Amazing day
The wedding coordinators were fantastic and very responsive throughout the day, I hardly had to speak to them, not one issue was had. Would highly recommend a wedding here to anyone who is looking and newly engaged. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and how stunning the rooms were. Our wedding photos are beautiful, the venue really made it!

The best - the wedding of our dreams.
We had our wedding at beamish hall 22/08/2022 and couldn’t be any more thankful for the service we received. Right from booking our wedding to the day itself - everything was perfect, the wedding of our dreams!

Perfect day
We requested an outdoor weather, obviously weather depending. The wedding organisers came to me 20 minutes prior to say we had a risk or showers but gave me the option to be inside or out. I went with the risk of outside and the ladies dried down the seats once more and the full day was perfect. Nothing was to much trouble and everything flowed so well. I had no worries or issues throughout and would 100% recommend Beamish hall to everyone. My family and friends commented on the atmosphere and nobody had been to an outdoor wedding. All of which said. It felt like we were in a different country. The food was great. Served fast and hot. The following morning I woke up missing afew of my personal items as I just put them down on tables. Spoke to reception and everything had been placed in one room the following morning. They even found my daughter bracelet lying around. I honestly couldn’t of had a better day thanks to the serve and staff at Beamish! I came away feeling so emotional with how perfect my day has gone.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

No two weddings are ever the same, which is incredibly exciting and why we absolutely love what we do! It would be impossible to choose just one individual wedding to label as ‘the best’ as they have all been wonderfully brilliant in their own way! What’s most important to us as a venue, is that each wedding is the BEST version of what each couple envisages it to be, with a little added Beamish Hall sparkle of course! Personally, for me, I think the best bits are created by the simple things; that first look, the butterflies and nerves, a room bursting with love and laughter! It’s those priceless moments that create precious memories to cherish forever❤

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Try to enjoy the process and take time to catch your breath and assess what’s most important to you. Wedding planning is honestly one of the most crazy, stressful and emotional experiences you’ll ever have!! There will be moments you’ll absolutely love, and others will drive you to despair – you won’t believe us right now, but we promise you’ll actually miss it once it’s over. Our friendly team are here to help! No question is too silly, no request too random, and we’ll be on hand to celebrate and cry with you along the way. Pour yourself a glass of wine, run a nice hot bath with the salts and Yankee candle we’ll give you during booking (it was a strategic move 🤣) and RELAX… we’ve got this!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We have witnessed so many unique and personal touches –and all completely different. We’ve had furry family members visit the hotel during drinks receptions ranging from an albino hamster, adorable puppies, Lucy the Llama, even a horse!! We’ve welcomed arrivals via helicopter, motorbike, Lamborghini, or a Jurassic Park jeep! Everything from grand gestures, to bespoke sentimental touches such as a memory table or seat dedicated to a loved one no longer with us. We love to hear your ideas and to experiment with new things. Anything really is possible, and we’ll work closely with you to bring your vision to life.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic Elegant Fun Breath-taking Enchanted

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many beautiful backdrops within our grounds and in our lovely function rooms, but one of our personal favourites has to be our beautiful outdoor woodland swing. It’s extremely popular with our couples, guests and the little ones, and makes for some really fun and hilariously memorable snaps!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

On a wedding day we believe everyone should be made to feel like a celebrity so that makes it incredibly difficult to differentiate between the two. But to answer your question, yes! We have been extremely fortunate to have had many a famous face at Beamish Hall, both holding and attending weddings. Of course that’s sensitive information so we aren’t about to name drop - sorry!

What’s your favourite canapé?

For us, it’s got to be either the baked red pepper and parmesan tartlet or the chocolate dipped strawberries – yum!! These go down a treat and make the perfect accompaniment to your drinks reception.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Ooh, another tough question. While at work, I love it if someone orders a Great British grazing station as chef always makes a little extra for the team and they’re delicious! My ability at home is a little less extravagant and so I’d probably go for something like cheesy Doritos and sour cream dip. Mmm all this talk of food is making me hungry!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

I mean, just look at the pictures – we’re a pretty impressive building and have the perfect balance between historic grandeur and modern elegance! But we’ve always thought the history of how Beamish Hall came to be makes us incredibly special! I mean, how many other wedding venues can say they were built as a wedding gift in the 13th century for two Norman families as a thank you for helping William the Conqueror!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our team! We are incredibly lucky and proud to have such a dedicated, loyal and committed team, who each day go above and beyond in all they set out to do. What you are guaranteed when hosting a wedding at Beamish Hall is that each and every single member of the team encountered or unseen, from your wedding coordinator, our events team, the executive chef and his brigade or the housekeeper that fluffs your pillows in the honeymoon suite – will put 110% into everything they do and go out of their way to make you smile and ensure the most amazing, memorable and perfect BEST day of your lives!
