The Farmhouse

Welcome to Your Farmhouse Wedding

We invite you to spend two of the most important days of your life with us, where you can leave everything to your highly experienced team who will offer you and your guests their undivided attention, providing a truly five-star experience with stellar northern hospitality.

The Farmhouse is designed for a small destination wedding with a minimum of twenty-four guests and a maximum of forty. A two-day intimate celebration, where you will be immersed in luxurious private surroundings, fulfilling all your wedding wishes. The newly converted Farmhouse is made up of six en suite bedrooms, sleeping up to twelve guests.

A stunning lounge area complete with an orangery overlooking the beautiful gardens and the rolling Beamish countryside, a decadent dining room, and your own private bar, all of which are exclusively yours during our time with us. You will say your vows and start your married life together in our exquisite bespoke ceremony room, or, weather permitting an outdoor ceremony can be arranged in your glorious gardens if you prefer. Additional bedrooms, situated throughout the South Causey Grounds are available to book.

 

The day before...

Once you have parked in your private car park, make your way up the stone staircase where you will be greeted by the team who will show you to your bedrooms. Meanwhile, your barman and chefs will make preparations for your cocktail and canapés served between 3 pm and 4 pm. You can relax in the stunning lounge area, complete with comfy sofas and log burning fire. The perfect space to prepare yourselves for the extravaganza ahead!

As the afternoon turns to evening and after a quick outfit change, you will be ready for the pre-nuptial party to begin. The team will be on hand to make sure you eat, drink and be merry! You and your guests may want an early night but for those that want a much-awaited catch-up, your barman is available until midnight to cater to your every need.

 

The morning of...

On the morning of your wedding day, breakfast is served in the dining room from 9 am until 10 am.  To while away the morning, some of your guests might like to relax in the lounge in front of the roaring fire, or idle in the stunning gardens whilst reading your complimentary newspaper. Others may like to go for a walk in the delightful Beamish countryside, Wellington Boots are available and even a Causey dog can be provided!

As the exciting day begins, your team will be working behind the scenes to assist with deliveries of cakes, flowers, the arrival of the photographer, hairdresser, make-up artist and any other suppliers you may have booked for your big day, so you can relax and prepare for the magical day ahead.

The magical day ...

Guests are invited to arrive up to an hour before the ceremony to greet old friends in the orangery, before being invited by the registrars to take their seats. It is now time for you and those closest to your heart to descend the beautiful staircase and enter the ceremony room, to make your most sacred of vows.

This truly emotional moment will end in rapturous applause as you kiss your true love and hold each other close, as you embrace your life ahead with the best of your family and friends.

The corks will fly as you all move into the orangery and your team will serve your canapés and drinks to welcome you to this next step of your day. This moment can be captured perfectly in the farmhouse gardens, making a stunning backdrop for your photographs and give guests time to mingle and congratulate the newlyweds.

The tables are prepared, the crystal is polished and the floral centerpieces arranged. The stage is set and we are ready for your guests to make their way to the candlelit dining room. The Champagne will be poured for the toast and speeches, and a selection of white, red and rose wine will be served to your guests. The Farmhouse personal chefs have designed a top-class six-course menu for your wedding breakfast – now is not the time for tight trousers!

As the evening progresses to the sound of laughter, impromptu speeches and much clinking of glasses, our home is your home to share with family and friends, dancing shoes at the ready. To keep your spirits high, your team will bring late evening sandwiches and your barman is there to serve you if you would like to linger till 1am.

The greatest delight is reliving your memories over breakfast the next morning before your wedding extraordinaire must finally come to an end. Your wedding team will be on hand to help you pack up and wish you well for a truly memorable life together.
