If required, we can also help you with your preparations. From recommending suppliers to assisting with arrangements, we can help as much as you need.

    Woodhorn is a beautiful venue, we loved it as soon as we saw it, something a little different. From enquiring, booking, to our wedding day the service from Nicola was amazing. Highly recommend this venue!

    The team at Woodhorn made our big day perfect. Not just is it a stunning venue with all you could wish for photo opportunities, they also treat you like VIP's from booking, prep and on the day. Nicola helped us decide and plan all we needed and it went so smoothly.
    On the day it was lovely sunshine, we captured many sunny pictures, creating a stunning photo album. They offered a huge selection of packages and everything can be adapted to your needs and budget. We can't thank Woodhorn Museum enough for helping us create a day we and our guests will never forget.
