Top 10 wedding venues in Lancashire

Here are some of the Quirkiest Wedding Venues in the North West. I love them all! 

Holmes Mill

Holmes Mill is a unique place to get married due to the rustic charm of the setting. If you want to get married at Holmes Mill, you can choose between two of their venues. The Spinning Block Hotel or The Cotton Room which lends from its original roots as an actual cotton mill. It has exposed beams, creating a cosy and intimate atmosphere for all involved.

Wyresdale Park

If you are looking for a rustic and magical place to hold your wedding, Wyresdale Park is packed full of charm against the backdrop of the Forest of Bowland. If you are looking for quaint accommodation look no further than Wyresdale Park’s own lodges and yurts where you and your guests can even glamp!

The Harris Museum Preston

If you want an artsy, intimate quirky wedding reception, what better place for it to be held than the Harris Museum. The Rotunda is where many wedding receptions have taken place and allow for wonderful views of the building. With its Neo-Classical design the Harris Museum will be a brilliant backdrop for photos to be taken, and in the heart of the city centre too!

30 James Street Liverpool

This wedding venue is perfect if you are looking for a classy and glamorous place to get married. 30 James Street is one of the most iconic buildings in Liverpool and at the heart of the cities maritime history. Constructed between 1896 and 1898 by architects Richard Norman Shaw and J. Francis Doyle, Albion House became the headquarters to the most famous shipping company in the world; White Star Line!! 

Bashall Barn 

Bashall Barn is perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors. It is one of the most rustic venues I know to get married in in the North West. The venue offers panoramic views of the Ribble Valley –and there is also an outside veranda, and on  a sunny day they will open the doors for the ceremony to take place outside. Alternatively, if you want to hold your ceremony outside, Bashall Barn also have a wonderous woodland specifically for wedding ceremonies.

Ashton Memorial 

Ashton Memorial is located in Williamson Park in Lancaster. The beautiful architecture would be a perfect backdrop for wedding photos if you are looking for a venue that is sophisticated and grand and with endless views of the Lake District and Morecambe. A trip in to the butterfly house will also make for some awesome wedding photos!!

The Wellbeing Farm

If you are looking for a quirky and unconventional venue for your wedding, you should consider The Wellbeing Farm. Their venue is fully customisable, they have their own “Prop Store” and they even provide games like tug of war, sack races and they also have space-hoppers for your guests to be entertained! The farm has some furry residents that make it on to the photographs too…what could possibly be more unique than alpacas wearing bowties and donkeys wearing flat caps?!
