About Us

Lord Thompson Manor is an elegant mansion wedding venue located in Thompson, Connecticut. Couples can enjoy a full weekend wedding experience on the manicured 40-acre estate, an exceptional backdrop for a New England country wedding since 1990. With outstanding dining and excellent service, this mansion can host a wedding celebration to remember.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue can host up to 220 guests for a weekend wedding celebration, focused on a single wedding per weekend. The estate staff aims to craft a weekend where guests participate in a party instead of remaining stationary as in a standard wedding reception. The rehearsal dinner can be held indoors in the elegant conservatory or outdoors by the cozy Fire Pit, with an emphasis on introducing guests. The ceremony can be held in the Manor’s Side Garden or in the Conservatory, two beautiful and romantic spaces. Each reception and after-party is colored by touches of decor tailored to each couple’s style and season. With dessert and hot beverages served in multiple locations, guests are encouraged to explore and enjoy the manor while mingling in a party atmosphere. The weekend will wrap up with a farewell breakfast.

Services Offered

For your wedding celebrations at Lord Thompson Manor, the staff can take care of event planning, organizing event rentals, setup, and cleanup. On-site items available include tables, chairs, linens, china, glassware, flatware, and audio-visual equipment. Parking and shuttle services are available on-site for the convenience of couples and guests. Additionally, the KISS Spa is available for pampering and relaxation in the Cottage House, less than a mile from the estate.


The on-site chefs exclusively focus on one couple’s customized dining plans each week. Themed rehearsal dinners set a party spirit, while the reception on the big day covers passed and stationary hors d’oeuvres with a plated chef’s dinner. The after-party offers five-foot-long sandwiches, a hot dog stand, or a variety of tempting snacks. The farewell breakfast will show creative touches to put a final finish on wedding weekend dining.


On-site accommodation is readily available at this venue, with six beautifully-furnished overnight guest rooms featuring Ralph Lauren decor. The Cottage House, evocative of a beach home, offers an additional six guest rooms and one suite. Should additional accommodation be required for a wedding party, the staff can be contacted directly for recommendations.
