Yorkshire Wedding Photographer Tom Roberts, of Champagne Shutter Photography, at Capesthorne Hall

Capesthorne Hall lies amidst old mill towns near Macclesfield, on the main road to Congleton, west of Buxton and the beauty of the Peak District National Park.

It is home to the Bromley-Davenport family (whose ancestry includes the Wards and Capesthornes).  Sir William Bromley-Davenport (born 1935), son of politician and landowner Sir Walter, served as Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire from 1990 to 2010, when he was appointed Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order.  He married American Lady Bromley-Davenport in 1962. They have 2 children and 5 grandchildren.  Elizabeth (born 1940) comes from a family of professional artists and studied at the Italian Art Academy in Rome. 

Capesthorne Hall includes many marble sculptures, English, French and Dutch antique furniture, and 16th Century stained glass windows.

There is an enormously flexible and broad range of choice when planning for your wedding at Capesthorne Hall, from Ceremony and reception spaces in the Hall itself, to the more modern addition overlooking the lakeside for both ceremony and reception – the Lakeside can be hired together with the Hall, or separately, subject to guest numbers.  Outdoor ceremony options, and Chapel Blessings, are also available.  The Hall and Lakeside are yours for exclusive use, with grounds just perfect for elegant, picturesque wedding photography.

The Drawing Room can be used for civil ceremonies of up to 100 guests (through Cheshire East Registrars).

The Saloon is available for drinks and canapés. The Queen Anne Room can host a wedding breakfast for up to 80, whilst larger capacity is available in the Lakeside.

The Georgian Chapel, alongside the Hall and set in its own walled gardens, was consecrated in 1722 and can be used to have the local Vicar conduct a Blessing after the civil ceremony, with a capacity of 75 guests. This is another opportunity for stunning wedding photographs.

Beyond the South Tower Cottage (capacity 4), other accommodation available includes the Lakeside Cottage (capacity 4) and Lakeside Village – 6 contemporary lodges with king-size bed and en-suite shower (each capacity 2). These, and the Potting Shed, are set within the main walled gardens, whilst the Carriage House is a first-floor apartment (capacity 4).

Capesthorne Hall’s grounds also include a caravan park.
