Thanks for a fabulous day
My Hubby and I had our full wedding at the Manor House in West Auckland, a lovely, cosy little venue, I couldn't fault it. It went very smoothly and according to plan, everything was perfect. Sarah, the wedding co-ordinator was fantastic from the moment we first met and booking the date, right up to the final little touches on the day, she kept in touch throughout the whole process, she is a wonderful asset to the team. The food was beautiful, well done to the catering team. Thank you so much for a fabulous day. With Love, The McNaughton's

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have so many fantastic weddings here it would be difficult to pick just one. Some of our most memorable weddings have been a Harry Potter wedding in the splendour of our Knights Hall, set as the Great Hall, a Vintage Tea Party in a tipi in our beautiful grounds with vintage china and hand-made bunting and a Victorian Gothic wedding with the Bride arriving in a hearse. Everyone's dream wedding is unique and we work with each couple to make that dream a reality.
