"Simply Stunning!"

We fell in love with Dorfold Hall the moment we drove in through the gates for the first time on the day we came to look around.

As a venue it is simply stunning, with so many gorgeous spots for guests to wander and opportunities for gorgeous wedding photos.

Our children too had an amazing time playing in the grounds on the day, the ability to close the gate of the walled garden was perfect as if meant the very small ones couldn’t run off!

We chose to hold our ceremony at Dorfold too and although the weather didn’t let us have our planned outdoor ceremony, the gorgeous coach house provided a perfect location for our vows.

Candice and Emmylou couldn’t have been more helpful in the initial planning stages with suggestions for suppliers, through to the last minute preparations and on the day itself. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure our day ran seamlessly.

We stayed at Dorfold on our wedding night in the fabulous bridal suite. A perfect end to a perfect day.

"Amazing Wedding Day!"

Thank you so so much for an absolutely amazing wedding day! It truly was the happiest of days. Every element of the day was all that we had hoped for and more. We honestly couldn't have wished for a more perfect wedding day and so much of that is down to you both.

Thank you for opening your beautiful home and spectacular gardens up for us and our guests to enjoy. Thank you for your help and advice throughout. From suggestions on suppliers, to taking our deliveries, to discussing the various weather options and timings for the day, to being on hand on the day to ensure its smooth running - no detail was left to chance and no request was too much trouble. Thank you for being so accommodating and lovely to plan our big day with. We feel extremely lucky to have been able to have our wedding day at Dorfold.

If Saturday 3 June 2017 is anything to go by, Dorfold Hall is going to be the setting for many breathtaking weddings for years to come!

Huge thanks again for bringing us so much joy!

"Dorfold is truly an exceptional"

Jill and I would like to thank you once more for everything you did to make Joanna and Ed’s wedding such an enjoyable occasion.

We acknowledge so much of you care and attention to every detail in the planning and realisation of their wishes.

Dorfold is truly an exceptional and beautiful location and your sacrifice to share your home with ourselves was greatly appreciated. It gave the day a special quality being your house guests and I hope as a wedding venue, it will continue to flourish and to the success you deserve.

Your preferred partners that provided the catering and drinks were exceptional and could not be faulted.

Weddings are a stressful situation not just for parents, but the pleasant and friendly manner of everyone I think contributed to the success of the day.

Once again, thank you for making such a memorable day possible

"We Fell In Love"

Words honestly cannot express how grateful we all are (not just Tom and I, but also our families) to you and Charlie for all of your hard work and hospitality.

From the moment Tom and I first arrived, we fell in love with the estate and your enthusiasm, warmth and vision. You have been just fantastic throughout the entire process, always responsive and happy to help us with second, third, fourth visits to Dorfold so we could be sure we planned our perfect wedding effectively. And from the moment Mum and I arrived on the Thursday, the entire few days became a dream (we have both been particularly tearful when reminiscing about eating breakfast in the glorious dining room, looking down the driveway!).

Thank you both so much for welcoming us into your house and your lives in the way that you did - you will always have a special place in our hearts and we really hope we can keep in touch and watch as your vision becomes reality and hugely successful for you (which it just will!).

"A Very Successful Day"

When we booked Dorfold Hall I naturally assumed this would simply be a commercial undertaking. This proved to be anything but the case. The organisation both prior and on the day was superb. The Hall, gardens and marquee looked stunning. In particular, the late evening sun perfectly framed the view of the Hall from the Marquee in the evening. Without exception, every one of our guests have talked about the beauty and elegance of the surroundings, and we have received many thank you cards that all comment about the magnificent location, and how this played a key part in a very successful day.

What I had not anticipated was the dedication, support and character that you brought to the whole weekend. As a consequence, this was a far more personal and individual event than I could have imagined. Having someone on the spot who not only helped organise everything but really seemed to grasp some of our emotions was incredibly valuable. At the risk of naming only one example, only a few minutes prior to walking Emily to the Coach House, Candice kindly pinned my buttonhole. This is just the sort of thing I would struggle with any day, let alone when my hands are shaking!

Lindsey and I both send our heartfelt thanks for becoming part of such an important and happy day and one we will remember for ever.

"Dorfold Is Truly Spectacular"

Thank you so much for all your kind help in enabling us to have the most special day. We really appreciate how supportive you were and readily available to talk through anything!

What you have created at Dorfold is truly spectacular.

We adored every minute, from the intimate Friday evening (that was just so special) to the big party onto Saturday. The suppliers and all your recommendations were fabulous too.

"The entire weekend ran so smoothly"

I have just returned from my best friend's wedding at Dorfold Hall. The entire weekend ran so smoothly, with Candice and her husband, Charlie, helping with everything. They were always on hand to help us and went above and beyond the call of duty.

The grounds, rooms and marquee are beautiful, everything is so well maintained. The food and wine was also incredible... Candice and Charlie have created the perfect wedding venue from their beautiful family home - you must visit this venue.

"Dorfold was the most beautiful place to have our special day"

Thank you so much for all of your work in making our wedding so wonderful. We really had the most fantastic day - it went even better than we imagined and in large part that was down to you. You were a total pleasure to work with. Everything just “magically” fell into place, and that was thanks to your quiet professionalism and utter un-flappabiity!

In the build up to the big day, Candice couldn’t have been more reassuring and ensured that we were comfortable that all of the preparations were in place. She went above and beyond what we could have expected, even lending clothes to a guest who had red wine spilled over her. The hall itself is steeped in history and is furnished impeccably, the grounds looked magnificent and are clearly very well looked after, and the sperry tent, with all of the fairy lights, looked amazing and was exactly what we were looking for. It really was the best day and Candice was an integral part of it. We can’t thank her enough and would recommend Dorfold Hall to anyone looking for something extra special!.
