Christmas Weddings

Christmas is such a magical time of year.  The Hall looks absolutely stunning with real Christmas trees adorning the Entrance Hall, Grand Staircase and Stucco Ballroom.  Festive garlands drape the ornate fireplaces and candles glisten,making it  a truly romantic time of year to get married.

Knowsley Hall is a magnificent stately home that dates back to the 14th Century and sits proudly on a 2,500 private estate , which is home to The Earl & Countess of Derby.

From the minute you drive through our imposing gates and along the sweeping tree-lined driveway, you will be truly mesmerised by the sheer size and beauty of the grounds.  Surrounded by manicured gardens and a lake, it is the most idyllic setting for your wedding and will be exclusively yours for the day.

During the summer months enjoy the breathtaking views of the manicured gardens and lake whilst enjoying drinks and canapes on the Terrace overlooking the fountain.

Exchange your vows in the majestic splendour of our Stucco Ballroom that holds up to 132 guests for a ceremony and 200 guests for an evening reception.  Our opulent State Dining Room with an antique gold chandelier, original fireplaces and walls full of family portraits create the most magical of settings.

All our food is prepared by our team of expert chefs and as a seal of quality, The Earl and Countess of Derby personally taste and approve every dish before its inclusion in our menus.

Extend your stay in our 17 bedrooms that have been awarded 5* Gold by Visit Britain.  Each room has been individually designed by The Countess of Derby herself and are immaculately maintained to a high standard by our housekeeping team.

The entire day at Knowsley Hall, for our winter Christmas themed wedding, exceeded our expectations and those of our guests in every way imaginable.  We honestly feel so incredibly lucky to have been married there and make any excuse to return.
