Castle Ladyhawke is a Scottish border castle in Tuckasegee, North Carolina, providing an unforgettable venue for weddings and other momentous occasions. Boasting an incredible backdrop, the property itself is nestled just in front of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Just 20 minutes North of Cashiers, a quaint nearby village, this venue combines a convenient location with breathtaking surroundings. This beautiful building happens to be western North Carolina’s only fully functioning castle constructed from historically accurate Scottish architecture. A retreat from the urban world, weddings in Castle Ladyhawke are the epitome of intimacy.

Facilities

Surrounded by a landscape of mountains and trees, the building looks out over sweeping views of the Tuckasegee River Valley. Inside the castle, an epic 3-level spiral staircase winds up the building until guests reach their magnificent bedroom suites with luxurious spa baths. The Castle is equipped with 3 lavish suites for getting ready and The Great Hall offers plenty of space for your ceremony or reception. The venue's functional indoor or outdoor versatility allows couples to personalize the space with their distinctive style for guest counts of 15-140.

    One of a kind experience

    I own a company called Bridal DJs. We do hundreds of weddings a year and I just wanted to take a moment to submit a review for this wedding venue. This was my first time working at Castle Ladyhawke. I could not get over how authentic this venue looked. It was like going to Scotland or Norway. The staff were extremely friendly and had everything put together very nicely. If you are looking for a one of a kind experience vs most other wedding barns and buildings then I highly recommend this venue to you. It truly was amazing.

    Castle Ladyhawke's reply:

    Hi Mike, thank you so much for your review. We enjoyed working with you and your company and you are welcome anytime! You provide a fantastic experience!

    Castle Ladyhawke - a dream come true!

    From the moment we first arrived for a tour we fell in love with the Castle!
    Every little detail of the Bridal suite is so well thought through! The suite is huge! Makeup area is a separate room, so we had so much room for fun photos and video! And it has a balcony and so much natural light! Loved the huge elegant bathtub in a room with the view!
    Wherever you go in the Castle, mountain views are spectacular!
    We even went all the way up the stunning spiral staircase to the top of the tower, so many gorgeous photo opportunities! Loved the staircase as well!!
    This is a dream location for the couples and for any photographer/videographer.

    The ambiance of the Castle is so amazing. So many different spaces inside and outside for the guests to roam around.

    The ceremony site is gorgeous and spacious, right next to the Castle walls with the mountains behind.

    We absolutely loved Kelsie, the Wedding Director! She knows the answer to any questions and she’s such a huge help! She just makes you feel completely relaxed and chill. It means a lot, especially on a wedding day!

    We’ve been filming weddings for many years and I just simply can’t compare any other venue in North Carolina to Castle Ladyhawk. So beautiful and welcoming the Castle is.
    It’s a rare find!

    Castle Ladyhawke's reply:

    Wow! Thank you for your review! We absolutely loved having you at the castle and we are excited to see the video content you produce for our clients!
