A huge thank you!
We just wanted to send a hug thank you for all your support and flexibility during this last year but especially for 2nd May 2021! We had the most perfect ceremony and loved the time we had at Doxford Barns afterwards drinking bubbles and listening to music & getting excited about our celebrations in April 2022! We can't put into words how grateful we are but look forward to doing it all again with you next year!

You will have our eternal gratitude
I really have no idea where to start!!!!! I have thought long and hard of what I wanted to say to you all and it’s so incredibly hard to put it into words. We are still in complete shock and unable to find the words to describe our day. We will never be able to thank you all enough for creating our dream wedding so last minute and doing such a perfect job! From calling your office on Monday morning you were all immediately so supportive and determine to make our dream day happen for us. To think how last minute this was but yet you all were still able to create and provide everything we could dream of and more! I can’t imagine the level of stress it must have been for you all as a team running around to make sure everything was as you wanted it to be and getting all of the ingredients for the food! We are unable to think of one thing to say that we would change or say we were unhappy with. When we say everything was perfect, it literally was perfect!! Every part of the venue looked breathtaking! So elegant and beautiful! We have had so many comments on our social media and messages from friends and family asking more about the venue and commenting on how incredible it looked. The cottages were absolutely beautiful!!! All of our guests who stayed all said they did not want to leave as it was so amazing!! My brother in particular loved the log fire and the AGA oven in his cottage. He used to live in a farm house so it brought lots of happy memories back for him. The standard of decor and attention to detail was amazing!! Our room (The Hayloft) was perfect!! So elegant and classy! I think all of our guests would of happily stayed for the week or had lockdown 2 at the venue. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and everything was there what we needed. We would like to say a huge thank you to the owners of the venue and farm too. They have been so flexible and supportive and we are so grateful for this. We know how difficult things are at the moment but for them still letting us go ahead is forever appreciated. From arriving at the venue and having a glass of wine, to the evening before food, and the breakfast the morning of the wedding. It was delicious!! All of our guests have since commented of how delicious the breakfast was. I also have to comment on the canapés as they were incredible!!! Usually at weddings we have not been able to have any as they have not had enough. But we loved how everyone had their own mini plate to try them all. They were amazing!!! But our personal favourite which stole the show has to be the sticky toffee pudding!!!! This is our favourite desert of all time and it did not disappoint. It has to be the best one we have tried, it was so luxurious and delicious! As for the evening food, we were so grateful this was put out for our guests to take away at the end of the night. We went back to our cottage and ate our share and it was amazing!!! The katsu curry was so tasty along with the rice and noodles. We totally loved everything and wondered if it would be possible to know the chefs favourite alcohol? We really want to thank him for his hard work. We appreciate it so much!! With Mark being a chef he feels the chefs are often overlooked and we know how hard they work and the prep he will of had to do so last minute. It’s so important we thank him for his amazing efforts. We also have to say a huge thank you to you and Sharon. Sharon was totally amazing the whole weekend. So kind, helpful and professional. I really hope you all know how much we appreciate you and your hard work. The day went so perfect with no interruptions or hiccups, this for us shows how much of an incredible team you all are. We will never be able to express our level of gratitude towards you all for helping make our day so special and incredible. I really want to be able to express my level of thanks to you all but I know this will be impossible. No amount of thank you's or words will ever be able to come close to expressing how we feel. You will all forever be a part of our memory on our wedding day for making it so magical and enabling us to have memories to look back on forever. This is all thanks to you and your amazing team at Doxford Barns! You and all your team are angels and you will have our eternal gratitude for what you have all done for us.

We had an amazing time
Just a quick email to thank you and the team for doing such a great job hosting our wedding last Saturday. We had the best time and all of our guests were completely in awe of the venue. Also Amanda was absolutely fantastic all weekend, we didn’t have to worry about a thing and she was so lovely and friendly and really made us feel so comfortable. We couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have run our day. Please pass this on to her as we are so grateful.
