Discovering quirky wedding venues in Darlington

This month I have had the pleasure of working at some really cool wedding venues in Darlington area – offering something a little different and allowing you the freedom to create a more bespoke wedding where you can put your own stamp on your wedding day!

I have had a few enquiries recently from brides getting married at Jersey Farm Hotel and I finally got to visit it for the first time last month……

I relied on my sat nav, like always, to get me there and the route was fine, I only started to panic when I was being directed up a narrow looking farm road, but after being reassured by a local farmer that I was on the right track I continued a little further until I saw the sign!


Jersey Farm is set in 12 acres of luscious farmland, making it a rural escape, just a mile from Barnard Castle. With farm animals in the fields, The Jersey Farm Country Hotel has a peaceful and calming charm.


I did the brides and her bridesmaids wedding hair and makeup in their spacious two floor accommodation. Whilst people were showering and getting dressed downstairs in the bedrooms, I was able to set up in the lounge area upstairs ready to do hair and makeup.

They have a choice of rooms for your ceremony so you can have your whole day and evening in the one place!




Another really great venue I visited just last week to do one of my brides hair and makeup trials, was Camp Katur. This is the perfect alternative wedding venue that will give you and your guests an unforgettable experience in a magical setting.  It is set within the 250 acre English Country Estate amidst woodland, greenland and meadowland where you will find an all in one Glamping & Camping village with unique accommodation options.

I would usually do the trial at the Brides home but as this venue offers a really unique, alternative setting, and my bride was embracing this 100%, this meant that her accommodation on the wedding night will be in the glamping village and without electricity. We will be getting her ready in a room next to the huge barn where you can have your evening reception and dress as you wish. We wanted to do the trial at the venue just to make sure it will be okay and all was fine!


With a woodland ceremony, a Glamping meadow with an array of unique accommodation for you and your guests and a rustic barn for your evening reception, what more could you ask for!

I can’t wait to return on my brides wedding day to see this venue again! The staff I met were all really friendly and it had a great vibe.

Enjoy your Summers!
