The very best pick of wedding entertainers in Yorkshire and the North East!

The pleasant hills and satanic mills of Yorkshire and the North East offer some of the most breathtaking scenery in the UK – so it’s no wonder enamoured couples flock here every year to exchange their vows!

The sprawling, magnificent Alnwick Castle and the whimsical Bamburgh Castle are stunning historical landmarks for couples to tie the knot, but let’s not forget the profusion of contemporary wedding venues either. The National Glass Centre and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art offer quirky settings for newlyweds, and there can be no better backdrop for your wedding album than the dramatic North York Moors, scenic Yorkshire Dales, and the vast and otherworldly Northumberland National Park.

Any land this rich in history must also enjoy a wealth of musical heritage behind it! Sheffield is well known for churning out heavyweight vocalist Joe Cocker, rock band Arctic Monkeys, and Phil Oakey with his new wave band The Human League. Northumberland, meanwhile, enjoys status as being the birthplace of legendary singer-songwriter Sting.

Continuing this legacy, we’re proud to present a selection of the most talented and professional wedding bands for hire in the North East. From the teeming streets of Sheffield to the mouth of the ancient Tyne, these bands are all ready to travel across the region and provide an irresistible night of live entertainment for any kind of celebration.

Check out all the artists below, and if you’ve got any questions when it comes to booking live entertainment for your big day, head on over to Entertainment Nation!

  • Groom's view - the best things about marriage: "Looking at my ring finger every day to see the ring and what it means to us. Being able to introduce Rowena as my Wife as opposed to the girlfriend! Having the lady that I fell in love with at pretty much first glance now being my wife. Coming home after work and just talking to one another spending time as a three with our 3 and a half year old daughter."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
