THE festive season is a time many people use to pop the question.

So it’s no surprise that Slaley Hall is hosting a wedding fair this weekend, to help those newly engaged couples start to plan their big day.

The fair, which takes place on Sunday from 11am, will showcase what Slaley Hall’s wedding team can offer.

It will also feature a range of recommended suppliers, including Durham wedding cake specialist Burnett 4 Cakes, who will be on hand with free samples.

Slaley Hall’s dedicated wedding co-ordinators will also be available on the day to help anyone who has either already booked, or those still searching for a venue and finishing touches.

The former stately home-turned hotel is one of the most popular wedding venues in the district, and will be decked out in all it’s glory this Sunday as it attempts to wow prospective customers.

In 2017 the hotel saw a £20,000 investment to refurbish the venue, including landscaping of the gardens and the restoration of the outdoor pagoda.
