When looking for the perfect venue for our wedding, just like everyone we searched high and low, but everywhere was either too expensive, too small, or came across too full of itself....not Lancashire Manor.
We had never heard of it so decided to drive up for a look. On the way you cut through an industrial estate, which I imagine would put many people off, but don't be fooled, once in the grounds of the hotel you feel like you are anywhere but.
From planning the wedding with the wonderful Gill, the receptionists, the waiting staff, all the way up to the day itself which was overseen by Kevin and Chris, the staff could not do enough for us. They treated us like friends they'd known for years and as though we were the only couple whose wedding they had to organise. They are very experienced and give advice to help you along the way, but just like us, if you have a few things that you want that are outside of the norm, they are only too willing to help.
The Great Hall is described as "The Best Room in Lancashire" and boy does it not disappoint. From the huge stone fireplace, to the crystal chandeliers, all the way to the internal balcony, it is perfect for wedding celebrations.
The whole day went without a hitch, and you never felt rushed by any of the staff but everything still ran on time and like clockwork. The food for the main meal was delicious and the buffet was tailored exactly how we wanted it and believe me there was plenty.
All of our guests were made to feel very welcome and relaxed and the amount of them who have truly told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to is unreal, and a lot of the credit for that must go to Lancashire Manor.
I'm so glad we chose Lancashire Manor, and I can't imagine us getting married anywhere else now, it just wouldn't have been the same.....it was perfect!!!
