Facilities and Capacity
Originally built as a Bishop's Palace in 1714, Soughton Hall was renovated to an impressive degree in the 1800s by Sir Charles Barry. Under the famed British architect's guidance, the property received a facelift on par with his other great works—most notably the Houses of Parliament and Downton Abbey's Highclere Castle. Today, you can relish the luxury of hiring this cherished property on an exclusive-use basis, allowing your guests the freedom of savouring the hotel and gardens in their entirety. The venue can cater for weddings between 20 and 300 guests in its various event spaces, including the stunning gardens and permanent marquee space. Licensed for civil ceremonies, the property offers outdoor and indoor ceremony options or a selection of lovely local churches if you desire a more traditional wedding.
Weddings at Soughton hall are considered a very special occasion, one the event planning team endeavours to style in accordance with your vision. They have a strict policy of only hosting one wedding at a time, allowing you to receive their undivided attention every step of the way. There are no rules, set numbers or required packages at this family-owned property, just a team of wedding coordinators eager to help you design the day of your dreams, from red carpet arrival to Champagne turndown. The team highly advise booking a viewing of the hall, where they are confident the driveway alone will blow you away.

Incredible venue and amazing people
On the day itself, our team (Stephen, Naomi, Cheryl and Lily) were there for us every step of the way. I was concerned about timings, plans etc, and they made it so that I didn't even have to think, just enjoy my wedding day. The whole team at Soughton felt like additional guests, and made the day for both of us. I'm so happy we decided on Soughton, and have also recommended to engaged friends. The service, the food, the gorgeous venue - absolutely perfect in every way (and at a very reasonable price).
We would not hesitate to recommend the venue. Small details were taken care of and every request was taken care of.
Soughton Hall - an idyllic venue to marry in
Perfect wedding venue!
Excellent, would recommend to anyone
It was just amazing .Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent staff they were very attentive to detail .
All our guests have commented on how special this venue and staff were.They worked very hard to make our day wonderful.
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.

We can honestly say it was fantastic! From planning beforehand and on the day itself. You all ran it so well and smoothly.
