Butley priory is a really magical place for a wedding. We got married here in October, the south face Garden means the light was flooding and was beautiful, it also makes for a really grand yet homely feel in the evening with the fireplaces. It was truly enchanting. We can not praise or thank Emma at Butley enough, she was incredibly helpful, nothing was too much hassle and she was incredibly calm and organised on the day. It wouldn't have been as easy without her.

Me and my husband were fortunate enough to celebrate our wedding day at this gorgeous place. Such character, charm and charisma, needless to say we had the most special day ever! Special thanks to Sarah, Clare and all the staff who helped to make it that much more perfect. We look forward to celebrating many more occasions there.

Located in a beautiful, tranquil forest setting, Butley Priory is the most enchanting and romantic venue to hold a wedding. The rooms in the priory are stunning but also comfy, warm and inviting.
My husband and I instantly fell in love with not only the look of the place but also the special feel it gives you.
We booked our wedding day for 14 April (2018) and what a fabulous day it was! Everything was perfect - even the clement weather.
The ceremony was held in the Great Hall and the atmosphere felt so intimate and relaxed. The room looked stunning, having been decorated with country flowers and candles! We loved the fact that we were permitted a free hand to decorate the rooms ourselves, although very little was required as the priory is very beautiful as it is.
Photos and bubbly under a blue sky in the gardens full of sunny daffodils was followed by a marvellous wedding breakfast. Thank you to Paul the chef and all the catering staff who produced a delicious three course meal and dealt seamlessly with the various dietary requirements. Our guests praised the meal and said it was the best food they had ever been served at a wedding.
Clare and Sarah had great organisational skills leading up to the wedding and everything was sorted with very little fuss. Thank you also to Emma who worked tirelessly on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly.....which it did!
You cannot help but fall in love with Butley Priory. It is seeped in history, has the most extraordinary architecture with soaring ceilings, open fireplaces and quirky nooks and crannies. It is truly a most charming, intimate and romantic venue for a wedding.
I would thoroughly recommend this venue.
Good food and great setting.

Beautiful wedding venue and escape from the city. In one of the most outstanding buildings, Butley Priory brings grandeur and comfort into one bespoke experience.
An absolute treasure
By Andrew Simpson, on 12 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Feb 2017
Suffolk's best kept secret venue. We got married here on a Sunday in February 2017. We stayed the night and had just the best time. The in house food was excellent and some (very)special dietary requirements catered for without a glitch. Such a wonderful building and marvelous help in the planning. I can't believe that we lived in the locality for so long without knowing that the Priory was there! An absolute treasure. We are looking to book again for a family reunion. It's such a pleasure to be able to recommend a place so unreservedly.
What a shame you only do it once!

We got married at Butley Priory in January 2017 and had the most beautiful day. The venue is so unique and elegant, it was the first and last venue we looked around, and decided straight away we wanted to get married here. We had a small ceremony and chose the in-house food and drinks package which worked perfectly. We have had so many compliments on the food, the venue, everything was perfect and stress free. What a shame you only do it once!
Holds a very special place in our hearts

We held our wedding Butley Priory in September 2016 and it was absolutely amazing. The venue is stunning and such a magical place to host such a special day. Holds a very special place in our hearts
Totally magical and every element was perfect
By Emma Pelan, on 12 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Apr 2010
We got married here in 2010 and it was the most unique, stunning venue. So different than the formualted weddings on offer at hotels elsewhere. Totally magical and every element was perfect, as we could choose everything ourselves, not from a menu. Perfect.
By Neda & Raleigh, on 18 Nov 2015
Everything was perfect- the team were all amazing and we are very grateful to you all for everything.
