Wedding Open Day
Sunday 8th October
Come along and see the magnificent Hall set up for a wedding. Your wedding can be as grand or as intimate as you would like. Chat to the Arley staff who will be able to answer any questions you may have about any part of your special day. There are various locations at Arley where you can get married, from inside The Hall, in the Gardens in our award winning double herbaceous border or in the historic Cruck Barn, making it your choice.
You can see them all at this open day. A selection of our highly recommended suppliers will be here, each supplier has worked with Arley before and so we know you will get an excellent service. If you are not familiar with the format of a wedding ceremony, together with the Cheshire East Registrars you can go through the main points so you will know what to expect.
Open 10.00am to 3.00pm. No booking necessary, free entry and free parking.
