Sarah was absolutely phenomenal!
There really aren’t enough words that will do this justice – Sarah was absolutely phenomenal! Always happy to answer any questions, sharing her vast experience with us so we could plan the day effectively and really made it feel like ours was the only wedding we she was planning. Grace, the receptionist, and Dave, our coordinator on the day, were also incredible. The thing we are most thankful for and which was truly valuable is how personal all of the staff made our wedding feel. Given we hadn’t met anyone until the beginning of 2022, you’d think we’d known each other years! They were so invested in giving us a day that was special and we would never forget and they delivered before anything that we thought was possible.

Everyone should get married here!
Not only is the Shireburn Arms a truly beautiful venue in the heart of the Ribble Valley & great value for money but is also the only venue we looked at that made it feel like ours was the only wedding they were hosting all year. From start to finish, the team were kind, friendly and able to offer a wealth of their experience to create the most special day for us. The biggest thing about this venue is how genuinely excited the team were that we were getting married - given we'd only met them 10 months prior to the day, it felt like we'd known them a lifetime. Nothing was too much and we wouldn't have had the most incredible day we did without them!
Response from the venue

A fabulous day we will treasure for our lifetime!!
We had a most wonderful wedding day and we were both, equally, very well looked after each step of the way by the staff at the Shireburn Arms; a very homely and charming country Inn, but it provides and excellent wedding service and has all the small but important and personal touches that one would require to celebrate such a special occasion as a wedding. A big 'Thank you' to you all at the Shireburn Arms for making our day so very special.

Nothing seemed too much trouble
Sarah was amazing right from our first visit all the way through to our wedding day. She really helped to form our perfect day, exactly how we wanted it. Sarah made planning things much easier and more flexible than some of the other venues we had considered. Nothing seemed too much trouble and she was so kind and approachable, so I didn't feel too guilty when I was bugging her with loads of questions and information as we got closer to the wedding. As well as being a brilliant coordinator she was like an extra bridesmaid on the morning, providing reassurance and hugs and helping with dresses. So thank you Sarah, even though you did almost make me cry (happy tears) on more than one occasion!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We had a Harry Potter themed wedding. They picked the venue for the countryside placement but also because the wallpaper in function room spoke to their love of Harry Potter. For the wedding breakfast they kept the theme quite subtle but then were able to go a bit more fun in other areas, we even had a Moaning Myrtle motif down in the toilets!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Budget! Work out how much monthly it will cost and stick to it. Spreadsheets are amazing to keep track of all the ideas you have and bits and bobs from various suppliers you hire.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

I have two because I simply cannot choose. The first is when the table numbers were altered to different events that had happened during their relationship and how far away – in days – they were from the date of the wedding. This was lovely and so unique to them. The second was seeing a bride read vows to the groom's daughter asking her to be her stepdaughter. There was not a dry eye in the building!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Cosy, Personable, Enchanting, Surprising, Flexible

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There’s so many to choose from, in the garden on the balcony, with the gorgeous countryside back drop is always a firm favourite. Or, for an inside shot, by the fire in the cosy pub area is a great place.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have had some sporting stars and local celebrities attend weddings with us. To us though, every couple and guest is a celebrity, on the day!

What’s your favourite canapé?

The apricot and sage sausage roll is a favourite of mine. For our vegetarian and vegan guests the beetroot falafel with, or without, the mint yogurt is amazing!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

I love all of our midnight feasts we have on offer but the cheese board selection is definitely my favourite. If you’re scared you might get nightmares though, the chips and dips is definitely a popular choice.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The breathtaking views across the back of our south facing garden! From the front of the building we look like an everyday little country pub. When your guests travel through the building, into the wedding space at the back, they are hit with the most spectacular views of the Ribble Valley countryside!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Everything! It is a package deal here at the Shireburn. You aren’t just utilising a small function room but rather the entire property. Weddings have access to our function room, our fantastic games room downstairs and the garden area during the day. Guests can then stay over and finish the celebrations with a wonderful country breakfast in our pub area. The staff in all areas work hard to deliver the best service for our couples to have the their day, just as they want it!
