We got married at Forter Castle in August this year and were truly blown away by the experience! Living in Devon and not having visited Forter Castle prior to our big day, we were a lightly apprehensive about what to expect but we certainly need not have been as everything was perfect! The castle is in a truly stunning location with breathtaking views. The interior of the castle is equally impressive with beautiful furnishings in every room. Lairds room with its exquisite four poster bed and roll top bath was just amazing to get ready in prior to the wedding. The small chapel creates an incredibly intimate wedding atmosphere which is hard to describe until you experience it for yourself. We would also highly recommend John Ramsay, a local chef who came in to cook for us on the wedding day - all of our guests commented on the seasonal and perfectly cooked food. Furthermore, I cannot thank Katherine Pooley and her team enough who were always on hand prior to our stay with any queries I had and who were more than helpful. All in all we had a fairytale wedding day and truly relaxing holiday with our close family in the most beautiful setting!
