Capesthorne Hall, Siddington – granite countertop project

Capesthorne Hall is a country house near the village of Siddington in Cheshire which is absolutely steeped in history. Originally built in the early 18th century, the country hall has been altered by numerous architects of note in several historically significant styles.

Today, Capesthorne Hall is a member of the Historic Houses Association charging visitors a small admission price to look around.

The hall and gardens are also available to hire for weddings and other corporate events.

Installing granite in a luxury wedding venue

granite bar top 1Capesthorne Hall approached the Cheshire Graniteline team to design and install a new granite bar in one of the reception rooms used for weddings and other events.

The hall is relatively expensive to rent, so it was important that every fitting in the room conveyed that look of luxury expected by the bride and groom.

The design also had to be sensitive to the rest of the room, as well as some of the buildings historical features.

In consultation with the hall manager we decided on an understated monochromatic design scheme. We chose a grand slab of Silver Paradiso granite from South America with a 60mm downstand edge finish.

We then matched white granite ‘veins’ with a brilliant white paint so as to fit with the rest of the reception room.
