We are so so happy we picked this venue
We had our wedding at the Shireburn Arms in March this year and it was such an incredible day and we are so so happy we picked this venue. A huge shout out to Sarah who was absolutely amazing and put me at ease on the run up to the day. Sarah responded so quickly to all of my queries and went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect on the day. The staff on the day were also amazing, no one was left without a drink during the wedding breakfast and everyone has commented on how great the service and the food was!! Thank you so much for hosting our special day and for making it perfect. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a down to earth, country venue at great value, with amazing food, views and staff.

A credit to the hospitality industry
We attended a wedding event on the 16th of June and from when we arrived till when we left the atmosphere was calm laid back but the service was slick and nothing seemed to much trouble! Dave one of the bar staff was particularly outstanding not just doing his job well but making us feel like we weren’t just another couple attending just another wedding. This place and the staff are a credit to the hospitality industry! Thank you!!

We loved every minute of our day!
The whole team at the Shireburn were amazing, they couldn’t have done anymore to make our day so perfect. Sarah was such a comfort to have around before the ceremony and the little things, like being told we could sneak into the wedding breakfast before everyone else to see the room and being given 10 minutes straight after the ceremony in our own room with a glass of fizz to have a moment to realise we’d just got married! We loved every minute of our day and wouldn’t have wanted to have it anywhere else.

It was the best day of our lives!
I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you so much for everything leading up to and on Saturday. It was the best day of our lives and well worth the wait! Firstly, the staff were incredible. Everyone was so friendly and just couldn’t do enough for us, bending over backwards to help. Nico in particular was an absolute legend and we all loved him. There was a man with a big beard too who was also amazing! The room decor setup throughout the day was just perfect. It looked better than I could have ever dreamed of! The food was also brilliant and everyone said so. The morning after, we came down ready to clear everything up only to find it had all been done and all we had to do was pack up the car. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Even hiccups like the music not starting and the power cutting out in our first dance are now some of my favourite memories because it was just so funny! And last but not least, you! Thank you for everything. You made me feel so at ease with all the planning and have made everything so smooth and enjoyable. Having you right behind me before I walked down the aisle was everything I needed and I hope you know how important a role you play in a brides day. I can’t thank you enough. Overall, everyone had the best day and so many people commented on what a perfect venue it was. And they were right! We made the best decision getting married at The Shireburn Arms. Thank you again, and we’ll be back to visit!

The most dreamy, calm and love filled day!
I really hope this finds you all in the midst of a busy week - the incredible team that you are! Sarah, Megan, Grace and EVERYONE else at The Shireburn, Michael, my family and I would like to extend our biggest heartfelt thank you to you all. Yesterday was just the most dreamy, calm and love filled day and you all played such a huge part in making it feel that way. Your attentiveness and consideration was second to none and all family and guests noticed and commented. Megan, Sarah…thank you! You’ve been absolute hero’s throughout our wedding journey. The venue and food were perfect for our intimate family wedding and as a result, two of our friends that attending decided that they also want to get married there! I’ve attached a few photos that we’ve had through from Mark, our photographer. I’m sure you’ll agree that the venue looks so beautiful! Thank you all again. We can’t wait to come back to food and country walks to keep such wonderful memories alive.

Great Northern Wedding Awards 2019 - Best Wedding Venue – Boutique / Intimate

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!
