The most perfect wedding setting

We got married at Davenport House in February and they provided us with the most perfect day. Lizzie, Charley, Ian and the rest of the team were the best hosts we could have hoped for. Nothing was too much to ask and the guests all commented on the hospitality shown to them. The setting is utterly gorgeous, our weather was less than favourable so we did not make the most of the grounds but this didn't matter, the house was setting enough and so atmospheric! The food was utterly AMAZING and better than most restaurant food I have eaten. The venue feels intimate and grand at the same time.
I literally cannot recommend this place enough, they gave us the wedding we had always wanted and more!

The Most Perfect Wedding

Me and my (now) wife chose Davenport House as our wedding venue in mid 2022, to get married in September 2023, and it was the best decision we could have made. We looked at a range of Georgian style manor house type venues located in Cheshire, North Wales and the West Midlands areas. It blew all of the competition away in terms of the venue aesthetics, the balance in design (i.e. period characteristics vs modern design), the impressive condition of the property for its age plus what it offered for our wedding weekend.

Staff and service - In the UK, this is usually something that is average at best - if you're lucky. At Davenport House, the service from all staff was 10/10. I honestly don't think we've ever had better service for anything. We had a wedding planner from the start (Megan), who was an absolute saint and was fundamental in making the whole wedding a success. She was also instrumental in helping us find a way for our 'little' dog Bernie to be a part of the main event. Thanks Megan!

Accommodation - The fantastic condition, design and decor for Davenport House extends to all areas of the estate. The rooms are fantastic, very big, well maintained and cleaned religiously by the venue. We had no issues or problems from all of the guests who stayed onsite over the 3 days.

Food and drink - This got a lot of deserved praise from the guests too. We got to tailor our entire menu and it worked perfectly for what we wanted for the 3 days. The oyster bar and luxurious charcuterie board went down particularly well the day before the wedding.

I could keep writing much, much more on how fantastic this venue was for our wedding. But the best advice I could give for any interested couples is to go and visit it in person and reach out to Davenport House with any questions. Our own wedding ended up becoming both perfect and the best wedding we've ever been to. Thanks guys again!

Our wedding day was a fairytale, everything we could have dreamed of and more. Lizzie and Charley were fantastic in their support, organisation and professionalism in planning our wedding. The venue is simply spectacular- breathtaking. Our guests were blown away. The day ran so smoothly it was simply perfect. The food was out of this world our guests couldn't get enough. All the staff at the house went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and having a great day. The team were also extremely supportive of last minute changes/additions. The Davenport experience was truly wonderful and I'm sad to see it end right from our initial meetings, food tasting and finally our special day. Thank you: Lizzie, Charley, Ian and all of the team for a truly memorable day for us and our guests. Mr and Mrs Kissane

Our incredible wedding 鉂わ笍

We just got married here 鉂わ笍

Our special thank you must go to Tallulah! She organised our day from day one, made us feel so comfortable, looked after us to the highest standard and sorted everything!!

We must also thank Lizzie, Charley and the whole team 馃グ

The whole day was SPECTACULAR!!! 馃拲馃帀

We were originally getting married in Italy but covid put a stop to it. I didn't think I would find a place in this country that I was going to love, but wanted my family and friends with me. I fell in love with Davenport House almost immediately. I am so fussy but this was incredible, the house, the history, the grounds... Wow!!! Tallulah was also a big factor to us booking here.

People couldn't believe how gorgeous the whole place was, we felt enormous pride having our special day held here. We were told how organised and smooth the day was by guests, family and even our photographers.

If you want a magical, scenic, organised and smooth day then Davenport House is 100% your venue and team.

We can't thank you all enough for making our day everything we ever wanted. You and venue will always hold a special place in our hearts 馃グ

Perfect wedding day

We are so glad that we chose Davenport House as our wedding venue. All the staff are lovely and can't do enough for you. We felt at ease during the whole planning process - even during covid - as the team are so good at what they do and think of every detail. Changing our date due to covid couldn't have been easier with Davenport House, and we're so grateful for this. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, as well as the quality of the food and drink. We can't recommended Davenport House enough!

Our perfect wedding day

Thank you so much for helping us create our perfect wedding day. Davenport House is such a special venue and the food was incredible. Our family and friends are still talking about what a wonderful day they had. Our family said staying overnight in the onsite cottages felt like a real holiday, and you were so accommodating.

Thank you for making the whole wedding planning experience so straight forward and relaxed. Who ever said wedding planning is stressful clearly didn鈥檛 get married at Davenport!
Thank you x

The best wedding

Dear Lizzie, Joe, Nikki and all the Davenport House Team. Thank you so much for everything you did to ensure Conor and I had the best day of our lives. From start to finish we felt in good hands. One of our wedding photos shows Lizzie subtly holding out my veil as I walk down the aisle and I think that sums up how incredible and the attention to detail you all put into the day. We had so many compliments on the venue and tentative team, not to mention people saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had. I wish we could do it all again!
Thanks again, lots of love, Conor and Lyndsey

Memorable and Magical

Huge thanks for everything you did for us to make our wedding day so memorable and magical. All our guests commented on how fabulous Davenport House was and how all their needs were catered for. Wendi and I were treated like royalty and made to feel very special on such a fabulous day and all your time and effort was greatly appreciated by the both of us. We couldn't imagine a more wonderful and magical setting that Davenport House.
