Vallum Marquee & Tipi Full Description
Vallum is unlike any other wedding venue in Northumberland, offering the relaxed, romantic feel of a country wedding with the convenience and cost-effectiveness of a permanent, well-established venue in breathtaking Hadrian’s Wall country just eight miles west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. One of the many things which sets us apart from other venues is our flexibility. You might want to go all-out uber glam, rustic country, or kitchen garden cute or you may opt for a stunning fine dining feast, a beautifully bespoke buffet, or enjoy a laid-back barbecue. Because we have our own team of chefs we enjoy tailoring the menus to suit your style. Smaller weddings are beautifully suited to our lovely Tipi, while bigger events from 40-160 are hosted in our large Marquee – a permanent ivory lined billowing space with glass windows all down one side to make the most of our deck, lawn and beautiful country views, we even have a lake for that romantic water photograph. All our celebrations are catered for by us in our state of the art kitchens. Our passion is food. Whatever you have in mind for your wedding day, we can work with you to perfect your menu and show off our skills. Some couples have gone for bangers and mash, others have chosen Persian banquets. Over the years we have won many Taste Awards for our home baking so if Afternoon Tea is your vision, you are in the best hands! Couples who choose Vallum are looking for a less formal vibe with great service. Couples love our hands on approach and how we welcome you into our family when you make us your wedding home. We are great at organising and every step of the way is clearly documented so that on the day our team all know exactly what is going on at any minute of the day, so you don't even need to think about it. Weddings here are incredibly special and absolutely personal to you. We look forward to planning it with you!

Alex and Tom were married here on 30th July 2022- " We couldn’t be happier that we chose Vallum for our wedding. We got the sense early on that the venue was beautiful but fun, friendly and relaxed, and that’s exactly what we got. The surroundings and the marquee and tipi make it a great space, but it’s the team that makes it really special. Vicky made the whole process really clear to us, which made planning the day so much more enjoyable and stress-free.

Rosie and Matt June 2022 I cannot say enough how amazing this venue and the staff were. The food was incredible (man that chicken and gravy was awesome - and all the vegans were chuffed with their food too!), the staff were helpful and informative, the service was top notch. I genuinely don't know how they don't have a wedding their every single day, this is definitely a venue that has slipped through the cracks, and I envision that it is going to get super popular in the years to come. Amazing

"We booked our wedding at Vallum Farm back in 2019, for June 2022. As soon as we walked into the venue, we just knew it was for us. A very relaxed and bright feel inside the marquee, with a cosy, chilled vibe in the tipi on the lawn. The whole venue was a blank canvas which we loved as we could be creative and make it our own. Vicky is so lovely and welcoming. Every little detail was covered."

Just want to say what an amazing wedding we had at Vallum Farm. From the day we booked it to the actual wedding day everything was just perfect. Vicky and Lindsey couldn't do enough for us. Our day ran so smoothly, and we didn't have to worry about a thing. All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue was, and the food beautiful. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in the future. Thank you again Ashleigh and David Reeson ❤

Great venue, lovely staff and delicious food!
Great venue, lovely staff and delicious food! Vallum was the third wedding venue we viewed but we instantly fell in love with it. It’s beautiful countryside surroundings and super friendly team made it the venue for us. From our first visit up until the big day, all of the staff helped us so much! Vicky and Alice particularly were always willing to answer any question we had and do their best to make it a very special day, which it was! They worked with us, our families and our other suppliers on all our ideas for the day. It was a more affordable option than similar venues but still delivered all we could hope for. Great value for money with all the extras thrown in (decorations, the outside tipi, fire pits etc.) And the priceless personal touch given by the team who genuinely cared! We’d recommend Vallum to anyone looking to have a countryside wedding for all of these reasons!
