Real Weddings at Vallum Farm Marquee & Tipi

Sarah & Richy

Great venue, lovely staff and delicious food! Vallum was the third wedding venue we viewed but we instantly fell in love with it. It’s beautiful countryside surroundings and super friendly team made it the venue for us. From our first visit up until the big day, all of the staff helped us so much! Vicky and Alice particularly were always willing to answer any question we had and do their best to make it a very special day, which it was! They worked with us, our families and our other suppliers on all our ideas for the day. It was a more affordable option than similar venues but still delivered all we could hope for. Great value for money with all the extras thrown in (decorations, the outside tipi, fire pits etc.) And the priceless personal touch given by the team who genuinely cared!

We’d recommend Vallum to anyone looking to have a countryside wedding for all of these reasons!’

Our wedding at Vallum was simply beautiful. The tipi/marquee and surroundings captured exactly what we were looking for and Alice and Vicky were so flexible, offering solutions to suit both our personal style and budget. Our guests loved the relaxed atmosphere and are still talking about the delicious food which again, was tailored perfectly to our requirements. There was a particular moment I recall while dancing with our 2 Labradors when I suddenly realised how amazing it was that we were able to share such an important day with not only our family and friends but our beloved pets too and the beautiful surroundings made for some perfect photographs. Thank you so much Vallum  Jess & Josh May 2019

Me and James got married on the 30th May 2019 at Vallum Farm. After 1 year of being engaged and planning the wedding with Vicky and Alice we can say our experience was very enjoyable! We had a blast talking about decorations, food and planning the whole day with them. The day went smoothly, and Alice ensured everything was perfect for us! We were allowed to decorate the room the night before which was extremely helpful! We had none stop food and drink from Vallum Farm which made us feel like king and queens on the day. Vicky and Alice are so friendly, and you feel you can tell them anything, good and bad which is a real positive when it comes to wedding planning. Vicky helped us step by step plan the wedding as me and my husband James had no idea what a wedding entailed at times! They truly looked after us and made our day very special. Vallum Farm will be a place which will forever remain in our hearts and Vicky and Alice will also have a space in our hearts forever. Vallum farm is a magical place, its beautiful and filled with gorgeous greens and animals. It’s one of those places that we would call heaven on earth… I suppose getting married on Ascension Day, it’s quite fitting.  Ayesha & James May 2019

To Alice, Vicky and everyone at Vallum who helped make our day  perfect. You made us feel very welcomed right from the first meeting and put us at ease so that we could make our dream wedding day come true. Any questions we had got answered straight away, and there were a lot! The food was absolutley delicious, we could not fault it. All the staff were very frienly and nothing was too much trouble. We had an amazing day and we will remember it forever in our wonderful wedding photos in the beautiful wedding scenery that surrounds Vallum Farm. It is a beautiful place and we are so happy we chose it for our wedding venue.  Susan and Lance May 2019

Our wedding day was just wonderful…. from start to finish everything went smoothly. Every single person commented on how amazing the food was at the wedding and the scotch eggs were both our fave treat! The way Alice, Vicky and the team worked to help other suppliers make my dream vision come true was incredible. I would highly recommend this venue for your big day. Sarah and Chris April 2019

Wow!! What a venue. I couldn’t recommend this venue enough. The laid back atmosphere means as a couple you can thoroughly relax throughout the whole day. The bespoke food, the flexibility with decoration and drinks provides an individualised wedding day – which is perfect for the couple.
To all the Vallum wedding team, it has been a pleasure, and I wish your beautiful venue all the luck in the future – a secret North East Gem!  Tina and Oli April 2019

Vicky and the team at vallum made our day perfect in every single way. Not only is the marquee beautiful and the super quirky tipi something of dreams… The food was amazing, the view incredible and the chilled out vibe made the venue a pleasure for all of our friends and family. The children played all day in the park and had the hugest smiles on their faces as well as the adults who could mingle and play lawn games in the beautiful sunshine. We could not have asked for anything more, you made all of our dreams come true and we are so thankful to have been able to share our day with you. Amelia and Alan April 2019

We had the best time ever – from start to finish! You did the best job ever and totally looked after us from day 1 until the end. Every single person commented on how beautiful and organised everything was, the food was to die for and the service me and our family and friends received was exceptional. We hand-on-heart couldn’t thank you enough.  We will be back very soon to visit thank you again for the best wedding ever the new Mr & Mrs Reynolds Ailis & Jamie March 2019

Absolutely amazing venue and the team were just fantastic! They really did give us the freedom to make our day exactly what we wanted it to be and I can’t tell you enough how lovely the food was! We’re also massively privileged to have been their first ever wedding cake and honestly it was truly delicious!!  Jessica & Wilton – October 2018

Thank you so much to Vicky, Alice and the whole team at Vallum Farm that made our wedding two weeks ago the perfect day for us. The venue was superb and beautifully set up. The indoor space easily catered for our crowd of 130 and the terrace outside looked fab in the sunshine. There were plenty of places for people with tired feet to sit down and the Tipi was a fun twist. The food was simply incredible; we’ve had numerous comments from guests that the food on the day was the best they have had at any wedding! The black pudding scotch eggs are still being talked about and the feasting boards were great fun for a large farming crowd. No query was too big or small in the run up to the day. Thank you so much for helping it run so smoothly and to all the staff that helped on the night and at the BBQ the next day. It must have taken a mammoth effort to turn the marquee around overnight and we really appreciate it. Vicky, your passion for food is actually what made us book with you when we first met!  Andy & Catherine – September 2018

A big thank you to Vicky, Alice and all the team at Vallum Farm for making our wedding so wonderful. You all made our wedding so special and memorable. A beautiful location and such a relaxed atmosphere, which was exactly what we wanted.The teepee was an excellent addition especially when it briefly rained! And of course the food was absolutely delicious. Thank you all so much!  Emma & James – September 2018

We just had our wedding at Vallum Farm. We had an amazing day. All the staff were fantastic. They looked after us and the guests very well. Everyone loved the venue and the setting. The food was delicious – canapés, starters, main course and desserts! The whole wedding planning process was relaxed and informal. It was great to be able to decorate the venue ourselves and bring our own alcohol. We also had Sunday brunch the following day with more delicious food. The staff were great and worked so hard to look after us. We’d highly recommend Vallum Farm for weddings. Rachel & Dave – September 2018

We wanted a really relaxed, fun wedding. After looking around we fell in love with Vallum farm. The location is picturesque. Vicky, the owner is so easy going and nothing was too much trouble. We had the day exactly as we wanted, from the layout, the food, the timings, nothing was an issue. The food was amazing! It suited our personalities so much! I don’t think we have ever been to a wedding with such amazing food. All the guests commented on how great the food was. Alice was so efficient and the whole team were so friendly. I would highly recommend a wedding at Vallum Farm, we had the best day and all our family and friends just kept saying how much fun they had and how much they loved the venue and the food. Thanks Vicky, Alice and the team,  Carla & Dave – August 2018

We had our wedding here on 4th August 2018 and I can’t honestly say, it was the best day ever. From our initial chat to the actual big day, Vicky, Alice and their team worked with us to develop a personal and rather unique day. They were very accommodating and helped us devise a bespoke day that fits our style and personality. Nothing was too much trouble and they worked seamlessly to make sure our day went perfectly and for that,  we cannot thank you enough. The venue is beautiful, the Marquee is a stunning place to get married, the Tipi was a great addition to the site as it gives a sheltered outside space and gives guests the option to sit indoors or out. The garden games went down really well with the adults whilst the ice cream cart was a HUGE hit with the children. The food, there is no other words to describe the food but truly amazing. The chefs work to the highest standards and use the best locally sourced ingredients and the end result was delicious. The canapés were not your standard boring canapés, the wedding breakfast was perfect and the evening meal was served out of the horse box which added another experience for our guests and the sliders were out of this world. The food here is faultless, the chefs are legends. Anyone looking at this page to consider Vallum to host their wedding, DO IT, you will have an amazing day . Thank you to everyone that made our day so special.  Jemma & Colin – August 2018

Thank you Vicky, Alice & the wonderful Vallum Farm team for making our wedding day so memorable & relaxed! The venue is stunning, the food was so delicious and the day ran seamlessly, we really couldn’t have asked for more.  James & Leia – July 2018

From the moment we visited Vallum Farm, we wanted to get married there. It was the first venue we went to and we felt we didn’t need to see any others. It’s like a blank canvas, so much opportunity. Vicky and her team are so laid back and accommodating of any ideas you have. The food then sold it completely for us. We visited twice for Sunday lunch in the run up to the wedding and it was so delicious. Our guests said they’d never tasted such great wedding food! Our vegetarian and vegan guests were catered for throughout. The Vegan guests said it was the best Vegan meal they’d had so far and asked for details of the Vegan Cheese as they’d struggled to find a nice one. Thank you Vallum Farm for making our wedding dreams come true. It was a truly beautiful day.  Sophie & David – June 2018

Vallum Farm was the perfect venue for our perfect day. The setting was beautiful and very picturesque, which was mirrored by the beautiful indoor marquee. There are plenty of photo opportunities both inside and out, and the fire pit puts the cherry on top and was a great place for all our guests to hang out and chat. The food was amazing, we went for the barbeque option, and although the weather wasn’t perfect and we had to bring it inside, the burgers and sausages and veggie options etc were very tasty, as our guests kept reminding us, and the serving of the food was very well organised. The addition of the ice cream stall is a must and was a massive hit for our guests and made sure that people never went hungry throughout the day. The whole day was very well organised and Vicky and Alice made sure that we were always looked after, and there was always staff on hand if we ever needed anything. We would recommend Vallum to anyone who wants the perfect, relaxed countryside wedding, you won’t be disappointed!  Hannah & Joel – June 2018

Hi Vicky & team, Gary and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. We both had an amazing day and received so many compliments on how lovely the food was. Please can you also pass on our thanks to all the team. They were excellent and the day ran so smoothly. I’m sure it won’t be long until we will be back for another visit. Thanks again.  Nicola & Gary – March 2018

My husband and I got married here and I don’t even know where to start, this place is truly amazing, the marquee looked stunning, it is the most perfect venue for a memorable wedding! The staff were friendly, helpful, and professional, the food was absolutely fantastic, everyone commented on it (and still are) especially the scotch eggs on our afternoon tea, plus all the delicious scones and cakes, we were so pleased we chose the afternoon tea! As for the evening snack, we had pies, steak and ale, and chicken and leek, we’ve never heard the end of it from our guests on how nice they were! A few people had several and then took some home! The day ran so smoothly from start to finish, exactly how I had hoped. I cannot thank Vicky and her staff enough for ensuring our day was perfect!  Emma & Chris – March 2018

Where do we start with this fantastic venue, from the moment we seen the venue we just knew we were going to get married here! The venue offered the rustic farm wedding we had always hoped for, in the most amazing grounds. The marquee in the barn was stunning, the modern feel instead is not what people expect. The staff, and particularly Vicky, were brilliant. Nothing we asked for was an issue and Vicky was always on hand, or email, to answer our questions. Vicky helped us arrange all the little details and has a lovely selection of decoration free to use. We were all set for our special day… But then the Beast from the East hit us and it looked like our wedding would be postponed as Vallum Farm was impassable to most traffic! Vicky and the team went above and beyond to make our wedding happen, from travelling to Durham to collect  chefs and staff to clearing the mounts of snow on the farm! And wow what a beautiful snowy wedding we had. We honestly cannot recommend this venue and the staff enough. Our guests were blown away with the stunning venue and lovely staff. Vallum Farm gave us the wedding we wanted and more!  Hannah & Andrew – May 2018
