Full Description
Set in the heart of Newcastle’s cultural quarter, The Biscuit Factory offers couples a truly unique backdrop to their special day unlike anything else you’ll find in the city. Located in the Ouseburn Valley, The Biscuit Factory is an art, craft and design gallery housed within a former Victorian warehouse that dates back to the 1860s. Inside, you’ll find a stunning collection of contemporary work, encompassing everything from original paintings and prints to glass, ceramics and even jewellery. Exposed brickwork and original ceiling beams all add to the character of this beautiful space and it’s easy to see why the venue was shortlisted for Best City Venue in the 2016 UK Wedding Awards. Adjoining the main gallery is the venue’s purpose-built function suite, The Biscuit Room, one of the largest venues in Newcastle. Best described as a blank canvas – this room can be re-imagined into the wedding of your dreams.

The most amazing and memorable day!
Thank you so much for everything you did in preparation for our wedding day. We had an amazing day, never stopped smiling, which wasn't by chance – everything was perfectly organised so all we had to do was turn up and enjoy!

Amazing Experience
We booked the Biscuit Factory Gallery for our ceremony and the biscuit room for our reception ( 5.10.19) , all of the staff were amazing throughout. Especially Faye and Michael ! Faye knew exactly what sort of look we were aiming for and how we wanted our day/ night to go, she was amazing. Nothing was too much to ask Michael through out the day, equally he knows his job inside and out. We had such a lovely day and night and would recommend the stunning venue and second to none service to anyone. Thank you all again!

What a Day!
We can't recommend The Biscuit Factory highly enough. We were looking for somewhere we could have a relaxed and intimate wedding and felt it fit the bill as soon as we looked around. The gallery space is a beautiful place to hold a ceremony - it felt really stylish and elegant and was a lovely backdrop for fizz and photos after the ceremony, The Biscuit Factory provided us with fantastic food which loads of guests commented on and an intimate and beautiful space for our reception for 54. At night it provided an ideal party venue with a perfectly sized dance floor, great bar, comfy seats for older guests and a candlelit outdoor space that was a joy on the warm summer night we got married. Faye was a fantastic wedding co-ordinator; we completely trusted her to get everything right, nothing was a hassle and she and Michael provided a really calm presence and helped run our day flawlessly. Getting married here honestly did surpass all our expectations and gave us what we agreed was the best day of our lives!

The Perfect Day
We have had so many people say how much they liked the venue and enjoyed the wedding. The ceremony space looked beautiful and went without a hitch, we couldn’t have asked for it to go better. The surrounding area and gallery were perfect for the photos, Paula has sent a few preview shots and they look incredible. So many people have told us that it was the best wedding food they have ever had and we both agreed, your kitchen team should be very proud of that. Everything was perfect with the day and we want to thank you so much again, everyone had an amazing time.

A perfect stress free experience
We booked the biscuit factory a few years before our wedding as it seemed to be the perfect venue for our location, vibe and budget. We wanted a relaxed, simple ceremony and a fun party and that is exactly what we got. Faye had a fantastic, professional and calming presence and we felt 100% confident in her ability to run our special day. Nothing was ever too much for the staff at the venue and they did everything we could of wanted and more. Could not recommend enough. Thank you for being part of the best day of our lives.

Unforgettable.
The Biscuit Factory was definitely the right place for us to get married. We had our ceremony in the gallery - a must if you choose to get married here. We adored the industrial setting surrounded by contemporary art work. Afterwards, the Biscuit Room was a great location for the reception - the minimalist style allowed us to really put our own stamp on the design of the room. The Biscuit Factory team were incredible and the events co-ordinator Katie made the journey from the beginning of planning to the execution of the day extremely calming and easy. Furthermore, the food at the reception was outstanding and the flexibility given for choosing the menu was highly appreciated. We thank the Biscuit Factory team for an unforgettable day - a day exactly how we envisioned.
