Rose Castle Full Description
Whether you’re planning an intimate wedding for 20, or an elaborate two-day celebration or something in between, your wedding is unique to the two of you. With a history of hosting events for over 800 years, we understand the importance of having your friends and family with you to celebrate such a momentous occasion, and are experts at creating the perfect gathering space. We don’t believe in offering set packages; we prefer to understand your vision, learn your requirements, and prepare something personal to you and your guests that truly reflects the pair of you. The castle and beautiful gardens are exclusively yours to take your vows in front of your nearest and dearest – and the backdrops provide the most stunning locations for your photographs. With a range of spaces offering a huge variety, Rose Castle will be yours for the duration of your wedding day or even wedding week. We are able to host civil and other ceremonies at Rose Castle. We are blessed with the most stunning chapel in which sunlight pours through the handmade stain glass windows, while our Chinese Room is the perfect space to hold larger ceremonies, with views across the gardens, all the way to the tree-lined river beyond.

Absolutely wonderful
We had the most amazing day at Rose Castle. From the moment we stepped foot in it we knew we wanted to get married there, I actually found it quiet overwhelming when I first visited the castle, standing in the chapel and the Chinese room, I’d never been in such a beautiful space. It is unique and exclusive, we loved how our family and friends had the run of the whole place, so many lovely rooms. Another selling point for us was the fact that we could hire the castle for the night before the wedding too, allowing us to really make the most of the whole weekend, it all goes by so fast and it allowed us to have a more intimate dinner with our close family and bridal party the night before too. Not to mention the fabulous bedrooms to stay in and get ready in the morning of the wedding! Paula was our wedding planner and she was absolutely fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, and she was so quick to get back to me, I would often send little queries or requests on WhatsApp and she would reply straight away. She provided valuable guidance whilst giving us enough freedom to make it our own. Tony was wonderful on our big day, working hard to make sure everyone had a drink in hand and everything was running smoothly. The dining room became the most perfect dancefloor at night, it was like we had our own night club, whilst also having the luxury of other rooms for guests who preferred to drink and chat. We can’t recommend Rose Castle enough, it truly was a dream of a weekend and we wish we could do it all again!

Gorgeous food!
Had the pleasure of staying here two nights for a wedding. Throughly enjoyed, all the rooms were tasteful and comfortable. Warm. Rip roaring fires in the communal areas. The food was gorgeous and I can’t honestly think of one complaint for the whole weekend.

The gardens really set it apart from other venues
We watched the transformation of the castle happen over the last year or so. As a result, we know the attention to detail that’s gone into the renovation work; from the staircase to the intricacies of the chapel. The rooms are stunning and the whole venue was super practical. Something we didn’t really appreciate until the wedding, and what was remarked upon by a lot of our guests, was just how beautiful the gardens were. The grounds are so expansive, with different sections surrounding the castle. It really sets it apart from other venues.
