The perfect day at the perfect venue

We are so happy we booked Slaley Hall for our wedding venue; the venue is beautiful and the staff were perfectly attentitive to our needs. Our guests remarked throghout the weekend how beautiful the location was and how professional the staff were.

Laura, our coordinator went above and beyond to make sure everything was ready for us. On the day, Sarah made sure everything ran like clockwork. There was one hitch with our canapés that we passed on to Laura the day after the wedding (we had ordered 4 different types but only 3 were served on the day, one of which was different to what we had ordered|) but this did not detract from what was the perfect day at the perfect venue.

We would highly recommend to anyone considering Slaley for their wedding venue.

A most perfect day

We had the most perfect day from start to finish. Our wedding coordinator Laura was fantastic especially contacting us and putting our minds at rest regarding the covid pandemic they answered any questions we had and were very fast at replying to my emails. On the day we arrived much earlier than they anticipated us but it wasn't a problem we were shown to the bar and they promptly set everything up for the drinks reception. We chose the dukes suite for our sit down meal as the views across the golf course we're amazing and it offered a more intermit environment. Food was delicious and everyone loved our choice and they even selected a few special dishes for family with food allergies which they took very serious. Night time we moved onto the keilda suite which provided excellent space with its own bar for our night time party. The staff were amazing especially David who was on the day our go to person and also the concierge Nevil who was great and looked after our belongings and put them in our room ready for the night. I can't thank everyone enough for what they did for us.

Perfection in every way

Beautiful surroundings, brilliant team. Laura was the most amazing and helpful wedding planner ever! Communication was amazing (especially when you had to do it four times). Will made the day run so smoothly and the team on the day were amazing too. We only viewed the one venue because as soon as we seen Slaley, we knew it was for us. Highly recommend!

Slaley Hall Wedding

I could not recommend Slaley Hall enough. We were unfortunate that we had booked our wedding in 2020 and therefore had to postpone our day. Our wedding planner Laura could not have been any more helpful. There was never a moment where we felt unsupported or stressed. I had read about other venues who had asked couples to change their price or to go ahead with the wedding with the limited numbers but Slaley never pressured us to do this. They were incredibly supportive throughout and as we got married at the end of November 2020, I had asked if any Christmas trees would be up in time for our day and Slaley went out of their way to make sure this happened. It looked stunning and made our day even more special.

The venue is absolutely stunning. We chose to be married in the drawing room and then have our meal and evening reception in the kielder suite. Both of which were perfect for 80 guests. The food was delicious! Throughout the day, all the staff went out of their way and the entertainment on the night time was fantastic. We booked a winter package with Slaley that included a DJ from Prime Entertainment. He was absolutely brilliant and the dance floor was full the whole night.

Most of our guests chose to stay and commented on how lovely their rooms were. I stayed in the Ladywell suite the night before the wedding (perfect for getting ready in on the morning with bridesmaids) and the Ministeracres on the night of the wedding. Both rooms were phenomenal!

We chose to have our photos taken outside and also made good use of the Japanese gardens. We managed to get some amazing photos courtesy of our amazing photographer (Stephen Beecroft).

I honestly could not recommend Slaley enough. They made our day absolutely perfect and we’re worth every penny!

Fantastic wedding team

Can not fault the wedding team at slaley. Our 1st date in 2020 was cancelled due to pandemic and the team were fabulous and so helpful. Kate our wedding coordinator was particularly fantastic. Everything we asked was answered immediately. She kept me calm throughout the planning especially in the current circumstances with restrictions changing. The wedding day took place and everything ran like clockwork, luckily the restrictions were all lifted and our day went as planned thanks to Ben the operations manager and team. I wish I could do it all again!

23/5/2024 The Martin Wedding

Honestly the best day of our lives! We had our wedding at Slaley Hall, booked in feb 2022 for 23rd May 2024 and from the get go was hoping for our wedding to be outside under pagoda. Had heart set on this but due to weather week leading up was clear this wasn’t going ahead as rain wasn’t the best, the team as Slaley had a back up in drawing room in this case and it couldn’t have been more perfect, I ended up preferring it!! Such a beautiful room for our wedding, infact all the rooms including one prior for wedding party was huge and spacious for myself and my 6 bridesmaids to get ready in! Every staff member we encountered could not have done more for us, all extremely friendly and helpful, made us feel so at home!

All in all our whole wedding was a complete dream of what we wanted, infact more!! It was the best day of our lives and we can’t thank Slaley Hall enough for all their help and support throughout!!

Amazing day!🤭

My whole journey from the beginning to the end was amazing. If it wasn’t for Slaley hall my dream day wouldn’t of went the way it did.
From the venue, staff to management was spot on. Kate Walker was my events planner and What a lady she is. She was so professional and so understanding from the start. She help me prepare for my big day and checked up on my always and kept me sane! The venue itself was the most dreamiest place and I still pinch myself to think I got married there. Lastly. Let’s not forgot the grooms helicopter entrance. Thank you so much for letting us use your grounds. Everyone still speaks about it until today. Thank you so much to the slaley hall team for making mine and my husbands dream day a day to remember forever. Love always xx

The best from start to finish!!

We originally booked our wedding for July 2020 . We postponed twice due to the pandemic. Each time we postponed nothing was too much trouble and staff went out of their way to accommodate us . When we finally got our day everything was so organised and staff couldn’t do enough. Stunning venue. A day we will never forget. Special mention must go to Kate for her help running up to the wedding.

From the minute we decided to have our wedding at slaley Kate our event planner was brilliant, even when we had to change the date due to covid nothing was ever any trouble.

Slaley Hall

So we got married 10th July 2021 at Slaley Hall. I can’t thank them enough for the day, Laura helped us from the start which she was there for every email to meal taste to last meeting the day before! Had our room sorted to completing the chairs. On the day we had Ben and David (David more behind the scene) but Ben met me the day before we spoke with Laura the day before to run through it all. On the day Ben came to the room helped me down to the wedding held my flowers so I could walk. Once married Ben took us to see the room before the guests honestly it blow me way it was exactly what we wanted! On the night do it was above expectations they were amazing from the room to the food! I even gave Ben my veil when I removed it for the night time, he took all my gifts and cards to my room I had nothing to worry about at all. Ben never sat down all day he was amazing! The after care was still amazing we have regular contact and we go up most weekends! So thank you so much Slaley Hall and the wedding team xx

Outstanding and Wonderful Wedding at Slaley

From the very beginning, we knew that we wanted to marry at Slaley Hall. Apart from the wonderful grounds and superb facilities, the wedding co-coordinator Kate went above and beyond to make sure that every single detail we wanted to include was met. After rearranging our wedding due to covid, the stress was taken away by how organised and efficient Slaley were. Emails answered straight away and no question was too small. On the day, everything ran like clockwork, the food was wonderful and all those small details we'd asked for were included. I cannot recommend Slaley Hall enough for a wedding. It was simply brilliant. We are looking forward to going back for our anniversary where we have received a discount and has already been arranged for us!
