Perfect day. With no worries due to the amazing staff. Dream wedding day.
Can’t thank the staff enough. They were friendly,patient and extremely professional. They helped me with everything as I am not good with emails so would ring me. The bar staff were amazing, and very efficient. There was nothing we had to worry about. The wedding planner talked us through every detail and got us where we needed to be. I wish we could do it all again. And will be booking in for our first anniversary.

Our special day
Our wedding was the evening special, we were married at 5pm outside and went straight into the evening do. I couldn’t recommend this venue more. Not only because it’s such a beautiful setting, but the wedding team and decorating team are so attentive and genuinely cared about us having a fantastic day. I have never felt so cared for and important. Nothing was a bother and they even threw in a few extra bits for free on the day to make the room better

The perfect day in safe hands
We had an absolutely amazing wedding here at Beamish Hall. If you want to feel like you are putting your day in experienced hands then I would recommend this venue. Having such high levels of professionalism and experience meant that we could relax and enjoy our day. At the same time, we really felt like our day was special and our own requests/look were really taken into account. The decoration team were brilliant and flexible, even when we were initally quite indecisive about what we wanted. We also had some guests with serious medical conditions that required certain accommodations - nothing was too much trouble. We loved having the Exclusively Yours package which meant that we could have the ceremony, breakfast and evening reception in three different rooms. The Shafto suite was lovely for the ceremony - with the stained glass and wood panelling, it gives you the feel of being in a church, even though you aren't. We had our wedding breakfast in the Monboucher suite, where the natural lighting was gorgeous, as were the original period features. The food was fantastic quality - just as much care went into it for our meal tasting for two as it did for our breakfast for over 90 people. The portions were large and nobody went hungry! The cheese tart and the beef were particularly popular options. Guests were offered extra gravy which they commented on as a nice (Northern!) touch. The Winter Gardens is lovely for the evening reception – it has its own bar and plenty of room for dancing, with the option to go outside to cool off. The evening buffet was extremely generously sized sandwiches and chips, which were great quality - if you had any room left after the wedding breakfast. Lots of our guests have commented on how beautiful the venue was and on how fun the day itself was - I think this is in large part thanks to the communicative and experienced staff who give such calm and reassurance. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beamish Hall.

Perfect place of a wedding
From start to finish, the Beamish Wedding team were superb. No question was too silly, no request was too much. They replied to my many emails immediately. The team are super friendly and helped make our wedding the day what it was. The food, the rooms, the grounds and the staff are amazing. If I could do it all again, I would do. We will definitely be back for a stay. I would definitely recommend Beamish, it’s THE perfect place for a wedding

Made our wedding feel special at a good price
Amazing venue, guests had nothing but good things to say. The overall environment and feel of the space was amazing and they made our night feel special. Each member of staff was attentive, listened to us and provided great service even with the busy time of year. Recommendations for improvements would be providing a better place to get ready at the venue, with the rooms not having storage i.e. hang space for the dress. Made getting ready a bit awkward.

We had our wedding at Beamish Hall on 2nd September and it was the most perfect day! The venue is absolutely stunning. All the staff were incredible leading up to the wedding, and on the day. Everything was just perfect, the bridal suite was pure luxury, the food was amazing, the grounds for the photos were impeccable and all staff provided a 5 star service. Our guests are saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to. We would recommend Beamish Hall to anyone. If you are looking for the most beautiful venue with first class service to host your dream wedding then this is it!

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Beamish Hall?

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 Beamish Hall in 5 adjectives

Romantic, Elegant, Fun, Breath-taking, Enchanted.

Where’s the best photo spot at Beamish Hall?

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 Beamish Hall?

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 Beamish Hall 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!
