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 catering 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 bakers, who come in at the crack of dawn to make sure there is fresh bread across the site.
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!
Our venue is a permanent marquee built within what was our straw barn. One entire side of the marquee is made up of floor to ceiling windows and glass doors so you can enjoy the lovely views out over our Willow lawn, over the Kitchen Garden and beyond. Our tipi is over 10 metres in diameter with the sides down and offers a great chill out space on the lawn for guests as well as being a perfect intimate venue for smaller ceremonies.
The tipi is included in all prices quoted here and you are welcome to use it the night before for a rehearsal dinner if you would like.
We always give you access to the marquee the afternoon before your wedding so that you can put all your ideas into play, set up your place cards and leave the room ready for the next day.
Venue hire varies depending on the time of year and the day of the week. We don’t have any hidden extras, this should include everything you need right down to the logs on the fire-pits.
