Thank you Belle Epoque
By Mr and Mrs Tizard, on 07 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Mar 2017
Where do we start.
From the moment we walked in the door of the Belle Époque a long time ago we just knew that it was just the venue for us for our wedding and meeting you was the beginning of what was the dream wedding planning journey that brides and grooms dream of.
Sunday the 5th of March 2017 was an epic day. The quirky, uniqueness of the Belle Époque cast a magical spell on us, our guests and the whole day. All of our family and friends spoke so highly of the venue, the format of the day, the attention to detail, the phenomenal food, the sublime service from all of your team and each and every one said the venue was us to a tee.
We can not find enough words to express just how much John and Alvaro mean to us for everything they did on the day. They are an absolute credit to the Belle Époque and we will hold them dear in our memories of the day forever. We did shed a tear or two when trying to thank them but please pass on our greatest Thank You again.
To the rest of the team, from Paul the chef to the waiting and bar staff and especially the two evening hosts Thank You from us both, u were amazing, and truly friendly, nothing was too much trouble and you were such an integral part of what was a million dreams come true day for both us and our family and guests.
We didn't want to leave on Monday morning, and we wish we could relive it every weekend.
You have the perfect venue, and team, and we hope to see you soon.

Wedding Here was Peferct
By Zoe Oughton, on 20 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Feb 2017
We just wanted to give you some feedback on our wonderful wedding day at The Belle Epoque.
As an absolutely high point - a couple of your staff particularly deserve a mention and that is John - who was an absolute legend throughout the night, I never had an empty glass and he looked after everyone all night, He was thoughtful, observant and quick to respond , little touches such as sending for a glass of water just before I went in or demonstrating his dancing skills with such aplomb!
Also - highly mentioned must be Al ( the Spanish young man) who was polite, enthusiastic and for whom nothing was too hard. We were particularly touched when he came to make sure that he congratulated us before leaving for the night and to let us know that he wold be there in the morning to sort us all out.
What absolute stars!
The rest of the staff followed on behind - you have a great team!
We wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending The Belle Epoque for anyone's wedding!
Thanks and best wishes
Stunning, quirky, breath taking venue.... 5 star

We got married in the Belle Epoque on the 23/01/16. It was the best day of our lives. We were blow away by the level of professionalism and quality of service we received. The staff are amazing and make the venue extra special. All my guest commented on how helpful the staff were, and how they would drop everything to accommodate you. Kelly the wedding planner helped create a stress free build up. John on the day was an absolute dream, keeping our stress levels down by being there at all times to ensure we were happy and had everything we needed. The venue itself is beautiful! We have just received our pictures and the Belle Epoque looks stunning. Thank you so much for being so fantastic, you truly made our day!

We had our wedding on 26th May at the Belle Époque.
Overall we had a fabulous day, the food was beautifully cooked and the staff were wonderfully attentive and cannot be faulted- particularly Albert and Claudio. The building and atmosphere is wonderful- it is very intimate and romantic.
The only dissappointment for us is that we did not see samples of the evening food, sorbet or canapés. The sorbet which we ordered is not what I would class as sorbet- it was more of a mousse and was served in a shot glass. The canapés were tiny crackers with mousse apart from the tempura vegetables, which were lovely.
Most disappointing was the evening mini's, which were part of the package we selected; when it says mini they mean it- they were very small, more like canapés. The bacon rolls were rolls that looked like they had been cut into quarters, the fish and chip cones held about 3 chunky chips in them and the fish was similarly small- I didn't see the Welsh rarebit but I was informed by someone who managed to get a piece that it was a small strip of bread.
The food was circulated around the building which is perhaps the reason why many people reported they didn't get any of the evening food. Most other people reported they tried one or two of the items but when you have paid for 70 + 40 evening guests who should have 3 items each and 6 evening guests did not attend there should have been more than enough food for everyone.
People ended up bringing take alway food into the building (2 evening guests who had travelled from Bournemouth) others went out to look for food, which is unacceptable.

our wedding day at the Belle Epoque was absolutely Perfect, my husband and I could not of wished for a better day.
The staff especially Richard and Claudio were fantastic they helped our day run so smoothly. Our guests were hugely impressed with the food, we received so many compliments. The venue itself is unique and stunning.
To conclude all I can say is our wedding day was AMAZING!

Please find below our testimonial for our wedding on 9th August 2013:
An enormous thank you to all the team for a fabulous day. You really couldn't have done more to help leading up to the day or during the reception. The food and drinks were amazing and the setting was so stunning. Thank you for making our big day so special.
Our day was magical!
By Mr & Mrs Griffiths, on 13 Aug 2012
Our day was truly the most fantastic day! every single thing was amazing. The food was so brilliant, everybody came up to us to tell us how beautiful it had been and we are all wondering how you get so many perfect steaks out at the same time?! The staff were really lovely and so friendly. Chatting away with us at the end of the evening.
The room looked lovely, the sun shone and we couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff are discreet but always there when you need them. I can't think of a single thing to fault.
The planning leading up to the just lovely from start to finish. It's not just about the day, it's about the run up too, all the little details.
And when we arrived, I will always remember Collette printing out a reading for our flower girl that had been left it at home. It was just before the ceremony and a big moment for her and it was dealt with it so quickly and calmly.
Belle Epoque made our wedding truly, truly magical.

We found the run up to our wedding so smooth with no hic-ups along the way. Mainly due to the fact that we had every confidence in our venue. We cannot thank Belle Epoque enough for the wonderful support they have given us throughout the process. Our day was just as beautiful as had hoped. Collette was amazing leading up to the day and we are so grateful that we were blessed with the guidence through things. Richard and the guys gave us quality service on the day and the food was perfect. Wish we could do it all again

Belle Epoque is a truly unique venue that offers everything that a bride and groom could want. From the initial viewing to saying goodbye the morning after the wedding, the staff and service they provided was first class with no complaints whatsoever. The setting of the ceremony room is intimate, dramatic and magical and added to the special occasion. The food was fabulous and the accommodation was superb. Belle Epoque made all our dreams come true and made for an unforgettable day that will live forever in our thoughts. Thank you to all the team at Belle Epoque.

We got married at Belle Epoque earlier this month and cannot praise the venue or the staff enough! We were originally planning to get married next year, but after looking at Belle Epoque, we decided not to wait and booked a last minute date! With just 3 months to plan our wedding, we were amazed at how easy Belle Epoque made the organising process for us. We couldn’t have done it without them. Many of our friends and family commented that it was the best wedding they had been to. The service was relaxed, friendly and efficient, and the food was equally as good. We haven’t had our official photos back yet, but the pics posted on Facebook are amazing! I would definitely recommend looking at Belle Epoque as an option for your wedding day, but be prepared to fall in love with it, just like we did!
Very, Very happy and memorable!

We got married in February 2011 - Our day was absolutely perfect from start to finish! We cannot thank Collette, Mike and all the staff at the Belle Epoque enough! From the minute i arrived on the friday evening, Mike was so helpful, he did so much to help! On the day itself he was so on the ball, making sure everything was going well. He seemed so caring and genuine. It seemed like he really did care about how our day was going, really wanting to make it the best he could for us, he was so professional, and that is so hard to come by. The food on the day was absolutely amazing! Everybody commented on how delicious it was! The day was so perfect, and if it wasnt for Collette, Mike and all the staff who worked towards our day then it wouldnt of been possible, i have never come across a more professional, hard working, caring team of people, and they were words coming from all our guests too! I have been and will continue, to recommmend the Belle Epoque to everyone i meet. We are waiting on our photo album now, I cant wait to see out fabulous photos! Our day was without doubt you made special,by the care and attention from everyone at Belle Epoque. It was a very very happy, memorable day!
Excellent value for money
By Mr. & Mrs. Vas, on 07 Mar 2011
My husband & I were married at Belle Epoque in Knutsford 4th Feb 2011, the day was perfect in every way. My friends & family have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The venue has such an intimate feeling & creates such an amazing atmosphere for everyone.
From a brides point of view planning the day was an extremely smooth process the help & advise from the team was invaluble to me. I really wanted to put together an intimate day that was was completely stress free - my advise to future brides is to put there trust & faith into Belle Epoque they will turn your dream into reality & deliver excellent food, wine & service. The Belle Epoque is such a romantic venue with lots of character it has a style of it's own that no other venue I viewed had......
Value for money is excellent, I want to do it all again!!!!!
