Capesthorne Hall

Wedding Venue

A typical wedding would commence in the elegant Drawing Room with its magnificent chandeliers and Italian paintings. Capesthorne Hall is also licensed to host civil ceremonies in a variety of locations in the grounds, including the outdoor Gazebo which borders the stunning lake.

Drinks receptions take place in the Saloon which opens out onto the Terrace leading to the expansive West Lawn with views across the adjacent fields.

After the ceremony and drinks reception, guests can enjoy the warm and intimate atmosphere of the Queen Anne Room for the wedding breakfast. Capacity for formal dining in this room is 80.

The informal Lakeside Wing, overlooking the beautiful lakes and gardens, provides a more contemporary setting for the evening reception wth capacity for up to 180. 

The Lakeside Wing can also be used for larger wedding ceremonies and wedding breakfasts, with capacity for up to 160 guests for formal dining. It is south facing and has wonderful elevated views over the Lake and formal gardens.  Guests can enjoy lawn games here when the weather is fine.

The Milanese gates opposite the Chapel open up to the gravel pathway which is bordered by colourful perennials.  This path leads to the Lakeside Gazebo, a stunning location for outdoor weddings and romantic photographs.

Capesthorne’s extensive gardens and lawns lend themselves to marquee weddings for larger numbers of guests. 

On-site accommodation is available to book and includes South Tower cottage, Lakeside cottage and six lodges. The cottages sleep four/six guests and the lodges sleep two guests each.
