We got married in Blackfriars in Sept 23 and it was perfect in every way.
The venue is outstanding, very atmospheric, beautiful and a little bit different to all the other venues we had seen. Being in the centre of Newcastle made logistics so easy for the many people who travelled, but yet it felt like we were in our own world for the day.
But it isn’t just the most beautiful venue you get, you also get:
Amazing Food- if you have ever eaten at the restaurant you will know that the wedding menu is going to be something very special. Guests are still talking about it today, the choices offered met all types of dietary requirements and all courses were delicious. This isn’t your normal ‘chicken breast and a bit of veg’ menu to accommodate large numbers, this was what you would expect to eat at the best restaurant in town. We opted for the 5 course menu, there is a lot of food so don’t eat too much before you sit down as you don’t want to miss out on culinary delights that are served to you from the best chefs around.
Best wedding planners - most couples find planning their wedding stressful, it is after all expected to be the best day of your life so the pressure is on! But I can truthfully say that Laura Race made the process of planning so easy and definitely not stressful at all. My endless questions were answered immediately, she is outstanding at her job and one of the kindest people you could meet and she led us through the process confidently and patiently. When we found out she would be on holiday on our wedding day I have to be honest, I panicked a little, I couldn’t imagine that the day would be as good without her organisation. But along came Daniel and Dan, who were equally as brilliant and with the wider team, gave us a wedding day that even exceeded our expectations. Everything was managed perfectly so we could just enjoy the day from start to finish with no stress at all.
We have so many of our guests telling us it’s the best wedding they’ve been to and it’s certainly the best wedding we have been to (we may be slightly biased though!?). But I can wholeheartedly recommend Blackfriars for your wedding, you will not be disappointed, you get so much for your money but most importantly, the memories you leave with are priceless.
