A Knutsford Wedding Venue

We had my daughter’s wedding at The Belle Epoque yesterday, (Sunday 19 Feb 2017). Cannot praise the staff enough…their attention to detail and the amazing way they made the day flow without any hiccups. The venue itself was fantastic, loads of space but still intimate. Special mention to John who made the day extra special by making us all FEEL special. Can’t recommend this venue enough”.


Just a quick email to say a massive THANK YOU To you and your team. the wedding was unbelievable, the best day ever! I will be writing on trip advisor this evening saying how fantastic you all are! We couldn’t have wished for a better day!! it went o quickly though, i want to do it all again. Please can you thank the chefs too, the food was spot on….people are still talking about those pies, they were awesome!!! i can’t thank you enough for everything….it was just perfect!!!”


Our wedding went perfectly. I loved every minute of it. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and after a few photos outside people gathered round the fire with their winter pimms to warm up just as I had imagined. We had so much fun and we were so relaxed all day thanks to all your planning and everyone on the day. They were all so friendly and happy to help.”
