About The Vermont Hotel

Castle Garth, Newcastle
Tyne & Wear, NE1 1RQ


Built at the same time as New York City’s Rockefeller Centre and The Chrysler Building, The Vermont Hotel in Newcastle is an elegant and timeless wedding venue.  An impressive Art Deco building discreetly hidden in the Heart of the City, it is a jewel like no other.

Rich with period feature but recently refurbished to an impressive standard, you really can have the best of both worlds.  The interior boasts lots of mirrored pillars and tables, luxurious soft furnishings, heavy drapes and crystal dripped chandeliers, which add glittering accents to the dark and decadent colour palette. 

Licenced for civil ceremonies, but neighbouring some beautiful churches and St Nicholas’ Cathedral, you have several options for your ceremony.  And as for your photographs?  Our neighbours include The Castle Keep, The Moot Hall, St Nicholas’ Cathedral, the City’s Bridges and The Black Gate, so there are endless backdrops for dramatic photographs - and you don’t have to go far in your heels!  Or simply stand on top of our exclusive Sky Lounge and capture them all without even leaving the comfort of the Hotel!  City Chic at its finest. 

With three spectacular function suites, every wedding truly is different as each couple creates their own perfect day.  Our team were judged Wedding Coordinators of the Year in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and will be by your side throughout your journey.  With just one wedding celebration taking place per day you have our undivided attention.

Venue Service

By Daisy & Matthew, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2018

It was an absolute pleasure to be looked after by the Vermont team and they surprised me with a free Rolls Royce chauffeur service on my wedding day! They are certainly the best team and deserve the best award. No only they did what they promised, but also went for an extra mile to look after everyone. Absolutely amazing and simply perfect.

Hi Tanya and Jade Please pass on our thanks to all the staff who worked so hard to make our wedding a success. Thanks especially to Kamila and Sean, they made everything seamless and wonderful. But most of all, thanks to you Tanya for your patience and professionalism, I've worked in the NHS for years and I know human beings can be very trying - endless last-minute emails for example :) The entire team were exceptional. Please pass our sincere thanks on to all involved. Hazel & Kevin

The staff could not do enough for us

We had an absolutely amazing day. All of the staff could not do enough for us and made my wife feel like the princess that she is.

Nothing was too much bother
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Clark, on 30 May 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Mar 2018

If you are looking for a fabulous venue for your wedding then look no further . Jade , the wedding coordinator is utterly fabulous. One of the loveliest people you could ever hope for to assist you with your wedding plans . The attention to detail is unbelievable. Jade supported us so much with our wedding plans . She is so professional and skilled in all aspects of the huge task of wedding coordinating! I honestly don’t think I’d have enjoyed the planning as much , without Jade being a call or an email away whenever I needed advice . On the day she was just wonderful and supportive . The bridal party commented On how natural Jade was with everyone and how fantastic she was with all the kids . Nothing was too much bother . Alongside Tanya who is head of weddings at the Vermont they are one brilliant force to be reckoned with . The Vermont Are very lucky to have them but I suspect they are very aware of that . The Vermont for me was filled with vintage glamour and that’s exactly what I wanted for my wedding . The service was phenomenal. Thank you to you all for helping us create wonderful and cherished memories . Love Mr and Mrs Clark

Vermont helped me have the most fantastic wedding
Venue Service

By Beth & Gareth, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Feb 2018

The Vermont Hotel helped me have the most fantastic wedding. I felt relaxed, comfortable and never rushed. My requests were accepted and I did have an unusual wedding order but it worked for my budget, family and friends only had nice comments my entire wedding day.

I felt in such good hands the whole way through
Venue Service

By Faye & Christopher, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Dec 2017

Organising a UK wedding from 10,000 miles away in Sydney was, at times, a little overwhelming but the team went out of there way to make the whole process as stress free as possible. Nothing at all was too much trouble and the attention to detail was extremely impressive and reassuring. I felt in such good hands the whole way through and our wedding day at The Vermont was even better than we both ever imagined it would be.

Amazing level of service
Venue Service

By Charlene & Malcolm, on 11 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Dec 2017

We Just wanted to drop you a little message thanking you and the Vermont for our Anniversary dinner. Once again we left the Vermont hotel talking about the amazing level of service that we experienced, from every member of staff that we encountered, during our visit to the restaurant last night. Since our very first visit to discuss our wedding, every visit in between the big day and every time since we haven’t once been given any reason groan or grumble about anything. I don’t know if it’s the training or the recruitment team that sets the levels you all have but we see many venues throughout the year and none of them come close to the Vermont in terms of customer experience with the staff. Dinner last night was delicious and we will indeed be back for the next anniversary as well as on other occasions through the year.

I would love to relive our big day
Venue Service

By Clare & Phill, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2017

As a proud Geordie, The Vermont's City Centre location was my dream venue - the backdrop of the keep & the bridges and the accessibility of it public transport for guests made it top of our list. The venue is luxe in all aspects, from the red carpet entrance, the stately Moot Hall, the etched glass windows and chandelier in the Ballroom... The decor is understated opulent and I didn’t need to go overboard on decorations or flowers to ‘make’ the venue beautiful. The food was fabulous, our tasting evening was such a memorable occasion- I follow a wheat free diet and the chefs were not remotely fazed by this. They also tailored our choices which resulted in an exquisite culinary feast on our wedding day - our guests were full of compliments about everything from the canapés through to the evening buffet which was plentiful & replenished swiftly. The DJ was fantastic. The serving staff at our wedding breakfast, the bar, the buffet and even the front of house staff at reception were just so friendly and welcoming and all added to the joy of our day. We hadn’t paid the extra to book the roof terrace but nevertheless The Vermont allowed my husband and I up there for what turned out to be some of our favourite wedding photographs. I loved that The Vermont have a one wedding a day policy, I don’t believe you should have to share as it really is your special day and knowing you aren’t going to bump into another bride and groom was important to us. I would love to relive our big day as it really was everything we hoped it would be and more and that was down in no small part to The Vermont.

We could not have picked a better venue
Venue Service

By Becs and Chris Little, on 30 May 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017

Hi Tanya, First of all my apologise from both of us for this taking so long to email you. It was a massive anti-climax after the wedding, I was in a daze for about 3 weeks, then we have had some struggles with family illness since the big day! It’s been abit of a rollercoaster of emotions. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, there’s a reason why you have won best north east wedding planner many times!! And to the rest of the team, from the bar staff to the chefs!! Everything you did was amazing from that quick cigarette to bringing the morning champagne!! We could not have picked a better venue for our big day, everyone had a great time, even one flower girl who had a power nap and danced the night away in her pjs!! From the bottom of my heart thank you for everything that you did on the day! You helped make a dream come true!! Honestly words cannot express enough for grateful I am!! Hopefully see you in a year for our first anniversary!! Lots of love, Becs and Chris Little!!
