Married in Suffolk


Published on 26 October 2017 by Veronica Cowlin

When it comes to getting married, the choices couples are faced with seem almost limitless. There's the the dress to consider, the menu for the wedding breakfast, a colour scheme for the flowers, music for the reception and so the list goes on...

The biggest decision perhaps, is choosing the perfect venue for the reception and we are spoilt for choice here in the Heart of Suffolk with a range of places which include fabulous hotels, ancient barns, a coach house, a Tudor mansion and other places with bags of character, ideal for the Big Occasion.

One of these is Abbot's Hall, at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket. A Grade II Listed Queen Anne-style hall, it is just a five minute walk from the town's churches and registry office and with its pretty woodland, well-kept lawns, walled garden and orangery, the location offers a stunning backdrop for such a special day and some great opportunities for the all-important wedding pictures.

A marquee, which has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England, has made the venue suitable for functions, providing a valuable resource for the local community as well essential income for the Museum of East Anglian Life. Every function booked at the venue will help to support the running of the museum and preserve its local heritage for generations to come.

On hand to help with organising is Marie Clarke, an award-winning wedding planner of over 20 years' experience, who has recently been appointed to Abbot's Hall Weddings to guide couples as they plan for their big day.
