Facilities and Capacity
This venue can host up to 220 guests for a weekend wedding celebration, focused on a single wedding per weekend. The estate staff aims to craft a weekend where guests participate in a party instead of remaining stationary as in a standard wedding reception. The rehearsal dinner can be held indoors in the elegant conservatory or outdoors by the cozy Fire Pit, with an emphasis on introducing guests. The ceremony can be held in the Manor’s Side Garden or in the Conservatory, two beautiful and romantic spaces. Each reception and after-party is colored by touches of decor tailored to each couple’s style and season. With dessert and hot beverages served in multiple locations, guests are encouraged to explore and enjoy the manor while mingling in a party atmosphere. The weekend will wrap up with a farewell breakfast.
For your wedding celebrations at Lord Thompson Manor, the staff can take care of event planning, organizing event rentals, setup, and cleanup. On-site items available include tables, chairs, linens, china, glassware, flatware, and audio-visual equipment. Parking and shuttle services are available on-site for the convenience of couples and guests. Additionally, the KISS Spa is available for pampering and relaxation in the Cottage House, less than a mile from the estate.
The on-site chefs exclusively focus on one couple’s customized dining plans each week. Themed rehearsal dinners set a party spirit, while the reception on the big day covers passed and stationary hors d’oeuvres with a plated chef’s dinner. The after-party offers five-foot-long sandwiches, a hot dog stand, or a variety of tempting snacks. The farewell breakfast will show creative touches to put a final finish on wedding weekend dining.
On-site accommodation is readily available at this venue, with six beautifully-furnished overnight guest rooms featuring Ralph Lauren decor.

The wonderful people at this beautiful venue far exceeded our expectations in their sincere devotion to making the wedding an extraordinary event for the principles and all for each of the guests. So many of our guests have made a point of telling us how amazed they were by the thoughtfulness and artfulness of the people working at Lord Thompson. Throughout the process everyone there took remarkable time and care over every detail --and they took PLEASURE in making everything beautiful and meaningful. The entire weekend was a joy --start to finish, full of sweet care, elegance and genuine commitment. We all felt a personal and truly lovely investment in the event from everyone at Lord Thompson. I can hardly thank them enough.Sent on 07/24/2019

I'm not sure any review can do this venue and staff justice, not only is the actual venue stunning, the staff accommodates every need, detail, guest, vendor and vision for an entire weekend. Having the capacity to stay at the manor and cottage house, host the rehearsal and Sunday brunch at the same location and provide gorgeous florals throughout as well as catering courtesy of the amazing Chef Mike as well as hair and makeup by Pricilla makes this venue outshine any other.
We cannot thank Jackie, Andrew, Ted, Kate, Danielle, Chef Mike and Pricilla enough for an absolutely incredible experience. They allowed us to really enjoy every minute of the weekend. This was more than we could have ever dreamed of and cannot say enough about the entire staff who put our wedding together flawlessly.
A special thank you to Ted who is beyond impressive, knowledgeable and goes above and beyond, even creating our floral arch himself, while showing such hospitality to every single guest. Highly, highly recommend.

A magical experience that just can not be described! Excellent Atmosphere, Amazing Staff, Gourmet Food, just a one stop venue with a floral designer who will make the manor glow with excellence. The most knowledgeable planners out there. I can not rave enough about how special everyone made us feel and how you end up leaving as family. The grounds are gorgeous- wonderful for pictures. To this day, guests are raving about how fantastic our wedding day was. My best friend said it best, "well I might as well decline every wedding I am invited to from now on because nothing could top this!" Pure perfection!Sent on 05/16/2018
I love Lord Thompson Manor so much..I got married there myself! I am a wedding photographer and seriously folks, Jackie & her staff are playing on a whole different level when it comes to wedding day details. I've seen everything, photographed everywhere. They are second to NONE. You will never want to leave the place.
At The Lord Thompson Manor, the staff, the service, the setting itself all work in harmony to create the kind of wedding couples dream of. I had the honor to officiate for a couple married there last year and will officiate again for another couple soon. As delighted as I am, I can just imagine how thrilled couples are to know they can trust the details of their special day to the owners of such a competent and caring venue.
