Thornton Manor is an exclusive wedding venue in Cheshire. Set in 120 acres, it was first built in the 19th Century and has been designated as a Grade II listed building. The wedding venues within the estate include The Manor House, Waterside Pavilion, Lakeside Marquee and Walled Garden Marquee.
The Manor House
The stunning country house is one of the most popular celebration settings and wedding venues in Cheshire.
Within the house there are three fabulous locations where they can stage wedding ceremonies as well as a choice of wonderfully ornate rooms and outdoor settings where you can entertain your guests.
The early Georgian inspired Dining Room creates a stunning setting with its beautiful walnut paneling and incredible plaster work. The dining room creates the perfect setting for an intimate wedding and in the summer months the doors are opened to reveal one of the spectacular lime tree avenues, making it a very sort after wedding venue in Cheshire.
The stunning Music Room is a wonderful entertainment room, accompanied by its spectacular wall paneling, carvings, elaborate plaster work and period paintings by Giovanni Cipriani, will take your breath away. With room for up to 200 guests the music room is a fantastic location for larger celebrations.
The Waterside Pavilion
This exquisite secret garden location is set in Thornton Manor’s magical woodland dell; The Waterside Pavilion is one of the most traditional English wedding venues on the Wirral.
Have a village fete style wedding decorated with country bunting, pastel colours. Adjacent to the Waterside Pavilion, is a three bedroom, luxury Thatched Cottage, which can be used in conjunction with the Waterside Pavilion.
The Lakeside Marquee
This picturesque waterside location is a fabulous outdoor venue to entertain your wedding guests.
Tucked behind a steeped wall in Thornton Manor’s extensive grounds, the lakeside marquee is a popular choice for marriage celebrations, it creates one of the most fantastic and unique marquee wedding venues for warm summer days.
Nestled at the side of the lake, which was created for the first Viscount during the early part of the last century, is one of the North West’s most unique wedding venues, an elegant and luxurious white marquee that will cater for up to 400 guests.
The Walled Garden Marquee
Set within their secluded 2 acre walled garden with appropriate parking, The Walled Garden Marquee is one of the most elegant wedding venues in Chester.
The accommodation within the Thornton Manor Estate is extensive with 22 Double Bedrooms and 14 onsite Cottages.

We had our wedding at Thornton Manor and it was hands down a five star experience. The venue itself is gorgeous – both inside and outside, so opportunities for photographs are endless. The events team is there with you every step of the way, from early days of planning to your wedding day. They have everything under control, coordinating the suppliers and helping execute your vision. Our friends and family travelled from all over the world and having accommodation on site was crucial – the rooms in the house and the surrounding cottages are excellent. All in all, Thornton Manor was a perfect choice of venue.
What can we say! From the moment we stepped into Thornton Manor, we knew it was where we had to have our wedding… We booked on the spot! From day one, the care and love we were shown was absolutely outstanding. We came to visit on so many occasions – with our children, our Mums, our wedding party… (on our own, just to look!) and every time we were looked after so well and made to feel so special. I probably cried with joy on each visit but your team were too kind to laugh at me! We stayed in the cottages the night before, and again the love and attention we were shown was second to none… And then came the day itself. I am crying as I write this. I have never, ever in my life, felt so loved and cherished as I did on my wedding day. The staff at Thornton Manor made sure that every single detail was thought of and I only had to turn and someone asked me if I needed anything… It was amazing, excellent, tremendous. The best day of our lives! We cannot thank you enough. It was magical.
We attended a wedding here in September; it was magical from the moment we arrived. Thornton Manor had thought of everything to make the day as special as possible for our friends. The grounds are just beautiful and we were lucky enough to stay in one of the cottages on site, which were really comfortable and in keeping with a country manor estate. The staff we encountered were all lovely and willing to help if anyone needed anything. I sincerely hope to get invited to a wedding here again as it was truly unforgettable.
My daughter and wonderful new son in law held their wedding celebrations at this venue last weekend and I am still on cloud nine. This place is awesome… from the outstanding beauty of the setting, luxurious unique bedrooms with stunning views, highly professional attentive staff, exceptionally good food and bar service. Every detail was just superb. If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue, look no further. This place will take your breath away.
I can honestly say one of the best choices I have ever made was choosing Thornton Manor for our wedding in June. Right from the original booking to unfortunately having to go home, everything was perfect. Booking a room was simple and they were just gorgeous. We were lucky enough to have Lauren to help organise our big day and she was fantastic. She kept us updated and made us feel so relaxed. At no point was I stressed or worried. Every person we came across was absolutely fantastic. They go above and beyond, and then even further. Like a lot further. They literally cannot do enough for you. Sandy was on hand to direct the day and she was amazing. Again, kept us updated and relaxed. Again, no stresses or worries. Even when nerves kicked in a bit, she was there. The venue is just beautiful and it really does feel like your home for the day. Our guests were completely blown away. Our wedding day was everything we’d dreamed of , and so much more. And that was most definitely helped by choosing Thornton Manor. Not only for the most stunning venue, but also their amazing staff. They really are a credit to the place. If you’re looking for the wedding of your dreams then Thornton Manor is your venue. And if you’re wondering which caterers to choose, then go for Barretts. They were also amazing. Thank you to everyone involved in our big day.
