Picton Castle has been the historic home of the Philipps’ family who are direct descendents of Sir John Wogan who built the Castle over 850 years ago. Picton Castle is open all year round for weddings and corporate events and during the summer there are guided tours of the Castle which still retains much of its original character. The 40 acres of gardens are open to the public. Part of the Royal Horticultural Society Regional Garden Scheme they are home to a feast of Rhododendrons, Embothrium and Eucryphia.
The Woodland Gardens burst with colour during the spring with blankets of wild flowers blended with beautiful shrubs from all corners of the world. In the summer the restored walled garden with its enchanting fountain and fernery is a haven of tranquillity.
The art gallery is host to a variety of artist exhibitions and the events schedule is a popular feature of the Picton Castle calendar with garden lectures, open air theatre and family days being just some of the fun events on offer.
Picton Castle provides the perfect setting for a fairy tale wedding day with its fine entrance gates and long carriage drive sweeping up to the Castle forecourt. Set in 40 acres of stunning woodland gardens there is a beautifully restored walled garden and fountain, providing an enchanting atmosphere for your special day.
If you are getting married and are looking for your wedding to be captured in a creative relaxed fashion, we would love to hear from you.
