We had our wedding here a few months ago and we cannot describe how unforgettable the day was, thanks to the beautiful venue and the unbelievably helpful staff. Ana was phenomenal! From day one, she put us and our families at ease and she was always at the end of a phone call/email to make sure our wedding planning experience went as smoothly as possible. Addington Palace itself was phenomenal and that chandelier was featured in many of our photos! We made use of every nook and cranny for our special day and were profoundly thankful for the memorable day, that Addington Palace and its staff gave us.

My son and now daughter in law got married at Addington Palace towards the end of March. We had a beautiful day and made use of all the fabulous rooms available to us. The venue is majestic and full of character and the grand staircase is amazing. The building really is a photographer's dream! Sean was particularly helpful, full of customer empathy and very ready to answer all of our queries. He was present in the background on the day of our event which was comforting to us.

Great venue and events team! I held my wedding here in November of this year (2021). The wedding planning was accelerated as we only had three months to organise. Ana and Sean were fantastic in answering queries and generally being accommodating. The venue was perfect for our wedding as we were able to use the different spaces for our guests. I am so pleased with how everything turned out.
