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.

Choosing a Wedding Theme for your Perfect Cheshire Wedding

Sunday, July 28th, 2013


When you’re planning your wedding reception in Manchester or Cheshire, it can be difficult knowing where to start. There are so many options to consider such as decorations, food, venue and so on, it can be rather overwhelming. Most people find it helps to plan their reception around a theme. This gives you a central concept to tie everything around and helps to reduce the list of possible options when you are choosing decorations, invitations and favours.

It can help if you try and match your theme to the location and season of your wedding. A winter theme would seem very odd for a summer wedding! Try brainstorming a list of words that come to mind when you think of the season the wedding party will be held in – cherry blossoms and birds for spring, snowflakes and ice sculptures for winter for example. This can give you a good basis for wedding decorations and the like on a theme.

Also think about where the wedding will be held. Venues with gardens and attractive outdoor areas lend themselves well to a natural theme with relaxed arrangements of fresh flowers. If your wedding is in a castle you might like to consider a fairytale theme complete with a Cinderella style dress and a wedding cake fit for a princess.

Many couples choose the location where they first met or a common interest as the basis for a theme. An easy way to do this is to name the guest tables along these lines – e.g. famous mountains for a couple of hiking enthusiasts or even a list of countries you plan to visit in your round the world honeymoon trip!

If you want a really unusual theme that will get your wedding talked about and surely remembered by all your guests, you could consider a gothic wedding, a medieval wedding or even a pirate wedding! Obviously these ideas are not for everyone but if you and your partner both agree it could make for a really fun idea that you’re both sure to enjoy.

When you’ve got the general idea for your theme you can start to have a look for wedding supplies that match. Certain themes are more popular than others and you may have to get a little creative and make your own wedding favours and other items if you’ve chosen something that is really unusual. You might also want to give your bridesmaids and other assistants gifts that match your theme, which is a really fun way to ensure they remember your wedding fondly.

Browsing through wedding magazines can help to give you an idea of the effect you want to create at your wedding party and can give you some ideas for themes. They often also list wedding party decorations and suppliers so you’ll know exactly where to buy that particular wedding party favour.

If you’re really stuck for ideas then you might want to start with just your favourite colour. This can be used as the main colour for bridesmaid dresses and then also used in the wedding party decorations. Black and white can look very good when done well and adds a bit more interest to the usual white wedding. Purple is also a very popular choice. Pink lends itself well to a spring theme complete with cherry blossoms.
