Bruisyard Country Estate, Saxmundham, Suffolk
Enjoy the best of both worlds at this picturesque wedding venue. Set in beautiful countryside, it's close to the Suffolk coast too with lovely beaches and seaside towns just a short drive away. At the heart of the Bruisyard Country Estate is the stunning 17th-century barn with floor-to-ceiling double doors allowing the natural light to flood in. Spacious, with wooden beams criss-crossing the high ceiling, some of the original brickwork can still be seen.
The magnificent hall is steeped in history, with parts dating back over 700 years including the 14th-century remains of a nunnery. Surrounded by lush lawns and flowerbeds, there's a tranquil lake behind the hall; a favourite spot for romantic just-wed shots. With wildflower meadows, rolling green fields and wooded areas beyond, there's a wealth of album-worthy photo opportunities.
You can marry in the Medieval Barn joined by 140 guests followed by a wedding breakfast in the Banqueting Barn and evening reception for 200 people. If your heart's set on an al fresco ceremony, you can have that too; there's 700 acres to choose from for a picture-perfect spot. For something more intimate, you can say 'I do' in the hall with up to 30 of your nearest and dearest and enjoy a cosy reception in the dining room afterwards.
We love... that the venue's team of chefs will help you choose a menu to suit you, what's more there's a free tasting so you can sample the food and the wine to go with it before the big day.
