I have been fortunate enough to be a recommended cake supplier for Capesthorne Hall for many years. It is always an absolute delight to work in such beautiful and elegant surroundings and when the scenery is matched with a very professional team that works incredibly hard to make sure weddings run smoothly and efficiently it makes life for suppliers like me so much easier. I can't recommend this venue highly enough, anyone booking this beautiful stately home for their special day is in very good hands.

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.

Simply the best Venue!
ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VENUE ! When a Couple says their chosen venue is Capesthorne Hall I am so in Love and cannot wait to discuss their vision for flowers and dressing, be it in the Queen Anne Room or the Lakeside Suite, both are fabulous areas to create the most perfect Wedding. The outside areas are stunning too, the lake, Gardens and not forgetting the Chapel. My couples and their families are so over whelmed with the hospitality of Capesthorne Hall and the new accomodation is just perfect.
