With hundreds of wedding venues to choose from, finding the right venue for you can be a challenging one. Here are some great reasons why I think Astley Bank Hotel is the Hidden Gem of Lancashire! Here are 10 reasons why you should give it a serious consideration.
A Georgian mansion with matured gardens and unspoiled view with the car park discreetly behind the all year round evergreen trees. A charming doorway with pockets of great spots for shots such as the arch, the fountain and the steps with more coming soon in 2020 with the continued investment in the buildings facilities. Less than 5 minutes from the moors for outstanding sunsets too if the weather permits.
2.Everything is at a stone’s throw!
When it comes to weddings, you want to be where the action is. With your probably expensive shoes walking any distance is not on the cards for your shots. The amazing beauty of this venue is that your ceremony room, toilets, outside spaces, rooms, evening space, food is all within a stones throw literally. This means you will not waste any time at all in walking around and be able to make most of your wedding in comfort.
One of the most important factors for photography is lighting for which some of the most premium venues can fail at. With patio style windows at the ceremony room, even in the winter you are blessed with natural light and radiance surrounded by all year round evergreens. Poor lighting can lead to compromised pictures if shot naturally.
This is where this venue really hits the mark with its food being one to remember. Cooked to perfection for mouth-watering results. The proof is in the pudding with some amazing reviews just how great the food is. Even the chocolate side treats with your tea is handmade right here at Astley Bank.
When it comes to hotels, having the security of knowing your children are safe is something people have to consider especially in larger hotels. With a gated entrance, private drive and gardens the enclosed space will give you that confidence. You can book the hotel exclusively out too for that ultimate touch.
There is nothing more frustrating than sharing your wedding with golfers, public and others.
6.Service with a family feel
Time and time again I go to premium venues and they do not invest in their staff in turn giving you a great venue with mediocre service. Alan and Susan really do what they can to ensure the hotel has that personal touch. Much of the staff been here for years for the reason it’s a great place to work in turn making sure your every need of your wedding is served.
7. Off venue parking
With over 100 spaces and away from the venue, you can guarantee you can get some great shots of the venue without it looking like a car park. With disability parking and access to hand there will be no issues in finding a parking space.
8.Space that keeps an atmosphere
With having less rooms and a clever use of space, your wedding will continue to hold a good atmosphere. With larger venues it is easy for guests to go astray into other rooms making a well-attended wedding more vacant. Having an open plan space really allows you to see most of the action getting people involved
9.Location, Location, Location!
With this hotel less than 5 minutes away from a motorway junction and a good flow of traffic, this place is easy to get too with little fuss. The M65 is one of the quietest motorways in the North West.
For the first time too, they are now offering mid week discounts for those who are budget conscious so you can get this venue at a great price!
