Hengrave Hall is a privately owned venue and it is not open to the public. Viewing is therefore arranged by appointment only. Please contact the events office for more information.

Can I get married in the Church?
This will depend on your Christian denomination. We are able to hold Roman Catholic, Methodist, Baptist or United Reform marriages in the Church provided that you fulfil the necessary religious requirements. Please note that the Bury St Edmunds Registrar is also required to be present at these church marriage services.

We are unable to hold Church of England weddings in the Church however we can accommodate wedding blessings and these are usually preceded by a civil ceremony in the Hall, earlier on the same day.

If you would like to have a Church of England wedding, we can recommend a number of beautiful Churches located nearby.

You will find all the contact details of the Clergy (click through) and Bury St Edmunds Registrars under our Recommended Suppliers Page.

My fiancé and I can’t decide whether to have a civil ceremony or a church wedding, what should we do?
Why not have both – well almost! You could have a civil ceremony in the Hall and then ask your guests to join you in the Church for the blessing of your marriage.

When should I contract the registrar/clergy?
We strongly recommend that you contact the registrar/clergy at the same time as you book your venue to confirm their availability and specific requirements.

Do you have accommodation available at Hengrave Hall?
We have twenty seven magnificent bedrooms at Hengrave Hall, which are only available to those attending a function at Hengrave Hall. It is the sole responsibility of the couple to arrange the accommodation, collect payment and make the reservations, this gives you full control over the venue. Additional accommodation is available for guests at nearby Golf and Country Spa Hotel, All Saints – just 5 minute from Hengrave Hall.

What lighting does Hengrave Hall provide during the evening for our wedding?
Within the banqueting hall (dance floor) the only lighting is the wall lights as you see, we highly recommend that you ensure you evening entertainment bring their own or alternatively hire this from Dreamwave Events. In the Courtyard and West Terrace Hengrave put small white lanterns (with tea light) on to all the outside tables (Weather permitting) and the house is washed in light. To enhance this further Dreamwave Events can offer festoon lighting in the courtyard and shepherd crooks with hanging lights in on the West Terrace, all which enhance the beautiful architecture of Hengrave.
