Wedding Weekend of Dreams

Having lived 5 minutes away from Dunston Hall for years, finding this hidden gem for our wedding was just perfect! We instantly fell in love with the house... The grounds and all the rooms are stunning and the karaoke bar in the cellar was a real hit! The newly renovated Stables are beautiful and the perfect space for your wedding reception!

The start of our journey was bumpy with changes in management, but Macauley, Anna and the team went over and above to make sure everything was perfect. You can really tell the team care and they make you feel like you aren't just another wedding! All our guests commented on how attentive and just lovely all the staff were all weekend!

Jordan designed an Italian inspired menu, making sure it was exactly what we wanted and him and the team really delivered! The food all weekend was delicious!!

Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend everything we wished for and more!

Best Day Ever ❤️

From the moment we had our first viewing at Dunston Hall only a couple of months ago, we were absolutely blown away… the hall itself is absolutely breathtaking, the grounds are stunning, the garden ceremony room is absolutely beautiful and the newly refurbished stables is an incredible space!

We were welcomed by Macaulay, Claire and Anna, who were truly amazing ladies! Nothing was too much trouble, they understood our vision and delivered above and beyond our expectations. Mark was also absolutely fantastic, we met Mark on the day and he became a familiar friendly face for our family and friends throughout the day, helping make sure our day was perfect! So many of our guests commented on how lovely the staff are, words really don’t do them justice! The hardest part was actually saying goodbye to the members of staff, they became a huge part of our journey and our experience would not have been the same without them.

We were also so impressed with food, and received amazing feedback from our guests regarding the wedding breakfast and evening BBQ. The portion sizes were so generous, they even offered more bread for the soup, more gravy for the roast beef, they really looked after each and every one of us and catered for dietary requirements incredibly well too!

From start to finish, Dunston Hall was perfect, I am so pleased I came across them, they really did create the most memorable day for us and our family.

Thank you SO much, from the bottom of our hearts we are truly so grateful for you all ❤️

Perfect Wedding Day

An absolutely magical day! On 27/08/23, I got married at Dunston Hall and it was just fantastic. When I first went to look around, I fell in love with the place - it really is stunning.
The ceremony room is breathtaking and was further enhanced by ‘Lillies Bespoke Faux Flowers’. I guarantee you will not fail to fall in love with it.
The Stable room which held the wedding breakfast is amazing, just so elegant and classy.
The bedrooms are again just beautiful. The beds are extremely comfortable, the duvets and towels just so soft and fluffy.
They really have thought of everything to ensure you have a perfect stay.
A huge thank you to all the staff who made my day one I will never forget. Special thanks to Mark - as my day got closer, I was getting more nervous about how it would be. You were constantly reassuring me - you said it would be as perfect as it could be, and you were right. It was just perfect.
Macauley - from first meeting you, you were warm, welcoming and so very helpful. You even went as far as a practice walk down the aisle :) and making sure my trail on my dress was perfect. Thank you!
Anna - for your communication throughout, the emails too and fro to again ensure my day was all I wanted.
Jordon - the food was spot on. Looked delicious and the taste matched. All the guests were full of compliments about the food. Thank you!
Dunston Hall is a place you must go and visit when considering venues. I promise you will not be disappointed. I just wish I could do it all over again!
