    Incredible Kylie

    This was our most flawless vendor. We never had any issues with them, from our initial tour to our wedding night. Their prices are incredibly reasonable, and I say that as a professional event planner. The food was delicious, the venue was gorgeous, and every staff member was attentive and friendly. I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding, and if I have the chance to work with them again I will.

We Are Gathered... We Are Gathered... Wedding Officiants

Over the years I have performed many wedding ceremonies at the Kings Court Castle.. Everyone there is friendly and knowledgeable. The inside the castle is elegant. The chapel is quaint and a bit rustic but, WOW, the vintage stained glass wall that frames the wedding riser is magnificent! When booking the site, one thing to remember is that it is pretty much left up to the couple and the officiant to organize the "Who does what by when"s of the ceremony. Select a well experienced officiant familiar with the site. (Like me! :-)) By selecting the King's Court Castle, you can't go wrong! Feel free to call me for a reference!
