Introducing Capheaton Hall – where your wedding unfolds just as you dreamed.

Say goodbye to restrictive menu choices and hectic schedules as Capheaton Hall, an exclusive Northumberland wedding venue blends flexibility with tradition, and creates a truly personalised day.

Nestled in 300 acres of Northumberland countryside near Wallington, Capheaton Hall offers a picturesque backdrop for your special day. It’s not just a venue; it’s a canvas awaiting your unique touch to turn your special day into a one-of-a-kind celebration.

Step into Capheaton Hall, and you’ll feel like you’re at home. Unlike modern venues, this hall exudes a lived-in charm, telling the story of love long gone by past generations. The worn rugs and slightly faded curtains add character, making your celebration more than an event; it’s a shared experience.

Exchange vows in the original 1668 south front and staterooms, accommodating up to 60 seated guests indoors. With the Main Hall being a favourite room for hosting ceremonies, the setting seamlessly blends history and beauty for a timeless elegance that sets the stage for your special moment.

Now, let’s step outside.

The 300-acre grounds are exclusively yours, providing a stunning backdrop for ceremonies or receptions of up to 150 guests.

Flexibility is key, with just a few rules – a marquee for dancing to protect the historic home. The Capheaton team is here to help, recommending marquee suppliers for your dream reception under the stars.

As Capheaton Hall is venue-only, you can choose to hire your street food favourites, whether it be pizzas or a traditional beef roast. And the best part? No corkage charges. Feel free to bring along your own alcohol or why not hire a pop-up Champagne bar?

Your celebration at Capheaton Hall guarantees a stress-free and enjoyable experience without any hidden additional costs.

HLN TOP TIP: Please note fireworks aren’t allowed due to the resident livestock, and confetti must be eco-friendly with biodegradable or natural rose petals.

Capheaton Hall’s small, tight-knit group of seven ensures a smooth and personalized service. Your planning journey is made easier with a session from their independent wedding planner, included in your venue price.


Make a weekend of it with our exclusive use policy. No need to rush off the next day; savour post-wedding moments without worry.

The West Wing (need images), included in your wedding package, accommodates you the newlyweds and six guests. Additional accommodation is available for your loved ones, ensuring everyone can join in with the extended celebrations.
