Country house or barn? At Bruisyard, you don't have to choose - and 700 acres are thrown in for good measure.

THE BEST WEEKEND WEDDING VENUES

The main hall can sleep you and 18 of your A-team; four more guests can make themselves at home in the barn bedrooms. The medieval barn is kitted out as party central, with two large beam-lined spaces, and a state-of-the-art sound system, plus soundproofing. Pump up the volume!

Sitting in its own 700-acre chunk of Suffolk countryside, Bruisyard Hall has more of a country-house party pad vibe, rather than a stuffy venue feel, with plenty of room for creativity if you and your groom want to bring your own ideas to the party.

There are two separate areas - the medieval hall and the banqueting hall - for the ceremony and reception, as well as a minstrel gallery, complete with squishy leather sofas.

Ceremony capacity: 140; Packages per person: £47; Corkage: £0
