About The Courthouse Hotel
Weddings at The Courthouse are unique & can be tailored to suit your individual taste; we can assist you in creating your perfect day. Licensed for Civil Ceremonies, the choice of setting for saying “I Do” really is up to you.
The Courthouse is ideally located opposite the town’s beautiful St. John’s Church and within walking distance of Knutsford Methodist Church and Brook Street Chapel.
The Courthouse is one of the most iconic buildings in South Cheshire. As a former Crown Court, the building has stood since 1818 as the grand & elegant creation of famed architect George Moneypenny; full of history & architectural glamour.
THE MONEYPENNY SUITE
Typically used for Civil Ceremonies, drinks receptions (it has a vintage portable bar) and more intimate weddings for up to 60 people; its large windows and quirky feel make it perfect for more informal gatherings.
This grand and elegant room boasts many original features along with its own large private bar (which was once the jury dock) and private dining for up to 220 people. Split over two levels, it gives you a view of your guests during the wedding breakfast meaning you won’t miss a thing, the upper level can also be used as a designated area for night time dancing with the original witness box for those candid photo opportunities!
THE ROOFTOP GARDEN
The Rooftop Garden is a stunning cocktail & Champagne bar with space for 100 people; filled with botanical herbs, a Chef’s garden and seasonal flowers. Partially covered, it affords some shade during warmer months, staged areas of casual seating and standing space with views over the centre of Knutsford. We stock a range of Perrier-Jouët Champagne for you to choose from.
