Many of the couples that have married at Leeds Castle over the past two years have kindly told us their story. Here is one of them:
Michelle & Lorenzo Carpente
What was it about Leeds Castle that made you choose to have your wedding here?
Bride: We decided to get married at Leeds Castle because of the atmosphere, the absolute peace and quiet, the amazing view as well.
Groom: My wife introduced to me Leeds Castle and I fell in love with it too.
Is there a special memory that stands out about being at Leeds Castle (beyond getting married of course!)?
Bride: I went to Leeds Castle when I was 3 years old with my parents. When we told them that we were getting married at Leeds Castle they couldn’t believe it, it was a big coincidence!
Moreover, I went to Leeds Castle three years before my wedding day with my friends, just as a tourist. I saw a bride with her bridesmaid getting some pictures taken outside the castle. So, I told my friend, ‘If I ever get married, I will get married at Leeds Castle.’ The funny thing was that three years ago I was single!
Groom: When we first met Sophie Welsh, the manager of the events at Leeds Castle that was the beginning of our “adventure.”
What was your favourite part of the planning and the day itself?
Bride: The Ceremony and my preparation, of course.
Groom: When I saw my wife coming with her father to join me.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms still planning their day?
Bride: To trust all the people who work there because they will think about everything, you will be guided from your preparation until your departure in a perfect way.
Groom: It is not necessary to give advice to brides and grooms who want to get married at Leeds Castle because everything was absolutely perfect thanks to all the people who work there.
