Kilhey Court – the Gift that Keeps Giving
Set in 10 acres of beautifully tended gardens, the MacDonald Kilhey Court hotel is a gorgeous wedding venue. This spacious Victorian house was originally a gift from a husband to his bride, which makes it perfectly apt as a contemporary setting in which to enjoy your wedding day.
A Great Location
Located in Standish, near to Wigan, Kilhey Court was, in a way, itself the ultimate wedding present, built by local brewer Thomas Fairhurst as a gift to his wife.
Now with its lakeside views and landscaped gardens it provides a wonderful setting for a wedding. The large, redbrick house has been fully refurbished, providing top-notch accommodation and facilities. These include a spa and fitness centre, and the very finest cuisine served in an immaculate restaurant setting.
The hotel’s dedicated wedding suites are great for more intimate gatherings, but if your instinct is to go large, then the hotel can take up to 350 wedding guests, making it ideal for that big occasion.
The hotel has large, sweeping gardens, flowing down from the main building and the conservatory, giving it a real sense of drama – ideal for photographs, and as an ideal location for filming your wedding.
Beyond the trees bordering the garden is the lake, again an ideal spot to capture the beauty and magic of the occasion.
The Right Arrangements
Kilhey Court is ideal as a self-contained, self-sufficient wedding venue. It’s licenced for civil ceremonies and you can, should you wish, take over the entire hotel for your own use for your wedding.
Even if you take the option of having something on a more modest scale, the hotel specialises in these arrangements too.
There is a range of deals to choose from, including summer- and winter-themed arrangements, and a full luxury, all-inclusive package that also offers special accommodation rates – the hotel provides a complimentary bridal suite, and for the luxury package, it even throws in a free meal on your first wedding anniversary.
