- An Introduction -
Built in 1507, this stunning historic hall is still lived in by the Parker family. In the same rural setting, and built 300 years ago, is the Tithe Barn which has been beautifully restored for wedding ceremonies, receptions and evening parties.
At Browsholme we don’t have a standard format as we want to help you create your dream wedding, perfectly tailored to your ideas and preferences. The style of menu, seating, decorations, flowers, wine - perhaps a cocktail or gin bar - music and other entertainment is your choice. Our very experienced caterers provide flawless organisation with delicious award winning food, delivered by a team of highly personable and professional staff.
- Two Magnificent Spaces -
We have two beautiful rooms that are licensed for civil ceremonies. Partnerships, same sex marriages and weddings for all faiths are welcome at Browsholme. Either the rustic beauty of the Tithe Barn, or the historic elegance of the Regency Drawing room will provide the backdrop to the most important moment in your life.
Stone built, the Tithe Barn seats up to 120 guests and evokes the character and atmosphere of a church with its flagstone floor, oak beams and high ceilings. Chiavari chairs are provided and otherwise here is a blank canvas to design your own theme with colours and decorations, flowers, drapes and chair covers. The Barn has a capacity to host civil ceremonies and receptions for 120 guests and up to 180 for the evening party.
Situated within Browsholme Hall, the Regency Drawing Room is an especially romantic space rich with history. Family portraits, a gilded chandelier, marble fireplace and furniture by Gillow of Lancaster create a feeling of bygone times in this historic house. Large windows give a mellow light and during the ceremony, provides uninterrupted views across the gardens and parkland
- Your Evening Reception -
Formalities complete, speeches made, now let the party start! You can now both relax confident that your family, friends and relatives have enjoyed the reception and food at the wedding feast. It is time to let your hair down, enjoy the evening and dance the night away. Tables and chairs are put to one side and the Tithe Barn is transformed for a party with space to dance and coloured LED lighting.
The evening is also when the courtyard truly comes to life. Fire pits, an outside bar, warm lighting and the magic of a wood-fired pizza oven cooking delicious, fresh pizzas before your eyes all providing an element of theatre for your guests.
- Accommodation -
Afterwards, the Mews Cottage is the perfect place for you to escape for your wedding night, offered to you as part of the venue hire. With a private garden, this quirky and romantic cottage is a perfect place to relax.
For summer 2018 up to ten micro lodges, situated in woodland near the Tithe Barn, will be available to reserve before and after the wedding. These purpose built and beautifully furnished lodges each have a double bed, seating area and shower room and are perfect for a few nights’ accommodation.
