You are a real credit to your craft
To Katy & the entire Rowallan Team, We can't thank you enough for making our special day even more special! After a long wait with Covid, it was amazing to finally get married and celebrate with all our friends & family. What really made it a celebration that will stick with us for the rest of our lives is the way you all here at Rowallan conducted yourselves with such care, attention to detail & professionalism! You are all a real credit to your craft & we can't thank you enough! xx

A Magical Experience for your Wedding Day
Katy and the staff went above and beyond to make our day special. We had our wedding in Canada but had a second reception in my husband's hometown at Rowallan Castle. We had approximately 30 guests travel from Canada plus another 30 family members locally. The day was magically, the food was amazing, the atmosphere was second to none. Katy was a true professional in trying to coordinate everything with me while I was in Canada, she even pitched in the day of the event to help us get everything ready. The rooms are exquisite. We even had guests stay at the smaller old castle as well, which was an experience in itself. Every Bride dreams of being a Princess on her Wedding Day so why not have your Wedding at a Castle with top notch staff who make your day everything you dreamed it could be.

Winter wedding
We had the most wonderful wedding at Rowallan in December 2021. Katy was excellent at remembering small details I’d mentioned and on the day everything ran smoothly. Rowallan is a gorgeous place to get married!
