Top Wedding Tips

Having a clear plan before you start will help you keep on top of everything and be sure that you don’t forget something important.

It’s a common mistake to forget all the little extras, too – for the budget to work, you need to factor in every detail.

Wedding planning can be stressful but if you find yourself getting too caught up in it all, take a step back and remind yourself what your wedding is really about – you marrying the love of your life!

We couldnt have asked for a better place
From booking the wedding through to the day itself, Beamish Hall staff were incredible. Rosie was fantastic and professional throughout our wedding journey.
The wedding day itself was just perfect, the whole day ran so smoothly, the food was perfect, the service was amazing and the Winter Gardens looked simply stunning. I owe a huge thank you to Helen from Beamish Extras who was just fantastic throughout. The Winter Gardens looked stunning. It was everything I wanted it to look like and more. We had several meetings to discuss how I wanted the room, as I kept changing my mind after visiting a showcase day, because it would always be decorated differently each time and would always look amazing. I did tell her they were just too good at their job because I liked everything! Despite this, Helen was always so helpful and patient with me.
All our guests commented on what a lovely time they had and we still can't believe what an amazing day it was. Natalia did a wonderful job of looking after ourselves and our guests throughout the whole day.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to get married. We certainly won't forget it!

The day ran like a dream
Our wedding experience at the Hall was nothing short of amazing. The day ran like a dream and we couldn't be happier. Everything ran to perfection and we didn't have a thing to worry about, which is exactly what you need on your big day!
The only thing we are sad about is that we can't do it all over again!
Massive thanks to Rosie and the team for catering for our every need and making sure we have a fabulous day to remember!

Our wedding day was perfect in our eyes
As soon as we walked through the doors of Beamish Hall we knew we would be married there. The old world elegance and welcoming atmosphere was everything we were looking for in a venue and hadn't found in the right measures anywhere else.
Our wedding coordinator was so attentive and helpful throughout every stage of our planning. Even when we thought we had thrown a curve ball it wasn't anything she couldn't handle.
The Shafto Hall was a beautiful place to hold our ceremony. Filled with candles, it showcased all the romance of the day and have our guests the grand welcome we wanted for them.
The Monboucher Room, what can I say, I was in love as soon as I stepped through the doors on the first day we visited, and to step through them seeing it transformed after a year of hard planning took my breath away. All our guests were so complimentry of the venue, of its beauty and charm, and how it was just 'us'.
Being able to have our guests stay over the night before and see them all at breakfast the day after the wedding worked better than I had thought and having young children and elderly relatives it was a must that they were comfortable.
Our wedding day was perfect in our eyes and without Beamish Hall and its staff we would have definitely missed out.
