Say ‘I DO’ in a room with a view

Bridge

BRIDAL couples looking for a room with a view can now say ‘I do’ at one of the UK’s most prestigious venues.

 

BALTIC Gateshead, on the south bank of the River Tyne, is offering three of its most impressive spaces for wedding ceremonies and receptions.

 

And top of the list – quite literally – is its rooftop restaurant Six, which is famous for its panoramic views of Tyneside and its iconic Tyne Bridge.

 

Six can hold wedding breakfasts for up to 120 guests, while its viewing box – overlooking the river - is an ideal setting for smaller ceremonies and canapés receptions.
