A Spectacular Venue

We truly cannot recommend the Hidden Oak enough - they are absolute experts at everything they do.
We had the most spectacular day at the venue and from the first meeting our minds were at ease that both everything was in hand and that it was going to be so special!
We had high expectations for our day and we set up the room ahead of the day which was an additional really special experience. Everyone who attended commented on the quality of the venue and their offering.

If you want an amazing venue - this fits the bill.

The Hidden Oak

From the day we went to view this venue after being let down with our previous booking elsewhere, we were honestly blown away with how beautiful it was and how approachable and friendly the team are at the hidden oak.
From the start anything we wanted/asked for was possible, the guys from the hidden oak; Jonathan, Robert and Chris made us feel so comfortable every time we visited and are just great people.
As time drew closer to the big day, they were always at the end of the phone answering questions or offering reassurance that the day will run smooth and be perfect, and it was exactly that!
Our day was the best day ever, held in the most beautiful venue, the hidden oak, the team made the day run so smooth and made everything feel so relaxed- which all of our guests positively commented on!
I can’t recommend this venue enough, our day was perfect and we wish we could do it all over again!
Massive thanks to the hidden oak team; Jonathan, Robert and Chris, we’re so grateful for all of your help in making the day the best ever!

Scott and Lucy 🥰

December Wedding

I can't even begin to describe how amazingly perfect our day was at The Hidden Oak. We planned our wedding in about 8 weeks but nothing was too much for Rob and his family. Me and my partner really had the most perfect day from start to finish. We really are gutted that it's all over.
We had our ceremony at the hidden oak and then our celebrations for the rest of the afternoon and evening. We had a 3 course meal for our wedding breakfast all organised and sorted by the Hidden Oak, the food got so many compliments from our guests, followed by a pizza oven on the night (also organised through the venue) which were amazing and went down a treat with everyone. Rob was so accommodating and let us have our special day just the way we wanted. We really couldn't have had a better day or asked for more. The whole day went so smoothly and the staff were amazing throughout!

The Hidden Oak is a beautiful venue in a beautiful setting. Jonathan, Robert and Christopher were very welcoming and helpful from the very first meeting, they were always on hand and willing to accommodate anything we asked for. They successfully coordinated all the vendors ensuring a very smooth running of the day, we can’t thank them enough for making our day so perfect!
All the guests commented on how fantastic the venue was and what a great day it was!
Thank you so much again to Jonathan, Robert, Chris and all the team at The Hidden Oak, you made our day so relaxed so that we could enjoy it without having to worry about a thing!
We can’t recommend The Hidden Oak enough!

Great from start to finish.

We had our wedding at the hidden oak last year and it was an amazing experience from start to finish. Jonathan and his family were accommodating and flexible towards everything that we wanted to pull our day together.

We loved being able to create our day with some of the best wedding providers in the north east which we chose to suit exactly what we wanted.

Thank you for making the wedding planning experience fun and exciting - wish we could do it all again!
