Unveiling the Venues: Spotlight on Woodhill Hall
Unveiling the Venues: Woodhill Hall
Following on from our spotlight on Le Petit Chateau, we don’t have to look too far for our next venue. Staying in Otterburn, Woodhill Hall takes centre stage for the third in our latest blog series ‘Unveiling the Venues’. Music Newcastle have been lucky to perform here for a number of truly unique weddings and events in recent years.
Woodhill Hall is a Georgian country manor, nestled close to the pretty little village of Otterburn in the Northumberland countryside. The 300 year old hall sits on a private estate surrounded by woodland, meadows and a river stretching over 100 acres. You really can get away from it all and treat your guests to an exclusive experience they will certainly never forget. In recent years, Woodhill Hall has been voted Most Romantic Wedding Venue in the North East and Best Wedding Venue in Northumberland. At the end of last year they were also voted in the top 30 wedding venues in the country. They even beat off stiff competition from The Ritz!
One-stop Prop Shop!
The venue really is one in a million, filled with so much character and style. With all the buzz about bespoke services these days, Woodhill Hall really does take unique and quirky to another level. They are proud to offer complimentary use of all the items in their Prop Shop, the only one of its kind in the North of England! From candles and log slices for table decorations to signs and vintage memorabilia to add to the theme and character of your day. It’s all there for you to use how you wish!
For Your Guests Only…
You really can create your perfect wedding at Woodhill Hall. Whether you want them to hold your wedding ceremony, reception or both, the venue can cater for all your needs. You and your guests can also enjoy exclusive use of the venue for 2 nights. Up to 36 people can stay in the 16 individually styled bedrooms. This gives you the ultimate flexibility to use the venue and its rooms however YOU want to. No-one will be telling you what to do – what happens when is entirely up to you!
With no minimum numbers for weekend weddings, anything from intimate gatherings to parties up to 180 people are catered for. The simply stunning Orangery and its views over Otterburn and the Northumberland countryside has captured a fair few hearts. 80 guests can join you in this special place to share your wedding ceremony. If you’re looking for something different you can all celebrate your nuptials in the tropical courtyard. You can even venture into the woodlands or take over the beautiful terrace overlooking the estate. These additional options can cater for up to 120 of your guests to see you marry your Mr or Mrs Right!
The Orangery can host your wedding breakfast with room for up to 80 guests. By combining use of the dining room and Tepee this rises to 120. There is a walled garden that is home to the versatile and magical tepees! They are used all year round for up to 120 seated guests or 180 party go-ers!
At Woodhill Hall every decision is yours down to the last minute detail. Live music is no exception! You can choose to have a pianist to play you down the aisle in the Orangery with the stunning backdrop of the Northumberland countryside. Followed by drinks on the terrace whilst you’re serenaded by an acoustic singer. Then you can rock the Tepees with your 180 strong crowd and a live band to take you well into the night.
So as they say themselves, Woodhill Hall is “Entirely Exclusive & Utterly Unforgettable” and they’re not wrong! We couldn’t put it better ourselves. Their award winning team can provide a wonderfully unique but also affordable venue option in our region. This has to be worth a look to see if they feature on your shortlist. They could even announce Woodhill Hall as the winner of the perfect wedding venue for YOU!
