Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Kenyon, on 23 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2019

We got married on 28.12.19 in the Manor House and had the most perfect day ever. On the run up to the wedding we were in regular contact with all of the wedding coordinators all of which were an absolute dream to work with. On the day of our wedding everything went amazingly, they even let me set up a day early due to there being no wedding in the day before which was fantastic. Rooms we stayed in were fantastic and really in keeping with the character of the venue, would highly recommend the gate house to stay in the night before. The Manor House- WOW! Everyone commented on how stunning the venue was and if you get married at Christmas like we did it is fully decked out with gorgeous decorations and Christmas trees. Every member of staff I dealt with was just fantastic and nothing was too much for them. Thank you Thornton Manor for the most amazing, stress free wedding day.

The Manor House
Venue Service

By Faye Carmichael, on 02 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2019

From our initial viewing of the venue we knew this was the one for us. The venue speaks for itself and is just absolutely stunning. The staff were so incredibly kind, friendly and supportive from our first meeting to the final ta-ra’s the day following the wedding. They were so organised and nothing was too much to ask for. They put both myself and my husband at ease on the day, and it felt like having friends with us throughout. Our guests were blown away with the house and gardens, and how well kept it all is. If we could do it all over again we would, and we wouldn’t change a thing.

Worst Experience of My Life
Venue Service

By Choudhury, on 09 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2019

Thornton Manor staff/management inexperience, ignorance and unprofessionalism ruined our special day; We booked and paid almost £10,000 for the Thornton Manor Garden Marquee for our wedding. All we wanted was the perfect day for her. It was the complete opposite. A substantial amount of money was exchanged to hire a marquee surrounded by gardens. So you’d expect the best customer service and satisfaction. Absolutely NOT. We booked a Toast Master on the management’s advice, paid extra for his services. This was a total disaster, the microphone did not work. The sound system was poor. The best man, bridesmaid speeches were all ruined, the actual ceremony was ruined. All speeches/music/songs/announcements were not heard by any of our guests. The event supervisor did not have a backup plan, did not have a spare microphone, and did not care at all to be honest. It was a DISASTER. It was raining - so you do not get to take pictures in the gardens, waltz the gardens, view the gardens and you do not get any discount or sympathy from Thornton Manor. Birkenhead is a VERY RAINY place. Please consider probable weather conditions. I complained about the whole experience - however the management did not give a damn. Fell on deaf ears – very rude. They offered me £350 back for the toastmaster and said the event went well. Like hell it did - No remorse, No empathy, just £350 offered out of £10,000. I felt insulted; I told them to keep the money. I mean to rub salt in your wounds, is just an understatement. All Thornton Manor management care about is your money. Please seriously consider other venues before booking with this place for any event.

Thornton manor is the venue of my dreams
Venue Service

By Rachel Fallon, on 14 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2017

Where do I start, Thornton manor is the venue of my dreams, from the moment I saw the Manor House I knew it was the only wedding venue for us, the Music room is unbelievably stunning. All the staff at Thornton manor are amazing, nothing is ever too much trouble, they go above and beyond with everything. All the staff were professional, friendly, helpful and efficient. James and I visited Thornton Manor a number of times on the run up to our wedding, we were always made to feel incredible welcome, nothing was ever too much trouble. The wedding coordinators are amazing and made the planning process so easy and smooth. All the staff on the day were fantastic and everything ran perfectly. All our guests were overwhelmed with the Manor House. I stayed in the thatched pavilion the night before the wedding which was gorgeous. All the guest who stayed in the Manor House on our wedding night loved their rooms and the catering the following day. James and I can't thank everyone at Thornton Manor enough, you ready did make our wedding the most amazing day and I'd highly recommend Thornton Manor! Thank you so much James and Rachel
