Myself and my husband had our wedding reception here at Woodhorn in the workshop gallery (the barn) and it was the best day of our lives, Nicola and all the staff that worked that day went above and beyond to help us and made sure the day went smoothly with not one mistake made. Thank you all so much.

I would absolutely recommend the museum as a wedding venue, it looked perfect and far outweighed any venue we had seen. We hired the large Exhibition room for the actual ceremony, reception and evening, the staff at Woodhorn made the room look absolutely amazing! The staff are so helpful and cant do enough for you, the event coordinator we had was great and was willing to help and support every step of the way. I really did feel that our wedding was really special, the venue had so much character that we didn't feel we would get with a Hotel. A lot of our guests commented on how beautiful the room and venue looked and some actually said they thought it was the nicest wedding they had been too. I would recommend the venue to anyone who wants something a little bit different on their special day!
