An absolutely beautiful venue that played a huge role in realising the wedding of our dreams. Whilst still some work needs to be done, for us that only added to the homely, unique and authentic atmosphere, and those breathtaking elements such as the spiral staircase, the domed ceiling in the entrance, incredible castle frontage and sweeping Beauty and the Beast staircase at the back, create the perfect backdrop to those all-important wedding photographs. Just stunning
Our son and new wife had their wonderful wedding reception at Castle Goring on Saturday. As parents we were very impressed with the wedding venue and felt we must share our thoughts. The whole experience of organising the wedding from the initial meeting with Lady C and her son Dima back in October to now has been superb. They were professional and accommodating to all our requests but most of all they made us feel extremely welcome to share their home on such a special occasion. We dressed the venue with many accessories and lots of greenery the day before the wedding to make it personal to us. On arrival at Castle Goring after a church service in Brighton we went upstairs to the beautiful lounge area for welcome drinks and had organised a pianist to play romantic music. As the sun was shining, some guests flowed out onto the balcony and into garden to make a wonderful atmosphere. We had about 120 guests so had opted for the marquee in the garden which was perfect. We used Super Events for the catering and their food and service was exceptional all through the event. The Bridal Suite was used during the day for the bride/bridesmaids needs. In the evening we organised a band to play in the Dance Room and another 100 or so guests turned up to celebrate with us. We had a bar in the foyer and marquee which worked well. It was great to have exclusivity of this amazing venue and we highly recommend Castle Goring to others. Thank you Lady C and Dima for letting us use your home and making our son and daughter-in-law's wedding so special and a day that we will always remember.
We instantly fell in love with Castle Goring from the moment we took a cab up the driveway and the impressive house came into view. Beyond the beauty of the location, the hosts were incredibly helpful in giving tours, answering questions and setting up for our big day. This venue is great value for money compared to other castles we visited, as we were encouraged to use the various spaces for different parts of the wedding. We used the ceremonial hall, the gardens (with marquee), the state rooms, the foyer and the bridal suite, and guests loved the experience of moving about and exploring an historic home. Our day was beautifully managed by the wonderful hosts, and we were able to just relax and enjoy ourselves. It is obvious that Castle Goring hosts care about relationships and love and don't just see weddings as an industry-this was evidenced by the personal relationships we have now made. We couldn't recommend the venue enough.
Gary and I had our wedding at this beautiful venue last July. We had the most extraordinary day, and now it seems like a dream. Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to change venues last minute and we’re so glad that we did. From the moment we visited the castle we knew it was the place for us. Everything we wished was catered for: picture perfect venue, space inside and out, disabled access, a piano, attentive and caring staff, wonderful food, plenty of toilet facilities and a truly memorable experience. I cannot praise this venue or the staff highly enough. As per normal challenges occurred during the wedding that can change the mood of the day, (such as the weather hindering the wedding breakfast service) we however were blissfully unaware due to the highly professional staff. Nothing was too much trouble for the venue manager, who made sure personal touches to the day were perfectly executed, and to top it all off Lady C and her son Dima were a pleasure to meet. If you are considering Castle Goring and reading through reviews my suggestion would be, don’t hesitate just book it. This venue has everything you could possibly need and the staff ensure your day really is perfect.
