Northumberland is a bit of a forgotten county. Wild, and underpopulated, its landscape peppered with history. Many people scoot straight through it, up the A1 on the way to Edinburgh. Or go west to the Lake District. But Northumberland’s often eerie landscape, along with the lack of people and hoards of tourists, make it a wonderful place to elope and then perhaps honeymoon. The emptiest sandy beaches in England, and it’s ethereal woodland and moors, call you to keep coming back for more.

Although I have only lived here for 8 years, I am a complete Northumber-phile. I have put my roots down, explored the county, got wet, got muddy and got sunburnt in equal measures. I would would love to show you around this northern most county of England, on an elopement adventure.

Heatherland and bentland,
Black land and white,
God bring me to Northumberland,
The land of my delight.

Sarah and Michael volunteered out with me on a midges, sodden, low light evening, to explore around Lambley Viaduct in West Northumberland.

Create This Northumberland Elopement Adventure

Hexham House is the nearest Registry Office to Lambley Viaduct and the South Tynedale Way, whose route reaches high up into the Pennines along an old lead wagon way. All you need to elope is someone who can register the marriage, two witnesses (eg your Photographer and a Videographer), and of course your legal paperwork done in advance. From Hexham House it is about a 20 minute drive onto the trail along the South Tyne. From there be guided for your adventure photoshoot, before being taken to your wedding night accommodation.
