Full Description
We are delighted that you are considering Doxford Hall & Spa for your forthcoming wedding celebrations. At Doxford Hall, we are dedicated to creating a day that’s tailored to your exact requirements, including all the little details that ensure your special day is as unique as you are. Whether you’d like an intimate gathering with just a handful of your nearest and dearest or a grand celebration, we’ll go all out to make sure that your perfect day is just that – your day. Built in 1818, this much-loved country house, the epitome of Georgian splendour, has been lovingly restored and includes a wealth of exquisite craftsmanship, including fine wood panelling and a grand, handmade staircase: the perfect marriage of old and new. A sweeping driveway leads you up to the Hall through the ten acres of grounds. To the front are formal gardens beyond a sunny terrace, with classical stone features and wrought iron gateways giving rise to enchanting photo opportunities. Beyond, discover pathways with wild flower planting and ancient trees, leading to the yew tree maze and a secret walled garden, with espaliered trees. There’s an abundance of beautiful backdrops for your wedding photographs – and some quiet corners to enjoy time alone with your newlywed. Where better to begin your new life together than at Doxford Hall? Our grand, yet welcoming, reception rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies, each offering their own unique features and sense of occasion. Choose from the spacious Kennedy Suite ballroom with crystal chandeliers and ornate Rococo mirrors; the oak-panelled Frank Henry Mason room; or the Flower Room with its neoclassical arched feature window, the perfect backdrop for an intimate wedding. There’s also the George Runciman suite, ideal for winter weddings with its deep red colour scheme and classical pillars; or lets go onto the outdoor terrace with breathtaking countryside views.

Better than we could have imagined
We would like to thank Doxford Hall and all their amazing staff for making our wedding day even better than what we could have imagined. From first looking at the venue, on paper, Doxford Hall met all our “would likes”. When sending queries, the Wedding Coordinators were attentive and responded to all queries promptly. When we arranged our first viewing, we were unsure what to expect as neither of us had been before, but as we drove into the grounds of Doxford Hall we knew it was a very strong contender for our venue, but as we had our meeting with the Wedding Coordinators and found out more on what was available, we knew Doxford Hall was the perfect venue for us and booked there and then. Dealing with Doxford Hall after booking our wedding was such a pleasure and no query was too much, even when it came to deciding our wedding breakfast menu, dealing with the Head Chef David was enjoyable. He was open to ideas and keen to offer other ideas based on the themes we had described. When we went for the wedding breakfast taster, we were blown away by how amazing all the options were which made making a decision hard. The weeks running up to the wedding were made less stressful by how supportive the the Wedding Coordinator, Jon Allan, and Receptionist Kelly were. The Day before, Jon Allan, was very helpful and nothing was to much, this meant we could enjoy the run up to the day in the spa and relaxing the evening befor. On the day of the wedding, everything went so smoothly that if there were any issues no one was aware. Having Jon Allan on hand all day was a blessing as he ensured everything ran to time or made slight changes as needed. All our guests have commented on how amazing the wedding was and we believe a big part of that was down to the amazing venue and all the fantastic staff who work at Doxford Hall. Doxford Hall is not just an amazing wedding venue, but an amazing venue for a night or 2 away to relax or just for afternoon tea or a spa day. We can not wait to go back. Thank you very much for everything.

Cannot recommend you highly enough
To Jon and the team We would just like to thank you all once again for everything you did for us to make our day so special, not just on the day but in the lead up to as well. You made us feel as though nothing was too much trouble and everything went without a hitch. Special thanks also to Glen who handled the singing waiters situation so well and calming my Dad down. Everyone can’t stop talking about it. We would also like to thank Steven (Night porter) for letting us use the Spa after hours, the perfect end to the perfect day. We really can’t thank you all enough, words cannot express our appreciation, our day would not have been as amazing as it was without you all. We are so pleased that we chose Doxford Hall as our Wedding Venue, we cannot recommend you highly enough. Our guests absolutely loved the day and said the venue was stunning! We would love to do it all over again in a heartbeat! We hope to see you all soon the next time we visit to reminisce about the most amazing special day of our lives.

Magical and Unique
Doxford Hall Hotel and Spa was the most magical and unique wedding venue for our very special day. Doxford is surrounded by beautiful scenery, character and flair that adds true decadence to the hotel. The team at Doxford were 5*, they are extremely proactive, personalised and professional. They made our day absolute perfection. The dining is exceptional, the food is very high standard even on a very large scale and they maintain superb standards. The ballroom is by far my most favourite place with beautiful high ceilings, crisp style, very spacious and amazing character. Every room is bursting with character, style and class. We fell in love with Doxford many years ago and it’s just got better and better with the support from superb staff and Jon Allan who has gone above and beyond to make our day and stay perfect in every single way.
