Best day of our lives

My husband and I have picked the Dartmouth House for our wedding, and it was the best day of our lives. The whole Dartmouth House team was a pleasure to work with. Everything was perfectly organised, and they thought of every small detail. The food was very delicious, and of course the venue itself was breathtakingly beautiful. I still cannot stop thinking about the gorgeous staircase, long drawing room and courtyard. All of our guests have told us throughout the whole day how much they were in love with the venue. The team has perfectly prepared each room, and announced our entrance before entering each area. This made the experience even more magical. We will forever remember this day and would like to thank the incredible Dartmouth House Team.

Winter Wedding at Dartmouth House

We hosted our wedding last weekend at Dartmouth House. Sophie and the team were an absolute dream to work with. They were super detail oriented and helped to organise every moment of the day, which went perfectly. The food from the cater was great and we received so many compliments from friends and family on the venue and dinner choices. We chose to upgrade wine selections and were super happy we did. The only area that was slightly disappointing were the canapés as we didn't feel this was a great value for money. While they were tasty they were quit small (we chose 4 canapes x 80 guests) and would recommend brining in additional appetisers if you are planning to do a cocktail hour with food before dinner. Otherwise the food and wine were fantastic.

Sophie was so incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. She allowed us to do a few site visits with vendors to ensure everything on the day would be perfect. Thank you again for all of your help! Would highly recommend this venue.

Dartmouth House - Wedding Venue of Dreams

Dartmouth House was a perfect choice for our wedding. Not only was it absolutely stunning, but the people were an absolute pleasure to work with.

They were incredible with all of our COVID delays - so flexible and understanding. Despite much hardship as we had to move our date several times from 2020, they stuck with us along the way.

The Dartmouth House team was really easy to work with. I did not have a wedding planner, so having so much in-house was extremely helpful for me. They were also very accommodating for any site visits or walk-throughs I needed to do with our suppliers.

They brought a sense of calm and confidence throughout the planning and execution. Much needed for a bride who is stressed about a lot of things!

Thank you Dartmouth House!

Terrible Service

Beautiful venue but unfortunately we were provided with inaccurate information about the costings prior to viewing the venue. We felt completely let down by the sales & marketing executive, Sophie and there was no recognition of how they might attempt to have other potential customers not fall into the same trap. Absolutely shocking.

We had our wedding at Dartmouth House recently and it was better than we could have hoped. Beautiful venue. The staff and catering were first class. Our planner Hannah was excellent in helping us.

Absolutely perfect in every way!

We had our wedding ceremony at Dartmouth House & what an amazing venue it is! Such a stunningly beautiful backdrop for a wedding. All our guests commented on how lovely it was. Camilla was fantastic, she organised everything to a t! So friendly & nothing was ever too much trouble. She was also very calming for us both when the nerves kicked in on our wedding morning. As we live in York we had to mainly contact Camilla by email, yet everything we asked for she got completely the way we wanted. The staircase was fantastic for wedding photos also. THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF!

Amazing venue!

My wife Sarah and I recently got married at Dartmouth house on the 28th October and we wanted to drop you a note to express how amazing everyone at Dartmouth House was.

Chloe Lemmon was a brilliant events manager for us and made ourselves feel calm and relaxed from first meeting her till the day of the wedding.

She was always easy to contact and very accommodating for any changes or requests we made throughout the planning. She made the whole process smooth and was a real credit to Dartmouth house and your company.

Additionally all the waiting staff were great on the day and the lady in charge of the waiting staff, I think her name was Georgina, was really helpful and a delight to have on the day.

Thanks to you and your team again for making our day so special,

Amazing Wedding Venue!

We had our wedding at Dartmouth House in Sept 2017 and the day was absolutely perfect. Our wedding coordinator Rebecca worked hard to make sure the day ran smoothly and it couldn't have gone any better! The venue itself is stunning (especially the beautiful staircase) and the catering staff were very professional and accommodating. We would definitely recommend Dartmouth House to any couples looking to book a classy wedding. Thank you.

We indeed had a fabulous wedding and are very pleased to assure you that the elegant interior of the venue, your professional catering team, the delicious and fresh food and drinks served throughout the day, and the kindly service and advice from you yourself greatly contributed to our wonderful experience.

A Perfect Day.

Not only was the venue beautifully dressed to my specific requirements and design but the food and service were perfect in every way.
I was concerned it was going to be quite stressful but the wedding planner was a great help and went out of her way to fulfill my wishes.
Thank you to Katie, Joe and the team.

glamourous, spacious, and yet intimate

We chose to hold our wedding ceremony at Dartmouth House because of its stunning interiors, unique courtyard space, and prime location in the heart of Mayfair. However, while we were very impressed with the charming architecture and design of the venue, we could not have imagined just how attentive and on-point the H+J team were. From day one, Katie and her colleagues gave us great ideas for our celebration and really streamlined our decision making process, which was especially valuable for us as busy professionals with no event planning experience!

Katie - "exceptionally organised and friendly, Katie suggested practical ideas that complemented our personal vision. We felt totally at ease with her on the big day itself, knowing that everything was under control. If she's planning your wedding or special event, you're in great hands."

Chef Joe - "guests told us that the food, especially the lamb, was five-star quality. It really felt like an upscale dining experience, rather than just 'another wedding Breakfast.' We appreciated the care and attention that went into the presentation. The menu elevated the whole day!"

Staff - "courteous, attentive, and always smiling. Guests were very impressed with the quality of staff, especially with how meals were presented in such an elegant manner at the tables."

Venue - "The lovely French-inspired Georgian townhouse in the heart of London Mayfair felt glamourous, spacious, and yet intimate. The interconnected flow of various rooms and courtyard allowed guests to mix and mingle at ease. The Churchill Room is such a versatile room - perfect for the ceremony, and magically transformed into a fab dance space later that evening!"

Best wedding ever!

We have received so many comments about how our wedding was ‘the best wedding ever,’ which we attribute to obviously our lovely guests, but also how wonderful everything was at Dartmouth House.
We knew it would be a great place to get married and that the staff would be great on the day, and it’s the very reason we went with the venue to begin with.
We’re just very pleased it all came together with no issues on the day.
Their impeccable service on the day and such consideration of our guests, we heard nothing but good things about the service and the staff. A big thank you to Regi and Carine, and especially to Katie the wedding coordinator.
Thank you and everyone on your team for making it memorable.
