Dreams can come true

A beautiful wedding requires a stunning setting. At the Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa, we create unforgettable weddings in a supremely picturesque location.

We can offer you a choice of two elegant venues; Surrounded by the Portal Championship Golf Course the hotel offers the splendid Castle Suite which can accommodate from 50 to 200 guests. There are photo opportunities galore, spectacular locations centred around the stunning waterfall and manicured terraced lawns provide the perfect backdrop for this very special day. The breathtaking panoramic views on entering the impressive gates and driving down the tree lined drive sets an ideal scene for the big event.

If views are a priority then Portal's Premier Golf Clubhouse must be the ideal setting; surrounded by the golf course it offers the most breathtaking vistas across the Cheshire plane. The Octagonal Waterstone Suite can comfortably accommodate up to 200.

Our Wedding Specialist, Debbie Catchlove, will take care of all the details to make sure your day is perfect from start to finish. What better place to start your life together?"
