We had many appointments with different venues but cancelled them all when we visited Dunafon Castle. It is absolutely enchanting and an absolutely wonderful venue. Annie is simply amazing and a joy to work with. I would call her the master of the castle and its ceremonies. She was very helpful and accommodating with everything and her calm and sweet demeanor just helped ease the normal wedding stresses. You definitely do not need a wedding planner when you work with professionals like Annie. The owner of Dunafon is also an interesting and amazing gentleman who is very charitable and kind. The vibe of the whole place along with its owner and Annie were extremely spiritual which is exactly the type of feeling we felt the day of our wedding and our guests also felt equally enchanted.

Where do I begin? Annie, the venue contact/liaison/planner was amazing. She had everyone and everything lined out the day of our wedding. She had everyone marching to the same drum. She was sometimes hard to get in contact with but I believe it is because there is bad reception at the venue. The venue itself was exquisite, beautiful landscape, perfect weather. Our guests were in awe and we were so excited that the big day came. If you have the opportunity, I promise you the cost is worth it.

Our wedding at the Dunafon Castle in Colorado was awesome! Since we had a renaissance theme, there was no question that a castle would be our choice. After touring the grounds and meeting with Annie, the coordinator, we fell in love with the place! The grounds are amazing, with plenty of space to roam and loose yourself in the fantasy of it all. Our photographer had so many good locations to take photos that we nearly spent 2 hours doing so! They say it is bad luck to have rain on your wedding day, well we did, and it made the setting all that more magical. Since the venue includes a huge covered dining and dancing area, we were dry and happy. Had it been dry, there was to be rooftop dancing, yet with so many places to explore, inside and out, there was no lack of entertainment. The staff kept the fires burning hot and any who found themselves even slightly damp, soon was dry and smiling. Between Annie and Ruth, all of our guests were well cared for and perfectly content at the end of the evening. As far as the decoration, there was little need to add anything as the grounds are well maintained. We brought centerpieces, moss, lace to drape over the bridge and a few miscellaneous flower arrangements. It truly was a fantasy come to life!

Everything that I ever imagined my Fairy Tale Wedding would be came true with the Dunafon Castle. Every guest at my wedding continues to talk about how gorgeous the venue was! I could not imagine any thing more perfect. Annie did an amazing job communicating with me down to every detail what was going to happen so I did not have to stress one minute on my wedding day! Highly recommend this Venue, it is so unique... not even the knot has it on their vendor list!!

Location, location, location - Dunafon Castle is in such a gorgeous property! It was the site of our daughter's wedding and we could not have been more pleased with our choice.

First and foremost, Annie, the coordinator at Dunafon Castle is fantastic! From the time we toured the property until the end of the reception, Annie was always available to us. She was so well organized and so gracious. On the day of the wedding, she coordinated with all the vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly. We did not have to worry about anything.

Thank you Annie for everything!

This was the most amazing place to have a wedding. Our guests loved it and comments included "This was the most beautiful wedding I've been to." "I didn't even feel like I was in Colorado. I felt like I was on a movie set in England." Annie, the event coordinator was amazing to work with. This is truly a hidden gem and I would recommend to anyone looking for a unique venue.

First of all, Dunafon Castle is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and was the perfect setting for our wedding. Everyone that I've spoken to that attended our wedding said it was the most beautiful venue that they had ever seen for a wedding and I couldn't agree more. The ponds, the gazebo, the water wheel, the tent...everything was exactly how we wanted it to look. I couldn't be more happy with how beautiful the castle and its grounds are.

Secondly, the castle wedding coordinators, Annie and Lindsey, were so helpful and informative. We had had the venue booked for over a year prior to the wedding and had communicated solely with Annie up until our final walk-through which was a month before the wedding. At the walk--through, Annie told us that she wouldn't be the one to help at the wedding but it would be Lindsey instead. We had never met Lindsey before this so I have to say I was very concerned and worried. But it turned out that I had no reason to be worried because Lindsey turned out to be SUCH a great help on the day of the wedding. She kept things running as smoothly as she could (for how hectic our wedding was, this was quite the feat) and she was a lifesaver several times including when she helped me with my bustle which I had completely forgotten how to do. I am so thankful that she was there to help us out.

Really, the only thing that I would change about the castle is the time allowed for us to set up. No one was allowed at the castle until 3pm (our ceremony was at 5:30pm) so we had very limited time for set up so there were many things that I worked very hard on but didn't get set up because we were so rushed on time. I admit some of this may have been my fault because I severely underestimated the time needed for set up for some of my DIY projects but it still would've been WAY less stressful if we could've gone in earlier in the day to set-up.

Overall, I give Dunafon Castle a huge two thumbs up and I woudln't have chosen a different place to have our wedding. It was absolutely beautiful.

This is the most magical and romantic venue, that is truly a hidden treasure. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place for our wedding. And our event coordinator, Annie, made the day go by without one single flaw or mishap.

This is easily one of my favorite details of my wedding day!
