Wedding Venue for Hire in Leigh

Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, and you owe it to yourself to make it one to remember. Planning for a wedding is often stressful, with so many different things to arrange. Fortunately for couples getting married in Leigh, help is at hand.

Here at the Ellesmere Suite, we offer a one-stop solution to anybody wanting to get married here. Not only do we provide you with a large and versatile venue for the big event, we can also assist with all the other things you need for your big day.


An Affordable, Versatile Venue

On your wedding day, you will have access to the entire Ellesmere Suite, including our upstairs ceremony room for the wedding itself and our main hall for the reception and evening do. The main hall can fit up to 150 guests, and we can arrange the tables and chairs to match any seating plan you might have. Both rooms have their own adjoining bars for your guests to get alcoholic and soft drinks, and we can decorate them to match any style or colour scheme.


Whether you want a formal sit-down wedding breakfast, a buffet-style meal for your evening reception, or a combination of the two, you’re guaranteed delicious food and exceptional service at the Ellesmere Suite. We have our own in-house catering team standing by to craft incredible menus for your special day, all tailored to meet any dietary requirements or taste preferences. Your meals will be served by our friendly and professional front-of-house staff.

The main hall is generously proportioned, with high ceilings and plenty of room for dancing and making merry. There is space for your entertainment, whether it’s a DJ, a solo singer, a wedding band, or a full-string quartet. If you don’t know who to book for your big day, speak to our team. We have a large network of entertainment providers and are happy to help you decide which one is right for you.

Get Married Here

We’re more than just a place to hold your wedding reception and evening do; we are fully licenced by Wigan Council to hold wedding ceremonies on the premises. This means you don’t have to hop from one venue to another. You can spend the whole day here if you’d prefer.

Room to Breathe

Your wedding day can be an intense occasion, with you and your other half being the centre of attention all day long. We have several spaces available where you can take yourself out of the action for a few hours. These include an upstairs lounge, where you can catch your breath or get changed for your evening party. There are also bars that break off from the main hall, making them a little quieter and somewhere you can unwind in peace.

Whether you need someone to decorate the venue, provide live entertainment for your evening do, take photographs or videos, or anything else, we can put you in touch with them.
