My Daughter decided to celebrate her wedding festivities at Whalton following a church ceremony
My Daughter decided to celebrate her wedding festivities at Whalton following a church ceremony. The location is out of the way but not too far to travel to Morpeth/Newcastle and you can get to Newcastle International Airport by a direct route and there are lots of hotels here for guests to stay.. . The gardens look absolutely beautiful and are very well managed. The marquee was nicely positioned in the top garden whilst we had canopies and bubbly in the lower garden. As we had lots of small children at the wedding we had garden games and a small bouncy castle to entertain them (worked a treat).. . The wedding breakfast was exceptional. I had eaten at many very good restaurants around the UK and Europe and this was among the best I have had and other guests agreed. A big thanks to William the owner of Boldon Farmhouse Pantry.. . In the evening we had a Disco and the venue was ideal as there were rows of small lights in the roof of the marquee which made the venue even more magical as the daylight faded. The DJ was also excellent (Kenny from Metro radio).. . The photographer was with us all day starting in our home photographing my Daughter and her bridesmaids till the end of the night. A big thank you to Elaine from Sean Elliott photography (based in the Biscuit Factory in Shieldfield, Newcastle Upon Tyne).. . The event managers Gary and Dawn (Signature 1) were absolutely brilliant and made the day flow perfectly. These guys are ultimate professionals and I thank them both.. . The owners of the Property Penny and Timmy Norton made us feel most welcome and that their gardens were ours for the duration. A big thanks to them for allowing us to hire the gardens.. . We also rented the East Wing of the Manor which is beautiful and well appointed and sleeps 6 people (managed by English Country cottages) and helped us simply to fall into bed when the celebrations ended.. . I would recommend anyone who wants something very special for their wedding and not simply a corporate package in a hotel chain where every wedding is the same.

A beautiful English garden in the Northumbrian village of Whalton. Fabulous wisteria, fragrant roses, a multiplicity of border plants. Just delightful.
