What could be better than getting married to the one you love than tying the knot at an iconic building that was created out of love.
John and Joséphine Bowes built The Bowes Museum to share their love of fine and decorative arts with the people of the area they loved, Barnard Castle and Teesdale.
Now the French château-style building holds around a dozen weddings a year and is throwing open its doors on Sunday 3 March from 11am – 2pm for a Wedding Open Day.
Prospective brides and grooms can visit our stunning wedding suite, talk to local wedding suppliers and meet our dedicated team.
With beautiful rooms, elegant grounds and a World-class collection of art all around you, The Bowes Museum is a truly unique setting for your big day.
The Museum is fully licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 200 people and can cater a wedding breakfast or evening reception for up to 100.
We can offer all or just one part of the wedding package, from the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception. You can also hire the grounds for a marquee.
Lisa Hall, Wedding Coordinator, said: “It’s a privilege and delight for us to host someone’s wedding at our magnificent venue and we understand that every wedding is unique. We look after the family from the very first enquiry, right through to waving them off at the end of the night. Nothing is too much trouble.
“We have held traditional weddings, quirky weddings, formal and informal weddings, Summer and Winter weddings and will do our best to accommodate any type of wedding.”
