About Wherstead Park

The Street, Wherstead, Ipswich
Suffolk, IP9 2BJ

Wherstead Park is a beautifully diverse wedding venue located just on the outskirts of Ipswich, Suffolk. It boasts both a Mansion and Atrium perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions of all sizes. We’re big believers that your wedding should be personalised to you, which is why we see Wherstead Park as your very own blank canvas, complete with all the tools for you to create the wedding of your dreams.

Our Georgian mansion offers the perfect setting for you to you say ‘I do’; ascend the grand staircase to exchange vows under the sparkling chandelier as your friends look on from the balcony above and foyer below. In the summer months, gather on the lawn or amongst the roses to enjoy drinks and canapes in the sunshine, while in the winter months our classic drawing rooms within the mansion provide a cosy spot for your drinks reception.

The Atrium with its beautiful fairy lit trees, can be transformed into anything from an ‘Al Fresco’ style dining space to a contemporary warehouse party. Cultural weddings, extravagant receptions or a special day with romantic simplicity are all at home under our glass-topped roof.

It’s easy for us to describe our beautiful venue to you, but to truly experience how Wherstead Park can help you to create your dream wedding, it’s best to come and see it for yourselves and let us help guide you through the process.

Hi Emma, Firstly I just want to say thank you for making sure the day ran smoothly. We couldn't have done it without you, Nikki and the rest of the staff at Wherstead. Everyone was complementing us on how well organised the event was, and we really appreciate the extra effort the whole team went to.

Thank You!

Hi Emma & Nikki, Just to say, a massive THANK YOU! to you both, for all your hard work leading up to and on our wedding day. A thank you to your amazing team as well. We are both very grateful for the time and hard work you put in to helping us pull off our big day, especially since having to take over the reigns so close to the date! Your organisation, communication and ability to bring everything together was superb and this certainly reflects in the response and feedback we've received from many of our friends and family. Everyone had a fantastic time! You're both fabulous, and we have no doubt that between you, you are going to do great things up at Wherstead Park and we couldn't recommend you more!

The occasion you always dream of
Venue Service

By Doug and Elaine Pearson, on 28 Jun 2016

Good morning Lesley, Nikki & Alice Elaine & I would like to thank you all for the fantastic support, advice and enthusiasm your team gave, to make our daughter’s wedding an absolutely brilliant occasion, one you always dream of. The amount of care and attention you provided from the very start of this journey has been immense and throughout the whole process you gave your time freely and presented yourselves with such friendly professionalism which made us feel like real VIP’s. The location of Wherstead Park is perfect, just so convenient to all major routes for people travelling from away, and the ambience of Wherstead Park is just perfect for an impressive and individual wedding. The stairway is beyond beautiful, the Atrium also a real winner for us, and the fact that we could dress this up into a ‘picnic’ style with REAL GRASS was a big bonus. It was received very well by all who attended. Every guest, without exception was very impressed with the food and service. Please pass on our appreciation to Pat and her team for this. However, although we are repeating ourselves, the biggest asset you have is yourselves. You and your team were AWESOME, you all displayed such enthusiasm to make it a special day for us all. I also understand that you were there until the early hours of the morning, (apologies for that) which again proves what a wonderfully understanding team you are. When Elaine & I look to celebrate any future ‘family’ events, we would not hesitate at looking at Wherstead Park again, that's for sure. Thank you very much for your services, it has been a great pleasure for us. Best regards Doug & Elaine Pearson

We celebrated our first daughters marriage at Wherstead Park on 1/8/15 and have to say it was truly amazing. Wherstead Park did a fabulous job, nothing was too much trouble. The service us and ours guests received was first class. Fabulous venue with superb grounds, highly recommended. Lesley Frost the wedding co-or donator is brilliant!
