If you are considering a traditional church wedding, St Leonards Downham is a gem. Dating back to the 15th century and steeped in tradition, the vista over to Pendle Hill was considered by Queen Mary to be the most beautiful view from any church door in England.
There are many excellent local venues in the Ribble Valley, but why not take a look at Downham Village Hall? It is possible to exclusively hire the entire space from just £600 for a weekend.
You may well have your own caterer in mind, but we can recommend local options. These include wonderful home cooking from Downham-based Greendale View Kitchen and the services of the outside catering division of the Assheton Arms - a flagship Seafood Pub Company eaterie that has won many awards.
