Imagine a moated Tudor Hall set within a 400 acre deer park, with magnificent Grade 1 listed gardens as the backdrop to one of the biggest day of your life. Helmingham Hall Gardens is a truly picturesque venue for your ideal country wedding. We are fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies in The Coach House or St Mary's Church is a short stroll away. Take full advantage of the gardens and surrounding parkland for your photos while your guests enjoy Champagne and canapés on the Parterre, before heading to the marquee in front of the Hall for the evening’s celebrations, or back to The Coach House for an intimate wedding breakfast. Wedding celebration ceremonies or blessings can also be held in the beautiful gardens and parkland, giving you more freedom and flexibility when planning your dream ceremony. Wedding Receptions The Coach House is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding, comfortably seating 65 guests for a wedding breakfast and a smaller connected area that is perfect for dancing the night away. In the summer months, guests can spill out into the courtyard and explore the romantic gardens. Our exclusive Suffolk wedding venue has high ceilings and large windows, offering a great space with a very special ambiance. Marquee wedding receptions in our 400 acre deer park are held adjacent to the magnificent Tudor Hall, just a short walk from the gardens. Your chosen structure – be it traditional or modern marquee, tipi or stretch tent – will be put up for your wedding to your exact specifications. With limited dates available per year, our marquee wedding receptions are a unique and exclusive way to celebrate your special day. As your guests sit down to the wedding breakfast, the views of the moated Hall, ancient oak trees and rolling countryside are truly second to none. There is no maximum limit to the number of guests you can have for your wedding breakfast, and your guests are also free to explore the gardens during the day.

A very special place to get married...
The beautiful gardens of Helmingham Hall created the perfect setting for our wedding in June. We got married in St Mary’s church within the estate and then led our guests across the grounds, round the historic moated house and into the beautiful gardens for our welcome drinks, followed by the reception in tipis. The whole day was just magical, the sun was shining and the gardens were full of colour - our guests kept asking us how we found the venue! Katy & Sam in the events team were fantastic from day one - answering our many questions and advising on which suppliers to use, all of which were great! We had the flexibility to design our wedding exactly as we wanted which made it very personal and special for us. We would recommend Helmingham to anyone looking for a beautiful and unique place to get married and we look forward to visiting the gardens for many years to come :) Thank you!
