There is always something charming about getting married in a historical building, giving you and your guests the chance to feel something like royalty for the day. Capesthorne Hall weddings are no different, and I want to shine a spotlight on this incredible 18th century country house in Cheshire and help you decide if it could be the perfect venue for you.
I am proud to be a recommended wedding planner at Capesthorne Hall, which is an example of one of the North of England’s truly picturesque gems. It is a family-owned stately home, which makes it feel more accessible than many former homes of royal families, but simultaneously gives an air of exclusivity. Capesthorne Hall weddings take place among the venue’s 100 acres located just 40 minutes outside of Manchester, meaning you get the most beautiful and secluded location for your celebrations while still being close to the vibrant hub of the North. With three lakes and pristine formal gardens, you won’t be short of spots for your wedding photos.
There are a few different options for your wedding at Capesthorne Hall, including marrying in the hall itself (within ornately decorated rooms), outdoor weddings by the lake or in the woodland, and blessings in their very own Georgian chapel. One of my favourite spots for your wedding here, however, is their Lakeside marquee.
It’s no secret I love a marquee wedding – that blank canvas on which we can unleash an explosion of creativity is so exciting – and you’ll find lots more advice and information about them on my blog. The marquee at Capesthorne Hall is special because it overlooks the formal gardens and lake, fitting up to 160 of your loved ones for your wedding dinner and 180 for the party. It is the perfect location to host multicultural weddings, bringing together two families and blending cultures and lifestyles against a serene backdrop.
There is also accommodation available to book on-site at Capesthorne Hall, allowing you and your friends and family to extend the celebrations without leaving the property. Their luxury self-catering accommodation allows you to feel right at home at this magnificent venue, the perfect opportunity for both families to get to know one another even better.
If your eyes are lighting up at the thought of the possibilities for your Capesthorne Hall wedding, I’d love to hear from you! We can work together to create a celebration that authentically reflects you, whether that’s at this venue or another that is the perfect fit for you.
