About Us

The Manor Grounds. Lord Thompson Manor sits on 40 acres of grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American landscape architecture. An outdoor wedding Ceremony on the estate, however grand or intimate, will be as solemn as nature and the estate’s regal gentility can make it. Up to 220 guests can be accommodated indoors or outdoors. The manicured grounds of the Manor and Charming gardens and grass areas also provide postcard-worthy moments for the bride and the groom.

The Manor. After the wedding ceremony, couples have their reception indoors and outdoors at the Manor, where celebrated chefs from the James Beard Foundation will prepare a culinary repast worthy of the equally distinguished world-class facility. 220 guests can be accommodated in The Manor. Weddings at Lord Thompson Manor are unhurried weekend affairs that start on the day of the rehearsal dinner, continue on to the day of the wedding, After-Party and ends with Sunday Breakfast or Brunch.

The Cottage House. The Cottage House has seven guest rooms for the wedding party and guests, located on the historic Thompson Green, half a mile away from the Manor. Each cottage is a study in simplicity and charm, with a fresh palette of whites and creams, designed to complement the calm and comfortable surroundings.

Simply put, the Lord Thompson Manor knocked it out of the park! My husband and I were married at the Lord Thompson Manor in August 2016, and since then, not a day goes by that we don't talk about how amazing our wedding weekend was. It was truly the most unforgettable weekend of... Read More our lives. We cannot give enough credit and praise to the entire LTM staff for executing everything so flawlessly. In all honestly, there was not a single detail that was overlooked. This does not just refer to the wedding day - the attention to detail spanned from our early arrival on Thursday night to the rehearsal dinner on Friday evening all the way through to the send-off brunch on Sunday morning. Absolute perfection! That being said, we have to give a very special thanks to Kate, Chef Mike, Jackie, Andrew, and ESPECIALLY, Danielle & Ted! All members of the staff worked tirelessly with my husband and I to create the perfect menus, drinks, décor, and set the mood that truly makes weddings feel "magical." Our guests are still raving about how our wedding was the best they've ever been to - from the food to the final send off! All in all, the thing that puts the Lord Thompson Manor in a league of its own in regard to wedding venues is the fact that they truly listen and care about what you want as a couple. Honestly, by the end of our amazing weekend, we felt like members of the LTM staff were like family - that is how special they made us feel. It is still surreal that they were able to perfectly create such a beautiful atmosphere of love & affection. Nobody wanted the weekend to end! Thank you again for everything. Words really do not do it justice. We wish we could do it all over again!

This place isn't for everyone. If you don't care about attention to detail, appreciate the dedication of exquisite ppl & care about value more than cost ... look away. However ... if you're tired of people saying "it's just 1 day," I'm here to prove why that's nonsense. If... Read More you're DONE researching, this will be the most important 3 minutes of your wedding planning life. Pay attention. HOW I GOT HERE You can't mean "I'm DONE looking" more than I did in the winter of '15. We're not wealthy, but our taste & expectations don't realize that. We looked into everything from historic landmarks to world-renown NE palaces. We considered Italy. Oh, and I'm OCD. Within hours of my engagement I had a new (LTM-famous) email :). I compiled a ~200 question list I had every vendor answer, and I wasn't going to settle until I understood EVERYTHING. Oh, and I KNEW my wedding date would be 10/8/16. Non-negotiable. SIGN #1 - I FELT, GUILTY I'm very, very busy. I have 2 careers, & don't cut corners. On anything. I almost cxld my tour of LTM, for a billion reasons. I could've easily justified cxlng. But there was something about this guy I was emailing that made me feel like I owed him the respect of holding the appt. That's not a normal sentiment for me. SIGN #2 - IT FELT, AT HOME The whole ride I kept thinking "I never knew CT could feel so close" (I'm from central mass). When I pulled up (in 5 ft of snow), I saw this regal mansion. I thought "great, can't wait to feel out of place." Then I walked inside The Manor. I was awestruck. I'd truly never seen anything so magnificent yet, comfortable. The fireplaces, the piano, the woodwork, the music. I felt, at home. SIGN #3 - ANDREW, NOT JUST A SALESMAN Sorry, buddy :). I dealt with Andrew near-exclusively during the "courting phase." His passion, vigor and frankly, kind smile ... won me over. I thought, "this is one of the most authentic salesmen I've ever met!" (& I negotiate with salesmen for a living, so I'm no softy). He was funny, witty, responsive and humble. Far more humble than anyone in his position often is. That's all I'll say :). But it was his knowledge that won us over. We're a tough crowd, my fiance and I. And when I say the 200 q's were effortless for him to answer, & correctly, I mean it. When I say I ended up with 225 questions, it was bc of him. Had we met our “tough crowd” match? I wanted him to have my sale. SIGN #4 – I REGRET ... NOTHING Fast forward to 18 mos of planning & 3 of the most incredible days of not only our, but our guest’s lives … Every TYPE of guest was entertained (even the wallflowers were mobile) and BEYOND well-fed. To say “abundance” was the theme is an understatement. Yet, I never ONCE felt anyone took advantage of us. The LTM family treated us with the utmost compassion, respect & genuine best interest in mind. GENUINE. You just don't find that in this industry. And when asked what I'd have done differently, the answer ... Nothing. Gracie Muffin, Bartender Tom, Chef Mike, Water Afficionado Kate, Party Boy Ted, Fellow "Wonder Woman" Danielle, & the couple of the CENTURY ... Jackie & Andrew ... you're the real thing. With the loudest, non-stop laugh & the award for "most emails" ... this is "Lauren Almost" signing off ... and thanking YOU, LTM, for allowing us to be a part of YOUR story. Oh, and I didn't get married on 10/8/16. (for ANY q's PLEASE email me at [email protected])

Can we give it 100 stars?! The Lord Thompson Manor is just completely amazing, and we really can’t rate it highly enough. The owners and staff here exhibit such incredible care and complete attention to every single minute detail, and the love that they show you and your guests... Read More are constant from the very beginning of the process, to the very last minute of your wedding weekend as you drive away with tears streaming down your face because you have to leave. This was our weekend: Tom and I arrive. The venue itself is stunning. Picture an estate with grounds designed by Frederick Olmsted, the famous landscape architect responsible for NYC’s Central Park. We walk through the wooded paths with little benches set up for a quiet moment. It’s autumn, so the whole setting is patched with bright fall foliage. The manor is already being set up. While you can have a wedding planner, we never used one because the owners are already the best wedding planners you could ever want. They’ve worked with us throughout the past few months to personalize every detail. We walk inside, and the fire is roaring in the drawing room. Photos of us and our family are up on the piano and throughout the house—as if we’ve been living here for the last twenty years. The flowers, which the owners have sourced, are gorgeous and unique. They’ve also found various ornamental pieces that complement our motif and our wedding colors. Soon our guests begin to arrive. The staff have specially designed our rehearsal dinner with a unique menu that reflects our favorite foods. After the party, we spend the night in the impeccably furnished manor guest rooms, along with some of our closest friends. The next day our guests arrive early for a day of lawn games on the estate grounds. Later, as the sun is setting, the ceremony begins in the picturesque side garden. As a gay couple, this is such an incredible moment for us as we say our vows in front of all the people who are most important to us. Then our family makes speeches from the balcony overlooking the garden. The owners have helped us personalize this entire process. All of the food at the reception is absolutely delicious and everlasting. There are countless appetizers, followed by a multi-course sit down dinner. Everyone is seated in a string of connecting rooms within the manor itself. The space is candle lit, romantic, and breathtakingly beautiful. Following dinner, the band begins in the conservatory, and our guests enjoy the run of the estate—from dancing; to cozy conversations on the back terrace in the glow of heat lamps and outdoor fireplaces; to playing pool down in the billiards room; to whiskey tasting at the scotch bar; to wandering a candlelit path through the back gardens. After the reception ends, the after party begins. Those who stay roast marshmallows over the fire pit for s’mores, or cuddle up in the library, or continue to dance. The next day we conclude with a fantastic brunch. And then the crying begins as we know we have to leave this fantastic, magical, perfect place. If you can’t tell, we LOVED our wedding, we had such an incredible time, and our guests were frankly blown away. We can’t help but smile every time we’re out with friends now and they can’t stop raving about how they’ve never been to a wedding that was more fun and romantic. We’d love to take credit, but we tell the truth—that we owe it all to the incredible vision and tireless work of the very special folks at the Lord Thompson Manor.

I was always one of those little girls who thought about my wedding day and had it planned before I was even engaged. I had this magical fairy tale wedding in mind, the type you see in storybooks. When I pulled up to Lord Thompson Manor for the first time I knew all my dreams... Read More were about to come true. The moment I walked through those dreamy doors I knew this was where I wanted to get married. My husband and I had been to many ballroom wedding over our years and we knew we wanted a way to make our 140 person wedding feel as intimate as possible. We also knew we wanted to have outside seating options for those who didn’t want to dance and the multiple cabanas, couches and patio tables allowed for that. No only is the Manor a unique gorgeous venue but the team is outstanding! Jackie, Andrew, Ted and Kate are an exceptional and thoughtful team who make you feel loved, and heard throughout the entire process. Chef Mike is also amazing to work with and is willing to customize and accommodate in any and every way, and of course his food is outstanding! A wedding at Lord Thompson Manor isn’t just a day but a weekend event which made our special time last even longer. I was married at LTM in May and I still hear from so guests that it was the best wedding they had ever attended! The unique aspect of having my family and bridesmaids stay in the Manor and Cottage House added another amazing experience for not only my husband and I but for our guests. My words can never begin to compliment the Lord Thompson Manor team enough. I am forever grateful to have found them and I am so luck have been able to married my best friend there. My only wish is that I could be stuck in a time loop and relive that experience over and over! Lord Thompson Manor you will forever have a piece of my heart!

Being over an hour away from our home, Lord Thompson Manor is definitely the best kept secret in CT. I am hoping to have the honor of being a guest there many more times in the future. It is my understanding that Lord Thompson Manor won The Knot “Brides Choice” Wedding Venue Award last year and they most certainly deserved it and I hope they receive it again. They definitely know how to make an entire weekend “Magical”. Outstanding beyond words.

We happened to find Lord Thompson Manor by mistake, and it was the best mistake ever (besides the huge one my wife made getting married to me). After just 10 minutes of being inside, we were convinced that this place couldn't be real. Not only were the grounds beautiful, but... Read More they seemingly could accommodate almost every request we had. Andrew took us through the house and we were bewildered that we had finally found a place that wasn't driven by squeezing people out of every penny. Andrew focused more on understanding what we were looking for and working with us on how to make it happen. The second we left Lord Thompson Manor, we knew that there wasn't another place in the world we could have our wedding. I don't think a paragraph could encapsulate how critical Jackie (the other owner) was to our wedding. My wife was generally overwhelmed by the entire wedding process. I can't even recall how many times she and Jackie would be talking and texting late into the night, not just about the details of our wedding, but also just really warm words of encouragement and reassurance that everything was going to be ok. Everybody else from LTM deserves their own essay as well, but I'm sure if you're reading this, you're probably bored by now. Here are the highlights: Food: There were no lists with Chef Mike. He worked with us every step of the way to make the custom menu of our dream. The feedback from our guest's was exclusively that this was the best wedding meal they've ever had. They made it a point to say that not only did we have the most amazing food during cocktail hour (and an overwhelming amount of it), it was the first time that the seated dinner matched the quality of the appetizers. The Grounds: LTM is unbelievable. Every nook and cranny that you explore clearly shows that this is a place that was built with love and attention to detail. There is nothing more stunning than being in the parlor while it's being lit by candles and the fireplace is roaring. From the incredible chandelier tree to the communal firepit, there is not one place in the entire venue that you wouldn't want to spend hours in. This place was a dream come true. On top of all that, we had full access to everything for the entire weekend and it truly felt like it was our home the entire time we were there. Ted: I'll let you discover the magic of Ted yourself. When we were told that tipping him was optional, but that we would want to by the end of the wedding, we didn't really understand. On Sunday as we were leaving, there was no question in our mind that having Ted around made our wedding extra special. The man is incredible, and it's almost worth staying at LTM just to hang out with him. Vendors: LTM handed us our vendor's on a silver platter. Not only did they organize the equivalent of a job fair for us to meet their recommended vendors, all of them were wonderful. While we didn't go with all of LTM's recommendations, the vendors we found on our own said that they felt like they had been working with the staff for years. The wedding: LTM is a finely tuned machine. At no point in time was there ever any doubt in our mind that something could go wrong. Every member of the staff knew exactly what to do, and had backup plans for every situation. Even more amazingly, all of this was included in our package. We could focus on enjoying our wedding and our guests rather than worrying about who goes where and making sure our guests were having fun.

When the Manor staff learned that it was going to be a rainy day, they went above and beyond to make sure that we still had a gorgeous wedding. Jackie rearranged our centerpieces to accommodate more candles, which created an especially warm and cozy ambiance, despite the dark clouds outside. Our guests never even remember that there was a storm that day. Danielle, in particular, was a lifesaver. She took care of so many last minute details, and did it with a smile. We could not be more grateful for all of the work that went into creating such a special event.

Lord Thompson Manor is the venue for your wedding- no contest! The accommodations are beautiful and comfortable and the staff takes care of every detail. The food for our wedding was outstanding from Chef Mike! We had so many compliments about the food-honestly people couldn't... Read More stop talking about it and everyone had a different favorite. Jackie understood exactly what decor we wanted for our ceremony and reception and she created a look beyond our expectations! The flowers were the most gorgeous arrangements we have ever seen at a wedding. Andrew was so accommodating and even worked with us to develop our signature drinks and special ordered a certain beer for our rehearsal dinner. Our family and friends were raving about the LTM and the staff for months after our wedding was over. We have so many awesome memories from our time spent there and we are so happy we chose LTM for our wedding weekend. We highly recommend it to any couple looking for a romantic setting with top quality food and service.

The Lord Thompson Manor is absolutely amazing. My fiancé and I knew we wanted to get married at the Manor because of the location, menu options and we knew we didn’t want a traditional ballroom space. A holiday weekend was going to work best for our families (July 4th was the... Read More Friday of our weekend). This made it really important to us that we have a “destination feel” for our guests where they wouldn’t feel like it was a waste of a long weekend to come to our wedding. I also needed a venue that would really deliver the vision since I’m not a big DIY bride. The Manor did not disappoint! What an amazing weekend…. I can’t thank Jackie, Andrew, Ted, Danielle, Kate, Chef Mike and the rest of the Manor staff enough for everything they did for us. Most guests were coming from NYC/ New Jersey and Boston so the Manor was a perfect location not too far from either but once everyone got there, we really felt like we were on vacation. For our rehearsal dinner at the Manor we used the Fourth of July holiday as the theme, but rather than a regular backyard BBQ, the Manor made it was the classiest, BBQ we’ve ever had not overlooking any details from food to flowers. Jackie used some vintage items on our guest tables which was so unique looking. We had hired a guitar player for the night and when our dinner had to be held inside due to rain the staff at the Manor surprised us by setting up a mini stage area inside with the outdoor lighting we had picked for outside so it would give the look I had been hoping for. Saturday was picture perfect. From the custom menu cards to the cake, the details were beautiful! The day was gorgeous outside and everywhere we looked there was something to do outside…they even set up a photo booth area outside for us with vintage props! We used all vendors that the Manor had recommended and they were great. Music is really important to us so we had a string quartet for the ceremony and cocktails, a band for half of the reception and a DJ for the other half. The Manor staff worked with all of them to coordinate the music selections and transitions so they all worked so well together. The Manor truly made this a fairy tale wedding weekend getaway. Our guests were blown away (including us and we thought we knew what was coming)! No detail is overlooked and the professionalism of every single person we worked with was unbeatable. Thank you Lord Thompson Manor for everything!
