Traditional Wedding at Samlesbury Hall

Emma and Sam. 29th July 2023

by Samlesbury Hall

We are both primary school teachers and met when we worked at the same school. Sam has since moved onto a different school. Sam proposed in July 2021 in our living room. He had planned to do it on a walk, however the weather had other ideas that day and it poured down!


We just loved it as soon as we viewed. I have grown up I'm Preston but it’s actually somewhere that I’ve never been too! We loved the grounds and the atmosphere in the hall. The staff were great and we loved the idea of having our guests stay in the shepherds’ huts. 


Our guests had the tomato and red pepper bruschetta, chicken with dauphinoise potatoes and the sticky toffee pudding. The food was amazing and we had lots of clean plates. We’ve also had many comments since from our guests about how much they enjoyed the food, especially the bruschetta. We also had pizza in the evening which was just the fuel we needed for dancing!  


This is a tough one! One of the highlights was definitely the speeches. It was lovely to laugh, cry and celebrate with our guests. Another fab one was the party at night. The dance floor was never empty thanks to our fantastic band, The Kickstarts, and we even had a conga line going outside onto the courtyard at one point! Our first dance was Maroon 5 - Sunday Morning.


The whole day just ran so smoothly and was everything that we could have hoped for. The Samlesbury Hall team were fabulous throughout the process including emails, meet ups and then leading the day. The room looked stunning too with a gorgeous set up by our florist and the team. We had the most perfect day.
