The Down Hall wedding team worked wonders for us when planning our special day. They’re caring, efficient and clearly have years of experience in organising weddings - the value of which cannot be underestimated. Organising a wedding in 2020 has at times felt like trying to pitch a tent in a storm only for it to be blown away given lockdown and a series of changes to wedding regulations. The team helped us to navigate the various covid regulations without letting them dominate our special day and did so with the utmost sensitivity.Sent on 07/10/2020
The grounds and function rooms are stunning and offer a gorgeous backdrop for your ceremony, pictures and celebrations. The rooms are spacious and the Liddel suite in particular is a treasure trove of a room with all sorts of surprises including a romantic bathtub with views across the grounds. The food was delicious and the day was a success despite such difficult circumstances. Thank you Down Hall. We would not hesitate to recommend you for anyone planning a wedding in the future!

The Most Perfect Day!
Right from the start we was not even sure if we could have this fantastic venue, due to our small and intimate wedding. But to our delight, Down Hall tailored and accommodated our needs every step of the way. We must say all of the staff were brilliant in every way possible.Sent on 06/10/2019
The food was perfect, and presented beautifully, and our guests loved it.
My husband and I had the most magical day. Once again we would like to give a massive thank you to all of the staff at Down Hall, for giving us a day that we will never forget.
