We have just had our wedding at the high barn on the 28th of July, and from start to finish Sam and the rest of Bressingham Hall team were fantastic! Every level of the wedding process was all done clearly and with little fuss. The venue was just what we wanted for our rustic country wedding and the gardens were gorgeous, especially for photos. The food was something that was important to us and was done superbly. The chocolate mousse is divine! The day itself ran like clockwork thanks to Sam working hard in the background. The hall itself was a lovely way for our families to get to know each other and was lovely addition to wedding. It was beautiful accommodation. We would highly recommend this lovely venue to any newly engaged couples!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did for us last weekend! I didn’t really get the chance to say a proper goodbye in the end, but John and I were so impressed with everything and had such a good day. The food was absolutely delicious and the barn and tent looked amazing. Everything was so professional, and we’ve both also had many compliments from our guests about how the day went off.
It really was very special for us, so thank you for everything you did. We shall certainly recommend the venue to anyone who asks! If you would like any further photos I can certainly send some through.

Thank you so much to the whole team at Bressingham Hall & High Barn for our truly wonderful wedding this weekend!
We had such a magical day and evening. The wedding ceremony was so special, the catering all day was delicious and the organisation throughout was just fantastic. It really was our perfect day.
Darrin and I felt relaxed and happy all day and enjoyed the ambiance and atmosphere at this very beautiful and special venue. And so far, everything we are hearing from our guests - they did too!
Thank you all so much x
I attended the wedding of Elly and John yesterday . I wanted to email you to to offer feedback as I have never experienced such an excellent wedding venue/ reception in my many years ! As a consultant in Hospitality I really feel that you you deserve an excellent review for the event you managed yesterday. The staff were friendly yet highly professional, from the initial drinks to the excellent and highly efficient meal service. The 3 course meal was truly delicious, all served at the right temperature, with fresh perfectly cooked vegetables and pork. The cinnamon ice cream was extremely flavoursome and likewise served at the correct temperature. Your chefs should be truly congratulated as this is not easy to achieve with large numbers.
I also greatly admired the decor and relaxed yet formal ambience as well as the beautiful gardens of course. My sincere thanks for such a great experience.
Thank you to all at Bressingham for making our day perfect. We were only the 2nd wedding here and I was a little apprehensive however it all went perfectly. I cannot thank the staff enough who were all lovely but also a huge thank you to Samantha who did everything she could to make our day special. She really cares about her job and it shows. The food was great, service great, venue is stunning and everyone was buzzing afterwards. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thank you all!

We held our wedding here at the end of March and we couldn't have been more happy... From start to finish Sam, our wedding advisor, made sure the whole day was perfect for us, listening to everything we wanted. We both felt totally relaxed knowing every detail had been covered and organised. The barn where the ceremony was held had a lovely atmosphere with its charm of beams and special lighting. We had some really nice group shots in the courtyard area, as the weather was so lovely. The grounds of Bressingham Hall are so beautiful with wonderful backdrops for special photos. It was so nice to be all in one place with no travelling between the ceremony and reception. We had an amazing day and so did our guests, we just couldn't fault anything.

James and I had the most wonderful wedding at Bressingham Hall and High Barn! Sam and her team did an amazing job helping create a relaxed and calm atmosphere for our special day. It just couldn't of been more perfect. We were one of the first weddings at this new venue and we highly recommend it to any new couples considering it as a possible venue choice!

I would like to thank all of the staff for making Katie and Jacob's wedding day so special. Nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend Bressingham hall and High Barn to anyone who is thinking of getting married. Having the accommodation in the same grounds as the venue is such a great idea. No worries about getting to and from the ceremony and reception as it is all in the same grounds. The accommodation had everything that you need, there was enough space for everyone not to be in each other's way. The bedrooms were comfortable. Well done.
We had our wedding at this gorgeous venue in June 2017 and had the most amazing day. The barn for the ceremony is beautiful and the marquee for wedding breakfast is perfect! Plus the on site accommodation made the whole weekend extra special and it was nice to be on site and to have somewhere special to get ready. The gardens at Bressingham are stunning and provide a great backdrop for photos, our guests loved wandering through them in the evening as well. The staff are great and made sure our day ran as planned and the food provided by chopping block was amazing, we had so many compliments!
