Brinkburn Northumberland Full Description
For couples looking for a wedding day like no other and holidays that create lasting memories. Brinkburn Northumberland has unique wedding offers for both religious and civil ceremonies in the 12th century Brinkburn Priory, manor house and grade 2 listed stable block. Set in a secluded wooded ravine on the banks of the river Coquet, Brinkburn Northumberland’s six luxury holiday cottages are the perfect home away from home and the ideal escape for couples as well as larger groups. Fulfilled customers combined with weddings which span three days set us apart from our competitors. The White Room is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships. For religious ceremonies, nestled in enchanting woodland is Brinkburn Priory for the most unforgettable space to gather together for a church ceremony. Humanist celebrations can take place in The White Room, outdoors or in the un-restored Manor House. Adventurous couples can celebrate with our helicopter wedding package including an outdoor riverside ceremony. A drinks reception of champagne and canapes can be followed in The White Room, or outside on the terrace followed by a Wedding Breakfast inside our Tipi for your celebration. With the perfect blend of traditional sophistication and modern quirkiness, your reception will be an unforgettable experience. The Tipi can accommodate up to 120 seated guests and turn into a bar area for evening, while guests can dance the night away in The White Room and enjoy drinks outside on the terrace. As the night draws to a close, you and your nearest and dearest can retire to the on-site accommodation suitable for up to 28 guests across the Estate. The main accommodation of The Stables and Priory Cottage just a stones throw from the Venue is where the Bridal Suite and accommodation for up to 10 guests is situated. The Gardener's Cottages are at the entrance of the Estate, and are perfect for small families or groups of four.

Our day was perfection!!
Wow where to start! We got married on 14th October and it truly was the most amazing day start to finish. The sun was shining and the venue looked beautiful. We arrived on the Friday to set up the tipi and white room ready for our big day. Jess, our wedding coordinator, was on hand when we arrived to show us round and help out where needed. Jess was absolutely fantastic in the run up to our big day, no question was silly or no ask was too big she was always happy to help! Jess, Beth and the rest of the Brinkburn team totally made our day run seamless and without a glitch. From carrying my dress to the Priory before the ceremony to making sure all our guests were looked after all night, they were amazing!! We would highly recommend this venue, we are sad our day is over but the memories we made at Brinkburn will last a lifetime :) Thank you so much to everyone!

Where do I even start? From start to finish, the venue, the accomodation, Jess and all the team were absolutely amazing. I wish I could do all 3 days again! I’d never been to brinkburn before I viewed it but instantly fell in love with how secluded you felt from the world! The day ran so smoothly and so many people have commented since to say how the day was faultless. No matter how good it all looks beforehand, it looks even better on the wedding day! I can’t thank Jess enough for everything she did for me and my husband not only leading up to the day but on the day too! She was on hand with any questions or concerns I had and always made me feel so reassured. Jess guided me through the whole process not just with everything Brinkburn but from vendors, to props, to the little details. Thank you so much Jess, we love you 🩷

The best day of our lives
We had the absolute best time at Brinkburn for our wedding weekend. From start to finish, it was more than we could have ever have hoped for. A few things for us (and our family + friends) that stood out in particular: - Attention to detail with dietary requirements - sometimes people with intolerances and allergies feel like an afterthought at weddings but they absolutely raved about their food - Canapes - having our own plate bought to us was a brilliant touch as we were so busy with photographer etc. - Jess was so calm and had excellent attention to detail - she couldn't do enough to help. Whenever we mentioned any little thing on the day, everything had already been thought about and planned - The venue was so clean and well-kept and so many people commented on how beautiful it was - Whatever we asked for, the staff made it happen - nothing was too much of a trouble. The first dance outside was a really lovely touch and the staff were so flexible and happy to bring the speakers outside for us But all these mentioned, absolutely everything was perfect and we could not have asked for more. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so SO much x

The Best Day!
Our wedding at Brinkburn was a dream come true and was truly the best day. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The venue was beautiful, the day ran smoothly from start to finish and every member of the team was incredibly helpful in keeping the wedding party calm and confident about what was happening. I will always look back on it as the most perfect and special day, and I’m jealous of all future brides who get to have their day there! A beautiful venue and a beautiful day, we couldn’t have asked for more. X

Our wedding day 5.8.23
Our wedding day was completely and utterly perfect beyond our wildest dreams! Nearly a month on, we are still floating on cloud 9! The venue, the suppliers and every single element were all an absolute dream and everything ran like clockwork purely down to Jess and the team at Brinkburn! Efficient doesn’t even cover it! From the first ever email to the day itself, Jess couldn’t have been more helpful and made the whole process and event so effortless and stress free! It’s made our whole experience so special and we can’t thank her and the whole team enough! We had the best day ever and wouldn’t change a single thing!

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Brinkburn Northumberland?

Where to pick one would just be impossible!! The best weddings are always the ones where the venue is full of colour, the guests are full of laughter (& food) and the happy couple are full of smiles, and here at Brinkburn we would expect nothing less!

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

Questions!! It is so important to ask questions throughout the planning process, so not only the day is 100% how you would like, but you also have a full understanding. At Brinkburn our wedding coordinators are always on hand for all questions, no matter how big or small.

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

This has to be table numbers... I love it when a couple have table numbers/names that are personal to them. For example, Alice & Sam had their table names as different West End musicals the pair had featured in which was a fantastic, thoughtful idea!
