    Gareth and Nicola

    I was lucky to get married at Kielder Waterside and what a wedding it was! A beautiful ceremony with the stunning backdrop of the reservoir made the whole day magical. The service and food was superb and the décor made it feel like a magical forest with lights twinkling and an added bonus of the enchanting snow. Waking up on the morning of our day right through to the end was out of this world, and the dedicated team could do not do enough for me.
