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!

What an absolutely fantastic venue, we got married here on the 30th November 2018 and everything was absolutely perfect. All the staff are so friendly and very helpful. A big thank you to Rosie and the wedding coordinators for going above and beyond and making everything possible. The serving staff were also great and weren’t even faced when some of the children were running around. The nighttime staff were so friendly too. Big shout out to the beamish extra styling team, the rooms were everything I wanted and more. I wish I could do the day all over again it was just absolutely unbelievable. 5 star venue and 5 star staff!! Thank you all so so much. Xx

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!

We held our wedding reception here, and it was beautiful! So many of our guests commented how magical the winter gardens looked! All the rooms looked fantastic and the staff were very accommodating. I'm just a little sad I missed the full hog roast, though I blame my new wife.
