“Everything we had hoped for and more”

“We had an absolutely fantastic wedding at As You Like It. We honestly could not of chose a more perfect venue.

The wedding day was everything we had hoped for and more. All of our guests enjoyed themselves and commented how wonderful the venue was.

On the day, all of the staff were very helpful and friendly, especially our Wedding Manager, Maddy, who ensured that the whole day ran smoothly. Everything went just as planned.

Both the food and drinks were fantastic and went down great. Many of our guests sampled the cocktails, and loved them!

Our wedding coordinator, Nicole, was amazing – I cannot thank her enough! She was great from the point of booking the venue right the way through to all the final details. She always responded promptly to my emails and was great at communicating with us. She was a pleasure the whole way through and could not of asked for anyone better.

It was truly a fantastic day and I would recommend the venue to anyone.”


Judith & Lee 19.11.2017

“Nicole – we just want to say a massive thank you to you, your staff and especially Maddy who not only made an amazing job of the room which exceeded all our expectations but kept me right throughout the day helping to calm my nerves.  No words can express how grateful and happy we were and what an amazing day we had.

We’ve been to a few weddings but dare I say it, mine was the best and it was down to the excellent service we’ve received, your hard working staff and their dedication, they put their all into ensuring everyone had a good time.  The service was impeccable.  Therefore can you please pass on our sincere thanks onto your team they truly are amazing and deserve credit for the job they did.

Much love Mr and Mrs Fisher x”

Denise & Mark 06.11.2017

“Just to say the biggest Thank You to you all at AYLI!  The staff were just perfect, everything was perfect!!  It went so smoothly just too quick!  The food was beautiful and so many people commented and said how perfect everything was!”

Chloe & Josh 03.11.2017

“The perfect choice for a winter wedding”

“Thank you so much for an unforgettable wedding day.  Stunning room (the Frangipani Suite), great service and seamless structure/organisation from the team (huge thanks to Maddy who was incredible, and of course Nicole who helped us to plan what was the best day of our lives).  Nicole deserves a medal!  It felt thoroughly well organised and Maddy in particular was a gem on the day.

We received a lot of compliments on the venue.  With guests having travelled from places like Cambridge, Essex and Scotland, they didn’t know what to expect, but were in awe of how magical the place felt.

The food was fab, too – as we were married at 4.00pm, we chose a hot fork buffet which was delicious – while the ‘Something Traditional’ drinks package was more than ample for our 80 guests.  Shout out to AYLI’s chosen DJ as well, who played our rather eclectic choices from death metal to club classics, and had people on the dance floor from 8pm ‘til 2am.  The whole thing was absolutely perfect for our 1930’s themed November wedding.  My husband and I cannot recommend this place enough – it was fabulous!”


Cathleen & Graeme 29.10.2017

“Our wedding went better than I ever could have expected!  The whole day was so smooth and seamless, I never even had to think!  We enjoyed every minute.  Everyone loved the venue and had an amazing time.  People thought that the venue was the perfect location for our wedding theme which was Halloween.  Everyone commented on how nice and intimate the ceremony was when the curtain was drawn and they were all blown away when it was opened in the evening to reveal a huge dance floor and live band!

Bailey was absolutely wonderful, she made is feel completely comfortable and at-ease right from the moment we met her the day before the wedding.  All the staff were lovely and attentive!  Nicole was amazing in helping us plan the big day and Bailey helped us execute it perfectly!  It could not have gone better, I truly believe that!  I would recommend As You Like It to everyone”


Natalie & Andy 28.10.2017

“Nicole – we don’t even know where to begin we have so much to thank you and all of the As You Like It team for! We had the most amazing day on Saturday, way beyond anything we could ever have imagined! The venue, the food, the service were all absolutely perfect and we were totally blown away by it all!

We received compliment after compliment from our guests on every part of our day – they thought the room was stunning and the food was some of the best they had ever had!

Thank you so much for everything you have done for us over the last 2 years, our big day wouldn’t have been the same if it hadn’t been for your help.  I’ve felt so relaxed and confident knowing everything was in such good hands!

Please also pass on a massive thank you from us to Maddy! She was amazing on the day and ensured everything ran so smoothly.  Finally please thank all of the bar and waiting staff, they were all fantastic and so friendly! We really couldn’t of asked for anything more!”

Carris & Tony 07.10.2017

“It was an absolutely amazing day.  The venue was beautiful and the staff were helpful, kind, and really gave 100%. They were brilliant! Maddy our wedding coordinator was fantastic!  Everybody has said it was the best wedding they have ever been too. They thought the venue was incredible and very ‘us’.

100% perfect – it really was the perfect day. We want to do it all again!”


Abbie & James 15.09.2017

Everything was just perfect, everyone commented on how amazing the venue was, how tasty the food was and what a great day it was for us both. It was a great time for all age groups, all the old people had a great time as well. Service was spot on, I wish we could do it all over again. Will be returning to the restaurant and recommending to everyone!”


Louise & Simon 27.08.2017

“We just wanted to send a quick e mail to say thank you to you both and all of the staff for all of the hard work before and during (and after) our wedding. It really was the most perfect day and there’s not a thing that we could fault with the venue or organisation at all. We’ve had so many compliments on the venue, it was just perfect. We’re still a bit overwhelmed by it all but we just wanted to say a quick thank you. Nicole, you were great with all of the organising beforehand and Maddy, you made the day run so smoothly and looked after us so well.

Everything was perfect – we had the best day ever and our guests really seemed to enjoy it too, we’ve had loads of positive comments about how lovely the venue was. In terms of arrangements beforehand Nicole has been great. On the day Maddy and the staff were absolutely fantastic too – they were all absolutely lovely and Maddy was a star.  They made the day run so smoothly and all put us at ease throughout. They all worked so hard, especially Maddy & Yez!  The staff made it so that there was zero stress for us and we just had to enjoy the day.

Our guests loved the cocktails – the drinks package and all of the food were also all perfect.  We can’t praise the staff, service and venue highly enough.”


Hailey & Richard 18.08.2017

“Our day was so much more than we ever thought it would be.  All of our guests had an amazing time and all loved the beautiful venue.  The service on the day was brilliant from all members of staff – food was fantastic!

The drinks were lovely and cocktails that people had were amazingly good.  Nicole has been amazing helping us plan our wedding.  We would also like to say a huge thank you to Maddy, she looked after us the day of our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic.  Everything ran as smoothly as it could have and she kept us both calm before the big I Do’s. She really did make what was a fantastic day a whole lot better and made us feel so special.”


Ashley & Aaron 14.08.2017

“Thanks Nicole! And thank you so much for all your help with the planning!  You’ve been such a help and so lovely to work with!  You’ve made the whole planning experience so easy and stress free!  Couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator! Thank you for everything!”


Rebecca & John 15.07.2017

“Our wedding day was great, we could not fault one thing about As You Like It.  The staff were excellent on the day, especially Maddy who made sure everything was running smoothly, we could not thank her enough.

The food was excellent and all the guests commented on how great each course was.

We were very happy, Nicole was excellent at helping us plan our day and kept in touch regularly.  Everything went perfectly!”


Abbie & Joshua 14.07.2017 

“We had our wedding here on the 14th of July and honestly had the most wonderful time. Nicole, who dealt with the plans of our wedding was extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble for her and the other staff in general are also very pleasant.  We chose this venue because of the decor, it’s rustic, beautiful and elegant.  Everyone commented on how lovely the frangipani room looked.  The food here is exceptional and is worth the five stars alone and their drinks menu is superb, you would not be disappointed eating here, everybody loved the food we served.  We had the most perfect day, thank you for making it so special for us, we will definitely be back many times in the future for a meal.”

Amy & Andrew 17.06.2017

“The whole day was amazing – As You Like It was fantastic.  Everyone cannot get over how perfect the day was, down to the room, food and atmosphere. It was a very relaxing, enjoyable day. We had an amazing time.

Staff were also amazing, Nicole was on hand anytime I needed her leading up to the wedding, she was very friendly and made planning so much easier for us.  Maddy and her team did a brilliant job on the day, we had nothing to worry about.

Food was amazing too – everyone thoroughly tucked in!

We cannot thank everyone enough for making our day so special and memorable. We had a blast!  We would recommend AYLI to anyone for their wedding venue”


Caroline & Bill 10.06.2017

“Nicole – we wanted to drop you a note to thank you for everything in the run up to our wedding.  Saturday was beyond all of our expectations, it truly was perfect from start to finish.  The staff were amazing!  Maddy was brilliant and everyone who worked alongside her, first class”


Andrew & Glen 13.05.2017

“Nicole & Maddy – we just wanted to drop you a note to say WOW!!! What an amazing day everyone had, and that was largely down to you both and all the wonderful staff at AYLI.  We had the most amazing day from beginning to end and the whole thing went like clockwork – there would have been nothing we would have changed or done differently – complete perfection in all areas!  We enjoyed every moment, from the fun and excitement we all had setting the room up to the very end when we got in the taxi home.

We both felt so comfortable and it was almost like you and the staff were part of the wedding rather than the people looking after us – you all felt like friends that were just helping out!  So, once again, a HUGE thank you for making our day so magical!”


Natalie & Eddie 29.04.2017

“We had the best day ever, everything went perfect and it was much more than we could have ever imagined. We just want to do it all over again!!  All the food was delicious and presented lovely. The cocktails and canapés went down an absolute treat, a lot of people commenting on what a nice surprise it was. The staff were incredible, all very professional and aware of everything that was going. A big huge thank you to Maddy for keeping the day in check, she was lovely and very informative. I just want to thank yourself again for all your help and advice you gave along the way and the great hospitality we received on our tasting sessions and our final meeting.  Thank you so much again for a perfect day!”


Faye & Matt 21.04.2017

“Nicole, Thank you so much for everything you did.  The day could not have gone more perfectly!!  We tried to take as much in as we could – it went so fast.  The staff were absolutely amazing through the whole day and Maddy was brilliant.  She had the full day running like clockwork!! Thank you so much to all involved for making our day amazing!!!!”

Mr and Mrs Docherty 15.04.2017

“Hi Nicole,

Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you and the team for everything you did to make our wedding day perfect.

Firstly, the organisation was excellent. The whole day went so smoothly. There wasn’t one single issue throughout, everything was just perfect. The staff were consistently helpful, friendly and attentive, not only to Craig and I but all of our guests

The day was everything we hoped for and more. We managed to speak to every guest during the day and after, and every single one of them complimented the venue and the team- but mainly the exceptional food and drinks. When we had the tasting we both couldn’t believe that that same quality of food could be served to 56 people but it definitely was! We are so glad we added the extra sorbet course, everyone commented on how fabulous it was.

Special thanks to you, Nicole, for your hard work during the build up to our big day. Nothing was a bother to you, even though I’m aware of the amount of weddings you have to plan, you made us feel like ours was the only one. Thank you.

Another special thanks, if you could pass this on, to Maddy, our wedding manager for the day. She was absolutely fantastic from us dropping everything off to picking it all up the next day. She had the full day down to a tee! I felt so calm and comfortable all day as nothing was ever a problem or a rush, thanks to Maddy.

Also, the team who set the room for the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. It was all above and beyond what I could have hoped for!

I know this was my wedding, but this is the best wedding venue I’ve ever been too! And all of the guests have said this too! It was a truly amazing day!

Thank you so much.

Annie and Craig Docherty”

 Leilany & Joanna 11.04.2017

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of myself and Joanna!  It was such an amazing day and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

A huge thank you to Maddy as well who handled the day amazingly well.  We both really appreciate it ”

 Mr & Mrs Vose 01.04.2017

“We had a fantastic day – everything was excellent!!

Everyone loved it and there were lots of comments about how nice the venue was.

The service on the day was exceptional.  Maddy was fantastic, worked ever so hard all day and went over and beyond to ensure that all our needs were catered for.  Please can you pass on our sincere thanks to her.  Alex also worked very hard and was an absolute pleasure.  The rest of the waiters and bar staff were also very friendly and generally very good

The food was excellent and received lots of compliments from our guests.  Nicole was very good, thorough and communicated everything to us very well.  Everything on the day was as we discussed with her so again, thanks to her for that”

 Mr & Mrs Oliver 31.03.2017

“Myself & Zsofia would just like to thank you all at AYLI for the hard work you have all done in making our wedding day a special day. Everything has been perfect and our day was one we shall not forget.

If you could pass our thanks on to Maddie & Alex and all of the staff who assisted in our big day that would be much appreciated.

Once again a big thank you to you all.


Paul & Zsofia x”

 Mr & Mrs Houston 25.03.2017

“My wedding day was exactly what I had hoped for and more!  My guests had a fabulous day.  Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was.

The staff couldn’t do enough for myself and my guests.  The food exceeded expectations.  It was one of the highlights of the day.  My guests are still talking about the exceptionally high standard.  The night time good was superb too.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend As You Like It as a wedding venue.  Thank you for a lovely day – Stephanie & Jeff”

 Mr & Mrs Williamson 04.03.2017

“Our wedding day was everything we had hoped for and more.  Our guests loved the venue, they described it as fun, quirky, beautiful and a hidden little treasure. (Especially our family from London who had never been or heard of AYLI before).  They were all very impressed!

All the staff were smiley and attentive.  They even made a fuss of us when we dined with you the day before.  We brought our bridesmaids who hadn’t seen the venue before for lunch on Friday and all the staff made us feel special and gave us time to show our bridesmaids around.

The food was first class and of a high standard.  One reason why we like to visit AYLI.  Maddie was lovely and couldn’t do enough for us.”

 Mr & Mrs Cooper 24.02.2017

“Nicole, I would just like to thank you and all the staff for making our day amazing, I honestly couldn’t thank you all enough for making our day like our own little fairy-tale. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue looked and all the little finishing touches that you and your team covered, it was honestly magical! Thank you again for all your hard work.

Best wishes – Natasha x ”

 Mr & Mrs Matuszewski 11.02.2017

“Yesterday I got married to the love of my life in the most perfect, intimate and romantic venue! I cannot put into words how brilliant and amazing your staff were to make our day the best it could ever be. Your staff made sure everything was perfect and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. If anyone wants to get married in a place that will hold a special place in your heart, then as you like it is just for you!”

 Mr & Mrs Leitch 07.01.2017

“First of all thank you. We had the most amazing day, it went like clockwork from beginning to end. The coordinator on the day was outstanding, please give her a huge personal thank you from both myself and David, she was amazing keeping everything together. She deserves a medal. The rest of the staff couldn’t do enough either and the amount of comments I have had yesterday and today saying just that is proof they are a fab team. Everyone is raving about the venue as a lot of guests were from Scotland and they all said it was so stunning. The food was fabulous and again we can only praise the staff. Thank you for making it such a breath-taking day to remember.
Nicole went through everything in detail at our meeting prior to the day and reassured me as I was quite nervous about it working, she was right, thanks her too, she got it so right.
I would recommend the venue at every opportunity. Truly wonderful. I have had messages saying it was the best wedding they have been to by several people today. Thank you everyone
Kind regards, Sharron & David”

 Mr and Mrs Crosby 28.12.2016

“Nicole, we can’t thank you enough for everything you did on the run up to the wedding, and on the day. You have given us something so special, the perfect wedding, exactly as we’d thought of it – relaxed, so much fun and everyone including us had a totally amazing day which we’ll remember forever.

Everyone has told us what a fabulous time they had, we really can’t thank you enough.

I have been and will be recommending AYLI to everyone I know! Everyone had an amazing day, and they all loved the venue. Even during the reception drinks following the ceremony people commented on how great they thought it was and that was before they’d had the full experience!!

The staff were fantastic – everyone we saw was smiley and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I’d especially like to thank our barman who was an absolute star and pleasure to meet and everyone loved him!

The food was fantastic – we knew what to expect as we’d had a tasting session, but the guests were totally thrilled. The canapes went down a storm and the meal itself was perfect. The portion sizes were huge!

Working in marketing I often run events and know the time and effort that goes into everything (and it also made me nervous that I wasn’t in control of this particular event myself!) but Nicole has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and get to know – she has given us exactly the wedding we wanted and we can’t thank her enough for all her hard work. I was totally relaxed and confident about the wedding running up to the day, and that was purely because I knew Nicole was there.

I’m going to get a table booked for our anniversary – there’s nowhere I’d rather be!!”

 Mrs & Mrs Walton 12.11.2016

“It was an incredible day, we enjoyed ourselves from start to finish. We’ve had lots of positive comments from guests, and they all thought the venue was brilliant – quirky and unusual, but also cosy and welcoming, and very ‘us’.

The staff, in particular our wedding manager on the day, were very friendly and helpful. The team went above and beyond to realise what we had planned for our day. The room looked beautiful!”

 Mr & Mrs Ridley 20.10.2016

“Nicole – Our wedding day on Thursday was THE BEST day ever! We can’t thank you and the team enough for how well it all went.

Nothing was a problem or an issue. Maddie was a little star and looked after us so very well as did all the staff. The food was beautiful and loads of it too! They even made a few sandwiches for my very elderly Aunt and Uncle who are very old fashioned and aren’t keen on trying new food so didn’t want any buffet. They were very thrilled when a tray of sandwiches were brought out for them instead. Please pass on our sincere thanks to the team.

Lots of love, The Ridleys”

 Mr & Mrs Devitt 02.10.2016

“Nicole, just wanted to say a huge thank you for making mine and Amy’s day so special.

We had a fantastic time and so did all of our guests everyone enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, so thanks for sticking by our ‘not so traditional’ wedding day.

Thanks again”

 Mr & Mrs Spoors 01.10.2016

“We had a wonderful day at As You Like It for the wedding, thank you so much.

Our guests loved the venue and we got huge compliments on the food! All of the staff members were friendly and helpful, neither us, nor any of our guests had bad service. We felt well organised and looked after throughout the day. Madeleine was brilliant, super efficient and with a great sense of humour. She looked after us so well on the day and was genuinely friendly and happy for us. She’s a credit to you.

Nicole was very helpful and organised. She showed us lots of options and helped me tailor the layout of Frangipani to exactly how I had pictured it when I walked down the aisle. I felt that the day was catered to us and she helped us make it personal despite the fact that there are many weddings there every week.”

 Mr & Mrs Brown 29.09.2016

“On behalf of me and my wife, we would both like to thank As You Like it and their amazing staff for making our wedding day so faultless! We couldn’t have asked for a better day, the room was superbly set up, the food was amazing and the hospitality was by far THE best I’ve had anywhere! A massive shout out to Dale and Maddy who were running the day and blended in so well – they were like another guest. Thanks Adam & Amy x ”

 Mr & Mrs Warden 28.08.2016

“Hi Nicole, I wanted to write to give you our sincere thanks for all of your help, support and amazing organisational skills in the run up to our wedding. We had a fantastic day and the venue was perfect!

I also wanted to make a special mention for your team on the day, Maddie was absolutely fantastic and helped us so much, keeping us on schedule and ensuring everything was perfect for us and our guests. The rest of the bar and support staff were also amazing and if you could please pass on our thanks to them all, I would be most grateful.

Thank you again for making our day fabulous!”

 Mr and Mrs Renno 26.08.2016

“Our wedding day was fantastic from start to finish. We cannot thank Emma enough for everything she did on the day, both her and all the other staff were amazing.

The venue decoration was perfect and exactly what we requested. Special mention to the girls behind the bar too (sorry I don’t know their names) they were excellent with our 5 year old son and also made sure they came to say goodbye when finishing their shift which was lovely.

Emma made us all feel at ease as soon as we met her and I am so grateful she was part of our day. I really can’t praise her enough.

Our guests loved the venue and all had a fantastic day. We have received so many compliments about our day and really feel that As You Like it was the perfect venue for us. The selection of drinks and cocktails was fantastic and went down well with all of our guests.

Food on the day was amazing, again we didn’t have a single complaint from anyone all of our guests enjoyed the food and felt well catered for and all staff members were friendly and attentive.

All details, communications and meetings leading up to our date were also great.

Overall we had the perfect day and we are thankful that we chose As You Like It. Please pass on our thanks again to Emma and other staff members working that day. They helped to make an already amazing day even better.”

 Mr & Mrs Donnalley 14.08.2016

“We had an amazing day! Our wedding planner Nicole was great and we couldn’t thank our wedding coordinator (Emma who we had on the day) enough! She was fantastic and made sure everything ran smoothly! The food was great and we all had a cocktail which was lovely.

I’d definitely recommend venue to anyone wanting to get married!”

“We had a fabulous time on the wedding day and are so very pleased we picked As You Like It for our venue. The day itself ran really smoothly and everyone commented on what a lovely day and chilled atmosphere there was throughout. The service on the day was great and Emma was lovely and attentive. The final details meeting etc. with Nicole was an absolute pleasure. She really put us (me) at ease when I felt completely disorganised and made me felt a lot more together about everything.

We absolutely loved our day and couldn’t be more grateful for everything that was done to ensure our wedding was perfect.

We’d like to thank everyone who worked to make our day fabulous, and would like to particularly mention the waiting staff who were super friendly and helpful throughout.”

Kind regards, Kate & Steven”

 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

“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”

“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!’

‘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.’
