarified the day’s itinerary so we were able to inform our suppliers and wedding party early in the process. Simon was even available during weekends and evenings to answer all of our questions, and always found time for us.
On the wedding day, both Hannah and Ann worked so hard to make sure everything ran smoothly, from helping set up and organise our suppliers and centrepieces, to welcoming the wedding guests and making everyone feel relaxed (including ourselves!). Many of our guests provided amazing feedback about the staff. Despite us needing to make last minute changes to the guest lists, Ann and Hannah were so helpful in being prepared for this and made everything on the day look effortless (even though we know so much hard work went on behind the scenes). They decorated the tables using our own homemade centrepieces and they made it look so much more amazing than what we first envisioned. The food was delicious, the portions were extremely generous for both the wedding breakfast and evening buffet. Hannah even helped keep the evening entertainment and cellar venue a surprise for our guests.
We’re so pleased we chose our wedding to be at Clearwell Castle. We cannot fault them in any way and they are worth every penny. The venue is absolutely incredible and the staff even more so!
