Here’s a few reasons why Life is sweet!

  • We’re located in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, a few minutes’ walk from Central Station (rail) and public transport links.
  • Our team – professional, versatile, friendly and dedicated to making your day perfect.
  • We host ONE wedding per day – so you can be sure that your big day will be our top priority.

  • For your ceremony, we have a variety of rooms from traditional suites which can accommodate up to 160 guests, to our stunning planetarium which provides an out-of-this-world experience.

Just want to say thanks for all your help in organising everything, it went so smoothly and we can’t thank you enough. We had a superb day, all our guests were full of praise for the venue and the staff and all really enjoyed themselves.

We can't begin to thank you and your colleagues enough for helping to make our daughter Jenny's wedding such a huge success on Saturday. From guiding and supporting Jenny throughout the day to fishing out a friend's pearl earing from the U-bend in a sink in the ladies toilet - nothing was too much

Everything ran seamlessly and I know, having arranged quite a number of events myself, that this does not happen without considerable planning, expertise and thoughtfulness. I cannot express how grateful we are to you and your colleagues for their professionalism, friendliness and kindness.

Everybody who attended, both during the day and the evening had a wonderful and indeed joyful day, we have had so many wonderful comments and precious memories. The moment we arrived you were there to greet and reassure us and your colleagues facilitated every step of the way. The food was absolutely superb so another huge thanks to the catering team and the staff who waited on - we hardly noticed they were there - they did their job so efficiently.

I cannot recommend The Life Centre banqueting and conference facilities enough for this kind of event. The planetarium provided such a special and serene setting for the ceremony. We were able to make it our own, very precious and personalised event, and was a day that all those who attended will never forget.

had to offer. One thing everyone was amazed at was the food! It was absolutely fantastic as far as buffets go, the little cottage pies were the star of the show!”
