Polly & Andrew - Sept 2022

‘From when we first saw Capesthorne Hall, we fell in love with it. It is the most beautiful place and we knew it would be perfect for our wedding. Our wedding coordinator was incredible from the moment we met her. Everything from organising times we could see the venue, being a friendly voice on the phone, advising us about all things wedding to accommodating our requests, nothing was too much trouble. Leading up to the wedding, our wedding coordinator was extremely organised which makes a brides life so much easier! The attention to detail with everything was immaculate. Our wedding day ran so smoothly and that was largely down to the Capesthorne staff. Such professional and friendly people who are so lovely! Rob and Joanna xxx’
