Jesmond Dene House Wedding Venue Review
Jesmond Dene House is a luxury boutique hotel situated just a short distance from Newcastle City Centre; located with its own secluded grounds this could make a wonderful wedding venue for anyone. It is a Grade-II listed arts and crafts building steeped in history that is now a luxury boutique hotel where you could celebrate your special day with friends and family.
As you’re driving down into a wooded valley, the treeline opens up around you, revealing a beautiful sand coloured stone building ‘Jesmond Dene House’. This picturesque building with its arched entrance to the Great Hall, large plentiful windows and a turret-topped roofline creates a stunning opportunity for memorable wedding photographs. Walking through the private arched entrance towards the Great Hall, the natural charm of the building oozes from every viewpoint.
The Great Hall
Within the Great Hall building you have your own private bar and seating area that guests can enjoy whilst you have your wedding photographs taken, you have your own private entrance to the private bedrooms that are located within the Great Hall building separate from the general public, as well as the Great Hall where you’re wedding celebration will take place. The original fittings around the Great Hall building are what make Jesmond Dene House a unique location for your wedding day and these help to create a welcoming location for your celebration that both you and guests will remember.
The Great Hall (and believe us, it’s spectacular) is a striking location with high ceilings, large gothic windows and log burning fireplace. As you enter the Great Hall you can sense how special this wedding location is, the venue leaves you in awe, and immediately your mind starts planning what you could do in this fantastic space. We could write a blog piece solely on the ideas that we came up with when we were in the Great Hall – everything from a large selection of candles around the log burning fireplace illuminating the room, to a choir on the upper floor over looking the Great Hall entertaining you and your guests whilst you ate. There’s so much potential in this room, for creating whatever your wedding fantasy is, and with the help of the staff at Jesmond Dene House they’ll be able to assist you in making your wedding dreams come true.
