  • We were lucky enough to work with the team at Whitby Castle for our wedding this August! Courtney was so responsive from the moment we booked until the months prior, answering every question we had and putting us at ease! In the weeks closer to our wedding, we worked with Ralph who was also very responsive and eager to help us in any way we needed! The day of our wedding went so well and Ralph was there to check in on us throughout, ensuring that our timeline was met and that we were happy with how everything was going! The food, service, and professionalism at Whitby Castle are 10/10!

  • We had our wedding on 7/20/19 and it was really the best day ever. PROS: -Ralph was very detailed oriented and ran the show seamlessly. We had a 20+ bridal party and he managed to keep everyone in line and organized from start to finish. - Food was to die for - since our wedding we have gotten a lot of feedback about how remarkable the food was, everyone says it felt like 5 star restaurant food rather than wedding food - You get a lot for your money, we were narrowed down to three venues, Whitby was about 10$ more a person, however it was worth it. The cocktail hour and what is included is like an entire meal in addition to the meal. - Service is amazing, every staff member is knowledgable on what to do, they are respectful and timely - Timing - our entire wedding 200+ people were all served within a 25 minute period, majority were served within 15 minutes. They can whip up seriously good food within short amount of time - Ceremony option - inside/outside up to the last minute. We ende... Read more

  • This past weekend we held our wedding at Whitby Castle. To say that it was perfect is and understatement! The whole entire staff was friendly, helpful, and on top of everything this entire night. Ralph was a pleasure to work with and made sure to guide us through the night with a huge smile! Meagan the bridal attendant was an angel who came baring champagne at all the right times 🤣 The cocktail hour food and main entree was out of this world! All of our guests raved about it 😁 I've been to many halls and my husband and I both worked in hospitality for years .... so when we say it was a DREAM wedding from start to finish we mean it! If you are planning a wedding you better go check this place out! Thank you to the entire staff for making our special night go as smooth as ever !!

  • The minute we drove up to the Castle, we knew that this was our venue. The scenery and setting are gorgeous, the food (and there's so much of it!) is spectacular, and the people are friendly and helpful. Leading up to the wedding day, Courtney and then Ralph were always available to answer questions and make our planning easier. Then, on the wedding day, all that planning paid off and everything was just perfect. Ralph was amazing - making sure we kept close enough to schedule and that nothing was missed (and keeping our anxious mothers sane!). Just seeing him around calmed our nerves because we knew he was on it! The rest of the staff was just amazing - we can't say enough about how attentive and friendly everyone was. And our guests are still raving about the food and how gorgeous the venue was. If you are trying to decide on a venue, rest assured that you cannot go wrong with Whitby Castle! They really do take care of everything - including you - so you can relax and enjoy your spec... Read more

  • Whitby castle had everything a couple would need for a perfect wedding. The grounds are well maintained and the halls are perfect for reception as well as dancing. We got excellent pictures on the terrace with the views of the golf course and the Sound. The food was exceptional - many choices and all delicious. Our guests have been delighted and so were we. The staff was helpful and made the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception run smoothly.

  • My husband and I agreed when we showed up to the Whitby Castle that we wouldn't sign a contract until we had been to a few other places. That all went out the window as soon as we walked in. We were both in awe not only because of the outside appearance but because of the ballroom and layout of the castle. We knew almost immediately that this was going to be our wedding venue. Courtney was extremely helpful and gave us all the information that we needed. She walked us through every single aspect of our planning and made sure that we were aware of payment dates and options. She was friendly and accommodating. Once our wedding day approached, we met our Maitre' D, Ralph. He took over helping us understand what was to be expected and what we needed to do in order to prepare for our wedding day. He was available for questions and concerns and made sure that everyone was on the same page. His kindhearted nature made both me and my husband comfortable throughout the entire experience. We wer... Read more

  • From the moment we met with Courtney Baloyi, we knew this was the venue meant for our wedding. Whitby provides the kind of understated elegance that leaves guests in awe as they enter the front drive. It happened to Kevin and I each time we arrived in preparation for our big day. As we got closer and began working with Ralph Bracco, the excitement only increased. He made sure everything that night was executed flawlessly with the entire team. The food, service, bar, valets, everything - it was all perfect. Our wedding was more than we could've dreamed...thanks to the team at Whitby Castle. xo

  • My husband and I got married at Whitby Castle this past weekend and all we can say is RALPH IS THE BEST. From the first meeting with Ralph to our wedding day he made sure everything ran smoothly and that we were taken care of. Everyone told us we wouldn't eat at our own wedding but Ralph went out of his way to make sure we had a moment to eat in between everything. The whole staff was extremely accommodating from beginning to end we didn't hear a single bad remark. The venue was set up beautifully and it was almost like the staff was one step ahead of us the entire time making sure every aspect of the night was perfect. We can't even count the number of guests who told us how beautiful the venue was. You will not regret having your wedding at Whitby, Ralph and the entire staff are the best of the best. Thank you!!

  • We got married at Whitby Castle in November of 2018. The castle and the grounds are amazing. Thru the whole process the staff was wonderful. From the day we booked until the wedding was over they worked to make sure everything was perfect. We used a lot of our own vendors and they were very accommodating and helpful. The food was amazing and the bar service was applauded. And for every problem that came up. And for every last minute change, there was Ralph. He took everything we wanted to do and helped turn it into a wedding. Then he was there to make sure we stayed on schedule and to do all of it. Thank you to all of the staff who helped make this such a special and memorable event.

  • Where do I begin?? From the moment we stepped foot into the castle we were welcomed with kindness and excellent customer service. Whitby was the first venue that we looked at before booking our wedding, and we only looked at two other venues before going straight back to the castle to leave our deposit and book our wedding date. Besides stating the obvious that the castle and the grounds are beautiful, the staff at Whitby Castle is what makes the venue so wonderful. The first person that we worked with was Courtney- she took her time showing us the grounds and the venue and spent quite some time talking over details with us, and determining what we wanted our wedding day/night to be like. She never made me feel like I was "just a number", always made me feel comfortable asking as many questions as necessary, and made me feel confident that all of our wedding wants and needs were going to be met. The next person that we were introduced to was Will. Will not only makes a great cocktail, ... Read more

  • I was recently married at the Whitby Castle, they did an amazing job! Our guest we're WOW'd from the beginning when they pulled in the driveway to the castle and amazing back drop. We were married outside on the lawn at dusk, the weather was perfect and the lighting on the castle. Our guests kept talking about the amount of food and top notch service from the staff. Ralph did an amazing job! From our first meeting he was on top of all the little details and had amazing suggestions. We are extremely happy we picked the Whitby Castle, we couldn't have asked for a better wedding. We can't thank Ralph and the whole staff on the event they put on for us. Thank you!

  • We found Whitby by accident attending one of their expos – what a blessing!! Everything at Whitby from the day we walked in to the night of our reception was 5 stars! While planning our wedding, we relied heavily on others’ reviews. So, to help others, we tried to make our reviews as details as possible. For the “Too Long Didn’t Read” crowd – everything at Whitby was amazing, classy, and 5 stars. We couldn’t be more thankful to Sean and Ralph for their unwavering commitment to seeing and executing on our vision! Planning: Throughout our 3 (yes, 3) years of planning our wedding, Sean and the rest of the Whitby coordinators were incredible. Everyone was flexible, accommodating, and eager to understand just what we wanted in a wedding reception. They were exceptionally willing to (and did…) tailor any aspect of our reception, from the menu to timeline to logistical formatting. If there’s something you want, but don’t see in their standard packages, ask. Chances are, ... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at Whitby Castle on 10/21/18 and perfect isn't even a strong enough word to describe it! Ralph made sure that every detail was exactly as we requested, the staff was friendly and always smiling, the food was incredible, the drinks were strong and atmosphere was ideal! The weather was a little cold, but they stayed with our outdoor plan and I cannot thank them enough for all the set-up and hiding me before my reveal to my future husband. Our guests have not stopped raving about the views and venue, and I would recommend Whitby Castle to anyone that wants a one-of-a-kind wedding experience!

  • Whitby Castle is stunning, it is where the wedding of your dreams comes to life. During the day the castle is beautiful and at night it is gorgeous, the interior comes to life with dimmed lights and the warm tones of the room. It honestly was the most beautiful set up I have ever seen and it really made our special day feel magical. The food was outstanding and exceeded our expectations. So, I give Whitby Castle as a venue a 5-star rating. I also thought the set up process was quite seamless and that Nicki and Courtney are A plus employees and fantastic at their jobs. They answered all our questions immediately and provided all the information we could ever ask for. They were an honest pleasure to work with and made planning feel very easy and painless. Now, there were definitely some major mishaps the day of our wedding that added a large amount of stress to an already stressful day. 1. We signed a contract and paid to have entrance to the castle at 8 AM to begin getting ready in the ... Read more

  • Beautiful Venue and amazing staff who make your special day go perfectly! Ralph made me feel so comfortable and made sure everything went perfectly, you don’t need a planner with Ralph around! I wasn’t looking for a traditional venue set up that felt cookie cutter but Whitby really did make my day unique and let me have so much freedom ! If you have the option rent the rooms upstairs to get ready in! Everything from pre day, ceremony, cocktail and reception was PERFECT!
