On Saturday April 1st I was lucky enough to be invited along to be Jenna and Phil’s Wedding DJ and host at the stunning Hoghton Tower.
Hoghton Tower, a Grade I listed building, is the ancestral home of the de Hoghton family. The de Hoghtons are descended directly from Harvey de Walter, one of the companions of William the Conqueror, and through the female line from Lady Godiva of Coventry, wife of Leofric, Earl of Mercia.
Re-created in 1565 by Thomas Hoghton, this ancient, fortified, hilltop manor house occupies a commanding position, 650ft above sea level. The Tower lies mid-way between Preston and Blackburn, with magnificent views of Lancashire, the Lake District and North Wales. Hoghton Tower is the only true baronial hall in Lancashire.
Over the centuries many royal guests have been welcomed and entertained here including James I, William III, George V & Queen Mary, and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Other distinguished visitors include William Shakespeare, JMW Turner and Charles Dickens.
Hoghton Tower really does make a stunning Wedding Venue, with its long drive way, its amazing views and all of the History surrounding the building.
Everything is made even better knowing that the catering team at Hoghton Tower are Campbell & Rowleys Catering. It is always a pleasure meeting up with Paul and Oscar from Rowleys…..their food is always so exquisite and served with the perfection you need at a Wedding.
Jenna and Phil had chosen Lionel Richies Truly as their first dance, a song perfect for a Wedding. After that we had a good Party Mix which suited everybody until later in the Evening where we got some 90’s Old Skool Dance Anthems on which went down a storm.
Many congratulations once again to the new Mr & Mrs Prince…..I hope you enjoy a long,happy and healthy life together.
