Full Description
Our highly dedicated team will be with you every step of your journey towards your perfect day. Your Woodhorn wedding will be exactly as you want it; unique to you and beautifully organised – a totally unforgettable experience for you and your guests. Iconic, historic and dramatically different there is nowhere quite like Woodhorn. Here, listed colliery buildings combine with cutting edge 21st century architecture, all bordered by a nature-rich country park. Once part of the largest pit village in the world, Woodhorn retains the iconic silhouettes of its mining history, the giant pitwheel, a scheduled ancient monument, now complemented by the strikingly beautiful modern Cutter building. The setting makes a breath taking backdrop for photography, ensuring cherished memories that last a lifetime. Woodhorn interiors offer the ultimate in style and flexibility to create the effect you want. Each room is extremely versatile and can be elegantly dressed for a ceremony, arranged for an intimate sit down meal or transformed into an atmospheric dance floor. There are many ways you can tailor your Woodhorn wedding to make every moment a fabulous experience for you and your guests. Outside, vast green lawns open out the landscape providing space for visitors to relax and take in the dramatic architectural backdrop. Take a trip on the charming narrow gauge railway; pay a visit to the world famous Pitmen Painters’ gallery immortalised by Lee Hall’s West End play or take time out in the evocative, interactive Coal Town Exhibition. And with the QEII Country Park adjacent to the museum, arriving guests may even happen upon a rare bird or the delightful red squirrel. No two weddings are the same at Woodhorn. We are committed to giving you the perfect day and our experienced, dedicated functions team will work with you at every stage to ensure your wedding is uniquely yours and runs like clockwork. Menus, room decoration, layout and the format of your day are all highly flexible.
