 We’ve thrown away the rulebook, by looking beyond what’s traditional to focus on expressing your style and personality, to leave your guests feeling warmed and wowed in equal measure.

When, where and who can marry has changed dramatically, today there's an explosion of options from woodland ceremonies, festival style wedding weekends, or why not host an intimate wedding breakfast in your garden, the possibilities are endless.                                    We are the North East's leading independent specialists offering  On The Day Wedding Coordination and Consultancy,  

we do things a little different because that's what you asked for.





Your getting married and you really want to create something different, we hear you and we understand every challenge that comes with planning a wedding that's seen as different, alternative, and dare we say unconventional! For two decades we've worked with couples just like you,  together we've built the most amazing celebrations that guests remember for all the right reasons. 

 Teamwork, we've established partnerships with highly regarded regional and international wedding specialists, those individuals who are leading not following in their fields.  Whether that be eco and sustainable floristry, caterers who appreciate locally sourced goods, celebrity entertainers or photographers that dare to be different, it's all about teamwork to ensure your wedding day runs smoothly. 


If your planning a festival style weekend, hiring a village hall or creating a winter wonderland with a blank canvas venue, there's one question to ask yourself  'Who will welcome your guests, ensure everything is on schedule, liaise with suppliers" whom do you trust to manage this huge task?

Dreaming of hosting your wedding on a film, TV or soap set location? If the answer is yes, then we are the team to make it happen. We don't often scream about our achievements but we going to start and get a little more vocal in aid of helping you find your perfect setting...... Harry Potter fans may recognise this stunning backdrop of the quidditch lawn and grounds of Hogwarts. We are the only team of independent planners to secure Alnwick Castle and Gardens for exclusive use - yes we closed the whole site to the public in July. You may also recognise some famous backdrops within our real wedding portfolio, from the tv show The Paradise, George Gently, and The Dumping Ground just to name a few. (yes that is Ben Hanlin from Dancing On Ice creating a little magic)



“From a series of demanding, upper management roles, I realised that the corporate world wasn’t cut out for me or rather, I wasn’t cut out for it anymore. Life in my twenties was fast-paced, constantly running for trains, planes and sleeping in lonely hotel rooms, hitting deadlines and challenging the system…fast forward to thirty-something and with two very small children in tow, I decided I wanted a different lifestyle and role that made me want to jump out of bed on a Monday morning. North East Wedding Planners is my third child, my baby just like my mini-humans I’ve nurtured, loved and encouraged NEWP into the service it is today and I’m super proud. 


So you’d like to know more about who’s behind this brand! Let’s start with random facts that make me human, salt and vinegar-soaked fish n chips – wrapped in old newspaper and eaten by the sea, glamping over glam, gin by the firepit on a warm summers evening now that’s my idea of heaven.
