Experience Weddings

Your wedding is one of the most important moments of your life. You want a significant celebration, something your guests won’t stop talking about. That’s why brides are looking for ways to make their wedding an experience, something different so it stands out from other weddings. Here are just some of the ways Capesthorne Hall is the perfect Cheshire venue for an experience wedding.


Capesthorne Hall is a stunning location and, thanks to our outdoor wedding licence, we can offer you a wedding ceremony like no other. You can choose from three outdoor locations, each with their own benefits.

The front courtyard offers the grandeur of the front of the hall, the Lakeside Gazebo commands a romantic view of the lake, and the Woodland Dome offers a magical, secluded setting for a back to nature wedding. Each of these locations offers you something that a church or registry office can’t. Imagine a wedding ceremony with a carpet of bluebells!


A wedding at Capesthorne Hall is a wedding with space for you to play because you have exclusive use of the formal gardens when you hire the venue. Here are a few ideas of what you can do within the grounds;

  • petting zoos
  • bird of prey displays
  • bouncy castles and other inflatables
  • magic displays
  • cocktail making lessons
  • silent disco
  • light shows

These are just a few ideas of the things you can do at the hall to make your wedding an experience never to be forgotten.


Capesthorne Hall is steeped in history and comes with an impressive list of film credits, including some dramatic moments in Coronation Street. The area of Capesthorne is mentioned in the Domesday survey as the “vill of Copestor” and the family who live there now are descendants of the original “Mesne lords of the vill”. There is history at Capesthorne, which is something overseas guests come to the UK for and that we can sometimes take for granted. You can use that history in your wedding theme for something truly spectacular.


Imagine waking up on your first day as a married couple to the grandeur of Capesthorne Hall. The sun rising over the lake, you can bask in the peace and tranquillity of the Cheshire countryside. With our recent accommodation additions, this option is available to you. You can stay in the South Tower cottage or in the Lakeside Village with your closest friends and family.

Or, if you fancy getting back to nature, we have the facilities for you and your guests to stay in our Caravan Park. That will be a unique experience only somewhere like Capesthorne can offer you.


Capesthorne Hall is grand, you can have parties of up to 160 guests. But that’s not a target. If there is a limited number of guests, because it’s not the numbers that matter but the people themselves, you can just use the venue for a much more intimate experience. During the colder months, we can light the fireplaces to create a comfortable, warm atmosphere you’ll never forget.

Whatever experience you want to create for your wedding, we can accommodate it. Contact us at the office so we can discuss making your dreams come true.

Don’t forget our Wedding Fair this Sunday between 11:00 and 2:00pm.
