A Venue For Your Guests

Wedding Planning - 12.09.18

There’s a lot to think about when choosing your wedding venue. First, you need to find a setting that suits the style of day you’d like, whether that’s glamorous, timeless or rustic. Second, you need to make sure it comes within budget and third, you need to ensure your Cheshire wedding venue will wow your guests too.

At Combermere Abbey, it’s simple. We want to make sure your special day is filled with smiling faces and happy memories. That’s why we work hard to ensure this wedding venue, with wedding accommodation on site, is as perfect for your guests as it is for you. Here’s how we can make your day special.

A-maze your guests

One of the best ways to impress your guests is to show them something they’ve never seen before. This might be easier said than done, especially when it comes to weddings, but we’ve got a trick up our sleeves.

Invite your guests to toast to your marriage and clink Champagne flutes in the fruit tree maze. With fruiting vines all around and the Edwardian Glasshouse for your backdrop, your guests will love this stunning setting.

Wander, socialise and sip prosecco as you find your way to the heart of the maze from nine different entrances. This is a great way to keep children entertained, too.

Let the games begin

When you say ‘I do’ at this Cheshire wedding venue, your package includes a selection of garden games. You also enjoy exclusive use of Combermere Abbey’s Glasshouse, Pavilion and Walled Garden, giving you plenty of space for fun and games.

Challenge your guests to a game of giant Jenga on the lawn. Take on your wedding party in a sack race. Or, for a more peaceful pace, set up a game of croquet in the garden. The choice is yours and with this much variety, there’s something to please every guest.

Party time!

Combermere Abbey’s Pavilion isn’t simply a fairy-tale setting for your wedding breakfast. When you’re ready to swap dinner for dancing, draw back the reveal curtain and open up the dance floor. There’s plenty of space for a live band or DJ, who will have your guests hot-footing it onto the floor in no time.

Even better, because the bar is also in the Pavilion at this Cheshire wedding venue, your guests can stay together and socialise. There’s a stylish chill-out zone at one end and the dance floor at the other. This ensures guests can rest their party feet while the celebratory atmosphere lasts into the night.

Sweet dreams

What really sets this venue apart is the wedding accommodation it offers. When the last dance comes to a close, you’ll retire to the North Wing for a luxurious night, waking to lake views and butler service. The experience is no less lovely for your guests, who have the opportunity to stay in Combermere Abbey’s Courtyard Cottages.

This self-catering wedding accommodation sleeps up to 49 of your nearest and dearest, just a short walk from the Pavilion. Each cottage has a unique charm and is exquisitely furnished, promising a perfect night’s sleep and an unforgettable stay. There’s no need to book a taxi or travel between venues here.

In a nod back to their former life as stables, the cottages open onto a picturesque courtyard. From something as small as a nightcap to something as big as a barbecue, your guests will love the chance to socialise in this charming outdoor space.
