My Husband and I had our wedding reception at Risley Hall on 17th August and it really was the most beautiful day ever. Nothing it too much trouble for the staff and they are there on hand as soon as you need them.

Our wedding co ordinator Sammy was fantastic, she always got back to us straight

away, everything we wanted was sorted immediately and she listened to everything we said and helped our dream wedding happen.

The food was incredible - I’m from a fussy Italian family and everybody loved the food particularly the lasagne. She even let me have custard with my desert and everyone else has ice cream! Little details that we were allowed to swap reallt did make up feel special. Even though they do weddings all year round Sammy really did make us feel like she was there to support and help no matter how busy she was.

The room looked absolutely beautiful and was everything we dreamt of and the staff are the friendliest, most hard working and helpful people I have ever come across and a venue. No request refused and the lady who was with us on our special day right from the beginning was incredible. She even gave me a huge hug when we left the following morning.

The grounds are absolutely perfect for your photos, with rustic walls, gates and plenty of plants and scenery our photos look perfect. There are also some lovely places indoors to have tour photos taken.

The following morning we had a big family breakfast in the Suite where we had our reception and it was spotless. Plenty of food and all our guests still keep saying the breakfast was the best they’d ever had!

Risley hall really is the most beautiful and special place to have your wedding reception or any kind of family event. We really cannot wait to go back as we loved visiting as many times was we could before the wedding!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to sammy and all the team at Risley for making our dream day possible and for all your love, help and attention to detail!

We've known Risley Hall Hotel for many years having had many a happy office Christmas dinner there and some wonderful family parties. When we came to choose a wedding venue it seemed a natural choice because of our fondness for the hotel.
The organization of our wedding day was seamless and nothing

was too much trouble for the staff and our the wedding coordinator. Menu adjustments were welcomed without too much financial trauma !! A damp morning was followed by a gloriously sunny afternoon, all by special arrangement we're sure!
Overall nothing was too much trouble, the cost was extremely reasonable and we and our guests had had a superb day.

Sam and I were married on 8th August this year and had our reception at Risley Hall hotel.

After searching for a long time for a place as pretty, well situated and reasonably priced as Risley is. Having planned the wedding for a long time in my mind I wanted everything to be perfect which

probably made me more demanding than most (!)

However, everything we asked of Risley we received, from looking at other menu options, having a band, our own beer. Nothing was too much, nothing could not find a way to be done.

Robyn there has been my contact since booking our wedding and has been amazing. The communication has been excellent, often receiving email replies late at night. She is a valuable asset to Risley and deserves recognition for all her hard work.

The day itself was effortless, the food was brilliant and the waitresses and waiters were excellent. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

We choose Risley because of the grounds and the hall which made us be able to look past some of the renovations that Risley is in need of. The newer building rooms are much better but the older area are more old fashioned then being in keeping with the building. Risley has the elements to be amazing, great staff, amazing building and beautiful grounds, it needs some tlc. With investment this place could be amazing.

Our wedding day was perfect and there was not one thing I would change. Risley was perfect for us. Thank you all for making our day special, especially Robyn
