|Just what will make your wedding the best ever? Would romance, beauty, privacy and peace top your list? Or maybe the chance to do your own thing; no package deals to fit into. At Priory Hall you design your own day. You have exclusive use of the tudor hall, formal and informal grounds and lake-view dining area. No wedding next door; no keep off the grass signs and definitely no formula to follow. We are there to help you get exactly what you want.
The lake, orchards, nott garden, lawns and walled terrace are yours to enjoy for the day. Exclusively. And even if it rains (which it does less here than anywhere else in the UK), there are ample indoor areas.
But to get the full picture, you have to visit. Just contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07711 321907 or 01473 823185; we're happy to show you around.
We're one of Suffolk's secrets; a countryhouse on the edge of historic Hadleigh hidden to the outside world. You catch a glimpse from the road, but turn into the drive and you feel the real wow factor.
It's the perfect place for a summer wedding reception. Here are real English country gardens; tangled honeysuckle, droopy wisteria and majestic trees. Lawns sweep to the lake and lavender lines the borders. It's truly romantic. Have your civil ceremony in the galleried tudor hall; sip champagne in the gardens and then dine in the lake-view marquee. For the evening you party back in the hall. And best of all, you do it all your own way.
All this and only a short walk or drive to accommodation in Hadleigh or nearby Ipswich or Colchester. Even if you have no local connections, there are lots of great places to stay, including self catering houses and flats suitable for the bridal group. And we are a short drive from major road routes to London, the Midlands or the south.
Most importantly, when you have your wedding reception at Priory Hall, there will be no other group on the premises; no other visitors. It will be yours exclusively.
Your wedding day will move seemlessly between civil ceremony (or arrival drinks if you are marrying elsewhere), reception drinks and photographs, wedding breakfast and then evening party, when the lights come on and it's time to let your hair down.
We have Saturdays newly released for this year......June 23rd; July 21st; August 18th and September 29th. We also have Fridays and midweek dates available.
