Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Wallace, on 15 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2017

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
Venue Service

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.

Just perfect!!
Venue Service

By Kate and Ian Simpson, on 16 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 15 Oct 2016

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!

Amazing Wedding
Venue Service

By Fiona Woodhouse, on 14 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 17 Sep 2016

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
Venue Service

By Stacey and Andrew, on 15 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2016

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!
Venue Service

By Sarah & Stu Wallace, on 21 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 20 Aug 2016

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!

Jackson wedding
Venue Service

By Victoria and Andy Jackson, on 22 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2016

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!
Venue Service

By Diane and Lee Potter, on 02 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2016

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 .

Amazing venue, AMAZING food.
Venue Service

By Emma Crawford, on 13 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2016

We got married 4th June 2016. The day was perfect from start to finish, every guest commented on the amazing food and relaxed atmosphere of the place, all of them said it was the best wedding they had been to. Martin, Nigel and their team couldn't do enough for us on the day, I would recommend the parlour to anyone wanting to book a wedding ?
