We got married at Clearwell Castle on the 14th January 2017! We fell in love with the place on our first visit and booked it there and then. The photos really dont do it justice, there are so many beautiful parts of the Castle to make your photographs extra special. I can't praise the staff enough. From the correspondence up to the day, to the day itself - they were all amazing.
