Sitting in incredible grounds and surrounded by stunning woodland, Brinkburn Northumberland combines traditional architecture with a contemporary finish to provide the perfect riverside backdrop for you and your guests to celebrate your big day.


Ceremony Spaces

Brinkburn Priory was built in 1135 by monks, who found unrivalled solitude in the peaceful setting by the meandering River Coquet, which gently loops around the ravine. For a religious Church of England service, the Priory can accommodate up to 120 people.

The un-restored Manor House has provided the perfect place for people to rest, reflect and celebrate for thousands of years. The garden room within the Manor House can host celebrant, humanist and civil ceremonies for up to 100 people with a legal signing in the White Room.

The White Room provides space for up to 80 people for a civil wedding ceremony in a minimal modern environment.

Gastronomic experience

The twinkling immaculate tipis dine up to 120 seated guests. You can sit down to a formal wedding breakfast, Country House High Tea, a traditional Northumberland Hog Roast, or something seasonally special and authentically created.

The venue’s chefs Mary & Neil Wilkins from Wilkins Fine Dining use only the finest ingredients sourced from local suppliers to create the most mouth-watering of dishes.

Glamorous Dancing

During the tipi wedding breakfast your evening band or DJ discreetly set up alongside the Brinkburn team who transform the White Room into a glamorous dancing space.

Music played in the White Room is piped through into the tipi bar so that guests can enjoy a seamless evening of music, dancing and chilling.



This northern wedding venue has six beautifully renovated residences on the estate which sleep up to 28 in five-star simple self-contained luxury.

They have log burning fires, sink in beds and cosy robes – the perfect finishing touches for a homely affair.

The Service

The Brinkburn Team provide a professional wedding planning service and deliver a discrete but efficient event.

Their events are relaxed and informal and they create a beautiful opportunity for a Bride and Groom to host their friends and family in laid-back luxury.
