Venue Focus: Gisburne Park
Today we feature a new and exclusive wedding venue, Gisburne Park. Nestled in the picturesque landscape of Ribble Valley, Gisburne Park offers a blank canvas venue for couples and exclusive accomodation, perfect for all wedding prepatrations. We love a blank canvas venue, it means no wedding will be the same and couples can truly make their wedding their own.
We wanted to know more about this enchanting place so we caught up with Guy and Sarah to tell us more...
Tell us about you and Gisburne Park and how it became a wedding venue?
Launching in late 2017, Gisburne Park Estate is a brand-new wedding venue in the Ribble Valley. Set within 1,000-acres of historic countryside, with views over the Yorkshire Dales, it is one of Lancashire’s finest private estates.
Exclusively yours, guests can enjoy complete seclusion in 10-acres of historic and enchanting estate grounds, which provide spectacular backdrops for photographs. While a tree-lined driveway through impressive Gatehouses, a river, cliffs, countless bridges and uninterrupted views as far as the eye can see, will be sure to provide the wow factor.
What makes Gisburne Park a unique wedding venue?
Gisburne Park Estate is yours for a whole week, so whether it’s a pre-wedding dinner, a day-after brunch or simply for stress-free set up, its yours to use however you wish.
Riverside House is conveniently located close to our marquee site and is home to the impressive Bridal Suite, with breath-taking views of rolling countryside.
Riverside House is yours for seven nights and has a large dressing room for Bridal Party preparations, two further bedrooms which are accessed by a separate staircase, two bathrooms, large kitchen, dining room and two lounge areas.
Working with our carefully selected partners, there will only be a limited number of weddings taking place in this exclusive setting, which enables a bespoke wedding experience which meets your exact requirements. The intention is to create a wedding experience that is unrivalled in the Ribble Valley.
How can couples make their wedding unique at Gisburne Park?
With plenty of space, as far as the eye can see, this blank canvas is naturally beautiful with lots of greenery, thousand-year-old cliffs and even the tributary where Stock Beck meets the River Ribble. Perfect to personalize, just how you wish.
With your choice of structure, clear-span or traditional marquees, and even a tipi or stretch tent, you can choose whichever suits your plans best.
Can you give us the low down on the details… license, capacity, prices, availability
Couples can get married in the ancient and historic St Mary’s Church in Gisburn, on the edge of the Estate. After the service, you can take a short 5-minute drive back to your reception venue. For couples wishing to marry at the Estate, we can offer celebrant led blessings, allowing you to hold your ceremony within our beautiful setting.
We have a capacity for 300 guests.
Venue hire prices start from £7,500 plus VAT.
Dates are available for 2019, please contact the office directly to check availability of certain dates.
Is there accommodation at the venue for the wedding party and guests?
Accommodation can be arranged in luxury lodges and historic cottages at Ribblesdale Park, which is conveniently located on the Estate. There are over 50 lodges and several cottages and houses which all have private hot tubs. A heated outdoor swimming pool hidden within the walled gardens and a gourmet café are also available. Wedding guests are provided with special rates for accommodation.
What catering is available at the venue?
Catering is provided by outside caterers. We work closely with the local, award-winning With A Twist, who’s ethos is simple, they use fabulous, vibrant produce, utilize the most up to date cooking techniques and deliver their food presentation with the wow factor.
You are not limited to only using these though, as we understand catering is a huge part of your special day and you are more than welcome to source your own caterers if you would prefer.
