    The South Causey hosted my daughter's wedding yesterday and Dean the wedding co-ordinator ensured the whole event went like a dream. We can't thank him and the team enough for all the hard work that must have gone into making the day go so well. It's a magical venue which gave us all so many lovely memories. What a brilliant start to Helen and Adam's married life. 11.07.22


    We had our wedding in The Durham Suite on the 9th July. Andrew our wedding coordinator was absolutely fantastic!! He really couldn't do enough for us, everyone commented on how great he was with everything. The food was absolutely amazing & if anyone had a issue or a problem, he was straight over to sort it out. A MASSIVE thank you to Andrew and the South Causey for making our day so so special.

    Thank you South Causey for our fantastic wedding 1st June in the Durham Suite. The venue and grounds are fabulous hence the booking! ..... but the praise has to be for the staff! Nothing is too much trouble and the little touches they add are dream making. Andrew you were a complete darling thinking of everything so we didn't have to. Forever grateful x

    I just wanted to say thank you to the whole team for my wedding day in the Old Barn 24.05.22. Particularly our wedding coordinator, Dean. He made me feel like a queen all day and made me feel at ease start to finish, and put up with my entire wedding party all day. Every member of staff from the girls that opened the doors for our entrance song to the receptionists really are Second to none!

    We had our wedding last Wednesday 18/05/22. We just had 7 people at our wedding including us, wow wow and more wow it was the most beautiful day The staff, the food ,the room and the wedding it was truly the most special day which was made perfect by every single member of staff.. thankyou to Jenny our wedding co ordinator and the wedding team. I could write so much more about our day, it was magical.

    On Saturday the 2nd of April 2022 we had our wedding. We were so pleased we chose the Farmhouse. WOW what a venue!!! From the planning through to the day everything has been so relaxed! Everyone involved has been so accommodating!! We had rooms booked out all over the venue and every single person had the best stay.

    I would recommend South Causey’s Old Barn as a wedding venue to anyone looking to get married as it is so beautiful. We had our wedding their on Saturday the 9th of April and it was more than I ever dreamed of. They helped me in decorating the venue exactly how I wanted it and everyone has commented on how amazing the day was.

    To Andrew & the wedding team, thank you for making our day so much more special, we knew as soon as we saw the venue that we had chosen the right place for us, and the team confirmed that even more, you all made the wedding process such a pleasure and put us both at ease. Andrew/Chris (haha) you were fantastic on our day, we couldn't have been given a better coordinator.
