Why Rowton Castle is Perfect All Year Round

Why Rowton Castle is Perfect All Year Round | CHWV

If you’re looking for an amazing wedding venue in Shropshire, we think you’ll love Rowton Castle.

For a setting steeped in traditional grandeur and beauty, Rowton Castle is an excellent choice. This magnificent castle is easily one of the finest wedding venues in Shropshire and sits in a picturesque, rural location, not far from Shrewsbury and the Midlands and close to the Welsh border. It's a truly unforgettable place to tie the knot and, with so much to offer couples on their wedding day, we decided to take a closer look at what makes Rowton Castle ideal whatever time of year.


During spring, nature wakes up and the castle grounds burst into life. Snowdrops and daffodils add wonderful pockets of colour across the lush green gardens, which provides a stunning backdrop for wedding photos and a beautiful space to enjoy the rural setting with your guests. The Cardeston Suite boasts elegant, patterned wallpaper and plenty of light through the large windows, making it perfect for spring colour schemes and decorations, and a delightful place to tie the knot. Make sure you take the time to explore the magical woodland and hidden pools to enjoy a few moments alone together.

Summer gives an opportunity for couples to take advantage of one the features of Rowton Castle that makes it so unique and special; the Linden Belvedere. This breathtaking setting within the grounds is an exquisite spot to tie the knot al fresco and is like nothing else around. The word ‘belvedere' means a structure commanding a fine view and, with the magnificent castle behind you and the impressive woodland in front, there couldn't be a more fitting name. It's a truly romantic and unforgettable way to exchange your vows, and there's no better way to make the most of the British summertime. You can extend the outdoor celebrations for as long as you like, with a drinks reception and canapes on the lawn, and maybe even a spot of croquet too!

During the autumn months, the grounds of this grand castle wedding venue are awash with stunning golds, reds and ambers. It provides an incredible backdrop for seasonal wedding photos and a wonderful view from the rooms of the house. The Georgian Dining Room is a delightfully cosy setting for an intimate wedding ceremony, which is ideal for those chillier autumn days. Decorated in a classical, 18th-century style, complete with gilded and painted panelling, your guests will love witnessing your ceremony with views of the changing trees through the windows behind you.

A towering, twinkling Christmas tree takes pride of place at the castle entrance, and you and your guests can enjoy mulled cider and mince pies while taking in all the stunning Christmas decorations. Reaching from the manicured rear lawns all the way through the castle to the Bridal Suite, they are truly a sight to behold.
