Wedding team ready to help plan

Anyone who engaged over the festive or new year period is being encouraged to make Northumberland’s wedding co-ordination team their first port of call.

Choosing the right wedding venue can be the most time consuming part of planning any wedding, but the county’s registration team can take the strain out of this decision by providing details of more than 70 stunning venues around the county that are all approved for civil marriage.

From stately homes, manor houses, castles, hotels and halls, there is a magical location to suit every taste and budget.

Last year more than 1,600 couples were married by the county’s registration team in a variety of venues across the county.

Councillor Val Tyler, policy board member for culture, said: “In Northumberland we have a fantastic wedding team who can offer you a personal and relaxed approach to help you with your wedding arrangements.

“They are always on hand to answer any questions you may have prior to and on your big day and will help you tailor and personalise your own Northumberland ceremony.”

A full colour brochure is also available online showcasing Northumberland ceremony venues and providing details of upcoming wedding fayres. Visit
