The perfect venue

We would definitely recommend Capesthorne Hall to any of our friends and family for their wedding venue! It's the perfect setting for any size of wedding party and you can easily make it your own. We had around 100 guests and used both the main hall and the lakeside suite on the day of our wedding, which offered the mix of the impressive stately hall to wow our guests on arrival with welcome drinks and canapés, then the bright and modern wedding breakfast and dancing location to continue the celebrations into the evening.

Lucy and the team were amazing at coordinating our day. Lucy was our main point of contact, she was so lovely, professional and very organised, she made everything run so smoothly in the run up to the big day and on the day itself.

Our wedding party also stayed in the on site accommodation, which is beautifully decorated and spacious. Our family were very impressed and it was so nice to all wake up the day after and have breakfast together while looking out onto the stunning lake and gardens.

It was a truly magical venue!

Perfect venue

Looking for a perfect wedding venue in Cheshire then look no further. Capesthorne Hall is fabulous. A beautiful family owned, historic hall in pristine and immaculate grounds with lots of perfect photo spots all around - in the grounds, the grand staircase and outside the hall. You can get married here, or just have the reception as our daughter did.

You can choose the old majestic splendour of the Hall (beautiful, roomy, access to the terrace overlooking the lawn) or the Lakeside venue just across the courtyard (modern, contemporary, extremely clean and well kept) in a nice intimate setting for a medium sized wedding party (some other place we looked at were huge). It is a glass conservatory / marquee with a beautiful twinkling ceiling overlooking the grounds.

We chose to use the Hall for the drinks reception and the Lakeside for the wedding breakfast, returning to the Hall for cake cutting and tea / coffee while the Lakeside was rearranged for the evening. It was just perfect, especially for the fickle English weather. The glass windows of the Lakeside give you wonderful views over the lake and gardens.

One cannot fault the attentive staff, both on the day and beforehand - everyone we met was friendly and helpful. Emails were answered quickly and they were always patient, putting your mind at ease and offering suggestions. (We mainly dealt with Lucy who was a true professional.) Our daughter’s wedding felt so important to them and not like a ‘wedding factory’ like some other venues can feel.

The overnight accommodation is nearby beside the lake and is beautiful, used by all the bridal party and has a communal breakfast room for the guests.

We searched for 4 to 5 months looking at almost every Cheshire venue before we found Capesthorne. Save yourself time and don’t hesitate to book - you won’t be disappointed.

Our perfect wedding

We’ve just celebrated our wedding at Capesthorne Hall. I’m admittedly a bit of a control freak but Lynn absolutely put me at ease from the initial viewing, to answering all my erratic questions and executing a gorgeous event on Saturday.

We felt we were in the safest hands and really appreciate team taking all the stress from us on the day. I know there are always things that might not go to quite to plan, and a huge amount of work from so many people that goes into making weddings seem to seamless, but we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

Capesthorne will always hold an incredibly special place in our hearts, we were so proud to host our guests there and it’s all down to such a wonderful team 😊

Out of this world...!

We had THE most magical wedding day at the beautiful Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire. We're so pleased we selected it as our venue after looking around half the country! Our guests are still raving about the stunning venue and grounds and the photo opportunities were great, even in October! We found Lynn and her team to be extremely professional, calm and reassuring throughout the process. She was attentive to all our needs, including letting us set up ahead of time, fly flags and lots of pre-meetings and prep. The family were also very generous with affordability and providing lovely flowers!
We had a full-length wedding day including a civil ceremony and mixed cultural wedding. We were able to use all the unique spaces around the house and lakeside for dinner, dancing, children's entertainment, and fireworks! We also stayed in the cottage overnight, which was extremely convenient. We can’t thank you enough, Lynn, for accommodating all of our needs and giving us the most memorable wedding day. We would highly recommend Capesthorne to other couples, you won't be disappointed ND neither will your guests!! Thank you for everything! Adela & Azhar xx

An incredible place to get married

We had an amazing wedding day at Capesthorne in August. From the first time we went to visit the venue we knew it was the place we wanted to get married - the house is so impressive and well maintained, the grounds are beautiful and the Lakeside building offers a great space for the evening reception. We were also so impressed by how friendly the team were and willing to answer our questions - we mainly dealt with Lucy initially who was brilliant, and Lynn was our wedding coordinator. In the run up to the day Lynn was great at communicating with us and making us feel reassured that everything was being dealt with (even things we didn't know needed to be planned!) and Lynn also coordinated with our other suppliers to make sure everyone knew where to be and when. We asked lots of questions and Lynn was always really responsive, helpful and professional in her replies. On the day itself Lynn checked in with us throughout the morning of the wedding to make sure everything was set and we were happy. Everything felt calm and really allowed us to focus on enjoying the day and not worrying about any of the logistics. There were also 4/5 staff from Capesthorne around throughout the day to help your guests and make sure things run smoothly. We can't thank Lynn and the Capesthorne team enough for making it such an incredible day! L&H.

Wedding at Capesthorne Hall May 2023

We would 5* recommend Capesthorne Hall as a wedding venue. When my husband and I first visited we knew this was the venue for us. We loved the mix of the stately hall and more modern Lakeside Wing. The grounds are stunning and there are so many great spots for photos!
The events team were fabulous and know exactly what they are doing. We initially met Lucy and later Lynn, both were lovely and very communicative. You could tell the team are very experienced at coordinating weddings and we felt very relaxed during the run up and on the big day itself. They really do go above and beyond and think of everything.
We also used the on-site accommodation which is done up to a high standard and reasonably priced. Our guests loved staying there and it was great to sit by the lake and debrief with everyone in the morning.
Thank you so much to the whole team!

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.

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.

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.

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.
