I couldn't find any objective Wedding Reviews of Lumley Castle when we were planning our day, so hopefully I can provide one for future Brides (& Grooms!)
A stunning venue for a Wedding of any size, we opted for an intimate day of only 17 guests, and despite 2 other Weddings on the same day, did not feel in anyway we were anything other than the number one priority.
Ben, who looked after us on the day was fantastic, really went out of his way to accommodate us and make sure that we were happy, he deserves a massive bonus! Also Sue, Sharon and Vicki who helped me getting ready (bit of a dress malfunction) they totally saved my day.
Food was lovely, well presented and all our guests commented that it was one of the best Wedding meals they'd had.
Now, I umm-ed and ahh-ed about the rating, because everything on the day was made to feel like nothing was a hassle and no one could do enough for us. Sadly, in the planning stage the communication, attention to detail and speed of delivery was not great and I was getting particularly apprehensive about how the day would turn out, but because Ben and his team were so great, I decided to go with the 5 stars, because they absolutely deserve it. If possible, ask for Laura as your Wedding Planner - she came through for us in the weeks running up to the Wedding when i was starting to get especially stressed!!
I stayed in a court yard room the night before - I did wonder of noise from a college party would keep me awake, but no issues and i had a great nights sleep. On the Wedding night, we stayed in a castle feature room, which was both quirky and comfortable
In general, my advice would be don't stress about your wedding day - all the stuff that seemed important isn't, as long as you get married! It's easy for me to say that now, but especially because of the way we were looked after on the day.
