Rowton Castle Hotel

Shropshire’s premier wedding venue, Rowton Castle.

A castle has stood in the grounds at Rowton for nearly 800 years.

A medieval castle stood on this site until Prince Llewellyn and the marauding Welsh destroyed it in 1463.The present castle was built for the pricey sum of £ 1000 in 1669 and was once the home of Baron Rowton who was Prime Minister Disraeli’s secretary in late 19th Century. In 1941 it became the home of the Royal School for the blind, the most famous of it’s students being David Blunkett, Minister of Education, but unfortunately after the college moved in 1978 the Castle fell into ruins. The present day castle has been totally refurbished and transformed into a prestigious hotel, which has the warmth, charm and ambiance of a Country House.

The castle boasts nineteen individually designed bedrooms, many with antique four poster beds. Each room has a fully equipped bathroom with a bath and shower and such thoughtful extras as trouser press, mineral water and excellent beverage making facilities.

Personal service and attention to detail are hallmarks of Rowton Castle’s excellent reputation and this is ably demonstrated in the hotel’s award-winning Cedar Restaurant. Oak panelling, velvet armchairs and intimate lighting are a perfect backdrop to this fine dining experience.

The hotel provides excellent conference facilities for both day and residential courses. There are three meeting rooms and for a special event the Castle can be booked in its entirety.

Where better to celebrate your marriage than in the romantic atmosphere of a fairytale castle set in picturesque gardens. Rowton is the ideal venue for your most important day. Please telephone the hotel to arrange a visit to discuss your exact requirements.

Wedding and Portrait Photography in Shropshire, from Biggs Photography

Biggs Photography is a bespoke photography service, concentrating mainly in the area of wedding and portrait photography.

Located in Shropshire, although we are prepared to travel further afield.

Film photography is our forte. Capturing the moment, composing and beautifying the scene using the natural light available, and preserving it forever in print.

Another photographer… Why do we feel we’re different?
Photographers for weddings usually just capture the moment. Because our service is fresh and contemporary, we like to get involved in the whole wedding process.

Portrait photographers are cashing in these days in being wacky and creative. Gone are the days of marble backdrops and cliched front-on group pictures. Our new and vibrant style sets us above the average service.

Custom photography studio needed? No problems… we are developing a new studio on-site as we speak.

Photographers cost the earth! How expensive are you?
Your wedding bill need not go through the roof! Surprisingly, we are very competitive. You get our skill, experience, expertise and service at an affordable price. PlusǃÓwhen we’re done, the pictures are yours, supplied on a media of your choice to facilitate easy reprints in the future. Other photographers tend to keep hold of the negatives and hold you to ransom over them!
