We started off as a neglected farm and like Cinderella, we transformed into something magical. We've been on such a journey and then we found weddings.... We’ve even won ‘Lancashire Wedding Venue of the Year’ and 'North West Wedding Venue Of The Year 2018'!
If you are looking for a gay friendly wedding venue which provides a unique wedding experience guaranteed to impress your friends and family, why not check out our Fun, Quirky and Magical Barn wedding venue which is open until 1am for alcohol and dancing!
Do you want a wedding with the WOW Factor’? When you open our Barn doors, ‘WOW’ will be the first word to come out of your mouth.
You have exclusive hire of the farm for your wedding and potentially the use of four areas of our farm:
1. Our gorgeous Wedding Barn which is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and can hold up to 250 guests standing or 170 guests seated;
2. Our Wheatsheaf Barn which is great for welcome drinks and informal receptions and a great weatherproof solution;
3. The licensed Wedding Pavillion for that perfect outside same-sex wedding which can also double up as a chill out zone with amazing views;
4. An original Indian tipi with a fire bowl for your fun-loving guests to catch up in and get cosy around the fire.
You can choose the food you love to eat and it will be all homemade by us. We offer a ‘Cake Cart’ as a wedding cake alternative and Cheese Wedding Cakes decorated with our home grown edible flowers! How about using our Lancashire Brew Station - throughout the day, your guests can help themselves to a mug of tea or coffee at no extra charge.
We have our own award-winning family butchers and Cookery School and even rear our own sheep. In development is an onsite micro-brewery, so you can brew your own beer for your wedding. Perfect for your partner!
How many venues do you know that offer locally sourced beers, animal themed wine, a Gin Bar, Pimp Your Prosecco, a Rum House and a Llama Boudoir - we are the ultimate gay-friendly wedding venue!
Our venue is eco-friendly having achieved the Gold Award for green business, the venue is powered by a wind turbine!
We offer accessories such as beautiful rustic trestle tables, fairy lights, sweet cart, PA system, rickshaw, handmade bunting, floral archway… the list goes on! You get full access to our ‘Prop Store’ (aka Aladdin’s Cave) to personalise your wedding, saving you time, hassle and money.
Our Llamas and Alpacas wear bowties and mingle with your wedding guests and our donkeys will pose while you sit on the vintage blue tractor. We provide a variety of complimentary outdoor games and we have go-carts and ride-on’s for the kids (or even adults)! We even have a 9-Hole Crazy Golf Course!
You will have three planning meetings and access to a secret website for your wedding planning… sssh! Your Wedding Coordinator will be there on your wedding day providing 100% support which means you don’t have to worry and you can just focus on having the best day of your life.
