It is now just over two months since our wedding day at Dartington Hall, and its fair to say, it has taken us this long to put into words just what the day, the venue and the people at Dartington Hall contributed to make it so unforgettable. 

Weddings are by no means an easy event to arrange, however, under the guidance from day one of Rebecca we were so looked after, so confident and made to feel so unique as a couple that the day reflected her superhuman efforts of coordination. She is always there for you, before during and after and with her at the helm, it is hard to see it as anything other than perfection. 

As a place to get married, most of the talking can be done with the looking. There is no where else quite like it in Britain, a setting and atmosphere unlike any other. Its a huge credit to the Dartington Hall Trust that this energy comes through in all of their staff and people that work there to ensure days like ours will never be forgotten. 

The food, arranged by Taje, is decadent, refined and all locally sourced, a superb achievement and the quality shines through in all. All of the staff on the day and into the evening were professional, courteous and excellently shadowed by the managers on site. Compliments have abounded in the thank you letters we have received as to the food, the staff and the running of the day which was, of course, faultless. 

Alongside this, we want to thank the army of grounds staff who make the hallowed grounds of Dartington Hall not just special for weddings, but day in day out all through the year. Our guests walked the grounds with relish and will always remember the views to this day. 

For our wedding in particular, there were certain elements that we requested, some changes to the normal lay out of the day. None of these were seen as obstacles, merely challenges that were not only accommodated but encouraged wholeheartedly. 

Combined, we could not have seen it any differently. We had an image, perhaps even a dream scenario of how the day would go. It was even better than we could have imagined, expectations usurped at every turn. 

Could we picture anywhere else to have celebrated our most special of days? No. Would we recommend Dartington Hall as a place to get married? In a heartbeat.
We wanted to write to say what a wonderful day we all had on Saturday. Wow! The location was perfect and looks amazing in the photos. Andrew and Sara had a perfect day, helped in part by the weather but your organisation made the day flow seamlessly. I've attached a couple of pictures for you. Thank you for everything.

I cannot put into words how grateful I am for all your help in organising our wedding! The venue was perfect, the staff were brilliant and the whole day was magical!

You are just what every bride needs! You kept me calm and took all the stress of the wedding day away! I am sorry if we were a bit rowdy at the end of the night! (One too many grenades...blame Alex the bar man!)
Thank you so so so much!
Sarah and Liam

I just wanted to let you know how much we loved our son and daughter-in-law's wedding last weekend Rob Gill and Caroline Tripp.

Everything went according to plan and they even got to have it outside - result!

I didn't really get to see you much, except bustling around sorting things out, but I just wanted to ask you to pass our thanks on to you and all your lovely staff.

I spoke a few times to the lovely Sarah in your office - she is amazing and so very friendly! All the office staff were very helpful and friendly and we felt so welcome from beginning to end.

I also wanted to mention all the staff in the background - because they were so very professional, they all just stayed unnoticed in the background.  As all of my kids have had jobs in hotels and retail over the years whilst in education, I know how hard they work and often get taken for granted by the public.  So I did take time out over the weekend to notice the hardworking backroom staff and they worked so very hard for us and did it extremely professionally.  I would like to mention the lovely girl serving the tea, coffee and truffles outside during the wedding - extremely professional, polite and quiet and yet when I started chatting with her, she was bright and happy and appeared to be really enjoying her job - lovely girl - as were all the staff.

Thanks once again for a most memorable occasion and please pass on our thanks to all your staff.

We had a fantastic day (despite the weather!), and would really like to thank everyone at Dartington so much for all their hard work.  Many of our guests commented on how well organised the day was and how great the food was.
We are looking forward to coming back to Dartington for a meal once it has all sunk in a bit more!
Thanks again,
Cat and Rob xxx
