Hi Abbey, Hayley and all the team We just wanted to say “Thank you so much” for everything leading up to,during and after our wedding and 2 night stay. Every single member of the staff throughout the planning, the day itself and afterwards treated us and our guests so well. It’s the simple things that make all the difference, being polite, helpful, friendly and caring which was given to us and our guests all of the time, for which we truely appreciated for our special day. The room looked fantastic during our wedding ceremony and our wedding breakfast with some great input from yourselves in the lead up to the day, also turning the room around in-between quickly. Your attention to detail was impeccable. We also really appreciated you being flexible with us and allowing us to put some of our own finishing touches to everything that you did. We have shared with many friends and family how special you all made us feel on our wedding day, making us feel that nothing was too much trouble!... you have all gone the extra mile and thank you so much.

You made the whole process so enjoyable

Oh my gosh where to start?! We had the absolute best day and can't thank Abbey and Hayley enough for all the work that you both put in to make it absolutely perfect! The rooms, both the Snug Bar and the Eaton Suite, looked incredible and it was so exciting and satisfying to see it all come together finally. Hayley did an exceptional job at arranging all our decor and setting everything up exactly how we asked. Everything far exceeded my expectations. All our guests commented on how good the food was, the roast beef was a huge hit and the vegetarian dish we chose was delicious. We were also really impressed with the evening buffet - we couldn't believe how much food there was! It was presented beautifully and so many people said it was the best brie they had ever had! It's been a pleasure working with you Abbey over the past 12+ months to plan our wedding. You made the whole process so enjoyable and you definitely helped lower my stress levels on many occasions! You set the tone for the wedding from day one and we knew we had a fantastic coordinator looking after us. This definitely continued through with every other member of staff we encountered on the day - Hayley as I've said already was brilliant and every member of bar and serving staff were professional, fun and so helpful. Thank you again for everything you've done for us - Francesca and Lewis xx

Thank you Abbey & Drew, we had a wonderful day and the weather could not have been better...especially compared to the last few days! Everything was perfect and Drew was brilliant. He's so sweet and he puts you at ease, making sure we had everything we needed throughout the day and even when we lost track of time he made sure it all went smoothly. X

Thank you

Thank you, our wedding day was amazing and it all went to plan, I wish we could do it all over again, it went so fast. Our venue room looked lovely, all how I wanted it to be and the food was lovely too. We all enjoyed ourselves and the guest's had a good time too. Me and Daniel had a ride around in a golf buggie with our photographer for photos, we had a right giggle. Our 4 poster room we had was very nice it was very big and wow.

Dunston Hall made our day extra special
Venue Service

By Louise & Matthew, on 05 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

We had such an amazing day! The weather was perfect and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. Abbey and Hayley have been absolutely amazing for us so thank you very much. When we picked Dunston as our venue it was mainly because as a place I always drove past I always said I wanted to get married there since I was a child, but Abbey, Hayley and the rest of the team have made it extra special. When I asked Matthew his best bit about the day he said driving the golf buggy and his second best bit, the cheese board!!! Hehe. We had a lot of comments saying how lovely the venue was and how great the hospitality was. Hayley was really great on the day, she was always there when we needed her but never in the way. The food was lovely and the day flowed very smoothly.

Everything felt effortless.

Abbey - It was an amazing day. Very special for me and my wife of course but all our guests have said they had an amazing time too. Everything was perfect. Thanks for all your help with everything. Marcus and Hayley were excellent on the day too. They were always there when we needed them but also gave us our own space when we need it too (which was a really good balance). We are still processing everything but we loved all the little touches you guys at Dunston did from the champagne glasses to our wedding card it was really sweet. We also really enjoyed going out on the golf buggy to the 18th, I think our photographers were pretty chuffed with that as well. All our guests had such a great time and please let Marcus and Hayley know what a great job they did on the day, they just made everything feel effortless.

Blessed to be married in Dunston Hall.

By Tasha and Sam, on 06 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

Abbey was our wedding coordinator and was outstanding and going above and beyond what was expected. Helping us when we had some awkward requests from relatives and generally being an absolute god send. Drew ran our day and really was a credit to you guys and he managed to get everything set up and running so smoothly. And just like Abbey he was brilliant whenever we wanted anything. The guests all absolutely loved the venue and the evening and we kept getting told how beautiful and relaxed it all was. You guys made the day and we can't thank you enough.
