The most magical day
By Laura and Ian Leask, on 29 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017
As soon as we walked into Slaley Hall we knew this was our wedding venue. Jemma, Hannah and Jo were fantastic at making sure our day was planned perfectly. On the day events manager Fearne ensured the day ran smooth from start to finish. All of her team were superb in their service to us from setting up a magical room to the amazing food and keeping the sweets flowing in our Pick and Mix table. The day ran without any hitch because of the hard work the team put in. The venue was absolutely beautiful especially the Japanese garden. The Concierge were very helpful throughout our stay and on the day of departure Neville even collected our car and packed all our belongings for us. We can't thank you all enough for how perfect our day was and we wish we could do it all over again.

Me and my partner got engaged in October 2016 and booked Slaley Hall for May 27th 2017. When we first met hannah she was amazing, went through every detail we wanted, discussing all options. All emails I sent were answered very promptly, every aspect of planning went so smoothly. The wedding day itself, totally amazing, the staff were brilliant couldn't do enough to help. Neville was very helpful transporting all wedding items/luggage. James the wedding planner for the day was brilliant, organising every aspect. The barmen/ manager so polite and friendly and the wedding food was fantastic. We throughly enjoyed the day. I can't thank hannah and the team enough, they made our dream wedding possible, creating amazing memories we will never forget.
Wish we could do it all again!

I don't know where to start everything was just so perfect!!
Once we settled in James the New Manager and Hannah (wedding Planner) came to see us to go over the details for the wedding the following day they went through everything right down to the smallest of details to make sure everything was correct and to allow our day to be perfect.
The Day of the Wedding James & Hannah arranged relaxing spa treatments for us which helped relax us for the big day ahead. The spa ensured we had the double room so we could enjoy our treatments together which was a nice touch and helped make our big day so much more special. The set up of all the rooms we had for the wedding were perfect and stunning and nothing was a problem. The wedding ceremony run perfect from start to finish and was stunning with how the drawing room had been set up and the addition of the harpist we had to make it special to us, everybody commented on how perfect the ceremony was. We were then taken outside for some stunning photos in the grounds and to have our drinks reception and canapes which we had on the patio outside bar 19 which was lovely and the perfect setting with the weather being glorious. While we had some photo's outside the whisky snug was turned around to how we wanted it for a more relaxed evening reception the buffet served on the evening was beautiful and well presented. Overall we could not fault anything on our wedding day we had an amazing day and Slaley Hall made it so special for us.

Daughter's Wedding 2016
By Mr Flynn, on 25 May 2016
We booked our Daughter's wedding here about 20 months ago based on the fact that me and my wife, on average use the Hotel 2 or 3 times a year, usually for a wine and dine deal for birthdays etc and have never once been disappointed.
Since the arrival of Hannah, the wedding co ordinator the run up to it has been extremely well managed, attentive and most of all efficient.
The wedding took place on the 14th May 2016 , although we booked in for the night before to take the rush off things.
It was then that I got to meet Ross, the member of Staff that was essentially responsible for the entire schedule and facilitation of everything on the day.
A wedding nowadays is anything but a cheap event and the potential for so much to go wrong or fall out of synch is enormous. We need not have worried.
His attention to detail and quiet but very assured manner put everyone at ease and the end result of this was a day to truly treasure. Superb!
Overall a faultless experience and I would like to say a huge thankyou to every member of staff at the Hotel but in particular to Ross and Hannah without whom this would not have been possible.
A brilliant experience and a very proud father. Thanks again.
By Mr & Mrs Ives, on 27 Nov 2015
Everything went as we wanted and was extremely organised, I can't thank you all enough.
The venue looked amazing and I got really positive feed back from all the guests. Only one problem, I wish we could do it all again! Thanks for everything Hannah and I'm sure we will be back at Slaley at some point!
Thanks to you, Ross and the whole team involved!!

“The lead up to any wedding is stressful but Hannah at Slaley kept me at ease right the way up to the night before and was great at dealing with any queries we had even down to the smallest details.
The day itself was amazing, everything went to plan not a thing out of place and everything set up as we imagined.
Nothing was too much for any of the staff, they couldn’t do enough for us and all of our guests on the day, all of our guests commented on this.
Ross, well what an absolute gem he is!! He is so professional yet so laid back and kept me and the hubby at ease all day (including updating Ash on the NUFC score haha).
The food was devine and we had compliments from all of the guests, my flowers were all beautiful so a massive thank you to Gwen for giving us exactly what we wanted.
I have not a single bad word to say at all about Slaley and our day was made so perfect with the help of all the team at Slaley and we can’t thank them enough!”
Best day of our lives- Thank you Slaley

We got married here recently, and had the most wonderful time. The service was exquisite, all staff were incredibly helpful, and the food was to die for. From the second we arrived we were treated like royalty. Rafa our co-ordinator made everything go like clockwork, all we had to do was eat, drink and enjoy our day. Could not recommend more highly. All of our guests (from a wide range of locations in UK, Ireland and beyond) loved it also, and many have planned return breaks. We can't wait to return! Memories and photographs all wonderful. Thank you Slaley!

Spectacular service from booking the venue until my big day. Nothing was too much trouble and my coordinator Alex was a star. The inhouse florist Gwen knew exactly what I wanted and the arrangements were outstanding. It was the best day of our lives.
