Perfect Day!
The venue is a beautiful setting for a wedding, HMS Trincomalee is a unique location for the ceremony and an amazing backdrop for photographs. We had the most wonderful wedding day, all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and are still talking about it weeks later! The Events Manager and team were flexible and accommodating with our ideas and plans for our wedding day, nothing was too much trouble for them. We can highly recommend NMRN Hartlepool as the perfect wedding venue.

Our Wedding - 23rd March 2019
As a former wedding videographer I was always impressed by the National Museum of the Royal Navy Hartlepool as a venue. We were not disappointed in any way at all. The staff, service, food, ambience, DJ were all excellent as was the organisation and visits leading up to the wedding reception. We must comment on the professional and friendly deportment of both Rachel and Jasmine. Top marks for event from inquiry to collecting after the event. The service provided made a vital and appreciated contribution to the success of the day. Thank you for everything. We have no hesitation in recommending the venue and we wish you every success for the future.

Wedding Reception
We had our evening wedding reception in the Baltic Suite at the museum and it was a fantastic space. It fitted in perfect with our rustic theme because of the stone floors and brick walls. Our guests loved it as when they arrived the first thing they saw was the HMS Trincomalee. We had rum punch welcome drinks provided by the venue which looked great for when the guests arrived. We chose to have pie and peas as a meal and it was lovely, people even went for seconds as we paid for more than we needed in case we invited too many people. The team were nothing but professional throughout the whole process and Rachel the Events manager knew exactly what we wanted from start to finish. Because there wasn't anything else on in the room the same day we were able to come in with the wedding suppliers and set up (We got married a different day before hand) Would defiantly recommend them for every part it was perfect! Thank You!
