Book thicket for your wedding
Incredible in every way
The venue itself is stunning and we loved being able to offer our guests rooms. The attention to detail is excellent and the whole place has been so thoughtfully finished.
Thicket is a very special place with a dream team. Thank you so much for the best day of our lives x

Our wedding at Thicket Priory
Magical Wedding Venue!
A magical, private dream venue
From the moment you drive down the long, magical driveway, you will fall in love with this place! The stunning, brand new interiors are jaw droppingly beautiful and the views in the grounds, including all the bridges around the lake make for some incredible wedding photos. Inside is light and airy, great for photos. Perhaps the best thing though is that the whole place is yours, you can make it your own home for a day, with no intrusions from other guests and decorate it in your own style!
The bridal suite and grooms suite (yes he gets one too!) are the most gorgeous, spacious rooms I’ve seen! The lighting was brill for makeup and photos!
The team at the venue were so helpful throughout our Covid- delayed wedding, from start to finish, they were friendly, engaged, enthusiastic and nothing was too much trouble. I couldn’t thank them enough for bringing our perfect day to life, after waiting so long!
Such a super venue and lovely, down to earth team who really care!
The best place to get married!
Wow-just choose this venue!
Couples book wedding venues on the team working there-not just the venue itself. Their passion and love for all things romance and Thicket was extraordinary-and they have a great calming nature, very useful!
All our guests commented on the team being so lovely, friendly and helpful. Anna was amazing and made us feel like we were at a home away from home. Our guests and us felt relaxed throughout the whole weekend.
Highly recommend hiring Thicket Priory for two nights. Make sure you have time to go exploring-every visit we’ve had to Thicket we’ve found something new.

Wedding at Thicket Priory
The best 🤭
Anna and the team are incredible, a huge asset to the stunning venue. Nothing was too much to ask, and Anna put my mind at ease from the moment we met her to view Thicket Priory for the first time. We booked the wedding on a relatively short time frame (4 months before the wedding), and Anna was unflappable!
As a wedding planner myself to say I’m particular is an understatement, but Thicket delivered in every area. With a number of catering options to choose from (which many venues don’t offer you), we felt like we had control over what to serve, how it would be served, and the price point we wanted to work to, (would highly recommend Nomad Catering by James Brown). The bedrooms are all unique and kept to an incredibly high standard, the bar is very reasonably priced (especially to say they have you as a captive audience so could charge a fortune!), the grounds are second to none, the number of options for where to get married is a luxury many places can’t offer, and the team are just the BEST (cannot stress this enough).
If you’re looking for somewhere beautiful to gather your loved ones under one roof for a couple of nights, stop looking and book Thicket Priory. You will not be disappointed! X
