Located just a stone’s throw from Suffolk’s pebble beach, Thorpeness Country Club was built over 100 years ago in 1912. Boasting not only superb sea views, but also day-long sunshine during the summer months thanks to its South-East facing position, it’s the only beach side wedding venue across the whole of Suffolk and Norfolk.

Celebrate in style
There are two ceremony options to choose from. The first is the sea view lawn, with views stretching down the coastline of Aldeburgh, it’s a real dream come true for those whose life-long wish is to wed outdoors.

The second is the Tennis Room, located on the ground floor of the Country Club, with large double doors along the entire side of the building, allowing natural light to flood the room and a wonderful view of the flowerbeds.

On the first floor of the Country Club is the Grand Ballroom, a beautiful spot in which wedding breakfasts and receptions take place. With space to seat up to 150 guests, it’s a truly charming room with lovely high ceilings, wooden beams draped in thousands of warm fairylights, and plenty of natural light with thanks to the large windows spanning the length of the room. The Grand Ballroom offers ample space to not only increase the evening reception by 50 guests, totalling up to 200 standing, it also provides room for a dancefloor and evening entertainment. There is a dedicated stage area ensuring a DJ or band are perfectly placed to entertain guests. There’s also a bar at the far end of the room, where there is space aplenty for any extra evening additions.

We love...
All Thorpeness Country Club’s wedding packages include exclusive hire of the venue, a night’s stay at Thorpeness Hotel, wedding tasting for two, venue furnishings and linen, as well as a dedicated venue wedding co-ordinator and team on the day.
