Know that the staff at the castle are always willing to do or work with you on making your dream wedding come true. This does mean that although you've had conversations with them about your plans it is still always best to put it in writing so everyone knows. Even the simplest details help them accommodate all your needs. This is an old and unique venue so if you're looking for a gorgeous space this is it but don't always expect everything to be perfectly maintained or updated. That's part of its charm. It's a huge place to maintain and keep nice and they do their best but just like any home there's always a list I'm sure. The food is good, and Francois is a great chef. Talk to him and tell him what you do and don't like and he'll work with you. Enjoy the day and the views surrounding you and it'll be a fairy tale like ours was.
It is the most beautiful and elegant of Venues, it is a diamond in the ruff, not to mention fit into our budget. The Staff and Event coordinator were amazing, they were a one stop shop. Anything that we did need they were more than helpful to accommodate.
We held our reception at Henderson Castle in June and it was perfect from arrival to departure. Our 70 guests were welcomed with a cocktail hour: Champagne, fruit punch and hors d'oeuvres. This was followed by a four course dinner (salad, soup, entree, desert) - all courses were excellent and we received much positive feedback from our guests. The cake cutting was done very professionally by Francois Moyet and his assistant and was served as desert. Francois and his staff were the anchor for the event: Always of help and attentive but in the background (e.g. vase for my bridal bouquet). Francois supported the positive vibrations of our wedding with his friendly and patient character.
The wedding party stayed in the seven guests rooms at Henderson Castle. After our guests had left, we switched to the lounge room and enjoyed talking to everybody before we went to bed late. The rooms are absolutely clean and the quality of the bedsheets made it a comfortable night. We had the "Italian Room" and were woken up by the sun tickling our noses in the morning. Staying in these unique rooms makes you feel like you traveled back in time to a luxurious 19th century! It's a one-of-a-kind experience!
During breakfast we were surprised by a violin player who entertained the guests while we unwrapped our presents.
Five stars because it was a perfect wedding for us in a dream location!
we could not have picked a better place to be married than the Henderson castle. The uniqe expiriance of being able to have my family and friends stay the night and have breakfast together in the morning was priceless. The castle and the property are gorgeous and the staff was beyond helpful and inviting. we rented out the whole castle for 24 hours. we were marrided in the court yard outside followed by photos. while we finished our photos our guest went inside for a drink and orderves before we all sat down to a very delicious 7 course dinner. we finshed our evening dancing in the ballroom and migeling on the roof top. It was magical. I would recommend the Henderson Castle to anyone looking to be married or hold an event .
A wonderful place for your wedding, or other special event, and they do an awesome job in handling all the details. You will not be disappointed. www.floralcreationsbysharon.net
