Civil Ceremony

The music's playing; the guests are waiting in the tudor hall as the bride makes her entrance.  The galleried hall seats up to 120 guests and the bride can walk the length of the hall enjoying the closeness of family and friends.

Before the civil ceremony the bride/partner sees the registrar in the adjoining drawing room.  This separate entrance offers complete privacy, so no sneak previews (and we can wind up the groom who can't see if the bride has arrived - or not).  You arrange your ceremony or partnership with registrars from Ipswich Registry Office. Contact Barbara Paternosta on 01473 292777  www.suffolk.gov.uk/BirthsMarriagesAndDeaths   And it's best to check availability of the registrars before committing to a venue. We are happy to hold a date for you while you do this.

After your ceremony you can take a private moment back in the drawing room (there'll be drinks there for you) before making your entrance among your guests gathered in the walled terrace or on the large lawn.  In just a short while the hall will be regorganised in case you need rain cover during the afternoon.

Whatever happens, your party has started......

Anniversary visits
