Rustic luxury is the name of the game at Runa Farm, a stunning wedding venue in the small town of Bernard Castle, not too far from Darlington. Perfect for couples looking to tie the knot at a beautiful boho venue, Runa Farm offers its own unique spirit that’s simultaneously natural, chic and luxurious.
This gorgeous wedding venue is able to accommodate both the reception and the ceremony under one roof. Say ‘I do’ in the Runa Farm Chapel, an atmospheric space with a tented ceiling, polished stone walls and shimmering lanterns. What's more, the bride makes her entrance via a spiral staircase which leads directly to the aisle, for ultimate impact.
Afterwards, eat, drink and dance in the Old Barn, a timber and stone building flanked on two sides by private terraces. Indeed, if you’ve always dreamed of including an alfresco element at your wedding, then this is the perfect place for you. Enjoy welcome drinks in the meadow before the ceremony begins, or tuck into pizza slices in the kitchen garden when guests start to get peckish in the evening. If you’d like to say ‘I do’ outside, you can do that too! Ceremonies can be hosted outdoors against a backdrop of a wild meadow.
The food at Runa Farm is all cooked by a team of in-house chefs, who use the best local produce from in and around county Durham. This could range from anything from a traditional sit-down meal to something a little more unorthodox, like a seafood extravaganza with fresh fish and seafood served on magnificent tiers, or a Spanish feast featuring a wealth of tapas dishes. Drinks are just as important, with cocktails on tap, cask ales and fine wines all on the menu.
