Top 10 Alternative + Unique Wedding Venues in Newcastle Upon Tyne

There are loads of places to choose from and we decided on what we hope are ten very different and unique wedding venues in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Here we go, in no particular order…


1. Centre For Life

Bang in the middle of the city, we NEED to shoot a wedding in that planetarium. We saw Bodyworlds here a few years ago and it would be perfect place for lovers of science to get hitched.

2. Tyneside Cinema

A proper art deco cinema, we love those. Would be an excellent venue for a pair of film buffs.

3. Great North Museum Hancock

Ooh you can have your wedding reception under loads of dead animals, ace. Best bit is you can have your photo with a massive T Rex skeleton. Makes it a winner for us.

4. Theatre Royal

You either really like the theatre, or want to tie the knot somewhere epic. This is the place for you.

5. Laing Art Gallery

A place for lovers of the finer things. You know when you watch a film and there’s a swanky drinks reception in an art gallery, this place looks like that.


A modern space with amazing river views. Less like the gallery above and more like when they flash forward to the future in that episode of Regular Show with the car.

7. Northside Farm

Yeah you can have a DIY farm wedding in the north. We don’t need coats when we have beer!

8. As You Like It

If you’re anything like us, you like food. The fact that this venue describes itself as an ‘eating house’ does the trick for us.

9. Newcastle Castle

Ooh Newcastle has a castle. Every day is a school day!

10. Northern Stage

We’ve shot a wedding here. It was one of the best weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. Have a look see.
