A deposit of 50% of the venue hire fee is required to secure your booking. The balance is due for payment 6 months prior to your wedding date. Payments can be made by BAC's, Debit or Credit card. For your civil ceremony you book and pay for this directly with Cheshire East registrars.
Catering is arranged with our exclusive caterers "Barretts Event Caterers". They will quote you for all food and drink to be provided during your day. This includes drinks & canapes during your photography, wedding breakfast food and wine, evening food and bar provision. You can download their brochure on the main weddings page.
We only hold 1 wedding at our venue per day, giving complete exclusivity of the Hall, Olympia, Courtyard and Tea Lawn for you and your guests. The gardens will be open to general visitors but we will section off the Hall and Tea Lawn to ensure this area is just for you. We may have events happening across the park but would not envisage these having any impact on your day.
In addition to Chapel House (which is included in the venue hire fee for your wedding night) we also have 3 more cottages offering accommodation for up to 24 guests. These are all situated within a private courtyard on the estate, only minutes walk from the Hall. Ask our event team for availability and pricing.
We will reserve a dedicated parking area for your guests, and place vehicular signage directing them to the correct space. Our hospitality team will welcome your guests and ensure they are heading the right way. There is no charge for wedding guest parking.
Candles are absolutely fine but please make sure they are in proper holders. We also allow sparklers if you want to add some twinkles to the evening but due to having lots of animals across the estate we say no to fireworks or Chinese lanterns. Confetti is absolutely fine but please keep it natural and biodegradable.
We have plenty of space for outdoor games. You can have giant Jenga, bean bag toss, crocket or even crazy golf. With exclusive use of the Tea Lawn & Olympia Courtyard there's lots of space to play the day away.
Your furry friends are part of your family and should be with you on your big day. We do allow your furry friends to be part of your day but ask that your guests do not bring their pets and we don't allow pets in any of our on-site accommodation.
Our capacity for within the Hall is 100 guests and 150 in the evening in Olympia. If you have a wedding with more guests you could consider putting a marquee on our grounds. We will be happy to talk you through the options for marquees.
