Full Description
The Wedding Barn at Old Hall is a beautiful Grade II listed Suffolk barn which has recently been restored to its original glory. The main body of the barn provides a picturesque wedding venue, whilst one of its wings doubles up as The Bauble Barn, our seasonal family-run Christmas tree and decoration shop, which was opened in November 2019. Rurally located and nestled next to the pretty village of Steeple Bumpstead, The Wedding Barn creates the perfect backdrop to your most magical and special day. Catering for weddings of up to 100 guests, The Wedding Barn offers both indoor and outdoor areas to enjoy - the barn itself can house a ceremony, wedding breakfast and dancefloor, with a built-in bar area that leads onto a private courtyard so that the celebrations can continue outside. At The Wedding Barn we accept a limited number of bookings throughout the summer months so that the space and grounds are allowed to ‘rest’ and not become overused, making for a pristine canvas for your wedding day. The hire period is from 9am the day before your wedding until midday the day after your wedding, giving you plenty of time to decorate the space to your heart’s desire.

The most perfect venue
We had our wedding at The Wedding Barn in June this year after having had to postpone it as a result of Covid. It was SO worth the wait - the barn itself is just magnificent, so much bigger in person than in the photos. We had our actual wedding ceremony in the nearby church, and then the wedding reception at The Wedding Barn. Can't recommend enough, simply magical.
