Dalston hall was a dream venue
Me and my husband got married at dalston hall in August after falling in love with the venue after a tour we booked straight away after a consultation where we were asked everything you could think of 6 weeks before and we're put at ease about our special day. My bridal party stayed the night before In there beautiful rooms and used the getting ready room on the day of the weeding we choose to get married outside under the gazebo we were very lucky with the weather dalston hall staff especially Mark were great and would 100% recommend it's especially nice as it's the whole place to yourselves which was great for us. The grounds are beautiful
