Our style is quintessentially Northumberland with a modern touch, ideal for couples looking a venue that will suite a celebration for family and friends of any age. We believe that your wedding day should be personalised as much as possible which is why we encourage you to customise your drinks options and give your guests choices for their wedding breakfast.

“Congratulations on your engagement! We are so delighted that you have decided to celebrate your wedding in the northeast. This corner of the country is not only beautiful, but also spoiled for choice when it comes to your wedding. Our biggest piece of advice is to make a shortlist of venues and tour the northeast visiting a few of your favourites. Every wedding venue you visit will help add another piece of the puzzle as you learn what you want and do not want for your wedding experience. Eventually, one will slowly emerge as the venue you compare all others to; one will simply feel right. Regardless of where you choose to marry, we hope you enjoy the planning process and start your married life together at the wedding venue perfect for you. Happy wedding planning!” – Shotton Grange
