The 18th Century Manor is beautifully framed by trees and a bespoke ornamental pond with fountain feature . The Manor which used to be Hoole Hall is situated in the centre of the Hotel grounds. It is a beautiful building that is surrounded by 12 acres of landscaped gardens. A modern unique pagoda is on the right side of the ornamental pond, surrounded by beautiful tall trees. Stretching out is the serene Victorian Walled Garden with lavender beds. This Chester wedding venue has two restaurants, three indoor wedding suites, an outdoor wedding pagoda, a grade II Conservatory, 219 bedrooms and possibly one of the best spa's in the UK.

Ceremony Suites and Hotel Grounds.

Are you thinking of having a Doubletree Hilton Chester Wedding? This is an excellent choice. I would recommend that you visit the venue and make an appointment with the In-house Wedding coordinator. The DoubleTree By Hilton has various wedding packages and Wedding breakfast menus to offer. The staff are really lovely and they will be happy to help you plan your wedding day.

This page is an insight into my appreciation of this Cheshire wedding venue. I want to share my knowledge that I have gained from working as a wedding photographer at this wedding venue.

Featured below are wedding photographs taken by myself of a Bride and Groom in the grounds of The DoubleTree Hilton Chester. This is one of my favourite wedding venues for taking wedding photographs as there are so many beautiful backdrops.

Wedding Portraits

After the wedding ceremony and during the guests mingling, having canapés and refreshments, I will take the Bride and Groom to have some Portraits done. This is a relaxed session with little posing. This is also a chance for you to be together as a married couple away from the crowds. Following this I will commence group photographs if they have been requested. I find keeping group shots to a minimum is best. This means less time in front of the camera and more time to enjoy your day. I will be taking natural photographs during this time and capturing some real emotions.

Outdoor Wedding Venues Cheshire

In addition to three ceremony rooms, The Doubletree Hilton Chester has the option to facilitate an outdoor ceremony. Getting married Al Fresco is a growing trend these days. Outdoor weddings are magical in essence. Being surrounded by a beautiful, natural backdrop. Outdoor ceremony’s at the DoubleTree Hilton take place under a wooden style Pagoda, which is eloquently situated next to the ornamental pond. Can you imagine on a summers day, the sounds of the fountain spray on the pond and a gentle breeze rustling the trees. Sounds Bliss doesn’t it!

Outdoor Weddings

The Abbey Suite

DoubleTree Hilton Chester Wedding Ceremony Suites.

Rustic, Romantic and Charming are three words I would use to describe this Hilton wedding suite. The Abbey Suite is a converted barn. It features original oak beams and bare brick. This old building is grand in height and in presence. There are beautiful arched windows running along one side of the building letting in beams of sunlight. The wall running parallel is large glass panels looking onto the Abbey Suite’s private gardens. Because there are Window’s on both sides the room is bathed in natural light. Being a big lover of any sort of lighting, what stands out for me are the antique wrought iron style candle chandeliers running along the ceiling.

The Abbey Suite looks amazing when decorated, and equally when kept at a minimal. If you are looking for a ceremony room that has a historic yet modern feel. This would be perfect. The Abbey Suite can cater for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and the evening celebrations. While room changes are being made guests are taken to a private bar area.

The Yerburgh Suite


The Yerburgh Suite is part of the 18th Century Manor. The building has large bay windows all around, looking onto the Victorian walled gardens and the pond. The room has lots of natural light and lovely views. Large stunning chandeliers hang from the ceilings which add to this room’s wow factor. The Yerburgh suite can be used for smaller more intimate ceremony’s. This room joins on to the Grade II English Heritage conservatory where guests can enjoy drinks and canapés inside or on the patio area.


The Yerburgh Suite is a statement room. I have used this room on rainy days as a backdrop to take the Bride and Groom Portraits.

The Ballroom

If you have a large wedding party The Ballroom would be the right room for you. Adjoined to the Conservatory, this modern room can cater for 350 guests for a reception, or 220 guests for a dinner and dance making it the largest room for hosting events. The Ballroom has a contemporary chequered dance floor and modern lighting. The Ballroom can be divided into 2 separate function rooms for smaller numbers. This space is used for the Ceremony, Wedding Breakfast and Evening Celebrations.


Doubletree Hilton Chester Spa

The Club and Spa Chester

Having lived only 10 minutes walk from The DoubleTree By Hilton, I often spoilt myself by visiting The Club & Spa at this Cheshire Hotel. I have to say that this is the best Spa that I have ever experienced. You are greeted by very welcoming staff who provide you with a robe and slippers, which is always a nice touch. When staying at a hotel I am happy if the on-site spa has a pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. This Spa has it all. You have a choice of a Sauna, Steam room and Turkish Hamman. Then you have the lap pool, poolside lounge area, a walk in hydro pool, a lie-down hydro pool, and an outside heated pool with waterfall which is great for a shoulder massage.

The Club & Spa is on three floors. One floor boasts a next generation gym, which is one of the best gyms in Chester. There are 14 Treatment Rooms offering a variety of therapy’s, a couples suite with a private sauna and whirlpool. At the end of your session you will be taken to The Dream Wave Room. This is a dim lit room with meditative sounds and a relaxing projections which will make you just drift away. If your looking at Spa hotels in Chester I recommend you try this one out.

The Spa is an added bonus for you and your wedding guests that are staying at the hotel. Check out what packages The Club & Spa are offering for Hen party’s.

Bedrooms & suites

The Doubletree by Hilton has 219 rooms in total. Family rooms, Suite’s, Single and Double rooms. All Rooms are spacious and have a Contemporary feel. The rooms are light and spacious, ideal for having your hair and make up done. The photographs below are taken in a bedroom suite at the hotel during Bridal Preparations. Have your wedding photographer start taking photographs from Bridal preparations. If you have opted for more natural style photography, then capturing the morning laughter and nerves really adds to the story.
