I am fortunate to be able to cover weddings at stunning venues throughout the Darlington area. There are many wedding venues to choose from - both in the town itself and the surrounding countryside. Whilst I wouldn't recommend anyone in particular there are a number that are worth looking at if you are wanting to find the best wedding venues in Darlington. I would highlight the following if you don't know them already:

Bannatyne Hotel

4 star hotel located in a grade II listed Georgian town house but with a contemporary approach in the centre of Darlington

Blackwell Grange Hotel


Blackwell Grange Hotel, equipped with 108 rooms, is a stunning historic 1693 Georgian mansion located in County Durham’s countryside, one mile from Darlington. The Bruhenny Suite accommodates up to 140 guests by day and 200 by night while the George Allan Suite, overlooking the gardens, accommodates 80 guests during the day and up to 130 at night. With access to a gorgeous Wedding Gazebo, you are bound to get the perfect shot to capture your big day.

Hall Garth Hotel & County Club


Located close to the A1, Hall Garth Hotel and Country Club is set within a tranquil 67 acres of parkland and gardens. The hotel radiates a sense of hidden charm and photographic opportunities are abundant owing to the majestic weeping willow trees and romantic kissing bridges within its gardens. Hall Garth is also home to its own Par 73 golf course, spa, gymnasium, and beauty treatment rooms. While the Brafferton Suite accommodates up to 250 guests, the Summerson suite seats up to 140 guests for breakfast and 160 for evening festivities while the Orangery seats up to 40 guests.

With a Victorian façade, set in the heart of market town Darlington, located in the North East of England, the Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel boasts a picture-perfect traditional setting for your special day. It is possible to host events in either the intimate Pullman Lounge (suited for up to 40 guests) or the elegant and luxurious Kings Ballroom. Complete with nine historic chandeliers and modern decor, Kings Ballroom fits up to 300 guests or 180 seated. Overnight accommodation is also available with up to 83 bedrooms for your guests to stay in.

Redworth Hall - an impressive Jacobean style country house set in its own grounds and located about 5 miles from Darlington

There are many more venues I could list for weddings in Darlington. I am biased of course because having a beautiful wedding venue is also the ideal backdrop for your wedding photographs. If you haven't chosen your venue yet then those listed are certainly worth a look.
