Your guests will approach Fonthill Castle down a long tree-lined drive. Acres of pristine parkland provide numerous breathtaking outdoor ceremony sites. A quaint springhouse and botanical specimens dot the picturesque Fonthill grounds. The al fresco second floor Terrace serves as your cocktail area - we set up a bar here so your guests may view the bucolic grounds while sipping a cocktail. After cocktails, the terrace stairway winds your guests down to the Garden Ballroom Tent for dining and dancing under chandeliers.

Adjacent to the al fresco terrace is the pavilion. Mercer decorated the walls and vaulted ceiling with a lavish display of colorful Moravian ceramic tiles that celebrate nature, the labors of the seasons and the quarters of the compass. These unique architectural tiles are still hand-fired on the property, and are available for purchase as favors for your guests.

Please contact Memorable Affairs for date availability and site inspection. Read less

It was always a dream of ours to have our wedding reception at Fonthill Castle and we were thrilled to have it exceed our expectations! From the very beginning, Memorable Affairs took care of anything and everything we needed for our day. From my constant questions (big or small), to the reception tent set up and organization, to the beautiful food, to museum regulations, everything was truly perfect. We could not be more happy with how our wedding reception turned out and how attentive the staff was to our many details and involved set up. We simply dropped off boxes with directions and they set up everything perfectly for us! They knew how important our theme and decor was to us and they did a wonderful job of making our vision come alive! We also had some unique items come up that we want to have (cigar bar, popcorn bar, signature drinks, and a vintage car display) and they were more than happy to work with us and make them happen! Our guests were blown away with the reception, venue, and food. We are still receiving so many compliments because it was such a unique and beautiful experience. With Memorable Affairs having such great experience with Fonthill weddings, it was reassuring knowing that we were in trusted hands with helpful advice.

Additionally, the food as well was exceptional. They worked with us to craft the perfect meal that our guests are still raving about! Both the appetizers and plated dinner were phenomenal quality and unique dishes. There were so many delicious options to choose from that made our plated dish stand out from other weddings in a big way. The wedding cake also was included in our package which came from one of our favorite local bakeries. The cake quality and decoration was also amazing and we cannot wait to defrost it on our one year anniversary and have it again!

Overall, we are over the moon with how beautiful and glamorous our reception was and we could not be more grateful with how it all turned out!

Our wedding on Sept. 5, 2015 could not have been more perfect. Jack and Cathy were so amazing to work with and they made the whole planning process super easy. The food was excellent, the staff was excellent and the location was beautiful. We came with 2 carloads of decorations that they set up for us and as the bride they assigned me my own personal assistant for the day to help me out with whatever I needed. People are still talking about how awesome everything was. We had such an amazing day and couldn't have asked for anything better.

My husband and I got married on May 2, 2015 at the Mercer Museum. We used Memorable Affairs for our catering and site rental. They took care of all of the details for our big day! We were beyond pleased with their professionalism and attention to details. Our friends and family are still talking about how amazing and fun our wedding was 7 months later!

When searching for a wedding venue we were looking for something unique yet within our budget. After finding the Fonthill Castle it quickly moved up to the top of our list and I'm glad it did. The grounds of the Castle looked great, Jack and Cathy of Memorable Affairs were incredibly responsive and professional, even to our occasional constructive criticisms and they did their best to accommodate our requests. The tent for the reception is very flexible and large enough while still having an intimate feeling. The inside is lined with some chandeliers hanging giving it a formal feel. The food was terrific and even though the bar was BYOB none of our guests would have ever known as we had great bartenders and a signature cocktail on top of everything else.

The Fonthill Castle provides a charm and feel that is distinctive of the typical rustic, country club or formal ballroom weddings that have become an annual spring event for many of us in our late twenties. And while there are certainly venues that are much more and much less expensive, for us the Fonthill Castle was 'just right' and we couldn't be happier.

*Disclaimer* It seems that most everyone thinks their wedding was 'perfect' and 5 out of 5 stars. I've done my best to include some specific details and to be constructive. If you're looking for something different and willing to accept the Fonthill Castle for what it is I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Our wedding day was everything I wanted and then some! I continue to receive feedback about how nice the wedding was, how great the food tasted, how much fun people had. Exactly the kind of feedback you wish and hope for when in the planning phases. Jack & Cathy were so accommodating, attentive and quick to respond whenever I had a question or concern. I am so glad we chose Fonthill & Memorable Affairs specifically to host our wedding. I can't say enough about how great it was. Mary, whom works for Jack & Cathy will never be forgotten by myself, my husband or our family. She catered to us from the moment we arrived at 2:30 in the afternoon, until we left around 11 at night. Bringing me water, food, champagne, whatever I needed, Mary was on it!! I also must compliment Cathy and her staff on their organization the weeks leading up to the wedding as well as the day of. It was an awesome day, thank you Memorable Affairs so much!!

This was the only venue we looked at. As soon as we got one glimpse of the grounds and Castle I was sold! Our wedding day was simply stunning! We loved every minute of our day! Our guests had a great time. Everyone thought it was beautiful! Memorable Affairs is their exclusive caterer, who were amazing. Fran with memorable affairs took care of everything for our day and made sure we stayed on schedule! She was fantastic and we can't say enough about how much we appreciated her.
