Amazing wedding venue!

We are so pleased we chose Davenport House for our wedding reception. Charley and the team were so helpful and thoughtful. Putting canapés behind the bar for us and making sure everything ran so smoothly. I am obsessed with the stunning house and grounds and it was absolutely perfect! Thank you so much for making our day so special!!

Our Perfect Wedding Venue

Where to begin with our beautiful venue and thanking the people who made it all happen! We got married in November at Davenport House and it was easily the best day of our lives. We chose Davenport because we wanted to host our cosy winter wedding in a big grand house in the country, with all the grandeur and class but to still feel like an intimate celebration with our family and closest friends, and it was perfect in delivering just that. It is utterly beautiful, the location was perfect and exactly what we wanted. The food was absolutely AMAZING, we had so many compliments from our guests and we are so grateful for the team in delivering such a fabulous wedding breakfast. Thank you so much to Lizzie who couldn’t do more to help us have our dream day, and Ian who delivered the best service to us and our guests (the pizza at 2am was very much appreciated)

Massive massive thank you to Charley our wedding planner, who was so so helpful throughout our wedding planning process and on the day, I can’t thank her enough. She was always there whenever I needed her, helped me so much with creating our dream day and I will be forever grateful to her for keeping me sane! Whenever I had any worries I knew she was just a phone call away, which helped me a lot when planning a wedding!

Charley, Lizzie and Ian thank you for everything - best team ever. Our day was seamless and it was all down to you and your incredible team.

Our dream English country wedding

I just wanted to write to say a huge, enormous thank you to Charley and all the team at Davenport House. We still can’t believe how perfect our day was, and lots of our guests have told us it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to. The team were all a huge part of making that happen. It was incredibly seamless and well planned on the day, meaning we genuinely didn’t have to think about a thing, except for enjoying ourselves. The day ran to schedule perfectly and even certain touches we didn’t know or expect to happen were planned by you and the team, which made the day even more special. Thank you so much for giving us our dream wedding day. We can’t wait to see the full set of pictures and the video now to relive it all!

More than we could have dreamed

Our wedding day was amazing. When looking for a venue we weren't just looking for something wow, we needed to have people who were enthused and passionate about their work - we found that at Davenport House.

From our first phone call & meeting with Lizzie and Tallulah, we knew this was the place for us. Having two brides wasn’t an issue; combining British, Asian and Spanish cultures - wasn't an issue; having brides enter together – wasn’t an issue. Nothing was an issue. At Davenport House, we got it all – a picturesque venue and the best team of staff anyone could ever wish for. All our external suppliers have commented what a fantastic venue you are. All out guests have said that the service and attention to detail was second to none. The thoughtful touches like hiring a Spanish speaking waiter for the table which spoke very little English ensured that everyone felt welcomed. Guests with dietary requirements didn't feel they got a second rate meal or they were an afterthought - the food for all throughout the day was exceptional. The rooms / cottages where our guests and we stayed, spotless and comfortable. The thought behind adding some cheese and Spanish ham to the morning breakfast - so sweet!

Special shout out to Megan - wedding planner extraordinaire who kept in touch throughout the planning process and was exceptional on the day. Ian who worked tirelessly to ensure the day ran smoothly and the food was perfect, Charley who was also in charge of one bride and ensuring that everything was on point. All the staff were fantastic - polite, professional and personal.

Everyone keeps saying that this was the best wedding they have ever attended and that’s a lot of weddings between people! When we asked why, they say things like ‘the venue’, ‘the staff’, but it all came back to the inclusivity, love & joy that they felt – and you were all a part of that.

Davenport House is a stunning venue made even better by those who work there. If you want the whole package on your wedding day, we strongly recommend you book them.

Thank you to the entire Davenport House team.

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!

Most incredible Venue

Without doubt the best day of our lives. From start to finish, Davenport has exceeded expectations. From the very first impression of the venue during the open day, the incredible food tasting evening, all the way through to the day itself, including the support and preparation leading up to it. It was really important to us to pick a venue that not only ticked the fairytale box, but also come with the complete support of a wedding planner, due to our busy jobs. We were lucky enough to have Charley as ours. She really took the time to listen and get to know us, to ensure the day was tailored to exactly what we wanted. We even had our own cocktail designed, which went down an absolute storm on the day! She considered every little detail, constantly putting our minds at ease, which made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. Honestly the day couldn’t have gone smoother, any anxiety or stress faded immediately as soon as we got to the venue. It was simply perfect. So many of our guests were complimentary of just how beautiful the venue is and just how well organised the day was, and that is the perfect way to summarise Davenport. Any prospective couples thinking of selecting Davenport as their venue, hesitate no further. It will be a day you never knew was possible! We cannot thank you enough Charley and the Davenport team, if only we could live the day over and over again

Andy and Charlotte Kissane 16/04/2022

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

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!

Our incredible wedding ❤️

We just got married here ❤️

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 🥰

The whole day was SPECTACULAR!!! 💍🎉

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 🥰

Davenport House - where dreams are made reality ❤️

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’t 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
