You will never guess where this is?

Le Petit Chateau wedding venue in Otterburn

 

Palm Trees, check. Lavender, check. Cascading red geraniums off wrought iron balconies, check. Spectacular fountains with fire balls on water, check. The sound of crickets, check. Is this a faraway exotic location? No, this is the recently opened Le Petit Chateau in Otterburn, quite simply the newest, coolest, and most original hotel and wedding venue in the UK.

The multi-million pound transformation of a derelict hotel into Le Petit Chateau, a French country manor, surrounded by a breath taking, palm tree filled, Mediterranean garden is the brainchild of North East entrepreneur Duncan Fisher and his award-winning leisure company, which own many popular North East venues including Newton Hall, As You Like It, and The Joiners Arms.

One of these later tasks is to arrange where your guests will be seated for the reception. It can be a time-consuming process but it’s worth taking the time to organise it as carefully as possible, as all it takes is one unwise move to impact upon everyone’s enjoyment of the evening.
