Suffolk, a county that possesses natural beauty and stunning landscapes – a rural idyll for the perfect modern wedding.
There may be an array of locations in the area to choose from, but our wedding venues in Suffolk really do offer it all, with magical touches to ensure your day is picture-perfect. Let’s have a closer look and help you to pick the Suffolk wedding venue you’ve been dreaming of…
Why Get Married in Suffolk?
Before we get into our two stunning properties, let’s first discuss the county that’s home to Constable, Gainsborough, Benjamin Britten and Ed Sheeran – why should you get married in Suffolk?
Well aside from the undeniably beautiful acres of countryside that have inspired classical paintings and pop songs alike, Suffolk also has a huge selection of characterful churches to choose from, so you’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re looking for a religious ceremony in a more traditional setting.
Milsoms Kesgrave Hall
The first of our two Suffolk wedding venues is Kesgrave Hall, located in 40 acres of park and woodland in the heart of Ipswich. Positioned near to some really beautiful churches, Kesgrave Hall is also licensed for civil ceremonies. This 23-bedroom hotel has a number of spaces to serve weddings of different sizes:
The Hangar at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall is a one of a kind wedding venue, purpose built with capacity for up to 300 guests to wine, dine and dance the night away. This spectacular space was designed with state of the art lighting to create a romantic atmosphere – a blank canvas to be transformed as you wish to suit your big day.
If you’re looking for something a little more intimate for a smaller wedding party, The Mess has room for 24 of your nearest and dearest to join you for the ceremony. A beautifully decorated and furnished space with plenty of Georgian character, this private hideaway is ideal for couples wanting something refined and very special.
Your wedding menu is the star of the show, created bespoke for your guests by the talented chefs at Kesgrave Hall. Choose a traditional three-course wedding breakfast, or go for informal-style BBQs, mezze boards or bowl food.
Kesgrave Hall offers the option to exclusively hire the hotel so that guests can stay just a stone’s throw from the party. Reminisce with guests over breakfast the next morning, or enjoy the new spa facilities to unwind after the excitement of the wedding day.
A beautiful ceremony and reception wedding venue in Suffolk, Hengrave Hall is located in the heart of Bury St Edmunds and offers 350 acres of landscaped lawns and gardens for you and your guests to enjoy.
