Hi Joanne, Yes we are enjoying our week off and settling into married life now. We were both really pleased with everything you and the team did for us. The day was perfect and couldn't have gone any better. I'd be grateful if you could also pass on our thanks to Edwina as she was fantastic on the day. We were really impressed with the room, it was beautiful. The DJ was great, he played everything we asked for and the karaoke was fantastic. All our guests really enjoyed the day and said the food was lovely. Thanks,

A Perfect Day

By Mr Smith, on 27 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 05 May 2018

I was the father of the bride at the Riley - Smith wedding last Saturday and I would just like to congratulate you on an excellent wedding venue. The decorations were beautiful, the staff were smart, efficient and attentive and led by the excellent Edwina who patiently saw me through all my duties on the day. Also I would like to thank the kitchen staff for the meals and canapés throughout the event and of course we were very lucky with the weather and could enjoy the private grounds around the Towneley Suite. I will unreservedly recommend you as an excellent wedding venue and thank you for making it in the words of the song ‘ a perfect day’.

Hi Joanne, We cannot thank the Dunkenhalgh enough for our wedding. Everything went very smoothly and all the staff were fantastic on the day. Edwena was brilliant nothing was too much trouble, from organising the groomsmen with their button holes to turning the rooms around in super quick time. Everybody loved the day, we would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped us to realise our perfect wedding day. Thank you again The Smiths x

Thank You

By Mr Thompson, on 10 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Dec 2017

Joanne, We just wanted to write to you to thank you for all your efforts over the past few months in helping to organise Charlotte and Matthews wedding reception which was held on Sunday 31st December. All your efforts and input certainly paid off which helped make it the success that it certainly was. So again, many thanks for your professionalism and care throughout. We also wanted to add thanks for the care and attention showed to us by Neil Wardally and Edwina McDonough who were extremely thorough in their care and attention on the day preceding of the wedding when we came over to set up etc and on the day itself. Many of our guests commented on the excellent service received initially by those waitresses serving canapes and drinks and latterly how professional and polite all waiters and bar staff were throughout the afternoon and into the evening. I would be grateful therefore if you could relay our comments to the staff and to their managers. Thanks once again and best wishes for 2018.

Thank You

I am the very proud mother of Becci who married Danny on September 2nd. I have been away on holiday since then, so, now that I am home, I want to thank all the staff of the Dunkenhalgh who helped to make the wedding day so memorable. We received a lot of help with accommodation, especially with regard to appropriate provision for my grandchild. The organisation of the day was efficient and yet relaxed; and we were blessed with a warm and dry day which enabled full use of the outdoor areas. The food was delicious; many guests commented upon this. The room was attractively set and managed throughout the day. I would especially like to mention the special contribution made by Peter, our Master of Ceremonies. He ensured that everything came together as planned, even when we were running a little late. His manner was warm and friendly, yet thoroughly professional. He was clearly committed to making sure that the day was a success. Please share this “Thank you” with all the staff who were involved. We would definitely recommend the Dunkenhalgh as a wedding venue. I just wish that we could do it all again! Best wishes
