About Dan’s Meadow

Bealings Road, Martlesham
Suffolk, IP12 4RW


A beautiful and versatile wedding venue in the village of Martlesham near the quaint Riverside Town of Woodbridge in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the heart of Suffolk.

Following major redevelopments in late 2014 we opened for our first wedding in August 2015. Encouraged by the 5 star reviews from our couples we have continued to make improvements and changes to the options we offer.

Our marquee field can cater for Marquees, and Tipi's for events of any size.

A beautiful tree lined drive leads down to our quiet and secluded meadowland stretching for 4.5 acres and bordered by woodlands and the picturesque River Fynn offering availability of over night camping, unlimited on site parking and plenty of photo opportunities around the river and among the mature trees.

Within the site is a purpose built centrally heated hall, which can hold up to 70 guests with the availability of brand new kitchen area containing Fridge Freezer, Butler Sink with Hot and Cold Water, Granite Work Tops, Gas Cooker, Large Wine Rack, Hot Water Urn and even a dishwasher. 

Although we do not currently have available accomodation if your guests wish to stay over night they would have either have to camp or bring a caravan or motor-home which can be accomodated on site with electric hook up, TV Hook Up and use of new toilet and shower block as well as the option to camp on the field with use of our utility room containing hot and cold water, fridge freezer and Microwave Oven. We hope to add two Glamping Lodges to our facilities in the near future which would be available to Brides and Grooms or your Guests.

The Dan’s Meadow team feel they can offer a unique opportunity for young couples to plan their wedding as they want it with a blank canvas where they can decide what they need and how much help they need to organise their day.

Dan’s Meadow can supply as much or as little help with supply of Marquees, Bridal flowers, Catering, Bar, and a wide selection of Wedding Cars, Horse and Carriage or our bride and Groom could even arrive by Helicopter. Although we are not registered for Wedding Ceremonies, blessings can take place on site.

With the option of Bespoke Wedding packages which include everything you need to make your day special or sole use hire of our complete venue where you can plan your day unique and as you want it at a cost to suit you.

Our venue hire includes Friday Set Up, Saturday for Wedding and Sunday clear up with car collection for those who were drinking and got taxi's home after the reception.

Whatever option you choose we are sure that by choosing Dan's Meadow for your wedding you will have a unique celebration that you will remember for years to come for all the right reasons.

The meadow was the perfect setting
Venue Service

By Daisy and Rob Davidson, on 20 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

Massive thank you to Andrew and the team at Dan’s Meadow for making our #WedFest the most amazing special day! Our vision was to have a festival wedding: one of children running up and down the meadow playing games, friends sitting on picnic blankets and drinking cocktails on the outdoor terrace, all sharing in big communal food... and the meadow has all the space we needed (and more!) to do all that. So many of our married friends told us how sad they were that their own special day had gone so quickly and how little time they actually spent together as a couple whilst trying to talk to guests in amongst the official proceedings. It sounded rubbish (!) so we chose to do something quite informal and relaxed which let us form memories of the day together! The meadow was the perfect setting. And Andrew was just brilliant - we had to call up with all sorts of queries over the preceding months and nothing was ever too much trouble. As the first licensed wedding on the site, he even brought us a framed photo the next day as we sat in the local pub having a family lunch - it’s a gift we’ll really treasure! Lots of our guests decided to camp - either to save money or as a treat for the kids. The facilities were great and we’re told that lots of folk kept the party going at the end of the field until the early hours! These are pictures from friends - we’ll post some official ones when we get them from the photographer in a few weeks :) thanks again, much love, Daisy & Rob xx

Perfect venue
Venue Service

By Sarah and Steve Proctor, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

Thanks to Andi and all the team at Dan’s Meadow for all the help and support with our wedding this September. Dan’s Meadow was just the perfect setting for our dream of an outside ceremony. We held the blessing under the canopy of a tree by the stream. The Teepees looked fab for the reception and the outside space allowed several games to be set up. All the guest commented on how relaxed the day was and what a fantastic setting we had found in Dan’s Meadow! Thanks again for everything, we will definitely be recommending this venue.

Excellent Venue with on site facilities
Venue Service

By Kelsey and Richard, on 12 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017

We had our wedding here in July, and we couldn't have hoped for a better venue. Andrew was absolutely brilliant from the start and always had ideas to help us make our day the day we wanted. Everything went off without a hitch, and everyone commented on how good the venue was for the occasion. We would recommend Dan's Meadow to anyone who wants a good outdoor space, with well-appointed facilities in case the worst happens with the weather on the day! Richard and Kelsey

A big thank you to Andrew and everyone who helped us with our wedding in July. You couldn't have been more helpful. Our guests commented on how relaxed and beautiful the site was, the tepees looked fantastic! The kids loved the camping! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something a bit different with plenty of flexibility to make your day perfect for you.
