Wedding Testimonials



Rachel & Greg Wood 10.04.2016

With regards to our day as a whole; not a single thing could have been more perfect!

Everyone enjoyed themselves, and complimented how everything ran smoothly with no “lulls” or “boring bits” as there often is at weddings.

Not a single member of staff could be faulted for anything at all; everyone was happy, friendly and always willing to help if it was needed. We certainly had no complaints and I’ve not heard a single bad thing said by any of the guests. Everyone was perfectly professional.

The food was outstanding. Even though the kitchen staff had a large number of people to cater for, the high standards were still there! Everything we ate was on par with what we experienced at our menu tasting, which is fantastic and mustn’t be easy to do! Most of the guests, us included, took great advantage of cocktail menu – how could we not?! Each wine that was provided as part of our wedding breakfast was also lovely and well received by everyone.

Our wedding coordinator, Nicole, was fabulous! Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was always there to help me and answer my (stupid) questions. Nicole made nothing seem like too much trouble – even when things were having to be changed regularly or exceptions were having to be made. She made everything about planning the wedding a lot less stressful and much easier than I anticipated! I couldn’t be more thankful to her!

Everything went exactly as we had discussed and arranged, not a single thing was wrong and everything was per our final meeting. Emma made sure that everything ran smoothly on the day and that everything was perfect – even though my instructions re: decorations weren’t too easy to follow, she made it look easy. We all had such a great day, it was fun and we wouldn’t change a thing. All the AYLI team are mostly responsible for that, and I cannot praise them enough!

Many thanks, Rachel Wood

 Rachel & Gary Jones 17.01.2016

“Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! It was everything we had planned for and wanted, we really wanted a cosy relaxed day which it was.  The venue looked amazing and the staff paid so much attention to detail setting out the room, the tables looked amazing and the kid’s area was great.  I was really pleased that the kids were able to have their own area and wander about because trying to get children to behave at a wedding is actually impossible!! The staff were great and the coordinator was so friendly and helpful.  The food and drink was great everyone loved it.  We would definitely recommend the venue to others it was a fantastic day.

Thank you – Rachel Jones x”

Thanks again and we look forward to visiting again – Nicola and Tracey.”

“It’s taken a while to write this review, but what a day we had! Everything went perfectly from the way our families were treated to the hot tea after dinner! We felt very well looked after. The service was just magical – we were looked after from the day we booked to the morning of the wedding. Our families still talk about this day nearly 1 year after it happened. Amazing food and drinks! Definitely the best place to get married in Newcastle. The first and only place we looked at. Thanks again guys!”

‘We are back from our honeymoon now and we had the best time both on our honeymoon and on our wedding day at AYLI. I just wanted to email you to say thank you so much for helping everything to go so smoothly on the day and to take all the stress out of our plans. The whole day went just as we wanted it to and everyone at the party had a really good time. Jess along with all the other staff were also extremely helpful on the day and also made sure that everything went smoothly. I will definitely recommend AYLI to other people as a venue for a party and look forward to returning there as a guest in the future!’

Mr & Mrs Morrison, 01/11/2014

‘I just wanted to say thank you to you, and Anna, and all your amazing staff for helping us have such a wonderful day last weekend. It was everything, and more, than we ever dreamed of! Your staff were so brilliant on the day, even replacing my sons ice cream when he decided he “hates red sauce!”. Such a fusspot. It hasn’t been easy planning a wedding from so far away, and I’m sure it was probably just as difficult for you! But you have been brilliant, and I’m so happy we decided to get married at AYLI. So thank you again, it’s been a truly magical experience.’
