Fantastic Summer Wedding
Venue Service

By Alice and David Hansen, on 24 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2018

We held our wedding at Seaham Hall and it was an absolutely perfect day supported by the excellent service, food, and surroundings of the hotel. From the moment we arrived at the hotel from the church everything was taken care of so we didn't have to worry and could just enjoy the day. During the planning you get a wedding organiser who kept on track with most of the big details. Also you are invited to a tasting where you get proper plates to eat - 3x starters, mains and deserts (we were so full!) This meant the food was exactly what we wanted on the day. The honeymoon suite (Ada Lovelace room) was very luxurious. The key feature of the room is twin baths - only thing I would say is a bit odd for a honeymoon. We also used the spa which was lovely and good to de-stress for a day after the wedding. Would also recommend people walk into Seaham town itself on a warm day - the seaside is absolutely lovely. In addition, the next day the staff were still celebrating our wedding by making an effort to look after us and calling me by my married name. It was a lovely touch. Highly recommend for a north-east wedding

Best Wedding Ever!
Venue Service

By Michelle and Martin Curry, on 25 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Feb 2018

We recently got married at Seaham Hall and all I can say is we got five star treatment at a five star establishment. The staff, food, rooms etc etc were absolutely brilliant. I stayed in an executive suite the evening before the wedding which was massive, beautifully decorated, and had fantastic views of the terrace. My bridesmaid and I had a lovely relaxing time in the spa area which was a lovely treat. You have to try the Ozone restaurant as the food is out of this world. The morning of the wedding and the day after breakfast was served in our room at no extra cost and it was delicious. The bridal suite was to die for and all of our guests were raving about the venue and their rooms. I could go on and on about how amazing it all was but all I will say is if you are planning a wedding please consider this venue as you won't be disappointed. Special thanks to Jessica and Chara who were our wedding coordinators and did an exceptional job. Thank you so much to all at Seaham Hall for making our day magical

Fantastic Wedding Venue!
Venue Service

By Henri and Phil Yeoman, on 25 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Feb 2018

We recently held our wedding at Seaham Hall. It was absolutely fabulous. Not only was the venue second to none, the staff were all outstanding, from Emma our wedding planner to Robert, who looked after us during the party and everyone else, too numerous to mention. We had a lot of family attend from Germany and Seaham Hall managed to show off the 'Best of British' superbly. All our guests had a wonderful time and so did we. We are very grateful for a fantastic service and venue. The staff's attention to detail was unparalleled, making every single person feel special.

Best day of our lives
Venue Service

By Emma and Stewart Dean, on 25 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Nov 2017

We had our wedding at Seaham Hall a few weeks ago and just wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff for giving us an amazing day. From the get go Jessica and her team were incredibly helpful in planning for the day, and really took on board what we were looking for. The day itself was incredibly well executed, and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests commented on how amazing the venue was - being particularly impressed by the grounds. The food was fantastic and the drinks were kept flowing. We stayed in the Ada Lovelace suite and can honestly say we won't ever stay in a better hotel room - it really is magical. Our family and friends who stayed over had a fantastic time. They commented on all the little touches in the hotel rooms and the extensive breakfast on offer. It was also a lovely treat to be able to spend a relaxed morning with family and our bridesmaids in the spa the day after the wedding. We would highly recommend for a wedding or event, or just a weekend retreat. You will be really well looked after. Thank you Seaham Hall

Perfect for our Wedding!

Wedding Reception, Lovelace Package
Venue Service

By Diana & Michael Jordan, on 25 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

If you are thinking of having your wedding reception at Seaham Hall, please do not hesitate any longer. We had our wedding there last Saturday and it felt like a real fairytale! The lovelace package was amazing, we absolutely loved our suite and were allowed to extend our check out! We would like to thank the wedding coordinators Emma and Jessica for their great help in the months leading up to our wedding. It was definitely a 5* wedding reception, thanks to all the staff and excellent venue. We would also like to thank Helen from the Spa, who has an incredibly welcoming and energetic personality! Emma welcomed us with a genuine big smile and helped us have a stress free wedding. I wish we could relive this special day again...

Outstanding wedding service
Venue Service

By Jane and Ben Quaintrell, on 25 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2017

We recently had our wedding at Seaham Hall and everything from start to finish was outstanding. The staff were so helpful and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. Jessica the wedding coordinator was extemely helpful and organised. We hired the whole of the venue for the wedding, all of our guests were amazed with the venue and everyone who got to stay said all of the suites were great. We couldn't have asked for any more from the staff or venue. We had a delicious meal in the Ozone restaurant the night before. The spa is one of the best I have ever been too. I just wish we could do it all again. When we came for our menu tasting we stayed in the Ada Lovelace suite which is the ultimate in luxury. On the wedding we had the Penthouse as it was a bit bigger for everyone getting ready, simply perfect for bridesmaids. Thank you Seaham Hall for making our wedding prefect and helping to create memories we will treasure forever xxx

Totally in love, our incredible wedding
Venue Service

By Kay and Daniel Mann, on 25 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2017

Firstly we would like to express how professional and attentive all the staff are at Seaham Hall, nothing is never to much to ask. We booked our wedding almost 2 years ago and very single part of the process has been stress free, every aspect thought through to the finest of details. Jessica the wedding coordinator was in every meaning of the word 'outstanding', always in touch, friendly, and we felt totally relaxed knowing that she had everything under control. I stayed the night before in the Penthouse suite - Wow! The pictures don't do it justice, there was more than enough room for everyone to get ready and the staff where so helpful as normal. The wedding it's self was incredible, the attention to detail, how professional and friendly the staff were to all the guests was second to none, everyone commented on how welcoming they were. The food in our eyes was unreal and the some of the comments our guests made "best wedding breakfast they have ever had"... We can't thank Seaham Hall enough for the most amazing day of our lives, we couldn't have chosen a better choice of venue for our wedding! We have always loved Seaham Hall but how it has an sentimental meaning to us and our family.. if your wanting outstanding service, breathtaking views and an unforgettable day then Seaham Hall is the place for you. We can't wait to return for our next visit

Thank You!

Most of them rating it their favourite wedding of all time! All the staff were so kind, smiley, and lovely. We love you all! Thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives!

My husband and I had our amazing wedding here on the 6th August. From start to finish the team at Seaham Hall were fantastic. Nothing was ever too much for them. We decided to go for the exclusive package, which meant we had the whole use of the hotel to ourselves. This was perfect. It meant we didn't have the general public joining us. This also allowed us to have all the rooms. Which was great as we had a lot of family traveling to come to our wedding. The venue is set away from the main road so it felt completely private. Communication was always fantastic with Jessica. She always responded to emails or phone calls. Jessica was great to work with and she made sure our wedding day was exactly how we wanted it. The day itself was perfect. The team worked so hard all day ensuring myself and my guests were happy at all times. Every guest commented on how attentive the staff were. Even through to breakfast the next morning, they were busy ensuring we had the best experience. The decorations, flowers, fireworks etc I didn't even have to check. The staff made sure everything was how I'd asked it be and it was. I didn't have to do anything but enjoy my special day. The food was delicious. We chose our menu prior to the wedding. We were invited to have tastings to ensure what we chose was right for us and our guests. Everybody commented on how spectacular the canapés, wedding breakfast and evening buffet was. Our day was perfect. Seaham Hall made sure that it was. I'm so pleased we chose this venue. It's stunning inside and out. I can't wait to celebrate our anniversaries back in this wonderful place.
