The most amazing day of our lives!
Venue Service

By Sarah & John, on 16 May 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Apr 2018

Jill we can’t thank you enough for the most amazing day of our lives! You made sure every little detail was perfect and didn’t forget a thing! The customer service was 10/10, at every point in the day! The food was amazing all of our guests were raving about it, also, all of our guests that were staying loved their rooms, the extra little touches in our suite were beautiful and the personal message from you all was so lovely! We had many comments on the set up of a private breakfast area, people loved that! Nothing was a problem, anything we needed we got instantly, everything ran so smooth we have no complaints whatsoever, we are definitely going to be recommending you to anyone who is getting married, the setting is just second to none! We are planning to stay on our anniversary every year! We just love the Radisson! Thank you once again for all the time you took to reassure me at every point along the way, for every phonecall and every email, for all of your patience and hard work! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator you were fabulous! Best wishes from The Carr’s! X

Firstly, thank you very much! Ryan and I had such a wonderful day on Saturday! Our stay on Sunday was lovely too, although we were so tired from the night before we were in bed by 9.30pm!! My mother and father in law would like to say a special thanks to the spanish waiter that served us on the top table as he went out of his way to provide us with fab service. He even went and brought them both a latte when they did not want the coffee :) I have to say the overall experience of working with you and the Radisson in the run up to our big day was absolutely brilliant. I could not fault your service you provided. Thank you once again for the card and champers plus the chocolate strawberries which were left in our room on the evening. Oh please pass on our thanks to those who took all of our gifts up to the room too,

We would highly recommend the Radisson as a wedding venue – you will be given an outstanding professional service where everything is provided for you and no ask is too much trouble. Many of our guests stayed in the hotel over the weekend and ALL our guests commented on what a great time they had had and how well they had been looked after Fiona and Lin Fidgin June 2014

From start to finish you and your team were so helpful and went through every step in great detail. Every idea we had you helped with and accommodated. We had the perfect day and that would not have been the case if it was not for Shana and the staff. Every detail was looked at on our day and our guests had a lot of positive comments about the evening buffet especially and how good the staff were. The whole day was perfect and we cannot thank you enough Mr and Mrs Hutchinson January 2015

By Abigail Broderick, on 05 Jun 2015

We had the most fabulous day celebrating our wedding reception at Radisson Blu, Durham. From arriving to checking out the next morning everyone went above and beyond their call of duty to make sure our wedding ran like clockwork. The room was set up exactly how we imagined, if not better; the attention to detail was remarkable. We had two menu tastings prior to the wedding and the chef was very accommodating with our requests, serving the most delicious food on the day to our guests who all complimented its' quality and presentation. The day went so smoothly and even the bride was relaxed the whole way through! We highly recommend the Radisson and can't thank the staff enough for giving us a wonderful wedding day that we will never forget. Gavin and Abigail Broderick

For the setting up of the day the staff in general could not have been more helpful and hands on. Our day was just as it should have been and we have perfect memories from it; there could not have been a better venue for us. The food served to our guests was of a very high standard – many guests came up to us on the day complimenting us on how lovely the food was. The room was well kept, bright, airy and large enough for our sizeable guest list. The package we were offered was also quite comprehensive in comparison to other venues in the area and at a reasonable cost. More so as we later learned, as the food served to our guests was of a very high standard – many guests came up to us on the day complimenting us on how lovely the food was. Lorraine and John Wilson September 2014

Venue Service

By Dawn Wise, on 05 Jun 2015

The day before the weddings staff were on hand as soon as we arrived. They assisted us with storing the wedding cakes and table decorations, and genuinely seemed pleased to see us and excited too. From the initial e-mail we made eight months prior to our wedding day right up to when we said our goodbyes, we were made to feel special. The advice and support from our wedding organise/planner was fantastic, they explained everything in detail, gave us lots of options and we went through the actual logistics of things, down to every last detail , which made us feel really relieved Dawn and Jason Wise September 2014

Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Emma Lee, on 05 Jun 2015

Whenever our wedding is brought up in conversation, we all end up talking about the food, it was delicious! Honestly, one of the best meals I have ever had. Radisson Blu, Durham, truly delivered an amazing day for Danny and I. We got married there and we could not have chosen a better venue. Everything ran so smoothly and beautifully. The staff were brilliant and very helpful – they came running to anything I needed – I felt like a princess. Emma and Danny Lee, January 2015.
