Helmingham Hall Garden Weddings

If you’ve dreamed of an outdoor wedding, then Helmingham Hall Gardens is the perfect place to say “I do”.  Set within a 400 acre deer park, in the grounds of a magnificent stately home, our Grade 1 listed gardens are a glorious backdrop to both civil and religious ceremonies. Helmingham Hall Gardens are located in the stunning Suffolk countryside, in easy reach of Ipswich, Stowmarket and Woodbridge.


Suffolk’s premier garden wedding venue

Our gardens are simply beautiful – and it’s not just us who say so! Helmingham Hall Gardens were named 2017 Garden of the Year by the prestigious Historic Houses Association.


From ceremony-only events with use of the gardens for photos to all-day events combining a church/civil ceremony and a marquee: we can cater to weddings of all sizes. We welcome wedding celebrations and blessings too, giving you freedom and flexibility when planning your special day.

Garden wedding specialists

Our marquees and tipis are created to your exact specification, creating a stunning showpiece for your wedding – regardless of what the great British weather has in store!


We are not a wedding factory. We open Helmingham Hall Gardens just a few times a year for weddings, giving you the time and space to design a wedding day that is unique and personal to you.

Innovative dining

Our carefully sourced suppliers take care of all the food so it’s one less thing for you to worry about. From a three-course sit down meal to an evening hog roast, mezze or even a doughnut truck – we make it happen!

Relaxed yet traditional

With a church on the grounds, indoor venues and a long, tree-lined driveway, Helmingham allows you to start your day in the traditional way then relax into the afternoon and evening.  From vintage fairy lights and light-up letters to garden games, have fun designing your special day.

Dog and family friendly

With acres of parkland to explore, Helmingham Hall Gardens provide all the space you and your guests need to relax. We welcome supervised children and even your four-legged friends!
