Private, intimate and unforgettable: here’s why you should consider a package wedding at a stately home
When planning a wedding, there are lots of things to think about, but one of the most important decisions is location. Picking a wedding venue that is unique is a fundamental consideration in many couple’s plans.
Saying “I do” with a country house wedding is a fairytale way to tie the knot. We spoke with Alan Sabol, General Manager of Bruisyard Hall in Suffolk, to find out why hiring a country house might be the best way to start your married life.
Normally enveloped by a vast estate of rolling countryside, manor houses have historical character, heritage charm abound, and lots of rooms to entertain guests. Even though these estates are grand, they can be some of the most intimate wedding experiences. At Bruisyard Hall, there are 35 regal and sumptuously decorated rooms in the main hall and extra accommodation at the barn itself. This means that friends and family can join the bride and groom for an opulent wedding which also includes the exclusive and fabulous three-day wedding experience package. Alan says: “This experience is a relaxed, extended event to spend with friends and family over three days and enjoy everything that Bruisyard Hall has to offer.”
If you are looking for a unique wedding experience, spending a weekend relaxing in a manor house or taking walks through estate parkland is definitely out of the ordinary. You can truly create a dream wedding with unforgettable memories for you and your wedding party. Taking place within the stunning surroundings of the house and estate at Bruisyard, there are a lot of unique onsite activities to enjoy as well.
Whatever the season, a country house will be a charming place to get married. In summer, surrounded by greenery, celebrations can be had in the grounds or huddle up indoors next to a crackling fire during the winter months.
At Bruisyard Hall, weddings are fully customisable experiences, whatever the season. The barn will be set up with tableware, glassware and linens and can be decorated however the couple wishes. Christmas trees felled from the estate will be twinkling during Christmastime and summer blooms in the gardens will greet guests in the warmer months. “We’re a blank canvas,” says Alan. “Each wedding is bespoke. We have a list of trusted suppliers who can create tiered wedding cakes, a string quartet with an extensive musical repertoire, talented photographers, make up artists and prop hire companies. No two weddings will be the same.”
Catering for wedding guests can be a challenge: what format to take, dietary requirements and more. Wedding experiences at Bruisyard Hall can include full catering at the accommodation and some of the highest quality dining for the wedding banquet, all made with locally sourced ingredients. “All our food is made from scratch. We can create a bespoke fine-dining menu serving everything from delicate canapés through to decadent puddings,” explains Alan.
Leave the preparations to the team and enjoy what should be one of the most magical weekends of your life in your very own home from home.
Family-owned Bruisyard Hall is nestled in over 700 acres of picturesque countryside and the whole estate is available to hire for two or three days.
