We had our wedding here this September after both my husband and parents fell in love with the venue a year or so before whilst venue-hunting.

Lumley Castle provides the best wedding packages – which cover not only the food/dining related parts of a wedding, but even some centrepieces and top table flowers (and accommodation for the couple the night of the wedding too!)

Our coordinators were all we could ask for in terms of assistance, with brilliant communication. This meant our wedding planning was far from stressful at all. The day of the wedding was executed with perfection – everything was exactly how we expected, and better. Our family/guests had a wonderful time thanks to Alison’s spot-on organisation (even though she’d had two weddings already the day before!) Thank you so much once again for putting together such a fabulous wedding. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to organise a gorgeous wedding with minimal stress.
