What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Ask your wedding planner questions! We have helped dozens of couples through the course of planning their wedding with no question too daft or silly, we love to help and would rather you asked - it's not something you plan every week!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Personal vows are such a lovely touch, and I see more and more couples trying to add more of their personality into the celebrations with the centrepieces echoing their favourite cities or hobbies as well as even 'nicknames' for guests on their place-cards. All make the day more memorable and special.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Iconic. Individual. Stylish. Unique. Northern.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Level 4 Viewing Terrace is a sweet spot especially in the warmer months. On one side we have the graphic font from the historic architecture of the building looking back along the Tyne but to look forward, with the Millennium Bridge in the background, it is a photographer's dream and encapsulates the whole feel of a building with such stunning height to enjoy these views.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Of course. But it would be rude of us to share...
What’s your favourite canapé?
Mini Goats Cheese Burgers I love - but our in-house cured Whiskey Smoked Salmon is pretty special too!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Despite some couples moving away from your traditional tiered Wedding cake, I still love that we can slice and serve your cake for guests to help themselves during the evening reception. A little sweet pick-me-up never hurt anyone...
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The glass scenic lifts
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our dedication to sourcing delicious local ingredients and our nose-to-tail ongoing campaign to use all we can from the meats we source.
The food is so important on your wedding day, come to a venue that has the experience and love of local ingredients to make it a truly memorable day.
