Crewe Hall Hotel & Spa has announced that its exquisite chapel is now licenced to hold civil wedding ceremonies in addition to the already impressive grounds.
The chapel dates back as far as 1656 boasting an array of stunning architecture. Located in the heart of Cheshire, Crewe Hall Hotel & Spa is a Grade I listed Jacobean mansion originally owned by the influential Crewe family. The chapel was built as a place of worship for the family and their staff.
Steeped in rich history, the chapel boasts 12 ornate stained-glass windows depicting the apostles, as well as alabaster and marble carvings. On the altar floor, you can see the Crewe motto in the original gold leaf. The sacrarium arch setting off the whole is of alabaster and marble with incised patterning.
Back in the 17th century, when services were conducted in the original chapel, the Crewe family sat in their own pew in the gallery above, which they entered through their own private door upstairs. The duties of the resident parson included the education of the Crewe's children in addition to ministering to the spiritual needs of the family and their servants.
The weddings team are now taking bookings for civil ceremonies as well as non-religious events within the chapel. It's a truly unique and special element to include in your day. Ideal for intimate occasions, it can seat up to 40 guests, with additional capacity for 35 standing behind the pews and on the upper balcony. Receptions can then be carried on within the hotel's other historical spaces such as The Drawing Room, The Long Gallery or The Great Library. With a whole realm of function suites available, this idyllic 17th-century mansion, with manicured grounds, elegant rooms and spectacular views is made for unforgettable weddings.
