Colin and Rachel win their dream wedding at Pentillie Castle!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce the winners of our ‘Win a Wedding’ competition which took place at the Pentillie Castle Wedding Fair Sunday 10th February 2019!

With 41 couples entering to be in with a chance of winning their special day at Pentillie including suppliers – the draw took place at 3.30pm where entrants, visitors and exhibitors gathered round in anticipation! Sammie Coryton, owner of Pentillie Castle took to the microphone – after thanking everyone for such a fabulous day, Sammie dipped her hand into the box of entries, had a good mix up and pulled out the winners… Colin May and Rachel Franklin!

Tears almost immediately started flowing from the Pentillie Weddings team as they already knew of Colin and Rachel and how much they wanted their dream wedding at Pentillie, as they had been to the Castle the very day before to have an appointment with Lisa, our wedding coordinator enquiring about Pentillie as their wedding venue. They returned to the wedding fair the very next day to try their luck at winning the wedding of their dreams… Who knew that 24 hours later their dreams would become reality!

Colin and Rachel had left the event just 15 minutes before we announced the winners – with visitors and exhibitors gathered round in anticipation we gave them a call and put them on loud speaker to tell them the good news – there was disbelief, a bit of silence and then some very excited and emotional cheers from the couple as well as the crowd! We asked them if they could turn round and come back which they did immediately!
