Newton Hall, at Newton-by-the-Sea, is one of eight venues shortlisted in the Best Coastal Wedding Venue category.

Meanwhile, a major wedding fair is to be held on February 5, providing the perfect opportunity for couples planning their big day to meet local wedding suppliers and find everything they need for their perfect day, under one roof.
The event is being organised by Northumberland County Council and Active Northumberland from 11am to 3pm at Ponteland Leisure Centre.
Cllr Val Tyler said: “Planning a wedding or civil ceremony can be overwhelming as well as time consuming. The air aims to ease the planning process by providing the opportunity for couples to come along to meet and talk to many local businesses involved in the wedding industry in one venue.”
