On Thursday 31st July we had our Abbey House Wedding Open Evening. This gave Brides and Grooms the chance to wander around our beautiful Cumbria wedding venue, having a look at what it looks like when it is all delicately decorated for someone’s special day.

POSH flowers spent hours preparing both the Great Hall and the Cavendish Suite with gorgeous centrepieces, bright, fresh flowers and all the tiny little details that really make it all come together. It looked incredible! With that we owe a special thanks to Alyson for the time and effort she put into it – everyone was well and truly impressed! Also thanks to AnnaKate for playing the harp so beautifully, creating such a lovely, romantic atmosphere in the Great Hall.

We had plenty of Brides and Grooms through the doors to come and check out their potential venue. Some who had already booked and wanted some inspiration and to get a bit giddy about their future special day, and lots who had heard of our reputation of the Best Wedding Venue in Cumbria and wanted to see it for themselves! Our Wedding Team were on hand to answer any and all questions that couples had and give personal tours of the hotel.

We also had a special giveaway… If you haven’t heard already, we are currently running a competition with the NWEMail to WIN A WEDDING! Worth up to an incredible £25,000. To win, the Brides and Grooms who have entered have to collect tokens – the person with the most tokens wins! So, we had a bumper 50 tokens to give away to all those who had entered! It was great for those Brides and Grooms to see their potential prize and receive their bonus tokens.

Thank you to everyone who attended, we hope you enjoyed having a look around Abbey House Hotel as much as we enjoyed showing you how amazing your wedding day could be!

If you would like to come and have a show round of the hotel with a member of our Wedding Team, please contact us at or contact 01229 838282. We would love to show you everything that is possible to make your day truly special and personal to you.
