The Setting

Ample space and flexibility are key if you want to plan a laidback, luxury wedding in Northumberland. Keeping things casual often means doing things differently, so you also need a venue that’s happy to break with tradition and think outside the box.

At Northside Farm, we want to help you create your dream day, so we’ll do whatever we can to bring your vision to life. From outdoor wedding ceremonies to our gorgeous glamping accommodation, we can definitely do laidback and luxurious!

The Styling

Planning a relaxed celebration doesn’t mean your wedding has to look a certain way. Whether you’re drawn to casual elegance, festival chic, or rustic luxe, there are a million different options for styling your day.

Less is often more, so you don’t need masses of décor to create the look you want, especially with a backdrop as beautiful as the Northumberland countryside. Think about the overall atmosphere and how you want guests to use the space. Focus on adding pretty details in a relaxed way and keep things like floral arrangements a little messy and undone.

The Suppliers

Look for experienced suppliers and make sure they’re on board with your vision. When it comes to tradition and formalities, be specific about what you do and don’t want. And remember, you’re allowed to skip anything that doesn’t feel like a good fit.

The Menu

We love relaxed dining at Northside Farm and have lots of delicious options for couples who feel the same. For example, our sharing menus are perfect for creating a fun, informal atmosphere. Food is served at the centre of each table, allowing your guests to help themselves. As well as traditional roast beef and succulent pulled pork, we also offer a chargrilled BBQ menu that’s ideal for summer weddings.

If you’d rather avoid a sit-down meal altogether, we can organise a hog roast or farmhouse picnic buffet. Discover more about wedding catering at Northside Farm here.
