No Wedding too Small

If there is one thing we have learned following lockdown, small weddings in the Barn work a treat! Be it a wedding of 2, or a wedding of 30 we would love to host your special day.

Weddings can come in all sizes and formats, and even names - whether you want to call it an elopement wedding, dinner party wedding or cocktail hour wedding - we've got you covered.

The civil ceremony can take place in the Tithe Barn, in the Regency Drawing Room in the Hall or at one of our outdoor venues (weather depending naturally!).

We are often asked what a wedding with small numbers looks like; we think it looks great, but you can be the judge!

Managed by our extremely experienced team, your day will run flawlessly and exactly how you want it.

In collaboration with Flower Design, we have put together an exclusive package for the more intimate wedding. This includes - two flower dressed candelabras to be used on pedestals to frame the ceremony and as table centrepieces afterwards, one Registrar’s/ top table design, a Bridal Bouquet and a Grooms boutonniere, two extra boutonnieres. All in ivory Roses and assorted seasonal fresh flowers & foliage.

Food & Drink

When dealing with fewer guests you certainly have the flexibility to do what you like for your meal.

You have the choice of a traditional afternoon tea served on vintage china (up to 20 guests), or a gourmet 4-course supper for 20-30 prepared by our award winning caterers Twelve.

We are happy to recommend wines with the assistance of our Vintner Miles Corish MW, or whatever drink you may fancy.

Venue Dressing

Now for the venue dressing! We have collaborated on an optional 'dressing' package with Amoré Event Stylists, who will do the following - individual chair sashes, aisle décor and base/charger plates for between up to 30 guests.

Last but not least, to capture your day perfectly, we have collaborated with three of our local photographers, Jules Fortune Photography; David Scholes Photography; and Nick English Photography who have put together a special rate for a 2 hour session (or thereabouts!) as an optional extra.

Intimate Wedding Details


We class numbers up to 30 as intimate. We even do weddings of 4, as we said - no wedding too small!


A day structured for the more intimate weddings, perfect for those who don't want the numbers but still want the beautiful style.


The Woodland Glade is an exclusive glamping site of 10 luxury micro lodges situated in the midst of natural oak and beech woodland. Each micro lodge is a self contained ‘hotel’ room with a double bed, en-suite shower room, kitchenette, and living area with sofa. Located in the heart of the Forest of Bowland on the historic Browsholme Hall Estate, these beautifully designed lodges provide quality self-catering accommodation for any guests attending weddings at the Tithe Barn.

Lonesome Pine

An idyllic forest setting, close to the lake and surrounded by trees and woodland plants. Let the beauty of nature enhance your day and take your guests on an enchanted woodland adventure.

The Lily Pond

The Lily Pond sits at the southern end of the Wilderness garden, and the pavilion is a beautiful, rustic building crafted from Browsholme’s own two hundred year old oak trees. The roof is hand covered in wooden shingles, and the setting is peaceful and embodies English country garden. The light is just wow

The Italian Steps

The Italian Garden is located by the Hall below our historic yew walk, the trees of which are over 300 years old. Truly unique, the ceremony takes place on the stone steps, with aisle formed either down the promenade or just below the yew walk above the guests.
