Lakeside Wedding

Photographed at Capesthorne Hall

With Summer just around the corner, here at Capesthorne Hall we have been getting excited about outdoor and lakeside weddings. At Capesthorne we try to cater to as broad a range of couples as possible, including the spaces you can get married in. Did you know that you can marry at the side of our stunning lake, situated to the rear of the house? For more details follow And whilst you’re thinking it over, here are 5 reasons to consider a lakeside wedding…

There is something magnificent about water that allows light to reflect and compliment any situation, no matter if there are clouds in the sky and not a hint of blue. What’s more is that the light becomes more magical as the sun sets and night falls.

Faultless Pictures

Here at Capesthorne you also have use of our 100 acres of picturesque gardens, parkland and surrounding lakes for all your wedding photographs. With that backdrop, a photograph barely needs a frame. The only problem is that the scenes are endless.

Special Altar

Ever see endless pictures of dreamy American outdoor weddings with a make-shift altar and just go weak at the knees? At Capesthorne Hall we have a magnificent gazebo (see pictured top centre and top right) from which your lakeside wedding would be conducted.

Lanterns and Fairy-lights

As dusk sets in, light a trail of lanterns or switch on the fairy-lights by the lakeside to utterly transform your dream wedding setting.


Our natural landscape is one of the rare blessing we behold on this earth and it has the power to establish memories that are never erased. It may feel like a risk to brave the great outdoors and have a lakeside wedding  in our British climate, but just tell your guests to bring an extra layer just in case, and we promise you won’t be disappointed.
