We got married at this gorgeous venue 3 weeks ago. From the moment we viewed the barn, gardens and hall we fell in love with their beautiful charm. Sam is friendly, very knowledgeable and a true professional wedding planner. This is also reflected in the staff who couldn’t do enough for us on the day. Our guests loved the venue too and complimented the stunning setting, delicious food, great idea of a gin bar and our surprise of a ride on the carousel for everyone! We effortlessly glided our way through the day and had such a fabulous time here. Would totally recommend Bressingham Hall & High Barn!

Where to even start? The most perfect day off the back off the most wonderful chilled planning experience. From the moment we met Sam she bent over backwards for us, dealing with sometimes last minute thoughts and worries and putting our minds at total ease. The waitresses were all smiley and lovely and the espresso martinis were Sam has a wonderful eye for attention to detail and took the stress of setting up our wedding straight off me! I was over the moon with how everything looked. Martin, the chef and his team did an amazing job of the food and helping set up our cheese cake! We had a wonderful memory table set up for our friend which looked so gorge. From letting us have our dogs with us all day, walking down the aisle, canapés, the carousel, everything was perfect! I wish I could do it all over again. The venue itself needs no words. It’s absolutely stunning!! Thank you so much Sam and team

Beautiful venue, house and gardens, it couldn't have been more perfect for our wedding day, and the sun shone for us! My husband and I recently had our wedding at the high barn, Sam was fab and helped us organise all the little things that made our day extra special, the gallopers, a mojito bar, wonderful food and drinks. Our day couldn't have been better!
Response from Bressingham Hall and High Barn

Bressingham Hall and High Barn is the most perfect venue to get married - for us it was love at first sight, the one and only venue we looked at! The barn and grounds are breathtaking and the perfect backdrop to a rustic/vintage themed wedding. We had so many compliments on our choice of venue and it was the perfect size for our small(ish) wedding although I know it can cater and accommodate for many more guests. Staying in the Hall with our family the night before and night of our wedding was also an added bonus and made our whole celebration so special. The team were so professional and the bar was well stocked and ready to go! Sam made sure that the day and all the timings went like clockwork, taking all the stress out of the day for us. Bressingham Hall and High Barn is spectacular, come rain or shine (and it rained for us) but the weather did not put a dampener on our day at all as the Barn was able to cater for all we needed and I barely noticed the weather outside! Luckily the rain cleared by early evening and we were still able to take advantage of using the Gardens as a stunning backdrop to some of our photos. I can not recommend this venue enough

Just had the wedding of a lifetime at Bressingham Hall. Sam, the venue manager, was a calming influence throughout and supported us from start to finish. From the moment we walked in a year ago, Sam helped us organise our day and recommended a multitude of suppliers, all of whom were fantastic. The team at Bressingham Hall couldn't have been more attentive to our needs throughout the day and allowed everything to run perfectly. The venue itself is just so idilic and gives plenty of space for guests to relax. We were allowed access to the entirety of the beautiful Bressingham Gardens. The ride on the gallopers at the steam museum at the end of the day was a particular highlight. We couldn't have chosen a better place to have a our wedding. Ed and Lisa x
