Set in the beautiful Ribble Valley and with the stunning backdrop of the Stonyhurst Grade I listed building, Stonyhurst provides the perfect setting for your dream wedding.

Available exclusively to former pupils and staff, a wedding at Stonyhurst College is truly unique.

Whilst the 15th century College building offers countless opportunities for memorable moments, the gardens boast outstanding views of Pendle Hill and the surrounding scenery, providing a wealth of impressive photo opportunities.

Our dedicated Events Team will be on hand throughout the process to provide you with as much choice and assistance as possible, ensuring your special day will be everything you dreamed of. We have plenty of experience helping couples with all aspects of their wedding, from flowers and centrepieces to photographers, entertainment and catering.


Our in-house catering team, with over 25 years’ experience in banqueting, have designed a bespoke wedding breakfast and evening buffet menu, with a wide range of items which we believe are successful when catering for larger parties.

All our ingredients are fresh and sourced locally, making the most of the fantastic produce the Ribble Valley has to offer.


Availability for weddings at the College is limited, but if you are considering Stonyhurst College as the venue for your wedding, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of the Events Team to arrange a show round and discuss availability.
