One of the great aspects of marriage is its ability to unite two people surrounded by friends and family, all in the name of love.
Whatever your faith or religion, Delamere Manor provides wedding services that are unique to you as a couple. Our experienced in-house team is dedicated to helping you create a joyful and most of all memorable day, understanding and honouring the traditions of Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, and Chinese weddings alongside other faiths too throughout the years.
Part of what makes us different is our ability to bring exclusive wedding traditions to the glamour of an English manor house, set in the scenic Cheshire countryside. We are proud to accommodate to your needs with five versatile venues, grand spacious grounds for weddings big or small, segregation options for men and women if you need them, and suppliers who will work with you to make those extra special details a reality.
This is the beauty of an interfaith marriage, civil partnership, or vow renewal, as most couples are keen to combine elements of both religions, and therefore desire flexibility when it comes to planning their dream wedding.
Sadie Han and Jonny Pinkney are one couple who did just that, incorporating a Chinese tea ceremony as well as several other traditions for their summer wedding.
“We booked the venue less than two years after our engagement as we just knew it was the one the first time we visited and we didn’t want to leave. We wanted our ceremony to be outdoors and we chose Delamere Manor not only because it was beautiful, but it has such stunning grounds, including a six-acre lake.”
The breakfast, supplied by the wonderful Cheeky Chilli Events, involved the bride and groom serving Chinese tea to their elders. In return, red envelopes where given out to bless and symbolise good fortune in their marriage.
Other Asian aspects and little touches were featured too. From the golden colour scheme, Sadie’s little brother welcoming Jonny to the family, and Chinese songs beautifully played on the piano and sung by Sadie’s Malaysian family as the guests walked in. Plus, the top table was named Singapore – the place where Jonny romantically proposed.
As an added bonus, to celebrate their love of travelling and different cultures, guests had the opportunity to sign a globe, whilst the seating plan became a canvas of the world map for a truly international vibe.
