Excellent Experience!

I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone that played a part in making my wedding day everything I ever dreamed my wedding day would be! Jessica was very helpful with getting me started during the planning stages. I wasn’t sure where to begin, but Jessica and Luis lead me in the right direction and stayed in constant contact to keep me updated and informed up until my actual wedding day. Thank you so much to Eve for taking such good care of me in the Princess Suite on the day of my wedding. You are truly the best! ❤️ From Stokesay’s preferred vendor list, I used Indigo Blooms for the beautiful drapery and floral decorations, and Sean Shipper of Party Express DJ’s who provided a great variety of musical entertainment for all of our guests to enjoy! If you are looking for a beautiful and unique venue to have your wedding, I cannot say enough wonderful things about Stokesay Castle and I encourage you to consider this magnificent establishment for your wedding venue!

Fantastic all around!!

We cannot speak highly enough about Stokesay, their entire team, and, most importantly, Hannah Kufro, our Wedding Coordinator that we worked with! My wife and I signed our venue contract one-year to the date ahead of our big day, with a different coordinator, one who ultimately ended up transitioning to a different organization just a week before our tasting was scheduled. For a couple planning a wedding, especially so close to their big day, this would normally have been an incredibly stressful change to hear about, however, we were expeditiously contacted by Hannah and met her days later at our tasting – immediately after meeting her we knew we were in great hands, and we both agree that our initial impression was spot on. Hannah’s attention to detail, flexibility, and knowledge have continued to impress ourselves, our parents, and our guests who experienced a phenomenal wedding just this past weekend. She not only hit the ground running with our event, but confirmed several details and was able to work with us to ensure our wedding day was as perfect as possible.

While I have personally sent messages to several friends I know who are engaged and looking for venues, I wanted to share this note here for those couples looking for venues – Stokesay should 100% be on your list; the charm, history, venue, and staff will all make your big day as perfect as you could ever dream of – if anything, just go check it out – once you see this in person you’ll see exactly what we are talking about.

With deepest gratitude,
Blake and Lindsay Tobias

For your Fairytale Wedding

When we found a castle nestled in the woods of Reading, PA, we knew this was the place for us. The castle was gorgeous and unique, and the outdoor ceremony space was beautiful. Everything was on site and in one package; the getting-ready rooms, the ceremony space, the cocktail hour, the reception space, the food, and the drinks were all provided by Stokesay. They even had the option of serving us food in our getting-ready rooms. Working with Jess Tremblay, one of the coordinators at Stokesay, was a breeze, and her experience was absolutely appreciated as we drew closer to our wedding day. She was extremely responsive and always had quick answers to our questions. Unfortunately, the weather required us to have our ceremony indoors, but Jess and the Stokesay team transitioned smoothly and without any work required from us. They worked well with our vendors and we couldn't ask for
anything more. The food by Chef Willie was amazing and the bar and bartenders were great as well. Our cake was custom made by Sharon and was delicious! Every member of the staff seemed dedicated to making sure our day went off without a hitch. We couldn't be more grateful for Jess and the team at Stokesay for their work, and we will always have a special place in our hearts for that castle in the woods.
