Just a little note to say a huge thank you for being such an integral part of our special day.
Thanks to you, we celebrated our wedding in such beautiful, perfect surroundings and made so many happy memories with our family and friends.
Your advice and support in the lead up and throughout our preparations was invaluable.
There are so many things we want to feedback positively on but I would probably end up writing a novel!!
Since our day we have received so many compliments on the food – especially the steak. A handful of people have told us that it was the best wedding food they ever had!! Please feed this back to chef.
Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding so special, perfect, fantastic!Tessa and Will
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
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 😍Jacqui Mayes
This setting has to be one of best kept secrets in the UK. The venue is stunning and the gardens are one of my all time favourite places to visit and spend time.
The Winter garden is magical at the top of the year. The River Birch forming a skeletal frame for the other plants to stand out against.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Bressingham Hall to any one looking for something super special for their big day.Jody Lidgard – Outdoor Spaces Landscape Architect

We had a lovely wedding at Bressingham, the barn and gardens make a beautiful venue. Thanks to Sam and her team for making sure that everything went smoothly from the day we booked right through to the day itself.Phil Jolly
As a local wedding photographer, I’m always delighted when I get booked to photograph at Bressingham Hall & High Barn. It’s a stunning setting and Sam & her team couldn’t be more helpful & accommodating. There are so many amazing photo opportunities, from the ceremony in the light and airy barn itself, to the many acres of incredible gardens (wonderful for a stroll with my couples as the sun goes down). Really looking forward to photographing there again in a few weeks, and next year! 😊Nicki Thurgar
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!Kirsty Amber London
What a fabulous venue for a wedding or special occasion. We were looked after by Sam and her team in the most kind caring and professional manner. I would highly recommend Bressingham Hall.Vic Curry
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 ❤️❤️❤️🥰🥰🥰😍Chantelle Thompson
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!Sharon Tooke
Where to start?? We had our wedding here in October and it was just perfect. Here are a few reasons why:
The gardens speak for themselves but the hall itself is just magical. We were shocked at the amount of decoration and small touches that were included. We also stayed at the house which is just beautiful and really helped us to prepare for the day.
Wow. The food!!!! We knew from the tasting day it would be good but it was incredible. It was hot, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. We had the pizza oven in the evening and we have had so many compliments from our guests on the quality of the food.
We were really made to feel like we could personalize the whole day to us. We had a drinks trough and gin bar which were wonderfully presented and again, lots of guests loved this. We were able to fully personalise all of the drinks we wanted.
Sam made our day run perfectly. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and she checked on us regularly to make sure we were happy but without imposing on the day at all. She was quick to respond to emails before the wedding and helped us get everything perfect so thank you so so much Sam!!
All in all, Bressingham was perfect. I can’t really say much more than that- our day was everything we had hoped for, but also so much moreJade McDonald
Bressingham Hall hosted our works Christmas party this year. From start to finish Sam was super efficient and so accommodating. The evening was fabulous from a delicious 3 course meal to a packed dance floor. It’s such a beautiful setting that made us all feel very Christmassy. Thanks for having us and see you again next year.Donna Thomas
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.Rosina Clark
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!Laura & James Palas
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.Dawn & Chris
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!Emily & Jason Doyle
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 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!
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.
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!Jake and Alice
We had our wedding at Bressingham in May, the day couldn’t have gone any better. Sam and her team made the whole experience stress free and we had so many compliments on the venue and the food. We had an amazing day!!!Louise and Liam Cook
