    Highly recommend!

    The venue: My wedding had about 135 and seemed like the perfect number. For a Nov wedding, Birkby still had trees with leaves that fell late so we still had a variety of fall colors in the backdrop. Birkby has a homey comfortable feeling with the cottage house, gazebo and other garden space, and the reception tent. The tent, with the lights, is so beautiful. When I asked a cousin for wedding pictures, she had about 15 of just the lighting. Good thing we had an actual photographer! The house has several rooms for the cocktail hour for the guestbook, gifts, and other neat hangout spots as well as a pair of restrooms. There are another pair of restrooms by the tent. The upstairs has a bridal and grooms suite. Bridal suite is large and my wife and her ladies loved it. The grooms suite is cozy with a TV, couch, and fridge--all you really need. The 2nd floor also has two porches that look out to the rest of the venue. Great photo ops! Had the viewing with Carleigh--absolutely fantastic and super friendly that we decided to go with her and Kristin (Simply Royal Events) for our wedding coordinators. It felt like a huge advantage having them coordinate since they knew the place inside and out and knew most, if not all, of our vendors. They were quick to respond and adjust to all of our last minute changes and updates. They were all over the place (in the best way possible) from beginning to end as in they had everything organized and made sure people/things were in place and yet were also very available for any questions or comments I or the bride had the day of. The wedding transitions happened so swiftly that I hardly saw any of it happen. Vendors: The Birkby House has an open house every spring and invites their preferred caterer and vendors. Definitely check this out if you are interested in or planning on having an event/wedding at Birkby. There are a lot of local vendors present, some who don't really have the publicity as other vendors that may have hundreds of reviews. For example, we went with local photographers Steve and Bernadette Dalgetty and even though we haven't received the pictures yet, they were such a charm to work with. We did go with their partner caterer Tuskies and that couldn't have gone any better. ALL the food during our wedding was phenomenal from hor d'oeurves to entrees--best wedding food ever (said no one ever but I'm serious, Tuskies was amazing!) Not only was the food great but also Neal was so fun and easy to work with. I truly think the triple threat of Neal, Carleigh, and Kristin was the reason why my wedding went so smoothly or at least appeared like it ran smoothly haha. Misc: Other perks to the venue, there's a large public parking lot behind the venue that is really only used as a commuter lot during the week so it was fully available for guests. It's in downtown Leesburg so it's a great spot to check out a local bar if you come early. But speaking of downtown.. The con: Since the venue is in downtown Leesburg near residents, there was one resident who complained and called the cops multiple times. There's a noise curfew at 10pm which is when the wedding ends anyway but he complained well before 9pm. I'm sure this happens quite often, it has to being in such a residential area, and while it was annoying having to deal with a disgruntled neighbor on your wedding night, the cops really seemed to care less. The cops said as long as the coordinators had the permit (which they did), the noise was fine.

    Love Love Love this place

    This is 100% the venue I had envisioned when planning the type of place I wanted to get married but the staff made it even better than imagined. Carleigh was great answering any and all questions about the venue and Neal was so on top of things for catering (and the food actually was amazing!). The getting ready space is SO nice, especially for hair and make-up. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone!

  • The Edge Photography Wedding Photographers

    The folks at Thomas Birkby House are true professionals with a unique property surrounded by wonderful photo locations. It's a convenient and great location for your wedding. One of our favorite venues.

  • Bellwether Events Wedding Planners

    The Thomas Birkby House is my favorite venue in Virginia. Ron, Judy and Mary Louise take pride in their property, and don't view it as a wedding factory, like other venues do. They are really invested in each event, making sure that the client has a great experience, and assisting the vendors who come through their doors. I can't recommend the Thomas Birkby House highly enough for your next event.
