"Today’s wedding had style in abundance; from Faye & her incredible dress, Jo Malone scents, gorgeously understated & elegant Bridesmaids combined with incredible flowers; to Alan & the guys – the pale grey colour scheme & knitted ties for the boys; his checked suit, pocket watch – it all worked today, & every element was done with style in the incrediblesurroundings of Le Petit Chateau."

"Northumberland is one of the most beautiful parts of the English countryside. Le petit Chateau provided this amazingly rustic background that served as the perfect platform for Holly & Peter. Holly’s colour palette was based in neutrals: primarily gold, black & champagne."

Love My Dress - June 2017

“I wanted our wedding to have a modern romantic feel to it and the pinks and greys we decided to use in our colour scheme came from this.  We also decided to keep the styling fairly whimsical and unstructured to suit the venue, with a hint of Mediterranean too. We took a huge gamble and booked Le Petit Chateau soon after getting engaged but before it was anywhere near complete, so while we had seen artist’s impressions, we really didn’t know what we were going to get.  We had, however, been to the sister venue and loved it so we knew it would be amazing.”

"I knew Frankie and Alan’s wedding at Le Petit Chateau was going to be a goodie.  Not only was it absolutely beautiful but they had to organise it in super quick time, six months to be precise!  These two love to travel and when Frankie had got the news that she’d got a job in the U.S they realised they had to get their skates on and organise it. I can’t tell you how much of an amazing job they did with it all.  Le Petit Chateau is a beautiful venue but they still managed to put their own stamp on it with personal touches here and there.  I loved the table of old black and white pictures of grandparents, some taken on their wedding days, surrounded by fresh flowers.

La Belle Époque, the gorgeous French Chapel room, was where Frankie and Alan got married and what a romantic room to say your ‘I dos’.  I think it’s the most beautiful ceremony room in the North East!"

Perfect North East Wedding - January 2017

"Le Petit Chateau is a unique Country Manor hotel that offers charm and elegance from the moment you walk in. It’s not hard to see why this is becoming one of the most popular wedding venues in the North East, from it’s luxurious grounds to it’s shabby chic decor – it’s a venue that is sure to get your guests talking.

The feeling of exclusivity as we made our way through the hotel was something that we both noticed, unlike your ‘regular’ hotel this place made us feel that you were the only ones here.

The hotel is full of bold pieces of furniture, from the large mirrors to the giant air diffuser – the attention to detail throughout the hotel shows the dedication and style that this hotel has to creating a Perfect Wedding venue."

"Last week I was granted exclusive access to Le Petit Chateau in Otterburn, Northumberland  for 24 hours, I took along my lovely friend Laura from Sharpe Recruitment and we could not believe just how lucky we were to be not only one of the first guests to stay there but also to be pretty much the only guests staying at the chateau that evening.  We found out that it had only just been decided that the chateau is to be used as a hotel as well as an amazing wedding venue which makes me perhaps the happiest travel writer around about that decision because a more magical enchanting place you could not dream of staying!"

"Martha and Tom had an interesting job choosing a Le Petit Chateau wedding photographer as when they were looking there weren’t any, not a single person had shot there and the venue was still under construction...I met up with them for a walk around Le Petit Chateau not long after completion and it totally surpassed my already high expectations, what a stunning place!  I think I was nearly as excited as them for the big day!"

"All weddings to me are special but when your trusted second and right hand man (woman) gets married and asks you to capture her big day then it becomes just a little bit more ‘closer to home’. Lyndsey has been my assistant at nearly every wedding for the last 3 years and has helped my business become what it is today…So it was a massive honour she chose me to document her wedding to Chris.

They chose the fantastic new Le Petit Chateau as their wedding venue and what a venue it is! Le Petit Chateau is a quirky and unique country manor hotel in the heart of the Northumberland countryside at Otterburn and it proved to be the perfect backdrop for their big day."

They are adjoined by the William de Percy Inn and Restaurant which have also been tastefully refurbished and luxurious boutique rooms for the wedding party and guests.  I was totally blown away by the attention to detail and excellent quality."
