Most magical wedding
Where to begin?! Thank you so so much for all your hardwork that went into making our wedding so perfect. From day 1 you made it all so easy and stress free, even putting up with my constant emails! Every part of the day was perfect from the venue, food and even the weather! We really cannot thank you enough for the most magical wedding ever.

A perfect time was had by all
We visited Bruisyard on a bit of a whim after we saw an advert for a wedding fair at the last minute. We’d never been before and were taken aback with how beautiful it was as we drove up! The fair was brilliant and we got lots of ideas from suppliers and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We actually met Katie when we first arrived and she told us that the hall was open to look around or to have a guided tour. It was so stunning, we couldn’t resist! We were shown around and told about the intimate wedding packages, which sounded like exactly the kind of thing we were considering for our wedding. As we drove away that day, we both realised that we’d probably just seen the place that we wanted to get married! This was never the purpose of our visit that day but the staff and the hall itself really charmed us. Despite a few visits to other venues, nothing could match Bruisyard and we quickly arranged to visit again and meet with Katie to discuss options for our day. Once the planning process really began, it became clear we’d made the right choice. Katie was amazing and talked us through everything so clearly. At no point did we ever feel pressured into making decisions and we both felt like nothing was too much trouble for the Bruisyard team. From start to finish, Katie worked with us, answering our (hundreds of!) questions and making us feel like part of the Bruisyard family. When the day finally came for our wedding, everything just felt so easy and relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Our whole family were able to stay in the hall the night before, which meant everything was calm on the day. All staff were so efficient and things just seemed to happen without us even seeing anyone do them! We honestly couldn’t have asked for more. Even when the whole village had a power cut, we didn’t even notice! Within 30 minutes, a tractor arrived with a generator and nothing was delayed...if nobody had told me the power was out, I would have had no idea at all! Champagne kept flowing, canapés were served and the string quartet played whilst we all enjoyed the beautiful grounds in the sunshine. A perfect time was had by all and we cannot thank Bruisyard enough. A family breakfast on the morning after the wedding just topped the whole occasion off and gave us more time to appreciate the incredible setting. We wouldn’t hesitate to encourage anyone to visit Bruisyard - wedding or not! But it really is the ideal setting for the day of your dreams.

We couldn't have chosen a better venue
We had the best weekend of our lives with our friends and family and we had sunshine for the whole thing! We had a pre-wedding meal with our close family and friends on the Friday in the stunning dining room of Bruisyard Hall, the most memorable wedding on the Saturday in the barn which ran so smoothly thanks to the Bruisyard team, and a beautiful walk around Bruisyard’s land followed by a mini party on the sun soaked lawn and patio on the Sunday. It was everything we ever dreamed of! We couldn’t have chosen a better venue to help achieve the wedding we wanted. Thank you again to Katie and all the team at Bruisyard who are so good at what they do.

You and your staff are fantastic!
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! I attach a couple of our guests photos from the day, which are by no means professional however they are nice photos. As soon as our professional photos come through I will send some over. Thank you again for everything and making our first day as Mr&Mrs such a memorable one.

You will not be disappointed with Bruisyard Hall!!
Bruisyard Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding last week. From the day we viewed the hall and barn, we knew it was where we wanted our wedding. Bethany has been so helpful in the planning and organisation over the last few months and we always had our questions answered quickly. The venue looked amazing on the day and I was so surprised at how smoothly everything went. The house is an amazing place to stay and made the weekend even more special. If you're planning a wedding, you will not be disappointed with Bruisyard Hall!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Every wedding at Bruisyard is so different as we like to be as flexible as we can so it's so hard to pick out the 'best' wedding!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Find a venue that takes your breathe away but keep your budget in mind or look at ways if making it work. And have fun! Let your wedding venue/ planner/ coordinator help out where they can and ensure you enjoy the whole process.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Oh, there's so many!! One couple planted an oak tree within our estate (oak as you know, being the 80th wedding anniversary) just like the bride's grandparents did on their wedding day!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Intimate, relaxed, refined, rustic and charming

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There's so many spots we can barely choose a 'best' one. We love seeing all of the informal shots, of family and friends, over their whole stay with us, just having fun and creating memories.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Of course - but we couldn't say who!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Having had the opportunity to taste soooo many canapés, this is a tough one! We love the Gressingham duck breast with baby spinach on a potato rosti.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

You can't beat our Pulled pork with BBQ sauce and root vegetable slaw in a brioche bun served near the end of the days celebrations.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

It's steeped in history yet has isn't stuffy like some ancient venues. The Hall really does welcome you when you arrive and is a home-from-home.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The high quality - from the grounds and standard of accommodation to the service we provide to every couple and event.
