Katie Byram Photography » Fun & relaxed female wedding photographer based in Northumberland / Newcastle Upon Tyne , covering the UK & Destination Weddings

I am fortunate enough to live in a city with a wide range of wedding venues, from cool bars, converted mills, a medieval banqueting hall to a quirky independent cinema. There are so many fantastic Newcastle city centre wedding venues, that I decided to make a little blog post about just a few of them to showcase the variety on offer for couples wanting to get married in Newcastle upon Tyne. All of the following venues are located right within, or within a few minutes drive from Newcastle city centre. All images featured are from weddings that I’ve photographed.

Hotel Du Vin

Hotel Du Vin Newcastle is a fantastic converted Edwardian building, that originally housed the Tyne Tees Steam Ship Company. Built with red brick, and still housing many original features, It’s a luxury hotel with a lot of character.

There are a few options for weddings here, ceremonies can take place in the bistro, but there’s also a couple of quirky private dining rooms for more intimate weddings, one of the rooms features a fantastic mural depicting a scene from the River Tyne. Couples getting married here are just a short walk away from the Quayside, which is also fantastic for wedding photographs. See a full blog post of a wedding I shot at Hotel Du Vin by clicking here.

The suites at Hotel Du Vin are also AMAZING to get ready in. It was the location of my ‘bromance’ photographs that went viral… see below..

Tyneside Cinema

The Tyneside Cinema is a unique, art deco style independent cinema in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. Couples can get married on the stage of the Classic Cinema, with the fabulous red curtain backdrop.

Guests can also be entertained by a personalised film before the ceremony as well and obviously many couples choose to roll with the movie theme… ticket stub seating plan and popcorn snacks anyone?

As well as the Classic Cinema screen, there’s also another three spaces at the venue that are licensed for ceremonies. The Tyneside Cinema is a registered charity, and much loved cultural destination, so having your wedding here also goes towards helping others continue to enjoy the variety of things on offer… win win!

BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art

Ok, so technically BALTIC is actually in Gateshead…but it’s literally a hop, skip and a jump across the millennium bridge from Newcastle Quayside, so I had to include it. The Baltic was originally a flour mill, so is a joining together of historic and modern. The restaurant, SIX has a fantastic reputation locally for amazing food. I’ve actually had a chocolate afternoon tea here and can definitely vouch for it’s amazingness.

The river terrace is a gorgeous place for wedding ceremonies & receptions. It has full length windows with a view over the Tyne. You can also get married in some of the galleries themselves.

There is a fabulous glass viewing box upstairs which makes for some amazing views and photographs too.

See the full blog post here.

The Sage

Ok, again technically in Gateshead. The Sage  is the huge mirrored building you can actually see in the above photograph in the background. Situated right on the banks of the Tyne, this is a large music and entertainment venue.

There are several spaces on offer licensed for wedding ceremonies. Laura & David got married in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall. This venue is able to provide a light/sound engineer to add to even more wow factor to the day.

Right outside there are some fantastic views of the bridges and quayside which is a perfect backdrop for photographs too. I always love to wander around the quayside taking wedding photographs!

Blackfriars Restaurant

Blackfriars Restaurant is a hidden gem, tucked away in the heart of the city centre, just next to Chinatown.

With a fantastic reputation for fabulous British, locally sourced food, this is definitely one for the foodies. It is situated inside a 13th century medieval friary. They are able to cater for small or large weddings, and are flexible on what menus they can offer. The banqueting hall can fit 50 on long tables, and the restaurant can cater for 90 guests. A bonus is that they generally don’t have hire charges applicable either..meaning, you guessed it, more money for food, yay!

The banqueting hall has a definite Hogwarts vibe too…Harry Potter themed wedding anyone???

The courtyard at Blackfriars has lots of space for photographs and some definite quirky features!

Summerhill Bowling Club

One for the DIY loving couples. This is a village-hall type venue, but situated just a stones throw from Newcastle City Centre, behind the Discovery Museum essentially! Although not licensed for ceremonies,  The pavilion is perfect for couples wanting to host their own DIY wedding receptions, with flexibility on catering. Another great thing about Summerhill, is that it is a community centre, and private events held here help fund this aspect of the centre, and keep this valuable building available to all.

You can also pitch a marquee or tipi on the lawn, giving you lots of space…and there’s a stage, perfect for a band, with lots of room to dance.  See a full blog post from a wedding here.

The Vermont Hotel

The Vermont Hotel is a stylish hotel situated right next to Castle Keep, and the High Level Bridge.

The ballroom is an ideal place for larger weddings, though the Sky Lounge upstairs has epic views for small ceremonies.

There’s a lot of scope for photographs nearby, with the views of the bridges, the chance to have a castle backdrop, and from the rooftop. I feel like The Vermont is a good option for a winter wedding too, given you can get ready, married & party all in one venue, and there’s not a big worry about the weather for guests travelling there.

See a full blog post of a wedding at The Vermont.

Hancock Museum

One for the dinosaur lovers… Fancy getting married next to a t-rex skeleton?

The Great North Museum: Hancock is situated just across from the civic centre, and has a couple of spaces licensed for wedding ceremonies. You’d definitely not have to worry about the weather, as it has a huge scope for quirky photographs inside.  You can have your reception in the living planet gallery, and if you have children coming to your wedding I bet they will be especially awe-struck by everything to explore! See the full blog post of Nichola & Ciaran’s Hancock Museum Wedding here .

Centre For Life / Life Science Centre

The Life Science Centre is located right near Central Station in Newcastle. It’s a large science museum with a separate space for events. As well as traditional function rooms, the planetarium is licensed for truly unique weddings under the stars. The wedding receptions take place within a function suite.

The couple is then able to access the venue after public opening hours for some fun & quirky couples photographs.

Megan & Jimi got married under the Northern Lights in the planetarium, see their full blog post here.

Boiler Shop/Stephenson Works

Boiler Shop / Stephenson works… a large warehouse style space that hosts a variety of events throughout the year. It would be the perfect space for a relaxed & fun wedding… I can imagine how popular it is going to be!

Hoults Yard

Hoults Yard is another large, adaptable warehouse space situated near to Byker/Ouseburn. I actually photographed a wedding alongside a fantastic photographer friend here, and the couple had a completely DIY wedding, even had Greggs pasties instead of canapés. Food trucks & acoustic musicians during the rest of the wedding day completed the laid back vibe.

Wylam Brewery

Tucked into exhibition park, a short walk from the city centre is new venue Wylam Brewery. This building used to house a military museum. It has a growing reputation for it’s events, as well as the food, and of course the ale! I am very much looking forward to photographing weddings here in 2018.

 Newcastle upon Tyne is such an amazing city with a variety of wedding venues and I’m so proud to call it home!

Sarah & Steve got married at The Alnwick Treehouse at Alnwick Gardens in a late afternoon summer ceremony.

They are both big kids, which I realised as soon as we met. They just love to laugh, be silly and have fun together.

They chose to get married outside on the decking, underneath the canopy of trees.

Cosmic Flower Shop provided some unique floral touches, With succulents and foliage creating some gorgeous bouquets. There was a hint of a Game of Thrones theme with the table plan and decor.

Bride & groom preparations took place round the corner at the fabulous The Plough Boutique Hotel in Alnwick.

In keeping with the fun, personal atmosphere of the day, Sarah & Steve surprised their guests with a hilarious animal themed first dance… Followed by Sarah joining the dance floor with her parents for a routine as well!

When Charlotte got in touch about her wedding, it was clear from the start that she was keen for lots of fun & relaxed photographs to capture her & Martin’s special day. Charlotte & Martin met at school, although they got together later down the line. I met with Charlotte to chat over her plans, and she told me about how Martin does a 8 hour round trip to see her most weekends as he works away in the Marines. I immediately knew that their wedding was going to be a very special occasion, with a super romantic groom!

They got married at the stunning Saltaire United Reformed Church, in West Yorkshire. Saltaire is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is full of historical buildings and amazing architecture. It had to be one of the most beautiful churches i’ve ever got to photograph a wedding at.

Their reception was at The Arches, Dean Clough. A converted Victorian mill with high brick ceilings, a real industrial feel, finished off with fairy lights.

When I arrived, Charlotte was busy getting ready with her bridesmaids at her Mum’s house, with Natalie Jade MUA on hand to pamper the ladies.

Martin had a specially tailored suit, with a twist, as it had a Bradford City shirt sewed inside the suit jacket, with his name and number on the back of his waistcoat. (It was only slightly embarrassing when I mistook the burgundy and yellow colours to be from Gryffindor. At first I thought he was a really big Harry Potter fan like me. It raised quite a lot of laughs with the groomsmen!)

The reception had a rustic feel to the decor, with jars of homemade whisky jam for the wedding favours.

The table names were named after special places the couple have visited.

The catering was by Eat Me Drink Me , and was blumming delicious. (Always good when I get to taste the wedding food haha!)

The table decor was provided by Mode For..Events.

If you’ve read any of my other blogs, you’ll know by now i’m a big fan of twinkly lights. Sadly the weather was not on our side during the reception, but it did mean I could get some great twinkly light photographs as an alternative to dodging raindrops outside.

The rustic bar at The Arches made a fantastic backdrop too.

Something i’d not seen before at a wedding was a converted VW camper van, turned into a Photo Booth. It came from The Volkswagen Wedding Co.

It was a big hit with the guests for sure!

Charlotte & Martin took to the dance floor to dance to Birdy’s ‘Wings’ which was rather emotional! Then their band kicked off the dancing and everyone in a party mood.

It was such a fun-filled day with laugher and smiles all day from the bride & groom.

After the wedding, they headed off on an American road trip adventure honeymoon, and I hope they have the best time..

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Manning!

The Life Science Centre at the Centre for Life in Newcastle is somewhere with a special meaning to Megan & Jimi, who visited in their early days of dating.

They chose to get married inside the planetarium, what a unique place for a wedding ceremony.

Over at the Malmaison on Newcastle Quayside, the bride and her bridesmaids, Jess & Leah were getting pampered by Maximillion Make Up & Hair who did a stunning job.

The gorgeous peony & rose bouquets were created by Vicky at Floral Quarter in Gosforth, and were so fragrant!

Megan’s dress was by Mori Lee with gorgeous lace in a champagne colour.

Jimi was nervously awaiting Megan’s arrival inside the planetarium. When guests arrived, there was a shimmering night sky on display. As Megan entered, the scene changed to the Northern Lights, which was so beautiful.

The couple named their tables after constellations, and each guest received a chocolate pop cake from Sticky Sponge.

The three wedding cakes were also from Sticky Sponge including a galaxy themed cake and one with hand painted floral detail.

Jimi’s Dad also created a moon booth!

After the meal, we had an opportunity to take some photographs around the science centre after hours. There was a dinosaur exhibition ‘Dinojaws’ on display which Megan & Jimi were very excited about!

Megan changed into her evening gown, a gorgeous floor length  beaded number in such an unusual colour.

The dress came from Serenity Bridal & Beauty in Newcastle.

As it got darker we headed outside for some sparkler fun.

One of my favourite places  to be is along the beautiful Northumberland coast… so when Michelle & Paul asked if they could have their pre-wedding shoot at  a little hidden gem of a beach they love to visit, I signed up immediately!

I’d already met their dog, Billie as she came along to help them decide on a wedding photographer:)

She loves the beach but doesn’t like the water as much.

Michelle & Paul are planning an outdoor ceremony at Vallum Farm next month, which i’m very excited to be photographing!

We spent a lovely morning exploring the beach, and the couple even put on their wet suits for some fun photographs in the water.

Here’s the highlights of their fun and relaxed pre-wedding shoot!
