Capesthorne is one of the most wonderful unique wedding venues in Cheshire, but don’t just take our word for it….

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!

Hannah & Bradley – June 2023

Lynn, thank you so much for everything, right from our very first visit all the way through to the day itself! Nothing was ever too much trouble and we truly appreciate every little thing! We feel so lucky to have got married at the beautiful Capesthorne Hall and the stunning grounds.

The day was perfect and that’s largely down to you all, working away tirelessly in the background. We truly had the best day!

Polly & Andrew – Sept 2022

From when we first saw Capesthorne Hall, we fell in love with it. It is the most beautiful place and we knew it would be perfect for our wedding. Lynn was incredible from the moment we met her.

Everything from organising times we could see the venue, being a friendly voice on the phone, advising us about all things wedding to accommodating our requests, nothing was too much trouble. Leading up to the wedding, our wedding coordinator was extremely organised which makes a brides life so much easier!

The attention to detail with everything was immaculate. Our wedding day ran so smoothly and that was largely down to the Capesthorne staff. Such professional and friendly people who are so lovely!

Joanna & Robert – July 2022

I just wanted to reiterate in writing what an amazing and fantastic job you have done Lucy, always being patient and reassuring when any of us had called in the lead up to the wedding , and in particular on the actual day of the wedding being present discreetly in the background ensuring that everything was running smoothly.

Everyone had the most fantastic time including the day before when the couple’s close friends were able to stay at the hub.

The little touches like the little gift left for them by the owners, and allowing the guests to wander round the great hall looking at the rooms upstairs. The Dutch guests in particular were so impressed with it and the history.

Once again thank you so much.

Harriet & Ferenc – July 2022 (Review by Mother of the Bride)

Having our wedding at Capesthorne Hall was like a dream come true for Mark and I. It was truly a spectacular day and we couldn’t fault the staff who were so attentive from start to finish.

Lucy was so professional from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. We were made to feel very special and her attention to detail and communication was second to none. All the staff are very warm and welcoming and I cannot recommend the beautiful hall enough!

Lizette & Mark – June 2022

From our lockdown drives driving past Capethorne Hall we knew it was our dream venue, we fell in love with it we didn’t even view any other venues we just knew it was everything we wanted and more.

Kath and Beth were always there every step of the way answering all of our questions. Everything before and on the day was organised flawlessly, nothing was too much trouble.

We knew we wanted an autumnal wedding and the scenery of the oranges and greens was exactly what we hoped for. Our family and friends even now talk about how but of a stunning venue it was. We wish we could relive the day all over again. Thank you so much Capethorne Hall!

Anne-Marie & Luke – October 2022

Thank you so so much for such a beautiful day! You were all so helpful and amazing. Our day was perfect and some guests even said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. All the staff were just fantastic and we are forever grateful to you all.

We will always remember this day and it really couldn’t have happened without you and the team.

Nisha & Matthew – June 2022

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Lynn and all the staff from Haris and I! We had such a lovely time on our wedding and it couldn’t have gone any better.

Thank you for all your help before and during the wedding and for making things so efficient and easy for us.

Aliza & Haris – March 2022

Thank you so much for making our day so perfect and magical.

We had the best day ever and loved every minute. You really did go above and beyond, I don’t think we could have done it without you.

You’re brilliant at your job and such a lovely person too.

Lizzie & Tom – April 2023

Thank you so much to Kath for an absolutely beautiful day!

We had an amazing time with all our family and loved ones and everyone commented on how stunning the venue was.

Feeling very happy indeed, so thank you for making sure everything ran so smoothly on the day.

Stephanie & Zach – May 2022

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!

Alice & Will – May 2023

It was such a great night, we all had an absolutely brilliant time. This was largely due to the amazing service we got from Kath and the team, friendly, professional and helpful at every stage.

Honestly you really did an outstanding job, and it also demonstrated to us what a great space it is for that kind of party.

Johnny & Lucy – Nov 2021 (Engagement Party)

Thank you so much for helping us have the best Wedding Day! It was absolutely worth the wait and you made sure everything went perfectly.

Thank you for making all the postponements so easy! All of our friends and family adored the venue and many have been back since the wedding for wreath-making and to visit.

You are all just so amazing!

Alicia & James – Oct 2021

Just a huge thank you to all the staff at the venue and yourself for helping us with our day. It was absolutely perfect, even the rainy weather!!!

From start to finish you have been so so helpful and I can’t thank you enough. Our gift from you all was perfect and something we will cherish forever.

Grace & Dan – Oct 2021

Beautiful venue. My daughter has just been married in the Lakeside. The whole organisation exudes an air of friendliness, calm and efficiency. It is hard to imagine how things could have been better.

Everyone, and I mean everyone, commented on the outstanding location and how welcome we were all made to feel.

Big handy hint: If you have people traveling from afar, consider using the lodges . They are comfortable, quiet , clean and well equipped.

There is also a communal kitchen block, with all mod cons, with an outside terrace overlooking the lake, where everyone can meet up and chill out prior to the big day.

If you are planning either a wedding or other event, this place should be on your list.

Alice & Thomas – Aug 2021 (Review by bride’s father)

We have just returned from a fabulous time on honeymoon and catching up on all the things that we did not get time to do before we went away and just wanted to say a huge thank you to Lynn and your team for making our day so perfect.

We feel very special to have had the opportunity of having our wedding take place at such a special house and so please pass on our very sincere thanks to all.

Sandra & Graham – Sept 2022

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. Our Wedding Coordinator, Lynn 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.
