Samlesbury Hall - Weddings

On approaching historic Samlesbury Hall, you are drawn into ancient wooded grounds before you catch your first glimpse of this magnificent black and white medieval building, with its swath of emerald lawn and sweeping driveway. Picture yourself drawing up outside on the most perfect day of your life…

Samlesbury Hall has hosted weddings for over fifty years and they now invite you to become part of their history. They offer the warmest welcome and are here to help your plans come to life and assist with the smallest details which makes the biggest day possible. 

The Hall and the immediate grounds are available to you exclusively on Fridays, Saturdays and other days by special request.

With everything under one roof, holding your ceremony at Samlesbury Hall means there is no need for any travel between venues for you and your guests. The Whittaker Room is licensed for up to 90, with original windows from nearby Whalley Abbey and beautifully carved panelling. Originally a private chapel for the families who lived in Samlesbury, this gorgeous room has been sympathetically converted and sanctioned to hold civil ceremonies. For bigger parties, the 14th century Great Hall is licensed for up to 120, or for a more intimate wedding ceremony, the Parlour is ideal for up to 25 people.

With their beautiful grounds and versatile indoor spaces, they can adapt to suit any weather. During the reception whilst your photographer is documenting your day, your guests can mingle whist indulging in a choice of canapés and drinks. With oak panelled ceilings and a spectacular Tudor fireplace, the Parlour is an ideal setting.

Once the formalities are concluded, you will join your guests for the wedding breakfast in the fabulous Great Hall (dating back to 1325). The team of chefs have been busy behind the scenes preparing your first meal as a married couple. They insist on only the finest ingredients, sourced wherever possible from the kitchen gardens and local Lancashire producers.

After your wedding breakfast is over, it’s time for the evening celebrations to begin. You will be invited into the lounge for coffees whilst the staff prepare the Great Hall for the evening event. The licensed bar is open until midnight, but can be extended until 1am on request.


The beautiful bridal lodge is sumptuously decorated and is the ideal way to end your perfect day.

The grand bathroom and large dressing room accommodates not only the bride, but on the day her bridesmaids too, making this a superb place to get ready.

A short walk away from the Hall will take you to the shepherd’s huts; a festoon-lit hamlet bursting with character.

Let your guests retreat to this quiet corner of the grounds after dancing the night away under the chandelier in the Great Hall.  Up to four guests can stay in each en-suite hut, with cosy double beds arranged in bunks made from the finest European oak.  Your winter wedding guests will be cosy and warm with the central heating on, while in the warmer months the huts’ unique lining will keep the heat outside.  

Greet your friends and family on your first morning as a married couple in the restaurant for the best breakfast Lancashire has to offer (awarded Taste Lancashire’s highest award). Their Full English is packed with local produce, including eggs from their own hens.
