Absolutely amazing venue. We booked the house for the whole weekend so our friends could come and stay and we had the wedding in the barn. It was so good having everything all on site. The venue and the grounds were beautiful. The staff were so helpful and kind. The food was amazing, they cooked everything that we wanted and no one went hungry. It was the best weekend of my life and I truly believe that the venue had a big part to play. Absolutely wonderful.

Best weekend of our lives

We fell in love with Bruisyard Hall and Barn as soon as we visited it. We had the best weekend of our lives with our friends and family. Katie and the team completely took the stress out of the wedding planning (and tidying up!) and we enjoyed every minute of our experience at Bruisyard. Katie, you are an absolute asset to the team. Thanks again for everything. Hannah Churchyard and Pip Churchyard xxx

The perfect intimate wedding

Bruisyard Hall is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding, as soon as we viewed the Hall we knew it was the ideal location for our wedding. The Hall itself is stunning, the bedrooms are all well decorated and comfortable, the communal rooms downstairs are all welcoming and a great place for family and friends to socialise. Staying at the Hall meant that we had plenty of time to relax so there was no rush on the day to get to the wedding venue, which was on less thing to worry about. The staff were amazing, there when you needed them but left us to it when we wanted privacy. The food was great and so much of it! The best thing was that we were able to take our dogs so the whole of our family was there. I wouldn’t have changed a thing, we had the perfect wedding day and an amazing time for our whole stay.

We have had no end of compliments

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for such an amazing day.

We have only been home a few hours however we have had no end of compliments from our family and friends saying how fantastic the day was and especially the venue.

We can’t fault you and your services. Thank you for all of your hard work making our day so very special.

The food was amazing so please pass our compliments onto your fabulous chef. Can we keep your pizza chef?! The pizzas were delicious! The music was also fabulous so please pass our thanks onto Dreamwave for putting on tunes that kept our guests dancing until the very last song!

Thank you for being so approachable and friendly yet still so professional, you answered all of our questions along the way and made us feel instantly at ease.

Thank you for giving us the sunniest November day we’ve had in years! You promised me the day I booked the wedding last year that we would be looked after and have amazing weather and you were right!

You and your staff are fantastic!

You will not be disappointed with Bruisyard Hall!!

Bruisyard Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding last week. From the day we viewed the hall and barn, we knew it was where we wanted our wedding. Bethany has been so helpful in the planning and organisation over the last few months and we always had our questions answered quickly. The venue looked amazing on the day and I was so surprised at how smoothly everything went. The house is an amazing place to stay and made the weekend even more special. If you're planning a wedding, you will not be disappointed with Bruisyard Hall!!

Buzzing with a range of emotions

Just wanted to say what an amazing day Michael and I had on Thursday. We keep reliving all the moments and are still buzzing with a range of emotions. All the guests said how lovely the venue was and how attentive and friendly the whole staff/team were. They loved the meals and canapés too. Can't believe it's all over now! Thank you for all your help.

We couldn’t let the moment go without thanking you for your input towards what proved to be an excellent day for everyone. The weather was superb, the venue proved to be ideal. Everyone remarked how the event had come together and ran extremely smoothly. We were delighted by the reaction of family and guests resulting in a most memorable experience for us all. From the time Katie joined us to plan the final catering and hospitality arrangements for the event, we were confident that she would deliver at every level. The food proved to be excellent. Thanks to ‘Johnny’ , Izzy and the rest of the team for their tireless work on the day, working in the background to provide what appeared to be an endless stream of food! We would recommend Bruisyard Hall ‘outside catering’ to anyone considering such an event and would be very happy to discuss our excellent experience. As Katy would inevitably say, “perfect”.

Our faces in the pictures say it all

We cannot thank everyone at Bruisyard enough for everything you did to help to make our wedding day so special. The venue is utterly beautiful and all of our guests commented on what a gorgeous setting it was - a hidden gem in Suffolk.

Having the hall for the evening before just added to the whole occasion enabling all of our wedding party to spend that extra special time together. The rooms were all so beautiful and our evening meal from the kitchen was delicious!

All of you staff were incredible in helping our day to run smoothly and take away any stresses there could have been. You had everything in hand on the day, which meant that Stephen and I were able to completely relax and just enjoy being together with everyone we love. The permanent smiles on our faces in the pictures say it all! Even before the event, your communication and support in the planning was incredible so thank you.
