Capesthorne Hall is a beautiful family-owned stately home which can be your exclusive venue for your dream wedding day. Set in 100 acres of the beautiful picturesque Cheshire countryside, this truly unique wedding venue overlooks three lakes and stunning formal gardens.

The team at Capesthorne Hall are dedicated to making sure your wedding day is as relaxed and special as you always hoped it would be.

As every wedding is different, and every couple wants their day to be uniquely special, we are happy to be flexible and work around your requests.

We aim to give you a truly attentive service, with help and advice always on hand. It is our attention to detail that helps make Capesthorne Hall one of the most desirable wedding venues in Cheshire.
Your wedding would commence in the elegant Drawing Room with its magnificent chandeliers and Italian paintings. We are also licensed to host civil ceremonies in a variety of locations in the grounds, including our outdoor Gazebo which borders the stunning lake.

Drinks receptions take place in the Saloon which opens out onto the Terrace leading to the expansive West Lawn. Here you can enjoy the views with your guests.

After the ceremony and drinks reception, guests can enjoy the warm and intimate atmosphere of the Queen Anne Room for the wedding breakfast. Capacity for formal dining in this room is 80.

The informal Lakeside Wing, overlooking the beautiful lakes and gardens, provides a more contemporary setting for your evening reception. Capacity for your evening entertainment is 180 in the Lakeside Wing.

The Lakeside Wing can also be used for larger wedding ceremonies and wedding breakfasts, with capacity for up to 160 guests for formal dining. It is south facing and has wonderful elevated views over the Lake and formal gardens. Guests can enjoy lawn games here when the weather is fine.

The Milanese gates opposite the Chapel open up to the gravel pathway which is bordered by colourful perennials. This path leads to the Lakeside Gazebo, a stunning location for outdoor weddings and romantic photographs.

Capesthorne’s extensive gardens and lawns lend themselves to marquee weddings for larger numbers of guests. These beautiful gardens are unrivalled by any other Cheshire wedding venue.

As you can imagine the week leading up to our special day has been one of the most incredibly stressful and worrying times. Every single day felt like a battle and you were always so helpful, positive and kind.

Against all odds you made this happen and we could see the determination and belief from all of you to let us have our Wedding day. We had the most incredible day and it was a dream come true! Words cannot put into meaning how thankful we are of everything you have done for us and we will forever hold Capesthorne Hall close to our hearts. It was an incredible day and nobody will forget it.

The Most Incredible Day
A huge thank you to all the staff at Capesthorne on Saturday and to all of you who helped in the run up to the big day.

We had the most incredible day and everyone was blown away by the beauty of Capesthorne, thank you for ordering the sun! Nothing was too much trouble on the day and the guests were looked after wonderfully.

Your accommodation is amazing, we could have stayed all week and to receive such a thoughtful card & gift from you all was such a lovely sentiment.

An Amazing Venue
From the moment we first met the fantastic team at Capesthorne and heard about all the options for really personalising our wedding, we knew that it was the venue for us.

I would absolutely recommend Capesthorne Hall to the other couples, it’s such an amazing venue. We loved that you can have your wedding breakfast in the house, as we found that there aren’t many stately homes which offer this option.

Eternally Grateful
We are eternally grateful to the fab team at Capesthorne Hall for making our wedding day so special and memorable.

The ladies at Capesthorne Hall are so lovely and everything you could wish for in a wedding co-ordinator. They certainly know their stuff and we trusted them 100% with organising our special day. They are totally on the ball and organise every single detail perfectly, but with minimum fuss. They are professional yet really friendly, down to earth and put you at ease. The perfect combination for a bride to be :-).
Nothing was too much trouble and the entire experience from start to finish is one that we will never forget
