Weddings at Dunkenhalgh Hotel
Whether your dream date is near or far, the Dunkenhalgh Hotel wedding experts would love to help you plan your perfect day. When you choose to host your wedding with The Dunkenhalgh Hotel, they’ll work closely with you to ensure things run smoothly from start to finish, so you can relax and focus on making memories. This beautiful hotel is set at the end of a tree-lined drive, inside a beautiful 700-year-old country house.
The building makes a striking first impression with original features including turrets, porticos and a vast staircase – the perfect setting for a traditional romantic wedding, and a romantic backdrop for stunning photos. Worth bearing in mind when considering the weather if you’re intending to have a winter ceremony. The interior has lots of hidden nooks and crannies which are ideal for your portrait session, often referred to as our signature shots.
There are four different sized spaces to choose from, so you can host your wedding in a room that suits your congregation size. The Pendle Suite can host up to 400 guests, making it ideal for large celebrations, while the Portrait Room can accommodate up to 40 guests, perfect for more intimate gatherings.
This large hotel is ideal for Asian weddings, intimate elopements, and pre-wedding celebrations. The versatile venue accommodates both intimate micro weddings for 20 loved ones as well as grand wedding breakfasts for over 380 guests.
The hotel is licensed for civil ceremonies, so you can exchange vows on the grounds or inside the Dunklaw and Garden rooms. Couples may host a cocktail reception in the courtyard, take photos by the classic fountain, and stroll through the gardens. Evening receptions are held in the Towneley Suite ballroom, a lofty space characterised by antique furnishings, luxuriant decor, and chandelier lighting.
The standout feature of this castle hotel is an eighteenth-century spiral staircase that adds a regal aesthetic to any soirée. There is ample space on the dance floor for a night of partying, while live entertainment and DJs can make use of on-site facilities. Before or after your special day, family and friends can relax at the hotel spa, complete with gym and leisure facilities and beauty treatment rooms.
