Our wedding at Rowton Castle truely was a magical day.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the next day the whole staff team ensured we wanted for nothing! In particular when one of the bridesmaid's fake eyelash fell off a female member of staff went above and beyond her duty to phone a friend and ask her to drive over with some glue, She did!!!! It was trivial..yet they wanted to ensure everything ran smoothly for us.
Our master of ceremonies Gareth Winebloom was exceptional. He kept us informed throughout the day of what was happening and when, ensuring it was how we requested for everything to be i.e. from the table decor to when we cut the cake and had our first dance. He certainly is a credit to Rowton and many of our guests remarked how attentive he was, not only to our needs but to all of our family and friends!
The food was delicious. Our starter was a Warm Crispy Pastry Tartlet filled with Mixed Wild Mushrooms topped with a Soft Poached Egg spun with a duo of Tomato and Basil Dressings. Not the safest choice for a wedding but indeed a good one. It was hot and 'went down a treat.' The service throughout the wedding breakfast was excellent. The staff made sure our food was hot and the nine tables all ate at the same time. In the evening we chose the Hog Roast, again a good choice. The presentation of a full pig on display was certainly a talking point.
Credit must go to all the staff behind the scenes who made our wedding a day to remember! We would recommend Rowton to anyone who is looking for a beautiful venue!!
