Wedding Venue Pick: Thornton Hough Manor (England)
There is something captivating about Thornton Manor. Perhaps it’s the location: nestled just outside the picturesque village of Thornton Hough in the Cheshire countryside. Perhaps it’s the architecture: built in the Arts and Crafts movement with hints of Tudor influence with a multitude of stunning spots to capture those oh-so-important wedding photos. Or perhaps it’s because there is something so quintessentially English about the venue that you can’t help but fall in love with it. I suspect it’s a combination of all these factors why so many brides in the North West of England dream of saying “I do” within these walls.
I am particularly fortunate in living just a few miles from this venue, and can honestly say that pictures do not do it justice. The building and grounds are prized – it is a treasure of British heritage, and the custodians treat it with the upmost respect. Originally built as the home for William Hesketh Lever, philanthropic owner of the Unilever Soap Factory and founder of the iconic Port Sunlight Village just a few miles away, the building is now run as an independent hotel.
Hosting your wedding here is no budget affair, but it is by no means overpriced. When choosing to host your wedding here, you are able to offer your guests top-notch accommodations, superb chef-crafted cuisine, and excellent service. The interior exceeds expectations, and has been carefully preserved with mod-cons sensitively incorporated into the existing rooms. It offers all the convenience of a hotel wedding with the style and finesse of a luxurious private residence. And, you are not just limited to having a traditional inside ceremony and wedding breakfast – the extensive grounds offer the possibility of a wedding by the lake and a reception under the stars in a marquee with a 400 person capacity. This venue really is what dreams are made of.
