The Gilstrap is a hidden gem in the middle of the beautiful market town of Newark.
Nestling on the banks of the River Trent, the rear of this historic building shares its grounds with Newark Castle, making it perfect for photographs.
It is time to rethink your opinion of a Registration Office and consider this fairytale setting in Newark, UK.
Mark Pugh said: “You couldn’t wish for a wedding ceremony venue with such beautiful views and access to facilities.
The Gilstrap has it all, two rooms that cater to most sizes of ceremony, incredible historic architecture, and the rear of the building opens out onto the grounds of Newark Castle, making it perfect for formal, and not so formal photographs.
This stunning venue is also ideal if you would like to book my 'hourly photography' option which is new this year and can also be purchased in blocks of three hours.
Across the road to the front of The Gilstrap is the bustling town centre of Newark, the European centre for antiques, with its fabulous restaurants which line the banks of the River Trent.
Newark also benefits by sitting on the A1, allowing easy access to the rest of the United Kingdom."
This wonderful historic building has to be viewed and should be on your ‘must see’ list.
We cannot recommend The Gilstrap highly enough"
If you’ve always imagined yourself in that fairytale wedding then look no further than The Gilstrap, a romantic venue located within the grounds of Newark castle.
The Victorian Grade II listed building has been refurbished to create two luxury ceremony rooms. The prestigious Salvin Suite, which accommodates up to 100 guests, is an opulent room with high ceilings, a wealth of original features and large stained glass windows.
The more intimate Library Room is no less impressive and also boasts charming features and historic character. With seating for up to 20 people, this is a popular choice for smaller wedding parties.
Following the ceremony, the wedding party and guests are able to move out to the beautiful Victorian ornamental garden area at the rear of The Gilstrap for photographs. The grounds feature a bandstand and offer stunning views of Newark Castle.
