Everything we hoped for
My (now) husband and I were married at Thicket Priory on 29th February 2020. Words cannot fully capture how wonderful Anna and the team at Thicket Priory were from start to finish. Every visit was like coming home and the love poured into the building by the owner Bruce can be seen throughout. Everything is thought through to the last detail; from the venue itself to each element of our wedding. We cannot express our thanks enough to everyone at Thicket Priory; it is truly the most special of treasures.Sent on 11/03/2020
Thicket Priory's reply:Such lovely words from Sarah & Pete, or should I say Mr & Mrs Crampton! We loved welcoming you to our 'home', and I loved that every visit you always rang the bell or knocked on the door before coming in! I'll never forget just how much we laughed when planning, you really did enhance just how much fun wedding planning is and I thank you for this!

Where's That? Part 1
Thicket Priory - where’s that? Those were the words spoken to our son when we were on holiday last year and he announced that not only had she said “yes” but also that the date and venue for the big day were fixed. Sitting thousands of miles away, little could we imagine the treat that was laying in store for us.Sent on 16/03/2020
Looking at the photographs on the website whetted our appetite but it was impossible to visualise the real thing so on our return to the UK we contacted Anna and arranged to meet her one cold September afternoon. She became the face of Thicket Priory for us. Her bright and bubbly personality with a casual, relaxed attitude but an underlying exacting eye for detail is exceptional. Having shown us the general layout, we were encouraged to wander around on our own, look into every room, and simply get lost for a couple of hours.
That was when the magic set in. Each room is unique with simple but beautiful harmonious decor and furnishings. There are also little anecdotes or a synopsis of their history over the centuries. We knew that our son’s wedding was going to be a very special weekend.
Thicket Priory's reply:Well, where can I start! HUGE tank you for your extra special review! You guys were such a great crowd to look after and you really made the team feel like guests at the wedding. We loved every minute and didn't want you to leave!

That weekend has just passed. Thicket Priory become “home” to our two families and their guests. From the informal meal in the Old Kitchen on Friday lunchtime through to breakfast on Sunday morning, nothing was too much trouble for Anna and her Team. We were able to chill outside in the sun on Friday afternoon, wander round the grounds and lake, and simply absorb the wonderful ambience of this lovely old building.Sent on 13/03/2020
Saturday morning was equally relaxed despite the comings and goings of hairdressers, florists, caterers, photographers and registrars alongside more guests. Even with so much activity, there remained an air of tranquility befitting our special occasion. The wedding itself was delightful. Little touches such as Anna letting our Grandson strike the gong to commence proceedings made it extra special.
We thoroughly enjoyed the entire time that we spent in this stunning and lovingly restored old house. It’s a shame it all went so quickly.
