About Thornewood Castle

Thornewood Castle is a historic, waterfront wedding venue located in Lakewood, Washington. This unique 400-year-old castle was imported from Wales over 100 years ago. It’s constructed in the English Tudor Gothic style and is known as “the house that love built.” Thornewood Castle situated just south of Tacoma, offers both indoor and outdoor sites for your ceremony and reception on their three-acre estate.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can accommodate up to 200 guests at this vintage-style venue. They offer multiple diverse setting for your big day, which include:
Great Hall - features ornate Victorian sculptured ceilings, paneled walls, hardwood floors and original artwork. This beautiful ceremony site also boasts a dramatic, 500-year-old oak staircase. It’s perfect for making a grand entrance. Your future spouse can wait for you in front of their sandstone fireplace or 16th century stained glass windows.
Sunken English Garden - this “secret” space is surrounded by flowers, sculptures, antique brick walls and a fountain. A wall of hydrangeas or the magnificent castle will serve as your backdrop as you say your “i do's.”
American Lake - perfect for a waterfront ceremony.
Ballroom - ideal for an intimate reception. It features antique furniture, artwork and a gorgeous chandelier.
Lawn - perfect for an outdoor reception with the American Lake as your backdrop.

    My daughter and her husband were married in the sunken, secret garden, followed by a cocktail hour on the front lawn, dinner lakeside, dancing inside the castle, followed by sparkler send-off. The venue is just gorgeous and the experienced staff were top notch to work with. A wonderful experience from initial walk-thru, throughout the planning process to the actual event. It was whimsical, sophisticated and magical. Highly recommended.

    This is a beautiful venue! I loved that we would have a gorgeous ceremony - rain or shine! It was nice weather for the ceremony - but clouded up and rained a bit later. We still got incredible photos. The staff is very friendly and worked to make sure that the entire day fit our vision.

    The entire wedding party stayed at the castle that night. Everyone raved about the rooms. A couple of our guests have food allergies and Thornewood accommodated them easily - and their food was delicious, too!

    We highly recommend Thornewood Castle and are looking forward to returning for our anniversary!
