We had our wedding RECEPTION here. You can't have a wedding CEREMONY here, or at least you couldn't in April 2013 it may have changed, we got married at St Mary and All Saints literally just round the corner. Having visited a number of wedding venues in the area we noticed they all seemed to look the same and offer the same photo opportunities. Many venues appeared to have an attitude they were doing you a real favour in agreeing to host your wedding, despite the fact they weren't shy on prices. This was not the case for Whalley Abbey. The staff were lovely down to earth people and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was beautiful and the service never disappointed. Our photographs amongst the ruins are treasured mementos of the day and the interior again offered stunning images that aren't the standard wedding stuff you see everywhere. The room we stayed in after the reception was romantic and beautifully decorated. The breakfast the following morning was also up to the same high standard as the wedding catering. Not one of the guests had any complaints, they even managed to cater for my 90 year old Auntie which is not a simple task. Finally the price. This venue came at a fraction of the price of others, perhaps other venues put in an extra charge for their surly attitudes. Seriously ignore this venue and miss out, the marketing doesn't do it justice! You have to see it and experience the catering to realise just what a fantastic venue this really is.
