Find Castle Wedding Locations Throughout The Old World
Castle wedding locations are easy enough to find when you search on the Internet, but this does not necessarily mean that they are going to be easy to get to or reach. If you live in North America, you will need to find a way to travel to the old world to experience the hospitality which a medieval castle can offer. Most of them are found in Europe, with the British Isles being the obvious choice as the language, political system and culture will be familiar to those visiting from across the Atlantic.
England is a popular location for castle weddings, and it has many advantages for the American traveler. Flights into the airports surrounding London are frequent and there are often discounts of you book at the right time. Great Britain does not impose any visa requirements upon American visitors, so arranging a trip should be quick and easy. The castles themselves are found throughout England, including in the south east only a short journey away from London. Hedingham Castle in Essex is one which regularly hosts weddings and civil ceremonies,and it is easy to reach from London or the airport at Stansted.
The northern part of England and the Borders region of Scotland also have many castles which are open to the tourist public and which can be used as wedding venues. The climate in these regions is colder and generally more unsettled than the south, although the climate is always unpredictable in the British Isles. The Border region has one of the most famous venues of all for wedding ceremonies, that being Gretna Green, where thousands of eloping couples have crossed the border into Scotland so that they could be married in secret without being subject to English laws or the wrath of their families. There is a castle very close to Gretna Green, and that is Comlongon Castle.
The Highlands of Scotland have the feel of a completely different country from the Border region, but they also boast some ideal castle wedding locations. When planning a trip to the Highlands you need to be mindful of the fact that this is the least densely populated area of the United Kingdom and that transportation routes and facilities are sparse to say the least. Ackergill Tower is one Scottish castle resort which has all of the benefits of a rural location, such as the spectacular views of the sea and surrounding countryside, but which is also accessible as it is relatively close to the Scotrail line.
Wales also has its share of castles which date back to the medieval times, and these have suffered through the years from the fact that Wales itself has no sovereign government to oversee the interests of historical buildings. Now that there is a Welsh Assembly there is more which can be done, but the trust who own the castles have been quick to take advantage of the opportunity offered by the expansion of the wedding industry. There are also castles in Ireland both sides of the border, which may be a significant attraction for Americans with Irish ancestry.
These castle wedding locations are geared up to take maximum advantage of a growing market in non-traditional weddings, and their advertising and web presence makes them easy to find. In the past, booking any kind of foreign trip was difficult, but now you can just log on to the Internet and see for yourself how different castles are providing this service. The competition is now so strong that every castle has been forced to develop its own fully illustrated site to be able to compete for business. This makes it easy to compare different castle wedding locations.Written by Jeremiah Baden
