Rustic castle wedding in Gloucestershire

Many brides have dreamt of their perfect wedding day since they were a little girl, and what could be dreamier than hiring out a castle for the day? Planning this wedding felt like a real-life fairy tale from start to finish, with the special touches and DIY elements ensuring the day was one of a kind.

Arrival: Guests were welcomed to the castle grounds with a glass of champagne in one of the wonderful courtyards.

Ceremony: The ceremony was held in one of the castle’s reading rooms, with gorgeous big windows allowing light to flow in and giving the guests a glimpse of the gardens.

Wedding breakfast: Ceremony done, the bride and groom along with their guests enjoyed music, cocktails and canapés in the beautifully landscaped gardens. A four-course wedding breakfast was then served in the great hall with an accompanying pianist.

Party: The great hall was transformed ready for an evening of singing and dancing with a five-piece Motown band and later a DJ. During the evening, guests could indulge in a variety of treats from the DIY sweet table and freshly prepared afternoon tea.

Enchanting and magical are just two of the words I would use to describe the wedding day which was planned, organised and styled by Oligra.

Oligra organised everything from flowers and catering, to live pianist and band, right through to the intricacies of scented candles, wedding favours and individual personal gifts.

As a guest, the day flowed effortlessly and without any hiccups - if there were any, we certainly weren’t made aware of them. Nothing felt rushed and there were no lulls.

Thank you Oligra, what a fantastic day! I will most definitely be getting in touch with regards to any events I have in the future and would highly recommend their service to anyone and everyone.”
