Suffolk Wedding Venue – The Barn Suffolk

I was delighted to visit a brand new Suffolk wedding venue called, appropriately enough, The Barn Suffolk. Located in the heart of the Suffolk Coastal area, The Barn Suffolk is just 5 miles from Woodbridge and 7 miles from Ipswich. This makes it easy for guests coming from further afield to find accommodation and have a short taxi ride back after the wedding.

Jane and her husband Adrian renovated the farm house ten years ago, then began work on the outbuildings. The Barn Suffolk is now ready for events and functions of all kinds, and I can say with all honesty, it will be a fabulous location for a rustic, rural wedding.

Here, Biggles show me the courtyard with The Barn behind him.

There is a covered area, ideal for setting up a bar.

Inside The Barn is a double-height main area, with a galleried upper level, which was the former grain loft. There is a small library there, but it would be an ideal space for musicians to play.

The Barn is stunning enough as it is, but could be decorated in myriad different ways and styles. I can’t wait to see it fully dressed for a wedding. Up to 100 guests can be seated at circular tables of 10.

The original cart entrance is now a fully-glazed wall, which means there is plenty of natural light flooding The Barn.

Jane and Adrian allow wedding couples to use their absolutely beautiful gardens for their wedding photos. As a wedding photographer in Suffolk, I love using the natural landscape as a backdrop to my countryside wedding photography. The changing of the seasons mean a constantly changing and evolving backdrop. So all weddings at The Barn Suffolk will be unique. At the moment the bluebells are just finishing, but the roses are about to bloom in abundance.

The Hayloft, adjacent to The Barn, is available to couples holding their wedding at The Barn Suffolk. It is an ideal space for the bridal preparations, and for the bride and groom to spend their first night as a married couple. Jane and Adrian have managed to create a contemporary living space whilst still retaining the character of this ancient farm building.
