Today’s wedding venue walkthrough is the lovely Crimble Hall, located in Rochdale, England and our tour guide is Tina Galasso, the venue’s Events Coordinator. Enjoy!

Tell us a bit about your venue.

Formally the home of renowned Photographer and mill owner Joseph Fenton, Crimble Hall is a beautiful converted manor house situated on the rural outskirts of Rochdale, Lancashire, in the UK. Approached via a long driveway, and with extensive landscaped gardens, it provides a tranquil and romantic setting, yet it is within easy reach of both Manchester and Leeds. Licensed to hold wedding ceremonies in the opulent Peacock Room restaurant, and with our sister hotel providing accommodation, we have the flexibility to offer couples all-inclusive wedding packages or simply a fabulous fine dining reception venue.

What makes your business unique?

Crimble Hall boasts the two AA Rosette and Michelin Knife and Fork award-wining restaurant, The Peacock Room, making us uniquely placed to cater to couples wanting outstanding food as well as beautiful manor house surrounds. We also offer a uniquely bespoke approach, with extremely high standards of service and flexibility. Part of this is to offer a wedding breakfast menu of dishes that are tailor-made and unique to each couple.

We take a very personal approach and offer a bespoke wedding service. We have a variety of options available and also welcome any suggestions and ideas from couples to tailor their wedding day. Our wedding team and Head Chef always work closely with couples, offering a wealth of advice and doing all they can to ensure we achieve exactly what they want.

Do you have any funny stories about a past wedding or event?

One wedding that really stands out for me was a Halloween, Tim Burton themed wedding where all the staff was dressed up in spooky costumes.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned?

To be meticulous. Sometimes what seems like a small detail can be extremely meaningful to a couple, so it’s really important to get every element just right.


Any tips for couples on the hunt for a venue?

Collect lots of ideas and clippings of things you like and bring them along to the venues. We love it when couples can show us what they want and we can quickly get on board and advise on how they can achieve it!
