About Birkby House

The Birkby House is a historic mansion in the greater Washington, D.C. area where couples can host a classic wedding. This mansion of bricks features numerous beautiful locations where couples can marry, including a white gazebo, a delicate tented space, and a stone-paved patio. This venue, located in the Northern Virginia area, is approximately a 45-minute drive to Arlington National Cemetery.

Facilities and Capacity
This lovely mansion venue, set upon a garden landscape, welcomes up to 200 guests for a couple’s big day. The brick facade of this house, with black shutters and white accents, makes a charming backdrop for wedding portraits or a ceremony. Couples can choose to hold their ceremony under the shade of the white gazebo or on the patio laid with stone underfoot. Shrubbery surrounds both of these romantic locations and the mansion is visible from either option. Receptions can then take place in the Birkby House’s grand flowing tent. This tent, made of delicate and airy fabric, features a paved flooring with bricks and cement, with a black and white checkerboard tile dance floor. Sparkling crystal chandeliers overhead add a touch of class to this space. The tent also offers open side spaces or plastic windows to let in natural light. The draped fabric overhead and all around makes for graceful wedding photographs.

Services Offered
The staff at this venue offers services to make couples feel like guests at their own wedding. These services allow them to sit back and relax, rather than fret over the details, large or small. Couples, who can use this venue for their bridal shower and engagement party in addition to their ceremony and reception, will find the following services and event items at the Birkby House:

  • Altar/arches
  • Audio equipment
  • Bridal suite
  • Chairs
  • Dance floor
  • Event rentals
  • Parking
  • Setup
  • Tables
  • Tents


Other Facilities
A bridal suite and groom’s suite are available for couples to use on the top floor of this historic mansion. The Bride’s Salon features a full-length mirror and closet tall enough for a wedding dress. A private bathroom and separate porch overlooking the gardens are also attached to this room. The Groom’s Suite includes a board room and sitting room with a private bathroom.

    Amazing venue!

    Birkby House was such a charming place to get married! We loved not only the venue, but also the staff! Carleigh made getting ready for the wedding a breeze and was great at responding quickly. It rained on our wedding, but the staff was super helpful and we were still able to get married outside. The day ran smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about anything. We loved having our wedding at Birkby and are so thankful we had such a great team to make it all happen!

    A gorgeous, turn-key venue with amazingly supportive staff

    My husband and I got married this past weekend and Birkby was the absolute perfect venue which fit all of our needs. We were able to get ready separately with our bridesmaids and groomsmen in the beautiful upstairs rooms of the house, have our ceremony in front of the carriage house, and party it up in the gorgeous tent. Our friends couldn't stop gushing about the beautiful space, too! Being located in downtown Leesburg means hotels and bars are not too far away. Everything about the venue was turnkey, so picking Birkby House was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. If you love good food, Birkby works with some of the best caterers in the Loudoun County area (Tuscarora Mills and Magnolias). Carleigh was also a pleasure to work with and responded very quickly to all of my requests through email. She checked in on us throughout the day of the wedding and helped make sure everything was going smoothly - she is so laid back! Our pictures are so beautiful with the house as a perfect backdrop. Thank you!!!

    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
    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.
