Nestled amongst the trees with sweeping views across to Newcastle city centre – The Willows at the Woodmans is a purpose built, exclusive-use wedding & events venue marrying rustic style with touches of sheer elegance and luxe.
Attached to the well established and hugely popular Woodmans Arms in Whickham, we have taken elements of this much loved, family run venue and raised it to a whole new level, fitting for any special occasion.
Your guests will be welcomed on arrival into the luxurious surroundings of our Aviary Lounge where drinks can be enjoyed in style prior to the celebrations commencing. Sumptuous soft furnishings blended with striking chandeliers will set the perfect tone for what lies ahead.
If you choose to hold your ceremony with us we have the ideal setting to say your ‘I do’s’. On entering the ceremony hall your guests will be blown away by the views from our floor to ceiling windows over to Newcastle city centre and beyond. On a clear day you even catch a glimpse of the Cheviot Hills over 40 miles away.
The room itself oozes quality with a blend of solid wood and Yorkshire stone flooring, crystal chandeliers and wood panelled walls. The ceremony will take place in front of our candlelit feature fireplace.
The Willows main reception space is quite simply a show stopper. Curated by our interior design team with quality fixtures and fittings throughout, no detail has been overlooked. You and your guests will dine and dance under sparkling chandeliers, draped with beautiful foliage all framed with the backdrop of spectacular views.
As day turns to night, watch the changing colours of the landscape become a blanket of city lights meeting twinkling stars.
After your wedding breakfast, our team will quickly turn the room around in preparation for your evening entertainment. This offers a perfect opportunity to take advantage of our master bartenders who can whip up a selection of cocktails for your guests to enjoy before your first dance as a married couple.
