Colshaw Hall is a luxurious and exclusive Cheshire wedding venue. This Grade II listed hall is situated on a private country estate and is owned by the Irlam family. This stunning wedding venue offers you many options to create your perfect wedding day or celebration.

Colshaw Hall is located in Over Peover; a lovely village just outside Knutsford and within easy reach of Wilmslow, Chester, Manchester and Macclesfield.

This was the venue for today’s wedding between Charlotte and Zac.

The Ceremony

Starting in the ceremony barn we set up using our acoustic cello and the venue Grand Piano. It’s always a bit of a risk using pianos in the wedding venue but often couples ask us to. The concern we have is that venues never seem to tune or maintain their pianos and so it can be incredibly difficult sometimes to tune to the cello.

The piano here was no exception but it was usable for the purpose of the ceremony. We had to detune the cello to match it as closely as possible to the venue piano and hopefully the results were acceptable!

Charlotte and Zac had chosen some great music for their ceremony which included:

Pre Ceremony
Game of Thrones
Angels (Robbie Williams)
Wonderwall (Oasis)
Jurassic Park
A Millions Dreams (Greatest Showman)

Bridal Entrance
If I Could Fly (One Direction)

Beneath You’re Beautiful (Labrinth)
Your Song (Elton John)

Song request- Leave Your Life (Ed Sheeran)

The Drinks Reception

After the ceremony it was a short walk to the Drinks reception. One advantage of using a venue piano and our acoustic cello is that we had pre set up our own keyboard, PA and Electric Cello for the drinks reception. This meant no moving of kit between the ceremony and drinks and so we could start playing pretty much straight away as the guests arrived for the drinks.

Music for the Drinks

We always encourage couples to choose music for different parts of their day. It’s of course not obligatory but it’s also important for us to play music that our couples like. Charlotte and Zac had given us a list of some great songs which we were only to happy to play for them.

Signed Sealed Delivered (Stevie Wonder)
This Will Be An Everlasting Love
Accidentally In Love – Shrek
Marry You (Bruno Mars)
Here Comes The Sun (The Beatles)
Love Me Like You Do (Ellie Goulding)
The Joker and the Queen (Ed Sheeran)
Yellow (Coldplay)
Better Together (Jack Johnson)
Dancing In The Moonlight (Toploader)
Africa (Toto)

Love Story (Taylor Swift)
I’ll Be There For You (Friends)
Dance Monkey (Tones and I)
Love Story (Taylor Swift)
The Cave (Mumford & Sons)

We really enjoyed being a part of Charlotte and Zac’s wedding at Colshaw Hall in Over Peover and we wish them every happiness as they embark on their married life together.
