Soughton Hall was built as a Bishop's Palace in 1714 then renovated in the 1800's by Sir Charles Barry, known for his fabulous work on the Houses of Parliament and Highclere Castle known more famously as Downton Abbey.

Our experienced wedding planners will look after you every step of the way. We do advise booking a showround of the hall - the driveway itself will blow you away.

    Fairytale Wedding

    We had attended a wedding at Soughton Hall last summer and when we decided to get married with seven weeks notice we thought it was the perfect location for our wedding on 18th November 2017.
    The hall is a magnificent setting for a wedding with spectacular grounds and a Hall steeped in history and elegance. The pre-event support was excellent and given the very short notice they staff were superb in their planning. Come the weekend Amy, Lauren and all of staff contributed to an occasion that we will never forget.
    The morning started with a bride, six bridesmaids and an entourage of hairdressers and make-up artists all accommodated in a beautiful dressing room. Pampered throughout the morning.
    The ceremony was held in an elegant state room, the post ceremony reception was in the stunning main drawing room and library; and the wedding breakfast and evening function were in the stunning marquee, decked in its finery. Everything that we wanted was delivered in style and with exacting attention to every detail – nothing was too much trouble and they really looked after our every need.
    The food in our bespoke menu was amazing and loved by all the guests, even the exacting dietary requirement of some of our guests were met by the chef and his team.
    The hotel rooms were luxurious, there was an elegant champagne turndown in the bridal suite and the breakfast the next morning was second to none. Everyone stayed at the hall into the Sunday afternoon to experience the hall some more and explore the grounds.
    The guests all said that the service from the staff was exemplary and the hospitality shown to our guests reflected wonderfully on the hotel and on us. We would recommend this wedding venue to everyone.

    Amazing Wedding Day

    Hello Annie,

    Sorry for not getting back in touch earlier we are busy honeymooning in the Lake District.

    Thanks for your kind words. Like you say me and Louise are still on cloud 9, we had an amazing
    day so a massive thanks to you, Daniel and everyone at Soughton hall for helping making it a truly
    special day. Everything was just perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything better,
    So many of our family and friend said have been saying what a fabulous wedding it was.
    Jim is fine as far as we are aware, we know he was kept in hospital for a couple of days.
    Jim's brother in law Mark has asked us to thank you for running him to the hospital,
    he really appreciated it as we all did.

    When we are home from the lakes we will call in to thank you personally for all your efforts.

    Kind Regards

    Gareth and Louise

    Wedding Day 5 star

    Hi Annie,

    Yes thanks, all back to normal now!

    We can honestly say it was fantastic! From planning beforehand and on the day itself. You all ran it so well and smoothly. The venue was perfect, food amazing (everyone raved about the steak pie especially) and the rooms were lovely. All the staff were polite and couldn't have helped more. All in all, we loved it. Can't thank you enough Annie for all your hard work, patience and attention to detail.

    Thank you again and to all the staff who made it such a fun weekend for us all.

    Jen, Matt and family xx

    Fantastic Day had by all

    Lovely staff, beautiful surroundings & a really fantastic wedding. But then I would say that, it was my wedding!! The bad point I recall is asking for a bottle of Champagne and being told they did not stock bottles- BUT IT IS MY WEDDING DAY!!

    Beatiful grounds and well maintained statley home.

    Soughton Hall is set in breath taking grounds, and the hall itself is to a very high standard. However there was a lack of atmosphere due to guests being spread over too many rooms and the bar was expensive!! If you dream of a Pride and Prejudice wedding then this is the venue to book however this comes with a large price ticket which I do not feel it is worth.

    Pleasently surprised

    I attended a friends wedding here in July of 2001 and was really surprised at how nice the place and particularly the staff were. I'd always imagined the staff to be a bit 'stuffy' but they were quite the opposite and in fact were very down to earth and friendly. Unfortunately we are marrying in the USA because my wife to be is American but if we weren't I would jump at the chance to marry here.
