Mankin Mansion

Located just minutes from downtown Richmond, Mankin Mansion is a one-of-a-kind, magical estate that dates back to the early 1900s. Tucked away in a woodland fantasy and surrounded by lush foliage, Mankin Mansion transports you back in time with romance.

Exchange vows in the English Garden on a magnificent brick stage under a singing sycamore tree or in the European Gallery in front of a floor to ceiling grandiose white fireplace under the sparkle of crystal chandeliers.

After you have wed, retire to the patio and lawn for drinks served out of the open-air Pergola bar. Then, move into the Grand Pavilion Tent and let dinner and dancing take the night away! There are even enchantingly secluded sites to escape for some moonlight pictures before your grand exit where you are swept away in a chauffeured luxury car. The best part is that you and your loved ones do not have to lift a finger on your gorgeous wedding day because Mankin Mansion’s wedding coordinators have got you covered!

Come visit for a private tour and see for yourself how spectacular Mankin Mansion really is.

History: Set on a winding road just outside of Richmond, Virginia, Mankin Mansion is a sprawling showplace of the art of brickwork. The residence was built for Edward Thurston Mankin, the founder and owner of one of the South's most highly regarded brick foundries, which operated from 1903 through 1951. Although the brick-making kilns are now gone, the 7,000 square foot Mansion and its five dependencies are connected by intricate brick walks and walls.

Gallery: Enjoy the picturesque backdrop of our lavish, vintage, European styled Gallery for your Ceremony or Reception. The grand space opens through swoon-worthy European doors and is decorated with opulent chandeliers, ornate mirrors, and lush velvet curtains. The floor to ceiling brick fireplace is the perfect backdrop for your heartfelt vows!

Garden: Imagine walking down the long brick aisle in our English Formal Gardens and up to the intricately designed Ceremony Gazebo under our 100 year old sycamore tree.

Pavilion Tent: The High Peak Pavilion is the perfect stage for your reception with stunning crystal chandeliers, ballroom Chiviari chairs, and draped Italian lighting. Our Pavilion includes custom uplighting and a spacious open air white marble dance floor where your guests can dance the night away!
