In a time when we cannot do great things, do great things in a small way.
Thorpe Manor is for the discerning couple looking for somewhere private and truly unique to hold an intimate celebration of their marriage.
There are options for how you can stylishly and safely set up your intimate wedding day. There is the spacious and airy panelled Drawing Room, glamorous Dining Room, timeless Entrance Hallway and the cosy Bar for your closest confidants to celebrate and enjoy.
Instead of dancing the night way, spend the evening enjoying a longer dining experience. Tasting menus with a sommelier pairing the wines, sharing feasts and platters and why not involve some food theatre.
With only birdsong to interrupt the tranquillity in the mornings, you’ll enjoy complete peace whilst you enjoy breakfast in our beautiful English country kitchen which overlooks the formal gardens.
An intimate wedding at Thorpe Manor is truly unforgettable and the most special way to mark the beginning of a marriage.
