  • you have 6 hours at a castle. Yes, some venues allow 7+ hours, but thornewood is magnifient and you do not have to provide your own deorations because the castle itself needs no additions.

  • Not only is the venue drop dead gorgeous, but the staff is SUPER responsive to emails and were all incredibly helpful the day of the wedding. I didn't even hire a wedding coordinator due to how great their staff was. The venue price is high, but you don't really need to buy decorations and tables/chairs/tablecloths/candles are all provided. The room flip was super fast and my guests were all awed at the venue. They are strict on their policies, but as it's technically someone's house, they have to be! Just ask your questions ahead of time to not be surprised by policies.

  • Great venue, very impressive. But it's hard to work with them because they won't let anyone do the set up until your 6 hours start. So, you can't start getting ready or makeup or catering set up until, say, 11am. They start set up, takes about an hour. It's 12pm, most brides are still getting ready until 1pm. Ceremony, then dinner at 1:30pm. Dinner for 2 hours, it's 3:30pm. Reception starts and you have to be out by 5pm for cleanup until 6pm. And that's assuming everything goes off without a hitch. We didn't have time for a reception because we were actually having fun during dinner. It costs $500 per hour after 6, so...yeah...

  • The castle is beautiful inside and out. We decided on an indoor wedding since both the groom and I would run from the altar at the first sign of a bee so having it indoors made sense. Also since it will be at the end of April you never know what the weather will be like. The staff that gave us the tour were very helpful answering all of our questions and once we agreed we wanted the wedding there gave us a large packet with info including a list of vendors that they know well but you are free to hire anyone you want it doesn't have to be from the list. She said people have had pizza delivered, bbqs, potluck style, all kinds of stuff, the only thing is things have to be ready without the use of a kitchen since theirs is very small. But overall a wonderful place that has staff ready to help with any questions or concerns.

  • 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!

  • Thornewood Castle was the best venue for both our wedding ceremony & reception. It was perfect for our simple, romantic, and elegant wedding. There’s no need for a lot of decorations. Every angle is picture perfect. Even the staff are very convenient to work with.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such an awesome review! We work really hard to make sure everything is as perfect as you imagined! Congratulations on a beautiful wedding, and thank you for letting us be part of it.

  • My husband and I held our wedding at Thornewood Castle August 2018. I selected Thornewood because I had a vision in mind of an elegant, fairytale, destination wedding in Europe without having to leave WA. Thornewood Castle was stunning and fit our whimsical, sophisticated, Scottish highlands/classic garden wedding theme to a T. The grounds are stunning English garden style, beautiful statues and spectacular architecture and decor inside and out. The location on American Lake was lovely as well. Our guests are still talking about how very beautiful everything was, the garden is just to die for! Inside the beautiful wood, paintings, staircase, fireplace, stained glass windows and statues complete the feeling of being in your own classic fairytale. Plenty of room inside and out, we had a guest count of 130. Leanne was a good contact, responsive and clear and the walkthrough of the venue was helpful. I would recommend having a day of coordinator of your own to help coordinate your event th... Read more

  • Thornewood was a dream-- the venue was beautiful, staff was helpful, responsive and answered questions promptly. We added two extra hours and wish we had gotten more, the day flew by. We stayed the night of the wedding and they upgraded our suite so that was really nice! They provide groomsmen and bridesmaids rooms for the time you have the venue rented. They have a list of preferred/ recommended vendors, use it. It helps when your vendors are familiar with the venue, Thornewood is also a Bed and Breakfast & part of a neighborhood, so there are several rules and restrictions (nothing unreasonable).

    We are so grateful that you chose to celebrate with us and that you enjoyed your wedding so much! Thank you and we hope you have a happily ever after.

  • Thornewood is GORGEOUS and worth every penny! We got married in August so you pay more for the peak season but trust me we are so happy. We had our ceremony and reception at Thornewood and we used the garden for our ceremony and it was fabulous. It was prettier than any other venue we looked at and they provided tables, chairs, linens, and the best sunsets. People had warned me that they were very strict with their rules like no outside music other than during the ceremony and you have to have everyone out by 10 pm, but nothing they ask is unreasonable. We loved our wedding and we felt that Thornewood was a fairy tale wedding that we could have only dreamt of being so perfect. Our guests loved the historical aspect of the castle and spent a great deal admiring the grounds inside and out. A good tip I got when we were researching venues was if you want an outdoor ceremony to find a place that is just as beautiful inside so if the weather isn't agreeable and you need to go inside you won...

  • Thornewood is hands down the most beautiful venue in the Seattle/Tacoma area. From the first tour we were mesmerized by the beauty and charm of this incredible historic castle shipped over from Wales. We had a beautiful wedding and would definitely recommend Thornewood to anyone looking for a romantic setting. There are a few things that should be noted however: Thornewood is *incredibly* strict. Our photographer was not allowed to look around to find areas for us to do our first look in case it rained, until the exact time we had officially reserved the space for set-up (even though everyone was already there getting ready). All she wanted to do was look and they shooed her back upstairs to us. Really weird. We were not allowed to use petals for our flower girl so we figured something else out instead. They only allowed us to rent the space until 10pm due to a neighborhood noise ordinance, as the castle is located right in the middle of a residential neighborhood, taking away from the... Read more

  • Beautiful location. Suggests improvement in making appointments, Perhaps an online booking system to make appointments easier to track. Unfortunately there was a lack of communication from the person that was covering my event. I did find the alcohol policy rather strict when last call was at 9 and the person covering the event attempted to take my wine away at 9:30. I thought it was rude and uncalled for.
