Beautiful venue

Guests commented on it being the best food they had ever had at a wedding.
The hotel is beautiful too but a little inflexible with allowing guests to check in early if attending a wedding so unable to get ready at hotel before ceremony.
Also venue chairs are not very nice so we hired different ones. A lot of add ons such as twinkly lights and chairs etc

Really enjoyed our wedding at Sandburn

We had our wedding reception at Sandburn Hall recently after multiple delays due to Covid, and got legally married there a year before. Sandburn were wonderfully organised and handled the delays very well, and on the day - despite lots of Covid scares etc. - everything came together fantastically, and we were very well looked after. We had been slightly put off early on finding that certain things like the nice chairs and lighting seen in the brochure had been handled by other suppliers (with an additional cost) but in the end it wasn't a problem and we're really glad that we chose Sandburn. All of our guests were very complimentary and really enjoyed the day, and the hall and grounds looked beautiful - we even got some great sunset shots outside.

The perfect wedding venue

From the moment I stepped in to the event hall, I knew I wanted to have my wedding there.
All of the staff, from first booking down to after the wedding, were professional and flexible with requests. We had the wedding breakfast BBQ followed by an evening buffet. Vegetarians and allergies were catered for easily, and everyone loved the food. Everyone was so attentive throughout the day.
Special thanks to Katrina, our wedding coordinator, for pulling the day together with precision and making us feel special and welcome

Thank you!

We cannot thank Hayley and the team at Sandburn enough for their help and patience in the run up to the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble and we had no doubt that the day would run as smoothly as it did. We felt so lucky to be able to get married in such a stunning venue with its beautiful surroundings. When we were originally looking for our wedding venue we knew we wanted a blank canvas which we could make our own - Sandburn Hall really was the perfect choice.

Big Thank You!

We celebrated our wedding at Sandburn Hall in April 2016 and absolutely recommend it! When we first went to visit we knew it was the right place for us - so light and natural. The main room is absolutely stunning and very atmospheric. The whole planning process was a dream, Samantha was incredibly helpful and reassuring, she knew just what we needed! The big day itself was great, we felt we could relax and just enjoy it all. The gardens were beautiful for the photos, the food was absolutely delicious and we're just so happy! Thank you for making our day so memorable!
