The Perfect Wedding Venue!

To say the venue knocked our socks off is an understatement. When we learned that this beautiful space existed we were excited beyond belief.

Of course, we weren't the least bit disappointed by the experience and would recommend Thorpe Garden to anyone who asks. From the moment we arrived and saw how stunning the place was we knew it was the one. Our wedding celebration took place, May 2024.

The staff members worked incredibly hard throughout to ensure no detail was spared and everything was just as we had asked for (and imagined it would be). We both want to extend our sincerest thanks, from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special and everything we had hoped it would be.

Everything about this venue is perfect. It's unique, beautiful and the food is incredible.

We may be biased, but Thorpe Garden is one of the most beautiful wedding venues we have seen.

Everything about Thorpe is perfect.

The service and communication has been incredible through the whole process, starting from our very first viewing. Ourselves and our guests commented on how gorgeous the venue looked on the wedding day, and we hardly needed to add any flowers or decorations (but a big shout out to Tara Knott our stylist and Ivison Lichfield Florist for adding those special extra touches). Thorpe Garden is the perfect venue for any type of weather, something we needed to consider for a British Spring time! The inside areas are breathtaking, with gorgeous large windows to give you that feel of being outside, and the outside areas are equally as beautiful. We were lucky enough that the rain held off for our wedding day so we could all enjoy the scenery and the well kept gardens.

The food at Thorpe Garden was definitely one of the highlights of our day, and something our guests still talk about now! The quality of the food service was excellent and I felt very confident that all of our guests' dietary requirements were taken care of. The open kitchen and outdoor pizza oven added that little unique touch and some of our guests enjoyed watching the chefs hard at work.

I would recommend Thorpe Garden to anyone getting married! It is a beautiful, stylish venue with a cool, informal vibe, all the while maintaining high standards and professional service. I really hope we are able to attend another gorgeous wedding at Thorpe Garden in the future!

Absolutely everything from start to finish was fantastic for our wedding day at Thorpe Garden! The staff were amazing and attentive on the day to help everything go smoothly but also responsive and flexible in the lead up to the day.

Highly recommend!

We had our wedding here Easter weekend 2024 and it was entirely perfect! The grounds were beautiful and the blossom trees made great photos.
Everything was easy and we felt well catered for, no request felt too much and the staff were highly accommodating.
The venue is so gorgeous, fairy lights everywhere in the yurt, which meant we didn't have to waste money on lots of decorations.
The food was incredible, we went with the rotisserie chicken which was delicious and the portion sizes were great. We actually had guests say it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Vegans and vegetarians were well catered for too.
Lee was our coordinator on the day, he made us feel completely calm and at ease which was great.
The team took care of all the set up which was guided by a set of instructions I typed up, this made me feel extremely stress free in the morning. They also collected all of our belongings and stored them in one place for us to easily collect in the morning.
A couple of other bonus points included the make up house on site which me and the bridesmaids used to get ready in as well as Constantine House which has 21 bedrooms and a lovely open space to have breakfast together the next day.

Spring Wedding

Back in February 2023, my partner and I met with Lee at Thorpe Garden, instantly fell in love with the venue and booked our wedding day there and then. Since that day, we’ve had absolutely no regrets as the staff have made each step of the journey so smooth and helped us to create our perfect day.

In the lead up to the wedding, the staff worked with us to answer any questions and ensure that our wishes and requests were catered to. On the day of the wedding itself, they worked with us and our families to create a magical day. The venue is so incredibly beautiful and really allows for a relaxed yet sophisticated occasion. We were so lucky to get brilliant sunshine and enjoyed the trees in blossom but, upon visiting the venue in any season, were in awe of how beautiful it looked.

We feel so lucky to have celebrated at Thorpe Garden and wish we could relive the day over and over again.

Can’t recommend this place enough!

My wedding day was amazing, I couldn’t fault it at all and that’s because of the staff at Thorpe Garden. They really looked after us throughout our wedding planning, any questions or concerns we had they were more than happy to help us. Our day ran so smooth because of how they looked after us and made sure everything was done exactly how we wanted. Cara did a fantastic job being the venue coordinator for our special day-big shoutout to you and Lee for giving us a stress free day. I can’t recommend this venue enough, our guests couldn’t stop talking about it. Oh also the food was amazing!!! I really could go on and on but thank you fantastic job you guys.

Just amazing!

Thorpe were fantastic from the moment we first visited, through the planning process and beyond our wedding day. They went out of their way to create the day we dreamed of and more. Our questions and queries were answered straight away and any issues resolved.

Our day ran incredibly smoothly and the food was fantastic! We can’t thank Thorpe enough and our guests had the BEST time too! Thorpe is such a beautiful venue and we fell in love with the yurt straight away!

Thank you so much!

The Best Day Ever!

This venue gave us the best wedding we could ever ask for and more. The day ran very smoothly and the staff were incredible. The food was amazing! We had our ceremony and reception in the Yurt and the breakfast in the Pavilion. I would recommend this venue to anyone and I wish we could go back and do it again!

Everything we wanted and more!!

This wedding venue caters for all, the kids spent all day outside playing with lawn games, the beautiful grounds and outdoor seating were amazing for socialising and the yurt was more than big enough for drinking and dancing. The staff were friendly and so helpful, the feast was delicious and brownie was unreal.
This venue made our day perfect and everyone said how beautiful it was. Thank you so much to all the team at Thorpe Garden ❤️

Wedding experience of dreams!

Thorpe Gardens gave us the most beautiful wedding day! From the moment we first met with the team we knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. The venue is stunning and a walled garden and dreamy yurt full of fairy lights. The day went by so smoothly and the team thought of every detail. We did not have to worry about a thing! They thought of such thoughtful touches like encouraging us to have a private moment together after the ceremony which was one of my favourite moments of the day. Cara and Lee were our wedding coordinators and they could not have been more of professional and thoughtful. I would recommend this venue to everyone!

Wedding couldn't have been any better

There are too many good things to say about Thorpe Garden and its staff. They were incredibly accommodating to us, making our wedding as stress-free as possible, and they did all they could to give us a perfect day. We've both said it's shame we can't do it all over again!

Perfect venue !!

As soon as we saw the venue we knew it was the one.. we fell in love with it. We met Tom there who was absolutely lovely and very enthusiastic. He was there from start to finish, so helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. The day was amazing, all the guests commented on how beautiful and unique the venue was. The food was fit for a king.. absolutely tasty and large portion sizes. The day could not have ran any smoother as the staff were so attentive! It was so perfect we want to do it all over again !!!
We would highly recommend Thorpe Garden to anyone getting married !!

Best day of my life!

The team at Thorpe Garden could not have been more helpful from our first viewing to the big day, we were confident that we were in the safest hands.

We had a couple of unusual requests that they were incredibly helpful in accommodating and some extra hands were required in the morning to ensure the styling was perfect. My breath was taken away when I walked through those curtains and down the aisle - I was promised by Cara that it would be beautiful and it defied all of my expectations.

I honestly couldn't recommend Thorpe Garden and the team highly enough. Every single one of our guests said it was the most beautiful venue they'd seen, the best food they'd eaten and the most attentive staff.

We even had rave reviews from our vegan guests, who were impressed by the vegan meal options during the day and in the evening.

We just want to come back to do it all over again!

Perfect wedding venue

From the minute we arrived at Thorpe Garden we knew it would be a strong contender for our wedding venue. The walled gardens are stunning, especially in full bloom and also the grounds are so spacious for guests to spread out and socialise. Tom and his team were great from the start, responding quickly to messages and answering every question we had leading up to the day (there were many!). On the day the service from the whole team was exceptional, we couldn't have asked for more. The food was amazing too, I had high expectations and they were certainly met. I would recommend Thorpe Garden to anyone without hesitation. It was our dream venue!
