Award-winning architecture 

Engaged couples who would like traditional and modern are at home at Bowcliffe Hall. The most exciting feature is the award-winning Blackburn Wing, available for ceremonies and wedding receptions. Bowcliffe Hall describes the structure as a treehouse and it’s easy to see why. Nestled in ancient woodland the aeroplane shaped building looks as if it’s soaring amongst the treetops. A truly unique feature which allows Bowcliffe Hall wedding photography to be so different from most other countryside venues. Aside from the quirky wedding photos guests can enjoy all the space has to offer. Designed to pay homage to Robert Blackburn, a local man who introduced the first scheduled air service. Little details hinting at the structure’s namesake can be found dotted around.
