About Wherstead Park

The Street, Wherstead, Ipswich
Suffolk, IP9 2BJ

Wherstead Park is wonderful Suffolk venue, set within 17 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds. The unique building provides the perfect setting for your memorable wedding day, with two delightful places to hold your special occasion.

The 18th Century Georgian mansion is full of charm and character. With its impressive entrance hall, the mansion is opulently decorated, providing a truly grand, elegant and warm setting for your celebration. 

Just imagine stepping inside our beautiful Georgian mansion, 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. 

Enjoy an intimate ceremony and reception within the Mansion, or if you looking to extend the celebrations why not move through to the Al Fresco style setting that our amazing Atrium can provide. 

Complete with four full sized trees and glass ceiling, the modern, full-height Atrium is perfect for a contemporary wedding, or glittering wedding reception. The space can accommodate between 70 and 320 guests on round tables for dinner and is ideal for bespoke events, allowing you to have your dream event.

Whether you’re looking for an intimate dinner and party with friends or a larger celebration after your ceremony, our Mansion and Atrium will transform into your perfect wedding venue. Cultural weddings, extravagant receptions or a special day with romantic simplicity, a wedding a Wherstead Park is sure to create treasured memories.

Conveniently located in Suffolk, sitting just off the A137 from Ipswich to Manningtree and easily accessible, Wherstead Park enjoys an idyllic countryside setting known for being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

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
