Thank you for our amazing wedding!

Thank you for our amazing wedding at willington hall yesterday. From our first visit in 2016 we knew we had made the right decision. The venue looked amazing on the day (despite the wind and rain) and the staff were absolutely fantastic throughout. The guests had an amazing day and loved the venue, food and grounds.

I have to say a special thanks to Michel (not sure if that's how you spell it) but he was absolutely incredible and a credit to the team. He was so attentive, hardworking and did everything to make our day run smoothly.

I would like to thank Natalie for helping me organise our perfect wedding and for always emailing me back with advice, correspondence and being so relaxed. I can't recommend willington hall enough.

June 2017 Wedding

We just wanted to say thank you very much for everything you did for our wedding this June. The venue was beautiful and the service was fantastic.
Natalie helped us get everything organised in the months leading up to the wedding and helped us tailor things to us. The menu choices were brilliant (advice: don't eat breakfast before you go for the menu taster, you will want to eat it all).
Everything went very smoothly, especially considering we had guests wanting to change their menu options right up to the day of the wedding. I'm sure this can't have been easy to arrange but some how it was sorted.
On the day the master of ceremonies ensured there were no problems and made sure we were well looked after all day.
We could not recommend this venue more and thank you to everyone at Willington.

14th July Wedding

We had our Wedding Day at Willington Hall. The grounds are stunning and the weather was very kind to us so we were able to get married outside in the Temple. From initial booking right up to the day the communication was excellent. Not once did I worry that things wouldn't go to plan.
The wedding breakfast was as expected just delicious. Our guests were amazed by the venue, the food and the staff. All of whom made our day very special but hands down Michelle was outstanding very knowledgeable of the grounds ensured everyone was having a great time right up until it was time for bed. We had all the rooms booked for the night by our guests all had a great night sleep. The breakfast in the morning was a great full English all of us were able to sit down and complete the celebration together.

Wedding 1st May

Dear Natalie,

Just a quick message to say thank you so much for your help in making our day run so smoothly and be so fantastic last Sunday.

Everything felt perfect, and we are so grateful to you, Michelle, Chris and everyone else at Willington Hall - including the kitchen, bar and back room, gardening team and everyone else! - we know a lot of people pulled together to pull it all off.

We will remember it forever, as will all of our friends and family who have had nothing but praise to heap on our choice of venue (i.e. you guys!) and the way everything went.

We look forward to popping back for happy occasions with friends and family in the future!

Best wishes :)

James & Katherine

Wedding May 2015

Our wedding on 22 May 2015 was the perfect day and went totally according to plan, which was due to the hard work of Natalie (Assistant Manager and Wedding Co-ordinator) and Michel (Restaurant Manager who acts as Master of Ceremonies throughout the day), who were fantastic both in the run up to the wedding and on the day. Natalie was incredibly patient with all our questions and was always on hand for advice.

Michel was up late the night before and up at the crack of dawn on the day making everywhere look perfect (even moving all the chairs outside for us last minute when he decided the rain would hold off – he was right). His timings through the day were spot on and he did a very good job of organising everyone (in a subtle way though). Willington Hall is such a nice place and the staff cannot be faulted. The food was perfect, as it always is at the hotel.

The hotel rooms are lovely and our friends and family really enjoyed their stay. The bridal suite is great; the fantastic views and peacefulness took our breath away the following morning. We first looked at Willington Hall Hotel as my husband was taken there as a child by his grandparents so it holds some lovely memories and now it holds a very special one for us both.

Thank you again Team Willington!
