There are scores of beautiful venues across the North East – from urban weddings in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and rural weddings in North Yorkshire to historic weddings in Durham and fairytale castle weddings in Northumberland.

Well, most venues cater exclusively for indoor weddings, but some local venues provide the option for you to get married.

Some options to consider include the following:

Le Petit Château has impressive landscaped gardens and a wild area for the back, which overlooks a lake. You are spoilt for choice if you decide to get married at this luxury venue.
  2. Low Osgoodby Grange in North Yorkshire is a stunning location for an outdoor wedding with views of the Yorkshire Dales. Perfect for a tipi or marquee wedding, you have acres of open spaces, a rustic wedding gazebo for your ceremony and a lake. You and your guests can also camp there overnight under the stars as there is so much space available.
  3. Lumley Castle in County Durham is a historic fairytale castle with a grand ceremony room and a dedicated wedding gazebo and seating area for your ceremony. This venue benefits from having lots of space inside and facilities and the flexibility to hold an outdoor wedding.

What are the benefits of an outdoor wedding ceremony?

Let’s face it, the weather in the North East of England isn’t always ideal for outdoor weddings. There are some disadvantages to having an outdoor wedding ceremony (which can be mitigated with some planning!)
Some of the disadvantages of outdoor weddings include the following:
The obvious disadvantage is that you may have to deal with wind and rain during your outdoor wedding. You have no control over this, so your wedding ceremony could be very different from how you had envisaged.
Your guests may get wet or cold if it rains heavily on your wedding day. This will be an issue, particularly if you have elderly guests or children at your outdoor wedding.
Depending on your wedding venue, the ceremony may be somewhat private members of the public are nearby.

What to do if it rains on your wedding day

Every wedding needs to consider what will happen if it starts to rain or even snow. This may affect plans to have drinks outside after the wedding ceremony. However, the impact could be much more significant if you’re planning an outdoor ceremony. You need a Plan B to hold the wedding indoors at the last minute if it starts to rain. Just about every venue will have this sort of contingency plan. Speak to your wedding coordinator at the venue to confirm what will happen.

Conclusion

I hope this guide has helped give you ideas about having an outdoor wedding in the North East of England. My final bit of advice is that it’s always a good idea to visit the venue in person to see if it suits your needs and to check the availability of dates.

Good luck with your wedding planning. If you have any questions, get in touch, and I’ll be happy to help.
