Here at The Great Hall at Mains, we provide an exclusive setting in which to celebrate some of the most memorable moments in your life.
For over 25 years couples searching for a premium wedding venue in Lancashire have been able to celebrate their wedding day by holding their Wedding Ceremony and Reception with us.
In 1995, following the changes permitted by the Marriage Act, Mains Hall became the first venue in the Fylde Coast to be granted a licence to perform the Marriage Ceremony on the premises, as an alternative to a Church or Registry Office.
Since then, hundreds of brides have chosen this picturesque and romantic setting for their wedding day and reception. The romantic setting, along with the exclusivity bestowed upon the wedding couple and their guests, all adds to the magic of the day.
We are now also able to offer Civil Partnership Ceremonies and Weddings for same sex couples who wish to make both an emotional and legal commitment to each other.
The Great Hall at Mains is also licensed for Naming Ceremonies and Renewal of Marriage Vows, for couples who wish to re-affirm their love and continued commitment to each other.
The romantic setting, along with the exclusivity bestowed upon the wedding couple and their guests, all adds to the magic of the day.
Mains Hall Manor can also be used for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies for numbers up to 30.
The Great Hall has been approved as a venue for marriages as an alternative to a Church or Registry Office under Section 26(1)(bb) of the Marriage Act 1949, and for Civil Partnerships under Section 6 (3A)(a) of the Civil Partnership Act 2004.
Guidance for those wishing to marry on approved premises.
If you are resident in Lancashire you will first need to contact the Ceremonies Officer for the area in which you live. The Ceremonies Officer will arrange an appointment for you, at a Lancashire Registration Office, to give a formal notice of your intention to marry. If you reside outside of Lancashire you will need to contact the Registration Office in the district where you live.
The Lancashire North Ceremonies Officer is based at the Lancaster Registration Office and deals with marriage ceremonies in Lancaster, Lune Valley and Wyre.

Couples should be advised that only the Superintendent Registrar can permit a civil, non-religious ceremony. Any music, reading, words or performances that form any part of the ceremony must be secular. The content and personalising of the ceremony must be agreed in advance with the Superintendent Registrar who will be attending the ceremony.
