The wedding of our dreams.

We still cannot get over how amazing you and your team were on Saturday. Dorton House was just incredible and the setting, atmosphere and your calm and seemingly effortless management of it all made for the wedding of our dreams. Thank you so much, it was perfect! Mr & Mrs Crites

We would really like to say a massive THANK YOU!!!

By Sam Langsford & Chelsi Langsford, on 21 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2017

We would really like to say a massive THANK YOU!!!! For making our wedding day feel so extra special! We had an amazing day and it would not have been as smooth as it was. The venue was a fantastic place to host our wedding, we both fell in love with it the first time we saw it. The grounds were amazing and so picturesque, we have the most amazing pictures all thanks to the lovely decor and beautiful grounds. You and your staff really went out of their way to make sure us and our guests had an amazing time. Our guests really complimented how lovely and accommodating you all were. The civil ceremony went really smoothly and the decor looked lovely.The transition from the civil ceremony and the drinks reception was really smooth and the guests really enjoyed the canapes and the drinks. And not forgetting the little plate of canapes you gave us for our little journey in our car. This was so thoughtful, those little touches really make the day feel extra special. The wedding breakfast food was really yummy, and all the guests thought so too. And thank you for meeting some of our guests dietary (choosen) requirements. They felt extra special that you accommodated to their needs. Not forgetting the little added touches, such as the pot of nuts for Sam as his trio of desserts (we both thought this was really amusing). We could not thank you enough. Best wishes Sam Langsford & Chelsi Langsford

We want to say the most massive thank you for your help, advise, planning and organisation of our wedding day on Saturday 8th August. You and your team were amazing! Everyone looked so smart, everything was on time (I know we didn't help as we were not on time for most of the day!) and also so organised. The food was delicious, every one of our guests said how much they loved the food and the presentation of it. We are so so happy that we found you and your venue and that you were available for our day. Once again we don't know how to thank you enough for everything. We are so happy with how the day went, it was just perfect and we know that is all down to you and your team. Thank you! We will be recommending you to everyone we know who wants to hold an event! Thank you again and best wishes Stacey and Arron Perrottet x

Jamie & all the team at Dorton House The Wedding on Saturday was absolutely fantastic! Everything ran so smoothly and efficiently. You and your team did an amazing job, from laying up to clearing up and everything that went on between. The moving of the church decorations to the house was brilliant, and more than we expected with the removal of and replacing of all the hearts! The food - superb! The service was exceptional your knowledge and experience obvious from start to finish. We have had so many comments from the guests all positive regarding the venue , the food and the service. Thank you for helping to make the day a huge success! Kindest Regards Hazel Lord

So, it's taken me a few weeks to get this review up, a lovely minimoon along with a serious case of the post wedding blues haha! I cannot recommend Jamie and his team at Dorton House highly enough... If you are thinking of having your wedding here then stop thinking and just book it! One of the main reasons we chose to get married at Dorton House besides the beautiful setting, was Jamie himself. Jamie is friendly, professional, helpful and genuine. Not to mention accommodating - we had our little Chorkie Max as one of our page boys! Nothing was too much for Jamie, he just wanted to make our day exactly as we wanted it. Jamie, THANK YOU SO MUCH! We had the most amazing day, you planned everything so well and we couldn't have asked for anything more! Our wedding breakfast was absolutely delicious (crab cakes, pork belly and lemon tart) so much so that I could eat it all over again - everyday! The wine to go with our food was also delicious - something mentioned by all of our drinking guests! And the fish & chip cones for our evening food - they went down brilliantly - our guests keep mentioning what an amazing idea they were! Our guests also loved you and your team, not to mention the beautiful house itself. We are so happy that we chose to get married at Dorton House. Everything was literally perfect. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Mr & Mrs Surridge X

Exceeded our expectations

By Stephanie Elrick, on 25 Apr 2014

To Jamie and the staff at Dorton House, we can't thank you enough for making our wedding day so incredibly special. Our guests have said they could not fault any aspect of the day and that is down to the great professionalism of your team. We both had a clear vision of what we wanted to the wedding ambience to be and you managed to exceed that. The food was sensational, the venue looked stunning and the wait staff were friendly and efficient. We wish we could live the day all over again - we wouldn't change a thing. This is a magical venue and a fantastic team. Thank you again, the Elricks x

Beautiful location, wonderful staff.

Hey Jamie, Lauren and I would like to say a sincere thank you for all your hard work on Thursday/Friday.The feedback from our guests has been wonderful and we both had a magical wedding day. Your team were polite, professional, approachable and efficient throughout - they are a real credit to you. Dorton is an extremely versatile venue and it was fun to use different sections of the house throughout the day. Whilst your team performed wonderfully on Friday, we'd like to thank you personally for all your help in the two years leading up to the big day. All of e-mails were answered quickly, meetings were friendly and communication was clear from the outset. Lauren and I really appreciated the way you took on board our requirements and implemented them. Thanks again and all the very best for the future. Lauren & Chris

Thanks very much for everything that you, Dido and your team did to make our wedding what it was. Clare had a fabulous time and, after all the dust had settled, (which took 2 days, an afternoon in the Italian sun, a lovely meal and a bottle of wine!) i realised how amazingly it had all gone, and we could not of dreamt of such a faultless and perfect day. Lots of people commented on how nice and attentive your staff were, and i know that some of my mates wouldn't have got home with out them! Thanks again for everything, it was a great way to start our new lives together. Clare & Andy 6th August 2011
