Steeped in history, Walton Hall is the former home of Lord and Lady Daresbury, boasting antique furniture, an oak-panelled entrance, grand staircase and high gilded ceilings. There are a range of rooms and options available to you for your ceremony and reception, with all indoor spaces featuring beautiful views across the gardens. Best of all, the Hall is exclusively yours for your special day including The Lady Daresbury Room for your morning preparations.
A SCENIC SETTING
Set in acres of idyllic parkland, the gardens are stunning whatever the time of year. Rhododendrons, azaleas and wildflowers provide a blaze of colour during spring and summer, after which the trees take on autumn hues of red, orange and gold, while winter sees the return of a frosted wonderland. There are a wide variety of trees, plants and wildlife throughout, creating a beautiful backdrop for the photos you’ll treasure forever.
WHERE TO WED
You’re spoilt for choice with six wedding locations inside and out. The Concert Room can host 100 loved ones. On the ground floor of the historical Hall, it features large windows that look out across the gardens and bandstand. It can be arranged in your chosen style to include an area for a DJ or band and dancefloor allowing you and your guests to party the night away. The Ruby Room too can accommodate 100 and is located on the first floor boasting exquisite views of the formal gardens. The Glasshouses were lovingly restored a couple of years ago and offer panoramic views of the estate from their beautiful sunny location. They can play host to 60 of your nearest and dearest.
For al fresco big days, you can say “I do” on The Bandstand. Traditional in style, it’s located next to the Hall with plenty of space on the grass for guests to sit in rows, as well as standing room for larger groups. The Pergola is a more intimate spot set in the formal gardens offering a peaceful setting for your vows just a short walk from the Hall. Finally, the Woodland Hideaway is new for spring 2022. This secluded setting is nestled deep in the gardens providing a private ceremony spot. Again, only a hop, skip and a jump from the Hall, it sits amongst towering trees and boasts rustic charm. The gardens offer a myriad of options for hosting your reception and the venue is open to any ideas you may have. From festival-style teepees to braving the British weather with an open-air party the choice is yours. All outdoor locations have a capacity of 100 based on a wet-weather plan involving moving to into the Hall.
