Lord Thompson Manor Wedding
Photographed by: Ashley & Rich
THOMPSON, CT; LORD THOMPSON MANOR, THE COTTAGE HOUSE – WORCESTER, MA: HOLY CROSS COLLEGE
This Lord Thompson Manor weding brought us three wonderful venues, which was quite a treat. The bride, her bridesmaids and family chose The Cottage House to prepare for the ceremony, which is a sister property of Lord Thompson Manor. A quaint New England Inn, The Cottage House is a bright and charming place to get ready for a wedding day. Photographically speaking, its neutral color palette allows colors of the dresses and flowers to pop with vibrancy. Also there is an abundance of natural light, which is a wedding photographer’s dream. Located only a half mile from the manor, it’s the perfect location for any Lord Thompson Manor wedding. Which, coincidentally, is where the groom and his groomsmen chose to put on the tuxedos and prepare for the wedding.
The ceremony location is also one of our favorites, The College of the Holy Cross. One of the oldest Catholic colleges in the country. The campus, for what it lacks in size, it makes up for in beauty. Specifically, St. Joseph’s Chapel and Fenwick Hall. The stunning St. Joseph Chapel is an impressive place to hold a wedding ceremony. The stain glass windows and the craftsmanship of the ceiling alone are two things that really stand out. Just as Fenwick Hall is for wedding portraits. The staircases and the balcony, alongside the ivy and brick, as well as the balcony make Fenwick Hall a great place to pose the wedding party. The view overlooking the city of Worcester, MA is not so bad, either.
Back To The Manor
For the reception we made our way back to Lord Thompson Manor to enjoy the evening. And the staff here is really focused on allowing wedding party and guests to enjoy themselves. Having the speeches on the balcony overlooking the crowd unique, which is something guests enjoy. Inside and out, Lord Thompson Manor is an elegant and historic venue with modern upgrades. With so many location options to choose from, The Manor offers unparalleled variety for a New England wedding venue.
