Customer Reviews

I just wanted it write to say a great big thank you. We had the most amazing, perfect day ever!! Everything went so smoothly & so many people complimented us on how beautiful the barn was. Also can I just say how fantastic all the waiting staff were too, service was completely faultless & they all knew exactly where they were going & what they were giving to who!! Now the food, so many people commented on how amazing the food was, we already knew it was going to be fantastic but so nice to hear our guests agree!! Thank you again Katie for a truly magical day to remember forever!

Amazing wedding venue, the house and barn were beautiful and we had such an awesome weekend!

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting for our Wedding. Bruisyard Hall and Barn ticked more boxes than we realised we had and the idea of spreading our celebrations over the Bank Holiday weekend with our closest family and friends just sold us the venue. In the lead up to the wedding, our appointed event organiser helped us at every step of the way, no matter the question, they were always there. Our alternative cake, a beautiful stack of brownies, was one of our many additional requests met by the team, and they were heavenly! We are so lucky to have been able to create so many wonderful memories in this beautiful house and its gardens as well as having a wedding day, that despite the rain, was amazing in every way. A massive thank you to the brilliant staff at Bruisyard who could not do enough for us during our stay and made the ‘big day’ run so smoothly. We wouldn’t change a thing and would recommend a weekend wedding (definitely at this venue) to everyone.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for such an amazing day. We have only been home a few hours however we have had no end of compliments from our family and friends saying how fantastic the day was and especially the venue. We can’t fault you and your services. Thank you for all of your hard work making our day so very special. The food was amazing so please pass our compliments onto your fabulous chef. Can we keep your pizza chef?! The pizzas were delicious! The music was also fabulous so please pass our thanks onto Dreamwave for putting on tunes that kept our guests dancing until the very last song! Bethany, Thank you for being so approachable and friendly yet still so professional, you answered all of our questions along the way and made us feel instantly at ease. Alan, Thank you for giving us the sunniest November day we’ve had in years! You promised me the day I booked the wedding last year that we would be looked after and have amazing weather and you were right! You and your staff are fantastic!

We are so pleased we chose Bruisyard Hall for our wedding reception - the beautiful barn and stunning setting was exactly what we wanted, for us, it was definitely the best venue we could have chosen.

We cannot thank everyone at Bruisyard enough for everything you did to help to make our wedding day so special. The venue is utterly beautiful and all of our guests commented on what a gorgeous setting it was - a hidden gem in Suffolk. Having the hall for the evening before just added to the whole occasion enabling all of our wedding party to spend that extra special time together. The rooms were all so beautiful and our evening meal from the kitchen was delicious! All of you staff were incredible in helping our day to run smoothly and take away any stresses there could have been. You had everything in hand on the day, which meant that Stephen and I were able to completely relax and just enjoy being together with everyone we love. The permanent smiles on our faces in the pictures say it all! Even before the event, your communication and support in the planning was incredible so thank you.

Just perfect. I cannot express just how fabulous Bruisyard Hall and Barn are as a wedding venue. The setting is idyllic. The staff are extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Special mention must be made of Katie who ensured that my daughter’s wedding was a truly magical experience. Thank you all.

When we got engaged we were both so excited for our big day. We had so many ideas and looks we liked we decided on a two year engagement so that we could plan and save for everything we wished for. We both really liked the look of a barn for the wedding venue so we decided this would be the first thing we research and book. We came across Bruisyard Hall online and instantly wanted to see more so we booked a viewing. As soon as we walked into the barn we both felt like it was perfect. It was open, bright and airy. We loved how the space was split into two rooms. It was a great size for the 70 guests we were inviting. We were also shown around the house and it was such a show stopper. Everything about it was breathtaking. We loved the idea of having somewhere to stay on the grounds of the wedding venue. We booked Bruisyard Hall a few weeks later as nothing else compared. After that there was no stopping us. We went cake tasting at Marcons and More kitchen and decided on four tiers instead of three as the flavours were so delicious it was hard to choose. We traveled down to London to visit the Sophie and Luna studio to meet Sandra who makes beautiful dried and preserved flower designs. We booked Pick A Lilly florist Norwich for our fresh flowers. Katie was able to create stunning flower designs for our big day. I had Flamingo Amy Norwich do my Hair and Make Up. She is very talented in what she does. Matt’s suit was a Hugo Boss from Hatters Norwich. My dress was from La Creme Norwich designer Willowby by Watters. Both stores have amazing customer service and couldn’t have helped us more to look our best. For our decorations we brought vintage tins off Ebay for our fresh flowers. We brought glass bowls from local charity shops for our sweet table and we also made a lot of things ourselves to give our wedding that real personal touch. Our most cherished moment on our wedding day was having our portraits taken by our photographer Dominic Whiten who we met at a wedding fair held at Bruisyard Hall. It was the first real moment we could laugh and talk as husband and wife!

Having got engaged in Southwold in November of 2016, we decided we really wanted to get married in Suffolk despite living in London. A set of our parents live in a village local to Bruisyard and suggested we had a look around. Fortunately, one of Bruisyard Hall and Barn Open Day events was coming up and we visited the venue. We knew instantly, that we could see ourselves along with all of our favourite people, celebrate our big day here. The Barn was set up for a wedding and we fell in love with the place. I particularly enjoyed the fact that we could have hay bales added to the grass lawn for guests to sit on after the ceremony – such a beautiful setting to look back on the Barn and House. We also loved the idea that our close friends and family could stay with us the night before and after the wedding too as the majority of our guests were travelling from London. Needless to say, we booked the venue for July 2018 and the planning process was seamless. Katie was just an email or phone call away and despite living 150 miles away, we didn’t once feel stressed or worried about planning our wedding. We visited the venue once more to try the food and that was the only stressful thing – we wanted to have it all because it was so delicious! Our guests also commented on how accommodating the chef was and the evening pizza oven went down a storm! We also organised a BBQ at the house through Katie and a big cooked breakfast for the morning after the wedding – much needed and gave us one less thing to have to think about. Katie was also really helpful in advising us of recommended suppliers. Things like the DJ with Dreamwave Events and our Florist, Moat Farm Flowers. Our wedding day was typically the hottest day of the year, and the staff were fantastic. They were so relaxed and made sure our guests were comfortable. Having access to the barn the day before was really useful too. We truly had the best day of our lives and Team Bruisyard are to thank for that.

The Bruisyard Hall and Barn team gave us a better wedding than we ever could have hoped for. I cannot recommend them highly enough. The venue itself is outstanding - having the whole estate for an entire weekend gave us the opportunity to extend our time with our guests in pure luxury. The team were so supportive from the second we booked and nothing was too much of a problem for them. The food was wonderful and the staff on the day worked tirelessly to make it the best day for us. I cannot recommend getting married at Bruisyard enough - you will have an incredible time!

Alex & I just wanted to thank you all so much for making our wedding day such an incredible day. From the minute we decided to use your venue, you made this such a wonderful experience and everyone was wow'ed by the Hall & Barn. From my many (!) questions, our numerous visits, the set up on the day, the care & support you provided & the genuine joy you took in being a part of our day when you must see so many, really meant a lot, so thank you! With love, Sarah & Alex

I would like to thank you so very much for a wonderful day. It was truly spectacular and everyone enjoyed themselves to such an extent that a friend who I’ve not seen dance in nearly 40 years chose to make his debut to Blurs Parklife. Lots of thick heads the next morning but in a good way! Thank you once again and I wish you and your team all the best for the future.

Just wanted to say what an amazing day Michael and I had on Thursday. We keep reliving all the moments and are still buzzing with a range of emotions. All the guests said how lovely the venue was and how attentive and friendly the whole staff/team were. They loved the meals and canapés too. Can't believe it's all over now! Thank you for all your help.

We couldn’t let the moment go without thanking you for your input towards what proved to be an excellent day for everyone. The weather was superb, the venue proved to be ideal. Everyone remarked how the event had come together and ran extremely smoothly. We were delighted by the reaction of family and guests resulting in a most memorable experience for us all. From the time Katie joined us to plan the final catering and hospitality arrangements for the event, we were confident that she would deliver at every level. The food proved to be excellent. Thanks to ‘Johnny’ , Izzy and the rest of the team for their tireless work on the day, working in the background to provide what appeared to be an endless stream of food! We would recommend Bruisyard Hall ‘outside catering’ to anyone considering such an event and would be very happy to discuss our excellent experience. As Katy would inevitably say, “perfect”.

We held a drinks party at Bruisyard Hall and it was fabulous. You can't beat the warmth and elegance of the Hall. the canapes and fizz were first class and made from locally sourced ingredients, which is a really nice touch. The team looked after us really well.

Had my wedding here, could not recommend this place enough, so relaxing and tranquil. A truly amazing venue, with such helpful staff!

We decided to marry at Bruisyard Hall after visiting many open days and loving what we were sold & the venue. Unfortunately, upon our arrival they had not dealt with wasps nests which they deny all knowledge of (however the groundsman & house owner told us they thought they had “been dealt with”. Resulting in multiple guests being stung numerous times. They state that this was a “natural phenomenon” and therefore unavoidable... On our wedding day, the water to the house stopped working. Leaving the groom & guests 1.5 hours before the wedding, to have to shower in one of the barn rooms. Again, they have said that this isn’t a regular occurrence however the part had been replaced in March, leading to us believing diffferently. You are unable to use multiple showers in the house as they do not drain. In fact, one drained into the fire alarm system meaning yet another workman has to attend, not to mention the stress this caused us. Bruisyard state that it’s unavoidable due to the age of the house, but that because they got a workman out quickly it’s all ok...! They are terrible conmunicators, emails are not responded to in a timely fashion. They have a high turnover of wedding coordinators, therefore there is no consistency. When I asked for some of the £14,000 we spent back.. they have given me £300. I could describe more issues!! Lovely setting, shame about the service. AVOID.

Amazingly beautiful venue at a very reasonable price. This is a hidden gem in the suffolk countryside. We stayed in the hall for two nights with our family and friends for our wedding yesterday. We could not have dreamed of a better wedding day. We had amazing sunny weather yesterday for our wedding. Our wedding was the most perfect day and this is definitely down to Serena and the Bruisyard team. Serena managed our day start to finish from little requests, getting people in the right place, ensuring everything ran smoothly and Serena could not have been more accomodating and certainly made us feel like planning a wedding is easy! All of the team are lovely and make the day and stay very special. The food and drink was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful. All of our family and friends loved Bruisyard and I think we will be returning to stay in the hall for a family break. This is certainly a very special venue for weddings offering a level of privacy and beauty which other venues just cannot compete with. An added benefit which is fantastic, is that this venue is dog friendly which is great for a real family break and wedding experience! Hopefully we will see the team soon!

Thank you so much for everything you and your staff did in the run up to, and on the day of our wedding. It really was the best day of our lives and Bruisyard is just the most beautiful venue. We had so many compliments, not only of the venue, but also the professional and friendly staff - thank you!

Laura, where do we start? It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with you on our wedding. From the moment we saw Bruisyard, we knew it was the right place for us. It's beauty speaks for itself, but the unpretentious, relaxed and decidedly magical atmosphere that's created by you and the team made it such a clear choice for us. Thank you so much for bringing ideas to life - we were so delighted with how the day went and how the Barn looked. For us, it was just perfect. Your help, advice and guidance was simply invaluable and we felt very lucky to have you as such a bit part of our planning. Staying at the Hall with all our bridesmaids and ushers was a wonderful experience - one none of us will forget! We take nothing but incredibly happy memories from Bruisyard. It will always be in our hearts.

Just like to say a huge thank you to you and the team. The wedding weekend was superb and the calm and cool way you ran our day was much appreciated. I can truly say that you all played your part in a fantastic experience for us all.

Serena, Thank you so much for looking after us on the day of our wedding and the effort and detail you went to on the lead up to it. We truly felt like we were in great hands and nothing was too much trouble. Our day felt like a family dinner/ party and that's exactly we wanted.

We wanted to say a big thank you for everything you and the team did to make our wedding go so smoothly. We had an incredible day and could not have asked for it to go any better.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for the most fantastic wedding day and weekend. All of our guests remarked at how amazing it all was, particularly the food and never having an empty glass. The service execution was top notch and everything went perfectly. Thank you for looking after us so well.

A massive thank you to all the staff at Bruisyard Hall who made our wedding day so special. Everyone was so supportive and helpful. Serena helped to organise our wedding and was amazing throughout. It ran so smoothly and helped to make it as stress free as possible. The venue is stunning! We couldn't have chosen a better venue! Thank you!

We had a wonderful wedding day, we couldn't have wished for better. Bruisyard was the perfect venue for us. Staff were beyond helpful and made the planning easier with much less stress than we had imagined possible. We're so grateful for everyone for making our day so special.

We had the most amazing wedding and weekend at Bruisyard Hall. Thank you so much for everything! We will be back!

Laura, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your help in making our wedding weekend so perfect. The weekend far exceeded anything we ever expected it to be and our guests are still talking about what a great wedding it was. We are of course very sad it’s all over and hope to return to Bruisyard sometime in the future.

We really had a lovely, lovely time and it was a magical weekend. Thank you for all of your help!

Laura, I just wanted to say a massive thank you on behalf of John, myself and our families. Bruisyard was an absolutely stunning venue and all the staff were so helpful. A special thank you goes to you though, for insuring that everything went so smoothly. You were so helpful and it really made our day. We really appreciate it!
