Everything was absolutely perfect
Venue Service

By Rebecca & Michael, on 13 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

We couldn't be happier with Dunston Hall. From the moment we walked through the door right up until we left on Sunday morning everything was absolutely perfect. Every single guest has expressed how amazing the entire wedding was and especially Dunston Hall as a venue. We cannot thank you enough for your meticulous planning Abbey, attention to detail and all round helpfulness. Please also pass on our thanks to Kirsten, she was fantastic throughout the whole day. Our thanks also go to the rest of the staff, you are all a credit to Dunston.

Hi Abbey We had such a fantastic beautiful wedding! Honestly we can’t thank you and Chris enough for all of your help and for our wedding day running so smoothly! You both went above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough! Everyone enjoyed theirselves and said how brilliant the day was. Can’t fault the food, it was presented beautifully and tasted divine! And the service, bartenders and staff were all so polite and really helpful. I didn’t get many photos but will be more than happy to send over some when we get the ones from the photographer! He got some stunning photos. We are over the moon we chose Dunston Hall to hold our wedding, couldn’t have pictured a better place and staff to help sort everything! Thank you again!

Special memories
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Stevenson, on 06 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

From the first day we met Abbey, to choosing our reception rooms and the creating the perfect package/menu/room layouts and timings. We want to thank her, she is an amazing person. Without her help we would have been stressed and way out of our depth. She listened to our every wish and desire, gave us ideas that we could only have imagined. Everyone of our guests had such an amazing time and have all been raving about how beautiful Dunston Hall is. Many have said its the best wedding they have been to. Kirsten and her team on the day were everything we didn't know we needed. She was a pleasure, gave exceptional service and special attention to every second. Thank you for making our special day go without a hitch and turn into a memory we will cherish forever. Any bride and groom will be incredibly fortunate to be blessed with you all overseeing everything for them and making sure every second is a beautiful moment that will live forever.

A huge thank you for making the day such a memorable event that ran so smoothly. From the moment we arrived we felt completely at ease and all the staff were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We were so pleased with the wedding breakfast, the food was delightful and beautifully presented as was the evening buffet. The comments made by all our guests were extremely complimentary and everyone said how much they enjoyed the day. I would particularly like to thank Kirsten who looked after us she was brilliant and so efficient, we could not have asked for a better day at such a fantastic venue. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dunston Hall to anyone as the perfect wedding venue, thank you all once again for providing us with such wonderful memories.
