Being an Interior Designer, it was always going to be near impossible to find the perfect venue but Lartington Hall blew me away from the moment I walked through the door. John and Shona have done a remarkable job with the renovation whilst preserving the character of the building. From our initial meeting to our big day John and Shona were a delight to work with… Our wedding exceeded our expectations on every level and we will be forever grateful to them and their outstanding team.
Lartington Hall really is the wedding venue dreams are made of. An incredible setting with a truly outstanding team.
We wanted somewhere which was understatedly different – not ‘in-your-face-quirky’. Lartington Hall is exactly that! It’s completely different to any wedding venue we seen. It has the essence of a grand stately home with a modern and fashionable interior. It exudes charm and sophistication. The exclusivity is an additional bonus – it is the ultimate wedding venue. Every time I think about our wedding venue, a huge grin appears on my face. It was perfect! Everything about it was amazing – even the toilets are beautiful! The staff were fantastic, John helped us plan everything, he was so attentive throughout the whole experience. We would recommend this venue ten times over – it had the most stunning interior, top-class service and delicious food!
Lartington Hall gave us butterflies. We went along to the venue with our parents for a first look around and left completely excited that our perfect venue existed! We had to get married there! Everything about the building and grounds was gorgeous and flawless, from the amazing hallway to the little decorative details in the bedrooms, you could tell how much thought and love Shona and John had put into Lartington. We also loved how we would have exclusive use of the hall so it would be more personal for us and our guests. Lartington was absolutely perfect from the minute we booked, all of the communications, visits, tastings and then the day. There was no stone left unturned and the day ran seamlessly. The team are perfectionists and we couldn’t recommend John, Shona and all the team there highly enough.

Lartington Hall oozes elegance and class whilst maintaining a cosy, friendly vibe. The décor is beautiful and you can tell each cushion, candlestick and vase has been considered before it was set down. The light is lovely there too, it is very dreamy. The building itself is breathtaking and the gardens were a lovely extra.
