Hexham’s new wedding venue on track for September opening

15 Jun 2017

Work on a  £1.5 m scheme to restore  Hexham House and create a new wedding venue for the town is  now in its final stages with the venue on track to be opened to the public in September.  
 
Northumberland County Council will be holding a series of open evenings later in the summer so couples planning to get married can view the venue and meet and chat with members of the Northumberland Wedding co-ordination team.
 
Hexham House is a Grade II* listed building located within an award winning park  with views of the Abbey from almost every room and will undoubtedly be a beautiful and popular place for couples to get married.
 
The house  is  undergoing  a major  face-lift to convert it into a wedding complex, with the creation of a new register office, two wedding ceremony rooms and  seven luxury self-catering  holiday apartments complete with bridal suite.
 
The interior of the building in Gilesgate is having  a full upgrade and refurbishment and every effort is being made to ensure that any work is in-keeping with the heritage of the 18th Century house.
 
Northumberland County Councillor Nick Oliver, cabinet member for corporate services
said:
 
“ The redevelopment of Hexham House is a really exciting opportunity, both for people planning to get married and the town itself.  It is set to be one of the finest register offices in the North of England and  will provide a great opportunity for those couples who are looking for an elegant setting that is also great value for money”
 
Hexham House will not provide reception facilities and couples will be encouraged to contact local providers for this aspect of their wedding.   The first couple to be married at the venue in September  have chosen nearby Hexham Abbey for their reception and evening function.

Prices for a wedding ceremony in the House range from £345-£395  Monday - Saturday and £500 on a Sunday or a Bank Holiday.  Bookings for weddings can be made through the council’s ceremony coordination team Tel: 01670 602870  email: alnwickreg@northumberland.gov.uk.
