Book Your Wedding with Tarrywile Park & Mansion
A GARDEN IN DANBURY, CT
The Grape Arbor. Idyllic woodland surroundings provide a romantic, elegant spot for wedding ceremonies and photos. A great place for summer weddings, the arbor’s grapevines add a touch of character and charm.
The Gazebo. Nestled among the garden’s impressive array of flowers, this genteel setting makes a superb spot for first-look photographs and the exchanging of vows.
The Tent. The estate’s lawn provides ample space for couples wishing to host their reception outdoors. The Tent takes on a simplistic-yet-elegant feel with all the modern amenities on supply.
The Drawing Room, Dining Room and Conservatory. The Mansion oozes Victorian-era splendor that never goes out of style. The stately Drawing Room leads onto the Conservatory, known for its tiled floor and elegant chandelier. The Dining Room, with its built-in china cabinets, makes the optimal location for a seated dinner or buffet-style meal.
The Veranda. Overlooking the Children's Garden, the sweeping Veranda offers a compromise between indoors and outdoors, making it ideal for ceremonies and receptions alike. The Veranda is also a great spot for a cocktail hour.

We just had the most romantic, fantastic wedding ever at Tarrywile Mansion. I can't say enough how wonderful the setting was, and how many of my guests gushed about the mansion, grounds, and especially the veranda. We had our ceremony under the grape arbor right before dusk. It needed no extra ornaments, it was so beautiful as is. Our bagpiper played to the side as guests mingled and took their seats, and he roamed the grounds playing while they adjourned to the veranda for cocktail hour. We took some of the prettiest fall photos with our photographer on the grounds and after dark , inside the conservatory! We light it and the veranda up with tinkling lights and it was just...perfection. We used the various rooms inside the mansion and on the veranda to fit our 100 guests, and it was so intimate! Everyone gathered in the foyer to watch our first dance and to see us descend the stairs and be announced. The kitchens our caterer used (Red Pepper Diner) were clean, spacious, and professional. He made all our food on site and it was so flavorful and delicious! Honestly, I will carry the memories we made forever...Tarrywile was my first choice, and we were so lucky to have been able to have our wedding here. You couldn't do any better!
What a stunning place for a wedding. The weather being perfect that day did help, but honestly all of the preparation was made simple by those who run the Mansiou. Big shout out to Anne-Marie specifically who assisted with all of our questions. The day was exactly as we expected and ALL of our guests were so impressed. They continue to compliment us on choosing Tarrywile Mansion for our special day. THANK YOU to all of the staff there!!! Larry and Lori
We had such a wonderful experience with Tarrywile. We worked with Anne-Marie in the process and she was helpful, kind, and always got back to us right away. The grounds are beautiful; there are many beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces to work with for both a ceremony and a reception depending on the weather. Definitely recommend!
My daughter just recently married here at Tarrywile Mansion. We could not have picked a better venue. Everything from the ceremony under the grape Trellace to picturesque locations both inside and out on the property for photos to the airy veranda for cocktail hour and then intimate Victorian rooms for dining with a separate area for dancing the night away helped to make this day the most stunning wedding event. From the time we booked throughout the wedding day,they were available for questions and also offered the best of the best for ou tside vendors to complete the day. Highly recommended!!!!!
Tarrywile Park and Mansion is THE place to get married! We decided on Tarrywile because of its beautiful outdoor features, including the grape arbor we had the ceremony under, the gazebo we took photos at, or the small pond that we took our engagement photos at. Besides the scenery, Tarrywile is really the place you can customize your wedding. You can use their preferred list of caterers, photographers, and other vendors, but you can also make it your own, off their list. We decided to use 2 different foot trucks, and with Tarrywile's flexibility, we were really able to make our wedding exactly what we wanted. One thing I do suggest is to use a set up/clean up/wait staff service that comes before, helps throughout and cleans up for you. I highly recommend the service we used, JLS Bartending and Special event services (Jessica Smith; [email protected] found on Thumbtack- https://www.thumbtack.com/ct/norwalk/food-services/catering-event-coordinating). We set the hours they came and left (9am-8pm) and they did absolutely everything for us (set up tables, including the cloths, plates, etc., brought food to the guests, everything!). Don't think twice about Tarrywile- it's the way to go!
We had our wedding at The Tarrywile Mansion on 6/10/17. Perfect venue. Beautiful setting. Great staff!
Excelente over all
Where do I begin?! Tarrywile was the absolute perfect venue for our vintage wedding. Wedding date was May 20 for 90 guests. Flowers were in bloom and landscaping was well kept. Anne-Marie and staff were responsive to emails and calls. They even accommodated for my family and planner to be able to decorate the day before. We went with all their vendor recommendations and were not let done at all. I got endless compliments on our venue choice. It felt intimate and welcoming, like you were celebrating at someones home. Not your basic hall or barn wedding. Tarrywile gave our wedding a unique and timeless feel.
Of all of the many decisions and choices to make when planning a wedding the easiest, best, no...perfect choice was Tarrywile Mansion. The staff was wonderful, the grounds are beautiful, and the mansion is pristine. If you want to feel like you stepped back in a beautiful moment in time, if you want a unique setting that you can put your personal touch on then Tarrywile Mansion is the place to be.
My wife and I had our wedding here on May 7th. We enjoyed using the mansion and personalizing it to reflect our love for each other and the interests that built the foundation of our relationship. The hospitality that the mansion staff provided was excellent. They also provided a great caterer that knew their way around the mansion and grounds. The staff gave us flexibility to choose a photographer and DJ that provided services above our expectations as well. Overall, our guest had a terrific and memorable time. We will definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking to think outside for their wedding planning.
Great lowkey venueReviewed on 1/06/2016 Michelle Y
Beautiful venue with lots of space indoors and out.
Beautiful on a BudgetReviewed on 8/13/2015
I am a graduate student, and my husband was also in school while we were planning the wedding. We wanted a quality location for a reasonable price, and Tarrywile was the best choice in the Danbury area. We had a garden-themed wedding. The grape arbor was a perfect ceremony site. All of our pictures look lush and colorful. We had about 100 guests, which is a little tight in the mansion. Get creative, and plan to transition rooms. We turned the conservatory into the dance room. Guests loved that there was both a space for party and space for quieter talking outside. The mansion was free on the day before the wedding and we (our family & friends) were therefore allowed to decorate a day early. I'm not sure how we would have pulled it off without this time. Thank you Tarrywile!
The historic and well cared for mansion and property is full of charm. Our family and friends were able to experience a variety of scenery through out our wedding. Our wedding ceremony was under a blooming grape arbor, cocktail hour was through out the entire mansion, including the conservatory and veranda. Our reception was under a large tent adjacent to conservatory and grape arbor. Pictures were taken around an apple orchard, through out various flower gardens and around a gazebo. This vendor is well priced and the events coordinator was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend renting Tarrywile Park & Mansion for your future event, or just visit to hike and enjoy nature at it finest!
My June 13th wedding at Tarrywile mansion was amazing. The mansion is so pretty that we need minimal decorations. We had our ceremony under the grape arbor, so picturesque, and lawn games close to the mansion. Kids and adults enjoyed hiking around the mansion on the day of the event. I would highly recommend Tarrywile to everyone!
Great venueReviewed on 8/08/2013 Jayme E
When we first learned about Tarrywile, we fell in love with it. This is a great spot for any event, but our wedding was perfect. We held the ceremony under the grape arbor which was in full bloom. Then our cocktail hour was on the veranda which was also very nice. Then our reception was inside the mansion. So many people complimented us on what a beautiful mansion it was, and wanted to know how we had found out about Tarrywile. My husband and I also love hiking the trails. Becky and Anne Marie are so wonderful to work with, and are willing to do so much for the brides. This venue is affordable and is much more unique than a standard banquet hall. We loved our wedding at Tarrywile
April indoor weddingReviewed on 5/09/2013 Heather F
I had my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all at Tarrywile to cut down on time and cost. I fit perfectly into our budget and feel of the wedding. My wedding was a small group of 50 people and Tarrywile worked well for that sized group, I would not recommend it for a larger group if you are just indoors and want everyone to see. Staff was helpful and on top of paperwork.
