Woodhorn: Kerry and Johnathon’s Industrial Chic Wedding

We love Woodhorn Museum for a wedding because it provides a blank canvas, ready for you to go wild and create the perfect wedding theme. This wedding takes place in the gallery workshops which provide plenty of space for a ceremony and a reception and has its own private bar and entrance. The exposed brink walls and wooden roof beams provide a touch of rustic whist the white walls and industrial setting add a little bit of chic to the day.

Kerry and Johnathon kept things modern with an ivory and yellow colour palette that matched perfectly with the venue. These beautiful images have been provided by Neil Denham photography, check him out here.




“We wanted something different, [the venue] also had to be amenable for the disabled as my sister is in a wheel chair. I looked on the Northumberland Registrar’s website for a list of venues for civil ceremonies and we loved the idea of the museum because its part of our heritage – we’re from a mining community and Johnathon’s grandfather worked down the pit. When we went to see the venue it looked perfect and far outweighed any venue we had seen!”

“I would absolutely recommend the museum as a wedding venue, its different, it has a history and can accommodate large or small weddings. 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.”




The couple had the ceremony and reception rooms draped in white for the day with yellow uplighting to really finish their theme. Food was paramount to the planning process, as bride Kerry says: “We love our food and we wanted a three course meal as part of the reception and getting the menu right and good quality was really important, we wanted to be able to give our guests a choice which is really difficult as most venues have one set menu. The museum were extremely accommodating and pretty much let us have whatever we wanted as long as it was attainable.”

“Their caterers were Kings Catering in Cramlington, we chose the menu and they let us go to their catering facilities to sample the food, and it was delicious! Many people said it was one of the nicest meals they’ve had at a wedding.”
