Best day ever


I wish I could give more than 5 stars! I had my wedding at Searles Castle on 10/16/22 and everything about it was amazing. Our day-of coordinator, Kyle, was wonderful to work with. He was responsive throughout the entire process, extremely flexible, and ensured everything was exactly as we wanted on the day of... not to mention, he never looked even remotely stressed! My bustle broke before the reception and Kyle was by my side coaching my bridesmaids through it.

The venue itself is unbeatable. The food and atmosphere are breathtaking. Seeing a bride pull up in a horse-drawn carriage and later tossing a bouquet out of a tower is not something you'll ever see at another wedding (unless it's at Searles!!). Our guests are saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to.

Thank you Kyle and the Searles team for making our special day more than we could've imagined!

A unique and fabulous experience

What a unique venue! Our guests raved about how unusually interesting the venue was, how much fun they had exploring the space, and how DELICIOUS the food was. I mean, who wouldn’t want to say they got married at a castle? The castle is amazing for photography and we would’ve loved to have spent hours just on our photos- advice from the staff we wished we had heeded. Shaun, Brianna, and Jamie took great care of us and were quick about answering our many emails. On the day of, everything went smoothly and every detail was attended to. Even though we wedded in November, the tent was plenty comfortable. We are so glad we chose the castle for our special day and would do so again in a heartbeat!

Have your 'Cinderella Moment' at The Searles Castle

Are you ready for the best day of your life and the wedding of the century that will blow not only your guests, but YOU, THE BRIDE, away? Then get married at the Searles Castle in Windham, NH for a truly unforgettable start to your marriage. All 2024 & 2025 brides should be running to this location in hopes of booking it for their big day - Shaun and his team at the Castle are top-notch and made every single wish and dream we had a reality. From the initial doe-eyed visit to the site with my mother to the day after our wedding picking up our cake, the Searles Castle was a first-class vendor, treating us like royalty along every step of the way.

Shaun is a dream wedding coordinator; funny, smart, detailed, helpful, and committed to your every wish and desire. We are not local/from New Hampshire, so finding a coordinator that could meet our demands remotely was important to us. Shaun rose above all expectations, always making the time that was possible for us work and going out of his way to accommodate us. Shaun even allowed us to have our dog and ring-bearer attend each part of our wedding, from dawn until dusk. We will never get over having our little dog walk through the reception crowd and onto the dance floor. Shaun also made it possible for me to share a musical moment in the Castle on their Steinway piano with my husband that night. Being able to sneak away and go back inside the Castle for a private moment together on the piano is something we will cherish forever.

Shaun also recommended each of our vendors for the big day, and each one was an absolute ten out of ten: if we could go back and do it again, we wouldn't change a single thing. On our day we heard so many guests say that we had the most beautiful wedding they have ever seen and are now receiving the same comments on our wedding photos. I am still in shock at how our flowers, photos, and cake turned out - better than I had or could ever imagine! Shaun and The Searles Castle exceeded every hope and dream we had for our wedding: from the horse-drawn carriage to throwing the bouquet/garter from the tower, thank you for the day beyond our dreams.
