Day weddings for up to 30 people

An elegant and intimate day weddingfor up to 30 people can be held at the hotel (Sunday to Thursday). These can be booked up to a year in advance to secure dates. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Couples choosing day weddings are usually married at 12h30, so that there is plenty of time to enjoy a relaxed ceremony before being seated for the wedding breakfast by 14h00. Guests can then enjoy the meal, speeches and cutting of the cake before the departure of non-resident guestsis required at17h30.

A popular way to extend your day is to hire a boat on Lake Windermere – contact Windermere Lake Cruises on +44 1539442600 for more details and a charter pack.

If required, we can also make up to a maximum of eight bedrooms available for day weddings (this enables other resident guests to continue to enjoy the hotel’s facilities too).

If you’d like to reserve overnight accommodation for all your guests, timings for day weddings can be tailored for a slightly later ceremony (up to 16h00 at the latest), followed by the wedding breakfast dinner served in the early evening.


We are licensed for both civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, and these can take place in either our stunning Billiard Room, which overlooks the extensive gardens of Linthwaite, or in the summer house overlooking our private tarn.

The ceremony room hire charge includes one pedestal and a £100 flower allowance with our hotel florist.


The ceremony will be conducted by our local registrars, who must be contacted directly by the couple before confirming dates and times at Linthwaite. The civil ceremony usually last no more than 30 minutes.

The Kendal Registry Office can be contacted on +44 1539 713 567. All arrangements should be made directly with the registrars and all registrar fees are payable directly to them.
Dates with the registrar can now be booked up to one year in advance at an additional cost.


We can make up to a maximum of eight bedrooms (to accommodate up to 16 people) available for day weddings (this enables other resident guests to continue to enjoy the hotel’s facilities too).

For the bride: Why not spend your final night as a single woman in our luxurious Loft Suite (while we keep your groom tucked up somewhere else in the hotel – just for the one night) and be joined by him on your wedding night…


We have a dedicated on-site wedding coordinator to assist you with the planning of your perfect wedding day. If you require any further information or would like to arrange a show round at the hotel, please feel free to contact Yasmine Hughes at or phone +44 1539488600.
