Thank you so much for everything to do with our wedding. You made the day run smoothly from start to finish. We honestly had the best day and the venue and weather made it. Thank you for being there all day and ironing out any niggles. Everyone said how beautiful the Hall was.

Simply Perfect Dream venue with top tier service to match
Choosing a venue is highly subjective - everyone has their own taste. We were looking for something classically English - a venue that was not only visually stunning but steeped in heritage. Capesthorne Hall is a wonderful example of this - frankly nothing in the area comes close. The true quality of Capesthorne Hall goes far beyond the wonderful aesthetics. We had a wedding coordinator who was highly dedicated, genuine, and capable. Both in preparation for the wedding, and on the day itself, all of the Hall staff were incredibly professional and personable - we could not have asked for better service. All of our guests have remarked how spectacular the venue was - but even more importantly that they were made to feel very welcome and safe (given the context of COVID). Indeed, the team showed great flexibility and understanding throughout the entire process - such compassion meant so much to us when rearranging our date due to the pandemic. We simply could not recommend Capesthorne Hall highly enough.

Wedfest 2021

26th September 2021
Capesthorne Hall will be transformed into a wedding festival! There’ll be huge sail cloth tents, chill out areas, street food vendors and much more. Free entry for brides and their bridal party.
