A Fylde luxury wedding venue has signed a new caterer to give its customers a wider range of choice for their dream weddings.

The Great Hall at Mains, the luxury wedding venue near Blackpool, has appointed Carringtons Catering as an official food and drink provider.

The venue will now work in partnership with the 
catering firm, which operates out of Roby Mill near Skelmersdale, on a range of specially selected dishes suitable for sit-down meals, wedding breakfasts, canapes and buffets.

But it will also continue to work closely with local restaurant Twelve of Thornton with its modern British style menus.

The Great Hall at Mains is a timber-framed building designed a decade ago to replicate an original banqueting hall on the site more than 500 years ago. It is owned by Adele and Roger Yeomans who built it in 2007 as an extension to their popular Mains Hall self catering accommodation business they acquired in 1989.

The Great Hall is capable of holding up to 300 for a wedding reception or more with an external marquee.

Adele said: “We have been in the wedding and hospitality business for over 25 years.

“This is all about offering customers choice.

“We cannot be more delighted to welcome Carringtons Catering on board as one of our preferred outside caterers and we look forward to working together in the future.”

She added that it was the latest move for the Little Singleton business which used to be a 12-bedroom hotel before its conversion to a seven bedroom accommodation.

Alongside a honeymoon suite, with wet room, bath and feature walk-in dressing room, the revamped house still features open fires and Jacobean panelling inside its timber-framed walls.

“We have people coming in for the Illuminations and Christmas is coming up soon so it is always in demand as well as providing accommodation for couples and their families for weddings at the Great Hall.

Carringtons Catering director Helen Wynn said: “We are thrilled to have been appointed as one of the recommended caterers at the Great Hall at Mains.

“It is such an exquisite venue with so much history behind it so this partnership is very exciting for us.

“Having become renowned for our diverse wedding catering, it felt only natural to team up with the foremost wedding venue in Lancashire – we feel a great sense of pride to have been selected by such a prestigious site.”
