Stephen & Michael’s Wedding at Capesthorne Hall

We visited Capesthorne Hall last weekend for the beautiful Wedding of Stephen and Michael Howell on Saturday the 17th of May. Their story is one of true romance, as they travelled all the way back to Capesthorne Hall from Queensland, Australia to get married where they first met 10 years ago. It’s a beautiful venue and any chance we get to cater there always makes for a wonderful day.

We were lucky enough to work with many of the best Wedding suppliers in the North West area at the Wedding such as, Adagio String Quartet, Cakeydora, Lesley Meredith Photography and Shaun Meredith Photography. Be sure to check out all of their websites to take a look at the amazing services they provide.

We were flattered to receive this wonderful thank you note from the lovely couple themselves, it’s always amazing to hear such wonderful feedback, thank you very much! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your day – so did we!

“It’s fair to say that Michael and I had a dream day on Sunday. We just wanted to thank you all including Jo, Alex and all of your staff for what was a truly memorable day. The service offered by Vanilla was beyond first class and the food was truly outstanding – we loved it all! The feedback from guests regarding Vanilla was absolutely flawless!”
