For this is the golden morning of love ...
By Chris and Kathy Turner-Hart, on 16 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Feb 2018
My wonderful wife and I decided to get married at Hintlesham Hall after spending significant time researching the best venues for weddings in the UK. Hintlesham was referenced in The Telegraph's top 20 wedding venues (link below), and, as would become apparent, for good reason !
We opted for the intimate package, and payed for guests to stay over at Hintlesham Hall for 2 evenings.
The preparations were all handled by Hintlesham's Julie and Tracy, who made planning the wedding a breeze. They also recommended great local connections for the cake, hair stylist, string quartet and florist, which removed any logistical challenges.
The wedding day itself was everything we had hoped for and more - great venue with beautiful classic features and architecture throughout, michelin star quality food, lovely spacious rooms, a great ceremony and the bringing together of two special families.
Thank you Hintelsham for making our day so special, and giving us a memory that will stay with us until our final days.
The perfect venue for our perfect day...

Hintlesham Hall is one those places you go to and instantly it feels right. My bride to be and I had been looking at venues all around Essex and Suffolk but when we walked into Hintlesham Hall we just felt like we had walked into a home. From day one Tracy and the team couldn't do enough for us and any problems became a non issue. Tracy ensured a stress free lead up to the day and her attention to detail and calm demeanour made everything seem so easy. When it came to the day many remarked on how the staff were attentive but invisible and we honestly couldn't have wished for a more perfect and smooth wedding day.
We booked the whole venue for the day and i would thoroughly recommend booking an extra day there if you can. Everyone loved their rooms and the service and I didn't hear a single negative thing which is truly remarkable.
We feel a part of new community and we can't wait to go back for a catch up over afternoon tea and go through the wedding album.
If you are looking for a great venue with fantastic rooms, exceptional service and an excellent rate then you need look no further.
Our personal thanks to Tracy and the fantastic team at Hintlesham Hall if we could do it all again we would :-)

We fell in love with Hintlesham Hall at our first visit; Julie (our wedding coordinator) was brilliant and sold the venue for what it is, a beautiful stunning location, fit for any wedding.
Nothing was too much trouble and Julie was really great at tweaking parts of our plan as and when we needed to.
On the day, all the staff were genuinely amazing, everything went to plan and was on time. We didn’t add chair covers or over dress the venue with flowers etc because we loved how it was ‘normally’, large mirrors, massive oil portraits on the walls, gold and red furnishings, why cover it all up! Beautiful!
The food was amazing and everyone commented on how good the service was, waiting staff were very attentive without being invasive, wine flowed and no one was left with an empty glass. Even with 14 children ranging from 4 months up to 12 years, every one was accommodated for, even my 3 yr old deciding he wanted ice cream for dinner was no problem for them! I know you get what you pay for but nothing was too much trouble.
We booked the whole venue so most of our guests could stay and share the whole experience, I would definitely recommend this if it’s within budget. To share breakfast with everyone was extra special particularly because we had people from far and wide.
A truly amazing wedding made extra special because of a stunning location and because of the hard work by all the staff.
Thank you Hintlesham Hall!
A day to remember....

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Julie and the Hintlesham team who were extremely professional and provided excellent customer service. They all went above and beyond the call of duty and made sure our day went smoothly. We also had guests attending with severe allegies, which was accomodated without any issues.

What a perfect day!
We booked Hintlesham Hall back in February 2016 got married in July 2017. Tracy (wedding co-ordinatior) is very knowledgable and made us feel at ease throughout.
The food and service was exemplary and for us this was very important as we work in the industry ourselves.
We really can’t recommend Hintlesham Hall enough it was perfect from start to finish.
I only wish we could do it all over again.
Very very special day

Everything went perfectly. Tracey and the team worked very hard from first booking the venue in 2016 to the Wedding Day on 3rd June 2017. We chose the complete package and managed to accommodate all our guests at the Hall. No one complained about anything and the team even managed to book a brilliant sunny day despite the heavens opening the day before. We would really like to do it all again - every year!
So we can thoroughly recommend the Hall for your wedding - frankly given some of the other venues we looked at - why would you go anywhere else!

We had our wedding at Hintlesham Hall March 2017 and what a fabulous day it was. Tracy was our planner and she was amazing from the planning stage to the actual day, even accomodating all our little requests. Our guests even commented on how fantastic the food, service, staff & accommodation was. The hotel was warm comfortable & homely feel and we fell in love with it on our first visit and knew right away it was the venue to celebrate our wedding day. Were going back to spend a couple of days for our 1st anniversary and cant wait.
The best day ever!

We got married about a year ago at Hintlesham Hall and recently returned for our 1st Anniversary.
The day flowed so smoothly as we moved between the Salon, library and drawing room. Julie seemed genuinely excited about the wedding and to enjoy the details and helping plan the day. They are so organised and had thought about so many things that hadn't occurred to me, offering input and guidance. Julie arranged all of our personal touches and decorations perfectly so I didn't have to stress and rush in the morning, or try and find someone to do it for me.
The venue itself was beautiful, with character and charm. Sitting by the fire was the epitome of a winter wedding for me and we even had a little snow.
We were honestly all so relaxed on the day and didn't have to think about a thing. Everybody loved the food, and breakfast was a hit (for those of us that made).
Pure luxury and I thoroughly recommend the hotel as a wedding or event venue, or generally just for a break! I am looking forward to trying the afternoon tea.
Excellent personal service

We recently got married at Hintlesham Hall and we have to say the day ran so smoothly and was perfect. The venue itself is so beautiful and has lovely detail for those photo opportunities, we would recommend the Long Gallery on the first floor for Bride and Groom shots! The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. The food is delicious and presented brilliantly and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. This venue is perfect for weddings and the staff cater to your every need. We would definitely recommend booking with Hintlesham Hall!
OH MY GOD !!!!!

Well, i can honestly say that we had the best wedding that anybody has had ! Julie Dolphin and Tracy Carter and the team gave us the most perfect wedding day we could have wished. The food was superb and everything else about the day. If you want a real classy and sophisticated wedding then Hintlesham Hall is the venue to choose !

We had our wedding here in early February 2012. Hintlesham Hall was the first and only wedding venue we visited and after the exceptionally warm welcome, which showed their clear professionalism and attention to detail we booked 2 days later. The preparation was perfect- Tracy and her team look after you so well, keeping you on track and ensuring it remains as stress-free as possible. The day itself was perfect. From breakfast served in the wedding suite at the perfect time, a wonderful lunch for the bridal party which ensured everyone was happy relaxed. The wedding was truly perfect- the staff are so professional ( ask for Renee as Mc) the food amazing and so many people said it was the best ever wedding. Even the heavy snow in the evening and next morning did not hamper things. Truly the perfect wedding venue, I would never hesitate in recommending Tracy and her wonderful team to anyone.
Perfect Venue, Perfect Day....!

Hintlesham Hall is a fantastic venue to hold your wedding.
Beautiful Venue, Beautiful Grounds, Amazing Food and Wonderful Staff!
From the moment we visited the first time, we knew it was the venue for us. Immediately, the staff were pleased to greet us, offer us somewhere to sit and a drink whilst we were shown the options available followed by a tour of the hall. After visiting several venues with no one keen to talk to us, let alone offer us a drink, we immediately knew that the staff at Hintlesham were going to look after us.
On the day itself, we had the most amazing time and the staff and so helpful, you cannot fault them. The staff were there whenever you needed them but not in the way or intrusive. We didn't have to worry about anything. Tracy Carter was a superb planner who paid great attention to detail, which meant the day went seamlessly. Rene ensured everyone was well looked after during the meal and the food was fantastic.
We have just celebrated our first wedding anniversary there and didn’t want to leave! We have so many friends who have said they wish it was the wedding day all over again and it was the best wedding they have ever attended and the best venue in Suffolk!
If you want a fantastic venue, no stress, wonderful staff, the opportunity to have exclusive use of the venue (which we did and I would thoroughly recommend) then Hintlesham Hall is the place to book! I cannot rate them highly enough. Everything was perfect.
