What can I say about Heaton House Farm as a wedding venue?
We spent nearly 2 years planning our wedding and I played a real hands on groom. Having organised many events and directed many shows I was bound to be a little groomzilla when it came to choosing a venue. We wanted a venue that we could make our own and pretty much add to it what we wanted. We saw many venues in Cheshire but took a trip a little further to see Heaton. On first approach you think where the hell are we and then you enter...,WOW firstly the lighting can match your scheme and you can decorate the venue how you like (I pushed the boundaries on this a lot!) Our wedding planner Saskia and the entire team were fantastic but Saskia and Jess had control of our day.
The best thing about this venue is that the day just flows no waiting around while a room is changed round. No awful patterned carpets, well priced bar and a better view than any hotel we have seen. We even chose this over a certain castle because we knew the day would be truly ours!
You could say the venue is like Ryan Air (in a good way) you can add on optional extras such as white carpets, circular stage, projectors etc all making the day look extra special and unique to any other venue. Our only negative point on this was that our white stage and dance floor were scuffed and we had to clean the mirrored columns. However the farm team were busy setting up Triplefest up the road for a charity event so I didn't mind sorting it!
We had a few guests staying and would have had many more stay but due to the awful weather the new building was not quite finished we were devastated but managed to accommodate most of our guests. It's easy to accommodate guests near by in Macclesfield and in other local B&Bs, the venue even provide you with all of this info and taxi numbers prior to you booking.
Staff at the venue are very friendly and you become part of the Heaton Family in the run up and VIPs on your special day. My wife and I shed so many tears on our day because the day was seamless and we were so relaxed.
Bridal suite is amazing and a great room for the bridal party to get ready in.
We used country kitchen as our caterers who were fantastic and provided us with real farm food all locally produced our guests loved it. The singing piano man provided our entertainment and was a perfect part of the day taking requests and creating a party feel. In the evening we used Luxury Booth. This was a great addition full of laughs and giggles the photos are fab. Dandi Kandi provided our chocolate fountain at a fantastic price again with great friendly staff. Our photographers Carpe Diem loved the venue as much as we did, kept us relaxed all day and let us enjoy the wedding when we wanted to stop posing!
Checking in and out was easy again my only little moan was that we had to wait a while for our deposit to be returned as the accounts lady was on holiday and no one else could do it. Meaning we were left short for our honeymoon we also didn't know know what the bar total was from our pre paid drinks until this point however everyone is entitled to a holiday. Our guest feedback was amazing the evening guests wished for better signposting and for it to be lit.
Heaton House is a special intimate family feel venue that invites you in to create a magical day that is yours. It's made me want to work for them and plan weddings!
Thank you so much for giving us an amazing wedding Mick, Margret & Sarah you have a very special place.
