"Now that the wedding vibes have settled, I wish to take this opportunity to thank you both immensely in supporting us deliver Umar and Sameera's wedding celebrations at the Devonshire Dome. It was truly a wonderful and a memorable day and we couldn't have asked for more. Everyone was overwhelmed by the grandeur of the Dome, and the stage and the centre pieces brought the place to life. Although Sameera had, both me and my wife did not have a clue how the stage was going to look like but it went beyond our expectations, the whole area looked spectacular. Guests are still complimenting us of the day. They said it was a wedding celebration like no other, great atmosphere, venue and great food. Everyone was joyful, interactive and felt free roaming around the venue. Like I mentioned, me, my wife and Sameera could not have delivered it without your support. You responding to my emails within a day is a credit to your customer service. You have been very accommodating and flexible to our needs."

Ibrahim & Aisha Desai - 29th September, 2022

"From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for being a part of our journey. Christine, from our very first interaction with you, you've been amazing. You always got back to my emails within minutes, never a delay on your end. Our first time visiting the Dome, you knew we travelled a long way and that the Dome may not have been a suitable option for us but regardless you spent time with us and treated us as though we’d already chosen Devonshire Dome as our wedding venue. You didn't hesitate in answering our questions and had so much knowledge to share with Uzair about the history and architecture. You treated us with the utmost respect which meant a lot to us. As soon as we left, we knew we wanted to get married at the Dome. You spoke to our parents with so much care and answered any of their queries, even when you were on holiday! I'm still waiting on the professional pictures to come through, can't wait to share them with you! Faramore Photography (Farah and Moe) were our photographers on the day, Farah and Moe got married at the Dome in 2014 and both send their regards. Tom, you treated me with so much care. Calling the day before to check in meant the world to me. You kept me calm on the day when no one else was around. You checked in on my dad and guests. You made sure everything was in order before, during and after the event. It gave me so much comfort knowing I could put my trust in you to keep the show running. Devonshire Dome is more than just a dry hire venue. We wouldn't have been able to call it our wedding day without both of yours and the team's support. The Devonshire Dome team made our dream a reality. Thank you for everything. We’re forever grateful to have had the opportunity to get married at such a grand venue. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you both!"

Lubna and Uzair - 10th September, 2022

"We'd like to extend a huge thank you to yourself and your team for making our day so special. The venue was incredible and made the perfect backdrop for our wedding. Thank you for being so lovely and accommodating with us throughout the whole process, it's greatly appreciated and made our wedding experience so much better."

Yousuf and Afsheen - 4th June, 2022

"Following our wedding on the 21st of May we just wanted to write to express our sincere gratitude for all your help both leading up to and on the day. From start to finish, you have made the process seamless. This has hugely helped to share the burden on our heads of planning such a large event! Christine, right from the start you were approachable even during my frantic call many months ago when our previous venue really let us down. We especially appreciate staff going the extra mile to ensure that both our family and our own visions were executed. Tom, special thanks go to you for consistently going above and beyond throughout this process. You stayed well beyond when you were supposed to and even came on Sunday to help us clear up. We didn’t expect any of this from a venue and we are eternally grateful for what yourselves and the team did for us on that day. You worked brilliantly amongst our other vendors to the point where even if there was any hiccups, it was handled with such discretion by your team that it didn’t impede on our day in any way. Thank you both again for the wonderful service. You both truly are a credit to the team at the dome and it was fantastic to meet and work alongside you both in making our dream come true!"

Dr Shasiharan Sathanandan (Haran) & Dr Aarti Mohindra - 21st May, 2022

"We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for allowing us to use the Devonshire Dome for our very special day last weekend. You and your team were absolutely fantastic and we could rest easy knowing that we could rely on you all in making the day run smoothly. Thank you for accommodating us and allowing us to drop off drinks and favours the weekend before and allowing us to spend as much time as needed in the venue the night before the wedding day. All of our guests absolutely loved the venue and we have only heard compliments on how beautiful it is. We will definitely be recommending your services and venue to future brides and grooms. Thank you also for accommodating us after all the date changes and being brilliant with getting back to us so swiftly in responses, even when you were away! We are so pleased we chose the Devonshire Dome to hold our wedding event and had such great people who were there to support us throughout the whole organisation process. Thank you once again for everything you have done for us in making our event perfect and we wish you all the best in planning more events moving forwards!"

Janki & Ram - 2nd November, 2021

"You have been absolutely wonderful and if I had to recommend a wedding venue in the north, I would always recommend the Devonshire Dome. Not just because the venue itself is stunning but because you and the wider team made this the most seamless organisation possible. From the very beginning, just from my enquiry, your professionalism and positive, kind attitude was enough to convince me to book. You and the team have gone above and beyond any of my expectations! I mean, who else can give me plasters for my blistered feet, sew a button onto my husband's top and pull off a Mac yellow eyeshadow!!! You had everything covered! Thank you so much for remaining patient through the many changes I sprung upon you, for being kind enough to loan me centrepieces for the ladies night and the Mehndi night. You truly did more to support me than anyone else throughout this whole planning and event. You were my counsellor when I was stressed out, reassured me when I questioned my own taste and were just so calm. What a wonderful team you implemented for me on the day. I don’t know how Hannah and Claire remained so calm with the number of times I called their names out and they managed to pull off even the strangest requests I had that day! All whilst smiling non stop. All together, you are a fantastic team. Thank you for making it so easy for me when planning everything and thank you for always saying yes."

Kiran Farhan-Khan - 2nd March, 2020

"Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. You have been so helpful since the first time we came to see you about the venue, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. The day went smoothly and Claire was there whenever I needed her. The venue looked absolutely gorgeous, the guests were in awe!"

Sobiya and Zain - 3rd August, 2019

“The Devonshire Dome was an absolutely fantastic venue for our wedding. Christine was brilliant in helping us to plan our special day, the chef was creative and flexible in creating a tailored menu for us and the food was delicious - our guests had nothing but good things to say and it was exactly what we wanted! Clare and the team were so efficient on the day and really left us with nothing to worry about. The venue itself looked amazing and is such a unique and beautiful space. Our thanks go to all of the team who helped us to have the most perfect and memorable day. We would absolutely recommend the Devonshire Dome to anyone who is considering it for a wedding or event, and we just wish we could do it all again!”

Heather and Sam Thrippleton - 29th May, 2019

"Myself and Mukesh would like to thank you and your amazing team for everything you did for our wedding. Everyone was so efficient and professional, even my family were commenting on how hands on everyone was. I have been one of the lucky stress free brides because of how much you all focused on every small detail."

Sharon Roda - 20th October, 2018

Omar - 5th November, 2018

"Unbelievable setting for an unbelievable day. Christine and Clare helped make the day what it was and helped cement our vision for all the finer details on our big day. We really felt like it was 'our' event to work together to make happen and all the hard work paid off. We've now got memories to cherish forever!"

Navneet Dhillon - 1st September, 2018

Meena and Aran

“The Devonshire Dome is an exceptional building and a beautiful location for a wedding reception. Christine was always available from start to end and her commitment in ensuring everything ran smoothly was definitely reassuring. The venue is definitely a wow factor - all guests were amazed by the architecture once the room was decorated. I would definitely recommend this venue without a second thought.”

“Thank you for all your hard work, advice and guidance during our wedding planning and preparations. Your help ensured we had our dream wedding and a wonderful day to remember. We really did appreciate everything you did for us. Thank you."

Mr and Mrs Mason Tonks

“Thank you so much - without you I really doubt the wedding would have been as smooth as it was. You made sure everything ran perfectly, and our guests were impressed with the venue and how organised everything was. We had the best day. We will definitely be recommending the Devonshire Dome. Everything was great - the parking facilities, the caterers loved the kitchen, the endless number of rooms you provided our guests with to get changed, the restaurant to use as a holding room. The staff were amazing. Thank you again for running our big day for us.”

Chet and Pri

“From the initial booking of the venue, right through to picking up all our belongings after the event, the service exceeded our expectations. Christine’s expertise, confidence to question and approachability was more than we could have asked for The food was perfect with all our guests commenting on the quality. The bar staff were efficient and the venue was prepared to perfection. We both have high standards when it comes to customer service and this was by far the best we have experienced. Please pass our thanks on to Christine, Clare, Mike and the team for making our day so special for us.”

Sarah Kerry and Gareth Morgan

"Hi all Hope you're all well, apologies for this late email, the aftermath of the wedding is the worst bit! Lots of international guests to wave off at the airport and an upside-down house to tip back up! However, we really would just like to say a massive THANK YOU for absolutely everything. You guys have been the best we have worked with throughout the whole wedding (in fact ever !) No issues, no hassle, no miscommunication, no negativity, no awkwardness , no ANYTHING but pure kind hearted genuine people & support! You were just AMAZING honestly! All of you that are a part of the Dome, from the front house to management you are all friendly, approachable, polite and never say NO to anything. From the start to when we came for a viewing to the execution of the main day, it's been so organised, professional and easy! Christine, you sold the venue at the very first meet, after travelling the distance and a little edgy, our first meet with you confirmed it was worth it! It's one of the biggest comforts you look for and need during this phase, knowing your in trustworthy & good hands. So, thank you once again. We are very grateful from the bottom of our hearts and thank you for making the dream come true. Once the professional photos come in, we will be sure to send you some across and tag you on the gram! Hope to see you soon. Lots of love and best wishes."
