Seaham Hall in County Durham is a 5* hotel with a fantastic reputation, and has hosted many lavish wedding celebrations – and has proved itself a much sought-after venue. It was first made famous by hosting the marriage of the famous poet Lord Byron to Miss Milbanke in 1815, and has since seen an uncountable number of high-end events.
It has recently undergone a £1.5 million development, and now the facilities at Seaham Hall are even more spectacular than before. The location has always been delightful, set amongst the north’s rolling hills, but now the hotel features elegant function rooms, bars, bedroom suites, and the facilities for creative and truly sophisticated catering. Also, if you fancy a day of pampering before the wedding, why not arrive a day early and take advtange of the beautiful Serenity Spa, which features a 20 metre pool and an experienced team of beauty therapists and masseurs.
Exclusive hire of the entire hotel is an option, along with its 20 individually designed bedrooms. However, an evening party with your guests can be followed by the two of you being left alone to enjoy the adorable bridal suite – aptly named The Countess of Lovelace Suite.
This venue has extensive experience in organising weddings. A range of carefully constructed wedding packages is available, covering a wide range of tastes and styles. The speciality here is seafood, but the locally sourced meat and organic vegetables provide excellent and diverse options for your menu.
Three locations can be used to host civil ceremonies – the intimate and oate Byron Room, which holds 40 guests, the glorious enclosed Courtyard featuring fragrant and rare flora, or the lavish Ballroom, which can accommodate a staggering 120 guests in old English splendour and luxury.
This hospitable and openhearted wedding venue will also provide you with a dedicated wedding co-ordinator and events team, to ensure your wedding is a resounding success. To get the best rates possible and have expert help with budget management, contact Function Fixers here.
