When planning our wedding I found organising the venue the most stressful. As soon as we got engaged I wanted to get the venue sorted as, really, the whole day – the theme, the style and the ambiance – anchors around the setting.

For the modern, urban bride, The Sage, Gateshead could well be the answer. Set just outside of Newcastle, The Sage offers a modern and affordable way to get married in style. The venue offers 3 rooms available for wedding hire.

The Barbour Room with it’s dramatic views of the city holds upto 220 guests for a ceremony, 180 for the wedding breakfast and up to 250 for an evening reception. The space includes a fabulous internal terrace for something really striking. Prices for hiring The Barbour Room start at £1600.
