Amazing venue and people! I can’t say enough about this venue and the owners. I chose this venue based on several factors and a huge one for me was that the owners Matt and Jessica made everything so easy. As a full time working mom of two trying to plan a wedding...I needed a “one stop shop”. Matt is a caterer and makes amazing food, Jessica does amazing floral arrangements and Heather (the wedding coordinator) listens to every little detail. Our wedding was perfect. ♥️.

We absolutely loved having our wedding at Newcastle Wedding Gardens! Matt, Jordan, and the entire Newcastle crew were fantastic, professional, and made our special day perfect! We chose them for their rustic charm, flexibility, and fantastic food (done by Matt himself). Matt and Jordan were very responsive and worked with us to make sure all our details were finalized, helping us relax the week of the wedding.

Just Perfect I cannot imagine a more perfect day. Planning a wedding from the other side of the country is difficult, planning it during COVID is nearly impossible, but Matt, Heather, and the rest of the team were somehow able to make it more amazing than I could have imagined.

A gorgeous rustic venue! My wedding at Newcastle wedding gardens honestly could not have been more perfect. Matt was AMAZING, and his staff was so professional and on top of every detail. Heather (the on site planner) worked with me tirelessly to make sure everything went smoothly, and was available at all hours. She made everything hassle free, and I was so grateful she was there! If you book this venue, you should do the on site catering! Matt’s food is delicious, and I’ve had so many guests tell me after the fact how good it was!

My son had his wedding at Newcastle Wedding Gardens and Red Horse Barn (NWG) in April 2018 and we were blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for when considering atmosphere, scenery, and overall experience. Matt Mermod, the owner of NWG, was thoughtful and helpful with every operational detail and upon our early arrival, the grounds and reception barn were beautifully prepared.

Matt, Jessica and Jordan did an amazing job making our special day PERFECT! Not only was the food to die for but the staff were incredible and the bar service was great. They had everything under control and made it so that I had very little to worry about during the entire process. They were all kind and accommodating when it came to the frustrations of COVID and rescheduling and were very quick to respond any time we had questions. I wish I could do it all over again!

If you are looking for an accommodating, and gracious wedding venue that wants to work with your vision and not force you into theirs, then Matt at Newcastle Wedding Gardens is the one for you. We just go married there this Saturday, March 16. I spent so many hours pouring over google and yelp looking for venues that were going to be laid back, and was getting very frustrated with every venue I contacted. Finally, a coworker mentioned Newcastle Wedding Gardens and said the new owner is amazing, and one of the best they had talked to as well.

I was just married here the past Friday and it was such a great time! beautiful venue, the staff did such a great job with my table decorating and bar tending the night! I personally went to every table at dinner and RAVE REVIEWS from every guest on Matt's food. I'm so happy i chose them to start the rest of my life with my husband!

There aren't enough positive words in the dictionary to describe our experience working with Matt and Jessica at Newcastle Wedding Gardens. From the moment we looked at the venue a year ago, until our wedding last night, they were the most caring and helpful venue owners you could hope to work with.
