If you’ve been looking for wedding venues in Derbyshire, you will know that there is a great selection out there. So when it comes to booking your special day, what makes The Lion Hotel stand out from the crowd?
Here at The Lion Hotel Belper, we have two beautiful rooms to host your ceremony and wedding breakfast, followed by your evening celebrations.
Our Arkwright Suite is our main room, suitable for accommodating up to 70 guests for the ceremony and up to 120 for the reception.
If you are looking for a more intimate room, our Strutt Suite is perfect for up to 30 guests for the ceremony and wedding breakfast. The perfect size for a simple intimate wedding, which are increasing in popularity, even post covid.
Our rooms can be decorated to suit your colour scheme, your preferences and we can even make adjustments to the layout, depending on how you would like your day or evening to play out. Such as increasing the space for the dancefloor, or removing it entirely should you wish.
The stunning town of Belper has played a part in wedding parties for many years. This unique location has a great deal to offer not only within the 18th-century hotel but also the local area.
We appreciate that it is not only the memories of your day that need to be perfect but also the photographs. We are located a short distance to the Belper water gardens. Here you can find the most stunning places for wedding photography. From pictures in the bandstand to the lawns with vast colourful floral arrangements. And even the river itself for those water lovers.
Brides, don’t forget to make the most of your wedding car too, they look beautiful in photographs, particularly overlooking the park!
Let’s Talk Wedding Food
For some couples, getting the wedding breakfast just right is a highly important factor in choosing their venue. For the foodies amongst us, we completely understand why.
This is why all the options on our wedding breakfast menu are lovingly prepared in our kitchen, ready to go straight out as fresh as possible. With the choice of one meat and one vegetarian option available for your guests, it’s imperative that you make the right choices over which to offer. We offer a taster session to allow you to make the perfect choice. And remember, it’s your day, you need to enjoy it more than anyone!
Of course, it doesn’t stop at the wedding breakfast. You also have to consider your evening guests. We have an excellent selection of buffet options, alongside the provided pizzas and sandwiches courtesy of Lion’s wonderful chefs.
Of course, you are under no obligation to use any of our suggested partners. However, our wedding planners have a wonderful list of our recommended local partners. So if you are looking for a wedding photographer, a florist, or even your wedding cars, our planners are on hand to help you find the perfect set-up for your wedding day.
Our main Arkwright Suite is the perfect place to ensure that your entertainment perfectly reflects you as a couple. This means that we can accommodate acoustic singers, a live band, or even a simple DJ.
Of course, we have contacts in the industry, however, finding the perfect sound for your night is a very personal choice, and we welcome whatever choices you would like to make.
