You’ve made it past the hardest part of planning your wedding – deciding on a venue! We are so happy you’ve decided to book Thicket Priory for your wedding, and we can’t wait to experience the whole process with you!

In case you’re wondering where to go from here, I’ve put together a little guide to help get you started…

Choose Your Ceremony Space
We have a range of beautiful ceremony spaces to choose from, both indoor and outdoor, the choice ultimately coming down to personal preference. All can be decorated to suit your taste and chosen décor, making it the perfect backdrop for you to say I do. For a more in depth look at the ceremony spaces, read our blog here, but for now I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves …

The Chapel

Amy & Will 20.01.2024 – Carla Whittingham

Olivia & Liam 23.09.2023 – Amy Lou Photography

The Morning Room

Georgina & Mark 07.10.23 – Monkey Mole

The Gardens and Bandstand

Catherine & Craig 01.04.23 – Neil Jackson Photography

If you choose to have a celebrant-led ceremony (*all chapel ceremonies are celebrant-led), then you will have your legal ceremony in the Jefferson room – before or after the all-important walk down the aisle depending on you and the registrars …

Lisa & Leon 20.06.23 – Carla Whittingham

*The registrar is a very important part of your day so make sure to get this booked as soon as possible!*

Book Your Photographer
One of the biggest parts of your wedding – the photos. You can choose any photographer you’d like; however, our Friends of Thicket list is a good place to start if you haven’t yet found one. If you’re also wanting a wedding video, we have worked with some amazing videographers, and these are also on the list.
Just a little look into our recommended photographers…

Venue Styling
If you don’t already have that Pinterest board at the ready, the styling of the venue and the flowers are different for every couple, but we’re always here to provide the inspo for any future weddings, so here’s a few different ideas – our Pinterest is also a great place to look to see how the venue has been styled for previous weddings…
