Beautiful Wedding Venues in Knutsford: Colshaw Hall

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

I have recently played at a wedding in the fabulous grounds of Colshaw Hall in Knutsford, Cheshire.  I was so impressed with the venue that I decided to write this blog post.

If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue to make your dreams come true, wade through the beautiful countryside of Cheshire and you will soon approach a charming and beautifully restored Grade II listed property that has been given the attention it deserves by the Irlam family.  They love their home so much they wanted others to experience the excitement and enchantment this hall brings.

Built in 1903 solely for the Peel family, this sits in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.

Being located in Knutsford this is ideally located for those situated in the North West and looking for the ultimate wedding venue for their perfect day.  Whilst the Hall provides a grand backdrop easily highlighting the magnificence of your event it has very private and peaceful gardens, welcoming those private moments and making the perfect setting for your first pictures as a married couple.

Create your Cheshire Wedding that is unique to you


The perfect wedding would be one that is tailored and unique to you.  At Colshaw Hall you are welcome to celebrate your wedding how you would like to.  After all it is your wedding day.  There are three locations within the grounds to choose from.  You have the choice of the Peel Suite, the grand hall or if the weather permits, have your wedding outside in the gardens.  Each offering a completely different wedding experience.

What does the Peel Suite offer?


Looking for a grand wedding, then look no further as the Peel Suite caters for up to 200 guests.  You and your guests can toast your wedding in style as you enjoy the luxury of a marquee attached to the suite and enjoy an extravagant party as you start your wedding life together.

What does the Hall offer?

Perfect for intimate weddings as this holds up to 50 guests, ending the day in the Music Room, the perfect setting for a family celebration.

The Grounds?


Colshaw Hall has a vast amount of land to enjoy.  In fact there are 300 acres.  On a perfect sunny day say your vows under the glorious English sunshine in a garden that would make you and your guests think “wow”.  Wedding couples can choose to get married in two parts of the gardens, Magnolia Garden and Walled Garden.  Both are truly beautifully landscaped providing Colshaw Hall as the perfect backdrop.

Don’t forget that the gardens create the perfect photo opportunities and give the opportunity for intimate and family portraits to be taken by the lake, bridge or in front of Colshaw Hall.

An exclusive venue to make your own memories…..

I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I was by this venue, I was certainly highly impressed.  It is the place to create your own family memories to be cherished forever as you feel welcomed by Heather and David and their children.

The Best Wedding Venues in Knutsford

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

In my years working as a wedding DJ in Cheshire, I’ve played at many different venues and find myself returning time and time again to the same locations. It’s not just the look of a venue that makes it a great place to host a wedding reception but also friendly staff, convenient location, great facilities and capacity for many guests. Here are my top tips for the best wedding party venues in Knutsford:

Belle Epoque


Belle Epoque is one of my favourite venues to play at in Knutsford and it’s also obviously very popular with newly married couples and their guests. The venue itself is beautiful and glamorous with lots of deep red velvet furnishings and art-deco features, under flickering candlelight.

This is an intimate venue ideal for smaller weddings. If you choose to have your wedding ceremony here, they can accommodate up to 100 guests and for a reception, up to 120 guests can be catered for.
