The North East’s original fairy tale wedding venue will be weaving its magic on bridal couples this month.

Lumley Castle Hotel, Chester-le-Street, will be throwing open its doors – and lowering its drawbridge – for a wedding open evening, on Thursday 26 July.

And, along with the chance to view its ornate State Rooms, guests will be able to meet the hotel’s wedding coordinators and learn about the 2019 Lumley Castle summer wedding package.

Based on 60 day and 60 evening guests, it includes everything from hire of the Garter Suite or Barons Hall and a three-course wedding breakfast, to complimentary bedrooms for the happy couple, LED letters, a photobooth and floral displays, from £7,995.

“While many venues claim to offer a fairy tale wedding none can match Lumley Castle,” said sales manager, Lauren Colledge.

“It’s a fabulous wedding venue as hundreds of couples can testify and this summer open evening gives couples the perfect opportunity to see it at its magical best.”

The wedding open evening will take place between 4pm and 7pm and admission is free.
