Suffolk coastal wedding hotspot

Suffolk coastal wedding hotspot: Image 1 If you can't decide between the coast and the country for your big day, enjoy the best of both worlds at the picturesque Bruisyard Country Estate. Surrounded by 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 picture-perfect setting 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 too, with parts dating back more than 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 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.What's more the venue's team of chefs will help you choose a menu to suit you and there's a free tasting so you can sample the food and the wine to go with it before the big day.
