Stunning barn wedding

I fell in love with dorney court when I went to visit it’s just perfect and we had the most amazing wedding. We had contact with our wedding planner from early on and they managed to make our busy day into a beautiful reality and we’re professional and organised. We had our Christian ceremony at st james the less and on the same day on the fields our Hindu ceremony then onto the barn for our reception. We went for the Asian catering which was mango lounge in Windsor. Everyone commented how amazing our venue was

Autumn Wedding

We would like to thank everyone at Dorney Court for making our wedding day so special. In the lead up to the event, Emma (our wedding coordinator) was incredibly lovely and friendly to work with, always responding efficiently to our queries and she was very patient with our last-minute decision making. We felt so supported during the run-up to the wedding and we would really like to thank Emma for going the extra mile to make sure everything was sorted on time. On the day, the team at Dorney made sure everything ran smoothly and were quick to adjust timings after our journey from the ceremony was delayed. Our guests commented on the food tasting amazing and having opted not to do the tasting menu, this was reassuring! The house, grounds and coach house looked stunning in the September sunshine and so many guests commented on the beautiful and striking setting which the team at Dorney manage so well. My husband and I really were able to enjoy the day and know that it was in good hands (the operations manager on the day and Emma) and this meant we loved every second. Thank you again.

Stunning location and great team on hand behind the scenes

We had an absolutely magical wedding day at Dorney Court. The team were extremely helpful beforehand, responding promptly and providing information on trusted suppliers. Our consultations helped us focus in on little details we could easily have overlooked, and on the day the team were so slick, and everything ran smoothly (despite my vague creative direction on placement of decorations). The food was also absolutely delicious, with ideal portion sizes for a 3-course meal with cake after :)

The grounds and house are absolutely stunning. However, don't think the high-end look stops you from making your wedding personal to you. We decided to do several things in a more homespun way (homemade cake, no DJ, homemade decorations) and the team were really accommodating of this, even though you can also go all out and source everything through suppliers as well if you like.

Worth every penny - thanks to the whole team ❤

Our Perfect Day

We had our perfect Spring Wedding at Dorney Court. Dorney Court is a beautiful location and added to the warmth we felt on our wedding day from our family,friends and The Dorney court team.Everybody has commented on the location and the delicious food, but the unseen stuff from the waiting staff to the decorators, from the bar staff to the operations director, all of them did a superb job that was beyond expectations. We will happily look back on the memories of our wedding day and a perfect start to married life , Mr and Mrs Drew :0)

Stunning setting, superior service

I couldn't recommend Dorney Court highly enough. We booked our wedding in August 2020, to take place a year later, when there was lots of uncertainty around what would be allowed due to Covid.
Thankfully we were able to have the unrestricted wedding we planned, and throughout Lucie, Don and the team were fantastic, helping plan a scaled back 50% capacity scenario as well as the full-scale event we went on to have.

The venue is simply beautiful. We had welcome drinks and speeches on the main lawn in front of the original house, which is full of character. We then had our wedding breakfast and evening reception in the Coach House Barn - the old converted stables, which have been modernised, but retain some original features such as the ceiling beams. The in-house catering team were great, the food was delicious. The adjoining courtyard is the ideal setting for after-dinner mingling - we had a mini crazy golf course for guests while the band set up. It was the perfect day!

Lucie and Don gave us such wonderful service, both in the organisation and run up and on the day itself - and were very accommodating when we found ourselves running a little late after arriving from our church ceremony at a different location.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dorney Court as a wedding venue.

Fabulous - recommended for history buffs!

From the moment we stepped out of the car on our first visit to Dorney Court in a rainy January, we knew there was something special about it...even if we couldn't put our finger on exactly what! We were looking for somewhere with a bit of history and character and this fitted the bill perfectly, and we loved that everything was all on one site and one level, and that it was totally exclusive to us throughout the day.

Having a church wedding was never a deal breaker for us, and at Dorney we had the option of church, barn, house or gardens for our ceremony, but on seeing the church, St James the Less, it was a no brainer. It was simply stunning. Note that to get married in the church you do need to establish a connection, attending once a month for at least 6 months prior to Banns being read, and attend a wedding preparation day with other couples...neither of which were too much trouble for us.

The team at Dorney are a delight to work with, very quick to respond and flexible to your wants and needs - they quickly put us at ease and gained our trust, with friendliness and professionalism throughout. Despite picking a summer's day and planning outdoor activities, the British weather had other plans for us, but the on site team were quick to adapt our plans for us so that we didn't need to worry about a thing on the day.

The on site catering team were fabulous, we were able to adapt menus and make them our own, and everyone commented on how good the food and hospitality was.

We used a number of recommended suppliers on the day, including on site florist Penny Hunter.

Amazing Summer Wedding

We had our wedding at Dorney Court in July 2023 and what an unbelievable venue with a fabulous team! (Emma, Rachel, Annabelle)

Amazing Dorney Wedding

The venue is so beautiful! We had the best experience with Dorney from the early stages of planning to our wedding day. The processes they have really helped us plan every detail systematically with the reassurance we hadn't forgotten anything. Emma and the wedding planning team helped enormously and gave us lots of recommendations as they know the venue best and what works well. We didn't have to think about anything on the day and it was seamless. We cannot thank them enough for helping make our wedding day so much better than we could have imagined. Thank you! Joe and Cerys

Amazing wedding venue

Dorney Court was such a perfect venue for our September wedding.
The venue was beautiful and had everything we needed - lovely gardens, a great barn, and the flexibility to tailor our day to our liking.
Emma (our wedding coordinator) was extremely helpful during the planning stages, in the lead-up to the day, on the day as well as post-event, she made the process extremely easy.
The team on the day were efficient and super professional.
The on-site kitchen is outstanding - we did not do a tasting but picked what sounded best and we were not disappointed.
Cannot recommend Dorney Court enough

Class at every point

Helpful and polite staff at every point of the experience. Arrived and mentioned a small thing in passing, not asking for anything to be done, and within a minute or two things were changed and sorted. Made everything effortless and did all we asked and more. We had the best day and would definitely recommend

Thank you so much! We literally had the best day ever!! Everything exceeded our expectations and our guests kept saying what a wonderful venue it was! They also said how amazing the food was and the service!
I can’t thank you enough for everything you helped with – each time I saw another part of Dorney Court I was just in awe! It’s funny you spend so much time planning and speaking with different suppliers when you finally see it all come together it’s amazing!

Best wedding ever!!!!

We had the most amazing day and I couldn’t quite believe how smoothly it ran without Alex or I needing to think about a single thing! There were a couple of moments when I remembered something I needed to ask you, looked up, and realised it was already done — from seamlessly moving everyone and everything outside when the weather was so good, to bringing the flowers across from the house to the barn so we could enjoy them for longer. It was also really special to be given five minutes on our own with a plate of canapés and a bottle of prosecco away from everyone – so thoughtful. Every single member of staff was friendly, professional and brilliant!
Our guests couldn’t stop raving about the food either – and two of our vegetarians said it was the best food they had ever had at an event. Thanks again for everything you all did to make the day so special.
