My husband and I absolutely loved Bristow Manor from the moment we saw it. It is such a romantic, elegant setting and we loved the aspect of having access to the manor house, attached reception hall with the beautiful lights, and the outdoor space. It truly was a 3 in 1! Bettina was such an amazing wedding coordinator and made us feel so much more relaxed about the little details that go into planning a wedding. She has a ton of experience and gave us amazing advice and recommendations throughout, while at the same time really trying to understand and carry out our vision.Sent on 08/16/2018

Great All Inclusive Venue.
Bristow Manor was the perfect venue for my southern rustic chic wedding. Bettina was an amazing wedding coordinator and truly brought my vision to life.

Bristow Manor is a wonderful venue. The staff there is a pleasure to work with. Everything is on time and it makes the DJ's job so much easier to coordinate the event. I strongly recommend Bristow Manor to anyone getting married. Bobby G of Bobby G's Disc Jockeys.
A traditional manor house that has been upgraded to a modern feel. This venue is perfect for the bride and/or groom looking for an elegant affair with a picturesque countryside backdrop.
