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!

Beautiful Venue and amazing Customer Service
We decided to start planning our wedding during lockdown, with having the extra time off together we thought this would be the perfect opportunity and something to keep us busy.
However we sharp found that it was actually really hard as most businesses where closed or currently not taking bookings during this time.
We had our heart set on Beamish as soon as we seen the BeamishHallWeddings Instagram account. We couldn’t be happier when they emailed back with lots of helpful information and even arranged to give us a call to talk further.
When the restrictions where lifted we met with our wedding coordinator Hannah who was so lovely and made our time so special showing us around our wedding venue.
We found planning during lockdown hard to get excited about getting married, but all the staff at beamish made us feel at home and made us so excited.
We can’t wait to meet with the team again to plan more.
