Ceremonies

Our stunning planetarium is available for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies. Tie the knot under starlit skies - whatever the weather - for a truly unforgettable ceremony.


​Coupled with our purpose-built banqueting suites, Life is the perfect setting for a unique wedding day.

For a more traditional affair, ceremonies can also be held in our ScotswoodGrainger and Marlborough suites.

Our planetarium seats 70 and can be hired for wedding ceremonies from £650. Please note: planetarium wedding ceremonies can only be booked alongside a wedding reception at Life.

Larger parties of 71 – 240 can hire the Grainger or Marlborough suites and Blaydon and Gibbs for £200 per room.

Our experienced team will work with you every step of the way to plan your ideal wedding. Please get in touch for more information and to arrange a show-round.
