As a professional, full time Disc Jockey, I have been to hundreds of venues over my 18 year career. When I got engaged, I mentioned to my fiance that there were only a handful of venues that I would really consider for my wedding. Luckily, she trusted my judgement and after looking at a few venues, Stokesay castle was the wedding venue we chose. We could not be happier. Our team of Emily and Alissa, who coordinate weddings, did an amazing job along with Jordan our banquet captain. Everyone was friendly and fun throughout the planning process and listened to some our unique yet workable ideas such as a late night boneless buffalo wing bar which I personally wanted yet never experienced at a wedding. Another point worth mentioning is that small details are not overlooked at this venue. My one concern was that my pasta bar may take extra time and drag dinner out and that I may be waiting in line a long time for food. As soon as the toasts and blessing were finished, my wife and I were immediately asked what we wanted on our pasta and the order was put in for us so we could enjoy time together without standing in line. I thought this was a great touch that I didn't even think of. I also enjoyed the flexibility as our DJs had the party rocking and we needed more time. The staff gave me plenty of options for the bar to go overtime and ways to fit my budget. This allowed us to enjoy the party for another hour. Post wedding, our guests would not stop complimenting the dinner service; especially the pasta station and wing bar. While I did not have my ceremony here, there is a beautiful area for that too. In closing, I would not have changed a thing and even requested the names of the entire staff who worked my wedding to thank them. Big shout out to Terri, Kurt, Amy, Joy, Jay, Jillian and Ian. Thanks for making our day a day we will always remember!Sent on 09/19/2017

Magical Winter Wedding
I can't say enough good things about Stokesay Castle. We had our wedding in December and it could not have been a more perfect venue for a winter wedding. The decor was breathtaking and very classy. All of our guests raved about the food. The service was incredible and I truly felt like part of a family.Sent on 01/11/2019

I don't even know where to start! Everyone that worked with my husband and I for our wedding at Stokesay made it the best day of our lives. It all ran so smoothly. Alexis, Stokesay's wedding coordinator, is such a WONDERFUL person to work with. She truly puts your mind at ease on the days leading up to your wedding, as well as the day of. She answered each of my questions, took the time to add/subtract/do/redo plans with me as we got closer, and make accommodations as needed with complete professionalism. She took care of everything that I asked her to without a problem. She made my entire wedding experience so much fun! On the day of, we had a personal server that ensured that my husband and I, as well as our bridal party, were taken care of. She was by our sides all day long and truly made our day even better. During our reception, the servers for dinner and at the bar, were so efficient and kind. We had guests telling us how wonderful the staff was! I highly recommend Stokesay to any couple that is looking for a venue that will make their wedding day a dream come true in more ways than one!Sent on 11/13/2018
