"We just wish we could do it all again!"
From our first visit to Hagley Hall and initial discussions with Tracey we knew that we had found our venue.
The main aim for our wedding was for it to be an intimate and cosy affair, with a dash of 'Downton'.
Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for Tracey and any ideas that we had were listened to and talked through so that nothing was left to chance.
As we only invited 27 people to the ceremony and wedding breakfast, having a choice of rooms to use made our 'cosy' feel easy to accomplish and it never felt like the rooms were too big for our party.
We decided to have the marriage ceremony in the Saloon which was a very bright and cheerful room, with the drinks reception in the White Hall. Although it was October 31st, the weather was very warm and sunny so we spent a lot of the time outside on the balcony having our photographs taken and admiring the wonderful views of the grounds.
We had our wedding breakfast in the Crimson Dining Room, which is a stunning room. It suited our “Downton” theme perfectly. With the fire blazing, the candelabras alight, portraits and tapestries looking down on us and the fine dining table set out beautifully, we certainly felt like lord and lady of the manor.
The staff who served the food were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. As for the food itself (provided by Morgan’s catering) it was outstanding. All of our guests commented on how delicious it was and still mention it to this day!
We have no hesitation in recommending Hagley Hall for the top of your wedding venue list. We couldn't fault anything on our wedding day, the staff and especially Tracey put us at total ease on the day, we had complete confidence in her attention to detail - we just wish we could do it all again!!
Thank-you Hagley Hall and especially Tracey.
