Dream wedding venue
By Amy & Mark, on 23 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018
We had our wedding here on 2nd June, Married in the old smithy building and everything was a dream.
The staff were amazing, organised, helpful and very friendly, could not do enough for us and our guests. The food was also top quality, delicious :)
Most of our guests did not know of The Parlour and left loving the place, they could not believe how we found such a rustic, pretty venue, gem of a venue.
We also highly rated the resident DJ, provided excellent dancing songs all night!
Thank you to The Parlour for our truly unforgettable day.
Dream wedding venue

I had my dream outdoor wedding at the parlour. We were married outside in their court yard surrounded by birds singing. The venue is amazing, we took our own decorations and along side theirs it looked amazing. Our guests were blown away at the little jewel we found. The food was top quality and also the staff who were fantastic.
If you want an amazing romantic special place that still feels untouched then this is it.

We fell in love with The Parlour immediately and booked up straight away.
We loved the relaxed, rustic feel of the place and it suited what we wanted perfectly.
Molly was great in the lead up to the day making sure that she was on hand for any queries we had.
The day itself was incredible. Hottest bank holiday on record which meant it was the perfect place for some shots in the gardens.
The food (as always) was fantastic. All the guests commented on how delicious it was and loved that they could choose what to eat.
The day ran so smoothly which is a credit to all the staff and management.
We wish we could do it all again as it truly was the best day of our lives.

What a fantastic day. The food and staff were amazing. They couldn't do enough for us. The feedback from our guests was superb. We would highly recommend this venue for a relaxed day/ evening. We enjoyed every single second .

We had the perfect wedding day at the Parlour and couldn't recommend it enough. In the planning months, Molly was so helpful and answered all our questions quickly.
On the day, all the staff were so kind and friendly and couldn't do enough to help us whilst not being overbearing at all. The food was to die for (as always) and the portion sizes massive.
So many of our guests commented on the beautiful venue and the irresistible food.
I wish we could do it all again!
Perfect day at The Parlour
By John and Claire Lillie, on 06 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2017
We only had 3 months to plan our wedding. After visiting the Parlour, we knew the laid back feel and competent, confident approach that Molly had was perfect for us. We had regular meetings with Molly to ensure plans were still on track and any changes we made were implemented without issue. The entire venue was ours for the whole day, we even had plenty of time the day before the wedding to hang bunting, lights and add our final little touches.
On the day itself, Molly and all of the staff were amazing from start to end, the food was fantastic and the venue magical.
We would thoroughly recommend this venue for couples who want a relaxed, informal day in beautiful gardens in Northumberland.

We got married here in October and it couldn't have been a more perfect day. The staff were brilliant and so helpful from helping us plan how we wanted things to go, to making sure the big day went off without any problems. I phoned up a few times before the wedding with questions and requests and they were able to answer straight away. We wanted quite an informal wedding with no speeches or announcements and the staff were more than happy to accommodate and go with what we wanted.
Lots of our guests commented on how lovely the food was and the ones with children were particularly impressed with the kids' menu options. We also got a lot of comments afterwards about how beautiful the Parlour is and a few plan on going back for meals and afternoon tea. It really did look gorgeous, especially when lit up at night.
When setting up the room the day before, we even had a little chat with one of the gardeners who explained that they try and match the outside displays with the colour schemes of the wedding. It's the little touches like this that made it such a perfect and memorable day.
If I could get married here again, I would!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Parlour and it was amazing. Staff were fantastic both in the run up and on the day. The food and setting were perfect and everything went completely smoothly, largely due to the organisation and the staff there. All our guests commented on how good the food was and how lovely the venue is. I'd definitely recommend for a wedding. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so perfect.
The Ridley Wedding

Andrew and I had a very clear idea of they style of wedding we wanted; relaxed, personal and a really good party. We had struggled to find this in the North East, however, from the moment we met Nigel and Martin at Newcastle Racecourse's wedding fair, we knew we had a contender on our hands, A week later we had confirmed our booking.
Nigel, Martin and the rest of the team went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect wedding day and we could never thank them enough for everything that they did for us.
We battled with the rain on the day itself but the team had thought of everything and we had a brilliant time.
All of our guests commented on the food in particular and everyone, including us, had the time of their lives.
Thank you so much to the team, we couldn't have done any of it without you!
Perfect venue for your perfect day!

We got married in August and although we had a very rainy day, Mart, Nigel and the team ensured not one if us got wet and that our day went smoothly. Everyone worked so hard and helped create a great at,ops here to celebrate our big day!
From the minute we booked, up until the end of our day I can not fault the staff one bit!
Food was excellent (and lots of it)
We can not recommend this venue enough!

Me and my husband had our wedding reception at the parlour back in July 2016. It was truly the best day of our lives. Surrounded by our family and friends in this quirky, absolute beauty of a place. I work with a lot of brides in my work, I see behind the scenes, I hear about the stress of the day and the brides who tell me all that went wrong at their venue. And of course all the fabulous parts of their day too. Me and my husband did not go looking for a wedding venue. We sat at the parlour having our usual cup of whatever and obviously a piece of cake and we just said...'let's get married here'. So we did.
I can't thank Nigel and his amazing team enough for the outstanding professionalism, amazing food and managing our wedding in the way we pictured. Anything and everything we wanted, we got!! There was no pressure, no stress and they really did go above and beyond. Not even that spell of rain where it poured down for half an hour could dampen the day. My guests had an amazing time. And 6 months on we still have people saying 'wow, did you get married at the parlour?'
Thanks a billion,
Victoria and Andy
The best day of our lives!

We were drawn to The Parlour and it was the only venue we looked at because we knew straight away that it was absolutely perfect.
The venue is romantic, rustic and has a vintage chic style about it. The staff are professional and very experienced. I had a list of questions, but when I met with Nigel and Martin I didn't need to actually ask the questions as they'd had everything covered. I'm a worrier and a perfectionist and I couldn't believe how they'd thought of everything that I had in my head before I got a chance to say! I was very impressed. No request was too much , they allowed us time to dress the room the way we wanted, they ensured our cake maker had access to set the cake in place, they communicated with our saxaphone player to ensure he had his area not only in the ceramony room but in the garden and in the wedding breakfast area. They were so efficient and thought of everything, it rained that day but not one drop of rain fell on any of our heads, they had gazebos but also umbrellas held over our heads by the staff! We felt like royalty! The food too was outstanding, we felt very proud and every guest member were complimenting us on our choice of venue, and even told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to.
We love the venue so much that we now go to the super club every month. We relive our special day each time we visit. One other thing- it's very apparent that every staff member enjoys working there which adds something special to the whole venue. It truly was the best day of our lives .
