Weddings and Celebrations

Thistle Hill’s beautiful surrounds are the perfect backdrop for pre and post wedding events and photos.

DIY or Not

Thistle Hill’s beautiful surrounds are the perfect backdrop for pre and post wedding events and photos. We’re also perfect for those milestone birthday parties, or any event where you want a beautiful place to celebrate.

We can host micro weddings and elopements, or all the ancillary wedding events for weddings held close by.

Relax and enjoy all the days before and after your wedding with those most important to you all staying in one place. 

Our three distinct accommodation options mean that you can have multiple families on the one property, yet with their own space. 

Our dining hall, pavilion, atrium, and deck areas are all great spots for entertaining family and friends for those special rites of passage.

We can cater these events for you, or you can self-cater in our generous gourmet kitchen, or bring in caterers of your choice. 

Here are some suggestions of where you could hold some of the most significant wedding celebrations while staying at Thistle Hill guesthouse. 

We'll bend over backwards to make your stay and your event as smooth as can be. We're happy to do little things like refreshing your linen so that bride and groom can switch rooms to Lavender Cottage after the wedding.

Here's a few ideas about how you can make Thistle Hill your wedding HQ, but we can be completely flexible to make sure your special events are just what you dreamed of:

Hen's & Buck's

With plenty of space to party or relax, and close proximity to golf courses, wine tasting and lots of other fun activities, Thistle Hill is a great location for hen's and buck's getaways.

For a modern take, why not use our luxury villa for the hens and our boutique hotel for the bucks, and get together for a joint BBQ.

Bridal Luncheons

While you’re celebrating with your closest girls, why not book some inhouse pampering by the pool. We have mobile massage therapists and beauticians, along with yoga and meditation facilitators that can run some great relaxation sessions for your ladies.

Rehearsal Dinners

The Thistle Hill dining room or pavilion can be set up to stage truly magical rehearsal dinners, or we can organise a marquee or outdoor setup styled to your tastes.

The Perfect Preparation Space

Our modern luxury Villa and Pavillion are both spacious and light filled, perfect for the bridal party to prepare for the big day.

Guest Lunches

While the bridal party is feverishly preparing for the big event, we can nourish those family members who’ve travelled a long way to join you.

The All-Important

Post Wedding Brunch

Why not enjoy a buffet ‘hangover breakfast’ in our elegant dining room?  Guests can even go for a refreshing dip in the pool before beginning the

trip home.
