The Setting

Bruisyard Country Estate is a beautiful venue for a three-day wedding.

The country house is set at the heart of the Estate, in beautiful, informal and varied 700-acre grounds. It has accommodation for 30, is licensed for weddings and has event capacity for up to 140 seated guests in the Barn or 30 seated in the Hall’s elegant dining room. The food is prepared by an expert chef who will work with you to create amazing menus that meet your requirements perfectly, serving the best regional and seasonal produce for you to enjoy.

Bruisyard Country Estate, at its oldest, dates back over 700 years, incorporating the fourteenth-century remains of a nunnery. The rest of this beautiful house is early 17th century, with an impressive fascia onto a gravelled sweep of drive and three storeys, including the converted attics.

The Barn, meanwhile, provides a convenient multi-use event space in a pretty black-panelled traditional barn: a beamed dining hall that seats up to 140, a separate galleried medieval hall licensed for wedding ceremonies, a courtyard with seating and a few of the venue’s 15 bedrooms (easier to access for some guests). Light floods through large windows, some opening straight into the grounds.

The location of the estate is glorious: tucked away in wonderful Suffolk countryside, accessed along country lanes, seemingly completely removed from the hustle and bustle of 21st-century life. It’s about ten minutes from the A12 and just over that to Saxmundham railway station, from which trains take around two hours to London via Ipswich.

The Vibe

The Bruisyard Estate promises guests time to treasure and time for pleasure.

What shines out from Bruisyard is its ambience: it’s rich in history and, following an extensive refurbishment, beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished and the perfect country home for a couple and their guests for a glorious Wedding Weekend. A longstanding Suffolk family privately owns it, but it’s yours for the duration of your stay.

Bruisyard is full of texture, interest and warmth, somewhere to properly relax, whether that’s over a prolonged breakfast in the Hall’s sizeable domestic kitchen, a Sunday barbeque with garden games, hide-and-seek in the Hall’s long corridors, or in the flurry and excitement of preparations for and celebrations of the wedding itself.

Guests are plunged into greenery, with a sense of being at peace and not a house to be seen in the surrounding countryside. They had better pack their swimming costumes and take money for an ice cream (or winter hot chocolate), as the upmarket coastal resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold are only 25 and 35 minutes away, respectively.

The service level is high and can be adapted to your requirements. Whether you want the small team at Bruisyard to sort out every detail of your stay, making it a fully catered and concierge experience, or to cater for yourself and plan your own time, you’ll find yourself at home. The Estate team’s policy is to be adaptable, to listen and advise as required, and to ensure that the break meets everyone’s requirements.

Bruisyard Country Estate is the kind of place that lends itself just as well to a jumble of wellies, dogs, beach kit and Land Rovers outside the door, as it does to black tie, exquisite gowns, flickering candles, cocktails and lavish floral displays.
