Best decision ever

I first viewed Thirsk Lodge Barns on my own on the way back from a work trip to “tick it off the list”… and from the moment I walked in, I knew it was the venue for us! I returned the day after with my husband (then fiancé) and we both fell in love with it - and the team!

Everything about the venue has been considered, from the private “VIP” room and bathroom for the bride and groom to use, to the separate meal/reception rooms, wheelhouse “quiet” area, bar and the gorgeous courtyard. Unlike other barns we had viewed, this one was warm, welcoming and featured some gorgeous design details. Every time we saw it, it seemed to look even better than the last. After our first viewing, we were concerned about it looking worn/tired/used by the time our wedding came round but it was quite the opposite - it was exceptional, got better and better with each visit, and still looked brand new on our day. Things we loved were that we wouldn’t need to rely on the outdoor space, but it was there should the british weather allow us to use it, and also how accessible it was for all of our guests who were travelling from Newcastle, London, Scotland, Wales - there was abundance of accommodation a 5 min drive away but yet the venue feels completely secluded and private. We didn’t want to get married in a huge stately home with acres of land but did want somewhere that felt exclusive and welcoming - and it was that and more. We also love the fact that regular foodie nights and events meant we could visit as many times as we wanted/needed to in the run up and also can continue to do so to keep this gorgeous venue part of our lives.

The team are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. They were the most helpful, positive, friendly girls throughout the planning process, set up, wedding day and day after. When people say “nothing was too much trouble” this has actually never been a truer statement about Letty, Abi, Kate and Emily, as well as Toz and the team on the day. If I sent an email asking how tall the cocktail glasses were or how long the tables were - I had an answer the same day… Even though we knew they were fully booked for weddings in the whole run up to ours, they made us feel like ours was the only one happening and whenever we saw anyone in the team they welcomed us like friends.

We got married on 1/4/23 and it really was the best day! SO many of our guests commented on how gorgeous the venue was, which I wasn’t expecting! If anything went wrong on the day, we weren’t aware of it, we felt like it couldn’t have been more perfect and it was chilled, gorgeous and loads of fun which is exactly what we’d hoped for. If we could do it all again we absolutely would, and would recommend anyone to choose this venue - you will NOT be disappointed!

Thank you TLB, we’ll be back soon 🤍

Amazing from Start to Finish!

Thirsk Lodge Barns had an open day to look around their premises to see if we would like our wedding there. We are SO glad we chose to book onto this as we put our name down for our wedding at TLB straight away! As soon as we turned up to the venue, we both knew it was more than beautiful, the staff that work at TLB are amazing and so accommodating and couldn't do more for you! The venue includes amazing accommodation for the guests too which was perfect for us, meaning waking up and getting ready for the big day was really easy and efficient. Once all our decor was ready the morning of the wedding, we knew it was the perfect choice for our big day, it looked better than we ever imagined! The whole weekend was hiccup free and the team were always on hand if you needed them, it really was perfect. Couldn't thank Thirsk Lodge Barns and the team enough for making our day as special as it were!

The Perfect Day

Letty and Will among with their team have created the most perfect space to get married. When we looked around Yorkshire for our special venue, TLB ticked all the boxes and literally had thought of everything. I walked away with no questions or hesitations. Having the ability to personalise the venue was a huge point we wanted to nail and the team couldn’t have been more helpful. Except me muddling up my vows, everything from the start of the booking process to waking up in the bridal suite the morning after were simply perfection

Our dream venue

Thirsk Lodge Barns was immediately the choice for us. We absolutely loved the venue from the moment we went there and were both so excited for our wedding day then.

The day before the wedding the team were so helpful and got stuck in helping us set up so we had as much time as possible to relax in the beautiful accommodation.

On the day of the wedding we couldn’t have asked for more from the team. Their attention to detail was incredible and they ensured that we didn’t have to worry about a thing.

We loved every second of our wedding weekend and that’s a credit to Letty and her team. We wish we could do it all again!

Perfection

We got married in July 2022 and we think about our wedding nearly every day. Our vision was a Mediterranean feel in Yorkshire and it was just that.
Letty and the team go above and beyond and think of every last detail. The venue, team and accommodation are just perfection. We cannot recommend this venue enough.

Simply amazing


Letty and team were amazing and went above and beyond to make sure we had the most magical day.
All the small touches and attention to details made the day run smoothly. Letty communicated everything that we needed know and be on.
Emily and Abby were especially hands on in making sure our family and friends were looked after.
Thank you all at Thirsk Lodge Barns!!

Best day of our lives THANK YOU

We could not be happier with our choice of venue. We booked it solely based on some sketches and the enthusiasm and professionalism of Letty and her team. The gamble paid off and then some!!! When the venue was finished WOW absolutely breathtaking. The team have thought of everything. Gorgeous relaxed and tasteful spaces. Wonderful and attentive staff - including in the run up to the day, the setting up the day prior and the day itself. We knew our day would be full of love and laughter but the venue and the staff really did make it something beyond what we could have ever dreamed. Everyone weeks later is still talking about the wedding saying it’s the best they have been to. The cottages to use the night before and the night of really add something special. The grounds are gorgeous for photos. The team have great ideas and recommendations to help make your day personal and exceptional. We will never forget our experience with Thirsk lodge barns and we wish we could do it all over again. You will not regret choosing this venue ! Thanks to Letty, Emily, Abi and the rest of the team, from the bottom of our hearts !!

Perfect doesn’t do this venue justice

My wife and I were married on 04/09/2021. When we first viewed Thirsk Lodge Barns it was a building site in the middle of development but after spending 10 minutes with Letty we knew this was our venue. We could tell instantly through Letty’s drive, passion, knowledge and attention to detail that she would deliver our perfect wedding. Despite our confidence on her and the venue we wouldn’t be able to comprehend how much better it would be than we had dreamed. Everything in the build and decor is of the highest quality and therefore has such an amazing flow and style throughout, the layout catered for all of our guests there was somewhere for everyone to be able to celebrate with us in their own way. The team were absolutely amazing from start to finish with the set up the day before right up until closing time. So attentive and so hard working we felt really looked after and our guests have since mentioned the same to us. The bar service and selection of drinks and cocktails were perfect for our tastes which again added to the day. I’ve been married 4 months now and guests still comment on how perfect it was when I see them which keeps our wedding buzz alive every time it’s brought up! Thank you so much to everyone at Thirsk Lodge Barns I’m sure you have many exciting years ahead of you and you deserve every bit of success!

Venue of dreams!

The most perfect wedding venue and team that we could ever have wished for. We would highly recommend to any couple looking for a wedding venue.

We ‘took a chance’ on TLB as we went to view the venue when it was still being built. Although not much to see on our first visit, we fell in love with the vision and plans that Letty showed us - we just knew it was going to be something special - and decided to go ahead and book for 2 years time! Once the venue was finished it was more beautiful than we could have imagined!

You can see from pictures how beautiful it is, but it’s the details that make the difference - firstly the layout is ideal for any day, it’s amazing to have different areas for different parts of the day. The main barn is stunning with the perfect modern-barn feel, and it was lovely to have the gorgeous dining room and courtyard as well with the bar joining everything together so it flows really well.

The team were amazing from start to finish, nothing was too much and everyone was so helpful and we felt like they couldn’t do more for us. The whole day and experience was made easy which is exactly what you want for your wedding day! Being able to stay in the on-site accommodation the night before and having the afternoon before to set up works really well. The accommodation is also SO beautiful and it’s clear every little detail has been thought out in the design!

We had loads of flexibility, everything we wanted the team could do for us - Pimms in the outside bar for the reception, pizza supplier gazebo set up in the evening - music timing, planning ideas, etc.

The coordination leading up to the day was fantastic and our guests commented on how helpful all of the team were on the day, and how beautiful the venue and accommodation was. I couldn’t recommend TLB enough.

I wish we could do it all again!

The most amazing venue!

I first viewed Thirsk Lodge Barns with wellies and a hard hat on and when the venue was still in the building process but from the moment I walked in, I knew it was the venue for us. I went home and told my husband to be that I found the dream venue and with only seeing pictures and describing it to him he was also sold.

From the start to finish, the team at Thirsk Lodge Barns were outstanding and no task or request was too big.

The day before the wedding the team were so helpful and got stuck in helping us set up and even baked a cake for me & my family to enjoy while we set up!!

The venue, team and accommodation were just out of this world! We cannot recommend this venue enough!

🖤✨🪩💍👰🏼‍♀️🤵🏻‍♂️🤍

We celebrated our wedding (and NYE) on 31st December 2022 at TLB. And everything about our day was SPECTACULAR 🤍🖤

We first visited in wellies and hard hats in December 2020, and were sold by Lettys vision and enthusiasm. When we visited again upon its opening - we weren’t disappointed. Every detail had been so well thought out and it really is a dream venue.

Throughout the planning process and on the day , nothing was too much trouble for any of the team! And we owe so much to Letty, Abi, Kate and co for making our wedding day so perfect. Both for us and for every single one of guests and suppliers, everyone commented on how flawless the venue and staff were. We really appreciated your calmness, helpfulness and wealth of knowledge throughout.

We loved every moment from the help setting up the day before, to the midnight fireworks (in the rain!), the little homely touches in the accommodation, to the jazziest ladies toilets, the VIP room and THAT bath tub in the laundry cottage.

Thank you again for making our wedding so unforgettable and congratulations to all the lucky couples that choose to get married at TLB in the future!

Laidback Luxury - Dream wedding

Thirsk Lodge Barns is what dreams are made of. My husband and I viewed the venue in September 2020 with hard hats on and muddy boots as it was still under construction, but we didn’t even need it to be built to know it was the one. It was just as they say – when you know, you know. Letty walked us around and told us the plans she had for the venue and her vision, which needless to say came 100% and completely true. We took the plunge and booked TLB for November 2022 based only off this and artistic impressions, the best decision we ever made. This was the catapult for the best wedding we could have ever dreamt of.
Every single detail from the portal, to the staff, to the venue itself has been acutely considered and perfected. During the planning of the wedding Letty and her team were always happy to answer our many questions and let us view the venue as many times as we needed. They offered advice and ideas, and worked with us to made our day just as we wanted it to be. They were also extremely flexible with any elements we wanted to incorporate and helped us with all logistics. Even last minute changes were welcomed and easily included.
On the day before, they helped calmed our nerves and get us ready for the day. They were genuinely excited for our day. On the day of the wedding the staff could not have been more helpful, things happened without us even realising – and even to this day I bet they managed so much that I didn’t even know about. I felt like a guest at my own wedding, we were so well looked after. Despite it only having weddings for just over a year before ours, everything ran like clockwork. The staff are clearly experienced and really do care about the couples.
The venue really is breath-taking, without going overboard I really do believe this is up there with the best venues in the country. It’s timeless but with all the modern adjustments that you might need.
I can honestly say that our wedding day at TLB was the best day of our lives, completely magical and a day I will never forget.
I feel so lucky to have been one of the first weddings at TLB, it was our dream wedding venue and you simply must have your day here. Thank you thank you thank you.
Lots of love to TLB x
