Staff were amazing on the day
We had our wedding reception here in January and it was fantastic!! We can't thank the team at Thornbury enough for making our day so special! Thank you so much to Charlotte for taking all of my emails and for making everything possible. The venue was beautiful and we were able to decorate it exactly as we wanted. The staff were amazing on the day, nothing was too much trouble and they were enjoying the day as much as we were. Huge compliments to the chef for the fantastic wedding breakfast! We had a lot of allergy requests and every single one of them was met perfectly! We still have family and friends say to us how fantastic the food was. Thank you so so much Thornbury for helping to make our wedding day completely perfect! I would definitely recommend to other couples looking for a wedding reception.

Wow! just Wow!
Wow! just Wow! From the very start the service provided by Nicola and the team at this venue was outstanding. As an older Bride I wasn't sure of how to arrange a wedding! I had no need to worry, from the very first meeting I knew I was in capable hands, the venue itself is so warm and inviting and all our guests of which there were a large number were catered for excellently. The staff and event organiser (Nicola and Charlotte) were outstanding on the day, helping me calm when a hiccup occurred. I would highly recommend this venue and just cant thank everyone involved enough. From the start to the finish of the day my husband and I had comments on what a fantastic venue we had chosen and how helpful and willing the staff were!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We had a Christmas themed winter wedding. It really was gorgeous, the wedding breakfast was set up with 9 round tables, each table was named after one of Santa's reindeer! The room was decorated with foliage, pinecones and holly. The bride's brother even read an extract from The Grinch during the ceremony (the part where his heart grows 3 sizes!) It was beautiful and very original.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan & book the big things first! You have plenty of time to sort out all of the little things, take care of the big things like the venue first and I promise it will be a lot less stressful!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Every wedding guest received a gingerbread man as a favor. They were laid out on the place settings during the wedding breakfast. That was something different I had never seen before!
