When I was first looking at Venues, I kept coming back to Thistlewood Manor. They did almost everything in-house and it was lovely. The Manor itself is gorgeous: the detail that they have put into the manor and gardens is phenomenal. Seeing it online did not do the grounds justice. It felt like I was […]
I wouldn’t change anything about my wedding and that was in large part because of Thistlewood

I loved the flexibility of the ceremony options (indoor or outdoor) and the grounds were lovely. I had both my ceremony and reception here.

Not only did Tricia make amazing food, but went out of her way to accommodate our non traditional wedding. Leslie was more than helpful every step as the months and weeks passed by. Most brides are stressed the week of and the day of, I didn’t have that experience because of them.
