Ashfield House Wedding Venue
I am so glad that winter weddings are starting to become more popular.
There’s something magical about a winter wedding. I don’t know if it’s the festive cheer that’s in the air or the roaring log fires and Christmas trees but a winter is definitely my favourite season for weddings.
There are a lot of advantages to getting married in winter, you don’t have to worry about the weather, venues are often cheaper, you don’t need as many decorations as the venues are usually dressed for Christmas, you have more chance of getting the suppliers that you want and more people are usually able to attend as most people tend to take holidays in the summer months.
I was a winter bride myself and if I was going to do it all over again I would choose December to get married every time.
Ashfield House is without a doubt one of the most romantic wedding venues in Lancashire.
Ashfield house was built in 1745 and has so many beautiful features, it’s grand but homely.
Last year was my first time to work at Ashfield House when I was booked to do Sophie’s bridal makeup.
I turned up at the crack of dawn on a dark cold winter morning and what a lovely surprise when I got inside to see the brides getting ready room.
I think all wedding venues should provide a space like this for their brides, it adds a bit of luxury to the day.
The brides getting ready room at Ashfield House is flooded with natural light, makeup stations, more plugs than you can shake a straightener at, comfy sofas, dress hooks, Bluetooth speaker and air-conditioning.
Having a separate space to get ready means that your bridal suite doesn’t get trashed and you have a lovely comfy room to go back to after the celebrations have ended.
It was a lovely relaxed wedding morning getting Sophie and her 4 bridesmaids ready.
Sophie opted for the airbrush makeup, she wanted a natural look with a bit more emphasis on the eyes.
I created a subtle smokey eye using dark drowns and we used black eyeliner on the top and bottom lids with medium length lashes to achieve her desired look, we finished the look off with a nude lip.
Sophie booked Andy Griffiths Photography to capture her special day.
I have worked with Andy on a number of occasions and his photos are always stunning.
There are some stunning photo opportunities at Ashfield House from the Grand Hallway to the beautiful gardens. They always seem to have candles, fresh flowers and lanterns dotted around the place. It’s the little details that make this place so special.

This will hopefully give you a little glimpse into all of the stunning wedding venues we have in the North West.
I hope it helps when you are searching for your fairytale wedding venue.
