Here’s how to choose the perfect wedding venue

Your wedding day is one of the most special occasions in your life, and choosing the perfect venue is crucial to ensuring that your big day is unforgettable. Your venue sets the tone for your entire wedding, and the right choice can make all the difference. With so many different options available, it can be overwhelming to decide on the perfect wedding venue for you. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of choosing the perfect wedding venue, and introduce you to a stunning venue that ticks all the boxes – Combermere Abbey.


One of the first things to consider when choosing a wedding venue is the location. Do you want to stay close to home or have a destination wedding?

Cheshire is a beautiful county that offers a wealth of benefits for couples looking to tie the knot. The county is known for its stunning landscapes, and is easily accessible from major cities like Manchester and Liverpool, making it convenient for guests who are travelling from afar.

Combermere Abbey is located in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, offering a picturesque setting for your special day. Surrounded by acres of stunning parkland, it provides a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.


The size of your guest list will dictate the capacity of your wedding venue. If you’re planning a small, intimate wedding, a cosy venue with character might be the perfect fit. If you’re planning a larger wedding, you’ll need a venue that can accommodate all of your guests comfortably.

Combermere Abbey can cater for both large and small weddings, with a capacity of up to 120 guests for a ceremony and wedding breakfast, and up to 150 guests for an evening reception. The venue offers a range of flexible spaces to suit your needs, from the intimate Glasshouse to the grand Pavilion.


The style of your wedding venue should reflect your personal taste and complement the theme of your wedding. Whether you’re dreaming of a rustic barn wedding or a grand country house affair, there’s a venue out there that’s perfect for you.

Combermere Abbey is a stunning country estate that combines historic charm with modern luxury. The venue boasts a variety of spaces, from the rustic Stone Lodge to the elegant Drawing Room, all of which can be styled to suit your vision.


Food is a big part of any wedding, and it’s important to choose a venue that can provide delicious, high-quality catering that meets your dietary requirements and preferences.
