My son is going to a wedding in June and he tells me it's in Mesnes Park, is there a Wedding Chapel there?

I think the lodge at the entrance to the park can be used for weddings

From www.wigan.gov.uk:

Mesnes Park, Wigan has now been licensed to hold civil ceremonies. The two venues within the park are the Lodge and the Bandstand (only available May through to September weather permitting). The lodge can hold a maximum of 50 guests.
