Priory Hall


Information For Priory Hall

At Priory Hall you have exclusive use of a stunning country venue in grounds that include a lake, orchards, knot garden with fountain, walled terrace, large lawns and more. Our Tudor hall seats 120 for a civil ceremony and our curved marquee can cater for 150 guests. You’ll deal with the same person throughout from first visit to the wedding day giving you all the help you need, when you need it. Your wedding will be like no other and that’s how we all like it to be.

Priory Hall is long established in East Anglia as a premier luxury wedding venue yet you can still surprise guests who will never have seen it before. That’s because with only 25 weddings a year, we keep our exclusivity and you keep the surprise factor. And they will be surprised….as one commented, ‘if Carlsberg made weddings, they’d make them at Priory Hall’.

What’s so special then? Well it starts when you come through the big iron gates. Then you walk into the galleried Tudor hall where armour shines and old weapons decorate the walls. Once in the gardens there’s no end to the photo spots whether that’s by a fountain, around the lake or in the shade of old orchard trees.

The evening party is back in the Tudor hall and surrounding walled garden. Floodlights decorate the building and fairylights make a magical setting.

We set everything up for you so you can add your finishing touches. We even provide blankets and umbrellas and a cash bar that will serve exactly what you want (at normal Suffolk pub prices). And to make sure your day is just as you want it you can choose your own suppliers either from our list of recommendations or elsewhere. And there’s no corkage on drink you bring in for the reception and meal. We don’t call the shots but we do try to fit in with your wishes so that your day will truly be unique.

You have access the afternoon before and morning after to set up and clear away. Cars can be parked overnight in the large car park so people who have partied can walk to nearby accommodation or taxi home.

We have capacity for 120 people at the civil ceremony and 150 for the dining marquee and evening party. Everything you need is already in place; you have loads of time to add everything you want and have a calm, carefree and truly memorable wedding day

I have huge pleasure in inviting you to enjoy the beautiful hall and grounds at Priory Hall Wedding Venue. My job as weddings manager is to make sure you can bring your wedding dreams to life and to help you find exactly what you want. I am a journalist, I’ve been a restauranteur and now I’m a psychologist (and gardener), so I’ve got loads of experience to draw on. And because I live on site I am there when you need me.
