    Perfect wedding!

    From the minute we drove down the drive we new this is where we wanted our special day! Hotel and grounds are stunning, the staff on the weddings team were amazing and made sure we felt completely welcome and valued. We are 2 women yet Beamish did not make us feel remotely uncomfortable which unfortunately we cannot say the same for other venues. We rang often to ask random questions about small details and the team were always on hand to support us. Beamish Extras did an amazing job of decorating the rooms for us I can't recommend them enough. One slight disappointment is that in the evening, we ordered the feast for all- 2hours later the food had been thrown in the bin! We questioned the person in charge and he said we should've told him if we wanted to keep the food - so warning, make it clear that you want any left over food wrapped up before the party starts! Aside from this, this, this really was the best day of our lives!!

    The most Amazing day

    We had the most incredible day from start to finish. We were looked after all day and didn't have to think about anything except enjoying ourselves.

    The only feedback we have is that the staff in the stables when having breakfast were a bit rude and unhelpful. We Have been there for breakfast 3 times and have always had the same poor service which is such a shame when the staff in the hall are incredible. Its abit of a dull note to end on when we had been on such a high from the wedding.

    Wedding 9th July 2022

    Overall we had an amazing experience at Beamish Hall. It was the perfect wedding for us and the staff were very professional, flexible and caring throughout the build up and on the day. The venue itself looked magical and the seating areas outside on the lawn provided a fantastic area to relax for our friends and family, which added to the memories we have created. We would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Excellent all around

    We originally had our wedding booked for March 2020 . It had to be moved for obvious reasons. The date was moved two or three times and we eventually celebrated in June 2022 at Beamish Hall.

    The team were fantastic through all the changes. They could not have been more accommodating or flexible. The venue itself is incredible. On the day we felt absolutely comfortable with the wedding team. Everything was seamless. So well organised. We had an amazing wedding day. Thank you to all the team.

    From the very start the Beamish staff were absolutely brilliant; the venue is fantastic, the food was great and the wedding planners were really helpful. We also got married at the hall and I would highly recommend the Shafto Hall if anyone is looking for a civil ceremony venue. Our special day was like a fairytale.

    Staff were helpful from start to finish from looking around the venue until the end of the ceremony. Very well organised and all staff very professional., Beautiful venue at any time of year. We married in October and the Autumn colours were fantastic. I stayed with my bridesmaids the evening before and then stayed in one of the suites the night of the wedding. Rooms were comfortable and the suite luxurious. Only regret that it was all over far too soon. I have a very good friend getting married this year at the same venue after my experience I want every bride to feel as special and unique as I was made to feel throughout the whole experience and would recommend a viewing of this fabulous venue.

    We would recommend Beamish Hall to anyone!!!

    We would recommend Beamish Hall to anyone!!! The team were so progressional - we first met Rosie and after seeing a few other venues we were instantly struck by her professionalism, her knowledge of the trade and we just felt confident that she would look after us! She really stood out. We then met Hannah further along the line who again was excellent and made us feel confident that everything was under control! The venue is beautiful, that goes without saying. But it really was the team that made the difference, there are plenty of nice venues about but with Beamish you’re getting the whole package. On the day we were so so happy - everything ran seamlessly and we had to do nothing other than enjoy it. Our guests were so complimentary of the service. We could not have been happier! Thank you to the team!

    Perfect from beginning to end and everything in the middle. We did not research any other similar venue prior to booking. Our feeling about how perfect the day was were validated after. We had ca couple of local spa breaks with wedding venues and in all honestly they were not a patch on Beamish, staff and location

    I will never forget it. Perfect in every way. Xx

    I can’t thank beamish hall staff enough for all the effort they put into our wedding and just how fantastic it was. Everything I needed was done straight away and everyone was really helpful and very friendly. I felt that the whole process of booking and planning our dream wedding was so easy with beamish hall. I have to say a massive thank you to Rosie and our wedding co ordinators as they were utterly amazing! The staff that worked the wedding during the day and night couldn’t have been more helpful and they made everything run so smoothly. I would recommend anyone to get married here as they will not be disappointed. Thank you for making our day one to remember I will never forget it. Perfect in every way. Xx
