Full Description
For couples looking for a wedding day like no other and holidays that create lasting memories. Brinkburn Northumberland has three 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. 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.

The Best Weekend
Not only did we have a wonderful country autumn wedding, but we got to spend the whole weekend at Brinkburn celebrating. We were hidden away from the world in the best location with our friends and family. The team ensured our special day flowed seamlessly whilst being special to us. We couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful or well suited venue, it truly was the best weekend!

The most unbelievably special day
WOW! Where do we begin… Having our wedding at Brinkburn Priory really was a dream come true. A weekend we will cherish forever and that we wish we could do all over again. From the moment we viewed Brinkburn as a potential wedding venue, we knew it was the one. Not only does it have the most magical feel, but it is private and secluded and there is something very special about walking down the long road towards the venue and getting your first glimpse of the Priory and the tipi. We had the lovely Jess as our wedding coordinator through the whole process and she helped us with every little detail, even the ones we didn’t think of ourselves and made us feel at ease the whole way through. Jess was so friendly and welcoming and responded to all of our emails so quickly (thank you Jess for responding so quickly to my last minute panic daily emails in the run up to the big day!). Jess was also ab absolute star on the day and ensured the day ran so smoothly. Our wedding weekend was honestly the best weekend of our lives and the venue is so magical. We booked the Stables accommodation and all of the cottages too so our family and friends had somewhere to relax for the weekend, all of the accommodation is immaculate and beautiful and all of our guests were wowed. Everyone commented on how perfect and beautiful the whole day was, from the grand ceremony which certainly has the wow factor in the Priory to the amazing food we had served for our wedding breakfast in the incredible tipi and, my personal favourite, the epic White Room which turns into the perfect pink disco room. Thank you to all of the Brinkburn Team for allowing us to celebrate our wedding at the most stunning venue and for making us feel so welcome and special. We will never forget our perfect weekend, lots of love, Aimee & Dan

We got married at Brinkburn in the Priory on the 5th October, staying the night before and night of the big day. The venue is just absolutely beautiful, the most stunning accommodation and all of our guests were in awe at the Priory and tipi, they are just breathtaking! If you are wanting Pinterest worthy wedding photos… you’ll definitely get them here! Every experience working with the team at Brinkburn has been amazing, from the open days, our menu tasting, the rehearsal to the wedding. Each step is planned to perfection and Ewan like clockwork, Jess our coordinator was not only the most calm and professional person but she helped make us feel right at home and keep stress levels right down! She went above and beyond to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be. By the time we checked out she felt so familiar to us and felt like part of the family, not once did we feel like we were just ‘another couple getting married,’ Jess and the team made us feel so special, they truly care about you and will pull out all stops to give you what your looking for! And the food!… OMG wow it’s by far the best thing you’ll taste in your life!! Dan and the catering team are absolutely brilliant! We had slow cooked shin of beef which just melted in your mouth! We had a band in the white room where our guests partied all night, but the set up between the white room, tipi and terrace area is just perfect and is something we have never seen anywhere else, our music played through to the tipi so whether you fancied a break from the dance floor or wanted a drink from the bar it didn’t feel like you had to leave the party. Everywhere is so inclusive yet lovely and private at the same time! Brinkburn is simply MAGICAL!!

Best day ever
Brinkburn is such a hidden gem, amazing venue and perfect location. Our day was just perfect, the team were great- Ellie in particular is a real asset. For us getting the whole weekend to enjoy the venue was a real bonus, which a lot of venues don’t offer. Cannot praise the team and venue highly enough for making our day so special and one to remember :)

Incredible from start to finish!
The best weekend of our lives!! This venue is faultless - from the planning experience and support from Jess, to the actual venue itself and the pure beauty of it's surroundings, to the gorgeous accommodation on site, to the insane food, we literally couldn't have asked for more and are so grateful to everyone at Brinkburn. I would recommend this venue to anyone who is considering getting married in the North East, you will not regret it!

A day we’ll never forget
After multiple different venue viewings we fell in love with Brinkburn when we saw it (initially online due to covid restrictions). When we visited it in person we knew it was the place for us. The weekend couldn’t have gone better. The Brinkburn team sprung into action and made everything run so incredibly smoothly. The advice and guidance Jess gave us in the planning was so helpful and we had a truly memorable day. Big thanks to the Brinkburn team and especially Jess.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

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!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unforgettable, exclusive, atmospheric, personal, sensational.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Do I have to pick just one?! The Priory is so grand it is hard not to be photogenic with that backdrop, the stables gardens are bustling with colour and the tipi has the enchanted fairy lights making all of your photos look magical!

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

A wedding planner never tells.....

What’s your favourite canapé?

A fellow fish lover I would have to go with the crispy king prawn with wasabi mayonnaise.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

This is an obvious has to be a steal of the wedding cake!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

At Brinkburn we are lucky to have our 12th Century Priory Church and Manor House quite literally on our doorstep which is such a unique feature for a wedding venue to have!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

I love Brinkburn Northumberland, I am extremely proud of the team who started this as a small business which is slowly growing more and more by delivering exceptional weddings week in and week out. The team on the day are so passionate about ensuring each and every person is having a great time.
