Your East Anglian Wedding - October/November 2022 (Issue 57)

Spotlight on... Where to wed in and around this historic port town HINTLESHAM HALL, IPSWICH 01473 652 334 | This Suffolk gem is sure to wow your guests as they wind their way down the tree-lined drive to discover the impressive hall. Surrounded by peaceful mature gardens, the outside of the building has a Georgian frontage and an elegant Tudor feature at the back. There’s a choice of distinctive rooms where you can tie the knot including the Georgian-style Salon. The impressive chandelier and ornate gold-leaf ceiling add to the period charm and there’s space for up to 100 loved ones. For more intimate ceremonies, The Justice on the ground floor overlooking the back lawns has an appeal all of its own and the first floor Carolean is another stunning ceremony space. There are three beautiful function rooms too, including The Salon which with the adjacent Parlour is big enough for up to 135 family and friends to celebrate in style. Relax in the venue’s inviting lounges and at the end of the night you and your guests can retire to the luxuriously furnished bedrooms, many with original timber beams and features. We love... the stunning 17th-century plasterwork ceiling in the Carolean, believed to be one of the finest of its kind in the country. IPSWICH AND BEYOND REGIONAL VENUES 25
