Brinkburn Northumberland

INTRODUCTION


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.

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.

 

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.

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

For a religious Church of England service, the Priory can accommodate up to 120 people.

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.

Thank you to all at Team Brinkburn for the most amazing wedding weekend in October! Meeting Suzette at the very first (of many) open weekends started off our experience how it was to go on… She was so welcoming and warm and so were the whole team throughout everything! Each open weekend we felt like more and more part of the Brinkburn family. We saw it in so many layouts! No question was too small, too silly or too much to ask. Leah, you’re an actual goddess! Even before all the Covid changes, you were absolutely on it! All of our questions were answered so efficiently and nicely and you gave us plenty of ideas and suggestions along the way. Then… Covid! Your whole team were superb, and moved heaven and earth so far for us to get the day we (re-re-re-)imagined. You all took time to chat to us and find out our priorities, how to adapt the day/weekend to 30 guests down from 80, and even when a week before and we had to go down to 15, you made it so easy for us. I loved that I asked you for suggestions on how to arrange the ceremony room for 15 and I had hand-drawn plans, (3 of them!) within about an hour to choose from! Amazing! Even a shoulder to cry on (virtually), or someone to share ideas with and hear suggestions from, you were everything! With confetti not really being covid-secure, Emma suggested ribbon wands which did feature in our day. You also gave me a voice on local radio to discuss the restrictions and how they were affecting our day. Now to the actual wedding weekend! From arriving, and guests checking in and to the rehearsal, you and the team were so friendly and helpful, and couldn’t do enough to help. You made it all seamless. The morning of the wedding, just pottering in the background so that everything happened smoothly was fantastic! Even the team holding up umbrellas for me heading into the ceremony room as it was raining, to others holding them up against the windows so no guests could sneak a look, it was all so effortless. Moving the decorations was all seamless and perfectly managed. I knew letting Leah have creative licence of where to put the decorations in case of bad weather was a fab idea, and she delivered! The bar staff were friendly to our guests, even to my Dad as he just bought the full bottle of Southern Comfort… Allowing us to adapt the cocktail menu to have Pina coladas was brilliant, certainly made my day (amongst you know, getting married 😛 ) and a few others’! Managing the order of the day, and the transitions between each part was fantastic. And at the end of the night, the ‘deconstruction’ was so subtle I barely noticed until the end of the final song. Thank you for allowing us to have such an amazing wedding among all the circumstances in the world at the moment. It may not have been what we originally dreamt, but it was absolutely the most perfect day we could have ever imagined. Thank you thank you thank you.

How lucky were we when we happened upon Brinkburn Priory, Northumberland, during our search for the perfect wedding venue? Everything from start to finish was faultless in every way. The staff are so amazing particular thanks to Leanne and Emma for being on hand the whole weekend, you are stars! Brinkburn Priory is tucked away in a beautiful tranquil spot of Northumberland, Longframlington. The wedding venue is sympathetic to the natural beauty of Brinkburn. To spend a wonderful weekend here, celebrating our daughters marriage Stephanie to Hamish, will live in our memories forever. Just look at how happy the beautiful bride and groom are, thank you. With much gratitude to you all.

THANK YOU so much for our beautiful wedding. There’s not a thing I would’ve changed! Everyone still talks about it! Food was amazing, staff were faultless! They ever arranged the weather! I was in the early stages of pregnancy at the time and staff made sure I always had a non alcoholic drink so no one knew! We visited on our anniversary, this time with our son and got him christened by James, who married us!

After searching Northumberland for our wedding venue and finding nothing that ticked all the boxes we arrived at brinkburn and immediately fell in love with it, from the charming stables and tipi, the magnificent priory and Manor House surrounded by peaceful gardens, woodland and having such a relaxing feel about the place we knew it was for us! From start to finish everyone worked exceptionally hard to make our day as perfect as possible and there really wasn’t anything we would have had different, our day was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have wished for anything more from the whole team, thank you so much to Leah for coordinating everything (which wasn’t the easiest of tasks as were certainly not the most organised people ourselves!) you did a cracking job and we appreciated everything you did to make our day exactly as we wanted it! Our guests kept asking where we managed to find such a beautiful place and they couldn’t believe how incredible it was! We will definitely be coming back here to visit as it was just a magical weekend! Thank you all so much!
