‘First UK Helicopter Weddings Take Off in the North East…’

When Brinkburn first told us about their new helicopter weddings, we thought, yes, please, to that! We just knew the team behind this beautifully historic woodland and tipi wedding venue would get it right. Stylish, relaxed and the epitome of romance – we love this elopement option.

Brinkburn Northumberland offers couples an exhilarating adventure combined with the serene beauty of the great outdoors with their new helicopter wedding packages.

You will start your helicopter journey at Newcastle International Airport with your photographer. Anticipation grows as you buckle in and embark on your unique wedding adventure. After a breathtaking flight, the helicopter touches down gracefully on the grounds of the picturesque Brinkburn estate, nestled in the stunning Northumberland countryside.

Together, you will walk amongst towering ancient woodland to the ceremony location on the banks of the River Coquet. After the ceremony, your photo session takes place with drinks and nibbles.

As newlyweds, you will then take to the skies again to enjoy the ride of your life up to Alnwick Castle and along Northumberland’s stunning AONB coastline before landing back at Newcastle International Airport.

Emma Fenwick, Owner of Brinkburn Northumberland, expressed her excitement about their new endeavour: “We are thrilled to provide couples with a truly unique and memorable wedding experience. Brinkburn Northumberland has always been a place of enchantment, and we are proud to witness love soaring to new heights amidst the beauty of nature.”

Helen Burt, Photographer at iXO stories, said, “Before moving to the North East, I photographed helicopter weddings in Canada and couldn’t think of a more magical location than Brinkburn to bring the concept to the UK.”
