This stunning palace gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy peace and privacy, authentic architecture and contemporary style, and elegant reception spaces and exquisite gardens, all within a fantastic location in the heart of Chester. With ancient Roman ruins behind and uninterrupted views of the river in front, it’s safe to say that Old Palace Chester’s city-centre position is second to none.
Start your day in the inviting Morning Room, positioned above the River Room and overlooking the venue entrance so you can see your guests arrive as you put the finishing touches to your look. The River Room at Old Palace Chester is just a few steps from the Morning Room and boasts a long aisle and almost cathedral-like atmosphere that suit the occasion perfectly. For a grand entrance, how about arriving by boat along the River Dee? Wander along the riverfront and through the private gardens before saying ‘I do’ in the River Room.
Enjoy canapés and cocktails on the Garden Terrace, elevated above the riverfront, and take in the wonderful views or make full use of the lovingly restored reception rooms at the front of the palace. When it comes to your wedding breakfast, the expert on-site catering team will make sure it is an unforgettable affair. The grandeur and elegance of the Ballroom make it a fitting location for a mouth-watering meal with your nearest and dearest.
As your wedding day winds down, it’s time to enjoy another enchanting part of this Cheshire wedding venue. The Palace Suite is simply breathtaking. It’s spacious, stylish and luxurious and offers glorious views over the river to help you relax and unwind after all the festivities. Your guests won’t miss out either, with a number of suites throughout the house that offer the utmost comfort. You can carry on the celebrations and reminisce about your special day over breakfast in the morning too for the perfect end to the perfect wedding.
