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.
