A Country House Wedding Venue That’s Exclusively Yours

Weddings at Knowsley Hall

A Magnificent Wedding Venue

Knowsley Hall is a grand stately home which is home to The Earl & Countess of Derby.  From the minute you drive through the huge iron gates into the private walled estate and along the long driveway, you will be completely captivated by the sheer size and beauty of the Knowsley Estate. The private home for weddings, with its 17 beautiful bedrooms and breath-taking gardens, will be exclusively yours on your wedding day. Totally private, it’s like entering a whole other world.

Set in over 2,500 acres of historic parkland, Knowsley Hall is the most luxurious country wedding venue in the North West with its close proximity to motorway links makes it easily accessible with Liverpool and Manchester Airports close by.

The benefits of a luxury stately home wedding venue

Whether you are looking for an intimate wedding for 60 guests or a larger celebration of up to 132 guests, our dedicated Event Managers will help you plan your perfect day. It is the perfect exclusive wedding venue in Merseyside you have been dreaming about for your big day!  You can celebrate your wedding ceremony in our romantic Stucco Ballroom with its beautiful gold-encrusted details and we also have a separate room to hold your wedding breakfast. As you enter the magnificent State Dining Room as the newlyweds, to feast on a delicious menu prepared by our team of expert chefs, you will feel like royalty.  There are 17 luxury bedrooms in the Hall, all reserved just for you and your guests and you can enjoy waking up to a cooked breakfast and reminiscing about your magical wedding day!

All Inclusive Weddings

To help you plan your perfect wedding day, we have created three seasonal all-inclusive wedding packages for you to choose from depending on whether you would prefer a Summer, Winter or Christmas stately home wedding.

As we like to keep our calendar varied, we limit the number of weddings we hold at the Hall each year. So you can rest assured that your wedding day will be truly unique and memorable.

We expected a high standard of service, but to be treated like we were really took it to another level.  The precise and close eye kept on staff during the wedding breakfast and marking off what has been given truly shows the attention to detail and level of service not short of royalty.
