Brides-to-be flocked to Goodwood House for a luxury wedding event to showcase the Brides Top 100 Venue in its full glory.

Goodwood House is a great paragon of English heritage and the ideal venue for a wedding bursting with character and set in acres of breath-taking countryside. Brides readers were invited to explore the house and all its fascinations and enchantments, while feasting on organically grown delicacies from the Goodwood kitchen and filling their glasses with champagne. 

The reception hall, ceremony room and main ballroom were all dressed to perfection, to provide an invaluable insight into what a wedding at Goodwood would entail. After completing the tour of the house and grounds, readers took their seats in the main ballroom in preparation for a catwalk to showcase the impeccable creations of Caroline Castigliano's evening and bridal collection.

The striking contrast between the crisp, white lace of the bridal gowns and the warm, crimson walls of the ballroom was a sight to behold. The dramatic runway looks with were finished with bewitching makeup by Sophie McMullan and glamourous, bouncy curls by hair-gurus, SHOW Beauty.

One-to-one consultations with the industry experts took place after the show, with guests taking the opportunity to talk dress designs with Caroline Castigliano herself. All-in-all the event provided the perfect opportunity to get a taste of a what beautifully unique wedding at Goodwood House would be. The classic, structured designs of Caroline Castigliano's dresses, aligned with the historical grandeur of Goodwood House was a rare combination and we loved the day from start to finish.
