    Brilliant - All of It!

    Our wedding party was under 30 but due to covid it was rearranged 3 times. Zoe, event coordinator was flexible accommodating and responsive. We were keen for our wedding to remain a surprise to guests and we were ably assisted in ensuring that and supported throughout the planning.
    The ceremony was eventually held only 5 days after the hotel reopened. The location and facilities are great. The arrangements for the ceremony were professional but personal and as we hoped it remained a surprise to our guests. We all had a brilliant day - just as we wanted. It was great to put smiles on faces. The service was excellent, food and drinks very good and the accommodation too.
    A huge thanks to Zoe and team at Hintlesham Hall. We have no hesitation in recommending them

    Amazing experience and a gorgeous venue

    We got married during the covid pandemic, which was stressful, but Hintlesham Hall really took care of everything....from moving dates, to food and dietary requirements nothing was too much trouble. They handled the changing situation like true professionals and made our day soo special. Would highly recommend to everyone.

    Best day ever

    Where do I start? Hintlesham Hall just looks grand from the moment you drive up to it, and it certainly doesn't disappoint once you get inside. Zoe, one of the events managers was incredible from start to finish, making sure everything ran smoothly for the day and always answering any random questions I had. We were so looked after, from the canapes to the coffees after the Wedding Breakfast, everything was superb and delicious. Breakfast the next day was amazing as well. The Staff work so incredibly hard and are never far away if you need a hand. Thank you so much for everything. I highly recommend this venue, I just wish we could relieve it all over again!

    Wedding Venue

    Amazing venue for a wedding. Friendly proffessional staff, nothing was too much trouble. We had a small Covid wedding at Hintlesham Hall and it was like a dream come true !

    Bridal suit was breath taking and the food was top quality. The addition of the private cosy lounge with direct access to beautiful gardens and grounds meant everyone could just relax and take it easy.

    Beautiful outdoor wedding

    We had an intimate outdoor wedding in Hintlesham Hall Hotel. The hotel is gorgeous and we couldn't ask for more! We loved it and we were so happy we spent our special day there. The garden was very beautiful and the weather was glorious too.
    Our wedding coordinator Tracy was always available in case we had any questions before the wedding day. She was lovely, easy going, approachable and helpful. On the day of the wedding, Tracy and Zoe made sure that it was stress-free and relaxed for us. They looked after us two well. Thanks ladies! Xx
    We also felt like we rented the whole place and our wedding breakfast was super delicious and tasty.
    Staying at the hotel was also a superb experience!! There were lots of amenities available and there's a spa too!
    Thanks again Hintlesham Hall Hotel for making our wedding day remarkable and memorable for us!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    We got married during the covid pandemic of 2020 and could not have had a better experience at Hintlesham Hall. We had initially planned a big wedding but a last minute change (the week before the wedding) meant we could only have 15 guests. Tracy and her team were amazing and so helpful during this stressful time and ensured we still had an amazing wedding day and meal afterwards.
    The venue is stunning and the staff were extremely hardworking ensuring all aspects of the day ran smoothly.
    We wouldn’t have changed our wedding day and are doing it all again in the spring of 2022, this time hopefully with all our friends and family!

    Perfect Wedding

    We were initially due to marry in Barbados in March until Covid hit. Having stayed at Hintlesham a few times we started to arrange to marry there in April, then covid hit harder. However as soon as the restrictions were lifted and weddings with up to thirty were allowed, we finalised our arrangements with Hintlesham.
    We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The hotel run the day like clockwork. Every single member of staff did what they had to do with complete professionalism. Our wedding breakfast was amazing, every guest commented to us just how good it was. Tracy was lovely in calming my wife both before over the details and on the day too. Oliver was a star all day the way he made everything flow.
    If your looking for a beautiful hotel with stunning grounds & staff that will ensure your day goes perfectly, I can’t recommend Hintlesham highly enough.

    COVID Secure Wedding!

    We originally chose Hintlesham Hall pre lockdown when Tracy showed us round the stunning bridal suite and grounds. When the pandemic hit we had to postpone our May wedding to September 2020. Tracy and Zoe could not have been more understanding and patient throughout the whole process. We lost count of all the emails we sent each time the Government changed the rules. The only way to face it was with a sense of humour and Tracy and Zoe helped us do that. We used Hintlesham Hall suppliers for our flowers, cake, photography, harpist, lighting and evening fireworks and we were absolutely thrilled with all their efforts. Our wedding breakfast was delicious, many of our guests commented how lovely the food was. All the staff at Hintlesham Hall made sure we had such a happy day and now we have so many beautiful memories and photographs to look back on. Even during such a stressful year we never once regretted choosing Hintlesham Hall and we highly recommend it to any future couples looking for their dream wedding venue.

    Amazing wedding venue

    Got married at Hintlesham Hall on 19/08/20 we was the first wedding back after the hotel was able to open again. I can not recommend this venue enough. Tracy could not do more to help us have our special day even in a pandemic. You felt safe and it did not reflect on our day. The food was amazing all our guests are still commenting on this. We use Pengelly photography and had some lovely photographs which we will always treasure. W flowers were so helpful and the flowers were lovely. Was so glad we went ahead with our wedding as it was so covid safe. Thank you to all the amazing staff for making our day so special.

    Wedding of the New Decade

    We chose the All Inclusive option so we could make a weekend of it as some of our friends and family had to come long distances from as far as California, Germany and Amsterdam. The weekend was made even better with the surprise appearance of Elton John (not the real one unfortunately). Tracy and the staff were so efficient and on hand to guide us effortlessly through the day. The food, flowers and cake were all superb as were the photographers and DJ. The setting of Hintlesham Hall just added to the special day. Many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to!! They want us to do it all over again!!

    A perfect venue for our perfect day!

    We got married in October when the trees were golden. The grounds have it all making the photographs just stunning. The team go above and beyond to make your day flow without any stresses, allowing the bride and groom to enjoy every second of it! We chose the All Inclusive package which included 32 rooms meaning all of our loved ones could stay and we could make a weekend of it - I highly recommend doing this. Overall it works out no more expensive! From the moment we booked our special day, the communication and eye for detail from the events team was faultless! If I could do it again and again I would. Thank you Hintlesham Hall for making out day so incredibly special. It is a day we will remember forever.
