Nestled on the outskirts of Sutton, Woodhall Manor and its leafy grounds plays host to both civil ceremonies and post-nuptial receptions.

The Scene at Woodhall Manor Suffolk

As you drive up to this exclusive hire wedding venue in Suffolk, you’ll be taken aback by its rustic grandeur. The red-brick, ivy-clad façade, high-stacked chimneys and leaded windows point to its rich heritage. Inside, you’ll find period interiors indicative of its Tudor roots, including oak-panelled dining rooms, intricate ceilings and hand-carved wood details.

The manor’s décor is complemented by a traditional walled garden with pretty archways and water features. Not to mention the Ballroom with exposed wood beams, crystal light fittings and an original fireplace. Yet, other event spaces at Woodhall Manor are much more contemporary.

Namely, the Garden Lounge with mesmerising feather and chandelier ceiling, colour-changing mood lighting, cocktail bar and mirrored wall panels. Additionally, the light and airy Cherry Blossom room offers a modern and sophisticated contrast to the Manor’s antique interiors.  

You can also incorporate a marquee within the estate’s extensive grounds to accommodate additional guests. And even end your evening celebrations with a romantic firework display.

Or, if you’d like a religious service, All Saints Church in Sutton is a lovely alternative.
