Top hotel now licensed to host weddings and civil ceremonies

Release Date: 15th September 2011

Casa – the highest rated AA 4* hotel in Chesterfield and a leading hotel in Derbyshire, according to world renowned travel website TripAdvisor – is now licensed to host weddings and civil ceremonies.

The news will alert couples looking to get married in and around Chesterfield that they can now potentially hold their wedding or civil ceremony at the £20 million Casa hotel and take advantage of its four licensed and flexible event suites, which can cater for events of all sizes.

The largest of the suites is the Barcelona Suite, which can accommodate up to 250 guests and allows wedding and civil ceremony organisers to design lighting according to the ceremony’s colour scheme. Casa also offers other, more intimate spaces, as well as open terraces for outdoor ceremonies and receptions.

Casa also shares a close relationship with nearby Walton Lodge Farm, which means that food prepared for and served at wedding events is fresh, organically reared, locally sourced and travels very few food miles.

Casa owner Steve Perez said: “We’re delighted that we will now be able to open our doors to couples looking for a stylish and romantic Derbyshire venue to hold their wedding or civil ceremony in.


“Casa is a unique property with bags of personality that also offers incredible flexibility in terms of its event suites and outdoor space.


“We also have a large and experienced team of event organisers keen to help couples ensure that the biggest day of their lives goes as smoothly as possible, meaning that they can just relax and enjoy themselves.”


Couples looking for a romantic place to stay on the night of their wedding can enjoy one of Casa’ six stylish suites. These ultra-luxurious suites include Jacuzzi baths, a lounge and dressing area, separate shower cubicle, double basins, super king beds and balconies. Two suites boast hot tubs on the balcony, which are a perfect indulgence for any guest seeking the ultimate retreat and relaxation.


Wedding guests can also enjoy a wide range of facilities: a 100-cover restaurant, Cocina, serving traditional Spanish tapas, the gym and open terraces. And, with the picturesque Peak District National Park on the doorstep, guests can easily access a host of attractions, including Chatsworth House, Bolsover Castle and the neighbouring towns of Matlock Bath, Buxton and Bakewell.
