Located in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, Brandywine Manor House is a circa 1740 wedding and event venue. Situated in the heart of beautiful Chester County, Pennsylvania, this stunning estate carries centuries of history. This property was home to one of the first grist and sawmills, and this milling lasted into the 19th century. The year 1740 saw the original log house being converted into the home it is today. This property's narrative also intertwines with Forks of the Brandywine Presbyterian Church. The grave of James Mackelduff, the earliest owner of the land, can be found at the church's cemetery. In 1984, Dr. and Mrs. Gordon Eck purchased the farm and restored the property. In the year 2002, Brandywine Manor House held its first wedding ceremony and reception. Many more weddings took place over the following eight years. After suffering a house fire, the property was again rebuilt and renovated. Over the next few years, various additions were made, including the rehoming of a 1794 barn on the estate. Still family-owned and -operated, this destination is meticulously cared for and offers pristine grounds for a beautiful celebration.

Enchanting Venue at First Sight, Magical Wedding Day
We had our eyes on 3 venues, and when we visited BMH on a very frigid January morning, we were blown away. We knew right away that this was the place we wanted. It was beautiful even in the wintertime. Our wedding was late September 2019, and the foliage was in its full glory. We picked the Garden Terrace for our ceremony to accommodate the older guests and high heels, but you can choose from about 5 different sites on the property, and they're all BEAUTIFUL. We worked with many of their recommended vendors (they have a good assortment of caterers, DJs, photographers, make-up people, and florists for different needs), which I highly recommend doing, because they all work so well together in scheduling and communication. Not to mention, services have been vetted, so you know you'll get quality. Once we experienced all our hard work in planning, Aimee and all our vendors delivered beautifully, were so responsive, and helpful! The venue was beyond magical! It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect. We still have family and friends talking about how beautiful everything was. Also, all your photographs will be amazing. I was still on cloud nine weeks after.Sent on 11/20/2019

A Magical Evening We Will Never Forget
There are no words to describe how wonderful our experience with BMH was!! This is a GORGEOUS venue and the team that manages the whole operation is FANTASTIC. We worked with Meg and she was a dream. She made the day go by so flawlessly and she also made sure that I was stress free. From the beginning, the staff at BMH was on top of each and every detail. Everything came together so beautifully in the end and we cannot be happier!!Sent on 08/14/2019

Outstanding venue for Weddings and Significant celebrations. The grounds, ballroom and barn is the best in Chester County and definitely one of the most beautiful. Before you book a venue you need to tour this facility and do it early, it books up fast and often.
