Stunning Mesnes Park Lodge is now open six-days a week for engaged couples to tie the knot thanks to high demand.
Bride and grooms-to-be can now book their big day on any day except Tuesday as opposed to just the weekend, so there’s even more choice available for those who found a diamond ring in their Christmas stocking.
The lodge, located in the heart of Mesnes Park in Wigan town centre has been a popular wedding venue since it became licensed in 2014 and Wigan Council’s registrars team have officiated more than 500 ceremonies in front of its floor to ceiling windows.
Councillor Terry Halliwell, cabinet member at Wigan Council said: “Everybody wants their wedding day to be absolutely perfect and we pride ourselves in offering a personalised service to give people everything they need. “By opening up our diaries, we can help happy couples find a day best for them and gives even more flexibility with reception locations and other suppliers that will make up the rest of their big day.
“The lodge really is a hidden gem and is a beautiful setting nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. Viewings can be arranged and our staff will be on hand every step of the way to work with couples to make sure their whole wedding experience is special.”
Couples who choose the lodge can expect to marry overlooking the beautiful surroundings of Menes Park, including vibrant flower beds planted and maintained by volunteers and the council’s Greenspaces team.
The characteristic water fountain is also within view and can be used as a backdrop for scenic wedding photography.
There is also space in front of the park’s ornate front gates for wedding cars to park before whisking away the newlyweds after the ceremony.
Also available in Mesnes Park is the popular bandstand, which can be booked for summer weddings.
The bandstand has limited availability so for more information about this option or to view the lodge and other council venues, please visit our registrars page.
