Vallum weddings are unique, set in magical countryside just a few miles from the city and with a choice of venues from our permanent Paddock Marquee to our intimate Tipi.
Vallum is unlike any other wedding venue in Northumberland, offering the relaxed, romantic feel of a country wedding with the convenience and cost-effectiveness of a permanent, well-established venue in breathtaking Hadrian’s Wall country just eight miles west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
One of the many things which sets us apart from other venues is our flexibility. We design your wedding menu with you, according to your own taste and budget. You might want to go all-out uber glam, rustic country, or kitchen garden cute, and you may opt for a stunning fine dining feast, a beautifully bespoke buffet, or enjoy a laid-back hog roast and a barbecue. Whatever you want – classically sophisticated or eccentrically unique – we will work with you to make your day uniquely yours. You can even have your wedding ceremony here!
Smaller weddings are beautifully suited to our Tipi, while bigger events are housed in our large Marquee – a permanent structure with beautiful country views.
All our celebrations are catered for by our wonderful community of artisans, who work together to make your event truly personal to you. They include our Restaurant team, our growers Ivan and Mark in Vallum Kitchen Garden, which supplies amazing herbs, edible flowers and vegetables to our own kitchens and of course our lovely baker Phil who comes in at the crack of dawn to make sure there is fresh bread across the site.
The site is also home to Vallum Little Dairy, where ice cream and Hadrian’s Wall cheese is handmade to traditional methods, and Vallum Bakery, home of award-winning artisan breads, pies, and patisserie.
We have a Tea Room & Ice Cream Parlour, Patisserie & Delicatessen, Restaurant & Chef’s Room, and we have won many prestigious Great Taste Awards. We celebrate our home grown produce throughout our wedding day menu’s.
The couples who celebrate their wedding day here at Vallum love the fact that the whole Vallum community is involved in making their day truly unique to them, and our artisans love the buzz of a wedding day. Weddings here are incredibly special, unique, and absolutely personal to you. We look forward to planning it with you!
