Information For Samlesbury Hall

Samlesbury Hall is a magical venue for the most memorable day of your lives.. It will be completely yours, exclusively for the day. Together with an exquisite menu, designed just for you, a Samlesbury Hall wedding fulfils every dream.

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 swathe of emerald lawn and sweeping driveway.

Picture yourself drawing up outside on the most perfect day of your life.

Nothing compares to the feeling of grandeur when you and your guests meander through the historic rooms for the first time.
With over half a century’s experience, we invite you to become part of our history, and offer you the warmest welcome. Our managers, chefs and liveried team are on hand to help you every step of the way.

You can also offer your guests a truly unique stay - our twenty-eight fully en-suite Shepherd’s Huts are nestled amongst festoon lit historic woodland, providing a comfortable night for at least 100 guests.

Samlesbury Hall is an unforgettable setting for a wedding as individual as you are and we look forward to helping you achieve your dream.

YOUR CEREMONY - With everything under one roof, holding your wedding ceremony at Samlesbury Hall means there is no need for any travel for you and your guests. The Parlour, The Whittaker Room or The Great Hall are all options for a ceremony on your big day.

YOUR RECEPTION - Your guests will enjoy this beautiful setting with a reception drink and canapés of your choice, and our manicured lawns, woodlands and incredible oak panelled interior make Samlesbury Hall a photographer’s dream.

YOUR WEDDING BREAKFAST - Samlesbury Hall’s award winning chefs source the finest local produce to ensure what you eat at your first meal as a married couple will never be forgotten.
Our wedding manager can arrange for you to taste the menu at one of our open events.
Or why not make your menu a memorable one and choose something from our street food shack? Your guests can build their own burgers... or choose their favourite pizza toppings from our wood fired pizza oven.
Whatever you would like to eat, it's entirely your choice.

IT’S YOUR EVENING - However many friends and family you may wish to invite, 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, this is the perfect way to end your day.

STAY – THE GATEHOUSE - The lounge and dressing room offer the perfect space for your bridal party preparations. With its oak slipper bed and roll top bath, double shower and complimentary fizz & sweeties, the Gatehouse is pure romance to end your perfect day.

STAY – THE HAMLET - Nestled in the festoon lit woods, our heated luxury shepherd’s huts sleep up to four - with en-suite bathrooms, power showers, and solid oak double bunk beds with memory foam mattresses to ensure your guests have a comfortable and cosy night’s sleep. When your date is in the diary, you will receive your own ticket for tester stay in a hut so you may see for yourself just how cosy they can be!

Rachael Malley

Hi there! My name is Rachael and I am the Wedding & Events Manager here at Samlesbury Hall. I have worked in the Hospitality industry for 12 years, specialising in weddings for just over 5. I have a little dog called Max who shares the office with us and on our days off, we like to go for long walks in the country or on the beach. I love planning weddings with our couples, seeing everyone's different plans come together and helping guide them through to the biggest day of their lives. I am very calm and I keep things flowing on your wedding day, ensuring all the final details and finishing touches are taken care of. If you'd like more information, drop us and line. We'd love to have a cuppa with you! Look forward to seeing you soon. Rachael
