We recently had the pleasure of welcoming Joanna Lumley to the Castle as part of her new show (‘Home Sweet Home’) which aired in the spring of 2021. But this wasn’t just a random coincidence that Joanna chose to film with us – Lumley Castle is actually the place from which her family name is taken.
If you’re wishing to follow in Joanna’s footsteps book to day and plan to look Absolutely Fabulous!
No More Wedding Deposits!
From April 1st 2021 we’re making changes around how our wonderful couples fund their weddings at Lumley. Historically to book a wedding couples would have had to pay a sizable deposit. From April 2021 we’ll be moving onto simple and affordable payment plans with monthly payments by Direct Debit from the date of booking to the month before your big day.
So rather than maybe securing your booking with a potential £2000 deposit, it could from April 2021 be as little as £200.
We love weddings at Lumley Castle and your big day is what we specialise in.
If we can make getting married easier for you, why wouldn’t we?
