The best wedding breakfast
All the staff who worked during the reception were extremely professional and the food was delightful. All of our guests have commented on the stunning setting and what a perfect day it was - this woudl not have happened without your help. One guest who has attended several weddings recently even said it was the best one with the best wedding breakfast.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Everything, absolutely everything you did for us leading up to and on the big day was amazing - from your bubbling enthusiasm and ideas, to, meeting our vision and needs.
Our friends and family absolutely adored the venue and the flow of the day. I think Toast of Leed's video does a great job of showing off the venue and atmosphere too :)

A Christmas Wedding
We got married at Samlesbury Hall on the 23rd of Dec 2016. It was an absolutely amazing day - when you have a venue this beautiful there really is less work for you to do! The weather was terrible for us, but because Samlesbury is so beautiful inside, and the staff had done such an amazing job with Christmas decorations, we didn't even miss not being able to go outside. The staff there are all lovely and accommodating, and Angela is wonderful and ensures that things run smoothly. This is a perfect venue for anyone looking for somewhere which is both beautiful and a little different. Thank you.x

The moment we saw Samlesbury Hall we knew it was the perfect venue for us and we were married there on the 31st May 13. The staff were all amazing, through the lead up to the big day and on the day itself, nothing was too much trouble. We had so many compliments about the venue and the food from our guests. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

The Perfect Wedding Venue
We got married at Samlesbury Hall on 11/05/13 and within minutes of seeing the hall we knew it was the venue for us. The venue itself is stunning, with so much history we were sold on that alone however the hard work and service of the staff is what really made a perfect day for us. Every member of the team was incredibly professional and helpful and the food was beautiful throughout. We would recommend this venue to anyone!
