The original building built in 1816 houses our sumptuous lounges & beautiful Restaurants, which retain 2 AA Rosettes for the fine cuisine whilst providing the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography.

Licensed for Civil Ceremonies and Partnerships, we can create a seamless day, flowing from the intimacy of taking your vows in front of close family and friends to a champagne celebration on the fountain lawn followed by sharing that magical 'first dance' with all your evening guests. The Worleston Suite is light and airy, decorated in a classic contemporary style with luxurious design touches such as rich rosewood timber, linen, suede and velvet fabrics with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Cheshire countryside it couldn't be more perfect!

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank Rookery Hall from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding day beyond perfect. We were thoroughly impressed with the personalised and courteous attention given to us. From the start, our questions were answered promptly and courteously and we were always treated like top customers. Our guests have also all raved about the food and facilities. Thank you again for all that you have done to make our wedding so perfect."
Andy and Kate Smith


"We held our wedding breakfast and reception at Rookery and it was the most amazing experience we could have wished for. The amount of e-mails from me that Leanne our wedding assistant had to deal with was unreal, but she didn't complain at all. She was so helpful, and with her planning and advice we managed to pull off the best day in under 5 months from booking. On the wedding day, Lianne, Jane and her team were excellent, and even though I caused the day to run behind, there were no complaints and they helped it all to run as smoothly as if it was on time. We would recommend Rookery to anyone who wanted a personalised wedding, with help from start to finish."
