We didn't want a church or registry office wedding, so we had to look for a different kind of venue. The Brandling House at the race course was absolutely perfect as the Charles Brandling suite is a beautiful room to get married in, with its chandeliers and mirrors. We were lucky with great weather, but even so we used the cocktail bar after the service, which meant we could all go out on the terrace and down to the parade ring and track. Our guests could take in the fantastic views over Newcastle and it meant we could get some stunning photos on the terrace and down at the parade ring [beautiful flowers there too.] We also held our evening reception in the Park View suite- and what a view! The room was ideal and the catering staff set up the tables exactly as we wanted.
The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for us [the catering manager even gave us a lift to our hotel just up the road!], the food was delicious [a lot of our guests commented on that] and Christine,Atkinson [the wedding coordinator] who organised everything, was superb. We had several meetings with her before the wedding and not only did she make sure everything ran smoothly on the day, but was extremely friendly and welcoming. All of our guests agreed the venue was great, but more importantly we had exactly the kind of wedding we wanted. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone wanting a wedding in a beautiful building where every effort is made to ensure your big day goes perfectly!
