Weddings that make a difference

Many newlyweds began their married lives celebrating with friends and family here at the Mansion House

Many newlyweds began their married lives celebrating with friends and family here at the Mansion House throughout the 20th century – and The Reader is continuing this tradition for future generations. 

The Mansion House is a unique, elegant and magical wedding reception venue in the beautiful and historic setting of Calderstones Park. With newly refurbished spaces that can host from 50 to 100-plus guests, and lush greenery for the perfect wedding photos. 

As a charity, we put people first, and you can be sure you and your guests will enjoy the warmest of Reader welcomes. And, by choosing to celebrate with us, you’re making a difference to people and communities across the UK. 

Come along to our Spring Wedding Fair on Sunday 1 March
