Peckforton Castle owner, Chris Naylor, was very excited about the relaunch event and certainly pulled out all of the stops to show that his luxury venue is back and better than ever…
We arrived at the castles main gates to be greeted by friendly security, requesting names for the guestlist, to which we was promptly directed to the main entrance. Upon arrival a gentleman opened the car door, sheltered us with an umbrella and escorted us down the red carpet, through the doors.
Luxury hit us straight away – along with a flute of bubbly! We was snapped in the foyer infront of the staircase and warmly introduced to the castles main function rooms. “Wow” was the only words we could slip out before taking another sip of champers. Absolutely fabulously decorated and all the stops were pulled-out to make the desired impression.
Each room was star-studded and manned with hosts presenting light snacks and top-up of champaign. Before we could absorb the magic, soul star Lemar and the Scottish singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé took over the stage with fabulous performances in an intimate, luxury ambience that set the place on fire (not literally).
The celebrities were very approachable and open to conversation. Celebs such as the Coronation Street cast, Michelle Keegan, Ryan Thomas, Brooke Vincent, Football star John Barnes, Tomasz Kuszczak, Manchester’s own George Sampson; to name a few.
It was most certainly a night to remember. I have no plans to get married in the near future but when I do, this romantic, glitzy venue will be the venue. Sure, it’ll be expensive but it’s a dream venue – your dream car wouldn’t be a Ford Mondeo would it.
