Testimonials For Capesthorne Hall

The most MAGICAL wedding day MARCH, 2024

We wanted to thank everyone at Capesthorne Hall for giving us the most 'MAGICAL' wedding day and going above and beyond. We couldn't have done it without you! Thanks for putting up with all our needs and requests! We hope you enjoyed the British-Indian-Sundonese fusion! Sincere thanks.

Adela & Azhar (Oct 2023)

A truly magical venue!JUNE, 2023

We would definitely recommend Capesthorne Hall to any of our friends and family for their wedding venue! It’s the perfect setting for any size of wedding party and you can easily make it your own. We had around 100 guests and used both the main hall and the lakeside suite on the day of our wedding, which offered the mix of the impressive stately hall to wow our guests on arrival with welcome drinks and canapés, then the bright and modern wedding breakfast and dancing location to continue the celebrations into the evening. Lucy and the team were amazing at coordinating our day. Lucy was our main point of contact, she was so lovely, professional and very organised. She made everything run so smoothly in the run up to the big day and on the day itself. Our wedding party also stayed in the on site accommodation, which is beautifully decorated and spacious. Our family were very impressed and it was so nice to all wake up the day after and have breakfast together while looking out onto the stunning lake and gardens. It was a truly magical venue!

Hannah & Bradley (June 2023)

We would 5* recommend Capesthorne HallMAY, 2023

We would 5* recommend Capesthorne Hall as a wedding venue. When my husband and I first visited we knew this was the venue for us. We loved the mix of the stately hall and more modern Lakeside Wing. The grounds are stunning and there are so many great spots for photos! The events team were fabulous and know exactly what they are doing. We initially met Lucy and later Lynn, both were lovely and very communicative. You could tell the team are very experienced at coordinating weddings and we felt very relaxed during the run up and on the big day itself. They really do go above and beyond and think of everything. We also used the on-site accommodation which is done up to a high standard and reasonably priced. Our guests loved staying there and it was great to sit by the lake and debrief with everyone in the morning. Thank you so much to the whole team!

Alice & Will (May 2023)
