Where do I even start? There are not enough stars on here to give Stokesay. We loved it before we even visited, and were nervous that it wouldn't be as good in person, but when we visited it was even better than we expected. The venue is incredibly beautiful, the food is amazing, and the price is extremely affordable (especially coming from Jersey). It would have been worth it just for that, but the staff was actually the best part - everyone was always so nice, friendly, and enthusiastic (they even did most of the decorating, exactly as we had wanted, after my husband decided he'd had enough of it). The coordinator provided through the venue, Emily, could not have been more helpful - there are seriously not enough great things that I can say about her. Even guests who had very limited contact with her mentioned to me weeks later that they noticed how great she was. I had some really dumb questions, and she very patiently, thoroughly, and promptly answered every one - even the times I emailed her when she was in the middle of a currently very busy wedding season (and her first as the wedding coordinator) and mine was still a year away and by my own admission should not have been a priority at all. The castle was a pretty long drive for us and for most of our guests, but there is not a doubt in my mind that it was the right choice for us. If anyone in charge reads this, I don't care how much she's making already - please give Emily a raise!

AMAZING. What could be better than getting married in a castle? Getting married at Stokesay Castle! It was over the top perfect from the decor to the wait staff to the food! Everyone there made our day as perfect as possible! The wedding coordinator, Emily, was incredible! She was super organized and helpful but also very nice and a pleasure to work with! We would highly recommend Stokesay for ANY event!

I had my ceremony and reception at Stokesay Castle, and I could not have asked for a more perfect day. My fiancee and I planned our wedding for about 2 years from afar (we live in Texas but originally met in Pennsylvania). We started our planning with Lauren, and she was absolutely wonderful. However, I came to find out that they hired a new coordinator, Emily, in the middle of my planning process. A bit freaked out, I wanted to set up a meeting with Emily to make sure everything I originally planned was still good to go. From the first meeting we had with Emily all the way up until the last dance the night of the wedding, the services Emily and Stokesay provided us were unmatched, and we could not imagine a more perfect day for our wedding. No matter the circumstances, Emily always level headed and assured me that everything would go smoothly. We dropped off all of our decor the night before and Emily and her staff set it all up perfectly. My bridesmaids and I were well taken care of in the bridal suite getting ready the morning of with mimosas, a cheese and cracker tray, and lots of delicious wraps! Emily and the staff at Stokesay truly set the bar for what a wedding should look like.

My new husband and I were extremely happy with our wedding reception at Stokesay Castle. We were some of Emily's first couples, and I appreciated her attention to detail and desire to help us relax and feel comfortable. She offered to do many little things for us to make our evening and days leading up to the wedding more simple.

Overall, Stokesay is beautiful and well-run. The food is good and we felt like we got great value for our money.

One important side note is that Chris Polk, the baker on site, is exceptionally talented and deserves all the credit in the world. His cake was excellent and beautiful - it's exciting to see someone enjoy his work so much!

I could not be more happy with how my wedding turned out! It was a March 20th wedding, first day of spring and a crazy snowstorm decided to crash our wedding that day! Stokesay staff handled it perfectly!! I wanted an outdoor ceremony but since the snow kind of ruined that for us, I had no decor for the indoor ceremony! Lauren and her staff put some trees and candles out and made it look so fabulous! They set up all the centerpieces for me and made them look exactly how I showed them!
I arrived at 1030am, but the ceremony was not due to start until 530pm. The bridal party had our own hostess that made sure we had anything we could possibly want! We were even greeted with mimosas and a cheese/cracker tray! The scenery was to die for!! The snow just covered the grounds and the pictures were amazing! Their pastry chef made this amazing cake, he took my vision of a tree bark cake with a heart carved into it and made it an even better reality! The staff made sure there was a drink in my hand, or near me at all times. They were excellent with keeping watch and giving me anything that was needed!!! I got so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was and how great the food was! We did a buffet style reception...the pasta station was awesome and perfect for all the picky eaters in my family! I had a few kids at the reception and I noticed how some balloons appeared and were bouncing around the room which kept them occupied all night! They truly went above and beyond what was expected! Book this place.... Book it now! I promise you wont regret it! :)

I just got married at Stokesay Castle and it was an absolutely incredible day! I worked with their wedding coordinator, Lauren, for over a year and she put all of our concerns at ease and solved all of our problems from day one. On the day of, everything went off without a hitch. We got our hair and makeup done in the bridal suite upstairs and were immediately taken care of with champagne, coffee, fruit and cheese all morning. The boys were across the venue in the grooms suite enjoying some beer, scotch and snacks. We had an indoor ceremony that went perfectly, and was well coordinated by the staff. Afterwards we enjoyed our cocktail hour and dinner, and everything was delicious. Our cupcakes were incredible. We gave the pastry chef the loose instructions of "cherry blossoms" and he ran with it. Our cupcakes each featured branches and hand-painted cherry blossoms. They were so beautiful. We were so well taken care of and everything was perfect. I can't recommend this venue enough!
