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.

Added extras include…

·         A complimentary menu tasting is included with all wedding experiences so that you can refine your wedding breakfast to your exact specifications. 

·         Complimentary wooden chairs, ivory and red aisle runners, cake stands and table linen are yours for the day. 

·         The Vermont owns two Rolls Royce’s, which are included with the Diamond Wedding Experience or can be hired out to chauffeur drive the wedding party as an added extra.

Fab Wedding Coordinators
Venue Service

By Kylie & Ross Dodgson, on 16 Dec 2015

From the first time we met Tanya the service we were provided was second to none, She helped us plan our perfect day from start to finish and helped make it magical. Jamie was then with us throughout our full day and was on hand for anything we needed, nothing was too much effort and she made our day flow perfectly. We can't thank both Tanya and Jamie enough for all their hard work and help, they are both fab wedding coordinators.

Venue Service

By Sophie Curry, on 16 Dec 2015

The Vermont Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding. From the very first meeting with our wedding coordinator Tanya Hedley she put us at ease and took every worry off our shoulders. She is phenomenal at her job. She was the calm during the storm and handled every bump in the road with grace and professionalism, she is a credit to the Vermont Hotel and I would recommend the hotel for a wedding based on the assistance she gave us.

By Helen & Mark Denham, on 16 Dec 2015

Stress free!
Venue Service

Very helpful, fantastic wedding planner, stress free nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful location and gorgeous food. Good value for money.

Just how we planned it
Venue Service

By Samantha & Neil Anderson, on 16 Dec 2015

Planning a wedding is always stressful no matter how big/low key you would like it. Tanya was our wedding coordinator and was constantly in touch asking on how things were progressing and helping with advice whenever she could. I would fully recommend the Vermont Hotel as having the best wedding coordinators and making our day truly wonderful- just how we planned it.

Exceeded expectations
Venue Service

By Laura & Daniel Rush, on 16 Dec 2015

Tanya exceeded all expectations as a wedding coordinator for us, things which potentially could have been issues never turned into them due to her professionalism and guidance, we always felt that she was acting in our best interests and not the hotels. Despite challenges with weather on the day her excellent planning and coordination meant no hitches occurred and the guests never even noticed that plans had really changed over what we intended. At all times from initially meeting her we knew she was in complete control and was integral in our decision to select The Vermont Hotel as the venue for our wedding, we have since recommended the venue to others since then due to the excellent service and experience. A day we will never forget thanks to Tanya and her team.

Exquisite wedding planning
Venue Service

By Katherine, on 16 Dec 2015

Tanya was exquisite throughout, every detail was taken care of and every possible eventuality was considered long before our perfect day. We had selected another city centre venue but felt disappointed by the coordinator, but meeting Tanya showed us that we needed her to realise the vision we shared. We chose The Vermont Hotel because of the iconic location, stunning Sky Lounge & Tanya! The attention to detail was tireless, through every part of the process, even greeting us with Champagne when we arrived, and checking we were enjoying every moment of our day. Tanya tirelessly looked after our every need, and for that she should be recognised as the best wedding coordinator in the North East, by far!

They went the extra mile...
Venue Service

By Nikki & Chris Graham, on 16 Dec 2015

Both Tanya & Jamie were excellent all the way through the planning but even better on the day! They kept me calm were re-assuring and also surprised us with an amazing dance floor that we were not expecting!! They really went the extra mile to make the day as special as we hoped!!

Thank you Eve!
Venue Service

By Kevin Hunter, on 19 Sep 2014

I am writing to you to commend the work done by your wedding team on our evening event on Saturday 30th August. The event was organised mainly by Tanya who has been brilliant throughout. I believe, that due to volume of work, that our event was given to Eve to cover. The handover that Tanya did in terms of our requirements for the day was excellent and I cannot commend her highly enough. The main purpose of the contact however was the performance of Eve. She was absolutely amazing from start to finish. I arrived around 3pm and straight away my mother in law said “Eve has been brilliant” – she was so helpful even upon arrival. She listened to everything we wanted and really helped relieve any last minute stress. The hiccups that occurred (none of the hotels faults) she dealt with perfectly and took the weight off us to be able to just enjoy the day. To come away from you wedding night and have such a recollection of the coordinator, not just from me but the whole family, I think speaks wonders on how she was. The whole night was perfect, the buffet was complimented and my wife also advised me that Eve helped out putting more staff behind the bar to help the queue (which I believe got big). Please can you make Eve aware of my contact to you (incase I didn’t thank her) and it would be really appreciated if the hotel is made aware of the feedback. Thanks for all your help in making it a perfect night!

Sincerest thanks and delight
Venue Service

By Ben and Neil x, on 19 Sep 2014

Following our wonderful wedding day on Saturday 13th, we feel compelled to write and express our sincerest thanks and delight with all the staff at the Vermont. From checking in to checking out, nothing was too much trouble and all our family and friends were also made to feel welcome and well cared for. It was very important for us the have the wedding in Newcastle as we now live in Birmingham. We wanted to share the beauty and friendliness of my native North East with those as yet unaware. We are sure they had the very best introduction through the event at the Vermont. Particular thanks must go to Tanya for her unwavering professionalism, diligence and calm guiding hand throughout the planning and execution of the day. We are extremely impressed with her approach to work. On the day, Eve was an absolute delight and looked after us and every possible detail, anticipating the next step and being terrifically organised. We were completely comfortable in her hands. Also, on the Friday, we were taken up to the Sky Lounge by Lewis(?), who explained he is on an apprenticeship. This young man shows excellent promise as his manner and customer care were impressive. All weekend, the staff on reception were attentive, responsive and friendly. Special mentions to Laura and Tracey for their warmth and smiles! Clearly we were delighted to spend time at the Vermont, so much so I understand my Dad has now booked into the restaurant for mum's 70th birthday in November. I know we have only briefly crossed paths with you, Shadia, but it is absolutely clear that your leadership is felt keenly throughout the Vermont and this is a huge credit to you. Thank you and best wishes Ben and Neil x

Such a great day...
