Brinkburn is a chic country wedding venue set in a dramatic, rural wooded ravine on the banks of the River Coquet, Northumberland. With a 12th century manor house and church, Grade II listed stable block and stunning grounds, the stage is set for your perfect wedding day.
The contemporary White Room is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships. For a more traditional church service take a peek into Brinkburn Priory. Humanist celebrations can take place in The White Room, in the woodlands or in the architectural grandeur of the un-restored manor house.
For your reception, you can host a stunning celebration in our tipis. With the perfect blend of traditional sophistication and modern quirkiness, your reception will be an unforgettable experience. The tipis can accommodate up to 120 seated guests and turn into a bar area for the evening, while guests dance the night away in the magnificent White Room and enjoy drinks on the terrace.
As the night draws to a close, you and your nearest and dearest can head to the stunning accommodation on-site. The former stables is perfect for larger groups, while Bel House can house a small family or couple and Mullins House is ideal for groups of four. Priory Cottage is the perfect romantic escape for couples. From Spring 2019, there will also be space for eight more guests in Blakey house and Cuthbert house, which offer the option to adjoin.
To experience this enchanting venue for yourself, get in touch with the friendly team to book a show-around.

We couldnt have picked a more beautiful setting
We couldnt have picked a more beautiful setting for our Wedding, and Sons Christening, in September, the day was perfect from start to finish thanks to the fantastic team at Brinkburn, especially our lovely coordinator Jan who made sure the day went without a hitch and kept me calm when it was most needed! Our family was blown away by the cottages, were hoping to return for a holiday weekend in the near futureSent on 06/11/2017

Brinkburn is such a special place
When we got engaged it was so important to us to find the perfect wedding venue that felt ‘totally us’, and I didn’t think we’d find it - until we discovered Brinkburn.Sent on 06/11/2017
We still can’t believe we were lucky enough to be married in such a beautiful location, and smile every time we think about it.
It was really important that the day reflected our personalities, so it was great to be so involved in the styling and structure of the day. Thank you to everyone who helped to make our dream become a reality. A big thank you to Jan for helping so much on the evening before the wedding too - particularly helping to put up the bunting. We would have been there all night otherwise!
Our friends and family are still talking about the day (and how wonderful the wedding breakfast was) and several have said it’s the best wedding they’ve been to.
We honestly had the best day of our lives and didn't want to leave. Brinkburn is such a special place and we’ve already booked to come back on our 1st anniversary.
Thank you everyone x

Our wedding was our most magical weekend
I initially came across Brinkburn online and almost immediately stopped my search as it was just what we were looking for. We wanted a beautiful venue with features, but that did not look dated with bold crested carpets! The fact that the Priory is onsite and can be used for the ceremony was just a dream.Sent on 06/11/2017
We made an appointment to visit Suzette and her team. Now my fear set in, you know when you get excited, but things are never that good in real life!! Well lucky for us Brinkburn was just as amazing if not more in real life, we loved it!! Our search was over, and this was the only one we had visited!
Initially we thought we would not use the tipis as we only had a small guest list. However when you see them, and feel how special they are you have to incorporate them.
We went ahead and booked. We then got allocated our wedding planner Jan!! Jan was amazing from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble. She was available for advice and support and even recommended some amazing supplier. Jan has a relaxed approach which makes you feel calm and at ease and I had 100 percent faith in her.
And did she deliver.......
Our wedding weekend was amazing, perfect, as one guest put it flawless, another guest said it was the wedding of millionaires!! Everybody loved every minute.
The beauty of Brinkburn is you still have another day! The Sunday was spent with close family reflecting on the day, walking in the woods and river area and eating again!
I can honestly say that our wedding was our most magical weekend!! We would not change anything about it.
