Sounds of Summer launches at Seaham Hall, County Durham
There's very little that can beat a sunny, British afternoon and the team behind Seaham Hall...
Northumberland's Linden Hall Hotel has seen a substantial rise in elopement weddings in the past months, as more couples opt for a ceremony for just the two of them.
Wedding and special events planner Louise McMaster believes it's the desire to avoid family drama and save on costs that's driving the trend.
"Covid changed the way we think about weddings, and even though normality has resumed, people's eyes were opened to the romance of a small affair," she says. "I've never seen this level of elopement weddings – it's definitely a big trend of the summer."
Thinking of eloping? Linden Hall Hotel is a 450-acre private estate set in idyllic countryside, with a championship 18-hole golf course, luxurious spa facilities and 50 bedrooms. Their Just Us Wedding package includes three nights' accommodation, access to the spa, two witnesses, personalised menu, Champagne Afternoon Tea and more.
