I always knew I didn't want to be part of the traditional or country club wedding group. I struggled finding a venue because nothing felt unique enough for my taste. The only way I can describe this place is like a diamond in the rough. I also referred to it as a secret garden look alike. My six-year-old and my three-year-old nephew referred to it as Batman's castle. Kevin Murphy was so extremely sincere and helpful. Our wedding is scheduled for eight 1515. I am looking forward to sharing our review then and posting pictures. So far everything has been more than I could have ever hoped for dreamed of.

If you're looking for a venue in a natural setting with a gorgeous Tudor Mansion in the Philadelphia region, you must take a look at the Mansion at Ridley Creek State Park, in Media PA. My daughter just got married there last weekend and everything was perfect. We had the ceremony outside, cocktails on the patio, dinner/dancing in the ballroom and a Photo Booth on the large staircase. We also really enjoyed the very large bridal dressing room for getting ready.

Kevin Murphy, their Event Coordinator, was delightful to work with, answering all of our questions in a responsive manner, allowing us to tour the facility/grounds when we were in town. Way to go Kevin-thank you for all of your assistance!

Also, we used Williamson Caterers, on their vendor list (they also get a 5.0 rating from me) and Theresa Floral Design.

What a breathtakingly beautiful venue! I can't even begin to count the number of compliments we received for such a stunning venue, a true story book/ fairytale ending. I will say, however, that the gentlemen who currently works in the office is less then professional. Not only did he show up to our wedding in jeans and a ratty t- shirt, but he was less then pleasant. I spent a solid 40 minutes on the phone with someone the other night discussing the problems that had ensued. I truly believe that if this man were removed from the equation, this venue would have scored a perfect score.

My husband and I choose Ridley after looking at numerous venues in the area. We wanted a fall wedding that reminded us of Big Sur, California - which is where we fell in love and our most favorite place to vacation. The minute we pulled up to the mansion we said "THIS IS THE PLACE". Ridley was perfect. The outdoor veranda is gorgeous and the grounds are nothing short of a fairytale like setting. Most people get married near the steps but we choose to get married near the water fountain area that is lined with trees on both sides. Ridley is a truly magical place. It is absolutely breathtaking. I would highly recommend Ridley to anyone who wants an outdoor ceremony and loves the outdoors. The dining area is not huge but very intimate which is what we liked. Very historical with a gorgeous stone terrace & French doors surrounding it. We had over 150 people at our wedding and we were comfortable and had a nice size dance floor. The bridal suite is GIGANTIC and beautiful. Management is also very easy to work with and goes above and beyond to help you plan your day.

The mansion and grounds are perhaps among the best places to hold a wedding ceremony and reception. My guests raved about the ambiance and overall feeling of my wedding, and even the candid snapshots from cell phones are gorgeous, so I can't even imagine how amazing the professional pictures will be. Tip to brides: you will need to bring a boatload of decorations into and around the mansion for decorating. With so many windowsills, a patio, and sitting room, be prepared to beautify the spaces on your own. You will be allowed in at 10am on the day of your wedding, and you will not be permitted to store anything overnight. We cleaned up our own wedding and didn't get to the hotel until 1am. There seemed to be some friction between our caterer and Kevin, the event coordinator at the mansion, but everything came together beautifully, and we had a memorable picturesque wedding and reception.

The grounds are absolutely stunning and the wedding was perfect. It's a state park, so the guy running it is not a wedding planner. He's more of a t-shirt & jeans kinda guy. Not the easiest to get ahold of, but a nice guy. You have to close down the wedding at 9pm to be completely cleaned out by 10pm, because of the state park rules. You get your own caterer, but they have a list of people who typically do the catering there. You rent the park from 10am-10pm, which is nice because you can get in early to decorate. All around, the park is stunning, so it is well worth it.

Our wedding at the mansion was beautiful. The mansion was the first venue we saw and we knew right away we wanted to get married here. We worked with Kevin, the park manager, who was very helpful and responsive through phone calls. He met with my family, husband, my in-laws and I on several occasions to do walk throughs and he gave us great advice throughout the planning process. The day of the wedding was beautiful. Luckily it was a beautiful sunny day because there is not a "real" rain back up location at the mansion. If it did rain we would have had to moved inside to the dining area and got married with everyone at their dining tables. Wasn't my ideal choice, but luckily it was an amazing day. Our pictures came out amazing and our guests are still talking about how beautiful and perfect the venue was. Kevin informed us that they are sprucing up the garden section for upcoming fall weddings which will be beautiful. There is a smaller pond in that area which was drained for our wedding, but really will look great once it's up and running and the flowers in that area are pruned. I wish I could re-live my wedding day over; it was great and this venue was amazing.

This place is just amazing. Such a beautiful landscape for an outdoor ceremony (with multiple locations to choose from!) and a beautiful reception room with huge windows, that leads out on to the patio. Kevin was great and always available to answer questions. The bridal suite was a great place to get ready in, so beautiful and it has it's own private courtyard where you can do some pictures before hand with your bridesmaids. All of my guests raved about the location and couldn't believe a place this beautiful was so close without them knowing about it. I highly recommend this place.
