Doxford Hall celebrates 200 years with special gifts for couples
06 Apr 2018
Built in 1818, Doxford Hall celebrates both its bi-centenary and a decade of hosting stylish weddings as a luxury country house hotel, this year. And the team at the Georgian manor house are giving couples who marry in 2018 a variety of bonus gifts to mark the anniversary
Dreamy, romantic and photogenic are the perfect ingredients for any wedding venue. Add formal gardens, a manicured lawn, plus a yew tree maze to the mix, and you have a gorgeous country house backdrop.
One venue that ticks all these boxes is Doxford Hall, which celebrates two milestones this year and wants couples who marry in 2018 to share in this special anniversary.
The Northumbrian Georgian manor house, which was built in 1818, is marking both its bi-centenary and a decade of hosting stylish weddings as a luxury country house hotel.
To celebrate, couples marrying this year can enjoy a bonus gift of the month. For example, in October, an extra course will be added ‘on the house’ to the wedding breakfast; while in November, each guest will receive a complimentary glass of prosecco.
Crafted from mellow stone, Doxford Hall was designed by sought-after architect John Dobson and is set in 10 acres of private grounds. On top of stunning looks and period elegance, the hall has been awarded four red stars and is the only venue in Northumbria with this crème de la crème AA rating.
New for this year is the provision of a bridal pampering suite – dedicated to the bride and her entourage from 7am on the big day. It includes breakfast, ‘elevenses’ with bubbles, and a fun atmosphere to prepare for the wedding ahead.
There is a reception room for all types of wedding, from an intimate affair to a full-scale celebration. The Flower Room is ideal for a ceremony of up to 20. By contrast, the Kennedy Room is an elegant ballroom which accommodates up to 200 guests.
Other rooms include the George Runciman suite, with its grand fireplace and elaborate chandeliers; the Library, with superb garden views and stained-glass decorative ceiling light; the light-filled Northumberland Room, with chinoiserie period detailing and pretty garden views; and the oak-panelled Frank Henry Mason, perfectly suited to a candlelit reception dinner.
The venue offers bespoke flexible winter and midweek packages. Or you can celebrate in style and enjoy exclusive use of the whole estate for your special day. Packages and prices can be discussed over afternoon tea.
And to ensure exclusivity for each couple, Doxford Hall has a policy of hosting only one wedding per day.
