Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Every wedding is special at Colshaw Hall. There are some weddings that have had stories behind them that will stay with us forever but we treat every wedding as a unique experience so choosing the best one is simply not possible!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Speak to your venue as soon as you've booked. We know what works at the venue and what doesn't and our in house Finishing Touches and Styling Team will be here to give you full support. Think about what's important to you and let go of the stuff that's not really important. Consider other months aside from summer - a winter or autumnal wedding is equally special and often costs less too.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Flowers were once used dried as confetti from a garden of a family member that couldn't be at the wedding. There wasn't a dry eye in the house!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
There are so many! That's one of the reasons our couples choose us - The Magnolia Garden, The Japanese Garden, Top of the Stairs in the Hall, on the bridge in front of the lake and fountain. We can't choose a favourite!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We've had many - including cyclist Sir Chris Hoy, Mark Cavendish (multiple) winner of Tour de France. Many of the Coronation Street Cast including Cath Tyldesley who tied the knot here, Love Islanders and premier league footballers. We are an exclusive estate and we are able to provide privacy and confidentiality for those that need it.
What’s your favourite canapé?
Risotto Balls or Spring Rolls - every time. Although every canape Barrett's Event Caterers create is very special!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
We get to sample lots of left over wedding cake - this tends to be sampled at the end of a wedding so we will go with that!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Possible our luxurious Makeup Lounge which is a dedicated room for getting ready or The Den where the Groomsmen can play table football, enjoy a beer or kick back and relax before the ceremony. Or the fact you can tie the knot, celebrate, party and stay the night all in one location.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our couples. Their reviews and feedback in phenomenal and we wouldn't be here without them.
