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.


For a more traditional affair, ceremonies can also be held in the Scotswood, Grainger and Marlborough.
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.

The Blaydon and Gibbs can seat up to 40 for a ceremony, and larger parties of 71 – 200 can hire the Scotswood, Grainger or Marlborough.

We would love to meet you! Please contact us to arrange a wedding show around. Our dedicated Wedding Coordinator will give you a tour of our venue, discuss menus and help to guide you through what’s required for your special day.
