Your wedding at Eshott Hall, Northumberland
We have several areas licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships within Eshott Hall. One of the most popular locations is beneath the William Morris stained glass window with your guests looking on from the Hallway, which can accommodate 80 guests comfortably. The Drawing Room and Library are also licensed for small, intimate ceremonies accommodating 70 and 60 respectively. For larger numbers, the Ballroom is also licensed. To arrange your civil ceremony, please contact the local Registrar on 01665 602 870 or visit them at Alnwick Register Office, 27 Fenkle Street, Alnwick NE66 1HW. Any music or readings during the ceremony are to contain no religious content. No food or drink may be served or consumed in the ceremony space for 1 hour prior to the ceremony.
Our Wedding Breakfast and Reception will be held in the Ballroom and adjoining Orangery, which has a capacity for a maximum of 100 guests for the Wedding Breakfast and 120 for the Evening Reception. We will provide round tables to seat up to 10 guests per table, a top table if required and banqueting chairs. Your bar is set up in the Orangery and your band or DJ will play in the Ballroom later so we can remove some tables and chairs to create space for dancing if necessary.
