An idyllic setting for a fairy tale wedding, Capesthorne Hall is set within more than 100 acres of picturesque Cheshire parkland, gardens, lakes and woods, providing a romantic backdrop like no other. Approached by a sweeping driveway, its entrance leads to an impressive courtyard where guests will be charmed by the Jacobean-style Hall’s grand facade, setting the tone for the celebrations to come.
As a unique venue where old meets new, Capesthorne Hall is able to offer its couples a choice of settings for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and reception, with options varying from the characterful Hall to the contemporary Lakeside Wing and beautiful outdoor locations too.
The recently refurbished Lakeside Wing is a winning choice for couples who seek a neutral, light and stylish backdrop to their big day proceedings. Featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the lakeside gardens, beautiful starlit marquee ceiling and limed oak flooring, it provides a choice of beautiful contemporary spaces in the Bromley Room, Garden Room and Lakeside Room for ceremonies and receptions.
In addition to an abundance of stunning photography opportunities, Capesthorne’s spectacular grounds can also offer the dream setting for elegant outdoor ceremonies and celebrations, with The Lakeside Gazebo, Courtyard and Woodland Dome all truly breath-taking locations for couples to say their vows. The Hall’s extensive gardens and lawns can then cater for marquee receptions in the open-air and allows for a larger number of guests.
To the South West of the Hall lies a beautiful Georgian Chapel where a blessing can be conducted following a civil ceremony. Located a short walk from the Hall and the lake, the Chapel is set in its own private walled gardens. The ornate building provides a serene and intimate location for a more spiritual way of couples recognising their commitment to one another in a simple service, witnessed by family and friends.
Available from June 2019, Capesthorne Hall is adding to its existing South Tower cottage accommodation with its new Lakeside Village. The ‘hidden’ development will consist of The Lakeside Cottage and six luxury lodges, with timber-clad exteriors and ‘living roofs’, plus The Potting Shed, a communal, fully-fitted kitchen and dining area where guests can meet post-wedding for a relaxing group breakfast while taking in the beautiful rural views. Aptly named after trees Oak, Cedar, Beech, Holly, Birch and Willow, each lodge will be furnished to a high standard, complete with king-size bed, bathroom and comfortable seating area.
The team at Capesthorne Hall is dedicated to making sure that every wedding is truly unique and special. With exceptional attention to detail, its couples can be assured of truly attentive service, with help and advice on hand throughout the wedding planning journey. All couples
