Absolutely Perfect
We knew as soon as we visited Sutton Bonington Hall it was the right place for our wedding. We wanted a small wedding ceremony in the day with 30 guests and up to 100 for the party at night and it was absolutely perfect for this! There is a very comforting and welcoming atmosphere at the hall. Claire is lovely and really made sure our day was special for us and Jel from Portfolio Events was absolutely amazing in liaising with us in the build up to the day and on the day she went above and beyond for us. She made sure everything was perfect and is so happy and friendly. She even helped with our one year old! Thank you to both Claire and Jel for making sure we had the most perfect day. Our guests absolutely loved the venue. The wedding breakfast in the library the next morning was so special as well. Thank you Claire.

The Perfect Wedding Venue
The perfect wedding venue, from the moment we first visited the Hall we knew we wanted to have our big day here. The building and gardens hold so much character, truly a unique venue for an intimate wedding. We can't speak highly enough of Claire the owner and the catering company Portfolio Events who made our wedding as stress-free and enjoyable as possible!

Truly the most amazing day
Thank you so so much for all your hard work in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. It was truly the most amazing day. It was just incredible. Charlotte thank you for working with us over the last months to pull everything together. The food was fabulous and Ryan (Greg’s friend) commented that he felt so included in having good food with no fuss about the dietaries! So I just wanted to pass on that he had said thank you so much. The organisation of the day was impeccable and Jel thank you for being so lovely at keeping us on time even when we were flying around trying to talk to everybody. I can’t thank you all enough.

Best Day Ever!
We had the most incredible wedding at Sutton Bonington Hall, and cannot recommend it highly enough as a venue. We were looking for somewhere that would cater for 100 guests, but would still feel cosy and intimate. Sutton Bonington was perfect in this respect, as it’s first and foremost a family home. The house and gardens are beautiful, and there are several different rooms and spaces which meant that our guests could spread out during the afternoon and evening. We were particularly keen to have somewhere quieter for our more introverted guests to retreat, and the library was perfect for this. Claire, the owner, was so helpful from the very first meeting and knows the house and gardens well, so she was able to give great recommendations for how to structure our day. She was also extremely patient and answered all our many questions! Portfolio Events are the preferred suppliers for catering and they also act as event managers as well. Again, we cannot recommend them highly enough. The food was absolutely delicious, lots of people said how good it was, including our guests with special dietary requirements. They were really flexible and enabled us to tailor the food and drinks menus to suit us. Charlotte met with us in advance and helped us plan the day in terms of food and timings etc. and helped us make sure the day went as smoothly as possible and we didn't have to worry about anything on the day. She was really organised and took such detailed notes of what we wanted, and helped us make it really personal and unique to us. We were able to set up the afternoon before, which meant we didn't have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding. On the day, Jel and the team were fantastic! All our guests said how helpful and friendly the staff were, and the team made Tom and I feel so special. They brought us drinks especially and made sure we got food throughout the day (it's easy to miss out on such a whirlwind of a day!) There were also a couple of things that didn't go to plan (due to me feeling unwell!), but Jel and the team were incredibly flexible and worked with our bridal party to adapt to the situation and made me feel so supported. It was wonderful to know that we were in such experienced and capable hands, and we didn't have to worry on the day at all. In terms of entertainment we were able to have garden games during the afternoon, and a Silent Disco in the evening. We also had a Photo Booth in the main entrance hall. It was really special to be able to stay in the bridal suite on the evening of the wedding - and lovely to be able to just head upstairs after our guests were gone. On the morning after, Claire had kindly set up breakfast for Tom and I in the Library - which was such a lovely touch and a great way to end an amazing experience. We wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much for letting us celebrate our wedding at your family home Claire, and to Charlotte, Jel and the rest of the Portfolio Team for making our day so special.

The catering staff were attentive and the food delicious and the venue itself is beautiful.
I would recommend this venue to anyone. We held my Daughters wedding reception here and the owners and staff couldn't have been more caring to ensure the day went off superbly despite the semi relaxed covid restrictions. The catering staff were attentive and the food delicious and the venue itself is beautiful.
