We have just returned from a fabulous time on honeymoon and catching up on all the things that we did not get time to do before we went away and just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for making our day so perfect. We feel very special to have had the opportunity of having our wedding take place at such a special house and so please pass on our very sincere thanks to all.‘

We truly had the best day
Thank you so much for everything, right from our very first visit all the way through to the day itself! Nothing was ever too much trouble and we truly appreciate every little thing! We feel so lucky to have got married at the beautiful Capesthorne Hall and the stunning grounds. The day was perfect and that’s largely down to you all, working away tirelessly in the background. We truly had the best day.

Everyone had the most fantastic time
I just wanted to reiterate in writing what an amazing and fantastic job you have done, always being patient and reassuring when any of us had called in the lead up to the wedding , and in particular on the actual day of the wedding being present discreetly in the background ensuring that everything was running smoothly. Everyone had the most fantastic time including the day before when the couple’s close friends were able to stay at the hub. The little touches like the little gift left for them by the owners, and allowing the guests to wander round the great hall looking at the rooms upstairs. The Dutch guests in particular were so impressed with it and the history Once again thank you so much.

The most beautiful place
From when we first saw Capesthorne Hall, we fell in love with it. It is the most beautiful place and we knew it would be perfect for our wedding. Our wedding coordinator was incredible from the moment we met her. Everything from organising times we could see the venue, being a friendly voice on the phone, advising us about all things wedding to accommodating our requests, nothing was too much trouble. Leading up to the wedding, our wedding coordinator was extremely organised which makes a brides life so much easier! The attention to detail with everything was immaculate. Our wedding day ran so smoothly and that was largely down to the Capesthorne staff. Such professional and friendly people who are so lovely!

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day as perfect as we could have hoped for! From start to finish nothing was too much trouble and although the lead up to it was a rocky road with covid regs changing week to week you still made our dream possible. Your kindness and support helped settle my nerves and everybody had a fantastic day, from the venue to the accommodation it was everything and more. Huge thanks to all involved.

We were made to feel very special
Having our wedding at Capesthorne Hall was like a dream come true for Mark and I. It was truly a spectacular day and we couldn’t fault the staff who were so attentive from start to finish. Lucy the Wedding and Events Coordinator was so professional from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. We were made to feel very special and her attention to detail and communication was second to none. All the staff are very warm and welcoming and I cannot recommend the beautiful hall enough!
