Congratulations! You’re planning one of the biggest days of your life. You want to be in safe experienced hands. Well you’re in the right place. Hallmark Hotel The Queen, Chester has been hosting weddings for over 150 years. We love the pomp and ceremony. You’ll love our attention to detail and passionate professional service.
You’ll also love our setting. The magnificent Grade 11 listed brick and stucco hotel is a photographer’s dream. Not just the marvelous Victorian proportions and features, particularly our theatrical four-storey staircase with its ornate iron balustrade, but the elegant Italian terrace and gardens, a city oasis with marble arches, classical sculptures and lush foliage.
Size doesn’t matter. We can cater for every type of reception, civil ceremony and partnership. We have eight different spaces, including two dreamy al fresco locations, and six banqueting suites that suit anything from intimate gathering – perhaps just the two of you! – to a party of a hundred in the Victoria room with its high ceilings and bay windows, to the Colonnades, which can seat 300 guests.
At the heart of our service is a team of expert coordinators and planners, who blend unbeatable experience and local contacts with a determination to get absolutely everything, down to the smallest detail, right for your big day. They’ll take the strain from start to finish. They work with our highly professional staff and award-winning kitchen, which can conjure up banquets, buffet and brilliant canapés.
For brides looking to prepare – or recover! – there’s our Secret Sanctuary Spa with exclusive Pinks Boutique organic products. Your guests can chose from the Hallmark Hotel The Queen, Chester's 218 rooms and suites, ensuring they can stay to drain every last drop of enjoyment from your big day. There’s even a bridal suite with a stunning four-poster bed and splendidly large bath that, naturally, takes two people.
Don’t just read about it, however. Join us at one of our Wedding Showcases, with canapés, bubbly and a raft of trusted local suppliers for everything from photography and flowers to cakes and venue decoration. It’s a chance to learn about our summer, winter, and even moonlight wedding packages. Of course nothing is set in stone. We can tailor and tweak everything, guaranteeing it’s your own, unique big day.
