Your Day, Your Way

The Ormesby Estate, once owned by the Pennyman family, is one of few places in Middlesbrough with acres of open space. At the heart of the estate, situated in 200 acres of countryside, lies the house and gardens, filled with charm and character - the most picture-perfect venue to marry.

Photograph opportunities are endless, with wonderful views across Teesside and towards the iconic Transporter Bridge.

Wedding Receptions

At Ormesby Hall we pride ourselves on offering unrivalled flexibility, tailoring your day around you in every way possible. The Marquee has been designed with flexibility in mind. Its simple design allows every couple to style their day to their own requirements. Full walls of windows, with views into the gardens and woodlands give guests the feeling of being outside in the beautiful surroundings and create a bright and unique space.

Whether you are looking for a venue to create an informal and relaxed day or something more formal and elegant, Ormesby Hall Marquee is just the place to make this happen. How you dress and design the marquee is entirely up to you.

" The sun was hot enough to melt the chocolate favors, the bar had to do an emergency run to the shops to buy more water (?), but Clare and Gail stayed cool throughout the day ensuring we had the best day ever! The Hall was beautiful for the ceremony, but the grounds were amazing! A stunning backdrop for our photographs, shaded areas to hide from the sun, garden games to occupy the young at heart during the breaks. What would I change? 2 degrees cooler? Slow down time? Other than that it was perfect. "
