Nothing says stately fairytale more than getting married in a castle! This is the love story of Ash and Dougie who said ‘I do’ with class and style at one of the North West’s most desirable wedding venues: Peckforton Castle!
Their Peckforton Castle Wedding Vision!
The couple wanted a romantic, simple and classy wedding. They loved the idea of a black tie affair where people could dress in their very best.
For their special day, the couple chose Peckforton Castle. They are fans of old buildings, and, in the words of Ash, ” You can’t get much older than a castle!” They fell in love with the tall ceilings, beautiful alcoves and atmospheric architecture. The drive up to the castle itself was really important to Ash, and she couldn’t have been more impressed. In short, the venue blew the couple away – “it just couldn’t be topped!”
The Wedding Dress!
Ash really wanted an elegant wedding dress. She loves Spanish designers and Pronovias was her ultimate bridal gown goal! After a long hunt, Ash found ‘the one’ at the Knutsford Wedding Gallery. Ash describes the boutique as “beautiful”.
Ash chose the Nuria dress: a striking crepe gown with long sleeves, a dramatic split and bateau neckline. We love its simplicity and ADORE the feature feather sleeves.

Advice for Those Planning a Wedding?
“Try and save on costs as much as possible, because everything adds up so much. Cut costs on things that matter the least to you. Secondly, get married where you truly want to, because it really does mean the world on the day. Finally, don’t rush into choosing suppliers, take your time and research.”
