Weddings Near Greater Manchester

Morleys Hall is something of a hidden gem among North West wedding venues. The recently converted building looks absolutely stunning, inside and out, providing ample opportunities for solo or group photos on the big day and throughout the reception. Built across multiple levels, there is room enough for 200 guests, with plenty of space to get involved with the celebrations or take a break.

A Beautiful Setting

Morleys Hall is a rustic, converted barn just off the East Lancs Road, set against a stunning backdrop of Lancashire countryside. Well-lit and heated, with high, soaring ceilings, it’s a beautiful building in which to hold your special day. There is plenty of room for you and your guests to enjoy yourselves, with multiple bars, space for dining and dancing, a stage for your wedding entertainment, gorgeous grounds, and an outdoor courtyard, all of which are available for your use throughout the day.

An Affordable Wedding Venue

We charge a single flat rate to hire our venue for your wedding—none of this charging per person. That fee covers the whole building, including the main hall, both bars, the outside courtyard, balconies, grounds, and more. You can configure the hall any way you please, whether you’re using the venue for the ceremony, the reception, or both. There’s room to have your wedding ceremony on our upstairs balcony, or you can hold it down in the main hall if you prefer.

Bars and Spaces

We have two indoor bars, both of which will be fully staffed throughout the day and night and stocked with whatever drinks you have requested for the wedding. There is the main bar, situated just off the main hall for easy access by your guests, and a smaller, quieter snug bar upstairs in case anybody needs to unwind a little from the event. During the warmer nights, we have an outdoor courtyard festooned with atmospheric lighting, as well as an outdoor gin bar for al fresco refreshment.

Catering

We can recommend all kinds of local caterers for you, having worked with dozens of them for other wedding receptions and events, but you don’t need to rely on us. If you already have a caterer picked out, that’s fine by us. We have space in the back for laying out a hot or cold buffet and room outside for a BBQ or for external caterers to set up their van or gazebo out of sight of the main party. Whatever your preferred catering arrangements, we can tailor your wedding day accordingly.

Entertainment

Our main hall includes everything you need to get your wedding reception swinging, including a decent-sized stage for live acts and entertainment, as well as a starlit dance floor and plenty of additional space to dance the night away. It’s perfect whether you’re hiring a wedding band, a DJ, a singer, or any other kind of entertainment for your big day. High ceilings and warm acoustics make our hall a wonderful space to fill with fun, music, and laughter.

Get Married Here

While many of our guests use Morleys Hall as a reception venue, we are licensed for weddings by Wigan Council, so you can conduct the wedding ceremony itself on-site. Whether you want to spend the whole day here or use it as a place to gather after a service elsewhere is entirely up to you.

Bridal Room

This is a small room away from the celebrations, where you can prepare for the ceremony, take a break if it all starts getting a bit too much, or store your gifts safely to one side. It’s situated right next to the upstairs balcony in our snug bar and is the ideal private space for you to take a well-deserved breather.

Our Wedding Network

We have hosted many weddings at Morleys Hall, so it stands to reason that we have our own network of service providers who can assist you with your own nuptials. Whether you need someone to help with catering, entertainment, dressing the venue, providing flowers, capturing the big day on camera or video, or anything else, let us know. All our providers are local specialists that we have worked with many times before and who we know can be trusted to make your day a special one.
