  • Risley Hall Competition Winners


Simon & Louise could not believe it when they were selected as the Bespoke Competition winners at Risley Hall, which included Free Venue Hire!

After meeting with our Bespoke Wedding Planner and booking their Wedding date, Simon & Louise were entered into Round Two of the Competition at Risley Hall, a 1 in 10 chance of winning their Food & Drink Package! To be in with a chance the couple were required to write a story about how they met/their proposal, below is a snippet about how they met….

“Well, where do I begin? I’d best start with introducing ourselves,  my name is Louise and my partner’s name is Simon. We have been together for 16 and a half years. We first met at work but it was not till nearly a year of us working together that we realised that we liked each other and with Simon being a shy person, he finally asked me out for a drink at a work colleagues birthday party.”

Simon & Louise were later selected as our Round One & Two Winners of the Bespoke Competition at Risley Hall, congratulations! Upon finding out they said;

“To be told we had won round 1 we were shocked and could not believe how lucky we were because when we entered the competition we never expected that would ever happen and now to be told we have gone and won round 2 as well we are just totally blown away.


This means so much to us because getting married is the one thing we’ve wanted to do for so long and now after everything we have been through as a family, it’s given us something to look forward to. 


We just want to thank you all at bespoke weddings, Vicky our wedding planner and Sammy at Risley Hall. Risley Hall is a beautiful venue and we still can believe that this is finally happening 12th April 2020 we will finally get to say I do.

For starters, the hotel has a unique heritage as a stunning 11th Century Saxon country house set among 10 acres of its own private sculpted gardens and grounds. It’s just begging to be explored. Split into the Manor House and adjoining Willoughby Court, the hotel has a range of individual bedrooms and spacious suites amounting to a total of 35 bedrooms. 

The Baronial Hall makes a fantastic setting for your wedding feast. The high rafted ceiling, mullioned windows and magnificent minstrels’ gallery create an unforgettable venue for your special celebrations.
