Entertaining Your Guests

The busiest person on your wedding day is you. There will be times when you must leave your guests to their own devices. How do you take care of people while you’re engaged elsewhere other than with canapes and drinks? Here are some ideas for entertaining your guests . . 

Disposable Cameras

This is a great idea. While you are having your pictures taken around Capesthorne’s stunning gardens and rooms, your guests are starting the party without you. So you don’t miss a moment, you can provide your guests with disposable cameras. They can use them right through the day and into the night. You’ll love discovering what they got up to while you were elsewhere.


A good magician will keep everyone enthralled, wondering how they accomplished their magical feats. They will ensure your wedding is one still talked about for many years to come for all the right reasons.


Everyone loves music. Here at Capesthorne, we have a grand piano which can be used before your wedding breakfast. Or you could choose a different instrument to suit your tastes. From harpist to two-piece band, we have the space to accommodate whatever you want, and your guests will appreciate them.

Lawn Games

Capesthorne Hall has large lawns perfect for games. Maybe you know someone with a giant Jenga set, or outdoor snakes and ladders, or even croquet. If you bring them along, we can set them up and everyone can enjoy the gardens.

Petting Zoo

Why not do something totally different and have a petting zoo. Capesthorne Hall has plenty of space to set one up. Some company’s let you decide which animals to bring from their collection, so you can make sure you see your favourite.


Those are just a few ideas. There are so many I could go on; bouncy castles, treasure hunts, bird of prey displays. Whatever you have in mind for entertainment for your big day, just contact us. We will work with you to make it happen.
