At The Ickworth luxury hotel and wedding venue in Suffolk, newlyweds hold hands in the gardens

Suffolk weddings

Say ‘I do’ with a stately home wedding on the Ickworth estate.

Whether you want a simple ceremony in one of our elegant rooms or a private country house all to yourself, we’ll tailor your day to suit you.

Bespoke weddings

At The Ickworth, we take a personal approach to weddings – it’s your big day, after all. Choose from a selection of stately rooms for your ceremony, or hire the whole hotel for a truly magical experience.

Our Events Manager will be on hand to ensure your perfect day runs smoothly from start to finish, with help from our experienced events team. Whatever the dietary requirements of you and your guests, our Head Chef will prepare a delightful menu to please all palates.

From intimate receptions of up to 30 friends and family members, to a marquee of 200 guests, we can accommodate ceremonies of all sizes. Below, you’ll find details of the rooms available for hire and exclusive use.

Our rooms

We have two elegant rooms available to hire for your ceremony and reception, while the bright conservatory comes with our exclusive-use weddings. If you’re planning a late-spring or summer wedding, head out onto the Terrace and into the sunshine for drinks and photographs.

The Library at The Ickworth, a hotel and wedding venue in Suffolk

The Library

The Library is located on the ground floor of the hotel, with high ceilings and tall windows that look out onto Italianate gardens. A large bookshelf lines the back wall, while the Hervey family history decorates the rest of the room. The Library can host 45 guests for a ceremony, or up to 40 for a drinks reception or breakfast.

The Boardroom

With a traditional chandelier, wood panelling adorning the walls and views over Ickworth parkland, the Boardroom is a simple and graceful setting. Enjoy an intimate ceremony for up to 35 guests, or a wedding breakfast or drinks reception with 30 guests.

The Conservatory

Light pours in through the glass roof and the windows rise from floor to ceiling, while vines climb the inner wall. The Conservatory is open and bright, with views over the Terrace. It’s available with exclusive use of the hotel, and accommodates up to 60 guests.

The Terrace

When the sun is shining, step out onto the Terrace. Set in the hotel’s walled garden, the Terrace is a wonderful place to sip Pimm’s with your guests in the summer, or to capture the moment with a photograph by the beautiful red-brick wall.

Exclusive use

For a truly wonderful day dedicated entirely to you, we offer a number of exclusive use options. Get married in your very own private country house, or hire out the whole hotel.

The Garden Room can host a ceremony for up to 50 guests, with tall, wide windows looking out onto the gardens.
