Nothing but class, professionalism and a willingness to make your day feel special - that is what I feel about the venue and staff of the Whitby Castle.
First, they worked with our guest size and budget. Whitby Castle is a place for medium to large weddings however they were easily able to accommodate a wedding of 65 people (more on the small-medium side). The area never felt too big or small and the venue was able to use cocktail tables and other tricks of the trade to fill in the reception and ceremony.
Secondly, they were able to work with our desired menu. Adding and subtracting from their standard menu- they added Golden Crusted Chicken Schnitzel just for us!!! Which was absolutely delicious! My now-husband is Austrian (born and bred) and he was even impressed! They also added a sundae ice cream bar along with a beautiful cake! Which was really good.
Thirdly, the staff was AMAZING! Nice and cordial. The coordinator I was able to work with was Ralph, he was very nice and EFFICIENT! Which I absolutely love, no nonsense and straight to the point, providing advice and guidance when needed as well as suggestions where I didn't even know I needed to make a decision (he must've been doing this for years!) I never felt pushed or coerced into anything but simply guided and helped. My bridal attendant was Katie and she was always very helpful and knew exactly how to assist. She was able to help with my bustle and with the decorations.

Also my husband would like to mention he really appreciated the before ceremony snacks and beers in the suite :)

I was married at the Whitby Castle on November 19, 2016. I can't put into words how wonderful our experience was from our very first meeting until the day of our wedding. Ralph is absolutely amazing and the staff especially, Katie (our bridal attendant) is wonderful. Ralph will guarantee that your wedding is everything you dreamed of and so much more. Ralph will go out of his way to do anything for you that will make your day perfect. Our family and friends keep raving about the Ralph, Katie, the staff, food and ambiance of the castle. The Whitby Castle provides you with the ultimate fairy tale wedding. We absolutely LOVE the castle and would recommend it to anyone looking to book a wedding venue. If I could describe the castle in one word it would be PERFECTION. Thank you so much to Ralph and the entire staff at the Whitby Castle for making our wedding everything we wanted and so so much more!

AMAZING! We had our wedding reception here on October 15, 2016 and it was absolutely perfect! We booked with Linda (who has since left, but was phenomenal) back in April 2015. From the moment we drove on to the property we knew that this is where we would have our reception. To be honest, I was a little fearful after Linda left because it took us a long time to get in touch with someone, but as soon as I got in touch with Ralph I was put at ease. We started working with Ralph about three months out and made sure that sure that he and I were on the same page about things that I had previously discussed with Linda. Ralph was great with getting back to me via email and all of our appointments went smooth. The day of the wedding went as planned and everyone had a blast! Ralph and the staff were great and made sure that everyone had what they needed and had a great time. Even my MC said that working with Ralph was a pleasure. Our bridal attendant, Katie was also great and she made sure that all of my needs were met. She was a pleasure to have around. Our cocktail hour was held outside on the back deck on a beautiful Fall evening with a full moon. Heating lamps were set up in some areas to help with the Fall chill. The ballroom was beautiful and the food exquisite. Our guests are still talking about it and saying that it was truly the best wedding they ever attended. We even got asked if we could do it again and we would totally do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you to everyone at Whitby Castle for making our dreams come true and for executing all of the ideas and details that I envisioned for our perfect day.

There were so many good things about this venue, I don't know where to start! We wanted to find a wedding venue that was sure to wow our guests and after visiting Whitby Castle, we were in love. From the very beginning all the staff was professional and so accommodating. We never heard the word "no" for any of our requests. Our maitre'd Ralph was phenomenal. I think all the planning and the events of the day would have been way more stressful had it not been for Ralph. We had the most flawless wedding day and that was all thanks to Ralph. He was really on top of everything from the guests, to the florist, to the photographers, he managed it all and made it look so effortless. There was not one things we regretted about choosing Whitby Castle. They gave us the wedding of our dreams plus much more. So many guests told me that it was the most fantastic wedding they had ever been to. They loved the large open reception room with all the windows and they raved about the food! If we could do it all over, we wouldn't change a thing! Thank you to all the staff at Whitby Castle who made our wedding day the best day of our lives!

I recently had my wedding at Whitby Castle on August 20th. I could not be happier with the way everything turned out. Ralph was not only professional, but super helpful. I must of emailed him almost every couple of days and he managed to answer me quickly, answer my questions and ease all of my concerns. Everything we wanted, he found a way to work with us. The food was amazing! From cocktail hour stations, to dinner and dessert. Everything was delicious. Guests are calling and telling me it was one of the best weddings they had been to!

My husband and I had our wedding at Whitby Castle August 6th, 2016 and it was truly an incredible, perfect day. The staff at Whitby (especially Ralph) went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests and provided fantastic service to us, our bridal party, and every guest at the wedding.

I have a large Italian family and have grown up in the restaurant industry so food has always been the core of all celebrations - Whitby did not disappoint! The food was excellent and throughly enjoyed by our family and friends.

When looking for a venue, my husband and I wanted something unique and not the typically "wedding factory". At the same time, I wanted a venue where catering was done on site and tables/chairs/linens were all included to make the planning process easier. Whitby was the absolute perfect spot for this (and trust me I looked all over CT and NY!) The castle is a gorgeous backdrop for photos and the ballroom is clean and fresh looking with dark wood floors and tons of light pouring in.

Thank you so much to the staff at Whitby Castle who helped make our day so flawless - you guys work very hard and deserve recognition!

Whitby Castle was absolutely incredible as our wedding venue!! Ralph - our maitre'd - was seriously amazing. He was so attentive and accommodating. On the day of the wedding, he really hustled and worked so hard to ensure everything was to our liking. Anytime we had a question, Ralph came to us immediately and took care or whatever we asked for. He was really a fantastic maitre'd. Additionally, the overall service at Whitby really exceeded our expectations. Not only did we notice that the staff was very efficient and friendly, but so many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with the service. One example of the great attention to detail we noticed was the presentation of the entrees - servers would surround each table at a time and would all place the plates in front of our guests in a synchronized fashion - which was visually impressive as well as a really nice touch. The food was absolutely beyond incredible. My husband and I have very high standards when it comes to food and often eat in fine restaurants. When we tasted the food at our wedding, we were thrilled. Everything was cooked to perfection, and as we walked around to all of our guests' tables we noticed that this was consistent for all of the plates. We had multiple people tell us that the food was the best they have ever had at any wedding. Also, the wedding cake was off the charts. We chose vanilla cake with salted caramel filling, and it was out of this world. All in all, Whitby Castle gave us a PHENOMENAL wedding!!!

As parents of a daughter, you want her wedding to be beautiful and fairytale like. Well look no further than Whitby Castle where her dreams will come true. From beginning to end, starting with the beautiful bridal sweet where she and her wedding party relax and enjoy trays of fruit chesses and champagne while she awaits her special moment. If you choose to have your ceremony here, the beauty of the castle and its surrounding grounds are magical. The food selections offered are plentiful. The choices we made were absolutely delicious, better than any other wedding venue we had been too in the past. Our guests couldn't stop raving about everything, from the cocktail hour to the delicious wedding cake which was made right on the premises. Our thanks to the entire staff, Ralph bracco, operations manager, Sean Mccaw, general manager, jasmine, wedding coordinator, dining room captain Will, and all of the waiter staff that treated us like royalty, and with their organization, made it all come together flawlessly.

We got married at Whitby Castle on June 18th and it was truly a dream wedding. The whole day was perfect! The beautiful bridal and groom suites were so great to have and made our getting ready experience so wonderful. We didn't have to worry about a thing, as the incredible staff made sure we were taken care of with food, drinks, and had everything under control with perfect timing. The ceremony was breathtaking! Walking out from the willow tree as my grand entrance, along with our bridal party, was absolutely magical. The staff directed everything with ease and paid attention to every detail. Our reception was so great. Aside from the gorgeous venue, we really can't say enough about the staff members. In particular, Ralph and Will were amazing!!! Every single staff member was wonderful, and they worked closely with us that day to ensure we were happy and taken care of every single step of the way. We really could not be more impressed with this venue and the staff. It was everything we could have ever dreamed of and more!!! We can't wait to return for dinner and reminisce about our magical day. THANK YOU to everyone at Whitby for making our wedding a dream come true.
