COVID-19 Update
Up to a 50% discount on 2021 weddings with low booking fee! We’ve heard some absolute horror stories during this pandemic. There have been many couples who were due to get married during these months of lock down where venues have refused to move dates and deposits have been lost. Some of these venues have had to go into receivership where in some cases they had been fully booked way into 2022. Most places charge an extortionate venue hire fee that can reach into several thousands of pounds. And this is before you’ve even looked at the menus and all the add-ons that are hidden in the small print. Weddings is something that The Chester Fields does really well and we throw the rule book out the window for every couple. We refuse to have a set menu price and set dishes that you have to choose from. Our head chef sits down with every couple and designs a menu especially for them. He’ll ask such questions as “what was the first meal you had together when you went out for dinner for the first time” and recreate it. What was the meal you had when he proposed in that fancy restaurant? No problem, we can recreate it. We treat every couple as though it really is their home and we love to think outside the box and take on any challenges that are thrown our way. It would be boring otherwise! If you want to get married in 2020 our challenge is that we’d like to speak to anyone who’s been let down by their chosen venue. We’d then like to look at what you’ve lost and come up with a plan where we can give you an even better experience for less than you would have paid initially including the losses you made. Even if you haven’t been let down and used this lock down period to get engaged, we would still like to take-on the same challenge. We are offering a considerable discount of up to 50% to these wedding couples and have availability on weekends in 2020. A booking fee of £50 will be required to secure your date. There’s no small print with us its very simple. Anything that your guests spend over the bar is deducted from your minimum spend charge. The more guests you have the less you spend. Although, if you have more of an intimate affair in mind, the building suits this incredibly also. Unlike any other venue we’ll go out of our way to make you spend less but guarantee to surprise and delight. Get in touch for a virtual tour!
Our welcoming converted barn is the perfect setting for any occasion. From cosy couple dining to bespoke weddings and big blow out celebrations.

An incredible wedding venue!
On Saturday 12th October, my partner and I got married and The Chester Fields was our chosen reception venue for 100 guests. From the moment we met Katie back in January 2019, we knew we were in safe hands. No ask was ever too much - my husband, in particular, appreciated Katie's clandestine efforts in planning his surprise fireworks display for the end of the night! The food menu was a bespoke creation by the wonderful Head Chef, Helder - and our guests have been raving about the quality of the food since. We've had a number of people tell us that it was the best wedding food they have ever had! The team at the The Chester Fields could not be faulted - their enthusiasm for our wedding was infectious and we cannot thank them enough for all they did to make our day special. Nuno, in particular, was so incredibly attentive to both us, and all of our guests, while also maintaining a great sense of humour which put us all at ease! We would not hesitate in recommending The Chester Fields for a quick bite, or a wedding reception for all of your loved ones. It really feels like every event is personal to Katie and the team - and it's this attitude which filters through their team and makes the whole experience so magical. While we are gutted the day itself is over, we can't wait to come back to visit the wonderful team at The Chester Fields - we owe them a lot!

Wedding reception
The Chesterfields made my wedding, they couldn't of done anymore. Every single member of staff were so helpful and couldn't of done more for me and my guests. The food was amazing couldn't fault anything and Katie who was my wedding organiser sorted everything she made it so stress free. They all made my day.

Amazing wedding venue!
We had the Chesterfields as our wedding venue last week. All I can say is, it was the best day of our lives and it couldn't have ran any better. From the moment we met Katie to discuss we knew that it was the place for us. Katie was brilliant at accommodating everything we wanted as was Helder the chef. During the run up to the big day getting extremely stressed Katie was always there on hand and kept me sane. The day ran perfect with plenty of staff on hand and the food was amazing so I really didn't need to stress. The bar was always full but the guests never had a wait. Plenty of guests have commented on the gorgeous food and friendly staff. If you're looking for something more chilled and not your typical 'hotel' wedding, the Chesterfields definitely won't disappoint you. Thank you to all the staff for making it a day we will never forget!

The perfect wedding venue
Starting off as where we had our first date 10 years ago this seemed like the perfect venue and setting to host our wedding which suited us before we had even started the discussions with The Chesterfields team. Meeting Katie and head chef Helder to design our own menu of our favourite dishes, having a taster and picking our wines were just afew of the finer details that instilled our trust completely in the team. From arriving at The Chesterfields on the day our guests could not have been looked after anymore to us leaving at the end of the night each one of the team were so attentive and have been highly complimented by all of our guests. The food and drink exceeded our expectations! Nothing was too much trouble in the lead up and having an idea of decorations Katie really saw our vision and could not have executed more perfectly, she completely took any stress out of the day and had thought of everything. Do not think twice about booking your wedding at The Chesterfields!x Thank you! Becky & John

Magical wedding
Just a big thank's to Katie , Nuno and all the team at the Chesterfields for making our daughters wedding day one to remember. It was a Harry Potter theme and the cooperation and support the family needed to host our event was provided at this perfect location and we were never left to be in doubt about our choice. This was a project over twelve months in the planning and Katie and here team were there to help and support and draw down on their personal experience of how the perfect wedding should go and it was all that . Top mentions must go to quality of the food and drinks and the overall package that was put together for us and the professionalism of all involved. If you are thinking of hiring somewhere for your top day we can strongly recommend the Chesterfields and the great young team that worked with us and made the day what it was.

Magical wedding provided The Chester Fields
Well, what can I say. I had the most magical wedding I could ever have hoped for! All provided by the staff at the Chester fields. The planning that Katie and nuno did for myself and my partner was just astounding. I approached Katie about having a harry potter themed wedding after party, thinking it was going to be a small affair. Katie was not at all concerned with the amount of guests I needed to cater for as we have very big families. 120 guests and more to come at night and a theme now that is a feat in itself! But the staff at the Chester fields were absolutely amazing! From start of the planning I knew Katie was on top of it, asking questions and keeping contact on a regular basis to put me at my ease, easily acessable if i needed to know anything. Organising food was going to be a nightmare I thought. Not a problem! The chef and Katie were completely on board with the theme and came up with some fabulous ideas! We had LOTS of props and decorations due to the theme, but this was not a problem for them at all. When I walked into the Chester fields after our wedding I was completely and utterly blown away, they had transformed the place into hogwarts!!! The food was to die for! The fact it was mass catered, you would think the food would be a little lack luster but oh my gosh! It was stunning! We had a hog roast with sides of vegetables which were all themed to Harry potter it was just amazing! The staff on the night were fantastic! Nothing was a big deal, it was just everything I wanted. Both Katie and nuno were full of life and so energetic with staff which was great to see and checked up on us every so often to see if we were happy or needed anything I will be recommending the Chester fields as a wedding venue for everyone and anyone! Thank you so so SO much for making our day completely out of this world!

FAQ
(10)

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.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, whimsical, rustic, personal, homely

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.
