Henham Barns

Henham Barns is a unique venue for your special day and has been designed to be as flexible as possible to ensure that you can create your wedding exactly as you wish. We encourage you to make it our own for the weekend and add a highly personal touch. For example you are welcome to choose whichever caterer you desire, whether that is street food or a formal three course wedding breakfast. There is no corkage charge or hidden costs. We allow access from Friday at 9am until 5pm on Sunday to allow you the time to create your day exactly as you please.

The Barns are blessed with a wonderful location, within the tranquillity and peace of the listed Henham Park and approached from the A12 along a long lime avenue. Ten minutes away is beautiful Southwold and the Sunrise Coast.

The Barn’s Suffolk oak beams and red brick walls have been sensitively restored and updated with the best of modern technology, including underfloor heating and colour changing LED lighting, wireless speakers and the option of using a large projector screen and microphones for speeches or photos. Our ethos has been to make sure that the building still has the qualities and character of a barn, but with all the comfort and innovation you might need.

The main areas within the barn complex are fully licensed for wedding ceremonies of all sizes.

Parkland weddings

Should your dream wedding include views over Henham Park we can offer you a choice of outdoor locations. We simply provide the beautiful scenery and allow you to create your perfect wedding. There is a choice of stunning outdoor locations. These include:

  • HENHAM LAKE

You can install a tent or marquee right next to the 11 acre Repton-designed lake. Beautiful sunsets occur over the widespan timber bridge, which can be used for drinks receptions or a lakeside ceremony. Your guests will enjoy a dramatic entrance driving through the archway house known as High Lodge.

  • WALLED GARDEN

Henham Park has a secret hidden 17th century listed, red brick walled garden. One of the lengths is known as a crinkle-crankle (or serpentine) wall and at 110m is one of the longest in Europe. The grass in the walled garden is perfectly mowed and flat. There are four wooden gates and two enormous wooden gates topped with finials. Just outside the walled garden is the last remaining part of the original Henham Hall, featuring double columns and a hunting fresco.

  • BLUEBELL WOODS

During the month of May an area of Henham Woods become a carpet of purple bluebells. A tranquil setting for a fairy lit woodland wedding.

  • PRISTINE PARKLAND

Within the 3,500 acre Henham estate, there are 800 acres of rolling parkland. Parts are planted with majestic oak, lime and horse chestnut trees. Some of the oak trees are the oldest in Europe with girths of 9m or more. Gravel drives undulating within the landscape provide access for your wedding guests and suppliers.
