Styling Your Stately Home Wedding

Styling Your Stately Home Wedding


The key to styling your stately home wedding venue is to create your own beautiful atmospheric setting whilst enhancing the unique character of the building itself.

Never underestimate the importance of lighting as it plays a big part in creating a special atmosphere.

Don’t waste the opportunity to wow your guests before they enter the venue for the evening celebration. It may be possible to light up the exterior of the building for that instant impact.

Many of our wedding couples here at Capesthorne have chosen this option.

We are partnered with Lightech Sound and Light Ltd who are one of the leading names in lighting and firework displays.




Interior rooms can be totally transformed by ambient lighting. Whether it be up-lighters around the edge of a room, or special effect lighting on the dance floor, you can create a truly magical atmosphere.



Lanterns are a very popular choice for wedding lighting, they can be lined up along the aisle or used as table decorations.

They can be included in floral displays or keep them simple with candles.

Please check with your wedding coordinator, as most stately home venues will ask that you use LED candles for safety.



Fairy Lights

Fairy lights can be used to create a romantic atmosphere in your stately home wedding venue.

They can be strung from the ceiling or used to create a wall of lights for an eye catching focal point.



Light up letters continue to be popular.

They can create a focal point as well as providing a perfect photo opportunity for you and your guests.



A firework display provides the ultimate finale to your wedding celebrations.

Some couples choose to use a firework display as a perfect moment to escape the reception without drawn out goodbyes!
