Venue spotlight: Shire Hall located in the heart of Woodbridge

couple on stone steps outside brick building Located in the heart of Woodbridge in beautiful Suffolk and surrounded by traditional inns, restaurants and historic quirky buildings, the magnificent 16th-century Shire Hall is steeped in history and provides the perfect setting for weddings.

Built in 1575 by Thomas Seckford the building has been a focal point of Woodbridge for more than 400 years and stands proud in the centre of Market Hill. Displaying its iconic 17th-century Flemish gabling and stone capping, with elegant long iron staircase either side of the large impressive arched doors, the Shire Hall is picture-perfect.

Make your grand entrance via the stone steps into the airy Council Chamber with its splendid architectural columns, which comfortably holds up to 64 guests. The Shire Hall has step-free access for those with limited mobility and provides public Wi-Fi and a Bluetooth sound system for those who require it.

A wedding car can be parked off road at the back of the Shire Hall for the bridal couple to use, which also offers another space for a vehicle for those relatives or friends with limited mobility.

The Shire Hall is open to the public between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday and welcomes you to visit by booking an appointment.Check out www.woodbridge-suffolk.gov.uk/weddings
