Gay Castle Weddings

Filed under Castle Weddings | No Comments

Gay Castle Weddings are becoming more and more popular in light of recent legislative reforms.   Blackwater Castle is an ideal venue for a gay Castle Wedding.   There is no formula at Blackwater Castle – guests are encouraged to view the venue as a blank canvas upon which to paint their version of what the perfect wedding should be.


Gay Castle weddings are that bit different –  the location should also reflect that! Blackwater Castle is fully approved as a location for civil ceremonies and has hosted countless unique weddings over the past 5 years.  The policy of Sheila & Patrick Nordstrom, who run the Castle on behalf of the Nordstrom Family Trust, is to allow guests to have free reign in designing a unique event to reflect the personalities and requirements of the couple.   Couples can organise their own ceremony, timetable, and  catering arrangements and Patrick will be on hand to assist in the planning.  Have a look at our Castle Weddings home page for full details as to how gay Castle weddings work at Blackwater Castle.  With 6 reception rooms and 9 suites in the Castle, along with additional accomodation (sleeping 47) in the Courtyard, a memorable event for all involved will be a gay Castle Wedding!
