Eaves Hall

Welcome to Eaves Hall, without a doubt one of the finest exclusive use wedding venues in the North West. A glorious building surrounded by beautiful gardens set amidst the simply stunning countryside of the Ribble Valley.

From the moment you pass through its wrought iron gates and sweep up the tree lined driveway, Eaves Hall will instantly have you in its thrall.

From the grand staircase to the ornate fireplaces, the stunning interior design complements the splendour of the original features with an air of contemporary country house luxury and has brought this magnificent building back to life with a bang.

But Dream Weddings aren't just made of a big and beautiful building, they are also made of fabulous food and wine from our chefs and cellars, a superb service from happy and helpful staff and an all-encompassing attention to detail.

Holmes Mill

A stone's throw from the historic Clitheroe Castle, Holmes Mill is a magical wedding venue in the heart of Ribble Valley that, by staying true to its industrial roots, has become a space bursting with character and the perfect setting for anyone looking for a wedding venue that's chic, contemporary and a little bit different.

Holmes Mill started life in 1823 as a textile mill. As part of the extensive and thoughtful restoration of the building we've kept many of the original features in place to create a beautiful, industrial space that's proud to show off its heritage.

We only ever host one wedding on the site at any one time but we are delighted to be able to offer two quite different settings for your wedding breakfast & evening reception.

We believe that your special day deserves a special setting, and at Holmes Mill we can offer just that.

Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa is a world class resort with one of the most enviable lake-shore settings for a wedding celebration in the Lake District. What better backdrop to create beautiful wedding photographs and memories that will last forever?

Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa is perfectly placed to make the most of those views. Take a stroll down to the lake for pictures on the private jetty, or charter a private lake cruise with family and friends. The hotel lawn is ideal for celebratory drinks with the whole wedding party and the lakeshore perfect for your first quiet romantic moment as a married couple.

Every couple who chooses Low Wood Bay is assigned a dedicated wedding coordinator. They will use their expertise from beginning to end, from helping you to decide on a top table floral arrangement to organising menus, flowers, entertainment and much more.

The hotel itself is looking pretty special too. A multi-million-pound expansion at the resort has created fantastic new facilities including a new dining experience, Blue Smoke on the Bay and The Spa, the newest Lake District Spa with luxury treatments and breath-taking views over Lake Windermere.
