At Ivy House Country Hotel, we have beautiful spaces to choose to say your vows.

We are licensed for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies allowing you to choose either our impressive 18th century thatched barn, our grand Ivy Hall or outside in the stunning Suffolk countryside. 

The Crooked Barn

At Ivy House Country Hotel we cater for weddings of all shapes and styles. The best location for intimate ceremonies and meals are held in The Crooked Barn.

This impressive 18th-century thatched property is also licensed to hold up to 90 people for a ceremony comfortably accommodating the bride and groom, photographer, musicians, registration offers and guests.

The Crooked Barn’s oak-beamed high roof and floor-to-ceiling windows overlook lush gardens, making it a favourite place for couples to get wed. 

For your wedding breakfast you can opt for an open or closed square layout, a horseshoe format, a long top table with smaller clusters of tables, or even two long tables 'Hogwarts-style' to suit larger parties of up to 60.

Ivy Hall

Ivy Hall really delivers the wow factor. This grand setting is perfect for larger ceremonies of between 90 - 220 guests.

Although it’s licensed to hold 250 people for an evening reception, it can seat a maximum of 220 for a sit-down meal. 

We cater for any style of wedding when it comes to food and drink, from a traditional three-course meal to an informal BBQ, hog roast or buffet with all your favourite nibbles. Our chef will work with you to create a menu you’ll both love and remember.

Ivy Lawns

Surrounded by evergreen pine trees in 21-acres of grounds, our outdoor ceremonies are held on the Ivy Hall lawn. 

Hire a tepee, marquee or outdoor awning adorned with fairy-lights for a dreamy outdoor wedding. 

We dress the space using the chairs from the hall and if the weather doesn't allow for the ceremony to be held outside, we'll move it to the barn. Together we'll make the call the day before.
