    Incredible Venue + Service - Perfect Day

    Cheekwood is the most breathtaking venue - there is hardly a need to add anything to this stunning place and the photos don't do it justice. The staff was incredible - high communication, flexible and accommodating the whole way. This was especially impactful as we were planning during COVID but they kept us apprised and informed every step of the way. If you are considering it - just do it!

    Perfect & a dream come true

    Our daughter’s wedding was a dream come true.
    We were sold on the ceremony being held there the minute we stepped on the grounds. Then meeting with the event staff and them sharing in our excitement and anticipation of our big day, we were made to feel calm and in good hands. Also they dealt seamlessly with our wedding planner to plan and execute the most beautiful day.
    A dream wedding day!

Such a beautiful place for weddings and well run facilities. The grounds and architecture make for such a variety of backdrops and give bride and grooms so many choices for where to do their wedding and reception. Grew up visiting this place and now it makes it even more fun to create lasting memories here for bride and grooms.
