Wedding Reviews

We thought you may like to read a selection of the comments we have received from couples and their families about Dumbleton Hall over the past year or so.

“C & D’s wedding was the happiest of days. Of course the beautiful weather played a part, But your help and guidance, together with the friendly and attentive work by all the members of the staff at Dumbleton made it a stress free, wonderful day. It’s such a beautiful setting, but without the help and support of both you and the whole of the catering staff it would not have been the undoubted success it was. The oak room was beautifully set out and it was wonderful to return from the church to see the welcoming drinks and canapés set out on the lawn – a delightful and unexpected surprise. And everyone remarked on the friendly and efficient manner of the waiting staff and lastly, the food was superb. I don’t believe our wedding could have been bettered and are only a little sad that it is now just a memory. So our very grateful thanks to you and all the staff for making it such a special day.”

“We had the most amazing Wedding at Dumbleton Hall in March. The food was amazing and the staff willing to help at any point. The day was well organised from start to end. The venue is stunning and the grounds beautiful. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful the day was. It was truly a day we had dreamt of and will never forget.”

“Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you and all the Dumbleton staff, particularly Claire, for helping us to have the most wonderful wedding day back on February 19th. We could not have dreamed that it would go as well as it did. The venue was fabulous, the food was lovely, and all of the staff were amazing. We are so pleased that it went so well. All of the guests thought it was the most fabulous wedding they had been to. Most of all, we loved the day. Because of the dedication and attentiveness of the staff, we did not have to worry about anything and were therefore able to relax and enjoy ourselves on our most important day.”

“Me and Jack just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Dumbleton Hall for making our day run so smoothly. There were no problems and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. We want to say an even bigger thank you to Stacey and Dexter. You were so helpful in the whole process of planning our wedding and so quick to reply. Nothing was too much trouble and you really helped it be a more enjoyable process. We could not fault Dexter in any way, from the minute he arrived until we all went to bed he was incredible. He made sure everything run smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. Everything we asked was done immediately.
We would recommend anyone to get married at Dumbleton and will definitely be coming to visit and stay in the future.”
Mr & Mrs C ~ February 2017


“We would like to thank you all for the fabulous day we had at our daughter and her new husbands’ Wedding in February. Nothing was too much trouble and all of you were cheerful and accommodating.

Rachel & Chris ~ Dec 2016


“We booked our wedding in February 2016 after instantly falling in love with the venue, Our wedding was booked for 30th December after James “sold” the Christmas wedding idea to us, and I’m so glad he did. The venue was stunning, the food was delicious but most importantly all the staff were incredible. Stacy and Natasha had been absolutely brilliant over the last 10 months and I’m so grateful for all their help, time and patience with the planning of our wedding. The day was incredible and the staff even managed to fix a minor cake disaster! Our guests were all very impressed with the service on the day and those that stayed had a wonderful time.  I truly cannot thank the staff enough for the most wonderful day of our lives”

Could we say a special thank you to Dexter and to Claire for the organisation on the morning and the day of the wedding as nothing was too much trouble and the venue looked stunning, also apologies for running over with the timings and thank you for not making it a big deal at the time.”

“Wow, Dumbleton Hall truly is an exceptional venue, which made our day even more special than we could have hoped for. The building and grounds themselves are magical, but the staff make this venue even more unique and idyllic – they were phenomenal from the moment we first made an enquiry to the moment we left as Mr and Mrs. We cannot thank you enough for all that you have done and continue to do. I cannot recommend Dumbleton highly enough as a choice in wedding venue, or simply for a visit.”
Mr and Mrs G ~ June 2016


“We would like to take the opportunity to all the staff at Dumbleton who helped make our wedding so special. We would like to personally thank Stacy who was great throughout in communicating and helping us throughout the whole wedding planning. James was superb on the day, making us feel at ease and us knowing everything was in hand. The lady who was on Duty in the evening, she was a great help and kept everything in order and checking myself and Mark were ok, then there was a younger boy who stood out, he noticed Mark hadn’t eaten in the evening and plated him up lots of food. and he even wrapped us up in fairy lights for the photographer! All the staff were brilliant and we have had lots of praise from our guests about the staff on duty from the moment we arrived to the time we left, so thank you, you all were amazing.”

“I am writing to express sincere appreciation and thanks for the way in which your team looked after myself, family and guests at the recent wedding of my daughter. I would mention, in particular, Mr Dexter Cairns who acted as MC as well as checking all matters relating to the wedding breakfast and to your Ms Clare Pas, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes. My wife and I have nothing but praise for the way in which the event was managed and which was a most enjoyable weekend.”

“Can I firstly thank you ALL for making James & Alicia’s wedding the most magical day of our lives so far, nothing was too much trouble for you all. You worked so hard and were extremely polite to our guests. You and your venue will come highly recommended. Everyone said what a fantastic day it was and it wouldn’t have been if it wasn’t for all your hard work. Once again thank you so much.”

“On behalf of the Meadows and Thompson families Ben and I wanted to write to you to say how very thankful and appreciative of all your help that made our wedding day run so smoothly. In the many emails that were exchanged prior to, and our meeting before our wedding day, the service by your wonderful waiters and waitresses and yourselves was above and beyond. Nothing was ever too much of a problem, which made our stay all the more enjoyable. We would highly recommend Dumbleton Hall as the best wedding venue, and after being bridesmaid at my bridesmaid’s wedding 2 years ago and having a fantastic time, there was no doubt as to our choice of venue. Thank you so much again.”

We’d especially like to highlight the thought and attention we were given and how well we were treated both prior to, and on the day. We felt like royalty and nothing was to much trouble.
