"We got married here 15th April 2022 (Good Friday)! Our day was amazing from the get go, honestly, I know everyone says it but it was the best day of our lives. Annie, our wedding coordinator had everything in order and it all ran like a dream nothing was an issue! The venue was beautiful and perfect size for our guests... the food was immense and plentiful.. Shaun and all of the restaurant staff could not have been better. The transition to evening reception was done in no time and the disco was a perfect way to end the day.. actually, no the 2am bath was the perfect way to sooth my feet! I would recommend Hotel Du Vin (Newcastle) to anyone 🥰"

"Our day at the Hotel Du Vin was perfect from start to finish. The whole team were outstanding - completely in control of all timings and ensured the day (and night) ran smoothly with zero input from me! They brought my vision of the day to life and the whole experience was easy and
stress free. The serving staff were so lovely and enthusiastic with our younger guests, and the food was incredible. What more could you ask for? Me and my husband are coming back for our first wedding anniversary, and will enjoy reliving the memories we made on our special day."
