Tessa, from Penn Creatives, was our florist – and it was the best decision we’ve ever made. We talked to a few local florists initially, but when we started discussing it with Tessa we knew she really got our vision and was the right person. We wanted what Tessa termed “a bright tropical explosion,” and worked closely with Tessa who bought this to life and really went above and beyond. The result was spectacular, I’ve never seen anything like it. The flowers really made the day.

We also felt so at ease with the team at The Penn, Hannah and Tessa were a perfect team. They took care of all the behind the scenes organisation, not just on the day, but throughout the whole planning journey. We had multiple meetings and visits to the Castle which put us at ease every time.

When I saw Pennsylvania Castle for the first time, I instantly knew it was our venue. Not only did it have a stunning castle and a view of the sea, they had beautifully modern additional accommodation built into the Cliff. The entire estate completely exceeded all our expectations and not to mention the Penn team, who were so accommodating and really felt like family.

Kim & Ette

It was honestly the best day of our lives, everything was amazing, everybody had a great time, and there wasn't anything we would change - not even the weather. It was just fantastic, thanks in large part to yourself. We trusted you from the start and you pulled it out of the bag
