About

15 to 200 Guests

Set in the heart of Sherwood Forest, surrounded by untouched natural beauty, Thoresby Park offers one of North Nottinghamshire’s most impressive wedding locations.

Civil ceremonies and receptions take place in the dramatic setting of the Victorian Riding Hall. The gorgeous barn-style space has been beautifully restored, with soaring arched ceiling, rustic beams, red brick walls, fairy lights and superb wooden floor. The hall can accommodate 150 guests for dinner on round tables or 180 guests on straight tables and up to 200 for your evening reception.

The new addition of the secret garden escape at the rear of The Riding Hall offers the perfect private garden for your drink’s reception, with endless possibilities for outdoor entertainment. No matter the weather the open garden has a large canopy for shade from the sun.

Beyond the garden the estate and woodland give you endless photographic opportunities. Thoresby Park is also available for marquee weddings, Woodland ceremonies or any ideas involving the great outdoors, giving you the opportunity to make the most of the picturesque surroundings.

Beyond the fabulous setting and fantastic facilities, the dedicated team of wedding coordinators are the real key to the venue’s success. They will be on hand to create a bespoke wedding that is unique to you, offering a flexible approach to all areas of your day. They will go the extra mile to ensure all your requirements are met, working with their extensive list of industry professionals, to help create your dream wedding in the flexible space.

Thoresby Park is protected by The Stonebridge Trust, a charitable trust working to preserve its listed buildings and park. By getting married there, you will not only be supporting their work but creating memories in a truly special place that you will be able to revisit for years to come.

    Guests all commented how amazing the venue looked!

    Amanda and the team were brilliant. Our daughter's wedding went beautifully yesterday, the staff on the bar were amazing, even providing the jaded mother of the bride a perfect pick me up when I began to flag.
    The guests all commented how amazing the venue looked, and what a brilliant thing to hold the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening disco in the one place.

    The interior of the riding hall is stunning...

    I can not recommend Thoresby Weddings enough! Our wedding day was completely perfect ??
    Staff were incredibly helpful, nothing was too much, and everything so seamless on the day! They communicated just the right amount and were able to answer all of our questions.
    The interior of the riding hall is stunning, perfect for a rustic wedding, with brickwork, huge wooden beams and beautiful big windows. The grounds topped everything off with endless places to go for couple and group photographs.
    It’s now such a special place for us both. We have just had our first year anniversary and purposefully came back to walk around the grounds of Thoresby to celebrate.

    Thank you to all the Thoresby Team!

    Thank you to all the Thoresby Team who helped us with our wedding. The venue looked beautiful and help was on hand if we needed it. The day ran smoothly from start to finish and this is down to the great organisation and professionalism of the team. Before the wedding we had different meetings which and email exchange when needed and this helped us feel more at ease. All we can say is a big thank you to you all once again.

    The service we received was outstanding

    The team were amazing from start to finish, we had planned our wedding for 4 years and the team at Thoresby had been planning with us every step of the way!

    The service we received was outstanding throughout the planning and on the day, we are sat here wishing we could do it all again.

    We can’t thank the team at Thoresby enough for what they did to make our day extra special!

    Lots of Love

    The team at Thoresby were incredible!

    They were so welcoming, accommodating and professional. We could not have asked for a better service than the one they provided. All throughout the run up to our wedding day, they offered every ounce of help that we required and were very very good, everything we needed explaining was explained, we like to think that thanks to their help, we were able to stay as organised and calm as we did. Come the day of our wedding we were blown away, the venue looked outstanding, they had taken our simple ideas and made them look truly magical, they really looked after us and all of our guests and we will be forever grateful to them for that, even when we went to collect all our belongings a couple of days later, we could tell they were busy, yet the team still went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful wedding day and helped us gather our stuff! thank you Thoresby Weddings team, never change.

    We are very proud to be a Thoresby Bride and Groom

    The amazing thing about Thoresby Courtyard and Riding Hall is how flexible literally everything is, from how to decorate the venue, to the catering you can choose, to the drinks you can have! And of course we were able to have our fireworks! This isn't a 'flat pack wedding' on a convey-a-belt where every wedding there looks the same. The hall really is a blank canvas to do as much or as little as you want with it.

    From the moment we met Amanda at the open day I knew we could completely trust that she would ensure our wedding went without a hitch, and give it as much attention and energy as her own wedding! I always plan everything within an inch of its life, and even I was impressed by her organisation and attention to detail in the whole process. You are able to do as much or as little as you want, and Amanda will help and advise you all the way.
