    Breathtaking venue and amazing staff

    I’ve had the pleasure of attending a number of weddings at Dorfold. The warmth and hospitality of the team are second to none. They can’t do enough for you, and treat every wedding with such personal and individual attention to detail.
    The grounds are just breathtaking, with so many areas to explore. One of the personal highlights is the gorgeous purpose designed ‘dressing room’ for the bridal party. It’s absolutely perfect for getting the bridal party ready, whilst over looking the grounds.
    I cannot recommend enough

    Dorfold Hall's reply:

    Thank you Phoebe for your kind words. We equally always welcome having you with us at Dorfold! Your ability to make our brides in particular feel at ease the morning of the wedding is uncanny!

    Beautiful venue and fabulous staff

    Dorfold Hall has a stunning old house juxtaposed against new build reception facilities that are accommodating, flexible and opulent. We were made to feel exceptionally welcome, guided through our planning process and had an absolutely wonderful weekend. Zoe is a fantastic organiser and Ceska who is new to the team also did a fabulous job over the entire weekend.

    Dorfold Hall's reply:

    Thank you for such a wonderful review Holly and Jez! I have loved working with you in the planning of your wedding. The day you put together had so many personal elements that were all clearly well thought out and meant a lot to you both. In turn you ensured each and every single guest had a splendid and fun day. You've been such a joy to work with and I am thrilled that you enjoyed your weekend at Dorfold so much.

    Gorgeous Cheshire Venue with fabulous event spaces

    I planned a wedding at Dorfold Hall last summer for a couple who wished to marry in Cheshire in a venue with a beautiful outdoor setting. I am a wedding planner and it was clear to me that Dorfold would tick all of my couple's boxes. A gorgeous historic property with newly built modern, contemporary event spaces, spectacular gardens and stunning views. It was the first venue I visited with my couple and they booked!
    From then on the planning journey - working with the event team at Dorfold - was a dream. They could not have been more helpful, professional and lovely to work with.
    Now, I just can't wait to go back there to plan another wedding.

    Thank you Michelle. We equally enjoyed our collaboration together, to create a truly beautiful day for her couple. Her approach to planning was meticulous and careful, which aligns with our approach to planning. Making the relationship a match made in heaven!... we look forward to working together again.

    Absolutely fabulous!

    Dorfold Hall is the most fabulous venue with the most incredible team, We could not have asked for a better setting for our wedding day, every part of Dorforld is sublime and gives you the feels as soon as you drive down the beautifully grand, long driveway. Apart from the obvious beauty of the venue, they have perfectly combined the classic with the modern which really made it our first choice. The team are what make this venue head and shoulders above the rest though, Candice, Jen and Ceri could not have done more for us leading up to the big day and on the day itself, they made the whole day run effortlessly and all with beaming smiles, nothing was too much trouble and they made our wedding feel like the most special day in the world (although they do a million weddings it was like ours was the only one!). Thank you all so, so much!

    Dorfold Hall's reply:

    Hi Lindsay,

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and Dan in the run up to your big day and we were truly honoured that you picked our venue as your host.

    We hope you are both enjoying married life so far and hope to see you both again soon!

    Best wishes,

    Ceri

    Exquisite Cheshire Wedding Venue

    Set in the most beautiful rolling Cheshire countryside, Dorfold Hall truly is a dream come true. The attention to detail, the architecture and the whole vibe is loaded with style and refinement, yet relaxed and individual.
    They know how to bring a team of suppliers together to provide the best day for the couples who choose Dorfold for their wedding.
    A pleasure to work with each time we provide flowers in this dream venue.

    Our attention to detail together with creating an elegant backdrop with incomparable architecture both historical and contemporary makes for a carefully curated experience... having our suppliers appreciate and understand how we have evolved and continue to aspire to evolve means everything.

    Dream venue, dream team!

    I have DJed at Dorfold on many occasions now and it’s one of my absolute favourites. The staff are fantastic, the set up is top quality and I’ve never had any problems with sound here. It’s been recently refurbished with a perfectly kitted out room to host a top wedding in. It’s absolutely stunning inside and out - an absolute must see if you’re looking for a high quality wedding venue 🙌🏽🙌🏽 Plenty of 22/23 weddings here which I can’t wait to be part of 🙌🏽🙌🏽

    Dorfold Hall's reply:

    Your enthusiasm is infectious! We use a bespoke sound system (Funktion One) tailored to provide the best sound experience for our musicians and guests.
    See you very soon.

    The only reason i'd get married again!

    Dorfold Hall is like stepping into a dream. Beautiful scenery, architecture and formal gardens run by Candice and Charles and their team. Nothing is ever too much trouble. If I were to get married again Dorfold Hall would where I would do it.

    A truly memorable wedding

    From first visiting Dorfold we fell in love with the venue . We were not disappointed.The professional way it was run with the personal touch was faultless. Catherine Skaites’ food was memorable.Her attention to detail was superb. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone working to create such a wonderful occasion. You could completely relax knowing the standard was exemplary at all times. I could not recommend this venue more highly. I did not want the day to end.!

    They say they can deliver the dream and they reall

    When we first met Candice and Charles in 2016 and saw how beautiful Dorfold Hall was, we knew straight away it was the perfect venue for us. We watched over time as their vision for the Hall turned into such a wonderful reality and became something really special. Their dedication to and passion for the hall, and their home, really shone through. They were fantastic through our wedding planning and really created the feeling that our wedding was so special and unique.
    When it came to our wedding weekend in July, everything was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble, from a lovely dinner the evening before to the big day itself, we could really rely on Emmylou and the team with their attention to detail and precision planning.
    We truly had the most amazing wedding day at Dorfold and we can't thank them enough. They say they can deliver the dream and they really did!

    We Fell In love With Dorfold

    We fell in love with Dorfold Hall the moment we drove in through the gates for the first time on the day we came to look around.

    As a venue it is simply stunning, with so many gorgeous spots for guests to wander and opportunities for gorgeous wedding photos.

    Our children too had an amazing time playing in the grounds on the day, the ability to close the gate of the walled garden was perfect as if meant the very small ones couldn’t run off!

    We chose to hold our ceremony at Dorfold too and although the weather didn’t let us have our planned outdoor ceremony, the gorgeous coach house provided a perfect location for our vows.

    Candice and Emmylou couldn’t have been more helpful in the initial planning stages with suggestions for suppliers, through to the last minute preparations and on the day itself. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure our day ran seamlessly.

    We stayed at Dorfold on our wedding night in the fabulous bridal suite. A perfect end to a perfect day.
