Let us take the effort out of your wedding day, so you can genuinely enjoy the splendour of the surroundings – from photographs on the immaculate lawns, to pitch-perfect cuisine in an opulent dining room, to a splendid ball in the Tudor Hall and a luxurious night in a giant four-poster bed.
Thornbury Castleis is secluded and tucked away in its extensive private estate, yet within easy reach of the M4, M5 and Bristol.
With gorgeous landscaped grounds and ancient walled kitchen garden, not to mention the architectural splendour of the Castle itself – this is a place of great romance, infused with a sense of history.
Thornbury Castle has 26 unique bedchambers for you and your guests, ideal for preparing for (and recovering from) the big day. All of the bedchambers are regally decorated and appointed to the highest standard.
Thornbury Castle is renowned for its cuisine, with our award-winning chef conjuring up mouth-watering dishes using the best quality – mostly locally sourced – ingredients.
Finally, our wedding planning team are genuine experts. They know the venue inside out and can guide you through every step of the way, whether you are organising an intimate family affair, or a grand feast and a no-holds-barred ball in the great hall.
We chose Thornbury Castle because of the wonderful location and had the whole wedding package, meaning we had full use of the castle for 24hrs. All rooms were allocated to our guests by myself and it was fun trying to match the fabulous rooms with each guest. The rooms are all magnificent in their own right, many with four posters and an amazing Honeymoon suite.
After arriving at the Castle we had a Pimm's and canape reception in the garden, while the Bride and Groom had numerous photographs taken. Everyone relaxing and mingling with other guests.
Later we moved into a marquee which we had to have for the Wedding Breakfast as there was 100 of us and the Tudor Hall only sits 70. The Bride and Groom were welcomed in and we all sat down to a wonderful, beautifully presented and flavoursome 3 course meal. Marco in charge made sure all the food was ready at the same time for each table, waiters and waitresses then came out together. Each table was served precisionally and placed infront of each guest at the same time. Top table being served first of course. Compliments to the Chef and his team as we couldn't find a fault with the whole meal. Thank you.
We later moved into the Tudor Hall for the evening party, welcoming our guests in to the Hall where the wedding cake was then cut. Later we had an evening buffet, which was to beautifully presented and served by a waitress.
To watch our daughter and new son-in-law enjoying themselves so much, made us feel so proud that we were able to give them a wedding day to remember. I know all the guests will too, as so many have already said, from their fabulous rooms, to the whole atmosphere. Can we do it again? Wish we could, thanks to all staff at the castle in making this wedding so spectacular.
Jenny the Wedding co-ordinate saw us through the whole process with a few meetings and many e mails and phone calls, but she was always so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. She made us feel our daughter's wedding day was special, not just another wedding.
All guests that stayed in all the rooms met up for breakfast the next morning, even the Bride and Groom! It was lovely that we could all be together the following day and many stories were in the air.
We had a whale of a time, thank you from my husband and I for such a treasured memory we shall always have.
I am glad the guests room cards helped with the check-in procedure which I supplied. Receptionists were brilliant and everyone was allocated their room as quick as possible. Having everyone arrive at the same time is not easy, but it all seem to run very smoothly.
The hotel and grounds are lovely and the staff are very helpful. I was introduced by Mark Veal the Head Chef to Luke and Mario who I must say were fantastic. Nothing was to much trouble for them through out the whole day.
The food was out of this world cook to perfection by Mark and his highly experienced brigade of chefs. We had parfait to start followed by Carvery of local pork and local 31 day matured sirloin of beef. Then rhubarb crumble and then a cream tea with hot fresh from the oven scones.
In the evening we had a great disco and buffet again the most fantastic food. When we all went to our stunning suites to unwind we had under floor heating in our bath room walk in shower and a lovely bath too. Then got in to our four poster bed with luxurious duck down duvet and pillows. We have never been so warm and comfortable plus the log fire helped.
The following morning we went with the rest of the bridle party to the restaurant for a fantastic breakfast with fresh pastries, fruit, cereals, meats etc. Followed by a wonderful cooked breakfast. My wife had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Our friend had eggs Benedict and it too was lovely. Would recommend the Castle to anyone it truly is a magical experience.
