Samlesbury Hall is a magical venue for the most memorable day of your lives... You will be drawn into ancient wooded grounds before you catch your first glimpse of this magnificent black and white medieval building, with a gorgeous emerald green lawn and sweeping driveway. It will be completely yours, exclusively for the day. Together with an exquisite menu, designed especially for you, a Samlesbury Hall wedding fulfils every dream. Their award winning chefs source only the finest local produce to ensure your first meal as a married couple will never be forgotten. With everything under one roof, and historic rooms licensed for ceremonies, holding your wedding ceremony at Samlesbury Hall means there is no need for any travel for you and your guests. Your perfect day will end by dancing the night away on the wooden floors of the Great Hall until the early hours, complemented by your choice of evening food and entertainment. Offer your guests a truly unique stay – Samlesbury Hall’s fully en-suite shepherd’s huts are nestled amongst festoon lit historic woodland, providing a comfortable night for at least 100 guests. For the married couple, with its oak slipper bed and roll top bath, double shower and complimentary fizz & sweeties, the Gatehouse is pure romance to finish the most fantastic day. With over half a century’s experience, Samlesbury Hall invites you to become a part of their history, and offer you the warmest welcome.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

There is no best wedding that has happened at Samlesbury Hall - each wedding we host is just as special as the last. From small parties of 20, to big receptions of 250 - we will make sure each and every guest is looked after!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Relax - let us take the stress out of planning your special day so you can enjoy the best day of your lives!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We are so lucky to have such a striking building, our black & white quatrefoiled Hall is a photographer's dream. There are also several gorgeous spots in our grounds - the manicured front lawn, the rose gardens & the pretty festoon lit courtyard to name a few! Don't worry if the weather takes a turn for the worse, our oak panelled 14th century rooms will make a perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Your guests can follow up the most fantastic day in our 700 year old Hall, in our luxurious Shepherd's Hut Hamlet (they best night's sleep they'll ever have!)

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Samlesbury Hall is a registered charity (no 526052), meaning that any money we make goes straight back into the Hall to ensure it is kept open for future generations. We have been hosting weddings for over 50 years and we have seen families grow as they come back to visit! The weddings we host are vital in keeping our historic Hall open, but there's nothing we love more!
