The Compasses at Pattiswick Full Description
We are blessed with a wonderful location! A beautiful old building with contemporary design, perfect for intimate gatherings, a spectacular setting with uninterrupted views and a convenient location, only a mile from one of the most accessible roads in East Anglia. But these are qualities shared with many fantastic venues across the country. However we believe your wedding day is much more than a lovely view or an attractive building. It’s about people! From the moment you celebrate your engagement, your wedding journey is about sharing the most special day of your lives with the people around you. Making new bonds, creating new friendships and rekindling family ties. And that is why our first question will always be, 'what vision do you have for your wedding day?' We are not lovers of packages and we are not lovers of formulaic weddings or processing plants! Our role in this journey is to help you create the day you dreamt of and fit it to the budget you are comfortable with. Sharing your wedding day at The Compasses is a great honour for us. And we will never forget that.

A perfect day.
We fell in love with the Compasses the minute we arrived for one of their open days. It wasn’t our first wedding venue to view but was going to be our last. Totally sold by the genuine warmth from every staff member and even the suppliers we met along with the beautiful venue itself. So full of character and a perfect layout that made us feel completely comfortable and at home. Jono and Jane, the owners, and the entire team couldn’t have done enough. Planning was made super simple thanks to the wonderful Charlaine who, even though she had so many weddings to organise, still managed to make us feel like we were the only couple she had! The wedding and reception itself was beyond our expectations, absolutely perfect. Sarah was such a blessing to have in the bridal room and Della and Jordane had everything completely under control. They made us feel so relaxed and confident that we didn’t need to worry about a thing and just get on with enjoying our day. Choosing the Compasses was the best decision. If only we could do it all over again. Thank you so much to the whole team for making it truly wonderful.

The most special day
We had our wedding at the compasses on Sunday 20th August and had the most magical day. Both me and my now husband have said we had the best day of our lives, Della and the whole team made the day flawless from start to finish. They were so helpful with the children and with the few small hiccups throughout the day from guests they made none of this an issue and sorted everything with ease. The day was absolutely perfect and we cannot thank them enough, we wish we could do this day over and over again there is not a single thing we would change.

Perfect venue
The compasses is an amazing venue with indoor and outdoor space. It also has a bride room which allows the bride and groom some space during the day to take a breath. We loved the venue and the location. The team are always willing to help and go above and beyond so I cannot recommend them enough.

Perfect Venue, wonderful team
The Compasses At Pattiswick is such a unique and gorgeous venue. We knew as soon as we sat down with Jono this was where we wanted our wedding. Jono not only showed us around the venue but helped us to form our vision of the day using his expertise to help guide us. Charlaine was our main point of contact for all things leading up to the big day and she couldn't have been more attentive and wonderful. Helping us with every worry, last minute catastrophe and accommodating every mad request that comes with going slightly mad planning. The lovely "Bridal prep room mum" was excellent at helping everyone stay calm and hydrated whilst getting ready. Della did an incredible job putting together our vision, setting up all our decor and spending the day with us ensuing we didn't have to worry about anything she kept the day moving according to schedule and helped with all the little surprises for our guests. You couldn't ask for a better team to make your dream wedding day a reality or a more picturesque venue. Especially when having a smaller more relaxed day this venue is all class and coziness. Thanks so much to the team you were all amazing and we are so thankful for all your hard work! Our wedding day was perfect!

Such a Perfect Day!
We want to thank each and every one of you for the fantastic day that we had! I could never imagine such a perfect day, I think you absorbed every tiny ounce of stress away from us and we both could just relax on the day! Della and the team on the day were absolute perfection, set everything up perfectly and kept us running smoothly. I really can not thank you all enough. I wish we could do it all over again!
