- Wedding venues in the North (West)?
Westleigh conference centre, preston. Fantastic venue and the staff are very accommodating, I should know I got married there 6 weeks ago. Might be out of budget, depends what you mean by outrageously expensive. It’s part of uclan, and is a Georgian manor house set in 20 acres of gardens.Posted 4 years ago
She’s not happy with my suggestions of Band On The Wall, Sankey’s or Bramall Lane.
Ideally, we’d just jump over a broom at the summit of Elidir Fawr or on Llanddwyn Island, which we’ll still do, but we need somewhere with easier access for the in laws for a proper do.
Needs to be:
Within 90 minutes drive from Manchester.
Not outrageously expensive.
Step daughter hired a barn & farmhouse for hers, which was great.
Plenty of room for dancing and a hog roast.
All suggestions welcome.Posted 4 years agoBreganteSubscriber
A mate his wedding at Bolton School at Christmas a few years back. Absolutely stunning setting for photos and I think they did it for a reasonable budget.
And on the subject of bands. We had a superb swing/jazz band. Very highly recommended.Posted 4 years ago
grum – best wishes.
Just wondering though, how on earth are you going to get all the stwers into the reception
Well, I was thinking about inviting STW people to join our (hungover) celebratory bike ride at Gisburn forest on the Sunday. Don’t think we will really have room at the reception unfortunately.Posted 4 years ago
Thank you Matt 🙂
Stag do will either be Llanberis, Bruges or Amsterdam, depending on the relavant proportion of cyclists, drinkers and smokers able to attend.
(I’d prefer Llanberis, tbh. It’s not glamorous, but we can sort the rest out ourselves 😀 ) .
Hope your Ed’s available for the music. 🙂

I used to do wedding photography so saw a lot of venues.
I liked the Barn at rivington, at least you could go for a ride when sussing it out.
Peckforton castle is lovely assuming the its been sorted after that tool burned it down last year
Theres also a lovely country house hotel between Lymn and he M6 viaduct. Cant remember its name but that was simply lovely.
Tabley Hall near Knutsford is also well worth a lookPosted 4 years agoitsallgoodSubscribercrispoSubscriber
We are getting married in two weeks time in the Ribble Valley.
Marriage is at St Peters church, Stonyhurst. Reception is at the Tithebarn at Browsholme hall. Lovely old stone barn and the caterers are amazing! Really looking forward to it now!
Planning on riding Longridge Fell with my best man the morning of the wedding, finishing up outside the church for a quick photo for the wedding album!Posted 4 years agodooosukMember
We got married in St Anns church and then walked up to Manchester Town Hall last year. Fantastic places to get married.
The Town Hall have a nice room to get married in to if you’re not doing a church wedding:Posted 4 years ago
