Wedding Open Day

Wedding Open Day

3 March 2019 11am – 2pm

If you’re looking for a breath taking and inspiring venue to get married at then The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle is the place to be this weekend.

 

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.

 

John and Joséphine Bowes built the 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 and meet our dedicated team.  They can also talk to local suppliers specialising in cakes, photography, flowers, bespoke stationery, transportation, catering and bridal wear.

 

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, The Bowes Museum Wedding Coordinator, said: “It’s an honour and pleasure for us to host someone’s wedding at our magnificent venue and we understand that every wedding is unique. 

 

“We have held all sorts of weddings from traditional to quirky, formal and informal in all Seasons, nothing is too much trouble and we’ll do our best to accommodate any type of wedding.

 

“We look after the family from the very first enquiry, right through to waving them off at the end of the night.”

The Bowes Museum is closed!


Due to the government announcement on Thursday 17 December, that County Durham is to remain in COVID tier 3 restrictions, The Bowes Museum unfortunately will remain closed to all visitors.

As we have already been shut for a number of weeks and there is much uncertainty around possible further restrictions, we have decided to use this period to undertake some work in Caf� Bowes, alongside performing some much-needed structural repairs to the building, notably to the windows. January and February are usually quieter times for the Museum, often due to severe weather, so we believe that this is the best time to carry out such works with the least amount of disruption to our visitors.

We have therefore decided to remain closed for a period of four weeks following any near-future tier 2 announcement from the government, as this will allow us time to deep clean the Museum prior to reopening our doors once again. We will, of course, keep you updated as the guidelines change.

Your ongoing support during these unprecedented times is hugely appreciated and we very much look forward to welcoming you back into the building as early as possible in 2021.

Do please remember, however, that the Museum�s park and grounds remain open to visitors from 10.00 � 4.00 daily, and that we are currently hosting a woodland fairy trail, clues can be found here.

We hope to be able to offer a few COVID-safe outdoor events over the coming months, about which we shall make further announcements as soon as possible.
