Once a 14C Augustinian monastery, and later much loved by Mary Tudor, the house has often been called "the most romantic house in England." Butley Priory is now a fairytale wedding venue near London, with accommodation for up to 16 people. Situated in the wilds of the Suffolk Coast, we also host breathtaking parties, dinners and receptions.
At Butley Priory, the whole of the house and grounds are available on an exclusive basis, giving you complete privacy and the feeling of being 'at home'. We have been holding weddings here for more than a decade and we are confident that our highly experienced wedding team can make your dreams come true! The house has a fascinating history and we feel that something of the serenity and peace of past ages remains here. Despite the antiquity, Butley is very much a lived in family home with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Thank You!A huge Thank You for helping to organise our wedding. You guys were so helpful and made everything ten times easier, especially as it was so last minute!
As soon as we saw Butley Priory back in February we knew it was the place we were going to get married and we hadn't even come inside! It was dusk and the ground was covered in snow and we drove past on the road and Butley was all lit up and it was like something out of a fairytale. It was the perfect place to get married. The venue and the wedding were so laid back and relaxed, which was exactly the atmosphere that we wanted. It ran exactly like clockwork, which i now know in hindsight was down to you guys, so thank you so much for that.
Loads of people commented on how lovely Butley Priory was and how gorgeous the food was, so i am so glad it happened with you!

The ultimate professional, personal service.Married in Late October. Beautiful venue has buckets of eclectic style with loads of picture perfect interior choices and exterior too! Management team were a pleasure to work with, flexible and helpful and very professional. Our wedding day ran like a dream. We have no regrets and would highly recommend Butley Priory. Quite spooky at night when we were left entirely alone on our wedding night! An unforgettable experience.We loved it!

perfect venue, staff needed chasing up though!We fell in love with Butley Priory instantly. Such a gorgeous venue for our special day. Only bad point was our "wedding planner" forgot to let us know catering & drinks were through a separate company. We found out a week before by chance then was a rush to organise it ready for the big day. I'm not sure how but she messed up our playlist for the service too which was quite upsetting after the hours we spent compiling it to flow through. We had some random song I'd not heard before on repeat. But again venue was gorgeous just make sure you chase the staff!

We cannot thank you enough!The staff were wonderful and made our wedding weekend so much better than we could have imagined. They made us feel totally relaxed and comfortable but also completely confident that every tiny detail was being managed with absolute professionalism and grace. We loved every moment of it.
