We got married at Lumley Castle in August. From the very start we were incredibly well looked after, nothing was too much trouble, reception even organised taxis to pick up family coming over from Ireland. We held a murder mystery night before the wedding itself to make a weekend of it and the food was lovely, the acting hilarious and the bar bill at the end of the night surprisingly low.
On the day itself our wedding supervisors, Keith and Chris, ensured that everything ran smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. We opted for the banquet rather than the normal three course meal. I often worry with cooking en masse that the quality will suffer slightly but I couldn't have been more wrong. Everyine commentd on how lovely it was, as well as how friendly and helpful the staff were.
Another worry that I had was the fact that more than one wedding is held at the venue each day but we didn't once see anyone else, it was as though we had the place entirely to ourselves. If you are thinking about holding your wedding here I cannot recommend it highly enough. I constantly bombarded the wedding organisers with phone calls and questions and they were always really helpful and lovely.
Overall, a fantastic setting, great food, brilliant staff and a great atmosphere. Our friends and family still talk about how unusual and enjoyable the whole weekend was.
