Wyresdale Weddings is a charming countryside, barn & manor house wedding venue located in the Forest of Bowland. The venue's heritage barns have been lovingly restored to create a stunning, spacious venue where you can exchange your vows, enjoy your wedding breakfast and party the night away. Estate cottages and old coach houses provide the accommodation on the night of your wedding, with accommodation for forty two guests. The Manor House and lodge are for your stay the night before, sleeping 12 guests in beautiful surroundings. Lawns, lakes and woodlands are all on hand for timeless photos, providing picture perfect backdrops for your drinks reception.

Although this romantic gem is adored for its tranquil atmosphere and scenic beauty, it is well-connected to major cities thanks to its proximity to the M6.

Receptions can be held in the vibrant Party Barn, a creative space for your drinks reception and late-night dancing. For an outdoor alternative, the South Lawn is a wonderful option. Hidden away behind the café gardens, this open-air setting can be used for lawn games and welcome drinks.

Gorgeous venue and the most down-to-earth, helpful team to help organise your wedding

Amazing rustic, laid-back venue but with plenty of 'wow' factor. The incredible team were so helpful from the very beginning they were all lovely people who went the extra mile e.g. helping to release our dog down the aisle as the ring bearer! The suppliers on site and those recommended were all fantastic as well and everything felt very 'under control' on the day allowing us the chance to just relax and enjoy!

A Perfect Day

Wyresdale was the most beautiful venue for our wedding day. We couldn't be happier with how the day went, all the co-ordinators made sure everything ran like clockwork, and we felt so well looked after. We genuinely didn't have to worry about a single thing on the day as everything was so well organised by the team. The Wyresdale team were always on hand to answer any of our questions in the run up to the day too, and I always found them very responsive on email. I would highly recommend Wyresdale, it's a stunning countryside venue, with amazing grounds to wander through for photos.

The accommodation for both the night before and the night of the wedding is absolutely stunning. Everything is done to such a high standard, and the décor is beautiful - it feels like such luxury, without being at all pretentious.

We used the suppliers recommended or based at the venue for our hair & make-up, flowers and catering and it made everything so much easier having everyone in one place. Them all knowing the venue so well meant we didn't have to worry about anything!

Both ourselves and our guests absolutely loved the day, and we all left feeling very happy! I cannot fault a thing, thank you Wyresdale!

Thinking about booking your wedding at Wyresdale? BOOK IT NOW! We promise you won’t regret it.

After almost 10 years together. we got married at Wyresdale in September 2023, and had the most perfect days of our lives.

We actually didn’t look around anywhere else, as we fell in love with your venue straight alway. And we have had no regrets since. From the very start of booking our venue (shown around by the lovely Sarah) , to the communication running up to the day, to the advise and hints and tips. Everything was perfection.

Then the actual day - where do we even begin to explain the wonderful day? Your team are incredibly talented. The whole day ran sooo smoothly , no stress, everything was was like a fairytale.

You looked after us and our guests so well. The venue is stunning! The whole grounds were just the most beautiful place we had ever seen. Our guests keep going on and on and on about it.

We can't thank you all enough. Special thank you to Heather who made the day just run from start to the end. You were amazing calm, even when starting the ceremony 30mins late and then my dads speech lasting 30minutes!

The accommodation on site was a huge bonus for us, being able to stay with all our loved ones the night before and then having over 40guests on the wedding night. Everyone loved their glamping tents and the posh new coach house. The honeymoon suite is very special and the perfect end to the perfect day.

Then the next morning everything being in the Shippon ready for us - not a single thing missing! With a yummy breakfast whilst discussing the day before!

The suppliers that came within the package - stunning flowers from Bluebells & daises, delicious food from the striped kitchen, incredible photos from Claire Basiuk and my beautiful hair and make up done by The Loft. It took the stress out of everything. You are one lovely family, and we felt like a part of it whilst we were there.

We will be coming back to Wyresdale for the rest of our lives, and will recommend to anyone wanting a perfect wedding.

A dream venue!

Wyresdale Park was the most magical venue for our May wedding. From start to finish, the team of coordinators were always on hand to answer any questions, and support us throughout the planning process. We loved our wedding day, and so many of our guests commented on how amazing the venue really is. From the boating lake, to the barns, to the yurts, every part of this venue really gives you individuality and space to enjoy your day with your guests. The whole team were amazing on the day, and we were never rushed around or felt restricted in any way, they supported us to make our wedding our dream. There is plenty of accommodation options too, which really makes it feel like you are in your own paradise with your guests and it's lovely all having breakfast together the next day. We also used some of their recommended suppliers, like The Striped Kitchen and Bluebells and Daisies who we can't recommend enough! Overall, there really was nothing we could have changed from our day, and highly recommend this amazing venue to all.

An insider view from a wedding photographer

As a Lancashire based wedding photographer I obviously work at a lot of venues and see the BTS of a wedding day.

Wyresdale is one of my favourite venues. Not only does it offer something quite different from any venues locally in terms of aesthetic but the staff at the venue are great. Ensuring the day runs to plan and their couples and guests have a smooth and enjoyable experience on the day. Obviously makes my job a lot easier too!
Absolutely lovely venue and can’t wait to get back and shoot there again in the future.

The venue speaks volumes for itself. Totally and utterly STUNNING!! I fell in love with wyresdale before I had even step foot on the property it’s quirky and rustic beauty had my heart the moment I laid eyes on their social media platforms. Our wedding day ran so smoothly with the wyresdale team and as a bride this is all you wish for. Great team of people and nothing was too much hassle. Even down to a member of the team sitting with my 2 year old toddler whilst he was sleeping so we could dance the night away.

Our co-ordinator for the day was an Angel.

We also used striped kitchen who was amazing (recommended food supplier) 💖.

The only thing I would say is that the honeymoon nook was slightly cold on a November evening. However I didn’t know where the heating was to turn it up. Our guests yurts was so warm with heated blankets and heaters which I was over the moon with.

All in all it was a truly magical day and I wish we got to do it all over again.

Thank you team wyresdale ✨ xxx

Our perfect autumn barn wedding

Our autumn wedding at Wyresdale Park was an absolute dream come true! We couldn't have asked for a more stunning and unique venue to celebrate our special day.

From the moment we arrived at the picturesque location, we knew we had made the right choice. The changing colors of the leaves provided a breathtaking backdrop that left us and our guests in awe. We were blown away by the beauty of the barn - the exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and warm lighting made it the perfect setting for our reception.

But what really made our day truly unforgettable was the exceptional service provided by the staff at Wyresdale Park. They went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of and that we had the wedding of our dreams. Their attention to detail and dedication to making everything perfect for us was outstanding and made us feel like royalty.

One of the many things that made our autumn wedding at Wyresdale Park so special was the incredible accommodation. The bridal suite was absolutely perfect, providing a luxurious and comfortable space for us to get ready for our big day. It was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to feel pampered and relaxed.

But it wasn't just the bridal suite that impressed us - the yurts for our guests were also amazing! They provided a really fun and unique experience for our guests, who loved the chance to stay in such a beautiful setting. The yurts themselves were spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed, with everything our guests needed to enjoy their stay. The common area was especially great, as it allowed everyone to gather and make new friends, creating a real sense of community and togetherness.

We can't recommend Wyresdale Park enough as a wedding venue. It's the perfect choice for couples who want a unique and memorable experience that they and their guests will never forget. We're so grateful that we chose this amazing barn for our special day, and we're sure that other couples will feel the same way too. If you're looking for a wedding venue that truly stands out, look no further than Wyresdale Park - you won't be disappointed!

An Amazing Wedding Venue!

We booked Wyresdale Park for our wedding reception venue in June 2021, ahead of our wedding in September 2022. Wyresdale have been fantastic from the beginning, always willing to answer any questions via email or the phone (we had a lot!). We used their package deal which combined a photographer, florist, bridal hair and beauty and catering, and it was one of the best decisions we made. The venue is absolutely stunning, set on the edge of the Forest of Bowland - our guests loved it! A massive shout out to Claire for answering loads of our questions, to James for being an incredible owner and always saying hello to us when we were at an open day or just up having a coffee at the Applestore Cafe, and to Sally for handling all of our invoices and payments.

You can tell the team at Wyresdale is a family, and we certainly have a very special connection with Wyresdale ourselves now as well. We love to come back for the shops and the Christmas markets, and we also made our wedding bands at Rachel Elizabeth Wood's Jewelry shop, which is on the site. The one bit of feedback we have is that staggering the welcome drinks at the drinks reception would be good as some of our guests didn't get a drink due to traffic on the A6 (we got married in Preston, and drove to Wyresdale afterwards).

Overall we would highly recommend Wyresdale to anyone looking for a wedding venue - the location is beautiful yet easy to access, the staff are lovely, and you get so much for the hire price (white barn, disco barn, ground access, yurts, etc). Thank you Wyresdale for helping us have such a special wedding day!

⭐︯ incredible! ⭐︯

We had our wedding at Wyresdale back in August 2022. Everybody says it will be the best day of your life, it really was. That was all thanks to the most incredible venue, suppliers and staff. From start to finish everything was ran like a well oiled machine. Nothing was too much trouble and somebody was always on hand to help. Jaydi managed to find me extra items for the wedding decor at last minute without me even asking. Could not recommend more and so wish we could do it all over again 😞

Amazing venue and staff!

We had our wedding at Wyresdale Park in July and couldn't recommend the venue and staff enough! The co-ordinators were so lovely and helpful in the run up to our big day, and Claire & Jaydi went above and beyond on our wedding day to make it so special. The venue is so gorgeous too, from the ceremony barn to the south lawn - there is a space for everything and potential to make it so personal to you. We loved every minute!

The exact barn wedding venue I was looking for

I've just got my wedding photos back and I've relived how amazing the day was once more. This venue really is special and it's been designed so thoughtfully to feel rustic and beautiful but also super practical and equipped to have the most stress free wedding day. I love the three different rooms (ceremony/dining/dancing) and bar which make it super easy to transition between different parts of the day. They've thought of everything to make your day easier and are also really flexible and not pushy in terms of doing things your own way or bringing in your own suppliers. I could go on and on but if you are looking for a relaxed, beautiful and memorable wedding day - book a viewing and you'll see what I mean :)

Couldn't have picked a better venue!!

Wyresdale Park is just amazing!! From the moment we booked with them we knew we were in good hands. The grounds are stunning and there's so many places for beautiful photographs. The barns, the North Wing and the glamping pods just surpassed all our expectations.
The day itself was amazing, every little detail had been thought about by our wonderful wedding coordinator (Tamsin) we really couldn't have done it without her. I genuinely couldn't fault a thing with Wyresdale, I wish we could do it all again! Best wedding venue we could ever have asked for!

Better than we could have imagined!!

I’d always wanted a venue that could sleep my nearest and dearest for a couple of nights, to make a lovely short holiday for everyone! Im so glad I came across Wyresdale!
The freedom they gave us to organise our day as we wanted was great, no confinements!
Responsive in answering questions and our wedding coordinator was lovely!
We want to go back and do it all again!!!!
