THE Courthouse in Knutsford is offering a lucky couple the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win an all-expenses paid wedding.

The wedding venue launched the competition, which is worth more than £12,000, at its Wedding Fair on Sunday.

The Courthouse is a Grade II listed building, designed by architect George Moneypenny.

The former home of Knutsford Crown Court, the Courthouse was built in 1818.

The property has been sensitively restored by owners Flat Cap Hotels, retaining many of its original features.

The building’s ornate ceilings, huge feature windows and beautiful glass dome centrepiece make the perfect backdrop for a unique and memorable wedding.

The Courthouse Wedding Fair took place in the Court Room and featured an array of local suppliers, including co-sponsor Butterfly Events.

A family-run business based in Cheshire, Butterfly Events specialises in venue dressing and event decoration, and will be providing 10 gorgeous blossom trees as part of the prize.

Marie Gillen, the company’s director said: “We are delighted to be involved with this wonderful competition and to be providing the all-important finishing touches to this very special wedding package.

“The Courthouse is an absolutely stunning venue and we know from experience it will look truly magical with the addition of 10 beautiful blossom trees.”

As well as room hire of the Court Room, Moneypenny Suite (and Barristers Restaurant during turnaround), the prize includes a dance floor, bar extension and Prosecco for 40 people.

A wedding breakfast for 40 people and a light bites meal later in the day are also provided in the package, as are two luxury double bedrooms and the hotel’s exclusive bridal suite.

Photography from 30 minutes before the ceremony up until the start of the wedding breakfast, a wedding cake up to the value of £200, video coverage of the marriage itself and bridal hair and make-up are also provided.

Couples can enter the competition numerous times, and the winning wedding must be taken between January to March 2020 and 2021, subject to availability. Those hoping to win the prize can enter online at

Couples that have already booked a wedding at The Courthouse are also eligible. The competition closes on April 10, 2019 and the lucky winners will be notified on the same day by email.
