The stunning Cheshire countryside with its unique stately homes and castles has become THE place to wed.

Soughton Hall Hotel, located on the outskirts of Cheshire is one such location. With its stunning gardens. This beautiful, historic stately home is the perfect wedding venue in Chester. The former Bishops palace was built in 1714, belonging to the Wynne-Bankes family for several generations it was recently purchased by Manchester based group Elle R Leisure and has since undergone a major sympathetic renovation.

Retaining its character and individuality was of utmost importance in renovating the listed building. Indeed, William John Bankes (the intrepid 19th century explorer and collector) implemented several renovations to the hall (inspired by his travels to the Middle-East). Interestingly these changes were drawn up by Sir Charles Barry, architect of the British Houses of Parliament.
