2021 was a crazy year, as the wedding world opened up again, the amount of weddings we had to fit in across six months was crazy, however I couldn’t wait for this one. As November arrived it was time for one of my postponements from 2020, one I was especially looking forward to as they are one of the nicest couples… Laura & Daniel. One fresh and sunny November morning I headed to one of my favourite places in the world, Northumberland and the quirky wedding venue, Charlton Hall. Laura actually works on the events team at Charlton Hall so you can imagine they pulled out all the stops (spoiler alert it was incredible).
From the outside Charlton Hall appears to be a ‘standard’ 18th century hall, like many stately homes in Northumberland it’s grand and of course looks classically stunning. However dig a little deeper and things don’t appear to be at all classic stately home. Work your way around and you will notice a much more contemporary addition, called ‘The Looking Glass’. The looking glass is a stunning and modern room usually used for the wedding reception, featuring views from every direction and for Laura & Daniel beautifully styled by the amazing The Whole Schbang. This room is inspired by Alice in Wonderland (much like the whole venue), hence the name.
Laura and her bridesmaids started the day in the Stable Cottage, located 2 minutes from the main house. This standalone cottage is perfect for getting ready. I think the proseco and croissants helped everyone wake up for make up at 5:30am! Laura and her bridal party finished getting ready in the main house in one of their huge bedrooms.
The Wedding Ceremony
Laura and Daniel got married in the truly uniquely styled ceremony room at Charlton Hall. Floor to ceiling the room is one of a kind, from the zebra head to the clear chairs, funky patterned floor and lighting. It’s a wow room and the ceremony featured plenty of emotion, starting with Daniel as the bridal party started to enter. From the ceremony everyone headed back to the main house for drinks and photos.
An indoor fireworks entrance, dancing into their wedding breakfast, Laura & Daniel arrived in style and the fun never ended. Jäger bombs during the speeches continued to some weird pink shots. A DJ & Sax combo had the dance floor full all night and the atmosphere in the looking glass room was incredible.
The Vault (Did somebody say after party?)
The final hidden gem at Charlton Hall, The Vault is an underground area, now used for an after hours party space. It’s great to have the option for a venue to give you space to keep celebrating (for those who are the break of dawn types) and the Vaults feels very intimate and night club like. Such an incredible space whether to party or even for a late night chill.
