Your wedding at Somerleyton

Lara and I are genuinely flattered you are considering Somerleyton for your wedding, whether you are looking regionally or nationally, the market offers a dazzling and no doubt confusing array of grand houses, beautiful barns or smart hotels to choose from, in all this Somerleyton has one undisputed claim, we are the most easterly venue in the whole Kingdom! As we hope these photographs show, Somerleyton is also a truly original house, a fine old Jacobean Manor, lavishly restored and enriched in the Italianate style in the early Victorian era. Two fine towers dominate the skyline competing with the notable collection of specimen trees in the arboretum, a pair of stags guard the east front courtyard carved by Prince Albert’s favourite sculptor, John Thomas but perhaps the most enchanting and impressive view is of the west front of the hall with the restored Nesfield parterre which now rivals the best in the country. It is out here and in the adjacent winter gardens that we feel we can give your wedding day something so special and unique to you with the variety of beautiful spaces around which to plan your occasion.

The perfect wedding

For those living in Norfolk & Suffolk Somerleyton is very much a local favourite stately home (we are the only one around here) so we are delighted to host day weddings and / or receptions. For those further afield, we are equally at home with full weekend house party weddings which gives our clients the chance to show off and entertain their guests in sumptuous style over a number of days and nights. We can also accommodate large Asian and Indian Weddings sleeping a maximum of 32 guests based on double occupancy.

Something special awaits you at Somerleyton

If you are coming from afar we do offer an upscale B&B, which we call ‘Chambres et Champagne’, for up to thirty guests at Somerleyton Hall. Our divine butlers Matthew & Peter greet you with a glass of champagne and escort you to charming bedroom before heading down for a sumptuous family dinner party before your big day. Matthew plays the grand piano as you descend the main staircase and yes more champagne flows. During dinner your bedroom is turned down ready for a goodnight sleep before our special Somerleyton breakfast prepared by our superb chef James Santillo and Matthew & Peter are on hand to help with any last minute creases or buttonholes. When at last the day of celebrations is over, a night cap or a last dance around the piano or a cognac by the fire. We are proud of how well we do ‘chambres et champagne’ and how much it adds to the happy memories and relaxing and homely nature of your big weekend – we do recognise you have to travel a bit further to get to Somerleyton but we are confident we have learned how to make that worth your while.

We were blown away by the hospitality of Hugh & Lara
