At both Colshaw Hall and sister venue, Merrydale Manor, the bride and groom walk down the aisle after the ceremony. Firstly they are led out of the Stables ceremony room by the very talented and well-organised Master of Ceremonies. Meanwhile, this also allows the wedding guests to exit the room and form two lines outside the doors.  The bride and groom then get to greet their guests, who are excited to shower them with confetti.

Your wedding reception and wedding breakfast

After the ceremony and confetti at the Stables, and after all your guests have congratulated the newly married couple; the bride and groom followed by their guests then can make their way over to the Pavilion area. The perfect space for your drinks reception. This then leads out onto the walled gardens for you and your guests to enjoy.

Your wedding breakfast is then served in the incredible Peel suite. Offering your guests a memorable wedding meal in the most luxurious surroundings. And of course, such a luxurious venue is fully air-conditioned to create the perfect setting for your special day. Light floods in through the magnificent windows throughout the day which line either side of the wedding suite. Giving you stunning views of the surrounding grounds. In addition, you also get a fantastic toastmaster included.
