    Winter Wedding & Sardines

    A wedding at anytime can be a stressful affair, but during a Pandemic and the will it won’t it go ahead, adds another layer of stress.
    The staff at Tofte Manor could not have made things easier with clear, precise communication and assistance.
    The Manor is a delightful, quirky venue for a wedding, the log fires in every room making it especially atmospheric and cosy.
    We stayed the night before the wedding, just my daughter and close family and friends. That was such a special evening, playing Sardines, charades and sharing a lovely casual dinner.
    A prelude to the magic of the wedding day.
    I imagine in the summer months the Manor would be even more magical.

    The most beautiful hidden retreat

    We planned a winter wedding, with fireplaces and a relaxed coziness at its core; Tofte Manor is exactly that.
    Fireplaces in almost every room, classically decorated rooms with a plethora of art books, trinkets and history.
    Suzy and Amy couldn’t do enough to help us and facilitate our vision.
    Tofte was only the second place we viewed and immediately knew it was the place we wanted to get married.
    I just wish we could go back!

    We loved Tofte as soon as we saw it

    Thank you so much for giving us the best wedding we could have wished for. We loved Tofte as soon as we saw it on our first viewing, it is a beautiful house and stunning grounds.
    You were absolutely fantastic and put up with all of our questions from beginning to end! Your professionalism meant we could relax and enjoy our day, but you were so welcoming that we felt instantly at home. Our guests also loved Tofte and were extremely complimentary.
    Thank you again

    Our weekend was perfect!

    My partner and I got married here over the weekend (04.08.18). I cannot express how wonderful the whole experience was. When we first went to Tofte for an open day we knew it was the place we wanted to get married. Audrey has always been such a support and so phenomenal. She really made our weekend and took so many stresses away from us. She really cared, and that was so wonderful. We hired the venue out for the whole weekend which made our day feel so special and not part of a revolving door venue. The location is stunning. And if you do chose this magical place for an event, please use Kate Davies as a photographer. What a woman! Kate, also helped Audrey out during the course of the weekend and they made the best team. All of our needs were taken care of, usually before I even realised I needed something.

    I cannot thank everyone at Tofte enough. Our weekend was perfect and that was thanks to you ?
