Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Each wedding we have hosted has been special in their own way. My favourite type of wedding at the venue is always the relaxed, informal and down to earth affair. The true meaning of a wedding day is expressing your love to one another amongst friends and family and to see this happening in a relaxed setting where everyone is comfortable is heart warming.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
The venue is one of the biggest decisions of the wedding planning and it is so important that you get along and trust your wedding coordinator. I personally would visit the venue a few times before confirming a booking and meet the person responsible for coordinating your day as you will be trusting them to put your vision together to create the day you have been dreaming about for a long time.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
There has been so many but one of my favourites has to be seeing the love story from first date to the wedding day using pictures dotted around the venue. One of the more popular trends now are unique wedding hashtags and another of my favourites - the brides speech.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
The backdrop of the Cheshire plains, it doesn't matter what the season.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We have had celebrity guests but we pride ourselves on discretion and not needing to advertise that we can cater for all at The Chester Fields.
What’s your favourite canapé?
We love our local butchers at TCF and our glazed mini bangers or bangers in bacon have to be up there in the top three for me.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
We have our own Hog roast machine and it is very popular and has proven to be a great midnight snack served with homemade stuffing and apple sauce.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
There are so many, I couldn't choose. I am biased but I think the venue is breath taking.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
The team. Without the team we wouldn't have a business. Getting to work with people that are just as passionate as I am about the business is absolutely key.
