Stunning location and great team on hand behind the scenes
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 ❤
Stunning barn wedding
Stunning setting, superior service
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.
Our Perfect Day
Fabulous - recommended for history buffs!
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 couldn’t have been happier with how the day and evening went. Nothing was to much trouble for the team! It really was a magical day for us and they were a massive part of making it. Thank you so much. Would highly recommend this venue and team!
Amazing Dorney Wedding
Amazing wedding venue
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
On cloud 9!!
The venue rocked too and looked stunning! Everyone had a fantastic time so thank you so very much
Best wedding ever!!!!
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.
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!
