Getting married at East Lodge

Weddings at East Lodge

An introduction to Weddings at East Lodge

The most important day of your life deserves a special setting - a location that's not just out of the ordinary, but extraordinary...the highest rated 3 star hotel in the Peak District and 2009 winner of a Silver award at the recent 'tourism oscars' held in York.


The bedrooms are beautiful and the food is superb, while the attentive staff understand what makes a guest feel special. You don't even need to worry about separate wedding and reception venues because this idyllic rural hideaway has its own Civil Wedding Licence.

Exclusive retreat

That means you can enjoy an entire fairytale day, from exchange of vows through to secluded late-night romance, within the luxury and the privacy of a country-house estate. Here, within the Derbyshire Peak District region's most exclusive retreat for marriage ceremonies and celebrations, you really will feel as if the world revolves around you.

Civil wedding licence

Our Civil Wedding Licence means you can choose to hold your marriage ceremony as well as your wedding celebrations at East Lodge Hotel. If you'd like to get married in our superb wedding room, first check the date with your Registrar.
