I'd recommend Capesthorne as a wedding venue for so many reasons, our guests still talk about how beautiful our wedding day was a year later
As soon as my now-husband proposed in early 2018 we dived into wedding venue hunting, but I'm incredibly picky and dismissed almost every venue I saw online until I came across Capesthorne Hall! We wanted an exclusive venue in Cheshire within easy access of Manchester - tick, a chapel for our Persian ceremony- tick, a sense of history and a real 'wow factor' and majestic architecture - tick, a stunning and intimate ceremony room and a modern part of the venue for the reception with beautiful grounds - tick!!! As soon as we visited this venue we knew we'd found 'the one' and it was the only one we saw. The Capesthorne team, in particular Lynn Newton who was our main liaison contact, were absolutely fantastic and provided us with flexible options for how we could use the space on the big day. Lynn answered all our questions quickly and was always reassuring and positive! I'd recommend Capesthorne as a wedding venue for so many reasons, our guests still talk about how beautiful our wedding day was a year later and we have so many wonderful memories of Capesthorne. The venue is well worth the cost (especially when you consider many non-exclusive venues are not much cheaper - it's really a no-brainer!!), and although our wedding took place before the new accommodation was finished, it's in close proximity to several lovely hotels and train stations so also convenient for guests and the wedding party. The venue team also has excellent relationships with all the top wedding suppliers in Cheshire, which just made everything easy and reassuring when booking these (that they would have everything set up correctly on the day etc with no logistics issues - and this was the case with everything running extremely smoothly on the day). I would also definitely recommend using Barretts Catering as they are one of Capesthorne's named catering suppliers and were fantastic value, extremely accommodating in creating our perfect Persian inspired menu and the food was wonderful. All in all, I could not recommend Capesthorne Hall any more highly - 5 big stars from us!
