We instantly fell in love with Cluny Castle! It is so elegant, the chapel was exactly what we were looking for, it was like a fairytale! We know everyone says your wedding day is the best day of your life, but ours definitely was and that was all down to the stunning location of Cluny Castle and the all round greatness of Natalie and the whole team at Cluny. Thank you so much for everything you did for us, we would recommend Cluny Castle to anyone in a heartbeat!

the best day of our lives
Hello, There's not enough words to express our thanks to you all for giving us our dream wedding on Saturday 1 October, it really was the best day of our lives. We have put together just a few words below. We came to view Cluny about a year ago when we were early in the wedding planning process. We instantly fell in love with the Castle, it looked so elegant. The chapel was exactly what we were looking for, and having been shown around the rest of the castle, it was like a fairytale. Having viewed it and found a date that worked perfectly, we couldn’t say no! Right from the outset Natalie was a great help, ensuring all of the details were taken care of. In the build up to our wedding, we were kept well informed about the order of the day (which we were totally in control of - but Natalie’s advice and expertise were invaluable). During the weekend of our wedding, we were welcomed by Natalie and her team at Cluny who showed us to our accommodation and ensued we were settled in prior to running through a rehearsal with us in the beautiful chapel. Natalie was at hand first thing on our wedding day, touching up the last little bits and sorting the little things we had forgotten to do - taking away any stresses we had! She was invaluable throughout the whole day, from helping us organise for our dog to be there during the ceremony to helping with Katie’s veil when it got stuck! When, I’m sure she would have rather been doing other things or having a well deserved break, she was helping the photographers get their perfect shots and still making sure the day was running to schedule. She didn’t stop for one minute and was still working hard long after we had all gone to bed. It’s fair to say that had Natalie have not been there, the day wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did. She is an absolute asset to Cluny and should be proud of everything she’s done for us. Natalie really is a superstar and we are so lucky to have met her. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her. We know everyone says your wedding day is the best day of your life, and ours definitely was, but a lot of that was down to the stunning location of Cluny Castle and the all round greatness of Natalie and the team at Cluny. We would recommend Cluny Castle to anyone and we only wish we had an excuse to go back again soon!! Thank you so much for everything, Kindest regards and best wishes to you all for the future. Happy wedding planning Natalie!! Thanks Katie, Lewis and Eric the dog (who is still enjoying his 15 minutes of fame)

Morning all I just want to say the biggest thank you for welcoming me and Bruce to the castle and allowing us to have our ceremony with yourselves, along with our families.

A Fairytale Dream Come True!
Firstly we wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for all your help in making Andy and Lindsay's celebrations so special. We made so many wonderful memories which will be treasured and shared for many years to come. We wanted specifically to mention Natalie who helped us so much in navigating the whole wedding planning process, and being there for us during our stay at the castle and on the actual day keeping us all on track. You were always so friendly, always approachable and able to support us in lots of ways. Thank you so much. Thank you too Cosmo for allowing us to share your family home. It was tremendous. You enabled our son to fulfill a lifelong dream to live in a castle and marry his sweetheart in a fairytale castle. Cluny is so unique and stunning and their wedding was a dream come true!
