Located at the heart of the picturesque Suffolk, The Venue at Kersey Mill is the perfect setting for a countryside wedding.

The Venue is perfectly suited for couples searching for an exclusive use, country venue with superb staff and service. We also work closely with our trusted suppliers to ensure that you can create your perfect day.

We offer two beautiful function rooms for your ceremony. The Maltings function suite provides a spacious area for the ceremony and can accommodate up to 150 guests. The room boasts a number of historic features and look gorgeous bathed in natural daylight. For smaller, more intimate occasions, the Kiln Room offers a romantic setting with the capacity for up to 30 guests. The room is full of charm and character and makes a feature of the exquisite chandelier.

These two rooms are also fantastic reception spaces. The Maltings, being the largest, can accommodate 120 guests for a seated meal and 180 for a buffet, while the Kiln room is perfect for smaller buffets and entertainment. A third option is the rustic Gallery Bar, which is perfect for quieter drinks.

Set within 17 acres of beautiful private land, the natural beauty of the surrounding environment provides a stunning backdrop for some of your important wedding photographs.

We have an excellent range of wedding packages on offer for 2020 including:

• All Inclusive Package (venue hire, drinks package, canapes, three course meal, evening buffet/BBQ, chair covers & DJ.)

    What can I say, we were so impressed with The Venue at Kersey Mill when we booked, both of us fell in love with the venue instantly and the love never stopped.
    The team at The Venue are outstanding, offering great advice, completely embraced our ideas and the planning was flawless. Throughout the whole process nothing was too much trouble for Danielle and the team. All elements of the process were handled professionally but in a very relatable way.
    The day was nothing but incredible, everything was handled seamlessly and if there were any challenges I have no idea about them!!!

    I can not recommend The Venue enough and if you are just considering having a look, stop what you are doing, pick up the phone and call them! It is beautiful and the team is outstanding

    Truly the most amazing venue

    “Truly the most amazing venue with such a warm feeling created by Becky and her team. Our day was simply perfect. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Becky. Being that I have such a huge fear of spiders, she had the ceiling of the kiln room swept and cobwebs removed! We both can't thank you all enough.” Wedding date – 9th September 2017

    The day flowed with ease and without any hitches

    "Thank you to Becky and the team for your help in organising our wedding day. The day flowed with ease and without any hitches. I cannot find fault in anything, our day was perfect!
    Booking the 'all-inclusive' package meant we didn't have to worry about booking our own caterer, chair covers or DJ. Each supplier was first class and provided everything we asked for.
    We received so many compliments about the venue and food. The venue is stunning, our photos are so lovely. The food Jamie Lee Smith Catering put on for us was beautiful, everybody loved it. We couldn't be happier." - Wedding date 26th August 2017

    We would highly recommend The Venue

    “We don't know quite how to thank Becky and everyone at The Venue enough. I knew from the second I arrived to visit for the first time that this was the place I wanted to get married. The setting is beautiful and there are so many lovely places for photo opportunities. Becky was so organised and incredibly helpful throughout the year leading up to our wedding and made planning it completely stress free! Furthermore, they were so accommodating about letting us organise extra things for our day such as a macaron tower and bouncy castle - something other venues I'd visited had said we couldn't have. On the day, everything went perfectly and it looked stunning. The little extra details organised by The Venue are such a nice touch. Since our wedding we have had so many comments about how amazing The Venue was, how beautiful it is and how fantastic the staff are. They were all so friendly and definitely did a great job of looking after the bride! I am hoping someone else will get married here just so I can go back! We would highly recommend The Venue to anyone planning their wedding. Many thanks again.” Wedding Date– 18th August 2017

    We will be recommending The Venue

    “Becky, I just wanted to send this message to say a very big thank you to you and your team at The Venue for making our daughters wedding unforgettable. Your attention to detail, checking that we were all catered for made the reception work so smoothly. We had so many positive comments from our guests, about the venue and the catering. The ability to gain access the day before you set up and again on the Sunday morning to clear out stuff was brilliant and just helped us enormously.
    I have enjoyed seeing posts on Facebook especially their last dance. Thank you once again, we will be recommending The Venue you those who are looking in Suffolk.” Wedding date - 5th August 2017"
