Open all year round for weddings, Capesthorne Hall is a truly beautiful setting for your fairy tale day. With elegant interiors and glorious gardens, the Cheshire venue is ideal for both your ceremony and wedding reception.

The venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies, marriages and partnerships in the Hall, Lakeside Wing and Outdoors.

The Hall and Lakeside Wing can be booked for the full venue experience and we offer full, exclusive use of both for your celebrations.

Alternatively, for a more contemporary wedding, the Lakeside Wing can be booked in isolation, with stunning views over the picturesque lake and formal gardens.

Accommodation

Luxury on-site accommodation is available for up to twenty-four guests and is set within the formal and walled gardens adjacent to the lake.

Hall Weddings

In the Hall, civil ceremonies can be held for up to 120 guests and wedding breakfasts for up to 80 guests in one room or 150 guests split between two rooms.

Following your romantic ceremony, champagne reception and wedding breakfast, your evening reception takes place in the Lakeside Wing.

Wedding couples at Capesthorne will enjoy a fantastic variety of services which are included as standard in the exclusive hire of the Hall. Floral arrangements, banqueting chairs and tables are included in the Hall, and the terrace overlooking the West Lawn is available for your post-ceremony drinks. The bride and bridesmaids will also have access to a private Dressing Room, allowing them to add the finishing touches to their bridal look.

In addition, the first floor exhibition is open to you and your guests to provide an insight into the history of the Hall.

Lakeside Weddings

Weddings can also take place in the Lakeside Wing on an exclusive basis for civil ceremonies with dining for up to 160 guests and capacity for 180 guests for an evening reception.

The wedding breakfast and evening celebrations are held in the Garden Room and Lakeside Marquee.

The Lakeside provides raised views over the beautiful lake and glorious gardens.

With Lakeside weddings, exclusive use of the gardens and grounds is included.

For larger guest lists, a marquee in the grounds can be arranged, allowing you to have a grand reception.

    Simply Perfect Dream venue with top tier service to match

    Choosing a venue is highly subjective - everyone has their own taste. We were looking for something classically English - a venue that was not only visually stunning but steeped in heritage. Capesthorne Hall is a wonderful example of this - frankly nothing in the area comes close.

    The true quality of Capesthorne Hall goes far beyond the wonderful aesthetics. In Lynn we had a wedding coordinator who was highly dedicated, genuine, and capable. Both in preparation for the wedding, and on the day itself, all of the Hall staff were incredibly professional and personable - we could not have asked for better service.

    All of our guests have remarked how spectacular the venue was - but even more importantly that they were made to feel very welcome and safe (given the context of COVID). Indeed, Lynn and the team showed great flexibility and understanding throughout the entire process - such compassion meant so much to us when rearranging our date due to the pandemic.

    We simply could not recommend Capesthorne Hall highly enough.

    Against all odds

    As you can imagine the week leading up to our special day has been one of the most incredibly stressful and worrying times. Every single day felt like a battle and you were always so helpful, positive and kind.

    Against all odds you made this happen and we could see the determination and belief from all of you to let us have our Wedding day. We had the most incredible day and it was a dream come true! Words cannot put into meaning how thankful we are of everything you have done for us and we will forever hold Capesthorne Hall close to our hearts. It was an incredible day and nobody will forget it.

    Nothing was too much trouble

    A huge thank you to all the staff at Capesthorne on Saturday and to all of you who helped in the run up to the big day.
    We had the most incredible day and everyone was blown away by the beauty of Capesthorne, thank you for ordering the sun! Nothing was too much trouble on the day and the guests were looked after wonderfully.
    Your accommodation is amazing, we could have stayed all week and to receive such a thoughtful card & gift from you all was such a lovely sentiment.

    Such an amazing venue

    From the moment we first met the fantastic team at Capesthorne and heard about all the options for really personalising our wedding, we knew that it was the venue for us.
    I would absolutely recommend Capesthorne Hall to the other couples, it’s such an amazing venue. We loved that you can have your wedding breakfast in the house, as we found that there aren’t many stately homes which offer this option.

    Eternally Grateful

    We are eternally grateful to the fab team at Capesthorne Hall for making our wedding day so special and memorable.

    The ladies at Capesthorne Hall are so lovely and everything you could wish for in a wedding co-ordinator. They certainly know their stuff and we trusted them 100% with organising our special day. They are totally on the ball and organise every single detail perfectly, but with minimum fuss. They are professional yet really friendly, down to earth and put you at ease. The perfect combination for a bride to be :-).
    Nothing was too much trouble and the entire experience from start to finish is one that we will never forget.

    I just wanted to send our heartfelt thanks to all the team for making Simon and Claire’s wedding day such a special event, and helping to make memories we will all treasure forever.

    Seeing the team working on Friday to get things ready really makes you begin to understand how much goes on behind the scenes.

    We cannot recommend it enough

    We just wanted to say a huge thank you for last Saturday, we had a fantastic wedding day. Whilst storm Brian wasn’t what we had planned for the weather the beautiful settings inside and at the front were perfect.

    Everyone has commented on such a stunning place and we can’t recommend it enough to family and friends for any future celebrations and weddings.

    The venue is simply stunning.

    We got married on 6th June 2014. From the moment we stepped through the doors at Capesthorne we were made to feel so welcome. The staff are so friendly and helpful. On the run up to the day and on the day itself all the staff were so helpful and made our day run so smoothly. The venue is simply stunning and we loved every minute of our Wedding Day.
