Ideally located in the heart of the Ribble Valley Gibbon Bridge is the perfect place to seal your commitment to each other and take your vows. Whether you are looking for a small intimate venue or a larger exclusive wedding venue for your civil wedding then we have the experience and expertise to ensure that your special day meets all your expectations and more.
Outside civil partnership weddings, between April and September, take place in the fairytale Bandstand situated in the stunning award-winning gardens. The alternative, summer or winter, is the Victorian style Orangery; extravagant and elegant in its design with cast iron pillars, limestone floor, antique rugs, glass roof and doors as well as Vincent Sheppard’s contemporary furniture and David Read’s hand blown glass.
For a smaller more traditional ceremony there is the Cavalier Lounge with its huge gothic stone fireplace and comfy chairs.
If you are planning a bigger day we can sit upto130 people in our Conservatory (or 190 with the addition of a marquee) and the hotel is exclusively yours by taking all 30 of our bedrooms.
This is a unique wedding venue in a beautiful setting offering fine-dining, exclusivity and our personal attention for your special day.
