Full Description
Cressbrook Hall is no ordinary wedding venue. Indeed it's only fair to warn you, you'll simply fall in love with it the minute you first arrive. Set in 23 acres of beautiful woodland in the Derbyshire Peak District, near Bakewell, Cressbrook offers a spectacular, secluded setting where you can celebrate your special day in privacy and comfort, and remember it forever in photographs with the most magnificent backdrop imaginable. Working alongside the happy couple and their families, Emily and Harriet ensure every Cressbrook Hall wedding is specifically tailored to individual requirements, with exquisite attention to detail. Everything can be taken care of at Cressbrook Hall, from the ceremony itself, right through to accommodation for your guests. You can confidently leave things to our experienced team, or we can work with you or your wedding planner to provide the wedding of your dreams. We have three wonderful settings licensed for civil ceremonies; either indoors in the magnificent Drawing Room or Granary, or outdoors in the Floral Arcade with the most stunning views. All these locations will provide the perfect backdrop to take your vows and of course your photographs.

It was the most amazing day!
We got married here on 6th May and it was the most amazing day! The service and staff were incredible- nothing was too much trouble and they did everything they could to make the day wonderful. There is a very flexible approach so we could do as much or as little as we wanted in terms of setting up etc. Cressbrook is the perfect venue for anyone who doesn't want a package wedding- every wedding they do is unique and individual. We cannot rate the team and venue enough! Seriously look no further!! The gardens and views are outstanding and our wedding photographer was spoilt for choice! We took a lot of the cottages on site for the wedding party and family - the views were breathtaking. We will definitely come back for a visit! Thank you so much!!
